Taking a picture always makes the bleed look a lot worse then it actually is..

Oh wow I never actually tried before just now. It really does make it look MUCH worse, good call.

How is the burn-in at 120hz? Been thinking of picking up one, but don't know who is the best ebay seller. Would probably want a matte model with whomever has the best grade panel with little to none BLB and no dead/stuck pixels.

The burn in doesn't happen to everyone, just fyi...it seems random, and I've only heard the complaint from a couple people.

Are there any downsides to overclocking? Can it damage the monitor at all, such as killing pixels? I tried OCing my samsung monitor which everyone says uses the same panel type, but couldn't get over 85hz. Noticed a dead pixel as well. =/

Everything I have heard about overclocking monitors says that it does not damage the monitor in any way, nor does it shorten the lifespan.

Interesting, thanks for the info. Any recommended ebay sellers with the best panel grade and no dead pixels?

It is not the panel that allows OCing it is the PCB in the monitor..

I think they are all roughly the same man.

I do wonder how HuluStar's $380 "Pixel Perfect" compares to Green-Sum's $310 "Pixel Perfect"....

I personally went with HuluStar's $317 regular version, because he had a guarantee of 0-2 dead pixels, and I figured you won't notice 2 pixels out of 3.7 million. Mine came with 1 dead pixel in the lower left corner and overclocked without problem to 120Hz.

I actually ended up getting dust or something under my LCD panel somehow when I was opening up the sub-panel/metal framing that encases the LCD screen so I have more "defects" now than what I started with. Silly me, but I'm not too worried about it as this is a secondary monitor for watching TV/movies. After this has happened, I feel like the whole dead pixel thing is not that big of an issue really. They pretty much disappear in your vision unless you are actively seeking them out, and eventually you just end up blocking them out all together. So, I wouldn't worry so much. To me backlight bleed is more annoying, but you can fix that.

I would possibly try the 'tape fix' if I were you.

Yeah it's bad in that one spot. but it's only noticeable on a black background if I look for it. What is the tape fix?
