I very much doubt that they will take it back because of BLB!... Its a disclaimer on most if not all of the sellers pages...BLB is one of the major reason these are A- panels....The panel will be sat in a bent frame and i would straighten the frame which will fix your BLB 100% and its not a hard job to do at all!...There are a few posts of mine on link below explaining how i straightened my frame which fixed my BLB 100%....Also forget tape you don't need it!

Toasty i have 2x new R9 290 cards and your patch does not seem to have broken HDCP for me...i have not found one page on youtube i can not view and i can watch live TV from the BBC or ITV or Channel 5...in fact i have not found anything i can not watch yet and i have not disabled any video acceleration what so ever...Clearly patching the driver does not guaranteed loss of HDCP support?

Made a new ICC profile today, if anyone wants to try it out. 96hz, profile. Its 11 clicks up from the brightness being all the way down.

Quick question/advice needed:

I'm in the market for a new 27" and wasn't sure if the Qnix/X-Star is right for me.

I was going to get the Monoprice glass 27" monitor when it goes on sale for $350ish: http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=113&cp_id=11307&cs_id=1130703&p_id=10489&seq=1&format=2

But I came across these options. Now my computer is NOT some sort of powerhouse overclocker, I mainly use it for media, internet and the occasional game of TF2 and GTA V when it comes out. I don't game that much. I'm not looking to set benchmarks, I'm just a regular user.

I understand computers pretty well, build them and I am not afraid to take apart a monitor, I am also open to a LITTLE risk for BLB as long as I can fix it, but would buy a pixel perfect monitor regardless.

Is the risk worth it for someone who is a casual gamer? Is the 120hz over 60hz at the $300 range worth the risk and would I notice the difference? I also don't know when the next sale is, it could be next week or in 6 months, so that is a minor factor.

Also, is glass or matte the better option for a general dark, dimly lit room?

Thanks!

tried your profile, while it does look better than all other profiles except the asus profile. at MAX brightness your profile looks better than asus and has more contrast(on my screen) BUT at lower brightness levels(20 and less) the asus has more pure whites, im getting a yellowish white with your profile...

All these screens are different i know, thanks for sharing!!thumb.gif

I was a little off on my brightness clicks, it was 10 up and not 11. Even the 10 clicks came out with a 129cd/m in the whites.

Maybe im strange, but i like my brightness up high, about 20.... does too much brightness ruin color accuracy?

I try and get as close to 120 cd/m as I can based on the industry standard for photos. I will choose higher than lower if I cant hit 120 on the nose. If you prefer brighter, thats your choice, I go for accuracy based on the industry standard.

Finally using my X-star that I ordered from dream-seller on 3/10 (it arrived on the 28th).

There is about a line of 1.5 mm of dead pixels (less depending on the color) in the lower left hand corner right above the taskbar, so its pretty hard to notice. Have not found any other dead pixels so far anywhere else.

I have pretty much zero black light bleed using jason farrell's black screen test. No discoloration of any sort when looking directly at the screen.
