There is not really such a thing because your bleed is not going to be in the exact same spots and may not even be caused by the exact same thing. UNOE did make it a lot more specific just today a few pages ago frankly with a great tip too to turn it on while it is open so you can see what effect your tape is having as you do it.

I don't really like the whole idea either man but you are just going to have to crack yours open. Once you do this will all make a lot more sense. We don't even need to move the panels themselves in any major way or unplug anything. Just start with the four bottom screws and then it will start to come apart (just plastic clips hold front and back together).

As for pics I have seen some but they haven't been very helpful cause I don't yet really know what I am looking at. Again, just do it.

Edit: By the way just removing the screws alone may relieve some pressure and at least make some of the bleed less.

Can you please post pictures or explain thoroughly on how to do the tape mod? A lot of us would greatly appreciate on how to do it properly, because as of right now, the yellow tint is driving me insane.

I have some pics that I plan to post just sitting down today for first time. I want to get one more picture with the monitor in a completely dark room to show the improvements. So its still daylight here in Cali, stay tuned.
But I didn't post any pictures a few pages back yet, that must have been someone else I did the tape mod last night.

Could you possibly post the pictures now? I'll follow the mod and post my results afterwards
post #1764 of 25891
Okay so my QNIX QX2710 just arrived this morning!



I paid $317AUD including shipping, and did not spend extra for the "Zero Dead Pixel" stock, although when it arrived it had a "Zero Dead Pixel" sticker, but ironically it had one dead pixel.

It was ordered from Hulustar on the 16th, and due do a public holiday, and then the weekend it was shipped out to me via DHL on the 20th Monday and arrived today - 23rd Thursday. (Seoul, South Korea to Melbourne, Australia)

Overall the seller experience has been good, I asked him questions about the monitor about whether he would open it up and check for dead pixels and back light bleeding to which he replied he would.

So on with the unboxing...

Unlike some other users here who received theirs covered in foam, mine was covered in a thick layer of plastic wrap, and was taped to every surface of the damn box - was freakin' annoying to get off!



As you can see here, the box has the 'Zero Dead Pixel' sticker, and I believe the sticker next to it denotes a Matte panel as opposed to the Glossy ones. It was taped up heavily, and you could easily tell that it was unboxed previously - which in this case is a good thing.



The box was packed pretty tight and neat, which meant nothing was moving around inside the box when I shook it a little.



One thing I should mention are the VESA mounting points, I have actually purchased this VESA mount, so it should bolt right on.



Box with all the accessories, power adaptor, power cable (Korean), travel adaptor, DVI-D cable, 3.5mm audio cable and instruction manual.





Mmmm look at that reading material.





Here's a close up of the DVI-D, I've been able to overclock mine to 120Hz with this cable so it's done well for itself!



And here it is out of the box, with the screen protector that looks as if it has been passed down...



Here's a pic of the base edge, it almost looks worn out, you probably can't see it as clear in this image but it's not really an issue.



Now here's an interesting pic, I've got the matte version, although being matte it isn't as matte as my old LGE2441-BV, which was almost solid matte compared to this. So there is still the opportunity for a little glare. But as I've been using the monitor right now to type this up with the window light directly on it, I can barely notice that much glare.



And all hooked up and looking absolutely amazing. I have to say, as it has been said many times in this thread before - the image quality is absolutely amazing, very vivid and bright. Although I did end up using the .ICC file for the Samsung S27A850D, which has the same panel as the QX2710. I got it from TFT Central, it's custom made from the guys over there.



Just a bit of close ups of the panel.





And here's that one dead pixel...



Here's another image with a better background. I'm hoping eventually it will go away, but in all honesty you can't notice it at all from viewing distance, as you will see soon with the dead pixel tests.



It's alive! Very nice looking panel again.



All hooked up... make no mistake this is a big monitor!



So here are some test images.









So as you can see there is a VERY minimal amount of back light bleeding, and honestly cannot identify any until I actually took those pictures.

Now overclocking wise I was able to hit 120Hz easily without any artifacts, although I'm just running at 100Hz for the time being. I am using the cable that came with the monitor, and running an NVIDIA GTX560 (non-Ti.)

I'd recommend looking into calibrating the display, even though it looks amazing I wouldn't call it accurate.

To touch on a few things that have been said before such as the panel play mine has a little amount of play but nothing to cry home to.

The base stand isn't premium quality, but it honestly isn't that bad. In my case I'll be taking it off soon and mounting it to my VESA stand.

In conclusion I'm very happy with my purchase. $317, no delay in shipping, Hulustar was prompt with communication. No backlight bleeding and only one dead pixel that I can barely notice, and a stable overclock at 120Hz.

One issue I'm having that obviously isn't a monitor problem, is that I can't keep the refresh rate in games such as CSS, CSGO etc. Is there a way to force this?

Anyways hope you guys liked my unboxing, and for those wondering if they should commit to one of these I'd definitely recommend doing so.. $300, honestly?

While overclocking my X-star DP2710 I seem to get LCD burn in/image retention temporarily. It goes away after a couple of minutes and is most clearly seen on grey backgrounds, and to some extent blue-ish colors. It's not visible whatsoever on for example black, white or red backgrounds. The burn in doesn't seem appear at all when running the monitor on 60hz, at least not within an hour or so as opposed to 96hz or above.

Any explanation for this? Any way to prevent it from happening?

I got my first one from dream-seller and returned it because it had a butt load of dead pixels. It was a really really awful buying experience and I would recommend everyone to stay away (which I don't do lightly).

The three in the photo are from hulustar.

I can play BF3 on medium/low settings at 3x2560x1440 and get around 40-70 fps. Or I can play on ultra/high with one monitor at 2560x1440 and get 90-130fps.

I haven't done any benchmarks yet but if you had something in mind I can run it and let you know.
