[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1524

post #15231 of 25887
So, has nobody seen this before, the cable that came with my monitor works fine but this replacement causes the monitor to flash white, black, red, green and blue in a test pattern.

The new cable works fine with my other Asus monitor, tried to google it but seems like for most people the monitor did this once and then it worked fine.

I can just use the cable that came with my monitor but it's super tight length wise and I can "only" hit 110hz, wanna see if another cable will let me hit the magical 120 thumb.gif

It's a dual link cable, right?

I'm in no "real" rush - but I would want to get on it as soon as possible.




Forum user @digitalforce bought one and should get his shortly.

Of course, it's a DVI-D, same as the one that came with the monitor. Doubt the monitor would even display anything with a single link?

this one right?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=221390816061&ssPageName=ADME:X:AAQ:US:1123

Apart from the HDMI and the different scaling - is there any other real differences?

Thats the one.

It uses a different panel, has a lower response time and has multiple inputs and alledged support for 120hz. Cant really speak for the actual performance itself until we get some reviews.

Here are the key differences:

#1 - This is a AH-VA panel vs a IPS/PLS. There haven't been any "mainstream" Korean VA panels. VA panels, in general, are supposed to have even better viewing angles and deeper blacks. Deeper blacks are the main reason I want to try this monitor out.

#2 - It has multiple inputs. And 1440p via HDMI 1.4

#3 - 10 bit color

#4 - Look like it will scale 720p/1080p so I'll be trying my Xbox 360 on it as well.

#5 - Muilt input overclock. Unless I'm mistaken, that will be a first.

I will be sure to post initial impressions the moment I get mine. Then, hopefully, detailed technical details. thumb.gif
