I doubt it. Mine showed like it landed in Kentucky first. But I realized it was just an anticipation. As it came in through Anchorage. I think it eventually did hit Kentucky. The tracking seemed really weird though. Reads funky

12/5 at around midnight PST. So it was shipped within 24 hours. If it gets here Monday that's really fast and only the weekend messed up the speed. But seeing how it went back to Korea, to AK and then back to KY and now is in Oakland,CA tonight that's even more impressive. Could the package really go back and forth twice before getting to CA though?

Yup, tempered glass it was, which is now a bit shattered tongue.gif
Prying it off = Not a gut plan! But with razor it came off real easy and quick.

But the weird thing to me is, it still looks like glossy even without the glass!

A few (crappy) pictures:

Just glued to the panel itself


This is what you get when you just try to pry it off with a screwdriver lol


Proper way to do it


Still looks like Glossy to me?


Just some glass on there, no visible damage whatsoever to the monitor itself


The glass


Working just fine

My XL2420T looked nothing like this and it was matte, got like zero reflection on it but this sure looks very glossy compared to how the XL2420T was atleast.
If this is their definition of Matte then what is that on the XL2420T lol

Yeah the matte in Qnix isn't much of a matte. Got quite a bit of reflection myself too.

Hello there,

couple of days ago I received my Qnix2710 from hulustar - very much like it, zero dead pixels but some BLB if I'm correct. Read something, and some people say it's normal to have these bright corners at PLS/IPS panels, so I'm curious if I could fix this with the tape mod, or if it's really just how the monitor "is".. would be thankful for some advice.

With the tapemod, I think I'll feel kind of..uncomfortable removing the metal frame, would it be enough to simply remove the black bezel and apply some tape where the BLB exists? I couldnt really find any video/how-to on how to safely/correctly remove the metal frame yet.

Thanks for your help.


This is how it looks, black screen, but of course because of my phone's camera, it looks way more bright than it actually is.


Lowered the brightness on the phone, this is more how it looks like in reality (to me):



I can feel that the black bezel is sitting really tight at the display/panel where the brightness occurs, is this because the metal frame is a bit bent? (This is just what I assume by reading this thread) - Is this fixable?

That's awesome! No scratches on the bezel from the razor or anything?
If you had to say, is it more glossy without the glass, or pretty much the same?

That shot where its clean looks like a glossy panel to me. But pics are deceiving.

The tapemod will not help a single bit against your backlight problem. Because I'm pretty sure all PLS panels have this. Well atleast my panel has this, and the tapemod did not help one bit.
I think it's just an inherent flaw of this panel. But hey, I honestly still love the blacks. I have a desklight which makes it pretty much impossible for me to ever see... Again, if You/I would take the same photograph of any tn panel, the screen would be a lot brighter.

I took apart the entire monitor, and there are no tight spots/pressure points. Maybe there are pressure points inside the panel, but I'm not opening that one up:o
Actually, all photographs that show any bleed, show the highest amount of bleed at the right side. Is this where the LEDs are located? I'm pretty sure it's caused by the way this panel was designed.
