Oh boy am i not sorry i bought this thing! Thing came very securely packaged and cushioned on my doorstep after 6 days of ordering. Did order on a friday so it's really only 3/4 days. Free shippiung.

Just plugged it in and got it going, have had it going for about 45 minutes and im yet to find one imperfection on the panel. Have been eyeing off every pixel on different coloured backgrounds and i'm yet to find a dead or stuck pixel. The build quality greatly exceeds my expectations, the stand actually isn't as you hear people harp on about. I have to hit my desk pretty hard to make it wobble. Coming from a 27 inch 1080p TN panel is like going from a daewoo to a diablo. I feel the need to cuss to express my adoration of this thing, but i've already received 2 warnings on OCN and i fear another will provoke disciplinary action frown.gif

Everything on my desktop looks 5 times smaller than it did before, and 10 times clearer. The colours are amazing they are vibrant and pop out of the screen, whites and pure and blacks are suprisingly dark. I guess that's just my lack of IPS experience talking.

I can't waste anymore precious seconds it's time to enjoy this thing and let me rig finally stretch its legs and show me what it's got.

Game on.

If you want a laugh, plug in your old monitor and take a look. When I returned mine, I plugged in my old 22 tn panel from 7 years ago and it looked so aweful. Colors were flat and bland, everything looks so full. Don't know how I used it for so long. I don't think I can ever not use an ips/pls monitor forever now.

Well I am officially part of the club. I put a low ball offer in on a Pixel Perfect QX2710 and the guy accepted LOL, got it for $ 325, list $ 349.95. Do you guys think I should get the square trade warranty ?

Got it from "storewithstory" on Ebay.

Well it looks like I have 30 days to buy the Square Trade warranty, I will just wait and see what the monitor look once its delivered.

Don't bother wasting your time worrying about back light bleed imo. Even if you buy local and spend 5 grand on a tv backlight bleed happens on some sets. If it's to the level of it being defective then you wouldn't have to second guess it. Just enjoy.

That's rather normal to be honest. Even the top end A+ grade panels occasionally have such effect. The problem, if you can even call it a problem, seems to be that if you watch the monitor from small angles the backlight comes more visible and thus there seems to be a bit backlight bleeding in bottom of the screen if you turn your head in certain ways (because the stand is too low in my opinion). At least in my case that's quite easily fixed by raising the monitor a bit (have a book or whatever under the stand) so there's less angle and thus the black might look better. I wouldn't bother too much though as it sounds rather minimal and you probably won't even notice it unless it's a very dark scene and you are paying special attention to it.

Try my profile. It's also 6500k but the white is a lot more whiter than in any of the profiles on the front page. I also found the profiles on the front page rather yellow and mine is quite different and worked for quite a few so far. Give it a shot at least.
