It's his own fault for deceving. I'm getting paypal on now actually to refund me so that he's forced to recall it. I hate dealing with people like this. So definitely glad I ordered from 2 different sellers, HOPEFULLY green-sum is different. He'll be responding in another 5 hours about my tempered glass comment so we'll see.

Hey guys, I have 3x Planar 2710MW's and I'm looking for an upgrade for 3x 2560x1600 monitors and I'm looking at the x star one. I don't want to mess this up. I looked at the perfect pixel model, however reading some things online, some people have had dead pixels even when they ordered the perfect pixel monitor, I'll be using these for gaming and video editing. [Looking at dreamseller atm]

Did you received a matte or glossy finish?

The glare from the tempered glass is just unacceptable to me. I also sent Green-sum some messages about my purchase asking to to please make sure it's just a plain Glossy screen.

Looks like glossy to my eyes but I can't be 100% sure without actually turning on the display and I currently don't have a device right now to use it with.

how long will it take to get back money from paypal? Does the seller have to get it back first.

PS: what size screws is everyone using for a vesa mount?

Does anyone actually have pictures of the tempered glass one?
post #9808 of 25888
How do you tell the difference between tempered glass and glossy? I assume both are reflective. I supposedly have a glossy from worldbest but now I don't know if its tempered glass or glossy. Is there a definitive way of distinguishing between the two?

Glossy screen should be a little soft. And should have some give when you push on the screen. Tempered has a sheet of glass over the screen so it should feel more rigid.

What is bad about the tempered glass? Is the clarity or colors compromised?
