Hello!

I just got a U2711, that I´m really happy with, except one little thing!
When I got to Nvidia Control Panel and choose 1920x1080, the monitor detects it as 1920x1200 and gives the screen black borders on top and bottom. Also, inside Menu->Display Settings->Display Info on the monitor, it says 1920x1200 when in windows I choose 1920x1080.

Some things I´ve noticed are; when I use the Xbox 360, the monitor correctly recognizes the resolution as proper 1920x1080 and theres no problems.
Also, when in windows, if I choose 1920x1080 50hz the monitor get the signal as 1080p. Its only 1920x1080 59/60hz that does this.

Anyone here with a U2711, can you please try setting your monitor to 1920x1080 in Windows and see if the monitor gets it as 1920x1080 in "Display Info"

I´m on the brink of sending this back...but alot of users gets this, so maybe its a "feature"?

Thanks in advance!

The reason for this is that screen is a 16:10 screen ratio so you cannot fill the screen with 1920x1080 which is a 16:9 ratio.. The comon 16:10 ratios are

WXGA 1280×800 13–15 in (33–38 cm)
WXGA+ 1440×900 13–19 in (33–48 cm)
WSXGA+ 1680×1050 15–22 in (38–56 cm)
WUXGA 1920×1200 17–28 in (43–71 cm)
WQXGA 2560×1600 30 in (76 cm)

This is the reason for the bars when you force the 1080p res. Not much you can do about that.

Also why are you running at 1080p in Windows this is a 2560 x 1440 monitor it will look best at native res.

I agree with Thently. Why are trying to run a 2560X1440 monitor at 1920X1080 all the time? If you were just going to do that, You could easily saved $600 and just got a 32" TV.

2560x1440 is 16:9, and 2560x1600 is 16:10.
In some games I need 1920x1080 because I hit the vRAM-wall...
Also, just wanna know if my monitor is defect or not.
