Going to make the leap in buying a Korean monitor.

Just on the fence with a few things:
-X-star vs QNIX - seems like there's no difference at all, but more people have QNIX ones. Any developments since? Would you rather prefer to buy one over the other?
-Backlight bleeding + dead pixel: Has anyone managed to contact the sellers and asked them to personally check it to make sure there's 0 dead pixels? I don't think my mini OCD will be able to stand a single dead pixel (yeah I know....)
-OC'ing it seems like 96hz is very much plausible
-Xbox360 connection is impossible -> sad face
-Nvidia SLI patch - is it really needed?
-Anyone purchased it from ebay via an "OFFER"? I saw people buying them for $270 (via the form) - how did you guys manage that?

Thanks for the help inn advance smile.gif
Really want to get this monitor, but not face problems with it and use it for as long as possible. (literally purchased another GTX680 yesterday, in order to run 1440p comfortably on my system)
I hope customs don't go crazy over it - already had one ebay seller say they can mark it as a gift for me.

Hey Dubbed!

* I don't think there is any difference between Qnix and X-star besides the bezel/plastic around the panel
* BLB and dead pixel, you can try to neogoiate with the sellers. I personally bought a glossy Qnix from here. It overclocks to 110hz and has NO BLB! GORGEOUS if you like glossy:

http://www.amazon.com/QNIX-QX2710-Evolution-2560x1440-GLOSSY/dp/B00CAKEE1E/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394458719&sr=8-1&keywords=glossy+qnix

* Yes, patch is needed for SLI
* I have done offer as well on some monitors. Like all Korean panels, it's a gamble. I've only had one Qnix I didn't like. It was matte and had HORRIBLE BLB but you can fix it as well (video in OP)

Good luck! These monitors are awesome! thumb.gif

thanks for the info dude - would buy from Amazon.com - but I'm in the UK - thus buying from Korea would be the same principle redface.gif

Im looking at getting one of these too. Quick question:
The selling page says it does not support laptops. How bout a Alienware 14? I recently got mine and it doesn't have a DVI output but I've found a Display-port to DVI and also a HDMI to DVI, would these do the job? and if so which is a better choice DisplayPort or HDMI?

Also whats the difference between these two:
http://www.amazon.com/AmazonBasics-HDMI-Adapter-Cable-Meters/dp/B001TH7T2U/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_z
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002ISVI3U/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?ie=UTF8&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Thx
Isaac
The second *should* do the job, but there is at least one report where it did not work, and that this version was needed instead. I still can't parse why that would be the case, but whatever. The second one I linked is $10 cheaper anyways.

The first one will not do the job. HDMI isn't compatible with dual link DVI, so you won't be able to output 2560x1440@60hz. The most that can be realistically expected is 2560x1440@30hz, via a custom resolution in Windows. You may be able to push beyond that, but don't get your hopes up.

Hi Totally Dubbed i believe i can answer some questions for you!...on the subject of X-star or Qnix the samsung PLS versions they are both the same only difference has been the label on the front bezial with one saying Qnix one saying X-Star...however over the last week or so we have seen a new Qnix that has come out which some sellers clam to be able to overclockable even with what appears to be an on-board scaler with multi input ports!.. i shall link this below... however i am a bit sceptical weather it can really overclock and would want to wait until someone else buys one like NCX

As for pixel perfect the seller "excellentcastle" has constantly been delivering pixel perfect monitors to our members who have bought his ultimate pixel perfect monitors and if you don't want to take the gamble of reciving a monitor that could or could not have dead/stuck pixels and you want pixel a perfect monitor then buy from him and you will be fine...link below to one of them also...

As for SLI yes you must patch and you must use the full patch nvlddmkm-patcher-full.exe if you plan to over clock your monitor...Also i would advise you that if you have nvidia do not use CRU to make your custom resolutions use NVCP and my monitor driver method instead!... CRU uses EDID overrides which conflict with Nvidia experience and also Samsung Magician...the only way you can use CRU with nvidia is to uninstall Nvidia experience and Samsung Magician if installed or import the blank-extension.dat into CRU when you are making your custom resolutions which should allow you carry on using Nvidia experience and Samsung Magician...however using the blank-extension.dat in CRU is far from perfect and at time windows will still refuse to see your custom resolutions!...But using the monitor driver method you will make your custom resalutions in NVCP and have NO conflicts at all and every game will see your custom resolutions!...and also when you update your drivers you will not need to worry about Nvidia Geforce experience being reinstalled...i hope this helps thumb.gif

The new Qnix below we do not know much about as yet

I'll contact the seller now! +rep

After making the jump to a full tower many many moons ago, I cant ever go back to a smaller case. Just installing the motherboard is so much easier. In a perfect world, everyone would have space to use these bad boys.

I made up my mind. I am going to order a new Qnix for scientific purposes. I don't care about most features but I want to try out the new A-VHA or whatever panel wink.gif I will be sure to give a full report when I receive the monitor. I am sure even if I don't end up keeping it, someone here can benefit from a low price.


Lawson, no worries mate. Just wanted to offer. I just wondered if I set the value to $50, if that would help tongue.gif
