if you read the first page of the forum there is a pretty good run-down of Pixel-Perfect. There is also a feedback chart and you can compare sellers as well. Good luck.

Beat me by 6 seconds LOL

"Poor Man's Cinema Display Clone Mod"

Steps:

1) Removed the front bezel and stand.

2) 3 Base coats of plasti-dip rubberized coating (BLACK) ($7 at local hardware store).

3) Let base coast dry for 3 hours.

4) 4 Finish coats of plasti-dip pearlizer (https://www.dipyourcar.com/product.php?productid=62&cat=31&page=1). This pearlizer is what changes the monitor from black to brushed aluminum. The pearl gives the finish its "sheen" or slight luster, instead of just a flat gray.

5) Let it cure at least 4 hours.





That's cool! It looks nice, but I don't want to make my bezel as glossy and reflective as my screen rolleyes.gif But great job nonetheless thumb.gif

If it's not right in the center, you'll get used to it. You'll know that it is there, but eventually you'll stop caring and stop seeing it altogether unless you are on a white screen and are looking in the area of it.

Thanks apav. its more of a brushed aluminum finish, so it doesn't put out that chrome reflective look. It's closer to being a flat finish with a slight amount of sheen.

would you mind elaborating the bit "may be useful if bought with squaretrade warranty"?

It's up to you... I had a good experience with dream-seller. Again you can find out these details outlined in the first page when it comes to buying, seller reputaton, pixel-perfect vs regular. All the research is already done for you, all you have to do is read the documentation that's been put together.

Hi all,

Could anyone tell me if Qnix QX2710 can be used on Windows XP Pro? I have dual boot. I need Windows XP Pro for old hardware. My graphic card is EVGA GTX 690.

Thank you.

How did you connect the display to your macbook ?
