The default cable it comes with does slightly better than my 28awg monoprice. Not worth switching.

I wonder if anyone experienced the complete opposite or not..

This is done by unscrewing the 2 screws per side which connect the screen to the frame. Then, the screen can be moved around while still keeping the screen connections in tact (no need to unplug anything). There will be enough movement to do one side of the monitor casing at a time.

No I meant taping the frame to try fixing bleed. But it seems what you mentioned means I can leave the panel alone while tinkering with the frame.

Yeah there is apparently a "tape fix" that helps bleed too. Cwinston please post your experiences if/when you open it. Thanks!

All right, here is my experience (no pics, sorry, I'm lazy):

Ordered from hulustar, the special event Qnix QX2710 (0-2 dead pixels) for $317 shipped.

Got here on Thursday morning, ordered late Monday night (I'm in Seattle, but it went to Cincinnati first).

No dead pixels: yay!

120Hz with no artifacts. Using the 24AWG Monoprice cable, didn't try the stock cable. All I did was create a custom resolution in nVidia Control Panel for my GTX 680. The display DID darken after I switched to 120Hz, but I used nVidia's color controls to increase my gamma and everything looks fine now. I don't have a color-meter-thing, but nothing looks oversaturated or washed out, so I'm thinking it's reasonably color-accurate. Better than my old TN anyways (which was actually a decent TN panel - Dell SP2309W).

I pulled up a black screen video on YouTube and that's where my luck failed me. There were relatively large splotches of yellow backlight leakage on the bottom of the monitor, as well as a weak splotch on the top. The very left edge of the monitor had several thin groupings of pixels that were lighter than the rest of the screen. I took off the front bezel of the monitor (careful, I'm 99% sure this will make it impossible to return the monitor for whatever reason). With the bezel off, the yellow splotches seemed to be a little less intense. What I've done since then is put the bezel back on, but kept the bottom side from clipping in. This ensures there is no pressure on the screen on the bottom side. I can live with the pixels on the left edge (not noticeable in normal usage), as well as the weak patch on top.

I was also able to decrease the intensity of the yellow on the bottom side with a method that I haven't seen mentioned before: I took a clean microfiber cloth (the car detailing type, not the phone screen type) and basically tapped on the screen. I tapped fairly hard too, enough for the display to "flash" due to the pressure. I don't know why, but this helped me eliminate concentrated backlight leakage (likely by relieving concentrated stresses in the screen). There's still some leakage, but none of that "pinching" you might see on some of the display pictures other people have posted here. I'm not entirely sure I recommend this method, all I know is that I am going to treat my display like it's made of diamond so there is no chance of those spots coming back.

Calibrations don't improve contrast. Whites and blacks can't get farther apart after you calibrate (sadly). That's something inherent in the panel type you choose.

QX2710 2013-04-28 D6500 2.2 HQ XYZLUT+MTX - 96Hz.zip 434k .zip file

This one's a winner for me, thanks!

Can you link the 286 deal? Lowest I see is 300.
post #559 of 25942
is there any risk by overclocking to 120hz?
post #560 of 25942
No specific risk that is known afaik; plenty of OC'd Catleaps still chugging along.

Well my bleed is definitely lessened by lowering brightness...perhaps that's not news to anyone and of course is the case...
