Hello people –
After lurking around this thread for about a year, I finally pulled the trigger and purchased three of these monitors (X-Star DP2710LED with matte finish) from Dreamseller a couple months ago in early September.
I went with the non-pixel perfect version to save money. Two of my three monitors have zero dead pixels; one of them has a single stuck/green pixel that I have trouble seeing unless I really look for it on a black background. These displays are AWESOME compared to my old single DCLCD 1920 x 1200 24” TN panel.
Two of my monitors can overclock to 110hz without issue, one of them maxes out at 96hz. I just run all three at 96hz without problems. I should mention I’m using a pair of “ancient” EVGA GTX 460 SC 1GB cards to run these bad boys (please don’t make fun…lol). Windows 7 64bit is my OS.
I mounted the three monitors on a free standing triple monitor stand from EasyMountLCD (http://www.amazon.com/Deluxe-Monitor-Standing-Supports-002-0020/dp/B006JG9RQ2/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1416433229&sr=1-2&keywords=triple+monitor+stand&pebp=1416433227391
After a ton of adjusting in order to position the monitors straight and level, this triple stand works fine for me.
Before mounting the monitors to the triple stand, I removed the factory stands from the X-Stars by following the debezeling techniques mentioned on the first page of this thread and Lawson’s Qnix/X-Star Overclocking thread (https://www.overclock.net/t/1493929/qnix-and-x-star-monitors-new-timings-and-overclocking-guide-club
Since the monitors were partially disassembled for factory stand removal, I went ahead and removed the metal framing around each of the panels to check for bends or warping that could add to backlight bleed. Two of the monitor’s metal frames had mild bends; one of them had a significant bend. Utilizing a flat surface, I was able to straighten all thee metal frames by hand. The metal frames bend easily so I was careful not to use too much hand pressure.
After putting all three monitors back together, I cannot detect any backlight bleed from any of the monitors.
I have used Color Sustainer v1.05 and tried a number of ICC profiles. However, to my eyes, my monitors look best and matched with factory color/gamma settings (even when overclocked to 96hz).
All in all, I’m very happy with my monitors. No regrets here...
