Well, I found the problem with my lightbleed. I took the casing off and immediately noticed this:





Time to straighten her out.

Is that the frame, panel, or both that are bent?

Looks like the panel chassis and frame. 2 of my 3 where this way when I tore them apart. Little bit of finesse and you can straighten it out. The two of mine that were tweaked now have no BLB but do have like an odd lighter stripe when a solid black screen is shown.

the 3rd was flat and still has BLB.

Is the tape mod still a thing or do people just straighten out the frame?

Do you have any tips on safely straightening the panel? I have the panel completely out, but I am unsure what to do at this point beyond putting it face down on a flat surface and putting something heavy and padded on it.

Makes me wonder how they managed to put that frame on without snapping the screen. I didn't realize lcd screens were flexible. I mean, that is terrible bending considering its blatantly obvious in a small picture.

I got my ColorMunki Display today and it made my monitor look much better at 120Hz. The only negative thing about it is that the colors look ever so slightly washed out. I calibrated with the brightness at 22 clicks from the lowest setting, monitor tilted back, and at night with the lights off. Also, does anyone know how many brightness clicks the QNIX QX2710 can actually do?

Here's my .icc profilefor 120Hz: http://www.mediafire.com/?1kdh8hztdk49te9
(I'll be adding profiles for 96Hz and 60Hz when I get the time)

Just got my X-star from Dreamseller, paid the extra $10 for "perfect pixel" guarantee.

I'm pleased to report that this panel is indeed perfect. Almost no BLB and no dead pixels. I tried and returned 9 -- yes, nine -- brand name displays (U2713HM, PB278Q, VP2770), all of which had at least one pixel defect and more bleed than this X-star.

Needless to say I'm very pleased. Now I just have to work up the courage to get the awful stand off this thing.

Put some light weights on the corner to push it down, with something wedged under the where the bend starts. I'm now waiting and sweating, worrying if anything will go wrong. If anyone has a better method, let me know.

Why are you doing this?
