How is your stand? Is it wobbly?

Well to me the stand is fine, although I bought a wall mount prior to receiving the monitor so either way its gonna be hung. I tried playing DAO on it since the game tends to be dark and honestly I don't notice the bleed at all while playing, its only apparent when you watch movies on it which I don't do much anyway. I used both matte and glossy screens before and holy crap this IPS blows everything out of the water.

Another thing, coming from a triple 22 inch eyefinity setup, I prefer this solution greatly. No more annoying bezels even after debezelment, and my card doesn't idle at 66 degrees anymore haha. Guess if I ever get 2 more and do portrait eyefinity with these warlocks then I will have to figure out the bleed problem.........................and WC the cards or something because of the almost 11 million pixels the system would be pushing.

Has anyone had any significant problems with the power bricks, looks pretty cheap, haven't tested it for any voltage irregularities yet. I got my monitor from BC although I would assume all the sellers had the same brick.

Thx in advance guys

Pics?

I received mine late friday afternoon (3 days ago), let's see if you OCers notice my issue.

I actually wasn't looking for it, but the problem became apparent after I had videos going side by side, originally I thought it was handbrake causing the video brightness to change, then I finally noticed the real issue.

On top of that there are 3 clusters of these across the screen, does pixel perfect cover these? or are these considered stuck pixels and not dead, hence not covered? the slight pixel defects don't bother me, but the first issue definitely conflict with these I work on.

The image is abit dark but its apparent that the bleeding is evident. To the guy ontop........is it me or is the right side of your screen a crapton lighter than the right.

Their definition of a dead pixel is a completely black pixel, a white or bright pixel is not according to them dead (think I read that somewhere through their postings), stuck pixels are not covered either I believe as they with time get unstuck unless stated otherwise.

As to my screen, the bleed is there but honestly when you play games your not staring at a completely black screen, even when I started up ABAQUS, CAD, ProE, or Solidworks the bleed doesn't seem apparent. Has anyone had similar bleed, I read that some people with Shimian and Catleaps got partial refunds because of this issue, has anyone had similar luck with these models.

I just opened mine up and put a few screws to minimize my backlight bleed.
I am going to do a few other spots with screws very soon to reduce it even more.

From what I read there are 12 screw holes total, did you tighten all of them? Could you post before/after pics if those are available, I don't want to torque the screws too much and make a electrical contact and mess the display up like some others have.

Right on! the left side of my screen is noticeably darker than the right. Let me contact him and see what he saids.
The bleed on your monitor isn't that bad, I have bleed that runs along the bottom also, in a bbq grill pattern, not that noticeable though.

Damn, tough luck, still a decent purchase when considering price. Enjoy that high resolution! If I was going Korean this is the one I was considering most.

Well that picture was taken at about 50 percent brightness, I might rip it apart and add screws, although the posts about people messing up their panels make me bit hesitant. For gaming these monitors rock.......................been playing DAO for the last few hours, and this vs eyefinity wins by a mile. No UI issues, screen tearing and all of the environment loads fine unlike in eyefinity when random things wouldn't load. D3 on eyefinity was hilarious, you saw the engines limits and the horrible game design at its best.

Well if your lighting is uneven like that, that would be considered a manufacturing defect wouldn't it, since its not at the edges.

I can next time I open mine, I just found small screws and put them into the holes where there were no screws and where I had bad bleed. I didn't tighten em a ton.
