Mine is not at full brightness. I don't think brightness would affect retention anyway; the image is retained by the LCD panel whereas the brightness is controlled by the LED backlight array.

I only noticed the retention on a gray background, such as #666: http://www.color-hex.com/color/666666

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!

This is the 31st time this has been asked. Please read the OP(also search xstar vs Qnix). There is also NO seller on ebay that can and will guarantee PP as it is a SCAM(Just search scam in this thread and you will find this has been brought up possibly hundreds of times).

Is there a reason for why retention happens on some overclock panels and not others? I've been running my qnix at 120Hz for a couple of weeks now and sometimes the same page will be up for 20 minutes yet I still don't see any retention. The only thing that could possibly be helping is that I've set all the screens to stop receiving a signal after 2 minutes of inactivity which sends them into standby mode with the blinking LEDs.

Try LCD reduced, and then if that doesnt work - look for other peoples timings, Spartan F8 for example has one where the pixel clock is below 450Mhz for nvidia cards, and i have one for Radeons that is 459Mhz..and is the lowest ive seen. 450Mhz is technically the supported limit for the hardware on these panels, obviously people are going past it but to me thats technically overclocking.

Try this and see if it helps
post #7515 of 25888
Yeah no retention here using it for like 12 hours a day (running 96 hz) for over almost 2 months.
post #7516 of 25888
@Spartan F8: Doesn't accessorieswhole have a suitable Pixel Perfect policy? I discussed this with him and he said that he tests with multiple color backgrounds and guarantees 0 dead and stuck pixels.

Many people have ordered from him and received monitors with 0 dead and stuck pixels and good BLB. I only remember reading one that didn't and they refunded him the price difference / offered to replace in some way (they tried to go for the first).

So I don't see why one wouldn't order from them. If they get a PP panel, that's that, if not, they refund the price difference. And more often than not they seem to be turning out to be actually PP.

I don't understand from the sample size we have how we can determine if PP is a scam if we haven't collected statistics for each seller and made sure everyone who is looking for stuck and dead pixels is actually finding them / knows the difference. It's too messed up to know this or that.

Just wanted to share my experience with BCC on eBay.

Bought the 27" Pixel Perfect Qnix QX2710 for an accepted offer of the same price previously advertised on this very forum.

Shipped after less than 36hrs (I imagine for Pixel Perfect checks); arrived in Australia overnight and then got in the hands of Australia Post eParcel, who as per always took longer to deliver within Perth than it took to arrive from Korea!!!

Well packaged as per other reports.

Screen had been opened and tested but still had all stickers and protective film, etc.

NOT ONE DEAD OR STUCK PIXEL!
MINIMAL LIGHT BLEED!
Honestly, very hard to spot, must be looking for it!

Immediately overclocked via nVidia Control Panel to 96Hz for Win 7 office installation, 120Hz for the gaming installation.

No humming, no heat from power pack, the twin GTX560i's in SLi are running no hotter than before upgrade.

Overall a great experience with a valued eBay seller, he deserves the business from anyone here interested in one of these babies.

Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated to BCC, but I did promise good review if he accepted my offer, and provided a perfect monitor, which he did.

So I owed him that much (Martin is the General Manager's name).

Thanks for all the info, help, guidance and profiles people have shared here, forums are the best place to find the right stuff.

Cheers and beers for all!

Does this: 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

supports 120 Hz over DVI port? (I can't get if it's DL or not)

Could 1440p@120Hz be streamed over Display Port?

No. Only the monitors with only DL-DVI support overclocking.
