Looking to order this unless anyone knows anywhere better, OR if Tempered = better than gloss as in still glossy but adds ????????????????

much appreciated

It's subjective. Tempered glass adds glare and cost. The effect on color is subjective. Think of glossy as a normal dell ips monitor, not meant to be touched. Tempered glass is like an apple display or a touch display, a smooth layer of glass covering the actual panel. I had a lot of trouble cleaning my Achieva Shimian with normal monitor-cleaning products, but it did have less glare than my current monitor. I did not get tempered glass in the first place because people complained that it was installed after factory manufacture and trapped dust inside.

Nothing is straightfoward. Lots of office workers I know prefer Dell's ultra-thick anti-glare because they are in environments with a ton of ambient light. It all depends on your needs.

I see settings in Nvidia Control Panel but they are set to "Other Applications control color settings"


I wouldn't change any settings in the nvidia control panel while using the icc profile, kind of defeats the purpose. I would just turn the brightness on the monitor to maximum. If it's to dark it could be because you are using 120hz and i'm using 96hz with that profile and maybe you should use a 120hz icc profile or go back to 96hz. As far as it looking more red, calibrated displays are generally warmer, also my display was a little green dominant out of the box so if yours wasn't then there's a chance yours is to red now. I would use this image to make sure your gamma is correct with that icc profile and 120hz, if it's correct the boxes should blend in to eachother if you squint while looking at it...

Appreciate it, I'll just go ahead w/ gloss then. This matte does look pretty insane but for some reason vs gloss the brightness hurts my eyes, maybe I"m just getting used to it I dunno. Either way is the seller above good?


I'm looking for the fastest possible method of getting my monitor

Also just clocked it straight to 120hz in the nvidia panel so these are pretty solid, brightness went down a bit but bumping the gamma to 1.2 fixed it.

For anyone who is interested here's a download link for a calibration utitlity that has all the tests you could ask for, it's legit and it's free, just download the mp4 version. I think it should be added to the op, not sure how to go about that tho...

Darn it seems all sellers are out of gloss, and stating it's due to supplier no longer making? They said they have CrossOver glosses in stock, how do they compare w/ X-STAR/QNIX?

It actually lists the 5850 as not compatible on green-sum's QX2710 page if you scroll down to the VGA section. Not sure why either.

Can't seem to get 120 to work flawlessly on mine. There's the occasional red line across the screen during gaming so I had to downclock to 110, is this a cabling issue or a monitor issue?

Guess I"ll grab a QNIX vs an X-Star granted they're the exact same just feels diff swapping lol.

I believe this IS gloss correct? gonna order 3


What I"m not undersatnding is both of these sellers are selling X stars for 500-750$ for the gloss versions.

All I've received in feedback thus far is that they're out , and people won't have more in stock for another couple months or so supposedly.

I sent greensum a question about that listing. He said you have to tell him that you want glossy after buying it, otherwise he said they will just ship a random one (matte or glossy). I just went ahead and ordered from the worldbest365 listing instead which was for a glossy one, so that I wouldn't have to deal with any possible confusion.

They work just fine with DVI-I.
