So in fact I am very pleased with my purchase as ive already talked to the seller not Amazon but thanks for trying to point the obv I was unaware that amazon wasn't selling the monitor lolsssss

You reply seems slightly snobby and sounds like you were one of the ones that bought pixel perfect but ddint read the fine print..smile.gif

Because someone doesn't use "lolsssss" in a sentence does not make them snobby.

Actually, no, Perfect Pixel is a waste of money as described in the OP: I got my "regular" QNIXes from green-sum on eBay for $250 bucks and it's perfect after some BLB remediation and partial refund. I am glad you're are satisfied with your purchase, that's really all that matters in the end.

That said, given that this entire 751+ page thread is not about your personal buying experience, perhaps my reiterating advice from people smarter than me that have posted earlier in this thread would be helpful to others.

Good luck! smile.gif

So I'm thinking of upgrading my Samsung T240 which I've had for the last 4 years. I use it for gaming primarily, mostly BF3 and soon BF4. I've never had any issue with input lag or motion blur (which I've only heard about since reading on this forum if I'm honest so I guess I'm not affected?). I currently have a GTX 680, but when Maxwell comes around I'm hoping to upgrade.

Initially I was looking at the newer 144Hz 24" monitors as I read good things about them. Then I came across this thread and oh boy am I tempted. Since I have no experience of higher than 60Hz gaming, just having the higher resolution is very appealing, but having the potential ability to oc to 120Hz is icing on the cake. However, I hate dead pixels.

TLDR, is there an ebay seller that has a real perfect (zero dead) pixel policy, rather than the 0-2 dead pixels that most say is not worth the extra money? I'm on a tight budget and return shipping from Europe to Korea is something I'd like to avoid since it would likely cost as much as the monitor!

Also, is the X-star as good as the Qnix Evolution II? Or are they the same? Thanks for any advice!

I have a QNIX 2700 and today I purchased an X-Star 2710, glossy, from dream-seller. I hope I get one that can hit at least 96hz. If that happens, then I say it is worth it. My other has no dead pixels so if the X-Star doesn't work out, I will keep my original, sell my new one, and probably try again. I also ordered another gtx 670 4gb to help run BF4. I will have this by the end of the week, I assume, and will give an update on how mine overclocks....keeping fingers crossed.

After you set it in cru, did you go to the nvidia cp and set customize a new res?

So I took my monitor apart yesterday with three goals: replace the stand, remove the tempered glass pane and try to clean the so called clouding off my LCD. Here's an example of the clouding I was getting. It's hard to get in a picture but you can basically see these vertical stripes when you're looking at a black screen.

So after opening it up, I was able to remove the glass panel with minimal torture. I used a small flat head to pry a corner and then slid an old gift card to break the seal. Once I went around 360 degrees, the pane came right off. Then I was able to peel the double sided tape off the panel.

Once I got the panel opened up(just like in the tutorial videos) I couldn't see anything wrong. I ended up plugging everything back in and lifted the panel up while it was on so I could find out what layer was causing the stripes. After lifting the LCD layer 45 degrees, I could clearly see that the striping was in the LCD panel itself and had nothing to do with the backlighting or diffuser layers. It's hard to tell but I did get a shot of the stripes while I had the LCD layer lifted from the panel.

I tried to wipe both sides with a lint free cloth but the stripes remained. I didn't get the guts to moisten and wipe the backside because I literally had no clue what I was doing at this point lol. I have touched the front of an LCD panel but never the rear. So I'm back together now and everything is fine still, with the exception of the stripes which I barely notice and hardly care about. One more thing. Once I had it all back together, I noticed something very...odd.

Turns out, underneath that tempered glass is a matte screen! So I originally opted for the tempered glass model in hopes for glossy underneath and I should have just gotten the matte. What I don't understand is why you would ruin a perfectly good anti-gloss screen with a glass pane! If I had to guess, they discontinued the glossy panels and these tempered glass models are replacing them. All I can say is don't be fooled!

Coming from someone who prefers glossy monitors, I can easily say this is the best matte screen I have ever owned. It is coated just enough to remove the glare and that's it. I can't compare to the actual glossy model, but it sure is close to being as sharp as my last glossy monitor.

So one question I have is if anyone has ever cleaned the backside of an LCD panel and if there is anything special cleaning solution I can use, or should I just use water? I may try and open it up again in the future, but I'm in no rush until I know that I might have a chance of fixing it.

Just wondering, how long do people find it takes for image retention to take? Seconds? Minutes? Hours?

Do you mean how long before images are retained? I set mine to 96hz earlier today and browsed the web for ~15-30 minutes, and then noticed retention. I'd say it disappeared after going back to 60hz in a similar amount of time.

Is your monitor at full brightness? I've yet to see image retention on mine (120Hz) but I run it at ~10 clicks from bottom.

Don't have the monitor yet, just figuring whats normal.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding image retention. When I've experienced it (3D monitor in Lightboost mode), display something dark on white, hold still for a few seconds, and it holds the image, fading after a second or two. From what you guys are saying, it sounds like they run retention free for half an hour, then start doing it?
