Check out the first page of the thread and make your decision based on that. Honestly, with the exception of a few sellers who have bad reputations, for the most part you are going to have the same chances with whoever you go through. I have not heard of a bad experience with green-sum (who I bought from) or dreamseller, but each buyer is going to have a different experience. Matte really is the clear choice, it can be used with glare or without, it does not hold finger prints as easily as glossy, and I personally think it looks about the same in quality. The matte finish on the QX2710 is not particularly aggressive though, honestly its up the the user and what you like. The last few pages of the thread have led me to believe that most of the sellers on Ebay are currently out of stock of pixel perfect glossy screens, meaning your glossy screen will almost definitely have dead pixels. Either way, its a beautiful screen and a savvy buy, you wont be disappointed.

Thanks!

So I should basically just buy the cheapest matte from a big seller like green-sum or dream-seller? By the looks of it, it doesn't matter if I go with x-star or qnix, right? Just wondering, because in the FAQ the majority of people purchased qnix.

Not to add more confusion to the mix but i had a matte asus pb278q 1440p monitor and didn't like the matte at all. Got the glossy tempered glass qnix and it is awesome. The popular choice for recommendations on the internet for gamers does indeed seem to be matte but that is because of glare primarily, purely for image quality the nod goes to glossy and tempered glass, more vibrant colors etc. not just my opinion. So if glare won't be a issue for you go for glossy and tempered glass, if glare is a issue then go matte. I personally won't ever be going matte again.

Oh and accessorieswhole seems to be a pretty safe bet atm. Don't go pixel perfect either, still might get dead pixels or worse issues.

+1 for gloss. Most people I know who are against glossy screens are professional graphic designers or photo editors. Apparently, glossy displays don't display true, accurate colors. Makes sense, hence the "more vibrant colors and contrast" you get off glossy displays.

anyone want to clarify the whole dvi port issue? I just recently found out that there's more than one type of DVI connection. My graphics card(gtx 470) has a DVI jack that is not compatible with DVI cable that these monitors come with. Should I worry? Or is it as easy as buying an adapter?

well, there are(in our cases)
DVI-D (digital only, single link or dual link)
DVI-I (integrated, combines digital and analog in the same connector; digital may be single or dual link)

either of them will work if they are DUAL LINK, not dual link, not going to work (no adaptors)




according to this, your card is supposed to have it :



I am going to +1 for MATTE screens, any sort of back-lighting behind you, makes most glossy screens worthless IMO.

did you just follow the video linked on page 1? I dont quite understand how and on what part you are supposed to apply the tape. Could you clarify since you managed to do it? Thanks!

The wife has given me the full go ahead to get one now I am deciding which one to go for. Kinda pumped about it, it should be so much nicer than my samsung 27" 1080p.

Dream seller on ebay has the X-star for 279 shipped right now, I was really looking for the Qnix but I understand they are the same...wow $279 is so cheap.

hey guys,

I am gonna upload a couple images. Can you help me judge if it's BLB and how bad it is?




Top tight corner is some light (not BLB I guess) which is not so harhs as it smoothly fades into a brigther light.
The bottom is off puuting.

To me they look pretty bad -.- They ca be noticed clearly even when playing.
Is it something I can fix somehow? maybe by disasambling it? Electrical tape etc?

Thanks a lot smile.gif

I don't think that is too bad but if you are noticing it i would do something to fix it. Take a look at the first page of the thread and look for Backlight bleed fix. There are videos and tutorials about fixing it.
