Ughhh Almost perfect...

Ordered my X-star from Dreamseller for 270. Got it today, and theres a thin black line near the bottom of my screen. Pics below. What are my options? This is an obvious defect, can i return to SK? how much is shipping?

Good news is, no dead pixels or backlight bleed. and it overclocks to 120 easily >.>

Everything on Maxed Except for Anti-Alias I average I would say around 85-90. When Flying I'm around 110-125, sometimes in certain areas I'll push around 180.

My GPU is overclocked pretty heavily I'm at 60mhz offset and 500mhz mem offset with over-voltage.

QNIX/X-star Matte = Added Matte coating to the panel then placed in the bezel the same way. The matte coating reduces reflections.

QNIX/X-star Tempered Glass = A tempered glass plate is placed in front of the panel. Users have reported that both Matte coated and original glossy (un-coated panels) are being placed behind the tempered glass plate, seems a bit random which you will get.. The only way to find out what type of panel is behind the glass is to remove it, which requires disassembling the bezel.

edit:

The reason for confusion. green-sum decided they would start selling the Tempered Glass model to customers who purchase through their "Glossy" listing. In other words, if you bought the Glossy QNIX from green-sum 3 months ago, you would have received a QNIX Glossy. If you buy it today, you will instead receive a tempered glass QNIX. It's not the same, but they figure most users will see that the Tempered Glass is (shiny) and thus assume they got what they paid for. Unless, you're me and have the actually Glossy QNIX that was in stock 3 months ago.

So whats bad about another layer of glass? I how hard is it to remove the tempered glass to get the matte or glossy undercoat?

It's not necessarily bad, but I don't see any advantage to having it in front of your monitor. The tempered glass seems to be mounted cheaply as users in the past complain about it sliding down. Also, it appears to break easily during transit.

If it is a glossy panel behind the tempered glass, it begins to make sense because the tempered glass may protect an uncoated glossy screen.

If it is a Matte panel behind the tempered glass, then it seems to be redundant, if not a disadvantage. Mainly because the matte screen is already protected and reduces reflections. I would suspect the tempered glass would only add a reflective surface in front of your matte panel and do nothing to improve image clarity.

* Is it hard to remove? I don't think it is, but you have to disassemble the bezel, which is the last thing I want to do on a $300 monitor I purchased.

Not much, and you adjust to it fairly quickly, if you're not debezling then don't worry about it. Our job is just to make sure if you're really into either or that we give you the right information, so you don't end up angered or confused thumb.gif

So one last question: Can one visually tell the difference between a tempered glass Qnix/Xstar with glossy or matte finish underneath?

It's difficult to so quick answer is no. For those that are used to both, it just gives you a sense of curiosity.

You'll be fine w/ it though as you don't mind mine the way it is just I'm removing the bezel so I want to ensure its gloss underneath as I'll need to remove the glass in order to debezel fully.
