The Overlord X270OC's use the exact same outer plastic casing but instead use LG IPS panels that suffer from all of the normal problems that these monitors do (minimal BLB and occasional dead pixel), but they are twice the price as the Qnix/Xstar, making them completely obsolete and irrelevant now. I just happened to get lucky and find out about the Qnix monitors before my Overlord shipped (after months of delay after delay).

Remmib - How well packaged was your monitor when you got it? Have you got any issues with pixels/backlight bleed?
It was minimally packaged. I was surprised at that, but so have everyone else's been that way with no issues occurring from it. So I guess the box and styrofoam on the inside do their job well.
Zero bleed, one dead pixel.
Dead pixels aren't as big of a deal as most people make them out to be. You really have to go out of your way to notice them on a 1440p monitor...consider the fact that there are almost 3.7 million total pixels on the screen.
