No, but multiples of 24 work best especially for watching any video on the display. I also think 96 is a good sweet spot for colors being vivid and bright still while giving a good refresh rate. The uniformity issue becomes larger the higher you go on refresh rates. 120hz would work well for games mostly (although it's definitely less vibrant at the top right for me if I'm gaming at 120hz, not distractingly so or anything). I likely will end up gaming at 120hz anyway and keep it at 60 or 96 for desktop use, honestly... the smoothness is amazing and even with the uniformity change it's nothing I notice while gaming particularly.

If you want the pixel-perfect-type promotion, then yeah... I'm not honestly sure how meaningful it is though.

would I be just wasting $30 on the 'pixel perfect' from green-sum when hulustar is basically doing the same thing at $300?

There's no way to know for sure... I'd guess that you're more likely to get one with no pixels dead/stuck on a "pixel-perfect" listing, but it's definitely not a 100% sure thing. It's really up to you whether the extra $30 is worth it for the better chance or not smile.gif. Personally I tend towards thinking it isn't that big of a likelihood you'd get one with issues in the first place, though.

It's hard to justify a 10% increase in price when most people have been getting 0-2 stuck/dead pixels without paying the premium.

All of our monitors are displayed as DVI monitor, no worries.

I know the uniformity is supposed to worsen with refresh rate boosts, but am curious how it compares to others' panels...

96hz picture with my phone (intended to show the uniformity difference brightness-wise, it's just from my cell phone and is dimmer than it looks in-person, the blue/yellow tinging is pretty accurate though across the panel)):




120hz of the same:


Should I be concerned at all? To me it looks like the same uniformity difference but just more visible because of the dimmer display at 120hz compared to 96hz (as everyone has mentioned PLS panels darken some at higher refresh). Both pictures taken with max brightness.


At 135 the left side of my screen gets darker then my right side, so yeah that is definitely due to OCing. Will it damage the monitor? I think so.

I won't say its inbetween matte and gloss because the matte does a great job of removing all the reflections, if you check the pics in my review you won't see any evidence of flash being used, while taking the pictures, thats because of the matte screen.
I just think this matte coating is so slim that it does almost no damage to color vibrance and clarity.

Yup. There hasn't been any case of more then 0-2 dead pixels on these panels anyway.

Anyone who has delt with hulustar able to help me? I've bought a QX2710 for $317 from him/her and its been 24 hours and still hasnt been marked as sent nor have I gotten any message about it. I contacted him/her a few hours ago regarding it but no reply. I live in Melbourne, Australia so we are only one hour ahead in time from Seoul, rather hard to get in contact with.
