You are correct that the image quality distortion from the matte finish is much less dramatic when the coating is directly on it. But I have compared both finishes on the same monitor in person and the colors are slightly better and crisper on the glossy. This is if you are in a dark room don't have a light source compromising the glossy finish which the matte will win hands down.

Here is a pretty good vid comparison of matte vs glossy (different monitor though) He even positioned the camera to add a light source in the pic also.

That said the picture on my matte anti-gloss qx2710 is at least 10 times noticeably better and sharper looking that my old VG278H.
As said above, I came from 120hz 2ms VG278H to the qnix qx2710 that is supposedly 6ms.

Honestly I notice no difference in response times or ghosting. Some claim they do and maybe that's true but I wouldn't even start to worry about going from 5ms to 6ms.
That's great to hear. You got me so excited I had to go buy one and see for myself. smile.gif

I don't know right now but my thoughts are that they have to be being sold somewhere. It shipped to me in a legit HP box specifically made for it, so they are sold by HP as spares on the regular. Possibly all it takes is a call to HP and ask if you can order by part number. Curious how much they would sell it for...

edit: found it on HP small business website. Unavailble to purchase online... what about over the phone?

Any luck with the nausea/eye strain? I've been interested in trying out an IPS monitor again, but I last tried a glossy monitor from Micro Center, and the headaches/eye strain and nausea I got from it were way too bad to continue using it. I'm thinking it was some combination of sitting too close to the monitor, the glare from being glossy (looking to get a matte this time), and/or the PWM backlighting.

Not sure if this is directed at one person, but..

This monitor is PLS

And, as someone who used nothing but crappy Matte TN monitors for.. forever, switching to a 27" Shimian Glossy&Glass had no adverse effects on me.

Reflections could give you a headache. Also, bear in mind that IPS/PLS monitors ship far too bright, and this can cause eyestrain and headaches. If you try one you need to turn brightness down to ~35% (at least with the Korean PLS).

The monitors also use PWM backlights, so turning it down might cause headaches if you are particularly sensitive, though the vast majority of people who own one of these don't notice it even with the brightness turned down.

Just quick question guys before I buy X-STAR DP2710LED. I am using BENQ XL2420TX which is natively support 120HZ 2MS. Compare to 120HZ in this monitor do I get a same response or at least near the performance compare to my XL2420TX? Thanks appreciate that.

I would think it would not make a difference. A good amount of things I order from China seem to go to Alaska first before they come to me in California. And Korea should be the same.

South Korea to Alaska = 3,713 miles
South Korea to Los Angeles = 5,972 miles

Same gap here.
