Good luck. I did not mean that hte Samsung is bad, but I think there are better choices for the price and if you can, just exchange it. 

 

Reverse ghosting is when you see a trace of something as it moves across the screen.

The monitor came in. After tweaking some settings it's looking pretty good. The only real downside is the stand. It's kind of wobbly. But, I can sandwich it between my speakers and it doesn't wobble at all.

 

I'm definitely not going to get 2 more of these though. I'll use this until the 2012 monitors start rolling out and then sell it.

 

VA278Q

 

^I just heard about that one. The resolution is definitely appealing. I want to know how much it costs, what it's response time is, and to see some reviews claiming that it is awesome for gaming.

Good you're happy with the screen.

 

That new ASUS will be around 2x the cost of a full HD one, same as all those from Hazro and Dell.

Yeah. Hopefully it has a relatively low response time/input lag. I may want to go for one really nice screen instead of 3 screens due to me playing a lot of games on a system that can only support one screen anyway (the Xbox). We'll see though. This Samsung can hold me over until some new stuff comes out.

I will be waiting for a 'cheap' 2560x1440 monitor too. I hope this Asus can bring some changes to the current lineup and make competition a bit better and make prices drop a bit. I also hope it will fix the problems of other hi-resolution screens like the Dell one. If so, I will definitely be buying one sooner or later.

Check out the LG DM92. It could be a game changing monitor if it comes in at 1080P. Basically no bezel, so it'd be perfect for triple screen gaming. Plus, it's an IPS, so it'll look good too. Hope it doesn't cost an arm and a leg.

I'm replacing it with one of these: Samsung S27A500H

 

 

Starting off with one, but will (likely) buy two more as soon as I have some more money.

 

Originally, I was planning on getting a Dell U2711, but I decided that going for triple monitors would be awesome. Besides, since I play PC as well as Xbox games, it makes sense to have a 1080P monitor. No stretching or black bars for me.


That's odd, my Hanns-G 281D from 2008 is starting to do the same thing. I'm thinking it could be a software issue, due to upgraded Catalyst drivers perhaps. In any case, I'm looking for a new monitor, the contrast and black levels are horrible on this thing. 

 

Do you think the Samsung S27A500H is a big improvement from the Hanns G one?

 

I was thinking about getting Samsung SA850 27" with PLS panel. It might be better to wait for new models to come out though.. Not sure, the price is still pretty high on this one, it ought to drop some soon I reckon.

I wouldn't recommend the S27A550H. Mine has developed a serious defect within a few days of owning it. The colors are extremely whacked out and the contrast is crazy. No amount of tweaking of the settings will fix it. I've got an RMA and will ship it back to Newegg later today.

 

A friend of mine bought a S27A550H the same day I did and his now has 2 dead pixels. When he first got it it didn't have any.

 

It looked pretty good when I first got it, but not good enough. If the LG DM92 gets bad reviews then I am going to just say 'screw it' and get a Dell Ultrasharp.

 

 

Edit: The S27A550H also has a horrible stand. I like the idea, but it's just not stable enough. Just moving my mouse around would make the monitor wobble.

 

As for the Hanns-G 281D, it's not a software thing. Both my computer and my Xbox do the flashing black screen thing. It has to do with some poor quality caps. There are a lot of Google results of people fixing it by replacing the caps (the stock ones bulge out).

Here, nothing special. My CPU is clocked to 3.7ghz and my audio device is a US-100. I will be getting a 7970 soon enough thankfully.

Shogunner, what is the software that you are using to show your specs?
