I told the seller to put the price as $100 so that i won't be charged duties. and they didn't charge me any. so glad! DHL was the shipper. within the country, they used Sagawa as the courier. they probably wouldn't have charged duties anyways, but i didn't want to take the chance.

about the monitor though, there is no backlight bleeding that i can notice. (if there is some bleeding, it is same as the old Iiyama 27" 1080p display i had before this) and no dead pixels that i can see. i got one with pixel perfect guarantee. unfortunately, it cannot hit 120Hz. it can hit 96Hz though. 108Hz also doesn't work. i'm going to keep it at 96Hz for now. maybe there is a way i can get 120Hz.

still getting used to the size of the text. they are so small .

man now i need a powerful GPU. GTX670 doesn't quite cut it when playing Crysis 3 MP.
Mine won't go over 100Hz either. I bought another DVI cable to test. Hopefully that's the fix. If not, 96 is fine :-D

These dropped a bit in price. I keep seeing everyone ordering Qnix the last few pages. Is there still no difference between the two?

The X-Star is now 279...

Any reason why I shouldn't pull the trigger on the X-Star?

You can adjust the dpi in the desktop settings, for the font, and sadly I instantly recognized japan from the corner of your photo where the slidering doors are haha, and if I'm not mistaken that small green corner is the edge of your tatami mat? biggrin.gif I miss it so bad there, lived there for 3+ years in the Kanagawa area in Honcho Yokosuka.

All 3 of mine hit 120 easily though I'm staying @ 100/110, verify the cable at least supports 9.9 gb/s there are many that only do 2.3 and 3.2 which shouldn't even be regarded as DVI-D probably for the old 2048x1536.

They're both the same panel so you're fine w/ either. I have both now.

From the pictures, the stand looks exactly the same. So I have no idea. Unless there is different or more outputs but it's the exact same panel in the exact same case. I just with Qnix because a lot of people were recommending that one.

edit: Nope. Same DVI-D and everything else is identical. So yea, its the same.

Thanks!

Also, the glossy QNIX is going for 289 now. Which is also a drop for those that are looking for one...

It's not glossy sadly lol it's just glass to make it look that way, he's probably raising prices due to the amount of returns. Holiday pricing would raise more if it was the case. I'm shipping one of mine back to him later, need to order one more. He emailed back though claiming it's gloss underneath. We'll see I'm gonna probably prop open the bad one just to look.

There's no difference. Same panel. Same stand, in most cases from what I've seen, although the stands aren't always uniform with either.
