You should play dumb at your house and purchase a new monitor therefore not penalizing Microcenter for your mistake. B&M stores have enough issues staying open... Microcenter offers some hellified deals and breaking products by modification and then returning saying "uhhh, it was like that" is shady and doesn't help keep them open.

You maybe able to buy a polarizer sheet and cut it up to fit the missing areas...

I'm thinking I'll just replace the whole polarizer while getting rid of the AG coating in the process, but I can't find one :\

There are places that "fix" LCD panels. I think it'll cost a few hundred dollars.

Was anyone able to get a fairly accurate color profile on the matte version monitor for the OSD settings? Closest I can get is this:

Eco: Standard
DCR: Off
Brightness: 77
Contrast: 56
Red: 93
Green: 89
Blue: 90

Nvidia Control Panel settings:

Digital Vibrance: 40%

I don't personally have a colorimeter, but I know I'm definitely not colorblind in any way so what I see should be a fairly accurate representation with those settings of what I'm currently using. If anyone else wants to try those out and let me know, it would be appreciated. Or if you have the matte version and a colorimeter, mind posting what your settings are.

On the fence about buying two of these to replace my Asus 27 inch monitors which have horrible viewing angles. I'm worried about the reported input lag though and the whole AG vs Glossy ordeal. I'm pretty sure I'd have to go with the AG since my monitors are right next to windows. I don't do any competitive gaming where input lag would matter except for SSFIV which is horrible either way on PC. Is the lag that bad? How is screen tearing on these?

Also is there any other things I should look out for? I have 1 open box and 1 new one reserved for me at MC. Thanks, thumb.gif

My AG version works very well. These panels are very bright by default. Viewing angle is great since it is an IPS monitor. I use the display port connection on mine. There isn't any noticible lag to me and i play a couple different FPS games.

Screen tearing is a result of your framerate exceeding the refresh rate of your monitor. If you run into issues just enable vsync through the game or use your graphics card control panel to enable/disable.

I had the tech department test my monitor for stuck or dead pixels before I purchased. They used different color solid back grounds and we combed the entire screen.

I am not a fan of open box products but by all means let MC test it for you and if you are satisfied that is all that maters.

Not if it's using U2711 panels.
