    My old monitor's the 29WK600

    - contrast is about the same to be honest. On both monitors the blacks look black with the lights on and grey with the lights off
    - like I said, for me personally it's not a problem. Colours look better on the iiyama, but my old monitor wasn't a native 8bit display
    - my old monitor is 75Hz and the iiyama looks much better in motion. Just moving the mouse or scrolling in a browser feels way smoother. You notice the difference especially after going back, once used to the faster monitor

    Mine came. Really like it, solid. Haven't had time to adjust it yet or play but will tomorrow. Glad I didnt go for two of them, fits nicely with my Dell 27" 1440p 144h gsync. Had I gone for two it would of been overwhelming.

    Was looking at one of these widescreen monitors.
    Currently have 1080p
    Just done math the same 1920x1080=2,073,600
    Does this mean that my fps will half?

    Currently have i7 2600(4.2ghz)
    16gm ram
    Vega 56 (950,1000)

    Was looking at standard 27inch 1440p but this would get rid of my dual screen setup (though since getting Vega 56 only have the connection for 1 monitor)

    If I have an idea how this will effect my setup I can look to buy one. Unless I would require a full upgrade will look into a full build.

    How are the out of the box colours?

    If anyone finds a profile or some good settings, let me know :D

    Should be getting mine early this week.

    Generally liyama aren't the best for out of the box settings so might require a fair bit of calibrating.

    Be great if tftcentral or pcmonitorsinfo gets this to review to give us proper info on things like response time etc.

    I thought the colours out the box were great but perhaps only because my previous monitor's were poor. Either way I felt no desire to tweak any settings. Best wait for professional review I think.

    Good site for calibrating things like brightness, contrast and gamma

    http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/

    Wouldn't bother with RGB values as you need proper calibrator hardware for this.
