I am leaning towards glossy over matte, any reason I would regret it? Polls say most people get matte.

Down to these two:

Green-sum has that common pixel diagram which is clear.
Accessories whole says 3 pixels maximum, anyone with experience can clarify what that means? Both look like they have good return policies?

Green-Sums diagram means 1 dead pixel in section 5 (center) is considered a defect, up to 5 dead pixels in any other region does not constitute a defect and cannot be returned or replaced by the seller.

That's why a lot of people when with pixel perfect, ~$50 more and you can return it if you have any dead pixels. Although, I'm not sure if you have to pay for shipping back to korea which is probably expensive.

edit: Both say buyer pays return shipping.

Yeah, green-sum one makes sense. Not understanding the 3 pixel limit of accessorieswhole.

For anyone interested i have found pushing the total pixels and lines as low as possible helped quite a bit and did reduce uniformity issues. You kinda just keep lowering it 10 at a time for pixels and 1 at a time for the lines until you reach the lowest point(meaing the screen doesn't come back or comes back with lines and what not). After doing this my overall pixel clock for 1440p@120hz was only 443MHz. Getting the pixel clock as low as possible without rendering issues seemed to be what allowed me to go further in terms of refresh.

Good find and yeah I think someone else mentioned something similar before; maybe was you.

Sucks that all the good and helpful to all info like that gets essentially lost in the pages and pages of new people asking the same basic questions over and over that are covered in the OP (not to mention probably a max of 5 pages back too by some other FNG). This is a main reason they are so long too; it's a self-perpetuating problem.

Could we start a korean ips/pls wiki or something?

The heat is due to the card working slightly hard to keep up with the higher refresh rate - it doesn't downclock as far when idle. I have that same problem with my GTX 680, but then again, I have a complicated 3-monitor setup with hack drivers and mixed refresh rates...

That would make sense, i understand higher temps when running card at load, but my main concern is idle temps as it was running significantly hotter. Ill have to check what it downclocks too. I guess I'll just run my monitor overclocked only whilst gaming because a loud 7970 reference isn't very pleasant at idle!

Or people can read the op, the work is already put into it and information present. Reading is not dangerous yet people avoid it

Received my monitor yesterday from green-sum. I bought the perfect pixel edition for $310. I found one dead/dark pixel on the left side but its not a big deal because I don't notice it unless i try to find it. The main concern I have is my severe backlight bleeding. The one I received seems to have pretty bad BLB, I tried loosing the screws on every corner and the middle it seemed to help a little bit and made it not as bad but here are some pics of it after i loosened the screws. I sent out an email to green-sum to request for a replacement, I hope it goes smoothly. will keep you guys updated.

Yeah it is.. haha. Well I only bought the perfect pixel edition because I didn't want any bright pixels on my screen and wanted that guarantee for $20 more. I was expecting a little BLB but this is way too much imo. Hopefully all goes well, will definitely keep you guys updated.
