And what should I do to correct this or maybe just ship it back. Thanks

Wow I have never seen anything like that.O_o

How so?

I respectfully disagree. In that situation I would not do anything that might possibly jeopardize the warranty or give the seller any opportunity to claim I did something to cause the problem.

PS: monitor shows up as dual dvi which is strange.
Im glad you like the monitor. Mine shows up as a Dual DVI as well. This supports my claim that the Qnix and Xstars are the same monitor. The korean sellers take out the OSD PCBs and put a custom one inside and use the same panels in both monitors. Only thing that is different between the two is the name on the front.

Should be given a day off and a free QNIX QX2710 tongue.gif

I completed BF3 on my gtx 560 and the graphics were phenomenal. Also, don't choose the preset settings play around with them to get the best graphics (highres texture and details enviornment) remove AA, its of no use at this resolution. Turn of VSync and I have never like motion blur.

Return it, get a new one and one's its shipped ask for partial refund for your time and energy.

the last pic pretty much shows how large the gap is if you wish to compare. I've already seen people with the same problem here.
I do understand that there's supposed to be a black outline around the edges but i doubt its supposed to be this large(~ 2mm).
Anyway, can a n00b tinker such as myself fix it easily?

No there isn't supposed to be a black outline all around the panel, or maybe its just me.
I also have that 0.2mm gap at the top but it doesn't bother me, specially because the bezel is beautifully glossy. You can easily fix that, just open the front casing and add electrical tape where the panel sits, to raise it.

edit: oh wth, the squaretrade warranty went up to $50, I thought it was $30 from yesterday

Yes, its highly recommended, specially since we don't know how long this think will last in the long run.

If I got a second qnix Id just run those 2. Now to run the second one, would I require a mini display port to dvi-d dual link adapter? Kind of sucks that these adapters seem to run from 70-100 dollars.

I too would like to know the answer to that. I only have one DVI-D and 2 mini-DPs. I might just try to figure this out when my first one gets here.

True in most cases except the sellers don't even advertise any warranty and I only know that there is apparently a "one year" from the manufacturer from a passing mention here. Has anyone actually sent theirs back yet? I'm sure some of the IPS buyers have but I know no details.

The one year warranty was mentioned in the description of my monitor on ebay.

In other news, I can run @ 120Hz if I use the EVGA pixel clock OC utility, but I have a feeling once I reboot the login screen won't show up again. It seems that whatever video mode Windows uses between the loading logo and the login screen is causing an issue. I also am able to turn the monitor off and then back on while already logged in and running 120hz and it has no problem displaying properly then. Anybody have ideas? I'm getting tired of reinstalling the graphics drivers.

Fair enough. Had mine been dead of course I'd be trying to send it back.

Okay, must say that my monitor is beautiful. For the most part what I expected. Very minimal back light bleeding in the bottom left corner and even less in the bottom right corner. Not going to look for dead pixels, not right now anyways. Only complaint I do have maybe you guys can help me with? The bottom bezel is warped a little and sticks out from the screen a little. I can possibly get a picture later to better illustrate but it warps out a little and I can kind of see down inside. Is there anyway I can take it apart and fix it? Might just be unconnected somewhere but I am sure it is the crappy build quality. tongue.gif Or do people just debezal these monitors? Thank you. thumb.gif

Gonna go run through some Bioshock real quick before work.

ALSO, what should I be doing with this thing right out of the box? All I have done is plug it in. Should I be formatting or any tweaking? Thank you much.

Debezal? Sounds like some satanic god tongue.gif. On the first page there is a description of a method some people have used to remove panel-play, maybe that can help with your situation.

You shouldn´t format, its just a monitor. Try to overclock it if you want. Otherwise just enjoy it.,
