Guess what? I just created an account especially to answer you!
It seems to me that the issue is DisplayPort 'knows' when your monitor is off. So if you shut down your monitor, the programs it contained will be moved because the computer does no longer send an image to the monitor and does not have it in it's desktop config (it makes a new one). So not an issue, I think it is by design of the DisplayPort spec.
The flicker is probably because Windows is building a new desktop consisting now of one monitor more now. When I switch from one monitor to Surround it flickers too.
Sorry, it's hard to explain but I hope you understand me (English is not my prime language)

Aww you guys are too fast...

Hello, I'm about to order a QNIX 2710 Evolution II, and I was thinking of getting the MATTE Perfect Pixel version for 20$ more. Is getting the perfect pixel version necessary? I really don't want a bunch of dead pixels.

Here is the one I was thinking of ordering.

Also, I noticed some say EVOLUTION II SE and some don't say SE. Is there a difference?

Thanks!

So far as we can tell, PP will not increase your chances of getting a monitor without pixel defects; that is to say, you're just as likely to get a panel with a pixel defect if you order PP or non-PP. Perfect pixel is more or less a promise to "take care of you" if you do receive a monitor with a pixel defect that's covered by the PP policy (which varies! read the PP policy carefully!). "Take care of you" can include a simple refund of the PP price difference (total scam), payment per defective pixel (not-quite-total-scam), free return shipping with a replacement (best possible outcome; can require bargaining with seller), or refund and return. Given that 90% of the monitors come without pixel defects anyways, your decision should come down to this.

Do you want to get a perfect monitor the first time, and not have to deal with hassles if you do have a defective pixel? Then you shouldn't be buying these Korean monitors, as a hassle-free experience is not the norm when dealing with "perfect pixel" defects. Spend more, buy Dell, or HP, or Apple. You're pinching pennies in the wrong spot for what you really want. Return policies are clear, customer service is real-time, shipping is pre-paid, and cross-shipping options are available.

Are you willing to gamble that you'll get a good one, and are willing to put in the time and effort to fix it if something goes wrong in that 10% chance? Then PP is an option.

Willing to settle on a 90% chance to get a good monitor? Get non-PP. <- My personal choice.

is there any difference in the actual hardware though? Why is it called SE? Doesn't that stand for SECOND EDITION?

"Are there any diffrences between the QNIX QX2710 Evolution II 27" and the QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution ll SE 27" ?
The difference is pixel policy.
SE model has 0~5 dead/stuck pixel.
Non-SE model has 0~3 dead/stuck pixel."

This is answered, when asking amazon on this one. Check the "6 answered questions" link

Nope, no difference that we can tell in the hardware.

thanks everyone!

So should I buy the NON-SE one? I can get the perfect pixel one for 320$'s. Should I get the perfect pixel for 20 more? or is it pointless?


EDIT:
Also, this one doesn't say if it's MATTE or GLOSSY... any ideas? I'm going to get the MATTE one.

My Monitor is here!
110hz OC'able.

115, causes odd lines every now and then. 120 is impossible.
96 hz is perfect though.

NO DEAD pixels. Checked via:
http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php
Absolutely no BLB - despite my camera picking it up. It doesn't seem like it in person.

Couldn't be happier right now!

Pics, videos etc to shortly follow!

Bought from here:
Came well packed, with an adapter + audio cables + DVI cable (which I'm using as my one at home didn't seem to show an output):

PS.
Followed the OC guide by toasty - patched (fully) the Nvidia drivers - before getting started in OC'ing smile.gif
