This is good to hear, I really don't trust those power bricks they ship with them.

Sorry, to clarify the standard jack is on the power brick, which then goes into the monitor. For what it's worth (probably not a lot), the brick claims to be UL-listed and has the FCC logo on it redface.gif .

Well, if it's "UL-listed and has the FCC logo" I guess I'll trust it since it's probably just a standard power brick with different pins on it.

I though my gtx 560 wasn't capable of overclocking above 96Hz but I believe its because the Pixel Clock reaches 400 MHz which is the limit.
I have patched the driver but still it doesn't seem to allow me to cross that mark.
Any one know what I might be doing wrong...

Is Qnix and X-star equal component & build quality?
The Qnix is more popular and cost 15usd/10£ more.... It is listed as 6ms GtG while X-Star is 8ms.

I currently have a XL2411t@144hz@1-2ms, not sure if getting the Qnix/X-star is overkill for single player games & casual gaming.

Which sellers are best if I want to avoid high import charges?

I have the x-starand in their manual it states having a 6ms response time.

Backlight bleed won't bother you unless you are watching a movie like batman and that too at very high brightness.

Nevermind this previous post of mine.
I finally went past the 400MHz mark and also was able to overclock my monitor upto 137Hz with screen jiggling a bit and also some horizontal lines. It never went beyond 137Hz till now and the highest yet most stable OC I achieved was 134Hz.

Please refer to my review, link in my signature, to know about the entire thing in details.

I have not tried this. Thought about it but didn't try it. Got too frustrated last night that I just gave up. I have been sent an email from the seller asking for my system details. Hoping they can come up with a solution. I will report back once I hear from them.

I love my x-star especially the glossy bezel is beautiful and the monitor doesn't look cheap at all, unless the person touches it and it starts to wobble.

So the X-Star wobble?

Is Qnix bezel matte while X-star is glossy?

The bezels are same and both the monitors suffer from a week casing, so the qnix will wobble too.
But that all right, it not like a jello you have to like poke it a bit hardly to notice the wobble. Typing or even punching the table won't shake it. It also depends on you table though.
