[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1120

post #11191 of 25887
Literally just got my X-star DP2710 less than an hour ago (bought it for $279 off eBay, non-pixel-perfect listing). Initial testing doesn't show any dead or stuck pixels so I'm really relieved about that, although those might possibly develop over time. Backlight bleed on the other hand does seem pretty bad along the bottom. I might consider doing the tapemod at some point because yeah it's pretty bad. It has a "tan" colored tint to it. Worst BLB in any monitor I've had before and I've owned a lot. 96Hz seems to be fine. Briefly tested 120Hz and it also seems fine, but I didn't do any extensive testing or anything.

1. good questions

4. Same questions again
5. anyone who says "search gets trolled"
6. answer get re-answered
7. REPEAT (1100 pages worth)

Don't believe me search "front porch" and look at all the repeat situations. Then search "shipped" and see 800 of the 1100 pages pop up.

Honestly if you got rid of all the shipping comments and people refusing to read the thread could be maybe as little as 150-250 pages if that. You could fit all the good info into 15-20 pages which is guess is somewhat of the case for many threads but this one in particular is just rampant. I guess it is the nature of the product, its use and the majority of people it attracts to buy.

I do have some good info to add for guys running firefox and use the Qnix at 120hz.

A: Open a new tab
B: Type "about:config" into the address bar(no quotes)
C: Accept that if you just change crap that you don't know what it is and brake firefox it is your own ignorant fault.
D: Search "layout.frame_rate"
E: Right click and click modify
F: Change this value to either your refresh rate of your monitor or exactly double it(i think it looks better doubled)
G: Enjoy a good deal smoother page loading(at least on your eyes)

I have given some good, useful new information. And now for anyone who wants to find this info again after it gets lost in this threads repeat cycle you can SEARCH: Guhpobrake
this!

Anyone?
post #11194 of 25887
So to over clock it need to have a single DVI plug or is to only have 1 input plug no matter the type.
Or all the version over clock no matter the connector?
Also the ones that say slim are thinner or the same?
Thanks.

I haven't experienced this issue yet. What did you use to OC the monitor? I can think of things like: Patching the driver using ToastyX tool from http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-NVIDIA-Pixel-Clock-Patcher or using CRU instead of NVCP to add custom resolution or trying different drivers. Lastly i don't think this is a GPU issue unless you can test it with different GPU... or the issue is the Monitor itself? and i hope not... thinking.gif

sweeet

and its not perfect, let me list why I think its A-

theres a couple tiny bruises (hard to find) in the monitor or dust I don't know... I think that's why it was declared A-

Otherwise I'm happy, you cannot get a perfect monitor of this size anyways, no matter if you go with Dell or Apple there's always something tiny wrong.

I had 4 replacements on my U2711 and still had bruises on one or a dead pixel on another... Lol if you're looking for perfection you won't find it tongue.gif

Its sucks to get the bruises on your monitor... I guess I got really lucky.

Are there any Koreans that have multiple inputs, vesa mount, and overclockable to around 120hz? (Don't murder me for a question that has probably been asked a million times.)

Yep haha I think i have had not one without a bruise of some sort. Seems matte just isn't that protected so they always get them. Literally my 7th matte one they all had it. Lol one reason why gloss is better

Not possible. With that you need a scaler and that causes input lag which nullifies the ability to overclock.
