Easy like others said. 15-20 minutes being very careful. Gently pry the stand back and forth to get the start on popping the bezel off. After doing this to 3 it seems like too much force isn't the answer. So try to pop from a different angle. I ended up unscrewing one of the side metal rails instead of popping that out of the case. I think its much easier to do than how it looks in the videos.

is it just me or have all the ebay sellers hiked up their prices on X-STAR DP2710?

yup, they all went up to around £300 afew days ago. Dream-Seller said it was because the manufacturer had increased the price.

Dusty R Slack is selling a used X-Star, Amazon Prime shipped for $210. I don't have the gonads to pull the trigger
http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00CB8RQ2Y

I emailed him anyway asking about stuck/dead pixels and any BLB along with why he's selling.

-edit
Well someone got a smoking deal. I was about to buy it after his response:

Mike,

I run boot camp on my MacBook Pro and Windows 7 would BSOD with the monitor plugged in via display port and HDMI. No problems under OSX, could never get the driver issue resolved in Windows 7, a deal breaker for me.

I never noticed any dead or stuck pixels while playing Bioshock and Max Payne 3.

Backlight bleed was there and noticeable in dark scenes. Nothing out of the ordinary for a Korean monitor, I believe most who obtained uniform backlighting on these displays had to take them apart and adjust.

But it was gone (sadpanda)

Got my first one at $279 from dream seller then price went to $329.
waited 2 months then bought my 2nd one for $279.

I see price is back up so you probably got a couple months to wait for $279 again.

PS. Both mine OC to 120mhz with little/no BLB.

Problem is I have 7970's CF which only support 1xDL-DVI. My SL-DVI is flickering a little but usable.

I just got my Qnix today, and tried to overclock it but no matter what I do I seem to get Browser stutter. I assume that it doesnt have anything to do with OC of the monitor as it happens even with the standart 60hz setting. I tried setting 120hz but my screen started spazzing so there I would guess that indeed the OC of the monitor isnt working anymore, but with 96 hz I am not getting that problem.
Trying to enable the option of reducing DVI-Frequency makes it impossible for the site testufo.com to sync, so I cant test it. Anyone know why?

Also what kind of numbers do you use on OC. 96.000hz or something like 95.950 hz?

As far as browser stutter goes, I think that's more of a browser issue rather then driver/monitor issue.

As far as 96hz setting, I use 96hz in Nvidia control panel for all three of mine, and it works fine.

I am using the QNIX QX2710 Led Evolution II. I am using the Catalyst 14.3 Videodrivers for the R9 290. I have "tested" the computer with another monitor, as in it worked and displayed something. I have not tested the monitor on another PC.

I can really only imagine the browser stutter to not be monitor related, it wouldnt make any sense otherwise. I am not getting any artifacts or the like at all after all.
