I'd hold off on removing AG just yet, there are 2 reasons why I can see if they stopped doing Glossy. Since they're A- monitors the only option I can see is that either 1) Scratching
or 2) Polarizer.

After I removed my AG and popped it back on I started to notice diagonal (very faint) lines going from top left to bottom right, mainly noticeable on white but still very faint so after a bit I don't really notice them until I'm looking.

That said either 1) When I put it back together one of the wires isn't connected all the way in or protected as earlier, or 2) The polarizer isn't on correctly, as I notice if I push the matte film against it, I can't see it. So this is definitely a concern. I'm working on finals though and having a bad time getting Snort-report to pick up new rules properly for one assignment, but after which I'll be taking mine apart again to verify the safety of the cables then attempt again, if all is good after that then there's no worry.

Does anyone have trouble using Color Calibration Profile (ICC) posted on the first page or your own along with f.lux? Can anyone confirm that both can work together or do I have to disable f.lux to get ICC profile working?

Thanks.

Is that the link?

Is it safer to go through Ebay rather then that other site I posted? I never bought an item off Ebay before.

Ok.

From this list, which one do you recommend?

Are these all different sellers? I'm confused.

They're all different.

go with this one.

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-2560x1440-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-/140934439651?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20d058e2e3&_uhb=1

btw. Are you looking for matte or tempered glass?
post #10067 of 25893
I forgot to mention that I want Matte (window by my computer desk) and I want to get a pixel perfect one. Yes, I know you can still get a dead pixel but if they are saying 0-1 pixels and minimal BLB, I rather pay the extra 10-20$ for it.

Sorry, should of mentioned that first.

Also, is the Qnix the best for the money? Should there be other ones to consider?

Hey LunaP

Thanks for the heads up, I think I'll hold off on taking the AG off thumb.gif

Doesn't the apple monitor use tempered glass too?

Qnix/Xstar are the same you can go with either, don't be fooled by pixel perfect, it's just an extra money gimmick

Pretty sure they don't have matte under though. Just saying.
