Yeah I got a modi about 2 months ago my self and the led is retarded bright. I really hate led's on electronics even though they do serve a purpose.

Essentially, by buying the PLS monitor comparing to korean IPS monitor, you take a risk at dead, bright and stuck pixels since the perfect pixel monitors does nothing, but you gain 120hz, am I right?

you are wrong because any monitor from any manufacturer has a chance of bad pixels. but you are right that the qnix can be oced

I know what you are saying, but manufacturers like dell would consider even one dead pixel to be defect where in this case, it would not be. I found one korean IPS monitor that guarantees ZERO dead pixel but nothing on the PLS can offer zero dead pixel. I would prefer not to take the risk of getting one dead pixel.

that is a big negative buddy. Dell allows a certain amount of defect also.

During LCD manufacturing process, it is not uncommon for one or more sub-pixels to become fixed in an unchanging state. A display with 1 to 5 fixed sub-pixel is considered normal and within industry standards.

that is part of the reason I never spent the 630$ on a dell UH27 or whatever the model number is.

They offer no better guarantee than the koreans.

More than anything, you lose the security of being able to rma a defective monitor. Based completely on my entirely biased experiences, these korean ips's aren't shipping with any more dead pixels as compared to a monoprice or a dell.

If I might further elaborate on dead pixel experiences, a few dead pixels does not subjectively ruin your monitor. In fact, for games and movies, they are hardly noticeable. I believe the value of dead pixels are highly over estimated. Given the choice between a solid 1080p ips 27" or a 1440p ips 27" with a few dead pixels, I'd pick the 1440p in an instant.

Right, that is a pixel that is stuck 'white' if you get ones that are stuck 'black' they allow a certain number of those. So like I said, dell does not guarantee it would be 100% perfect.

So Really the dell offers nothing better than a very nice stand, Same stand that comes on my U2312HM 1080p monitor.

Good thing you can replace the stand completely for $30 with a fully adjustable vesa wall/desk mount stand.

Then consider you can overclock to 96 hz easily and usually 110hz and some times 120hz with the qnix and it only costs ~300$ makes the dell look like a pretty bad purchase IMO.

Don't get me wrong dell makes nice monitors I love my 2312 but if I could do it again i'd have just spent $100 more and bought a second 1440p instead
