They are legitimate. I ordered one from them but ended up returning it and I paid nothing to return and got all my money back.

I see 96hz in both windows resolution settings and the nvidia control panel, but not games.

Try to update your monitor drivers with this inf file. That's created especially for your (and my) problem where games wouldn't recognize the overclocked refresh rates when played in full screen. Worked for me.

Now that I remember, I'd like to ask if anyone one know what those two white bright(ish) pixels on my screen are. First I thought they are dead pixels, but they can't be seen on black background and it's very hard to see them on blue or any other dark color. On white they are quite visible though and same on green and red (though, not so visible as on white). I thought that white pixels on this panels are the dead ones and black ones are the ones that are stuck but what the hell are this two pixels I have here. They can't be dead pixels or can they? Shouldn't they be visible on black background too then (and even be easiest to notice on dark background).

I just setup my xstar and it has a bit of a gap between the bezel and panel at the bottom of the monitor. Is that normal?

Which version did you buy? If Tempered glass then there's an issue, if not then one of the paddings inside isn't supporting it or rubbed off possibly. Do you have a screenshot of it?

This all the way, you're protected by Ebay + paypal in this case, while other sides its at the discretion of the seller if they'll accept it back if it contains flaws, or is broken.

I made a thread a few pages back about my experience on this. I got a bill from FedEx a week after my Xstar arrived and it was for $25. I spoke with another member here named Yume and he gave me great information to get this corrected. Anyway I contacted the main office in Alaska and talked with the senior manager. It seems they have the classification wrong on these monitors and we are getting charged wrong from FedEx. After lengthy discussions and many phone calls, my issue was resolved and she took care of my bill. I told her there will be a lot of these going through here and asked what can be done about this. She has now reclassified these monitors from Korea and anyone else from Wednesday on should not get a bill and the monitors will fall under the new classification. thumbsupsmiley.png Cheers guys. If anyone still gets a bill message me and I can help you get it resolved. The time frame is limited so the faster you try to get your bill taken care of the better.

I have the matte version. It doesn't seem to be affecting the picture or causing backlight bleed, which the monitor only has a tiny amount of in a corner.
It comes out about 7mm in the bottom middle of the screen.

Sorry about the bad picture
