I'm not interested in opening up the monitor either as although that'll probably fix the flickering, it won't fix the stuck/dead pixels.
Although the monitor looks brilliant, I can't live with it. There are probably 200 dead pixels on the whole screen, maybe even more. I can count at least 50 in the bottom left hand corner of the screen.
You can easily see them on a black screen using this test: http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php

I ended up with an FSM 270-YG from eBay and have a flickering problem. You mention opening up the monitor as you could probably fix the flickering. Can you explain? If this is something I could possible do myself I'm up for it as I only have a couple dead pixels and this screen is amazing. REALLY don't want to go down the return path although I have contacted the seller to let him know if he has any suggestions. I may run to Fry's and get another dual-link DVI cable just to see.

Thanks!

ta_planet is saying its the VGA signal that is causing it. I did not buy one with a vga signal and just one with a DVI-D input.

I just went ahead and purchased one from eBay but I will try to get a replacement one from ta_planet just incase.

I'm stationed in Korea and I've been playing with the idea of buying them here and shipping them to people to avoid taxes and whatnot. I'll check with the guy I got my 27" Crossover from about how much the 30" models would cost. The 27" cost me about $375.

EDIT: Well there's a typhoon today and the roads status has been declared black so... yeah. I'll check when it stops drizzling.

Wouldn't you know it I have to work today when everybody else gets the day off.

That cost was direct from seller? I've heard they sell them in Korea for like $200, but its like $150 for shipping, and thats why the ebay prices are what they are..

I got it through a Korean who runs a small computer store on post. I'll ask around where I can pick them up myself. I'm guessing the guy marks them up quite a bit.

EDIT: I also thought I should mention that a friend of mine has ordered three of them. The only issue he had was a mismatched stand on one of the units. Being in Korea it was pretty easy to get it sent back to the manufacturer to get the right one sent out. Neither of us have had any dead pixels, backlight bleeding, etc across four monitors between us.

Am I correct in understanding that the monitors being sold on eBay at this time are now stuck at 60hz and only the older models could clock past 60hz?

Yes, your are correct that the current panels are all basically stuck at or very near 60hz... The good'ol overclocking PCB's that were included in the initial supply of these monitors are long gone. These should only be considered if you are looking for a very basic, 60hz IPS panel. Most are not perfect regarding backlight bleeding, and you may or may not get a dead or hot pixel here and there, and the build quality is generally a bit lacking, but.... Bang for the buck, hard to beat...

Just to be clear. Only a specific type of older model was capable of 120Hz, not all of them.
