I ordered this one: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001HHNCQY/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. It is for 2 monitors but it was Under $50 and I am sure you can hook just 1 mount up if you need too. These mounts are usually designed to be configurable and modular. I bought it because after 111 reviews it still has a 5 star review. I will let you know when it arrives how it actually is.

That is an excellent mount. I used it for dual 24"s. It is very sturdy. I'm not sure about using it for one as I don't remember if the arms can come off. But honestly I never considered it.

After I got rid of it I got a single mount from monoprice and was disappointed as the quality was no where near the one from amazon.

12/5 at around midnight PST. So it was shipped within 24 hours. If it gets here Monday that's really fast and only the weekend messed up the speed. But seeing how it went back to Korea, to AK and then back to KY and now is in Oakland,CA tonight that's even more impressive. Could the package really go back and forth twice before getting to CA though?

Is there any sure fire way to know if it is actual Glossy or Tempered Glass?
I honestly got no idea how to tell and would love to know so I can remove that tempered crap from the monitor if it is like that infact.
The screen feels like plastic and I get no artifacts when I press on it with my thumb, even if I press pretty hard on it.

If I take it apart will the Tempered bit just come off and result in a matte panel? I saw the pic a few pages ago that someone removed it or something from the monitor and it became so much more clearer.
And again, I'm not sure if mine is even blurred or not, it SEEMS pretty clear to my eyes.

Just fooled around trying to get 120Hz to work on my work MacBook Pro (late 2013 with nvidia GT 750M, yes the $2599 model, no I would never pay for this crap). I'm using an X-Star with the Monoprice mini displayport to dual-link DVI adapter.

It's been working fine with 120Hz on Windows. I've been switching the cable back and forth between my pc and the monoprice adapter to my mbp, which is really annoying.

Using SwitchResX, I couldn't get 120Hz to work at all, but I got 85Hz to work, and it looked like crap. Text was shadowy. Needless to say, I'm stuck with 60Hz when using this thing with a mac. god, I hate this ecosystem. (it even maxes out at 100Hz on my BenQ XL2420T, which does 120Hz natively, and has DisplayPort natively.)

I'm still tempted to try the multi-input model. I've given up with gaming on the Samsung PLS - input lag, response time, and FPS are just that much faster with the 1080p XL2420T - so I'm not too concerned about the additional input lag from a multi-input Samsung PLS. I just want 120Hz to work. my eyes can't use 60Hz any more. frown.gif

it's most likely glass.

Has anyone found any nice monitor stands for the x-star other than the ones that are provided in the main page of this thread?
