It's all personal preference when it comes to brightness and gaming unless doing photo work then the recommended brightness is 120 cd/m2. Like i said i generally wouldn't go below 180 or above 250 cd/m2 based on the display i'm using. This is based on about 15 monitors/ tv's i have calibrated in the last 6 to 12 months.

On the ips / pls factor, i don't get how people continually call pls the same as ips, they are very different. IPS is bright, very bright, while pls is slightly over saturated with darker blacks. They are actually complete opposites of each other in many ways. Again it's personal preference to what each individual likes better, but to call them the same is misleading and completely false.

Well my main reason for the Monitor is for photo editing plus I am a Home Theater guy as well so I do not like over bright images so 120 works great for me. In fact it is 9 to 10 clicks from lowest brightness for me which was exactly what I was using before I got the x-rite to test it smile.gif

I only plan to use it for gaming for games that just wont work with 3D vision but even my quick tests of Metro and Crysis 3 looked great so guess is all a matter of preferences. thumb.gif

Yeah, I have profiles calibrated for each Hz setting as it will look too dark if you leave the same settings plus the difference in smoothness should be very obvious.
I can post my calibrated ICS files here but of course it varies so is not going to be perfect for everyone.

hmm i dont think a icc profile will resolve flickering. I think that the panels limit beuase mine will 110-115hz but not 120hz as it will flicker but 110hz is great for me since i only use a single gpu setup vs sli.
and cannot reach such frames anyways.
Also unless you can achieve solid fps i saw basical no diffrence from 90hz to 110hz but im sure its there just not noticeable to me. thumb.gif but anything past 60hz defiantly makes a diffrence. So dont get bummed if yours cant achieve over 100hz

Forgive me as I have not read this whole thread, but will these panels run @ 96 hertz out of the box? Can I get some feedback on how nice/noticeable this is? I feel like I have been stuck on 60 hertz forever frown.gif

Yep most will do 90hz+ prety easily mine will do 110hz with CRU no custom resolution needed just straight overclock thumb.gifthumb.gif

And yes after using a pb278q 2560x1440 60hz i can defiantly tell a diffrence...alot better for fps shooters thumb.gif

Mine is in transit. Looks like it won't be delivered until Monday. I was hoping to be able to play with it this weekend. My goal is to hit 96hz. Anything over that will be icing on the cake. Waiting for cool stuff sucks.

Was on over clockmonitors.com and sent an email about their pixel policy. I had the qx2710 from their daily deals and $10 off at 319 in my cart. I watched it jump to 339 during yesterday evening. Sure takes a while to respond. Does anyone know what their definition of pixel perfect is?

This is from many emails I exchanged with them. They were very quick to reply at all times but remember the time zones.

Regarding perfect pixel policy, we will update it on our website. Anyway, perfect pixel monitors allows 0 dead pixel. Under the manufacturer's policy, only bright dots are considered as dead pixel, but since we test every single monitor. And we try our best to send 'literally no dead pixel' monitors.

Still better to get that from them again in case things have changed that way you have it on writing. But it looks like the normal PP policy to me.
