Please read over the OP FAQ section for a lot of your answers. Also search the thread for "burn in" and you will find a ton of info and repeat info and repeat info and repeat info on this subject. Also in terms of life span, no-one overclocking has reported early failure yet other than some very far and few in between odd bail reports (not enough to warrant attention/worry).

Sorry, my bad. There's a ton of good info in the OP that just blew past. Thanks for the info on OC effecting lifespan thumb.gif

You certainly are not the first (understatement of the thread); people just don't even think of it for some reason so at least you looked at it to start. Yes this is not real "burn-in" in the traditional sense and most don't get it all.

Alright, finally got my monitor today. UPS Korea changed the value and sorted it out with US UPS.

So far so good with this monitor. Just tested to see if I have any dead/stuck pixels and I'm 100% pixel perfect. The only problem is the back-light bleed on the top, bottom and right side.

Have you tried loosening the bottom middle screws to see if it helps with the bottom BLB?

Thanks, I just tried that and it worked great. The bottom BLB is gone now, but there is still the top and right side BLB.

While the resolution is terrible I believe the response time is 6.5ms, compared to the 2ms on my previous monitor. It feels freaking horrible. I can really feel how delayed it is. The qx2710 is 6ms.

So while everyone on the 120hz to isp argument says "just overclock it and have the best of both" is false. I guess I knew this going in but I just wanted to note how profound it is on this tv. I have played exclusively on the 120hz monitor for over a year so that might be why the difference seems so strong.

I am basing all of this off a tv that could somehow have a longer response time. Only time will tell now. Even so it is starting to make me doubt selling my vg278h.
What delay are you talking about?Input lag?

Response times are just a number the manufacture makes up pretty much..Just like there 4 billion to 1 contrast ratio numbers..The viewsonic VP2770 is rated at 12ms and its pixel response is faster the ASUS PB278Q 5ms response time..

What are you seeing on TV more motion blur or input lag?

Yea. It's kind of unfair that I am making this judgement off this monitor though. I'll see if I still feel the same way with the qnix.
