yes, you'll go blind by looking at the infinite reflections onto/from the glossy panel. biggrin.gif

Thanks guys, really REALLY usefull thread!

I bought a pixel perfect one from the same seller earlier in the week too and have not received any tracking info. I am betting that the pixel perfect is going to take a bit longer depending on their QA and it said in the description "pixel perfect = 0 dead/stuck pixels" I will be shooting him a email for a status update in the next day or 2.

From what I saw onlinwe there's not THAT much difference between matte and glossy -picture wise.
But reflection wise...gloosy is ridiculous if you got any sort of sunlight in your room.

I think its similar...pulse width modulation...its a way to control the brightness...basically instead of reducing the current to the backlight to lower brightness it basically turns the screen on and off really fast. Now usually this is not a huge deal, though some people are very sensitive to it, because the larger manufacturers use a very high frequency. However with these Korean monitors when they use it they use a very low frequency version and it will cause flickering I believe.

NCX did a review and his didnt have any.....Overclock.ru Dead reviewed the same brand and model and his had it..at 160Hz....very very low.

I see, that's most interesting to know!

Dream-seller is a man of his word.


I respect this seller..he has been swamped with orders and seems to handling it well. Not to mention the quality issue he admits. I'm confident I will get a decent monitor

You must be the lucky one - he kept promising me it would be shipped the next day, and it never was, and over a week last still not shipped.

Cancelled yesterday.

Ty, I just sent a message through the ebay contact form. I hope to hear something from him. I'll post here if I get any reply. smile.gif

Are there any image comparisons online anywhere?

Reflection, without any sunlight:

As you can see in terms of reflection, huge difference.
As for the image, yes there was somewhere on the internet, but I have no idea where I saw it.

I love it, people on forums know what frame skipping is, but a place that actually builds monitors does not.
