post #4981 of 25891
Does the eraser method work to fix stuck pixels? I remember on my old Hanns-G, I had a few pixels stuck red, and massaging the area with a pencil eraser would make them go away. They came back from time to time, but it always worked to fix them.

I'm kind of anal retentive about stuff like that. I'm thinking I'll pay the extra for pixel perfect when I actually order one. I'll have to sell my current monitor first, though.
In progress.

Had to do some digging. The file name asus_pb278q.icc when loaded into color management in windows is named "Asus PB278Q v3.icc" so look for that one (I verified it is on tftcentral just now).
i will update the OP

Can it help if I put the UDpixel program on and running it for 6-8 hours straight each day? Would that help to unstuck these pixels? So far 4 hours and no luck.

You appear to be on OSX and there are some good profiles already build in that I found work well.

I ordered a Qnix 2710 from green-sum on ebay last week Wednesday morning pacific time and it arrived on Monday. I bet if I ordered on Tuesday it would have been here on Friday the same week. I ordered the matt perfect pixel version. It does seem like perfect. I tested and saw no dead pixel. What is even better is that I can overclock it to 120Hz first try, using the DVI cable that the monitor came with no less. I am running a Galaxy GTX 670 with 4GB memory. I haven't had a chance to check for BLB though.

The monitor is super bright. I figured out that you have to *hold* down the brightness buttons to adjust up and down. Just pressing and releasing the button doesn't nothing.

I have to decide if I want to keep it at 120Hz all the time, even when I am not gaming. And read up on how to remove the "Test mode" text from the lower right corner.

Thank you to people on this thread for all the helpful information. I almost paid $600 for a Yamakasi 2B LCD tongue.gif

I did some more digging for wallpapers. I also cleaned up some of the pics in my previous link because I decided they didn't "pop" as well as the others on the monitor.

I give you 87 wallpapers that really show off what this monitor can do.

As before I suggest setting up a background rotation for 30 seconds with all pictures in the folder. WARNING you will get lost staring at your desktop for hours! biggrin.gif

I replaced my collection with these. Uh-ma-zingg. I think I'll lose some productivity over staring at these but they're a joy to look at. wink.gif Thanks for your hard work in collecting these gems and to the OP for listing the sites!! biggrin.gif It feels awesome to be transported to a different location every 30 seconds smile.gif

I found a firm press that lasts for a fraction of a second would allow to use the buttons to increase/decrease brightness by a single step. Hold the monitor as you do this otherwise the bezel moves and it's hard to do - and increasing brightness this way is easier than decreasing.
