Could be the cable, just don't spend too much. I thought the included cables seemed to be quite nice, but didn't actually try them. I'm using a 15' DVI-D cable from monoprice that was dirt cheap and it's working great for me.

Yeah, Im gonna hit up frys electronics, they seem to have good prices.

The included cable looks good to me, I just figure its worth trying and if not, I will return it.

Yeah don't let a potentially underpowered GPU hold you back. Get the display now while you can and upgrade GPU later as needed. Hell, 7950s can be found >$200. 6850 Crossfire isn't bad either. I liked mine but began to run into VRAM bottlenecks with only 1GB (and that was at 1200P).

Looks like I chose the worst week to get this as nothing will ship until the 23rd :/

There are tight stock issues in general of late.

Gonna mostly be playing LoL as far as games go, but I mostly need this for the screen space.

For League, you will be okay. I use a 7950 for Portrait Eyefinity (3240x1920 => 3500x1920 with bezel compensation) and League barely took up any VRAM and had low GPU usage.

For other games like Tomb Raider, Crysis, BF3, your GPU and VRAM aren't good enough. Tomb Raider actually uses the full 3GB of my 7950.

I am just thinking the longest I wait the more expensive they are going to get or maybe we will start getting crappier ones LOL
I found a user selling one used so maybe I will just go with that one. From USA, no dead pixels...safer bet. thumb.gif

*I'm also considering a square trade insurance policy, I confirmed that they will cover both of these sellers. They do not ask for a serial number, so I suppose one plan could cover multiple monitors.

SquareTrade does, in fact, require a serial number to finalize your warranty. I know because I have one on my monitor. In theory you could delay filing the Serial Number until later, but they DO ask for one.

Just received my second monitor today. I ordered a pixel perfect glossy X-Star DP2710 from Amazon. Ordered last Wednesday and it showed up this afternoon. It had the exact same black light bleed problem that my Qnix did. I performed the exact same fix, but it seems that there is still BLB on the bottom. I'll have to take the panel out to fix this one, I'm afraid. The really odd part is that I ordered a Pixel Perfect model and there is a stuck green pixel near the center and bottom of the screen off to the right hand side. Very weird they wold sell this as pixel perfect. The pixel showed itself as soon as I turned it on. They need better quality control imo.

However, I can't be mad because there is no discoloration on the monitor at all. I tried an all white screen and it's very uniform across the entire monitor, so that's a plus.

Just wanted to post my results. I'll post some pictures after I set up a dual display with VESA mounts. Right now they are still in their cases and I don't have them VESA mounted. Time to buy some JB Weld black spray paint!

What is the PP policy. Some are like 2 pixels are still within the PP policies for example do it depends.
