Only $259 now! nod

This made the FP back in July when it was $279, but it's now $20 less. This is the matte version, and it doesn't have much glare at all, unlike the glossy versions.

I purchased two of these last week from "dream-seller" to have have a dual QHD setup and they both arrived in 2 business days FedEx International Express from Korea. No dead pixels, perfect setup, boxes in great condition. They work amazingly well! I couldn't be happier.

This monitor has a Samsung PLS panel and is equivalent to the QNIX QX2710; s The links are for the matte version, but there is also a glossy version available for the same price. Note, this monitor only has input for Dual-Link DVI, so your desktop just needs a decent DVI port--even cheap $30 cards have this.

Here's a great review from TekSyndicate on this exact model:

I know there have been many of these postings lately, but for $259 (the lowest price ever) and the positive reviews--mine included--you can't beat this deal!

Can anyone please help me figure out which graphics card I can buy to get 2 of these to run off it.

I can not for the life of me, find a card with 2 X dual link DVI-D ports
there are a bunch out there. Check newegg and filter cards with 2xDVI. check the pics and make sure the DVI ports looks like a dual-link port image [overclock.net]

No, I didn't have to get two cards. I did get an EVGA GeForce GTX 650 card because it has two DVI ports, whereas my older GeForce GT 240 only had one. I figured that was the easiest way to do the dual monitor setup, and it worked right out of the box.
To be more specific, your GTX 650 had 2 Dual-Link DVI ports Stick Out Tongue

A lot of video cards out there that have 2 DVI ports typically only have 1 that's Dual Link (with the other being Single Link)

Seems like 8ms response time would lead to ghosting for games/sports/action movies--is this no longer the case?

I've read it is closer to 4 or 6ms.

120 hz helps as well.

The biggest thing that scares me about these is the deal pixel issue and shipping back to SK.

I had to ship one back to SK that was DOA (purchased from green-sum). I didn't have to pay any shipping fees. Don't know if Dream Seller will be as good.

Currently, yes. It can handle a higher res, but there is no sound channel. HDMI can't hand this resolution.

Next revision of HDMI should be better.

I wish they'd just kill off hdmi and go to displayport. It is superior in almost every way, is backwards compatible with hdmi, and has no licensing cost.
thanks, I was holding out to see if HDMI version will be cheaper, this price is too good!

The AC adapter is like a laptop adapter. It consists of 2 parts, the AC charging part and the wall cable.

It ships with the wall cable that fits South Korea plugs (the male end)

However, the female end is actually just a regular computer/power supply cable.

So if you have any spare computer power cables (..which I have too many..) then you're good to go!

Dual-link DVI does not mean two DVI ports, it is just a port that can specifically handle higher resolutions like this monitor. You need a compatible dual-link dvi cable as well as a video card with a dual-link dvi port. There are definitely cards with two dual-link ports, but they are most likely on the high end. You could try for a display port adapter though.

Do these normally have US-style two prong power cords though? Looks like this specific model only has a Type C South Korean plug.

After watching the video review.. it appears that it comes with an external brick with a Korean power cord. However, you can toss the Korean power cord and use a regular old USA-style PC power cord.

Anyone else, please let me know if I am mistaken about this. =)

It has 2 Dual DVI ports. One DVI-I and one DVI-D. It works fine with the DVI-I I am running one with a DVI-I port.
