I have the same problem.. I tried for 30min yesterday trying to screw both screws in and all I could get was the top one.. I tried different screwdrivers and everything. But before I couldn't even get 1 in so at least the top one is in now..

My X-Star just arrived today. Looks like I got away with 0 dead pixels, but I do have some back light issues on the bottom middle. It's not horrible but definitely noticeable. I saw the guide about re mounting the panel and using electrical tape but I was not 100% sure what the method entailed. I can take the back off with out issue I'm sure, but I am not 100% sure where to check the mounting and where to add the electrical tape....or if this method is even advisable. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Now I have to start looking for a new video card!

ok so far it seems I´m stable at 120hz with the new cable. But the picture is somewhat darker, in a weird annoying way. Is there some way to alleviate this? Just turning monitor brightness up doesn´t really seem to do the trick.

That shipping service that monoprice uses, i think its called norco, is sooOoooOoo sketchy. I've had some guy show up at my house in regular non-professional clothes in his beat-to-hell old car. No signing or ID verification or anything, just gave me the package than drove off. Come to think of it, it might have been the same guy that you mention. They still charged a decent amount for shipping, so they must be making a killing.

Yes bottom middle spots can definitely be affected (usually lessened) by screw removal. Still requires some tape tweaking and such inside to really get rid of it though in most cases. IIRC OneGun barely had any to begin with (lucky too as he can't open his without help...).

Thanks guys I will give the screws a try when I get home. I most likely will want to do the tape method at some point. Where do I tape? Are there any pictures that might help point this out?
