That's my concern as trying to line up three monitors as close/even as possible when each stand arm is attached a good two inches to the left/right of center(depending on which way you flipped the monitor) could prove problematic. Horizontally there wouldn't be an issue as the vesa mounts are centered for that.

Thank you for the note about the desk clamp stand. I was looking at one on Amazon and it seemed to get pretty good reviews while looking pretty sturdy. Wonder why those people had less issues. Did you have enough space on your desk's lip for a good "clamping"? Do you think it could've been the quality of the stand you bought? Getting a triple monitor stand that only has a single base that sits on the desk seems to me would require one heavy base to support the weight. That or would require you bolt it to the desk.


I don't know why i had issues, i re did it like 5 times, i really wanted to keep it but it just wasn't safe enough for me. I posted pics on here asking for opinions, few people agreed it didn't look right, the arm i bought was rated for up to 15kg, it was a brateck so wasn't the highest quality, but should have been adequate. I weighed the qnix and it comes in at 5.5 to 5.7 kg on my scales so shouldn't have had any issues. I think a few guys have a portrait set up on here that would be more qualified to answer than i am, just wanted to give you the info i know since you were asking and no one was helping. I know it can be frustrating people just skimming over your posts.


You could try just looking through all the pictures in the thread and finding the users that have a portrait eyefinity set up and shooting them a pm, like this guy. Doesn't seem like he has too many issues.

Just ordered a Qnix QX270 from Green-Sum, can't wait for it to get here and clear customs!! Crosses fingers for no dead pixels and minimal bleed!

Comming from Eyefinity 3x22" with 1680*1050 60hz where one screen died on me, so I'll be using the two left as side screens.

No I appreciate your help. You did give me something to think about when it comes to the desk clamp and thank you for that member's name. a 3x setup probably isn't "too" common and the members who have it may no longer be looking at this thread as well. Hopefully i'll find my answers soon.

Anyone knows if the new Planar PXL2790MW has a glossy surface (edge-to-edge glass) compare to these Korean monitors?

I may be worrying for nothing and it may mount just fine with a traditional triple mount stand, but if I can get some assurances first that would be good.

Got my X-star from dream-seller. No dead pixels and no BLB. Haven't tried overclocking beyond 80hz yet. I removed the stand and mounted to an Ergotron LX dual stacking arm along with a Crossover 27Q and two Dell U2412s. Running the Crossover and one Dell in portrait and the X-star and other Dell in landscape. Using Arch Linux and a GTX 660.

To other Linux nvidia users: The simplest way to get them working is:

Option "IgnoreEDIDChecksum" "DFP-0, DFP-3" (where DPF-0 is the X-star and DFP-3 is the Crossover)

This will use the monitor's built-in edid and ignore the invalid checksum, so no custom edid is needed.

Thats an interesting monitor layout.

Got my Xstar in today as well. I will live with it for a few days before I judge. One thing I do know, the stand, speakers and packaging are as advertised. rolleyes.gif

Having all four monitors mounted on ergotron arms allowed me to try some different setups, and this is the one that I found most useful. I do mostly programming, and having 1440p in portrait is perfect for writing code. Then having a 1200p in portrait is perfect for web browsing since most sites fit within the 1200px width. Then I have the X-star and second Dell for videos, games, and other things that are better suited for landscape. I have tried a 2x2 grid of all landscape and 1x4 row of all portrait, but nothing beats having one of each monitor size in each orientation. The only problem I had initially was that fonts looked ugly on the portrait monitors because of sub-pixel hinting. But I tried the Infinality font rendering patches, and now fonts look great in both portrait and landscape, although slightly better in landscape.

The stacked 27" and 24" are only 80px taller than the 27" in portrait. Screenshot of actual desktop:
