It's also insane that someone would need to buy multiple Tempered Glass monitors, removing the glass from each monitor and then ship them back until you find one with a legit Glossy panel. Simply not worth the time and money.

I don't think he's aware he just has no clue what he has, also who would order a ton of monitors just to remove and send back? lol

But, this is what you would expect, the old saying goes, you get what you pay for, especially if your buying A- panels from another country.

Yeah but some people HAVE received w/ gloss underneath the issue is its hit or miss so we're still looking, I'm probably just going to order from amazon.

Reading through the thread I think he believes it's glossy and was asking the community for help in determining if it was glossy. Maybe the manufacturer is using thinner matte coating? Or a different type of matte coating? Glossy under glass contradicts what all the vendors are saying...

Well just read below here he reposted the pics, should be proof enough, you're referring to someone asking, in which he verified, then there's stige who also removed his and verified.

You got a bad monitor then, gloss will always be sharper than matte w/o OSD settings to increase it.

But yes, I would definitely go as far as to say my panel is Glossy even after removing the Tempered Glass, the reflection is just way too clear and good to be any sort of matte at all.
Like real matte? No reflection to speak of whatsoever?



Ah see here he is tongue.gif and yeah don't let anyone tell you different or call you out that's 100% Gloss.

I for one, am getting a lot of image retention at 96hz.

I'm using CRU with the automated lcd timings though.

just done the test and yes it saved the 120hz no problem.....i keep it at 96hz as it seems to be what most people have theirs at and tbh i cant tell any difference between 96hz and 120hz..



qnix120hz111_zps978c4852.jpg

As you can see in the box it has saved 60hz/96hz/and 120hz. smile.gif

The only problem is backlight bleed which can be solved with the tape mod.....but tbh i think if they haven't got any dead pixels then they will have bleed as these panels are all rejects of some sort (which is why they are so cheap) and something is the matter with all of them as stated by a few people on this forum.....but with bleed at least its fixable but sadly with my tempered glass the 14 dead pixels werent.
If you want a monitor that has no dead pixels and light bleed etc you will have to pay £900 for something like an apple thunderbolt. frown.gif

@ Luna p....i think your wrong about the glossy being sharper than matte ...glossy coating is different to matte coating and you lose some sharpness with glossy coated panels..... glossy brings out colour vibrancy and in my opinion looks so much better than matte but this is just my opinion and taste. smile.gif

Purchased a 30" monitor from ebay from a korean seller recently and it has been caught in customs. The charge is for £75. Considering the monitor cost £340, it feels quite steep.

My question is, if I decline to pay for this, will the item simply return back to the seller, or am I now obliged to pay either way?

What is the action to take in this case? Any recommendations would be most welcome smile.gif

I'm almost curious if CRU settings differ from the driver settings, as I'm not having issues with any of my 3 though I'm using my Graphics control panel vs CRU which I couldn't get to work anyways so removed.



For those of you getting image retention can you post if you're using CRU or your Graphics Driver ? ( i.e. CCC or Nvidia CC) Would love to get some statistics.

Nope, Matte is Gloss w/ the coating over it, remove the coating and poof back to gloss as it originally was lol. You obviously have to make a small sacrifice somewhere for covering up a screen with another film, this is all in for those that are in areas where they NEED the anti glare. Been verified numerous times by many removing. My first one I ordered as gloss was matte I removed the film, it's much sharper and brighter. I posted pics, just as the STige did w/ the glass next to his screen.


Here's mine w/ half the matte on the right and no matte on the left.


AWW YEEE look @ dat sharpness thumb.gif

15 dead pixels is a lot.Are you sure this is not enough reason for a return?
post #10748 of 25935
You might be correct but i didnt notice such a big difference between the tempered glass panel and glossy panel.....it was very slight.....not like night and day on your photo....then again a camera lens is so much better than the naked eye....take light bleed for instance.....hardly noticeable to the naked eye but take a photo and all is revealed.

So your saying a glossy panel has no coating?....it is just the panel?.....my other samsung sa27950d 120hz 3d monitor has a gloss coating, you can see the ripples when its switched off and i also read it was coated?.....so i presumed these were the same being from Samsung?

I returned it and got the glossy panel as i heard a lot of the glass panels had dust in them (which can look like dead pixels) i had 14 dead pixels but 7 of them were clumped together in one blob which looked horrendous....... they refunded me after i returned it no problem.
