Figured I would take the refund, can't be bothered waiting for another monitor and it almost covers my £35 customs charge.

I also bought a new DVI-D cable but it doesn't work with the qnix, the monitor just loops through a test pattern of different colours. Cable works fine on my other monitor, has anyone experienced this before?
What was the price difference between his perfect pixel and normal monitors?

I sent an offer and the description clearly states - no dead pixels.

£196, it was the same price as a 'regular' qnix so I'm not too fussed, it's rare that I have a fully black screen and they are near the bottom of my monitor so not too noticeable.

I do think the 3 dead pixels in a row were probably caused in transit, my monitor was thrown around customs for over a week and was opened to work out the customs charge...

£196, it was only £3 more than a normal SE model from accessorieswhole, who were the cheapest at the time.

at the weekend the pixel perfect was £3 more-ish than the standard. Though they upped the Pixel perfect monitor up from £197 to £215 as of today.

Yeah that's really weird. Like I said before, I'm using the driver patch + CRU method and I'm getting 100Hz in all the games that I have installed. Even if the refresh rate is not indicated in the in-game video options (ex - 2560 x 1440 @ X Hz,) I can clearly tell whether my game is running at 60Hz or at 100Hz, as 60Hz feels like I'm dragging my mouse through mud and 100Hz is smooth as silk. Vysnc is an excellent indicator of what the refresh rate is. If I enable vsync and look up at the sky or at a wall for example, my FPS shoots up to 100FPS and stays there. I've tested in this in each and ever game that I've installed. Vsync essentially caps the max FPS to the refresh rate in case you didn't know (100Hz = 100FPS, 96Hz = 96FPS, 60Hz = 60FPS, etc.,). Anyhow, I agree that the OP should be updated with a clearer and more up-to-date set of instructions. I might actually give your method a try because the particular driver patch I'm using (ToastyX's full patch for SLI) borks HDCP so I'm unable to watch Blurays on my computer unless I stream using MakeMKV -> VLC. Lastly, thanks for all your contributions to this thread, lawson.




Yes your games and indeed windows will on some occasions will see your custom refresh rates with Nvidia Geforce Experience installed using CRU on that particular reboot...however on many many occasions it will not see them! and these are facts if you are using EDID overrides from CRU with Nvidia GeForce Experience installed!..Also i did not write CRU toastyX did!..And below is a Quote from toastyX from the CRU download page which i will also post link at the bottom of the page as i believe you will benefit from reading it!...you don't seem to believe what i am saying but maybe you will when you read what the author of CRU has to say as regards using EDID overrides while keeping Nvidia Geforce Experience installed! ... Also the picture i posted above where NVCP is seeing the custom resolution and windows is not seeing it the very conflict that toasyX is referring in his quote below from his CRU download page

"Note for NVIDIA users: GeForce Experience is known to cause issues with EDID overrides such as resolutions being listed in the NVIDIA control panel but not in the Windows screen resolution settings. Either uninstall GeForce Experience, or enable the extension block and import this file: blank-extension.dat"

http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-Custom-Resolution-Utility-CRU

Also i have known how Vsync works with refresh rates since i was about 12 years old!..also its what i used to workout if the monitor driver method could be seen in games!..and guess what it could 100% of the time!.. unlike CRU with Nvidia Geforce Experience installed...but thank for reminding me!...Also what you think CRU is enabling you to do that NVCP can not do just as well if not better with a monitor driver installed i do not know?...Also if you think that CRU can make you refresh rates or resolutions that games can see only from CRU!..and not NVCP with a monitor driver inf installed you are very much mistaken!

I hope this helps thumb.gif

Ok, good.

When sellers offer to refund the "pixel perfect" price difference (and only that) to buyers who bought pixel perfect but didn't get it, it's a scam. If buyers accept a refund for a pixel perfect monitor that isn't pixel perfect, then they ought to levy a (hefty) penalty, which is seems you managed to do.

Where did you buy yours and from where?
Not a "he" but a "they" - been replied to by different people, by the same seller.

EDIT:
Found a video about the red cap seller:

Bought mine from accessorieswhole on ebay!

Where's info on that one?
I'm in no "real" rush - but I would want to get on it as soon as possible.

Look how many sellers I've contacted....
