[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1017

post #10161 of 25968
Downloaded a bunch of the ICC profiles on the OP (thank you so much for having them!) and one of them was incredibly spot on! So within a few hours I already have a few of my friends ready to buy one now! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Thanks to everyone that contributes to this thread, it really has been a huge help even though I have only posted in here just now biggrin.gif

just got mine.

no dead pixels

light bleeding at top right but i don't care in the least bit. it's very unnoticeable.and the only way i noticed was with a side-by-side comparison with a $700 pro art line ASUS P-IPS monitor

screen real estate is amazing.

colors are perfectly fine to me. after testing the ASUS and Samsung ICC profiles provided, i ended up calibrating it myself. much better now smile.gif

however, PLS is definitely not as clear as P-IPS. even at 2560x1440, the 1920x1200 P-IPS is sharper.

other than that, 120 Hz rf no problem. It's pretty cool how fluid the mouse cursor moves now. I haven't found much applications for it though as I'm getting a max of 110 fps in LOL and graphics settings isn't the cause for the fps cap as opposed to network latency.

It's definitely a great deal. I'm pleased with this purchase.

Is your panel matte or glass? I saw a sharpness increase on mine after removing the matte since the film appears to give a SLIGHT blur.

was that something you need to open the monitor for?

I removed the plastic film over the screen as I figured it was just a screen protector.

after calibrating (the cleartype section) though, it's much better now.

The right side is the matte film. I removed that. You have to open the bezel to remove the film though.

Strange issue for me. Got my new Q-nix -- ordered glossy, got tempered...ugh. 6 stuck pixels as well. Almost no BLB though.

Overclocking to 96hz and when I select 96, desktop clocks ramp up from idle 300 to 500 core on my 7950 and the voltage goes from 0.806 idle to full power. Any way to keep this from happening or maybe a quick way to switch back and forth for gaming?

How can you tell if it's actual glossy or tempered? It does look like glossy, mine that is but it feels like plastic? Shouldn't it be glass or something?

* i forgot to mention i found the stand perfectly fine. it is a bit wobbly compared to other stands, but that's more cuz it's tiny compared to the size of the monitor. quality-wise, it's decent. if i push on my ASUS PA, it will rock back and forth, just a little more stiff.

so that was a +

Sweet man. Let me know what you think it is just by looking at it if you can as well, i would like to think it would be noticeable if it was matte.

No one knows. These Korean vendors speak in riddles. I asked my vendor if he was shipping me tempered glass and his response was, seems like tempered glass. What does that mean? From reading this thread it looks like some people get glass, some get plastic, some get matte under glass, some don't. It's all a crap shoot and no consistency.
