I got mine a couple weeks ago. I can run 120Hz with LCD reduced settings with the DVI cable that comes with it. I usually leave it at 96Hz all of the time, because I can't really tell a difference between 96Hz and 120Hz.. but 60hz to 96hz is noticeable. Two dead pixels, I found them when I was looking for them, and have never seen them again.

@lightsout Or if anyone is interested in replacing your current wobbly stand. This is what I dug up. What be nice if OP was updated to include these stands.

Here are some old posts with regards to those Compaq/HP stands. They do work wink.gif

You can try looking for the HP ZR24/27/30 stands as they should be similar, if not the same but longer. There's also the HP ZR2240w (LED version of the ZR22w).

Source: I use 2x ZR22w's + 1x ZR2240w.

Currently on Ebay

If I ever go multi mon. I think these stands will work just fine.

Ordered a matte X-Star from dream-seller for $300. I originally set out to get the tempered glass version to match my Crossover 27Q but decided to switch after reading many reviews praising the anti-glare (AG) coating on the X-Star / QNIX.

About 10 minutes later I received a reply from dream-seller regarding their stock. I have posted it in its entirety in case anyone is curious:

Hello, Thank you so much for your purchase.

We received monitor in stock today and was doing quality check and the quality is not good at all. I want to provide the best service along with best product to our buyers and decided to turn around the monitors that are not good enough to ship out. We are to get restocked next week around Tuesday.
I understand that this might be very long wait for you and I sincerely apologize.
I hope this is wait is okay with you.
Please let me know how to further assist you. I am willing to fully refund you also if you insist.
Thank you for reading my message.
Hope you enjoy your New years smile.gif


I told dream-seller to do whatever he/she/they felt fit. Will update as the situation develops.

I have noticed the highest overclock I can get is 92HZ, any higher and I get these small green lines, they get more noticeable as I increase the overclock of the monitor, anyone got any tips on how I can get rid of these green lines? Getting up to 96hz would be nice, I have tried using the cru and evga pixel clock but the small green lines are still there, they randomly appear at different parts of games, could trying another cable help?

So I just got my monitor from the mail, and I'm quite happy about it (no dead pixels); however, if I turn the screen completely black and I look at the right side, there are a few "light lines" that show up. Does anyone know how to get rid of this? I mean, I guess it's only annoying if I'm looking in the dark, but it's fairly noticeable.

I've removed the tempered glass of my Qnix, there was a matte panel behind.
Now I have a little gap between bezel and panel, it's a little loose. Luckily, backlight bleeding hasn't gotten worse.
I think I will leave it this way. When I keep pressure on the slight blb, it doesn't get any better, so I guess tapefix mod would be useless.

2 of my 3 screens have this and as far as I am aware there is no fix. It is very likely the reason your panel was not made into a apple display is because of those lines. Just enjoy your screen as is because honestly in normal use you don't ever even notice it.

Thanks.

Unfortunately, I do notice it whenever I watch a movie and there is a dark scene; however, for gaming, I'm paying attention to other things. Regardless, it's probably not worth returning considering the backlight bleeding is minimal and there are no dead pixels.

How annoying are dead pixels?
Ordered my X-Star some days ago.
post #11960 of 25922
not sure whether to grab this or not...
wonder if a single 280X can support gaming at this resolution...
