    Anyone using the HYUNDAI L90D+ LCD ?

    I am thinking of getting one for my rig so I need opinions.

    Anyone have one? What are your thoughts?

    Only problem I need to figure out is that Toms says it is a 16.2 million color unit and NewEgg says it's a 16.7 million color unit. I would prefer 16.7 if that is the actual color.

    Any help is appreciated!

    16.7 million colours is the standard (and has been for over a decade). I'd hope it's a typo

    Not so on LCD panels unfortunately.... All the TN panels (Twisted Neumatic) are only capable of 6 bit color (260k) which dithered is 16.2 million.

    This is not really an issue with games, but image work suffers a little due to color being a shade off. This causes a slight "movement" effect of the pixels that can be a pain sometimes as well.

    16.7 million is the way to go, but most panels of the 16.7 color build are very expensive.

    Well its really not too bad if the LCD is of good quality.
    Samsung 172x I have, has actually better colors then the 24 bit Iiyama I had before. But then again its still more expensive then most 19" LCDs.
    Its really down to implementation of the technology.
    I have seen some cheapo 16.2 monitors with really washed out colors, so I guess best thing to do is to check it out yourself.
    Mind you L is the cheap version of Hyundai, all I know of Hyundai is Q17+ was a very good monitor and winner of many test around the net. THG was actually using it as a benchmark standard for some time.

    My thinking follows yours F_A_L_C_O_N, I think that if it is built well, it will look good. Noone around here has the Hyundai so I can't see one. Going to have to trust NewEgg on this one....

    Here is a good review site for that monitor! It's rated pretty good, and doesn't seem to be a low END model - unless you rate it against one thats like $500+
    I'm a gamer, and I think thats the one I'm going to get based on the review and price!

    I have one. It's about eight months old, give or take, and I'm pretty pleased with it. I don't do any kind of precise photographic stuff with it, so the dithered color isn't an issue for me.

    It's bright and sharp, that's for sure. The only person that's seen it and didn't particularly care for it is my son. He runs a 1600x1200 desktop, but the native resolution on the L90D+ is 1280x1024, so 1600x1200 doesn't look all that good. That's why he has a 21" screen

    I'm not crazy about Newegg's dead pixel policy. 8 seems like a lot.

    It's a matter of perspective I guess. I'm with you, I think it's tiny. To him, my 1280x1024 is huge

    Did yours come with any dead pixels? 8 is a LOT!

    No, none at all, but Newegg's policy is that up to 8 is not considered a defect.

    I didn't buy mine from Newegg, I was just commenting on their "**Dead Pixels Policy: Replacement or Refund for 8 or more dead pixels only" since the OP seems to be considering them.
