Honestly it has been a bit chaotic. Firefox has been trying very hard to catch up in a lot of features that have been adapted by many other browsers. With doing this lately there is so many updates that you never know from one day to the next. On average i would say it is still a very good browser but when i do an update and things break it bothers me.

Howdy everyone,

Thought I'd register and share my experience. First off, thanks to everyone in this thread for all the great info. It's been a fantastic resource for this monitor newbie.

Gettin' to business, I ordered the QNIX QX2710 (matte) from green-sum when the price dropped to $270. Ordered on a Thursday, the monitor arrived on the US East coast the following Wednesday. Pretty damn good for overseas shipping.



Yeah, the lighting in my living room sucks. All lamplight, no overhead lighting, which is why I got the matte. Thought I noticed some graininess at first, but that seems to have been from low-quality images. (Like watching a low-res show on a high-def TV.) Don't have anything else to compare it to, but the colors are damn nice. It really shines on high-resolution photographs.



There is a cluster of what looks like 4 dead pixels in region 2 (top-center). Green-sum's policy is 5 or more in the side regions is a defect eligible for return. They bug me; I'd much pref them to be tucked in a corner region somewhere. But the truth of it is, it's hard to notice them unless I'm specifically focusing on them.

Then there's the backlight bleed.



This bothers me enough that I'm willing to try any of the home remedies out there, including opening up the case, if needed.

I haven't tried to overclock it yet. I bought it primarily for the real estate, so I won't lose sleep if it never goes past 60 fps.

I knew it was going to be a gamble, and as luck would have it, the one I received has a few more imperfections than I would have liked. If I had to do it again, I'd probably play it safe and shell out the extra cash to buy from a store with a warranty and easier return policy (e.g. ipsledmonitors). All in all, though, I feel it was worth the asking price.

Try loosening the two middle screws on the bottom.. I might help with some of the bottom bleed..

Honestly, who cares.
It's not like someone would lie about having this screen, can't think of a reason why.
Why bother checking if people actually posted pictures, or maybe you just have nothing useful to do biggrin.gif

Yes, I am indeed useless. Thank you for your observation rolleyes.gif Sorry I couldn't respond earlier to satisfy your need for attention, I was in my fluids class.
