green-sum offered me $15. I countered with $25 and they accepted. I did this via the eBay resolution process to avoid any shenanigans .

The second option is just baffling. Nevermind that "Pixel perfect" might be a scam, but to offer it, send a faulty monitor and then offer to buy the pixel perfect back?!

Oh well, we'll see.

Those people are charging A LOT for the Perfect Pixel version and this happens? They even say they test it 100% before shipping, that's probably just to see if it turns on or not, which is rubbish. I heard about the refund for the difference between the normal and the pixel perfect from another vendor, didn't know it applied accessorieswhole.. -_-

Oh god I just hope this doesn't happen to me as well..

Please keep us updated on the matter, I'm very interested to know how they're going to deal with it.

Maybe this has been addressed before.

I just got my second X-Star. Only one dead pixel.

I followed the same instructions to OC it but the option to set refresh rate to 96hz in Nvidia control panel doesn't appear. Am I doing something wrong or is it not possible to OC both monitor?

Ha! and they call that a partial refund?? I have seen some pretty banged up screens where the buyer has been offered a "partial refund". If mine arrives like some i have seen here and there i will be wanting the majority of my money back or they will be getting the monitor back and forced to refund my dough. Hopefully it doesn't come to that tho. I'm not expecting perfection, far from it, but if i get a dent in the screen or a group of like 50 pixels, they better be offering more than $15 lol.

On another note, i would like to invite/ ask you all to take the poll i started about your experiences with the korean monitors. Cheers...

Yeah, mine wasn't as bad as some; it just had some wicked back light bleed that I was able to fix by opening up the panel and bending the metal frame back into shape and applying some electrical tape. It only took me a half hour and is perfect now, so I figured $25 bucks was fair. I probably could have gotten more, but *shrug*. If it can't be fixed to look decent, sic eBay / Amazon / etc on them and send that sucker back.

Good luck! smile.gif

Not sure how well it photographs, but it's quite few pixels wide and it's just off center, so my eye catches it ALL the time. There's also another speck to the left, but it's less annoying.

Given, it's not on the outside. Tried gently rubbing, cleaning and by sellers recommendation tapping on it. Nothing. It's there.

I was prepared to open up and maybe need to fix BLB or alike, but could i get rid of this dirt without starting to go very deep into the actual layers of the screen? Not sure i'm comfortable with that.

Any suggestions? Cause this monitor is hardly useable with this very visible dark spot that annoys the living crap out of me.

Thanks in advance.

Do you have the glass version or the matte? Either way, the fix will be the same. You'll have to pop off the metal bracket of the panel which is pretty straight forward. If you have the glass, it will be taped on top of the bracket that comes off. If it's glass, wipe behind the glass. If you have matte or glossy, remove the two pieces of tape and lift the lcd to see if the dust is behind it or not. There's really not that much more risk, it lifts right up with your fingernail. I had some dust behind my glass that made it look like dead pixels. I just permanently removed my glass though because the screen was matte behind it and the glass only added glare

That's the problem. Open up Nvidia CP. Go to custom resolution, set a new res with the refresh you want as well as 32 bit color. Go back and apply it. You then should be good to go.

Just FYI, anything that looks like an irregular black spot on the screen, will be dust behind the LCD in most cases. So, opening up the panel and keeping the whole assembly vertical (so that dust doesn't start to settle) and wiping it very gently with a microfiber cloth should fix it.
