But, checked out the backlight bleed and want your opinions: pics (Click to show)



Can this be fixed with the tape mod? The stuck pixels barely bother me, only an obvious green one, so is it worth exchanging? I did add the 3 year SquareTrade. Did I get a B+ panel? My onboard buttons don't seem to work either. One of them shuts off my screen but the rest just makes the blue led flash a couple times.

Assuming that the BLB pictures were taken correctly (refer to OP for guide on how to take accurate pics of BLB), the BLB you have seems small. Not worthy of a return.

The bottom center BLB might be fixed by removing the 2 center-most screws on the back of the monitor casing.

The cable to the buttons might be loose or unplugged or messed up. If willing, try and open up the monitor casing and check. Refer to OP for many guides on how to open up the monitor

I removed the two center screws underneath the VESA mounting holes, but the lightbleed is there, I can't remove the casing 'till tomorrow. Still fixable? Looks like I misunderstood the OSD buttons, they work but don't actually have an "on screen display"

This is the first time, I've bought a Korean monitor so I'm not sure what to expect. In your opinion, with 7 stuck pixels, is it worth it? or should I take a gamble for another one?

To people who have bought this monitor, what is the HS code that is associated with it during shipping? My country has a ridiculous 30% tax on certain codes relating to Televisions which worries me.

Alright, so I now have my monitor!

 

The good news:

 

With the stock cable I got 130Hz overclock, no faulty pixels that I can see, I think minor BLB? Not bad enough that I care. My other 27in has worse.

 

The bad news: The bezel isn't on right. Right where the logo is, it sticks out and this: http://i.imgur.com/iBMSQDD.jpg You can see a quarter circle on the bottom left corner of the screen and something similar but flatter above it. Also, this mofo is wobbly as hell. I thought people were exaggerating... Will most likely buy a VESA or that HP mount now.

 

Here's the monitor all black, you can see the minor BLB: http://i.imgur.com/AbyC4Ja.jpg

You BLB look great..Thats how mine is as i was lucky..But that thing in the corner looks like you got a bent frame where the middle is pulled out and that side is pushed in creating that pressure in the corner?

Not sure. I might open it up this weekend.

 

Also, does it matter that I just made a custom resolution in my Nvidia control panel and overclocked it that way? I know it's working. Windows are much smoother when I drag them around.

Here is what it looks like with DotA 2 @ 1080p resolution. I always play it in borderless mode and it stayed in 1920x1080 res. So here's an idea of how much more you get desktop wise:

Hi guys, I'm so close to buying the X-STAR dp2710 MDP version (the one with multiple display and an actual OSD) and I just want to ask for advice.

Been doing research and I'm not quite sure it's worth $60-65 more than the one with just the bypass panel. I've searched this thread and couldn't find anyone who has bought one. From what I can tell, the MDP version has several attributes:

PROS:
BIOS compatibility
Support for HDMI/DVI-D/DP/D-SUB (I plan on connecting my laptop and ps3 as well)
An actual on-screen display w/ color/brightness calibration

CONS:
Slightly slower response time (8ms vs 6ms)
Price - $355 vs $290
unconfirmed overclockability

To me, it sounds like they slapped on a $20 AD-Board and enticing you to pay a premium; or am I crazy?

Also, I'm scared about their return policies and warranties (green-sum/accessorieswhole/dream-seller) as I've heard they make you pay for any type of return shipping and don't guarantee a refund or replacement for a product that arrives damaged or of very low quality. Anyone have pleasant stories of warranty fulfillment?

Thanks for the help!

i was interested in buying those, but no one has confirmed the actual response time or input lag of those guys.

But make sure to read the pixel warranty stuff on each seller's page carefully. For example, accessorieswhole has a 3 stuck pixel policy for their $289 version of the Qnix while they have their perfect pixel policy for the same Qnix at $349.

I bought the cheaper one from accessorieswhole and got a panel with seven, that's right 7 stuck pixels, which seems to be rare among others in this thread. I opened a case, I'll let you know what happens. From searching this thread, it looks like the more recent people are satisfied with green-sum and weary of dream-seller because he's selling panels that are rated B+ or less which means they have more problems or whatever. Though, dream-seller seems to be promising no stuck pixels for cheaper prices now, so best bet is to contact him.
