A screenshot doesn't show how your display looks - a photo of your display would be better - but even that will not show us exactly what you can see.

I got mine yesterday. It looks amazing but it has 1 stuck pixel and something that looks unlike a stuck/dead pixel. It's like a blue splotch. It covers more than one pixel and it can't be wiped off. Anyone have any idea what it might be:

Just ordered my "Perfect Pixel" QNIX Matte 27" from Red-Cap on Ebay. When it arrives, assuming everything is on the up-and-up, I'll start an RMA on my Monoprice CrystalPro, which doesn't go past 65Hz. I hope return shipping won't be too much on that, and considering it's only going a few counties over, it shouldn't be. The CrystalPro was about $360 shipped with tax (open box), so my savings will be $(50 - ReturnShip).

For the people who have good OC results:
Can you tell the difference between 96Hz and 110Hz, and what about from 110 to 120+?
Have you gamed for 3+ hours nonstop with the monitor OC'd without any issues?

wrigleyvillain: What up bro, pls check PM.

I'll let you know Monday evening wink.gif as far as 96hz vs. higher hopefully! I have been gaming at 96hz no problems though for many hours on my old reliable backup 9600 GSO 384mb card eek.gif .

I gamed for an hour or two at 130hz before I sent my 680 lightning in for RMA. I've been running the monitor exclusively at 96hz on my 560ti since then (maybe 2 weeks?). No issues.

I'll see how high I can push it once I get my 680L back, but I'll probably settle on 120hz for the long haul unless I can achieve 144 without issues.

I can't really tell you the difference between 96 and or 120 since I didn't have enough time to play with the more powerful card, but I personally wouldn't bother with 110 unless you never watch 24fps content (pretty much any movie) on the screen.

I can however tell you that 96 is way nicer than 60. Whenever a game starts dropping into the 60-70fps range, it starts feeling like 30-40 used to on my 60hz. It actually shocked me, because I thought certainly my fps must be lower to look so stutters, but I keep checking and it's consistently in the 70s range whenever it starts to feel choppy.

Even at the full vsynced 96 in games where I can achieve that, I can still notice some jerkiness in fast moving scenes, but I suspect that will be a persisting issue until we get 500hz+ screens. 120 should offer some improvement over 96 though. Then again, there is a whole sect of users out there who swear 30 is perfectly smooth and anything more is invisible, so maybe I'm just crazy. (naw, who am I kidding, we all know they're the crazy ones)

Has anyone else bought one as a 0-2 dead pixel promotion? How did they turn out?

I might get another of these using the same promotion, but I'm afraid of running into stuck pixels again.

Interesting. So movies don't look right if you don't run at a multiple of 24Hz?
post #1088 of 25893
I went straight to 120 hz no problem. I do wish I had gone with matt over glossy, them reflections! But great monitor noetheless. No dead/stuck pixels smile.gif

I went straight to 120 hz no problem. Only wish I had gone with matt over glossy, them reflections man! But overall awesome, no dead pixels. Only issue, not completley flush in bottom right corner.

Yeah you get uneven frame times, frame skips, or tearing depending on how the video is encoded / played back.
