Glossy might be an issue if it's put next to a window.

I sit facing a window so that shouldn't be an issue hopefully

I found some broken ones on ebay but they are still expensive. This one seems like a good candidate though. I don't have the money to buy a broken one however so maybe I will find one locally.

Well three weeks ago you likely would have; I think he is a bit overloaded now. Still could happen though.

Sorry, who are you speaking to?

The guy above me who hopes he gets his by the end of the week. If I don't quote then it's a response to the last post before mine (though I still could use a ^ to clarify I guess). If another one slips through while I am typing I will go back and edit with quote.

And yay re. your display, by the way. After all that customs delay and stress I hope you get a good one!

Go download what you need now if you haven't already. Test mode thing and driver patch plus even though you don't need it with NV I would just use CRU for higher Hz. More fine-tuning ability plus don't have to do anything else for games to use the higher refresh.

Ey Guys!
I could need some suggestions about where i should be the monitor.

I've been looking at the X-Star from Green-sum: 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

But i've heard good from Hulustar and they (as far as i know) still got their 0-2 pixel thing on this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/0-2-Defect-Pixel-X-STAR-DP2710-27-LED-Matte-QHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-2560x1440-/130892638671?pt=AU_comp_monitor&hash=item1e79cf29cf
But Hulustar got an extra 40$ for shipping...

Cheers!

any difference between the one you listed and this one?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/27-QNIX-QX2710-Evolution-2-ll-2560x1440-Matte-Screen-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-/140962582455?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20d2064fb7

Think I may go for the glossy finish over matte though

Yeah that one does not have free shipping and is listed in USD so will probably end up costing you more.

Considering you currently have quite a heavily matte monitor at the moment I wouldn't recommend the glossy unless you've had one before. The matte coating on these monitors is very light as everyone has pointed out.
