Yeah, sometimes it seems like they just pull stuff out of their rear ends. Like maybe they didn't know what PWM was.

Are glossy more sought after? I got the matte finish and i'm glad i did.

They are because the colors *pop* more without the anti-glare film. I'm unclear why they should be more expensive. I think it was a supply/demand thing.

Thank you for the buyer's guide/tutorial/link biggrin.gif

At first glance I noticed the single input monitors are the ones with 300cd/m^2, and the 350cd/m^2 versions are the multi input monitors, which can't be overclocked past 85Hz, right? I think it's a little confusing to look at with so many different item descriptions, where most of them are the same, or at least very close.

I guess the phrases I have to steer clear of are "350cd/m^2" and Multi Ture 10 or whatever it's called biggrin.gif

It seems like there are no glossy panels on ebay.co.uk either, but it's fine since my secondary monitor will be a matte panel as well biggrin.gif Can't wait to get paid, I'm really excited to try this thing!

EDIT: Just kidding, they have the qx2710 Glossy version in stock! Does it make a big difference in picture quality, or should I just go with the Matte version?

accessorieswhole has been notorious in the past for putting Tempered Glass over a Matte and calling it a "Glossy" panel and what you got was the WORST of 2 worlds if indeed you expected a true "Glossy" panel redface.gif

ADD in the ridiculous reply to MenacingTuba's inquiry ["only pixel perfect is PWM free"] and I wouldn't trust them as far as I could spit right now!!! redface.gif
I wouldn't buy that model thinking its a true glossy without significant reproducible documentation and a guaranteed return if it's not a true glossy from accessorieswhole rolleyes.gif A statement to the fact that if you disassemble the panel you won't find tempered glass "taped" in there and if you do accessorieswhole pays the return shipping and you get "exactly" what you ordered in return a true "Glossy"!!!
Some can tell the difference between glossy and tempered glass by feel, but to confirm if tempered glass is on your panel you'd have to disassemble it take a pic and say ***?

Trust us, or do an advanced search with MenacingTuba or my handles regarding tempered glass vs glossy wink.gif

I bought it on an auction from ebay, tested to go to 120hz and no pixel issues. And it was as advertised. Lawsons color correction for 110 is what im using currently.

Welcome by the way biggrin.gif... you got a heck of a deal from ... bftswain? I follow the ebay PP auctions regularly ... It's a rock solid way to go if you properly inquire the right questions, which essentially is your guarantee under the ebay buyer protection plan wink.gif

The good news is you have a standard power supply cable lying around, it'll plug into the brick directly so you can bypass the whole 2 prong adapter thing, this is probably the route i'm going to go.

Good stuff +R ... would have been perfect if you also had included the std 3 prong power cable (USA) in there!
I also believe this is an important precaution for US users to take for longevity as opposed to the cheap 2 prong adapters thumb.gif

Right ... when quickly scanning ebay adds, simplest thing to look for is PLS in the title ... avoid anything with multi-input (AH-VA panel)
I'd prefer the glossy at a comparable price, but read my comments above or do the advanced search mentioned above +glossy vs matte wink.gif

I got a straight answer from GreenSum once, but it seemed like to me over a couple weeks back and forth (they only respond to your questions once per weekday) they had multiple people answering questions. Some were more knowledgeable than others.

Anyway GreenSum told me that there are multiple listings with different prices for certain identical monitors because they are based on shipping availability. The cheapest option for a group of listings like that is the one that ships to countries that have trade agreements or are just not long distance. The most expensive can go anywhere--like Africa (might be hard to get them to deliver to Sierra Leone right now frown.gif)

Thats hilarious, yeah i did get it from bftswain. Thanks for the welcome.thumb.gif

I had it shipped across the border and brought it in myself (I'm Canadian) and happily they didnt make me pay tax or duty on it.

Okay, thank you very much. Did a quick Google search, more people are stating that the picture quality is very similar in them, so I guess I'm just gonna go with the matte version smile.gif My OCD will probably freak out if one monitor is matte and the other is glossy tongue.gif

I would like to add that i ordered 2 matte screens from dream-seller but received glossy screens instead, maybe message beforehand to make sure you really are getting what your paying for, this could have been a one off - Adam
