So now I face the decision to either switch back to my Dell u2913wm (and lose the vertical res, which i have come to appreciate + gain some input lag - i'm going to test it today when home from work, but i think it's pretty bad on the dell, at least it the game "hard reset"), switch gpu to amd (and lose shadowplay), play in windowed fullscreen (if permitted by the application) and put up with screen tearing, or finally just put up with ****ty colors in games. And you wouldn't believe how crappy for example planetside2 looks without calibrated colors :-(. Any advice guyze?

also, the plastic frame housing has a really big gap in the middle on the lower side. do i have to disassemble to fix this? (or is it fixable only by disassembly and reassembly at all?)
Happens with AMD too. It's a DirectX11 game issue where the gamma ramp is reset by a fullscreen game. Use CPKeeper to force profiles on in fullscreen games. It was just asked a page or two ago.

Cpk doesn't work, art last not with planetside 2....:-(

Try MCW or Color Clutch.

Also try Borderless Windowed mode.

MCW doesn't work either, haven't tried color clutch. windowed fullscreen works, but it introduces screen tearing.

edit: color clutch is too much effort, i'm not willing to create a batch file for each and every game i play. also, it can be detected as cheat, because of the DLL injection.

Then you have actual glossy. If there is a piece of glass, you have the tempered glass. If you can press on the screen like you would to unstick a pixel, you have glossy or matte depending on what it looks like obviously.

Hello, this is Green-Sum, the eBay seller.

Actually, tempered glass version is also glossy version as it is 'glossy'. The newest LG AH-IPS panel, which LG calls it as glossy, is a panel itself(people usually calls it 'glossy') + anti-glare coating(at this point, a matte panel) + tempered glass (glossy panel again). QNIX's panel is also like that. Hope you understand it.

Hope the answer above helps you. Please let us know if you have any questions.
Thank you.

Best regards,
Green-Sum

Just wanted to thank everyone that contributed to this thread. Made a decision to order the x-star from dreamseller. Ordered on 11/27 and was delivered on 12/2. Best 279$ I've ever spent! Also got lucky and received one with no dead/stuck pixels.

I get no distortion even if I press it semi-hard, so just a cover on the screen?

Right. If it's firm, it's glass. If it is soft and you can distort it, it's either matte or glossy without the glass. To a lot of people, it won't matter much either way. I did let green-sum know that the panels are NOT glossy if they just stick a piece of glass on them. That's not correct and he needs to correct the listing -- in my mind I did not get the product I ordered.

Now, does it look bad? No, not to me.

this is pretty messed up and should be probably mentioned in the OP.

i do not recommend to buy these korean monitors if you have an nvidia card, unless you don't care about the colors in fullscreen applications.

nvidia drivers have no ability to maintain ICC profiles in fullscreen applications and there are only partially working workarounds, if that.

pretty disappointing to me. not the fault of the monitor itself per se, but i wish i knew about this earlier nevertheless.
