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?

Thanks for the info! Its a bit brighter but darker than I'm used to... I changed to ICM from the page before, 120hz something.

There was some bleeding on the bottom but I pressed on it and it went away.
Besides the dark setting, this thing is perfect. smile.gif

Matte is matte, glossy is glossy, semi-gloss doesn't really exist, and people just like throwing the term around as a way to differentiate from Dell and LG's super overkill terrible version of matte which has been the standard for IPS displays for the last 3 or 4 years.

As for matte vs glossy, glossy can give you slightly purer colors and sharper contrast, but it does so at the cost of increased reflections and glare.

In general, if you have the ability to completely control the lighting in your computing area, AND are willing to work in a relatively dark room with a relatively bright monitor, you will be able to enjoy the glossy screen's advantages. Otherwise, you're generally better off with matte. Seeing as most people use their computer in an area that has a window or two, it's fairly easy to see why most screens are matte.

I use my PC in a room where there is no direct sunlight but just to be safe and based on yor guys opinions I ordered the matte. I am sure I will enjoy it very much thumb.gif

No problem redface.gif
Exactly, they dont. Even if I choose desktop mode on the stock browser of my Galaxy S3. In mobile mode its even worst, the 1 page of the thread dosent scroll, it stops on the club member list you created. Thanks on the great OP and Thread, by the way.
Will try to do a proper reading on the PC in the next couple of days, while I wait for my QX2710 to arrive. I still have to learn how to OC the monitor and then use the color profiles you guys posted. Will ask for help if I dont get it, of course rolleyes.gif

Hmm dude is probably slammed now he was really responsive as early as last week. And mine was here before I even looked for tracking. I'm sure alls well but I know it's hard to wait esp w/out concrete info.

Mine from hulustar had no updates for a day after I purchased. When it was marked as shipped on eBay, I believe it had already been shipped but that the tracking info wasn't added right away. I'm horrible at this but Patience patience !

I set my refresh rate to 120hz following instructions and it does show 120hz in Nvidia settings.
However my games, when I turn on vsync, it locks on at 60hz, with my other monitor it locked at 120hz.
Did I mess up somewhere?

How come no one talks about 3D Vision with this monitor?
