Thanks! How to open/run a ICC profile? And which ICC profile of the two should I run? And I see 200 cd/m in the name of those profiles. Does that mean I have to be on 200 cd/m brightness? If so, how can I make sure I am on 200 cd/m? Btw, I have the same timings as you now, but the right side of the screen still remains darker than the left frown.gif Is it safe to use your timings for 96 Hz?

Hi
I ordered a qnix ultimate pixel perfect from exelantcastle on Thursday they still have not shipped it I keep asking when they will and they just offer me a refund.
I'm happy to wait but they can't seem to tell me when they will ship it, they just say thanks for waiting.
Hopefully they will send it this week smile.gif

So .. what have you done ??


I want 1440p for 27" .. I work on 20" Dell and I'm sure 27" need more resolution ..

I want Qnix with its high res, and the issue that my laptop doesn't support DVI.

My question is, would it be good to use the DVI - HDMI cable?

Is this a flipping joke or what?

It's clearly not being flown but waiting for some container ship.

So you can chalk this up as a negative review for ExcellentCastle Expedited International Shipping


OK I've not chimed in for a while. I don't know where DHL got the initial delivery estimate on the tracking info from, but shortly after venting (above) on this thread I Googled Incheon and found it was actually an airport and not a harbour (so that put my mind at rest that it was actually being flown !)

Tracking went fine through Leipzig and to UK in 2 days. It was due to be delivered last Friday but apparently the courier encountered a serious road traffic accident (he wasn't involved) and was unable to get to me (I actually got an email saying "Customer refused order" so I phoned 'em quick ! ) .





So my Qnix was delivered yesterday ! Apart from the initial delay of just under a week from ExcellentCastle (who may have been waiting for Pixel Perfect stock) I can report absolutely zero pixel faults and negligible BLB (I've not done the full lights off test yet). He wrote "Faulty Electronics for spares or repair" and valued at $200 just as I requested, so Kudos to ExcellentCastle for that thumb.gif

I did have to pay import duty but it was only £30 GBP - so hardly bank-breaking smile.gif

Clocking at 120Hz gave green stripe artifacts but the monitor clocks to 110Hz fine.

The stand really wasn't as bad as I was expecting. Despite this I've got two of the following dual VESA stands on order

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Duronic-Double-Monitor-Bracket-Swivel/dp/B00AV70AEI/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1393931928&sr=8-3&keywords=vesa+monitor+stand.


One thing I wanted to do was run my work Dell laptop into it for software development but it doesn't seem to drive the monitor via DVI (even via the dock) The Qnix sits there going through its White-Red-Green-Blue test cycle. Apparently I can use the Display Port connector to do it so I've picked up a Display port to Dual link DVI adaptor on eBay for £24.50 inc shipping

Is there a way to sharpen up the text on the 27" monitor? I guess I'm too used to looking at the Retina display on my Chinese generic tablet (9.7" Sumvision Cyclone II 297) and the full HD AMOLED display on my Galaxy Note 3 which left me a little disappointed in the sharpness of the text in WIndows (compared to what I've seen on say an Apple 27" iMac). Is this something the glossy screens are better at (mine's a matte finish)?

As of today whenever I try to switch window mode/fullscreen mode in games the screen just turns black and I have to ctrl alt del and hit enter, then wait for it to get back into windows.

The same thing happens if I try to go back to 60hz from 120hz

I rebooted and installed newest Nvidia drivers.



No idea what else???

I had same issue but on 7970's playing BF4.

  • turn off iGPU
  • Disable Teamviewer

I've just received my Qnix from ExcellentCastle. There was a delay of 6 days from point of order to it actually leaving his warehouse. Once DHL had it, it was in UK in 2 days. There was a slight hitch with the courier on Friday so I had to wait till yesterday till I got it. So Ordered 21st Feb - delivered 3rd March. If I hadn't read so many stories of 2-3 days from order to arrival I would still have been impressed with just over a week from S.Korea.

Not sure what's going on but it would appear ExcellentCastle is having some issues.

If they don't send it soon, it might be worth taking the refund and trying another eBay seller. There's plenty of testimonials on this thread of various sellers and look at the spreadsheet on the first page.

Hooked up and used my new X-Star from dream-seller all night last night.

I appear to have 2 grey pixels, one bottom left, one top right, I only noticed them because I was looking. Minimal backlight bleed (appeared to fix with pressure) in the top left. There appears to be a "dark spot" (I'll try to photo later to get some opinions) on the right-center portion of the monitor. The spot only shows up on darker colors, essentially not visible on light or white colors. I cannot notice it when playing a game or watching a movie. Overall very satisfied with my $280 purchase.

I tried OCing to 120hz and there appeared to be a some red line screen tearing at times. I could not find the "reduce DVI frequency" (any tips on where this is?) in the amd options, and I have yet to enable the "LCD reduced" option within CRU. I still have some tinkering to do but I settled on a 96hz OC for now which seems to be stable, 120hz seems doable.

Thanks for the info.
I don't mind waiting a bit longer I'm in the process of moving at the moment anyway. They just haven't told me how long or why there is a delay, I'm waiting on a reply. Because of the time difference I can only get one reply a day.
They are being very polite and offered me a refund straight away though.

Update...
Just checked eBay its now Been dispatched.

You can't use an HDMI-DVI cable to make it work. Is HDMI your only output from your laptop? If so, you may be out of luck getting one of these to work at full res.

Hope you go the right kind; a DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI adapter (the one with an extra USB port for power). There are a lot of DisplayPort-> DVI adapters that don't work with these monitors. 24.50GBP doesn't quite sound expensive enough to be one of those, but hey, you might have found one cheaper.

Do you have cleartext turned on? It helps some by using subpixel rendering to increase sharpness.
