This was pretty helpful. +rep

@5~7 clicks, 1.55 gamma is best
@30 clicks (max), 1.5 gamma is best

That is with no contrast change. Looks like I should use similar profiles to you, if we're this close.

I got a glossy X-Star DVI-only a few months ago, and it's been running at 120Hz great.

I want the DisplayPort version, as much as I am a DVI+Windows guy, it'd be nice to hook up my work Mac to it. I wish I knew the DP version existed when I bought it..

But it seems like no one can buy the glossy version nowadays? Whenever I try to buy (last time from dream-seller, this time from accessorieswhole), they tell me that there's a shortage, and to try to switch me to matte. Why are their auctions still up? Other people experience this too, right?

Hi

Sorry for your inconvenience.
We have checked with the manufacturer and they are lacking of Glossy panel to produce the monitor.

Is display port a must for you?
How about below monitor?

If you pay the price difference, we can send you this one.

We're sorry for your trouble.

If you want a refund, we will refund your payment immediately.
Thank you.

This guy even tried getting me to buy a different monitor/panel, but I want the PLS one. Gotta have dat 120Hz (although I probably won't be getting it with the Mac mDP.. 120Hz with only Windows DVI will be fine)

Last time, I said I'd just wait, and it shipped in like 2 days. Not sure if the same thing will happen this time. Should I switch to matte or call his bluff? Honestly, I still want glossy, but my past 10 monitors have been matte and they were fine. I think glossy has an extra punch to it.

You could actually just get an active DL-DVI to mini-DP adapter and it will work with your Mac. The matte coating is very light on this monitor and is considered semi-glossy.

If you don't need another monitor and just want to connect your X-Star to your Mac, I suggest just getting a refund and buying an active adapter.

I went with accessories whole about 2 weeks ago, didn't buy perfect pixel as there are far to many reports of people still getting dead or stuck pixels, and a stuck pixel is better than some of the other issues you may get anyway. I ended up with 1 stuck pixel, no other issues i can see, fast delivery, good communication. I would recommend them based on my experience.
I'm back baby!!!

Hi,

I have read through some of this monster thread, and pretty much decided that I'm going to get a QNIX QX2710. My only concern is what will happen if I'm not at home when this is delivered (which I most likely won't be), since this is being shipped from Korea. I don't want it to be sent back tongue.gif I live in the UK, anyone got any idea? I have contacted dream-seller and green sum to see what they say also.

Apologies if this has been covered before, I haven't read the whole thread yet.

Thanks
