    Not Quite 120hz: The LG 27EA83-D

    In summary:

    - WQHD (2560x1440) Resolution
    - IPS
    - 10 bit color, 100% sRGB
    - HDMI, DVI-D, DisplayPort
    - Portrait Mode

    In addition, the review mentions an overlock to 99Hz on DVI-D and 98Hz on DisplayPort. Other than not quite hitting 120hz, seems to be a terrific monitor.

    Extremely pricey though.

    Price is still too high but it looks like a bloody nice monitor, good styling and the stand looks great.
    I'm also guessing that it could probably go past 99hz with manual timings?

    You can't really count the prices now as a real price. They did this with every single catleap about 7 months ago last time there was a shortage. They didn't want to take the listings off ebay, but rose the price to a point they know is ridiculous.

    No more Shadman Green Sum went nuts he now asking $1,449.90 for a 120HZ But if you look at the ones he sold $949.90.

    People Don't buy these monitors off Ebay it only makes it harder for hyper to keep the price down for YOU<

    ~100Hz, 10-bit colors, USB 3.0, multiple inputs. Not bad at all. I'd prefer it over the Catleap if I didn't already had one.

    Do you think the 100Hz limit he is reaching could be because he is using SLi with the two GTX670 FTWs? This monitor looks amazing and from the review I think I want one, but I don't like the 100Hz limit he was hitting and I also want to find out what Hyper has brewing for us. $1000 is also a bit steep.

    If he is running 100Hz at 10bit colors, that would mean he is using roughly the same bandwidth needed for 125Hz 8bit colors.
