Nice write up!

I've had mine on constantly since I've had it, and oc to 120hz and havent had any burn in issues.

And thats lame about them not protecting the monitor. Mine was wrapped around in bubble wrap.

Try some ICCs but many of the "best" ones are too bright at 60Hz.

Ask if he will give you a partial refund, if not, tell him to arrange a pick up and if he denies just file a dispute.
If he agrees to give a refund, open up the monitor and check if its in good standing.

Also, BCC will definitely give you a refund cause he just mailed you a product that he is selling for a lower price.
I have a X-Star and I would say choose partial refund rather then going through the trouble of sending this one back again.

Looks vibrant enough, maybe when I get bored.

Looking good! Nice review! And thanks for the detailed information, the more the better (:

Just to be sure, this wasn't a pixel perfect right?
And it's more or less this one right? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-X-STAR-DP2710LED-27-LED-2560x1440-QHD-Computer-Monitor-Matte-/111070644047?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_Monitors&hash=item19dc53874f

ok, 96hz seems to be working very good, I can enable 120hz but I got some red/green flickering not much but I can see it, I use HD7970 in Crossfire and use a gold plated DVI-D cable... can I do something to run 120hz 100% good? I'm happy with 96hz but just wonder if I can get 120hz 100% stable. any trick or something smile.gif

Yes you can run any ICC at whatever refresh. There are only different ones specifying Hz for these displays due to the darkening effect when overclocked. So, for example, I found the Asus PLS ICC that everyone loves too bright at 96 but looks fantastic at 120 (and does that Asus display run at or overclock to 120?). And brightness etc can be manually tweaked too of course but kind of a pain to get 'perfect' I find.

Also if you have a few scan lines now at 120 keep tweaking and try again; mine have gone away (though only ever saw a few red in middle). CRU refinements can help but it's hairy. I think I am using LCD Reduced now though and wasn't originally. Still on stock cable.

I have tried to overclock my monitor but whenever I try to go above 96 Hz, nVidia panel says that "Test failed. Custom resolution 2560x1440 at 120 Hz is not supported by your display". Am I just doing something wrong or does it mean that I am not going to be able to go past 96 Hz in any way? Cheers!
