Guys New egg has a great Shell Shocker deal on a 4 port USB 3.0 hub, 78% off @ $12.00 and free shipping. Personally I am gonna stick one on the back of my Qnix monitor so I have some USB ports in close reach.

Check it out,

Has anyone considered not overclocking these because the color and brightness variation is very apparent when I measure it with my colorimeter. I've been running it at 96 hz for about 3 months now and I notice the monitor drifting from the calibration within 2 weeks.

Before that I ran it at 120 hz for 1 month and I had to recalibrate at the and of the week. I ran the exact same experiment on my other 2 qnixes all purchased from separate sellers and I've observed the same thing.

When I turn the monitor on, it cycles through red and green colors really fast. This only happens when I kill all the power to the monitor. If I turn it off via the power button and then turn it back on later, it doesn't go red/green. I was wondering if killing all the power to the monitor is harmful to it at all? Reason I ask is because all of my monitors are connected to a power bar, and its much easier to turn the power bar off at night instead of each monitor individually.

This is really odd.. The colors change over time? It makes me kind of worried about running this in constant overclock.

So the ones that say SLIM are the same as those that don't say it?
Also it have to be single DVI to overclock? So if it say DVI-D don't even look at it.

I looked the FAQ but that not there.
Thanks.

I have searched this thread extensively and can't find an answer, so I'm going to ask again. Thanks very much in advance to anyone who can help.

I want to run three Qnix 27 inchers at 1440 off my single GTX 780 in nvidia surround. I do not care about overclocking the monitor, 60hz is fine. I have 2 DVI, 1 HDMI, and 1 Display-Port. What do I need in order to plug the third monitor into one of the non-DVI ports? (I assume I can't plug it into my motherboard's and still have it run properly?) I have seen some saying it will work only with some $80 adapter? If so, can you link me to a good one? Or if that's just in order to get the 120hz, I'd like to run at 60hz for cheaper if possible.

Please let me know, and thanks a bunch!

Mines has been in Japan since the 13th, and another update on the 14th saying it was still in Japan.

The expected date is Tuesday, so hopefully it still manages to arrive by then.
