    No, they don't have an OSD or scaler (which also means low input lag).
    Yes, they will work with a 5870/5850. All it needs is a dual-link DVI output.

    Whoever made the compatibility chart is an idiot.
    If they had paid someone who actually knew what they were talking about to make it, as well as things like the manual, they probably wouldn't be as cheap as they are.

    Perhaps the cards don't display the Bios screens. I have read people mentioning this issue, but I'm not sure which cards it applies to(too much reading about these monitors :tired: )

    It'll be early June before they will be available to ebay vendors (at the extreme earliest) so don't expect these on our shores till late June at the earliest, having said that it could be any-time till mid to late august without unreasonable delay.

    As far as I know the haven't started the mass-manufacturing of the model B PCB's, which were also to be sold as a replacement board for those with model c's.

    Edit: this is for the overclockable model B variants, not the 120hz ones.

    Will they be raising the prices on these highly sought after revisions?

    I suspect at first they will be quite inflated (~$500) but it shouldn't be long befor they return to a similar price to the others (~$350)

    currently revision B models go on ebay for $500-$600 so I don't imagine that the release (if you can call it that) prices would be any higher.

    Awesome, I will wait. Also, what are the ebayers labelling the B revisions as ? Can't find anything referring to which revision they are selling.

    it looks like there aren't any listed at the moment ( I cant find any), there were a few listed a couple of weeks ago for literally ~$500.

    If you are interested go trawl through the OCN thread, there is much more there.

    The new batch of 120Hz monitors has been released and the first round has been sold. They were originally going to be sold on OCN but they stopped the sales on their site as its against the rules.

    They are selling for ~$465.00

    Each round has 100 monitors for sale next round is next week.

    I dont know if i can link to the website but im sure you can find it easily enough.

    Just read through this thread and these sound like a great alternative to the Dell 27" screens.

    Has anyone tested the screens for any input lag with regards to fighting games?

    Also, could someone link me where the release of the B revision is being sold so I can keep an eye out :thumbup:

    Thanks mate :thumbup:.

    Also, sorry for the n00b questions, but would it be better to wait for the 120hz or get the 100hz screens? Could someone please explain why OCing the monitor would be better?

    I wonder if it would be possible to get one of the models which supports HDMI to have the OC feature....

    I wonder if they will drop in price. 50% markup on the Q270SE is a little much for me :(

    You need dual link DVI for anything higher that 60hz IIRC (happy to be proven wrong here)

    Any reason for wanting to use HDMI?

    These also have a 1 year warranty with no shipping cost back to Korea. That alone is worth the premium to me.

    Sorry if this sounds like im trying to sell this product, just excited about my purchase.

    When the monitor lands here hopefully next week i will post some photos, im mounting it on a 7Flex VESA arm. Might even make a photo tutorial on removing the stand.

    I emailed green-sum about buying a 2B through them, this is the reply (to my second email):



    I will keep on it.
