Also matte or glossy, what do you guys think.

I ordered from Dream-seller. They ship very quickly, monitor came only in it's standard box, but it was in good shape when it got to me.

As for Matte or Glossy, it depends on what room your computer is in. I have mine in my basement, so the Glossy was perfect for me (i have pot lights in the ceiling I can dim). If you're in a room where you can't control lighting, or where there are any windows to the side or behind, you're better off getting the matte screen.

how the panel is not secured to the bezel worries me, in that it could've been seriously damaged in shipping it! so anyways now what i want to do is just fix it so it stops light bleed and doesn't wiggle around. what's the best way to fix the panel from moving around after dismantling it?

That is called panel play. Look at the op at the last spoiler which is titled "wntrsnowg mod to panel play"

SVP uses MPC-HC I guess + madVR? Just do it like it's being said there: You simply need to go to the "Internal Filters" section of the options for MPC and uncheck DXVA.
If you have lav-filters aswell then you have to go to the lav video settings aswell.
I'm on GNU/Linux right now and not bothered to boot into windows and check so just search around for DXVA.

I actually did try that and didn't get it to work. I got it to play in VLC by disabling GPU acceleration, but you can't use SVP with VLC.

This link has a pretty good guide with some good info but you would use this after installing and enabling SVP which should be automatic with the installer. Hope this helps.
I use mplayer2 + gl3 on GNU/Linux and http://haruhichan.com/forum/showthread.php?7545-KCP-Kawaii-Codec-Pack on windows.
KCP works flawless for me on windows, you just have to disable DXVA in the LAV settings.
It has interpolation aswell (in madVR).

Disabling HW accel in LAV settings (not internal filters of MPC) worked. Thanks!

I am likely to receive my monitor in 2 or 3 days, and I am so excited for it!

Going to prep for it by looking up some nice wallpapers. Do you guys have any suggestions for good sites? Tried googling for images with custom set resolution but a lot of them just seemed like low quality upscales....

Another weird request: is there any way of removing or hiding the logo on the monitor in a nice way? The X-star one doesn't look too sleek, so some fix for that (that does not include duct tape wink.gif) would be awesome!

Thanks in advance!

Permanent marker over it and try to blend it in with the bezel hahaha.

You could try paint/polish remover. Just don't let it sit too long or it might eat the plastic bezel too.
