I think the most striking impression I've had so far in coming from a 1920x1200 24" display is probably the increased pixel density. In raw numbers, a 24" 1920x1200 LCD has a DPI of 94.3 and a 27" 2560x1440 LCD has a DPI of 108.8. It's 15% more dense in each dimension which leads to about 33% more pixel density overall. Text definitely looks sharper. That is almost certainly also partially due to the lack of an AG coating.

downside; significant back light bleed around the corners. Can this monitor be retured for a better back light. Its visible only in dark backgrounds

Open it up put in screws on side where they are missing by the problem areas, bam problem reduced or solved.

Yes i added 3 screws to mine so far works awesome!

You mean they don't put enough screws and so the screen is not properly secured and therefore the back light is uneven/bleeds? What kind of screws will I need and doesn't that void warranty?

I really must say I'm pleased with the 2710QW so far. I ordered three of the perfect ones from BCC for $330 each. Each one works fine and they appear to have no defects that I can discern.

Notes:
Backlight bleed is minimal--no worse than I've seen on premium displays in the past. The Viewsonic VP2030b I have for instance is less uniform than these are, and that was a $550 monitor when it was new.

Despite being glossy panels, reflections aren't really an issue that I've noticed so far. So long as they are on, their light output completely drowns out any reflections. When off entirely, reflections can be seen. Overall I'd say it's not distracting. It's worth noting that I don't run any lights in my room and the curtains are drawn, but I don't have blackout curtains or anything. There is definitely ambient light, but it's not like I operate under a street light.

The buttons are inconveniently placed for multi-monitor users. Being that they're behind the bezel, recessed in slightly from the right side, it's hard to access the power button on any monitor that has another to the right of itself. I may invest in another power strip that I just kill the power to when I want to shut them off for the night.

The stands feel fragile. Everyone always says the stands are bad. They're bad. You will definitely want to replace them as the slightest bump to your table will leave you with a bobbing monitor. If your table sucks like mine and isn't reliably flat, you may end up with a precariously leaning monitor as well. You should consider the stands as part of the base cost because ultimately it probably will be.

Display output is very good. The image quality is perceptibly higher than that which I had experienced on any of my previous monitors (Dell UltraSharps: 2007FP, 2408WFP, U2410). I attribute this partially to there being no AG coating and partially to the 33% higher pixel density over the primary screens I've been using before (24" @ 1920x1200).

Overall satisfaction: Quite high. These things seem to work well, definitely look good, and aren't currently burning my house down. While a joke, that last point is something I'm always a bit scared of with cheap electronics. Fortunately, the power bricks included with these units are significantly over-sized 24 VDC / 5 A (120 W) units.

Can you take pictures of your monitors with dark screens. I want to compare the back light bleed/glow. Mine has some and I'm worried if this is typical or if its my ****ty luck.

I do looove the display, my U221H looks soo dull with the AG coating now compared to having the glossy Potalion.

No LCD is perfect with regard to backlight bleed. I can take a picture if you want, but I'm not sure how much it will tell you since the magnitude the image will show will be determined by the camera exposure and the monitor you view it on.

It will be helpful. Take it with the room being dark with a black screen. It will help me notice the places/patterns of light bleed.

And you can tell if its been exaggerated by the cam as well.
