Just received my X-Star from dreamseller.
Ordered Monday and it arrived Friday. Pretty insane coming from Korea.
VESA mounted it to the wall for full motion.
Thing I noticed right off the bat: Doesn't come with a power wire that works with U.S. plugs (had to borrow one from previous monitor). Larger viewing area and much more desktop space. Base stem is there to stay and looks ugly (base can be removed).
Things I noticed a bit later: Color is not very good out of the box, 96Hz is simple as changing a 60 to 96.
Things I noticed later: 120Hz gives off static horizontal lines
, 120Hz makes colors even worse (correctable though). 120Hz makes games feel smooth as butter. Movies look awesome in both 96 and 120 mode.
Things I looked into: My monitor has moderate back light bleeding (not light but not picture destroying) but it only has 1 dead pixel in the bottom right corner. This doesn't bother me because I knew I was paying much less for an A- panel. A particular bad patch of light bleeding would probably be fixed by a tape mod anyways.So a few things I need help with:
Is the base stem removable or is it melded with the plastic in the bezel?
Where are some good color profiles for 120Hz / 96Hz X-Star?
edit: They are on the first post.
How do I get rid of the few horizontal "glitch / static" lines that appear in 120Hz?
I'm guessing the base clock needs reducing but how? Currently it is at 483.3984 MHz.
Also League of Legends will just crash if not opened in 60Hz mode. It will play alright in 96Hz / 120Hz but when you first open the client it crashes.edit: I got rid of video corruption in 120Hz by using these settings. Thank you immensely Spartan F8!
I'm using the 3ft. DVI-D cable the monitor came with.
Although if you think using preconceived settings is too easy then overclocking consists of reducing "Total Pixels" by 10 and "Total Lines" by 1 until the problem goes away and you don't get a black screen.Edited by kennyparker1337 - 12/27/13 at 4:38pm
