Default 30" Yamakasi LEONIDAS 2560x1600!!!

Woh woh woh!!! I didn't know they even made this... Just noticed this from seller 'green-sum' on Ebay.

This looks like a real winner. Anyone used or seen one of these in person? I'm dehydrated from drooling all day.

I've heard from a few people who got these and really like it. Personally I'd keep the $200-$300 and stick with the 27in 1440.

I just noticed that you can get the Yamakasi Sparta, which uses the same screen for $519 shipped.

About $100 more than a 27"... Tempting...

Because it's only 1080. I'm tired of obsolete resolutions. I play BF3 on a 27" 1440 and when I switch to 1080, I am utterly unimpressed now. I've been spoiled unfortunately.

That may be the worst resolution I've ever seen.

Good luck with games since you'll likely have to input custom resolution files for some.

I didn't think about this....

Yeah.... I refuse to buy any 1080p panel larger than 22". I had a "discussion" with a FS associate WRT wanting a res higher than 1080p and explained to him that if I wanted 1080p I'd hook it up to my tv..... :)

Its amazing how many people I have to explain this to. Somehow people just assume 'bigger inches' means 'better quality' as well. Yet they know that 'retina display' means good? Sheep.

I would avoid anything with a random resolution (stick with the standards)

Agree, but I don't have any issue with 24" 1080p. Above that size the resolution should go up for gaming (IMO).
