Thanks. This is pretty cool. I know other people hate it but I prefer pixel-for-pixel representation smile.gif

So summary of my order:

- Ordered Sunday from green-sum, Qnix QX2710 - Matte - Pixel Perfect, shipping via DHL
- Asked for lower value/Gift labelling on package (need to check they did this)
- DHL text message after 48 hours requesting customs fee in advance: £28.79
- Shipping to Northern Ireland, UK
- Arrived Friday morning via white van man (not official DHL van)

- Arrived bubble wrapped, was pleased with condition, no knocks or bruises
- DID NOT INCLUDE UK power adapter for the plug (I didn't ask for one, but I understood they usually throw one in)

- Everything booted up fine, was quite a dark image until I used "QX2710 2013-04-20 D6500 1.8 HQ-MQ XYZLUT+MTX EDID-OFF 100Hz w_perceptual gamut mapping MAX-BRI" from Post#1
- Managed 120Hz, tested and seems fine but need better camera to test the blocks on the test page (no gaps, but I only get 4-5 blocks showing on this 4S camera)
- No dead pixels
- Back light bleed - http://imgur.com/7nVGp79 - this isn't noticeable in gaming or movies but I will open it up and try the tape fix at some point. Comparatively, how does this BLB seem? Good? Bad? Average?

As a general rule it's better than mine. Also, try shoving some cardboard in front or behind that spot, under the panel, before you try that tape fix, imo. It's so much easier to do and there is absolutely no risk. Took me like 15 minutes to fix blb much worse than that.

I've included 60, 96, 110, and 120Hz profiles,
QNIX Color Profiles.zip 10k .zip file

These were calibrated at 120 cd/m2, which is 11-12 clicks from the bottom on my monitor thumb.gif

Started using the 120Hz profile and it's better now. The one I was previously using had better contrast, but the over-saturation got too annoying (subtle red tones would become super red).

It does, but I don't think you can overclock them. If it's a Hackintosh build and you have a graphics card with the DL-DVI output, you should be good. If you're using it straight off a Mac, you will need to get an active DL-DVI to mini-DP adapter (typically USB powered).

The perfect pixel option is considered to be a marketing scam by some people, as there usually isn't a 0 dead pixel guarantee, but yep! that's the correct monitor thumb.gif
