sweeet

and its not perfect, let me list why I think its A-

theres a couple tiny bruises (hard to find) in the monitor or dust I don't know... I think that's why it was declared A-

Otherwise I'm happy, you cannot get a perfect monitor of this size anyways, no matter if you go with Dell or Apple there's always something tiny wrong.

I had 4 replacements on my U2711 and still had bruises on one or a dead pixel on another... Lol if you're looking for perfection you won't find it tongue.gif

Funny you should mention 'bruises'

I think I have one on mine. Looks like a smudge on the glass but on the inside. Been thinking of removing the glass and checking it out. Could this be the case or is this on the panel itself?

Backlight bleed on the other hand does seem pretty bad along the bottom. I might consider doing the tapemod at some point because yeah it's pretty bad. It has a "tan" colored tint to it. Worst BLB in any monitor I've had before and I've owned a lot. 96Hz seems to be fine. Briefly tested 120Hz and it also seems fine, but I didn't do any extensive testing or anything.
Are u sure its not pls "shine" does it change when viewed from diffrent angles? If so from what i understand thats normal? Although i think shine is more of a silvery purple color. At least it is on mine. Id have to say the blacklevels arent as go as i hoped but are barable. My asus tn panel had aswome blacks.

I guess I'll be getting the Qnix, then. Unless someone can suggest another that overclocks well, similarly priced and has better colors/input lag.

Panel itself. But sometimes these bruises get "relieved" so just leave it be and it will either go away or you'll forget about it

Is there any extra customs cost/taxes for dream-sellers 27" X-Star coming to the US?

At $299 I am very very tempted to pick one up.

I've had the monitor for a few months. I also bought it used so if it was going to go away it would have already.

Don't notice during gaming but surfing I do. Against a light background it shows up pretty well. Roughly an inch in diameter. Really looks like a smudge on the inside of the glass.
