Go with either the Qnix QX2710 or the Xstar DP2710 (both are the exact same except for name). They both overclock to 120Hz, and with a bit of modding you will have the thinnest-bezel 1440p monitors on the market.

Metal bezel width after debezelling: 10/16" with the picture being displayed at 11/16" (from outside of bezel to first pixel displayed).

So basically the bezel widths between monitors if you overlap them in portrait mode would be around 11/16".

If you set these up in portrait you will have a GOD TIER set up...can you imagine 4320x2560 @ 120FREAKING HERTZ!!! Total cost for the monitors will be sub $1000, add another $50 for modding all three monitors (total, not each).

Here's how they look in Landscape:

Here are the bezels up close:

How you may ask? Qnix QX2710 (Pixel Perfect )


It's a PLS panel (which is just Samsung's version of IPS), though the pixels are different from IPS monitors. Some also think PLS has better colors than IPS.

From what I've seen most people easily hit 110Hz, if not 120Hz, as long as you don't have a garbage graphics card.

The bezel is of reasonable size, too bad it's glossy though, I'll be painting mine matte black. Also the anti-glare coating on the monitor is quite light and doesn't degrade the picture quality. Sooo much better than glossy if you ask me, and many others will agree.

Mine came with 1 dead pixel and 1 stuck pixel (likely the stuck pixel can be fixed), I ain't even mad though...the pixels are so god damn small it's quite hard to notice it. I don't have any backlight bleed on mine, some people have experienced bleed, but there is an easy fix.

The downside of the monitor is that the casing is cheap, which ain't that big of a deal to me. Although it is kind of annoying that you have to remove the back panel to take off the stem of the mount (if you want to put this monitor on a monitor stand with arms).

All in all, I'm really happy with mine. Definitely recommend it if you're in the market for basically the best bang for the buck/performance monitor you can buy right now. Also, the shipping from South Korea is so stupidly fast...48 hours, how is that possible? If you're worried about a warranty or it dying you can get a warranty from Square Trade for $50 for 3 year coverage.

Feel free to read user's opinions in the huge Overclock.net threads:
- Original Thread
- Overclock Results
- Monitor Club w/ Optimization Guides

TL;DR
Pros:
-27"
-1440p
-overclockable to 120Hz
-amazing colors (click here to see the out of the box colors for yourself - note the bezels aren't that thin on stock Qnix's)
-cheap

Cons:
-cheap casing
-possible backlight bleed (though you can fix on your own)
- possibility that you will have 0-2 dead pixels (not a big deal when there are 3.6 million other pixels on screen)
-cheap monitor stand

Well, there's obviously loads posts explaining why the new QNIX qx2710 and X-star dp2710 are the most popular at the moment. Both use Samsung PLS panels and can be OCed up to 120Hz.

Aside from that, there are the new Achieva 2700 and Crossover 2735AMG:

http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/Crossover-2735AMG-Monitor-p/cro3.htm

Those apparently use a newer LG H-IPS panel, and both have Anit-Glare Tempered Glass (Plasma Deposition Coating) which is supposed to really work well. Hopefully someone from the Crossover/Achieva threads can chime in on their experiences.

Is it just me or does it look like Monoprice and Achieva are using the EXACT same pictures for their monitors but with different super imposed pictures?

So I take it IPSledmonitors.com is a reputable site to buy from? I'm in the market for one of these but have major reservations about buying through Korean eBay sellers. Plus a warranty on one of these sounds very appealing. Their return policies of no questions asked, no return shipping fee, and no restocking fees seem too good to be true.

They're legit, I got my x-star dp2710 from them. I think they're aware of the logistics issues with returning a defective monitor back to Korea, so being able to return a monitor for free within US is what sold me. Also, I called them (they have an 800 #) and were really responsive, whereas I emailed green-sum on Friday and didn't hear back until Monday at midnight.

Awesome, that's really what I wanted to hear. I was actually going to buy one from Monoprice, but their monitor is an extra 50 or 60 bucks and doesn't overclock.
