Worse comes to worse, buyers always have Paypal on their side. The sellers, usually lose.

Try my 120hz timings from the picture below and set them for your 120hz profile the exact same as mine..these timings work for most people and they will lower your pixel clock nearer to the pixel clock limit of 450mhz at 120hz which will give you a stronger signal i hope this helps thumb.gif

Use them in CRU

They do, don't they? But their product descriptions are also filled with inaccuracies and outright misinformation as well - such as "video card compatibility" lists (which are out of date and proven to be incorrect), as well as "DVI-D only", which is also complete BS.

Lawson - except this guy who bought a perfect pixel monitor and didn't eventually receive a perfect pixel monitor.

Yep i got two stuck pixels with my "pixel perfect". One is at the VERY top so that one doesnt matter but there is another that is in the top right quadrant and its quite annoying. Luckily RedCap refunded me the difference between a pixel perfect and a regular. All i had to do was send a picture.

Yes same with mine. Hope there is a fix for it, but If it was a dead sub-pixel then I'll just settle for a refund (Difference between the normal and the Perfect Pixel price).

When they offer a partial refund for defects because they don't want to replace, what is the amount offered generally??? Cheers guys.

green-sum offered me $15. I countered with $25 and they accepted. I did this via the eBay resolution process to avoid any shenanigans .

*shrug* The law may be on your side, but there's a lot of work involved enforcing it. Your time may be worth putting in a lot of time and effort convincing your ebay seller to "do the right thing". I'd rather not worry about the entire process and either accept the 11% chance to get a bad monitor, or go all the way and buy a monitor with a reputable warranty and return policy like Dell, or HP or Apple, who source and can control their own supply chains.

At the time I still had my HD 7950, I sent them a question about making sure my card was fine. Of course, I knew it was, but like you said, their card list is way off. Better to ask the dumb question just to be 100% sure.

Yeah... it just causes frustration sometimes though, when people come asking why their HD 5770 won't support the monitor, when it really actually does (I ran my Catleap overclocked on it for the better part of a few months). I must have answered that question a dozen times. At least with the compatibility list so old, we don't get many of those questions anymore (if you're buying one of these monitors, you usually have an up-to-date video card...) but the stupid DVI-D question keeps coming up.

Easy question for you guys. I just received my X-Star at work, I'll be hooking it up when I get home (fingers crossed for minimal defects!).

Excited to finally check out what all the hype is about. I have seen that there is a power brick that comes with the monitor (or USA adapter or w/e it is). Is the power brick necessary or can I plug directly into the monitor? When I plug in to my outlet are there any other settings I need to worry about (voltage wise etc.)?

Appreciate the help.

You need the brick, just plug it in and voila.

BTW all of these are from people that settled for less than a full refund and did not demand a reshipped perfect pixel monitor or and came to an arrangement with there seller!....completely pointless posting them!...as i said the law is the law if you want to come to an agreement with your seller its up to you however the Law is on your side if you want to refuse to keep that monitor and demand a full refund or a working replacement then you have that right...also it is not fully clear that any of these buyers bought ultimate pixel perfet..most pixel perfect still allows for i think up to 2-3 dead pixels...you can search all night but you can not change the law!...and posting people that have ordered pixel perfect and then have settled for a financial agreement with there seller is completely pointless!

is this someone from Ebay or Amazon or another site? I'm really behind on all the sellers, could you PM or link me by chance?

Thanks!
