As far as for people who want a monitor for their basements or rooms with very dim lighting should choose glossy, but I would prefer to buy something that will look great in every scenario rather then look best in one and worst in the other.

It's not the glosse that is bad for the eyes..It's the ambient lighting that you are viewing the monitor in that will cause eye strain. A matte screen will look better than a monitor without any AG? dont see the logic on that one.

go buy any <2012 dell or LG IPS23** and if you're 1/2 competent you'll immediately know what I'm talking about.

Source: I owned both the dell & the LG, and a potalion & now the qx2710 =D
I must've lost like a year off my eyes thanks to those dells.
Side note: anyone notice pwm flickering with these PLS at all? bc even at minimum brightness it flickers less than my other two monitors next to it atm (which is a good thing lol)

THIS. I used my dell 2407 for 7 yrs and couldnt figure out why i was getting such bad eye strain. Never again.

I received my QX2710 Matte today (no dead pixels thumb.gif) and changed it to 120hz.
However the color is a lot darker now. is this common or is there a fix?

Yeah it is normal; guessing a PLS thing but no one certain of that? Can be adjusted via software brightness, contrast and gamma but a better way is to calibrate at that Hz so try one of the 120hz ICCs in the OP and also on the last page (this thread iirc). The post with color graphs as well.

Hows the bleed?

I´ve never used monitor profiles before, so I am trying to educate myself before mine arrives. How do I actually know that the profile fits or is good? I don´t really get it smile.gif

That is odd.... if it's been a couple of days since you ordered I'd contact the seller and ask if there is one available. To give you an idea of the progression, my display is in Alaska now and scheduled for delivery tomorrow to the east coast. I ordered it on Saturday, received tracking info Tuesday morning, and it showed info (other than "invalid number") today and has been updating since on UPS.com.
