Wow look a bunch of comment about the perfect pixel scam again.

The perfect pixel crap is exactly the same as tossing the mechanic an extra buck and thinking he is going to give you slightly better service. Take away from that what you will. Some members will go for it others wont, just know what you are tossing money at. All mis-information that i see in the previous comments has already been addressed so i am not going to comment on it.

So on Monday I put the order in for an X-star, 1440p from dream seller. I paid them another $20 so that they give me the best. The total came out to $330+20=$350. They shipped it out Wednesday, and I got it Friday. I was expecting it to arrive on Monday, but since it arrived very quickly, I had to fix the rest of my PC up. I did in 1 day what I was planning on doing in 3 days. I'm very tired right now lol, but I will give you guys my experience with this monitor so far.

1- right out the box, I did a close expection of the pixels. Couldn't find any dead ones.

2- no stuck pixels. I checked the R, B, G colors and everything looks good.

3- BLB is what I'm a bit disappointed about. It's there, but it's not noticeable in anyway when the monitor is in use. Even in the darker scenes of games, or in videos, the BLB is not noticeable in anyway.

4- I OCed the monitor to 96hz. I didn't try pushing it any further, not because the monitor couldn't, but because I don't have the hardware to push games like BF4 to 120hz at the settings I played at. Once pushing it to 96Hz, I noticed no changes to picture quality.

Here are some pictures:

Grats on your new monitor! I agree, I honestly can't tell any difference whatsoever between 60 and 96 tongue.gif

Keep in mind that BLB is pretty much unavoidable. It's potentially there even on more expensive, branded monitors. It's just something that happens in monitor creation process and since you can't see it when the monitor is on anything but black screen, they don't care to fix it. The reason most of these panels were sold to QNIX and not used for SAMSUNG is almost always because of minor BLB. To me, it's well worth the money savings. By the time I would have saved up for my first 1440 monitor, I can be picking up a second smile.gif

I was confused by this as well, since there are multiple things you can copy/paste. What you want to do is select the active monitor, click the detailed resolution that should be there by default, click the "edit" button located in the "Deatiled Resolutions" box, then press the "copy" button that comes up in that window, click "cancel", then click "Add" (again in Detailed Resolutions area) and paste the info there. If paste is greyed out at this point, it is because the settings are already set to what they should be, just change the refresh rate and add it and you should be good to go (don't forget to reboot).

does that help?

Well, the faded red lines probably mean your overclock is slightly unstable. Try 110 or 96 hz.

I think most people still run at 60hz in desktop mode because there's no real benefit and chances are that like with most OCs, it will decrease the life of your monitor (albeit marginally)

But you can make sure it is working in game by setting your resolution to 2560x1440 and making sure refresh rate js set to 120 (or however many) hz. If it doesn't show you anything but 59 or 60 hz, something isn't quite right...either the game doesn't support it (only a few) or something didn't take. When I did it I kinda had to delete the profile and remake it once.

And also keep in mind that games switch to their own resolution settings in full screen but in windowed you just run off your desktop settings (in which case you would probably have to up the hz in either nvidia control center or catalyst, but it's probably better to just run games fullscreen and keep desktop set to 60)

Hey guys question, is there a guide anywhere to removing the matte film on these monitors? I want to pick up a pixel perfect one (after a horrendous problem with green-sum), and the only reasonably priced ones are matte. Any info is appreciated
