As always, comes down to what is more important to you (the price or guaranteed perfection).

Yeah, I suppose when you're buying a 27", 1440p, IPS/PLS monitor that can potentially be overclocked to up to 120hz for sometimes less than half the price of big name brands, beggars can't be choosers.

At the $200-300 price point with proven quality and overall very good success at winning the panel lottery with getting a near perfect to perfect monitor you really cant complain. Squeeze the trigger on the Qnix or comparable Crossover (the 2795QHD is a strong rival to the 2710), I'm confident you will be glad you did thumb.gif

Aren't the X-Star and QNIX pretty much the same panel? I'm liking the X-Star DP2710 because it's only $200.

Also, what about buying a used Korean monitor from someone? Would be cool to find someone who upgraded or something and is selling one without dead pixels, but I'd understand if that's not a common occurence, lol.

Mostly yes. There are 3 different variants of the 2710. The single DVI-D input ones are the best overclockers by a wide margin and the older 02 panels are considered the very best of the 2710 and are highly sought after. The newer 2710 stock has cheapened on the build quality, the 07 version of the panel does not on the whole overclock as well as the older 02, and the newer 2710's suffer from use LED PWM Dimming (flicker). This thread covers this in exhaustive detail.

The Crossover 2795QHD does not use LED PWM Dimming, have fantastic panels, and overclock well. However, they are more expensive averaging $300.

I remember watching a video about the difference between 02 and 07 panels, how 07 panels pretty much have a higher gamma/lighter blacks. Couldn't you modify the colors of the 07 panel to try to mimic the 02? Increasing contrast or something?

I'm guessing the $200 X-Star I have in mind is a 07 panel sadly, lol.

In regard to PWM flickering, if my current BenQ RL2450HT TN has it, then I haven't noticed and it shouldn't be a problem.

1) Manufacture is based there and for the seller to get credit for bad monitors, they must be returned to headquarters.

2) Less hassle for the vendors with RMA's as the shiiping cost to South Korea by proxy, pretty much invalidates your one year warranty. Most wont bother with returns or a monitor going bad unless the vendor picks up the cost and the only time they do that is if you get a bad one out of the box or if it fails within 14 days.

I have been talking with dream-seller and he said that:

1) It is indeed shipped from their US garage (eBay listing says it's in California)

2) If I want to return, but am not covered by the return policy (such as dead pixels): "If you're willing to pay for return shipping fee, you can return to our US garage. But if the item is not in original condition like a new, 20% of restocking fee will be deducted as well." (this is also the case for the full refund that is covered by his policy)

It's possible that he didn't clearly understand my messages, but if what he says is true, that's pretty awesome.

What are your system specs/OS (see sig)? What model QX2710 (purchase link!)? Are you running more than 1 monitor? Have you done the overclock confirmation tests (post screenshots!)?

1) 1st page OP--> "Overclocking Guide and Help" --> follow "Step 4" explicitly and post picture for "Validation"!
also see my post/Links HERE .... for more screenshot examples wink.gif

Flashing on startup? ... single monitor? on the edge of stability, almost out of range ... change cables/ports? Does it do the same thing if you shut it down then restart after your rig/monitor is warmed up (10+min)?

If these are new panels do they have PWM diming? (see test below?)
AND are you getting gamma shift (diming of the panel) when you overclock?

This is the model I bought off Ebay on 4/19/14 "[Matte] X-STAR * DP2710LED Samsung PLS Panel WQHD" http://www.ebay.com/itm/X-star-DP2710-LED-WQHD-2560x1440-27inch-Computer-Monitor-Glossy-/330932578190?ssPageName=ADME:L:OC:US:1120

I have no idea if this is the best panel for overclocking, but it seems to do a good job. I also don't have a camera, so I did some screen shots.

It only flashes a little bit during start up, for maybe 10 seconds. I can see the desktop on startup, but it just wigs out, almost like a display driver acting out when overclocking. Then it's fine after 10 seconds.

I have an 860k + 290 (15.9)
Windows 10
Single Monitor

I have not seen any dimming or pwm shifting on ufo tests. I'm just wondering if I'm going to blow this monitor up...lol.

So my QX2710 wouldn't turn on this morning. Tried different power cables and it still wouldn't turn on. I have no way of testing if the power brick is the problem or if it's the monitor. I bought the monitor 2 years ago off e-bay seller green-sum and use the monitor heavily. Anyone have suggestions?

FYI, the glossy QNIX QX2710 is $200 today and tomorrow!
