Most can oc to 96 without much issue, and a large sample size can oc to 120. They aren't without issues though.

The most common and unavoidable issue @ 120hz is that it lowers your gamma and kind of makes your colors less accurate (Darker and less vibrant picture). Other common issue is that it causes image retention.

I don't believe there's much of any issue with 96hz. I believe it also lowers gamma to some extent but it's barely noticeable if that. Most consider it a sweet spot.

Yeah I am considering ordering one from green-sum..... he has one tagged with *pixel perfect* for 349, not tagged with pixel perfect for 339

The listing for the pixel perfect one still mentions up to 5 dead pixels.

Do these PLS panels usually come with pixel issues or is the success rate pretty good?

I got a crossover 27qw ah-ips that I paid the extra for perfect pixel and it has a dead pixel already 20 or so days later... I'm in the process of returning it.

Im guessing these come with a dvi-d wire and a plug adapter in the box?

That is who I got the ah ips one from....

It came with no dead pixels but developed one 20 or so days later....

He offered to refund my pixel perfect fee + $10 which was nice of him but I don't want a monitor with pixel issues.

I'm currently waiting a response on whether he'd prefer if I just get a refund or like to do an exchange.

If he does an exchange I'll probably ask for a qnix since they are about the same price.

That's rather unfortunate, but to be fair he wouldn't have known it would develop that issue 20 days later.

I don't blame him. I just paid $100 extra to not have to deal with any pixel issues. So it isn't on the customer to keep the item if it isn't what they paid for after only 20 days.

Alright guys, as I said before I have already ordered my QNIX QX2710 Matte Perfect Pixel for $399. I've noticed that the response time differs from a seller to another. I've seen some who say the QX 2710 has a response time of 6ms (The one I ordered from accessorieswhole said that) and others say it has a response time of 8ms. I'm almost certain the QX2710 is 6ms, so why are they different? Are there more than one version of the QX2710 model?

Update on my monitor with dirt/dust stains from accessorieswhole.

They replied:
Quote:
"Hi Thanks for your response. The price difference between perfect pixel monitor and non-perfect pixel monitor is US $60. We can refund more US $40 as a compensation. So we can refund US $100. Hope you will consider it. If you still decide to return the monitor, we normally refund the payment after receiving the monitor. We do not send a replacement. Hope for your understanding. We will wait for your response

So they refuse to replace it? Strange.

While waiting for the above reply i opened the monitor to see if i could clean it. Sadly, once i got down to the actual panel and opened it turned out to be more than dirt. No idea what, but i couldn't get the speck off by gently cleaning it with some cotton dipped in isopropylacohol.
I put it back together and it turned out it actually wasn't in vain. The stain is still there, but ALOT smaller. If i don't actively search for it i can't find it. I bet it'll still annoy me from time to time, but overall i can live with it in its current state.

This leads me to the conclussion that I'd rather live with this tiny flaw, rather than the hassle of sending back, ordering from someone else and praying the same thing doesn't happen. So i'll take the $100 refund and get a still very nice monitor for cheaper than i expected (and it was cheap to begin with).

Big thanks for all the discussions, pictures, how-to's etc of how to dismantle the monitor. Couldn't have done it without you!

Does anyone have a minor problem with these monitors where the colour profile resets to the default windows one every now and then when you boot up? I have an xstar at 110hz.

Its a small inconvienience as the colours are way off with the default profile, which the one I use fixes, but its annoying to have to change it to the profile every boot up.
