Good point, but fortunately that's a great thing about these types of monitors. The pixel size is small enough where these issues aren't as much of a problem. I wonder if the new era of "retina" style displays will cause resellers and manufacturers to change their dead pixel policies.

I didn't get any sort of guarantee with my QNIX that was ordered via Amazon and fulfilled by MiseMet (shipped from S. Korea) and I have zero dead or stuck pixels. BLB is somewhat evident but not enough to bother me. I probably got lucky in that regard, but I can't hit 120hz. I think I prefer 115hz stable and no dead pixels to the latter option. smile.gif

I tested with a few different background colors. Sorry if I wasn't as anal at testing them as some other people but I do have a good eye and never noticed any dead or stuck pixels. I also ran my main one at 100mhz overclock as anything above 110-111mhz would cause lines, especially after a few hours of gaming. I haven't had any time yet to try the other 2.

Anyways here's my "initiation" picture.

Yeah you better be sorry! Haha, I was just curious because the way you phrased it initially.

I would agree with both points but this monitor doesnt seem to tear as much as my 120hz samsung.

This monitor even at 110hz tears less than the really quick samsung 120hz SA950. But overall this monitor is noticeable slower and more stuttery than the 120hz Samsung. I really don't know why or what the explanation for that would be, because I always thought a quicker monitor would tear less. But I have less tearing for some reason.

But back to your point. I do think some people at 120hz do have lines and random glitches. But on another GPU I tested I did see very clear 120hz working perfectly with no glitches.

Interesting, it seems like everybody is saying that dream-seller ships really fast, but I ordered on Wednesday and they haven't shipped my monitor out yet or responded to my ebay messages... I WANT MY MONITORRRRRRRRR

Also, I read earlier in the thread that different cables have different performance? Should I go for the 24AWG monoprice cable? I read through a lot of this thread but I didn't see a clear answer

I covered this in the OP FAQ. Different cables and even different GPUs have had effects on people's overclocks. Some have better OCs with the stock cable, while most others have better with the monoprice cable. Some suggest that if you are extremely intent on getting the max OC possible, buy multiple monoprice cables.

Quake Live runs 120fps on this and it is pretty awesome clear as butter but still hard as hell LOL

The Blue Jeans Cable dvi cable I bought worked better than my monoprice. I could have just gotten a bad monoprice one but the BJC connector was better quality too. They use 24awg as well, so it's another option.
