Mine had the same issue. I read up on how to change the screen positing in windows and found that nvidia users can, but AMD cant. So i opened up the monitor casing and added some 'shims' to raise the screen within the monitor case and it also stopped the panel play. Look up in the OP the spoiler drop-down "'wntrsnowg' mod solution to panel play and screen centering"

Came home to mine today!

Meh box.




Does this mean I recieved a pixel perfect? Because I didn't pay for it, but there are no dead pixels at all.




Everything it came with. Thankfully I have a million spare cables so no converter needed.




Colors really look great on this.


Aside from some minor bleeding in the bottom right corner, this thing is perfect! Haven't gotten around to playing with the color calibration or refresh overclocking, but I fired up some games and they look gorgeous. My 1080p side monitor looks atrocious now. Overall I'm very very very pleased with what I got, especially for the price biggrin.gifthumb.gif

Thanks to all the members of this club that answered my questions in another thread and pointed me here!

Thank you sir!

green sum glossy QX2710 had no customs charge, had one stuck pixel, does 120Hz fine, build quality tight and good.

excellent castle matte QX2710 got hit by customs, no dead or stuck pixels, does 120Hz better than the green sum one, the bezel is not as tight and there is some panel play going on.

Matte vs Glossy (I have a window right next to my monitor): the matte is very light tbh, it doesn't reduce glare much on a bright day (fuzzes the glare out but you can still see it and its still annoying) but does inhibit it overall and in the evenings etc. I didn't find it annoying although whites look hazier. Overall prefer the matte one! You won't care too much about the difference unless you have both monitors on at the same time or are extremely anal about these things.

How much did you get charged ordering from excellentcastle and which courier?

Do people have something against the Glossy X-star's lol? The poll shows that no one has one.
