I got 3 cables all 3 foot 24AWG. One was worse than the stock cables, one was about the same maybe a little better, and the last was definitely better(funny how that worked out).

What seller (who sells QNIX, X-Star) is the best in case of complaints and service?

BCC, green-sum and hulustar seem to be the most reliable sellers.

Ok, BCC, green-sum, hulustar and dream-seller are the most reliable sellers.
Which one is the best in your opinion?

Wow, I missed a lot. I don't think I can catch up. We had a baby and I've been out of the loop. Upon trying to edit some newborn pics I noticed color banding on my Qnix in Lightroom, especially in over-exposed photos. I actually narrowed it down to my calibration. If anyone else notices this, let me know if the profile below fixes it. I made a new calibration profile using a matrix-based profile instead of LUT, which is more compatible with applications and is supposedly "smoother" at the expense of absolute accuracy. My banding problem went away and I see no tangible inaccuracy.

Here's what banding looks like (upped exposure to exaggerate): (Click to show)
Here's the original pic just to show of my new baby :) : (Click to show)

As it is the same panel, just a different brand. There shouldn't be a difference in the input lag. Also they are both 6ms.

So be aware of that on any new ones you may buy. Up until today I had been running it with just the top of the two on the stock cable screwed in iirc; display cables can be such a ***** and one of the things I hate most working IT. Glad this one not on bottom.

Congrats!!!

EDIT: In fact I think it might be a slight bluish tint causing it to look darker, towards the upper right, not an actual brightness difference. I guess it's just a normal panel uniformity thing? Like this: http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1510397

EDIT2: Yep, it's panel uniformity and common, per the first couple of pages of this thread (posts 40-120 or so) where people were comparing their gamma shift/uniformity with 40% gray pictures. Whew! Glad it's not a defect.

Only the people who have OCed their monitors have noticed burn-ins and I guess you can say that the uniformity issue is also from OCing. I would recommend you getiing back to 60Hz for atleast a week and see if that reduces it. You didn't notice the uniformity issue previously right ,so may be it wasn't that harsh before.

I don't get it. If the panel is the same and the pcb is the same, then why the hell does my goes up to 135Hz and yours only to 112Hz. I mean shouldn't they all be the same???

I also need to figure out if I should get a squaretrade warranty.

Alright guys. I'm going with the X-star. Will report back when it gets here. Ordering tomorrow.

Yeah I have taken a pic of the specs from the manual . The X-star also have a 6ms response time.

1. LCD Reduced

Any other tips??

Tweak your timings manually, and you're probably good then smile.gif. I was able to reduce my "total pixels" down to 2660 horizontal, and 1450 vertical, with 2 vertical front porch & sync width. Just start reducing the horizontal/vertical "total pixels" (NOT active pixels) downward from their defaults on reduced. If the screen goes black, it's too low (the nVidia control panel lets you just press ESC then and it'll come back to what it was at). Just take it in steps of 20-30 then narrow it down to 10's. smile.gif

I hadn't noticed it previously, but I was only running 96hz originally as well when I first got the panel, for some time. The higher my OC, the more severe the panel uniformity shift seems to be, but I'm not sure really how abnormal it is from the first pages of this thread. So, I'm not quite so worried now smile.gif. EDIT: Also I figure it's best to stress it in the first month while I still have an exchange available, if anything does go wrong, than go easy on it and then be out of luck if it can't handle 120 later.
