I needed to procrastinate some, so I disassembled mine and added some gaff tape and a few screws. It's still not 'perfect' but it did improve the white-light bleed somewhat, quite a lot in the top left.

I'm not sure what you did with the screws that might have damaged it, short of using some largish sheet metal screws and torquing them crazy hard -- I wonder if something else happened? Perhaps one of the connectors isn't fully seated or one of the wires damaged? or it was coincidence?

FAQs:
- It seems to be the cheapest "perfect pixel" option (mine was $310).
- Universal voltage input; will take anything from 110-240V.
- The manufacturer is actually "Orion Telecom" and the model is the "Potalion 2710QW".
- Only one model has surfaced so far - the DVI-only input with no scaler hardware and no speakers.
- There is a set of VESA mounting holes on the back of the monitor - no need to disassemble anything to get to them.
- The stand is pretty flimsy, but works if you have a sturdy desk. It'll tilt forwards and backwards, but be gentle as it could snap easily.
- It comes with a dual link DVI cable, and they work fine with my GTX 670.
- Nobody has yet tried to overclock them.
- Backlight bleed has ranged from non-existent to significant; your mileage may vary.
- There is no OSD. Most of the buttons on the side do nothing; only power and brightness up/down work.
- The monitor comes with a FOUR year warranty in South Korea, so that's a small reassurance.
Will update this post as more information comes in.

Hello

After seeing this thread, I bought a Potalion from BCC. Just wondering, what should I really be expecting? Is it really the same $1,200 Apple monitor (without the fancy stuff)?

Thanks

How many people bought a square trade warranty to go with their monitor?

Yes. Only deal breaker is, high probability of bleed on the edges of the screen. in some cases, half of your screen won't be as bright as the other half (but this case is rare). Great deal for this resolution and size. Its quite a jump from the normall monitors. Same screen as Apple Cinema I believe. Great color and picture. It looks as good as most high end HDTVs

Has anyone managed to OC past 70hz with these? I'm currently sitting at 67hz without issue for the most part.

Sounds like a bloody good deal! Is there any way to fix the light bleeding? But still... what a deal!

Yeah with PROPER SCREWS (yes use the exact screws to screw in un filled slots that should have been filled to bring the screen closer to backlight. I don't know why they'd skimp on that. ) I can't stress the EXACT SCREWS part again because, different screw will damage your screen like it did mine. Also taping helps


I got a replacement today. This man BCC ships fast. shipped on Wednesday, got it Friday. Better than last one. almost perfect back ligh. slight bleed on either bottom corners.

You don't know what you are missing

Just got my replacement the other day from BCC - First one had one red stuck pixel but really great, uniform backlighting. This one's bleed is abysmal and there is still either a stuck pixel or a spec of dust behind the screen. He assured me he'd check thoroughly...not throughout enough I suppose. He's currently offering me a partial refund or a return and full refund. He's stated he's already spent over $300 USD shipping the monitor for me (I'm not sure I buy that).....but that's his fault. When I pay for 'pixel perfect'...i'm expecting you to spend 5 minutes to look for dead or stuck pixels before shipping - if you fee that you are willing to take a gamble by glancing over it, then that's the risk you should assume - you shouldn't assume I'd be happy not getting what I paid for. I'm going to see what kind of partial refund he gives. If it's substantial, perhaps I'll keep it. If not - does anyone know any other, solid re-salers that you would advise I go to for a Korean IPS monitor? At this point I'm thinking of going with Microcenter's EQD - it's more money, but at least I can quickly resolve any issue.

I'm not missing out on anything! Got mine today; unbelievable.

Unbelievable.

It's the most amazing picture i've ever seen; and NO light-bleed at all!

2 or 3 dead pixels, doesn't bother me though!

thumb.gif Welcome to the club. Yeah after having this thing for 2 weeks now, I am still gaping over how sharp and crisp the image is. AND NO ANNOYING AG COATING

My roomates were like, Yeah thats downright the best monitor they have ever seen.
Lol you should try watching some Blu Rays. Your eyes will bleed. I'm glad you went for it.

How did you find 3 dead pixels O.o ? I would think it impossible to find on such a pixel dense screen

I bought this stand http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=5970&seq=1&format=2
and it has worked out beautifully. I adjusted it just to the point where I can rotate it for portrait mode and still have good height for landscape. Potrait HELPS for reading massive amounts of text or web-browsing
