Not sure what SL-DVI is but mine is DP->DVI-D

I believe its been proven that it's Matte behind it, vs gloss which is a shame.

Does the glossy have the matte finish behind it too?

No , matte is just a film placed over gloss. Another term used for it is AG (anti glare ) coating. most monitors are Glossy by default. If you remove the film ( there's a thread by Call Sign-Vega for it) you'll have a gloss panel. It's a tedious process though.

Tempered glass is more like when you're looking @ an apple cinema display, that type of front.

Then either you have an active DP->DL-DVI converter (the one with a USB cable) and do not realise it, or you are running your monitor at <60hz (30hz perhaps) or you are seriously violating the DVI spec (which one person has managed to do, but his situation was temporary and for testing only; it was far, far from stable).

DisplayPort is not compatible (by design) with dual link DVI. It is only directly compatible with single link DVI.

Depends if its multi mode or a single mode Display port though no? Since a multi-mode Display port has circuitry for sending both DVI and DisplayPort signals out of the port. Just look for the ++
Single mode no, you'll need the adapter you specified though.

It does not depend on multi-mode or single mode DisplayPort; DisplayPort++ is physically and electrically incompatible with DL-DVI. DP++ cannot physically send out a DL-DVI signal - the electrical pathways simply do not exist. The only way for DisplayPort++ to output a DL-DVI signal is for it to output a native DP signal, then for a converter to read that DP signal, and then convert it into a DL-DVI signal via internal electronics, then re-emit the DL-DVI signal using the adapter's own TMDS clock generator.

So I plugged in my new display last night and went for an OC, I started with 120Hz, whole screen just goes nuts. Tried 96Hz, Still totally bat**** crazy, 80Hz causes flicker and a large bright blue illumination along the top bezel. I tried both the 10ft DVI-D cable I got from monoprice and the one which came with the display, slightly different pattern.

Using CRU is the only value you modify the refresh rate? or do you tweak the other values in manual mode?

@lunap Which eBay seller did you purchase your monitor from? Sounds like they have a good return policies.

So is there anyone who regrets buying a glossy?

I don't know then, it just works for me, 120hz and all. Also no mine does not have the USB cable. From what I'm pulling up online I"m showing it's possible as well.

Both, neither are responding either its been more than 2 days since I started emailing them, and also 14 hours after ordering still nothing, I know its after midnight there now, so hopefully this afternoon. Though it stated same day shipping on one, and I ordered it around 6am their time. So I can't vouch for either. According to 1) Green-sum send's whatever regardless of what you order , even if you buy an item with a description, you'll have to email and specify. And WBC supposedly sends what you order.

Since I've already had one bad experience I feel now I need to verify w/ the sellers to ensure I get what I order now.
