[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1531

post #15301 of 25893
I,v been following this thread for a few weeks and I'm very interested in this monitors.
I'm also keeping an eye at the glossy vs matte vs tempered thing. In the future I want to buy a glossy one, but first I want to know how these panels compare to the ones in the past.

http://www.accessorieswhole.com/qx2710-led-evolution-ll-glossy-27-2560x1440-samsung-pls-27in-pc-monitor.html

Another website which sells a "Glossy" one for under $350. $ 319 is pretty tempting, but I first want to know if this is a real glossy one.

Thanks for sharing all your experiences with these monitors. Very helpful people out here thumb.gif

Hello, thank you for your purchase.

This message regards to the purchase you made for the monitor.
We have been having many trouble going through the monitor for Quality check due to so many orders.
I have returned many monitors to the manufacturer and will be getting restocked tomorrow. Your time waiting for this delay is very much appreciated.

I hope you can kindly understand that we are trying our best to serve best customer service as well as the best quality product.

The shipment will be made right away from tomorrow in order. We have entered the tracking number for your purchase, to keep the transactions in order received. This has not been shipped out yet.

If you’d like to cancel the transaction, we will do that for you right away!
I am truly sorry about the late update of this transaction.
Thank you so much.

Yours sincerely

I ordered Sunday and just got this message from dream seller...Sigh

I am kind of worried although I do not wanna cancel my transaction just yet. I emailed him back stating my concern and asked for my panel to be double checked for quality. (Fingers crossed).. I also asked if it would actually be sent tomorrow as I've seen other receive this same message.

I've been chasing my QNIX from dream-seller, and been told it would ship today by 6pm - so fingers crossed.

It might display a test pattern. FYI, DVI-D can come in two flavours - DL-DVI-D, and SL-DVI-D. Your cable has pins that look like this, right?

#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
The sellers may well be mistaken. There have been "125hz overclock" multi models before (and even marketed as such) which have been proven otherwise. Thanks for keeping us informed and make sure to validate your overclock! It would be interesting to see the results.

Having just seen this post, what standard should they be, and any value in buying a high quality cable (any recommendations )

I may need a longer cable anyway.

Thanks

What's the difference between this model and the other one? This is a TRUE10 one vs the others that aren't
- this model is upgraded from QX2710 DP Multi
- it supports virtual 4K ( very useful to graphic desinger )
- Eyecare monitor ( Low blue light mode , flicker free) - as far as I know , only BenQ release this function.
- 120Hz overclockable
- 3H premium anti-glare film

Does this one, as said in the description have HDMI and other ports apart from DVI-D?
- there are 4 ports ( HDMI, DVI-D, RGB,DP )

Also can I have a MATTE finish please?
- yes, this model has matte screen

thank you

Sincerely yours
Red-Cap

Hi,

After Screening this Club for a while i've decided to get my self one, and managed to find a good X-star and arrived today.
Overclocked successfully over Nvidia control panel to 120 Hertz. and implemented using Windows monitor Settings.

However, I am facing a strange ass problem, once i connected the monitor for the first time, my pc started to suffer from freezing spikes every 15 seconds, the spike last for 3 seconds then everything returns to normal, checked the task manager for any suspicious Software, still nothing to see, that really blow my mind, before using the monitor everything was fine ??

Furthermore, i've noticed that the colors in my monitor needs alot of calibration, in comparison to my second monitor (HP IPS panel), the white in my X-star looks so much dark and almost Green !!
i've tried to install the Color profiles mentioned in OP, but most of the links there are broken, could anyone please direct me to a downloadable color profile for 120Hz.

Hint, i am on SLI if that could matter.

Sorry for bad English, trying my best tongue.gif

Hi, We are really sorry for all the inconveniences.

I totally understand you are upset with us, I am deeply sorry for that.
Unfortunately almost half of the monitors we have received from the manufacture were defected ones,
there has been continuous back-and-forth process.
Therefore we only could ship out few monitors a day, there has been a long cue waiting for our monitors.
Your monitor will be shipped within this week according to our tech.
If you are not happy with that we will immediately cancel and refund for you.

Again, I apologize for any inconvenience and hope you could kindly understand.
We always try our best to send out the best quality products as well as best service to our buyers.
Our customer's satisfactory means everything to us.
We will continuously improve our service for better business.

Thank you"

I uninstalled the patches and CRU then went in EVGA precision: go to the configuration menu (gear icon top left) then configure. It brings up a pixel clock slider that automatically sets your refresh rate for you. No patches, CRU, or even a restart, required for me. Automatically sets the refresh rate in nvidia control panel and in your display control panel (right click+screen resolution+adv settings).

Again, this could be common knowledge by now so I'm sorry if I'm all excited over here for something that everyone knows about already lol. I couldn't go past 96 hz without a faint slightly transparent red smear/line about a half inch wide showing up on the right side of the monitor. So I just keep it at 92 hz.


Without using the toasyX Clock Patchers that modifies the NVIDIA video driver to remove the 330 MHz pixel clock limit for dual-link DVI and the 400 MHz limit for SLI ..And the AMD Clock Patcher that modifies the AMD/ATI video driver to remove the 330 MHz pixel clock limit for dual-link DVI...Without using ToasyX patches anything over About 96hz not be working as i don't not believe EVGA precision patches the Nvidia or AMD drivers pixel clock limits!...and without this you simply will not get much higher than about 96hz....NVCP may report your higher refresh rates are working as in the picture below..yt windows will not will not be seeing your higher custom without using using toasyx patches!

Also in picture you can clearly see that NVCP is reporting 120hz however windows can not see it!..that picture was taken when i was using CRU to create my Custom refresh rates and attempting to keep Nvidia Geforce expereance installed!...However CRU uses EDID overrides that conflict with Nvidia Geforce expereance so you ether have to uninsatll Nvidia Geforce expereance or import the blank-extension.dat into CRU at the time of creating your Custom resolutions if you are using Nvidia! ...also its worth nothing that the below picture was taken using CRU with the blank-extension.dat imported into CRU!... However the blank-extension.dat is far from a perfect fix attempting to keep Nvidia Geforce expereance install while using CRU EDID overrides which still results in windows on many many occasions simply refusing to see your custom resolutions...which is why we now use a monitor driver using Nvidia cards which allows using NVCP to create our custom resolutions and them to be seen by windows and therefore in games without any conflicts what so ever!

I believe what you see in the picture below with NVCP reporting 120hz yet windows not being able to see it!... which means that neither will your games!... will be happening to you using EVGA precision with no driver patch...if you have set a 120hz profile in EVGA precision open up a game and turn Vsync on in game graphic settings use the lowest detail settings in the game so you are able to hit high FPS... now if your game reports 120 fps it is all workng fine!...however without patching the drivers which i am sure EVGA precision does not do then you will never hit 120FPS in any game using Vsync becaurse your custom resolutions without driver patches are simply not working.

Edit :However i would be very interested if it did in fact patch the drivers correctly as it would be another option for us all..i am going to do some research now on EVGA precision..thanks for the info thumb.gif

Edit 2:- I have found a post from Toasyx and now believe i was right and it does not work at least for SLI users and it seems it only works at lower refresh rates as i thought...ToasyX post below concerning the use of EVGA precision...it seems it only is using the regular patch and your refresh rates will indeed be capped at around 96hz if your using SLI...will do some more reading about though thumb.gif

More info here!

http://overlordforum.com/topic/452-evga-pixel-clock-oc/

Quote from Toasyx on EVGA precision below:-

The patch is still needed in three cases:

1. SLI needs the full patch to work properly beyond 400 MHz pixel clock.
2. Some 500-series cards are limited to 400 MHz without the full patch. 600-series and newer cards are not limited.
3. CRU needs the regular patch to add resolutions beyond 330 MHz pixel clock. The regular patch won't break HDCP.
600-series and newer cards without SLI don't need the patch when using the NVIDIA control panel or the EVGA pixel clock feature.



Edit 3:- Another quote from that forum below

"So I got my Tempest in just a few hours ago and the first thing I did was try this utility to see what it could do. I have found that it looks like it let you go to 120 +, but in reality it caps at 96hz. even when I select 120 or 128 (129 is where my panel starts to flicker) it says it is pushing a 480+ MHz pixel clock, but if I toggle the selected display to my old monitor and back, it shows 96Hz framerate at a 390MHz pixel clock. Off to try Toasty's now!"

"Never had to call support" - there's the reason you have a "good view" on the company.
I've bought: Laptops, screens, motherboards and soundcards. Guess what - every single item listed (and yes my family and I bought MULTIPLE variations of them at DIFFERENT points in our lives -> I'm talking in the last 15years) -> they ALL went bad, they ALL were badly treated by Asus' customer support and they ALL were pretty much chucked out in the bin.

I stand firmly and very much true to my "analysis" or "thoughts" about Asus.
I heard in the USA it's better because they care more about the customer, but in the UK - not a flying monkey could be given. I even went to trading standards to take them to court over a certain item. When I was told: "As they're a Taiwanese company, you'll have to contact their HQ via a letter informing them of your decisions you want to take legally" I gave up.
That's how much I hate Asus. Crap-sus sorry.
