Is it just me or do these displays start showing panel uniformity issues at ~120Hz near the top-right corner? My sincere apologies if this has been asked before. redface.gif

My backlight was slightly dimmer in that corner but was only noticeable by eye above 96 Hz. Light meter showed it to be 10 percent dimmer at lower frequencies but I could not tell on my own.

The back light bleed on my Qnix that I received last week was bothering me a lot and seemed to get worse after a few days. I decided to try doing the tape mod to see if that would fix the issue. Everything was actually going really smooth until I placed the panel back into the metal frame that I had applied the tape to. It's a real tight fit and you have to kinda pop it back into place where each notch is. Anyways sadly a hairline crack appeared on the screen going from where I was getting the back light bleed on 1 side of the stand over to the other....

I guess the back light bleed could've been from stress points on the frame being to tight and applying the tape was too much for it to handle. Anyways lesson learned I guess. I know others have been able to apply the tape successfully and after looking through a bunch of forums I've also heard of people cracking their panels as well.

Im very close to buying one of these qnix panels.

Does it really matter which ebay store I go through? There are several selling them for similar prices. I know the FAQ says pixel perfect isn't worth it, but has anyone here with a PP labeled panel actually get it PP?

Finally, is it safer to go through ebay/paypal, or should I go through a website like http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/default.asp ??

For the most part Back Light Bleed seems to be more of an issue than dead/stuck pixels and as far as I can tell none of the sellers guarantee no BLB or I would take a second chance at buying another 1.

Yes. Accesorieswhole guarantees 0 dead pixels. I bought two from him and got 0 dead pixels.

Rant coming.

I ordered an X-star from dream-seller on eBay on the 18th. It didn't ship until the 28th. However, when he did ship it, he used economy mail despite clearly stating "FREE EXPRESS SHIPPING" on the eBay listing. It finally arrived on the 3rd, in its stock box (no packaging or anything). The had a large hole in it, I hope to god from shipping. I open the box and can't use my monitor because there's no US power adapter. I go to the store to get one. Also there's a note in the box which says the monitor has been opened due to "testing", although someone probably just returned it. The monitor OCs to 120Hz, but has image burn, a dark spot when OCed, and 2 dead pixels (I blame dream-seller).
On the 3rd, I ordered a Qnix from accessorieswhole. Got the monitor on the 6th, and it has no problems.
dream-seller is a clown, don't order form him. I'm thinking of opening a complaint with eBay to get some of my money back because the item wasn't as described (no express shpiping) just to spite him.

End rant.

Otherwise, if anyone can help with image burn, I would appreciate it. I can live with dead pixels and a dark spot but the burn is pissing me off. It only happens when OCed and is only in the top right quadrant of the screen (where the dark spot is).

They guarantee the pixels but leave out any detail about Back Light Bleed for the Pixel Perfect option. This is from their reg option:

"Backlight Bleeding Policy for IPS Panel or PLS Panel

We cannot guarantee for no backlight bleed.
It may have some backlight bleed exist due to panel characteristics.
Even Apple Cinema Display do not guarantee and responsible for backlight bleed
and they also do not take return for that reason.
For same reasons, we also do not guarantee its backlight bleed as return matter.
However, we do inspect each monitors for its condition and do not sell any monitors with excessive backlight bleed.
In normal user circumstance it doesn't have any problem, but can be shown in dark circumstance."

Edit: Okay, I guess my request for an exchange was denied because of high demand. I can only return it for a refund.
I'm ordering a Qnix from accessorieswhole on Monday. I'll test the monitor myself and see what's up, if that helps. If you're sure that something is up with the monitor itself, then by all means return it.

Have you tried it on another PC, by the way? Also, what is the first visible black square in this test? Others, can you please compare to see what's up?
