Good luck on your new monitor. Right now mine is running flawless. Can't tell if my monitor has any dead pixels or major back light bleed yet. Not going to go CSI to find imperfections You get what you pay for but then we got SPOILED with this amazing unit from my mother land. biggrin.gif

Note to everyone. INSTALL THE CATLEAP driver. I had issues when i used Splashtop or everytime i restart, my native resolution would go to 1080p.
and QX2710 would just go blank. mad.gif
Problem gone after I installed the CATLEAP driver for now. redface.gif

you might get lucky but if i was you i would save at least 100 quid in case they send you a letter in the next few weeks.I paid 61.50 for mine and paid the guy who delivered it.It was UPS btw.

Tomb Raider is on sale from Green Man Gaming and Origin this weekend for $20-25. Excellent showcase for 1440p and 120hz.

I can definitely say Dead Space 3 1440p@120hz with all the eye candy on is just crazy. devil.gif

Oh BTW i was able to get mine to 138hz before i started getting bad psychedelic stuff on the screen. Also with the screen at full brightness my uniformity is pretty good @ 120hz but if i turn it down very far it does get a bit off(not like others have shown but it is off). So for you guys with bad uniformity at 120hz turning up the brightness can help IF that is an option for you.

Also SVP(smooth video project) looks fantastic on 120hz for movies(if you can get used to it). I watched the Hobbit with SVP on and it is just too real.

There are some other guides, but it comes down to patching the driver and adding a new mode for the monitor.

I did patch it...
Still don't know the reason for the test patterns.

Please tell me what you think about the backlight bleed.

That's pretty bad, but given the pattern, I'd say most of the egregious stuff is fixable. Let me know if you decide to try to fix it, I've had some more ideas I'd love to try out on a willing subject smile.gif You would definitely have to open it up though.

I honestly think that 90% of backlight bleed is fixable within a few hours if you're ok opening it. I personally don't think you should feel guilty opening it and still using the warranty down the road if needed, given they send out monitors like this that and then say that backlight bleed isn't covered under the warranty. I personally didn't see any warranty "seal" they would check, so like I said, if you feel you can open it and follow some instructions, you ARE the perfect subject to really show we can fix this stuff!
