overclockmonitor registered their domain a month ago, you're likely their first customer...

at any rate, it appears to be a korean ebay sellers site, just like http://www.2560x1440monitor.com/. If you buy from a korean seller on ebay you at least have ebay buyer protection to file a claim, which many have resorted to. If you buy from an outside website, you pretty much have no ability to file a claim. I would at least go with a site that has a store address/phone number.

Does anyone else find it strange that green-sum only delivers to the UK on his *free express* shipped monitor? His PP one and normal shipping one doesnt post to UK...

I recently purchased the x-star from dream-seller. When it arrived it had bad back light bleed and one dead pixel. It overclocked to 110 hz before getting some bits of artifacts or distortion when it laced. I reduced it to 100 hz and it has been an excellent monitor since. The two discrepancies have not bothered me until last night when I noticed another issue.

I went from a excel spreadsheet to windows 8 start menu, which is a solid color (green for me) and apps with blank space around the apps for those who don't know, and noticed in the top right of the screen the excel screen image burned into the screen kind of like a plasma would, except with detail.... Now this on top of the other two issues, and the rather LONG shipping time it took to get to me (2 1/2 weeks), is really bothering me. Is this normal amoung the panel?

Anyone have the same issue? Can it be fixed?

TL;DR My x-star panel is burning images and wonder *** is up.

It depends on the seller.

Anyone able to say anything about the backlight uniformity of the X-Star? Like, can you see where its lighter and darker when you move dark windows around, and such.

Ive read a few pages in this thread and noticed people saying the tempered glass one arrived after supposedly ordering glossy one IIRC.
