is the clarity between matte and glossy about the same? since matte layer is grain free.
also, does the quality of the dual link dvi affect the ability to overclock if i am using high tier gpu? quality of the cable came with the monitor?
Stige has comparison photos with the glass on and off, about 7 pages back or if you look in the gallery, he can also post it.
As for the cable the one it comes with is fine, but if you're buying or have a separate cable make sure its rated in the 9gb range. The GPU doesn't matter as long as it's supported.

Can anyone confirm this?
Thanks in advance
Dust can only get in when they initially put the glass on. None of mine have it. The glass as mentioned above adds somewhat of a small clarity offset as well as brightness but probably by about 1% for clarity and you can see the difference in contract. Combine matte + the glass + Gloss and you've got a good 3-5% difference from Gloss at least.
Is it really noticable? No, unless you have them side by side for comparison.

If you got the tempered glass it also might feel like plastic when you touch it, atleast mine did even though it was clearly glass when I removed it.
Hope this helps a little bit.
Adding on to this for the initial question, you CAN tell the difference between Gloss underneath and Matte. If Matte is underneath you will not see deep blacks when the monitor is off. Such as I have my tempered next to mine I will see a MUCH brighter black backround on the tempered glass when the monitor is off as far as reflections go.

There a few different ones on eBay any particular brand is AH-IPS is better.
I would be building a new PC with a R9 280X and I5.
My old monitor was a gateway 23 1200 60hz.
I never notice any bad lag.
I will mainly play RPG/ PVP
PLS is newer so the quality is a bit better.

I was hopping to buy a 2nd Qnix but I guess i'll be waiting till the holiday season is over. Hopefully it will go back down.
From the sounds of it they're running out of stock, as they've been telling me they've been waiting for more production.
Currently Regular Gloss is also in production.

Stige posted screenshots a while back basically after removing the faceplate you need a sharp/thin razor to remove the tape holding the glass down so that you don't dmg the glass/screen. Stige can fill you in.
