Is there a way to stop the creaking of moving this display? I put it on a monitor arm and everytime I move it, it sounds like Old Mrs. Hubbard's Cupboard

I'm from South Africa and wanting to buy one of these beasts of a screen,

I'm just worried whether I should go PixelPerfect or not, The exchange rate is a bit of a killer as it is for me between non perfect vs perfect.

Is it worth the extra? I'm rather finicky when it comes to dead pixels and spot them rather easily on screens so I'm rather scared of getting a monitor that does has compared to say the piece of mind I get with a pixel perfect, I see some people say the PixelPerfect is just a marketing term more than anything?

just wondering, what's the average lifespan of these monitors if anyone knows? i know these haven't been released that long, but i saw some posts mentioning ~1 yr. i hope that's a small percentage outlier group of owners and not an expected lifespan for owners in general

That was 1st gen models which are no longer being made, we're on 3rd gen now thumb.gif so the burn outs don't really occur anymore on the PCB

Qnix QX2710 @ 96Hz, 6500k white point, 120cdm, 2.2 gamma and 11 clicks brightness from the minimum. Matte monitor. The room lightning is quite dim.

Incredible, I must have gone through 7 profiles when I first setup the monitor and chose the one that had the least "warmth" and honestly I loved it but then I loaded yours up tonight and kept going back and forth between it and the one I had been using and the whites using your profile are legit white. Impressive sir and thank you! I love it! +rep!!! thumb.gif

I got mine, no dead pixels, no bleeding, plus they shipped it overnight for free

Although I'm not a fan of the blue led flashing when it's off or sleeping

Overclocked to 96Hz with ease. Can't do anything above that. Satisfied. thumb.gif

I'm trying not to get to hung up on mine. I personally think mine is tempered glass and glossy but who really knows. It looks better to me than matte anyway and that's all that matters, i mean, if you hadn't been reading this thread you would think it's glossy wouldn't you? It's not like you can tell is my point.
I'm back baby!!!

Or keep whichever is working, remove the matte if there is any and if polarizer is fine, swap it out w/ mine and send mine back.
That was 1st gen models which are no longer being made, we're on 3rd gen now thumb.gif so the burn outs don't really occur anymore on the PCB

Seriously? Thats sick. I didnt know they're updated.

It's weird. I feel like I stole or committed a crime with this monitor. How can I have this 1440p crazy display while paying lower then the 27" 1080p tn panel i bought a few weeks ago? lol idk this is NUTS
