GTX 770 SLI, I have the muscle.

Hello,

First thing first, glad with the monitor but I found a problem with it.

I couldn't find any bad pixels but I would like to ask if you experienced strange thick lines mostly visible only on black color or really dark color on stock frequency. On black parts of pictures and with high brightness, this becomes very disturbing. It is visible only on theleft side of the LCD and visibility rises with user looking more from the bottom of the LCD (like when you have eyes in height of lower QNIX logo). Lines are there during bios and start up too.

It seems more people are having this problem, is it fixable? Or do I have to send it back, beside that the monitor clocks over good to 120hz without any dead pixels or serious backlight bleeding.

Sent this to the seller, got this back as a response..


Hi

Sorry for your inconvenience.
It is a kind of backlight bleeding.
As we said, due to the panel characteristics, the monitor could have some backlight bleeding.
Hope for your understanding.
Could you kindly try to lower down the brightness of monitor?


If there is any issue, please let us know.
We always do our best to support our buyer.
Thank you.

lol. it's so obvious the korean seller you bought from is trying to dodge the issue and hope you don't do anything about it. which korean seller did you buy it from?

check your cable. try another cable. open up panel and make sure there are no loose connections inside. otherwise you're stuck trying to RMA it back to south korea.

or try the tape method as a last resort and hope it was something pressuring the panel to make those lines.

Bought it from accessorieswhole, don't have another cable to test it with. I prefer not opening this monitor myself (0% experience with opening monitors), so best to send it back for RMA?

Bleh, this sucks..

I am looking at a QX2710.I know these monitors cannot be "dead pixel/ black light bleed" free or else they wont be A- panels. What I need is one that's not dead on arrival and does not have a cluster of dead pixels.

I have a couple of options when it comes to buying them which one would you recommend ?

1. Amazon -
http://www.amazon.com/QNIX-QX2710-Evolution-LED-Monitor/dp/B00BUI44US/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1393993758&sr=1-1&keywords=qnix
Even though the seller ships it from S Korea, I have amazon customer service to back me up if something goes wrong.

2. Ebay-
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ultimate-Perfect-Pixel-27-QNIX-QX2710-Evo-ll-Matte-QHD-2560x1440-PLS-Monitor-/271375013937?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item3f2f361831
I chose this seller over the others because he clearly says 0 dead /stuck pixel. Would you recommend this seller or any one else ?

3. Newegg
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2RY0X59885
I have bought a lot of things from new egg, but this one is from an international seller. I would rather face newegg for issues than the seller or else its the same as getting it from ebay!

4. ipsledmonitor.com
If I go for this, would you recommend the 3 yr warranty since its within US ?


Thanks in advance !

Hi which monitor to get depends on you....however some things to consider....they are all A- panels there is mainly 2 reason for this one is some have dead stuck pixels...others have dead/stuck pixels and back light bleed...if you get one with dead stuck pixels you will not be able to fix the dead pixels...you may be able if lucky to fix the stuck pixels by going to you tube and finding a stuck pixel film to run...but it is not guaranteed that this method will move the stuck pixel..but some have had success using this method...however you can always fix back light bleed with a little confidence and taking your time and using my guide..

So you choices are as follows..buy a random monitor which will most probably have Back light bleed as most have!..also you and could have dead/stuck pixels meaning you have dead/stuck pixel plus BLB!..or buy the ultimate pixel perfect Qinx from excellentcastle..i personally would buy the from ultimate pixel perfect from excellentcastle and buy a 3 year Square trade insurance policy as i did..because Back light bleed can be fixed 100% guaranteed if you have the confidence to take the monitor apart and fix it...we have found the main course of back light bleed is the fact that the monitor is sitting in a bent metal frame this can be fixed very easily if you follow my guide you just need the confidence to take the monitor apart...the tape fix does NOT work most of the as all that does is tries to do is seal the gaps of the bent metal frame...once the frame is straightened there is no need for any tape as you have fixed the source of the problem instead of plugging the gaps...so they are the facts and now the choice is yours...

I went the perfect pixel route and fixed my BLB 100% and i could not be happier because i now have an A+ Screen for only £200!...if you want to go the perfect pixel route as i did i would only use excellentcastle at this point in time as we have found that he has constantly been supplying pixel perfect monitors if you buy his ultimate pixel perfect..i know what i would do its perfect pixel for me every time and fix the BLB...i hope this helps thumb.gif

Edit: i would contact excellentcastle first before you buy his ultimate pixel perfect monitor as it would seem he has had some trouble acquiring them which means you may have to wait a week or so...but if you want a perfect pixel monitor it would be well worth the week or so wait!..as many of our members i am sure will tell you that have bought his ultimate pixel perfect monitor from him! ...As they have been more than pleased with there monitors!

Hi you are seeing these bands from the back light bleeding which you have in the lower left hand corner and the seller will not exchange the monitor with BLB!...as for him telling you its "due to the panel characteristics" is B.S however you have bought an A- panel and most if not all have BLB to some degree...however this can be fixed 100% with taking your time and having a little confidence in yourself...if you click on the link below you will find a few post of mine on that page that will guide you though the process of permanently fixing your BLB you do not need any tape also because you are fixing the the source of the problem instead of filling the gaps from NOT straightening the frame...BTW it is not a hard job at all to fix and straighten the frame it only took me only 30-40 mins to complete the whole job that includes removing the panel straightening the frame and refitting the panel back into the case.. good luck!..thumb.gif

I hope so, I'll first try to find someone in The Netherlands who has experience with opening these monitors and fixing this problem with payment. If I can't find anyone, then I'll try myself.

To be sure, by following those steps, those lines will dissapear?

Thanks in advance mate.
