Yes it was 1080p... I also noticed that in Windows Desktop. Thanks for adding that up. smile.gif At the moment, I can say that the colors are enjoyable... I'm now browsing for colorful and not so bright HD 1440p Wallpapers. biggrin.gif

Thanks for your user comment about GTX 770. thumb.gif And oh! i completely forgot the OC capability of this monitor so this is a plus! wink.gif


So (semajha) you can consider that as well... thumbsupsmiley.png

Loktar, how's the text readability? Are you on matte or glossy?

It's a QNIX [Tempered] so it's Glossy on outside and most likely Matte inside. lol I really can't tell if it's bad or not but it's alright i guess...

Seriously, I just had the facebook page open (screen was set at 96hz) for only 5-10 minutes and I'm still seeing those chat icons on the rights side.

So it might actually be necessary to open up the actual panel, and check for any pressure points or whathaveyous.
It might be worth it, since a lot of you seem to have the same BLB problem.

Edit, the image retention also seems to have disappeared within 5-10 minutes. So it's not the biggest of deals.

are you using CRU or your driver, so far we've had reports it doesn't show when using the driver vs the utility.

Guess i'll be going with x-star, just wanted to make sure there wasn't some important, new information on these monitors that I wasn't aware of.


Xstar's been around a bit and thinning out in some hence more QNIX orders as Xstar no longer has gloss in stock. Most people just jump @ w/e is being told to grab and the latest is QNIX so it started a roll lol.
