Installed this stand today. It's phenomenal! Tilt, rotate, height and swivel. No branding on it either. I had to use my VESA wall mount kit to attach it. You can install the plate of the stand directly but I didn't like the way the metal tabs rubbed against the back of the monitor and you have to permanently remove the back plastic cover of the stand. I talked the seller down to $25 for mine.

Yes single dvi input only for more than 60Hz. Higher input lag on multi-input pcb.

I received a QNIX qx2710 and so far I'm pretty happy. I haven't found any dead or stuck pixels yet, and backlight bleed is minimal (just a tiny bit at the top). I did notice that my unit uses a PWM dimmer - somewhere around 160hz by my estimates.

One blemish that caught my eye is a bright spot near the bottom left bezel. It's definitely behind the panel; there's a parallax effect when I move my head back and forth. Maybe an LED that's brighter than the others?



I've tried to highlight it in the picture, although it's still difficult to see. Has anyone else noticed similar issues? Any remedies?

The $320 dollar one http://www.ebay.com/itm/X-Star-DP2710-LED-Matte-27-2560x1440-SAMSUNG-PLS-Panel-27inch-DVI-PC-Monitor-/130939707569?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1e7c9d60b1

And the $420 dollar pixel perfect one http://www.ebay.com/itm/X-Star-DP2710-LED-MDP-Matte-Perfect-Pixel-27-1440p-PLS-DP-HDMI-DVI-PC-Monitor-/121156200631?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c3578e8b7

I've noticed that a lot of users here seem to tend to sway others towards buying non-pixel perfect monitors. I've seen enough people here that have some nasty row of dead pixels or some other sort of weird issue that I just do not want to be a part of. You may save money, but if in the case you get something that bothers you, it's not like you can easily send it back considering they're imports.

I can say that I bought two pixel perfects from accessorieswhole and they both have 0 dead pixels and fair~low BLB. Got them in two business days.... Extremely happy with mine.

With that said, there are many people who don't get pixel perfects and have ones that don't have any issues either.

Yeah I bought of the pixel perfect one just in case...I didn't feel like arguing if it came in with lots of dead pixels

I attempted to pick up one the pixel perfect monitors from these guys
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CI3EQA2/ref=pe_385040_30332190_pe_175190_21431760_3p_M3T1_ST1_dp_1
He emailed me within 30 minutes of buying it making sure I had a good gpu etc
I asked him about the pixel perfect monitors he stated that yes for the most part of the pixel perfect ones they kinda in his own words hand pick those...lol

But like anything coming over sees they get tossed around and beat up so anything can happen if not packaged well.thumb.gif

To each their own. But as the OP and various posts throughout this thread point out, there is no difference whatsoever in the "Perfect Pixel" monitors. Odds are very good that none of the sellers with any volume open up any of the boxes and check squat. You just pay extra, and if you have any problems you will still have to argue with the seller. Your extra money buys literally nothing.

I'd also like to point out that buying on Amazon buys you nothing either; Amazon.com isn't selling these monitors - third-party sellers are. Often times the same exact third-party sellers that are selling the monitors on eBay for a hundred bucks cheaper.

But hey, it's your money, whatever makes you happy! smile.gif
