Now I just have to chance my luck on the monitor lottery! rolleyes.gif

p.s. Thanks for taking the time to document your matte coating removal, could prove useful down the line, +REP for your troubles. thumb.gif

np and Ah! I need to create a more detailed version for step by step lol, it's quite easy to do but I know some may fear breaking something so I'll wanna add in more pics for this specific bezel. There's also another thread for removing the bezel and reattaching the back plate to it for ultra thinness which is INSANE if you see them in surround drool.gif

Games do look a lot better but BF4 feels sluggish compared to my 120hz tn. I guess I'll just have to get used to it. Shouldn't be a problem. Also, there is more noticeable input lag but it's not bad to my surprise.

The strangest thing is that some games like CS:GO are crashing. It brings my monitor to 680x480 or something and its just a black screen. Guacamelee also crashes on boot.

Received mine a couple of days ago:
One bad pixel, I am ok with that.
Overclocked to 120hz first try, no coil whine.
Set up some color profiles to test out from this thread, and adjusted my gamma and I love it.

I didn't get mine off Ebay, I paid 325 from amazon, recieved a glossy QNIX qxz2710

Mine arrived today! I am semi-happy with it. On the one hand, the colors are great, there are no dead pixels, and I think I hit the lottery on backlight bleed compared to some pictures I have seen.

However, I have two 60hz 1080 monitors I was planning to do surround with. This monitor doesn't play nice with surround! Obviously, it is capable of running at 60hz and 1080, which are the only stated requirements for surround, but it claims that the monitor doesn't run at the same refresh rate as the others. This is disappointing, but a possibility that I had considered. Someone told me it wouldn't work, I just didn't believe them, because I thought, a monitor is a monitor, as long as it goes high enough resolution. Not so much.

If anyone knows an adapter that can make this work let me know, I'd really appreciate it.

That said I'm pretty stoked on the monitor still, and the main reason I got it was for more working space and 1440 gaming instead of 1080 will still be nice, so I'm not TOO disappointed.

P.S. is there a form I have to fill out to be a part of your club, like there was for 780? I'm not seeing it. Do I just copy to sig?

The fact that it doesn't seem to have come up extensively before now (to my knowledge) has me wondering how bad the issue really is though.

Coming from 1080p TN panels, would this be really obvious do you think? Enough to pass up 780 ti's and go for two 290x's instead? thinking.gif I hate tricky decisions!

i'm prbably gonna have to sell the screen, even though i like it. i can't affrod to sell my 680, would lose more money on that than on the screen. if i was building a new machine and was set on this screen, i'd definately go for ATI.

had i known this fact, i wouldn't have bought the monitor to be honest.

I understand on the long term effects, I don't think any of us know yet. I run mine overclocked while gaming and when I'm done I just put it back to 60 for everything else.

I'm having the same problem and I'm curious about how common it is.

Anyone want to try this? Curious to see how common it is.
post #10310 of 25893
96hz seems to be perfect. I could try 110 or 100 but I think it works well. I think it's also smart to keep it only on for games. Since many of these panels can get strange artifacts, I dont want to risk it. It's almost too good. Colours, lighting, resolution, image quality overall is just insane.

There is more motion blur at 120hz on this PLS panel vs my TN native 120hz but even so... common it's not even fair. This blows it out of the water
