If it isn't making any difference, then maybe stop and try some other idea.
Really? With your fingers?

I tried it and it doesn't seem to affect anything. blushsmiley.gif

Yup. If you have a lot of pressure on the screen from bezel or something, then maybe it won't do squat, but I was really surprised last night to see how much I can make it happen/disappear with just pressure.

Can anyone try and help me with the color profiles? I've downloaded and installed the profiles, then gone into color management to apply it but nothing seems to change when I do, or atleast I can't see it. I've tried a lot of profiles too and still can't notice a difference.

Here's what my color management screen looks like, running Windows 8:

Are you applying that color profile to your Catleap?? If so, looks like you've done it right as it states "default" by the color profile. What I usually do is also add some other random profile from the list that pops up when you click add, that way you can select one, click "Set as Default Profile" and compare to when you do the same for the second profile. You should see your screen change as you toggle between them. If you have a Catleap and a Qnix, you need to select the Qnix one from the top dropdown menu.

I just set up Triple QNIX Q2710s. A bit of a pain in the ass, but I got everything done with DL-DVI adapters smile.gif!!!

Oh, and it's entirely possible that me completely dismantling my LCD panel assembly and re-assembling it has something to do with the ease with which I can modify it with my finger. Maybe panels are meant to "settle" over time and eventually all the component layers become fairly fixed in place. If that's the case then people with bad backlight bleed got monitors with the various layers of their panel with some gap variations that introduce this bleed. I can make yellow bleed appear and disappear at the bottom of my screen with just my finger edge swiping across it.

That's insane! How are they mounted? Man, 4320x2560 is quite the resolution smile.gif

I'm really really interested if you can tell the difference between them with the same calibration. Load up some reference photo on all three and use your keenest eyes to try to see how close 3 different monitors are in color representation. My bet is that they're different somewhat.

I feel like there is a touch more pixel persistence on the QNIX @ 120Hz vs my Yamakasi 2B @ 120Hz.

Also my QNIX had a really bad red tint, but otherwise looks flawless. I can correct it using a monitor profile (eyeballing it), but then my mouse cursor doesn't have the profile applied to it unless I enable mouse trails (ICK!).

After the eyeball calibration (probably very off), my 2B looks quite yellow rolleyes.gif

It's mounted with an Ergotech Triple Horizontal LCD Monitor Arm Desk Stand.
http://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Horizontal-Monitor-100-D16-B03/dp/B001NPEC5A/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1366759544&sr=1-3&keywords=Ergotron+Triple+Display+Stand

At the moment, I don't have time to calibrate it, but I will do it in a few days and post results. Having all three is a bit too bright for me, so I turned down the brightness to pretty low levels and it may appear in the picture as they are uneven. The only monitor that has a bit of backlight bleed is the middle one when viewing dark areas. It's freaking crazy how almost none of them have any visible dead pixels except for the one with the exception of one!! All these were purchased from ExcellentCastle so I highly commend him for doing such a great job. biggrin.gif
Also, I followed your debezeling guide and I took off the stand for one of them. It's an extremely useful guide! thumb.gif
