wonder if any1 can help me with this.

i have a qnix and have this weird problem. i have set up my colors to my liking in the nvidia control panel, but when i launch a full screen game (so far tested with diablo 3), the settings disappear. if i select windowed fullscreen in the game options, the settings from nvcp are kept.

is there any way to force the nvidia control panel color settings at all times?

i also have a secondary monitor DELL U2412, but i don't use nvidia control panel for colors on that.

Try monitor calibration wizard. Download it, then name it and save it in monitor calibration wizard, then load the profile you just saved in the drop down box, click force persistent profile and click load.

Just got my X-Star DP2710 a few days ago from dream-seller.

I was hit with 55$ of import duties (Montreal) but I sorta expected it. Came out to 355$ CAD total so not too bad.

I was a little miffed that I had to take the screen apart to remove the stand, but it wasn't too painful and only took me like 10 minutes.

With the stock cable i'm overclocking at 110Hz. At 120 I get weird blue interlacing lines. Maybe with a different cable that would dissapear but im not complaining!

With the tempered glass can you remove it and reapply it or once the glass comes off its off for good?

Hello, this is Green-Sum, the eBay seller.

Since you said you wanted a glossy version, we are informing you about the difference between previous version and current version. Previous glossy version was not coated with any films. So there were lots of problems such as scratches. Since the reason, the manufacturer changed the specification close to tempered glass one so that those problems could be reduced. To make sure, we are holding your item. Please let us know if we can ship the monitor or not.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Green-Sum
I got the exact same response from worldsbest. He doesn't say if it's over a matte or glossy screen though. Can anyone here that has the glass version confirm what's underneath.

Different people have reported different things. I believe mine is glossy beneath the tempered glass, but i haven't taken it off. I asked the seller and they assured me it was glossy underneath, this was before i indicated a preference.

OK so you actually own a tempered glass. I would think you would be able to tell if it was matte underneath. So I assume you are correct. I will have to confirm with the seller which it is. Hopefully he knows and is honest.

Someone posted some pictures a number of pages back with tempered vs matte and the glass screen was totally washed out. Black's were gray. There was a ton of light right on the monitor with a really bad glare. So idk. I wouldn't think a piece of glass would change it that much. Hopefully just some bad pictures. Doesn't the iMac have a sheet of glass over it? My moms has a good amount of light in the room and the screen looks excellent.

The colors don't seem too impressive out of the box (compared to my Benq TN panels) but im gonna try out some color profiles and report back.
Congrats!

PS: No import duties. Just sales taxes + "processing fee".

ditto on the 110hz, 120hz has blue lines.

I tried a different wire and it didn't help, the wire I bought also had an amazon review of a guy saying he had been through a bunch of wires trying to get that last 10 hertz and this one worked for him, well didn't work for me

I really think changing the wire is not likely to help as the limitation on these lies in the PCB. I mean if you ever saw the solder job they did on these pcb's LOL!

Also the wire they come with is a perfectly acceptable quality wire so I wish I had saved the $8 or whatever I spent replacing it.
