Yeah, they've got a bug in them that makes them self-animate at night and kill your pets.

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 does one do 120Hz fine and one do it better? Does one have scan lines?

Anyone else getting burn ins?
I'm getting them on the right side of the screen only. It only happens when I overclock though and goes away when I set it back to 60hz and wait a few minutes.

Burn in isn't actually burn in on LCDs, I've been reading up on it. It will go away after a little while, or after you leave it on an all white screen and then all black screen for a little while. I say do nothing since it goes away on it's own; it's not permanent. It does happen more quickly on the dark cloudy area that shows up on the right side when overclocking. I don't know why, that's just the way it is.

I apparently missed the bit about using brightness 12 clicks from off when I first tried that 96hz ICC in the first post, but I just tried it again and it seems perfect. All the test images on misc websites and software I tried were right on...

It was to the UK, and he sent it via UPS. Total cost was $320 ($20 was for shipping to the UK).

One has a slightly darker top right corner and overall the colour balance was a bit weirder, there were darker and lighter shades on the worse one, while the better one is much more uniform (still some dark bits though). Not a big difference by any means, don't think its noticeable in use.

Here is a fantastic 1440P wallpaper, well worth at least checking out on your display (if you are not a Game Of Thrones fan). You can see like every pore on Eddard's face and the level of detail on the pelt and his gloves is awesome. My display not here yet; basing this off my 27" iMac at work. Home at 1200P it looks like relative crap (of course but still striking).
