I believe there were several reports on this thread that someone who received a tempered glass model actually had a matte finish beneath it.

Mine is glossy and has NO tempered glass. I have debezeled the monitor so i have confirmed this. It would not be surprising if a couple tempered glass panels got mixed up with straight glossy though.

However i would imagine a matte panel with tempered glass is quite the screw up.

Just an update on my situation. My xstar came with a full row of dead pixels. I got it from Dreamseller on ebay. I messaged him as soon as i found the pixels. He was very responsive and helpful with replies <5 minutes after i would send each message. They gave me instructions for sending it back to Korea and they paid for shipping. Once they get it back i assume they are gonna give me a refund or maybe send me another one. either way i would be happy as long as i end up with one of these monitors.

Ill prolly end up ordering from dream seller again once i get the money back because the return experience was so good, and i feel like the dead pixel was just bad luck because many people got near perfect monitors from him.

Id really be fine even if there was 5-10 dead pixels, but a whole row is 1440 dead pixels lol. Just bad luck on my part.

Just tried the tape mod, used one layer around all edges, black electrical tape. It seems to have reduced it a bit on the bottom, but it did nothing to the bleed on the right side. What do?

I think someone posted about receiving a tempered glass monitor over a matte screen earlier in the thread.

This is good to know becasue I am about to pull the trigger on an Xstar from dreamseller. Sounds like they are good to deal with. Thanks for the heads up. Good luck man, I hope it all works out for you.

Must be a few weeks since I replaced my pcb, received an email today from the seller requesting I return the defective one lol, no mention of postage cost from the Uk to Korea, safe to say it was thrown in the bin then.

Yeah they really want those pcb's, they really wanted the monitor that I received damaged back and I had no idea why at the time. Must have wanted to take the pcb out of it.

Hey, thanks for the response

I'm a bit hung over, got taken to the cops station last night, bought a rose for like 20$, my buddy got his eye dumb'd up, so bare with my grammatical schenangians.

I have a sager 9390 (core i7 3980?, 32g ram, 160+250SSD, 780gtx, blu-ray burner, etc.)

I am not seeing any bios or anything from the monitor itself on startup.
