Which seller would you use then? And should I what do you mean by 3 year square trade warranty?

I'd probably go with green-sum.

For the warranty, if you want it, it's probably not necessary - I just did it for peace of mind. http://www.squaretrade.com/tv-warranty - select the drop down for the price range of the monitor and it's pretty self-explanatory.

Um...like what?

Nothing more than any other monitor that you can buy.

Occasional dead pixel, small amount of backlight bleed...some people don't get any dead pixels or bleed...

I thought it was the matte ones that had the 'additional material'? headscratch.gif

Wish there was a way I could see a glossy one up close....oh well, gotta order that overlord pcb =)

As far as glossy goes it'll be very similar to an apple ipad/iphone.

I personally find this whole "image quality" thing slightly overdone - I went from a 6 bit+FRC TN panel to 8 bit PLS and I don't see a massive difference.

If you really want the "pop" just turn image brightness to max - but now that I've used the lower setting I find it much easier on the eyes and the colours feel more natural.


With the new semi-matte coatings I don't think there is much difference anymore. WIth the older aggressive AG it's a different matter, but here it isn't. The quality you speak of is more to do with the amount of detail rendered - with matte you will see just as much detail, and have no reflections getting in the way. If you have even a few reflections now, matte will get you more out of your graphics cards than glossy.

Here's the thing: I don't feel IQ has improved dramatically. In a side by side test between an IPS/PLS and good TN panel I might be able to see the difference - but apart I don't think it's really that noticeable.

The main improvements are resolution (1080p seems small now) and the PLS viewing angles - at this size you'd get colour shift near the edges if the panel were TN (I think).
My old panel was glossy, so this semi-matte coating is really nice.

These improvements are worth every penny. I love my X-Star and I would encourage anyone else sitting on the fence to by one.

I finally figured it out !!!

I spent a long time on this so I hope this helps someone else with Nvidia that doesn't want to use test mode.

I really had a hard time getting games to detect resolution. Some games would work some would not. I figured out some games look to windows resolutions via a CRU method, but while some other games can see custom resolutions in nvidia control panel. As many of you know already you can OC these monitors with EVGA precision software without test mode enabled. What I found is precision unlocks the pixel clock on the driver side without test mode. However the problem is some games won't use a resolution from nvidia control panel. But if you use CRU the resolutions won't work unless you patch driver and use test mode.

So the solution is simple. You just have to create the same resolution in both nvidia control panel (created and unlocked with precision) and with CRU with the exact same values to the tee.

Soon as I made the resolutions with same exact timings using the values from Nvidia control panel (setting it to manual timings in Nvidia Control Panel) and coping them all over manually to CRU number by number. Closed CRU then restarted. Magically the games that could not detect resolution before now do.

(note some of you might now really have issues with games you play but I found a small few games that wouldn't work without test mode and CRU enabled, but now with this fix it solves those issues without test mode)
