2 - Yes, I got it from excellentcastle and I am going to try to return it with a pic of the Xbox artifacts wink.gif


It's a shame really, this is a GORGEOUS monitor both on the outside and colors, blacks, uniformity etc. And seriously, Xbox 360 looks fantastic on it even at 720p.

Sorry, with family stuff, it's hard to keep up on the thread. Thanks for the rep on those who gave it. Any other questions on the True10? I am going to test the Overlord Tempest and then decide between that and my Qnix glossy. thumb.gif

Were there any dead pixels since you didn't get the pixel perfect one. Thanks again

Good to hear! Thanks for the reply. smile.gif Also got the PP one but as I read some posts they might all be the same batch eventually.

Also, thank you lawson67 for all the great posts! Already favorited(?) some of them so I can get rid of the BLB straight away (if applicable), also the CRU files are a great help I expect. smile.gif

Hi all! I got a problem with my X-Star DP2710.

It looks like my monitor is capable to do 120hz without artifacts or green horizontal lines. However, top-right of screen becomes darker and dark columns appear when I increase my refresh rate. It is most obvious at dark green or gray colors. This is picture at 120hz:



Does anyone here also suffer from this issue? Can tape mod fix it?

I am glad i upgraded my PSU from my 750w Seasonic to a Corsair RM1000w...Also i bought one those plugs that measure wattage being drawn from the wall!...ruining heaven 4.0...And with 2x R9 290 cards ruining in crossfire and not overclocked it was mostly pulling around around 680 -700 watts and peaked at 756.9 watts!....i could not be more happier with these cards and and my system set up!.. I can now further enjoy my Qnix while gaming at 2560x1440 at 120hz with Ultra Quality settings turned on! biggrin.gif

No tape cant fix this it is screen uniformity from over clocking the monitor...some have it worse than others!...you can greatly reduce it by using optimized timings for you 120hz profile and sometimes even a cable change or a DVI-D port change can even reduce it even further!...However all i would recommend you do right now is to use my timings in the picture below for your 120hz profile!...don't apply these timings for your 96hz profile leave them at Auto....Also you are more than welcome to use my ICC profiles posted below which will completely correct the higher gamma shift ( darker screen ) seen when over clocking the monitor!.. i calibrated these ICC profiles at a brightness of 200 cd/m...which from a dark screen is about 18 clicks up in the BRI+ button and 17 clicks up for the 96hz profile ...these will also help with your overclocked screen uniformity!....i also recommended using yasamoka Color Sustainer to apply and control your ICC profiles which you can download from the link below

First off, they are nearly identical except as noted below. The best way to describe is listing pros and cons:



Overlord Tempest OC

+ 110hz Overclock
+ No frame skipping
+ Gorgeous image out of the box. No calibration needed
+ Deep blacks/nice colors
+ Adjustable stand with tilt/height adjustment
+ Minimal reflections on glossy surface
- Price (~$550)
- Hard to find
- A bit more input lag than Qnix



Qnix Glossy/Glass

+110hz Overclock
+ No frame skipping
+ Gorgeous image but calibration needed (see below)
+ Deep blacks and amazing colors (Especially with glass as I hear most glass blacks are "gray")
+ PERFECT panel. No BLB or dead pixel
+ Price ($359 on Amazon)
- Reflective in bright room (My office has shades and is great)
- Needs pro calibration -- Luckily it looks AMAZING after my i1 Display Pro did it's magic


Well folks, tough decision. Both amazing monitors, trying to decide which one to keep. I have gotten so picky looking at these monitors, they are all fantastic! tongue.gif

I am debating on taking apart my Qnix and removing the glass. I think it's glossy beneath the glass but I am not sure...

Thanks for the impressions +rep.
If it was me it would be the QNIX, SIMPLY because of the HUGE price difference.
Heck you could even almost buy two QNIX's for the price of one Overlord.

( also multiple inputs, I thought they were only HDMI )

Also, when he had it set to 120hz, it didn't look smooth at all, and even at 90, my 60hz still looked smoother.

( and for reference, my roomie has a 120hz asus monitor, so I know how 120hz is supposed to look )


should i go for it, or just keep with my tried and tested crossover.

I would keep your monitor.
The version your friend has is the multiple port one - just like the new true10 model did.
As you'll know now that no matter what the manufacturer says, the multiple port ones do NOT overclock past 60hz - and thus drop frames. Long story short, you would be buying a 1440p, 60hz, multiple input, 8bit monitor.
If you wanted that, you might as well buy the True10 instead. At least you'll have better colour reproduction.
Other than that, get the normal single input (I'ts DVI not HDMI) QNIX that OC's to at least 96hz.

No Throttling!..the line in the middle jammed up at the top was the one hour benchmark!

This greatly interests me - 750w was being pulled through your system. GOD DAYME. Not sure how to feel about that, if I ever get my 2nd GTX680....I MIGHT have to upgrade too...which again is something I don't really want to do.

As of right now, I am sticking with my Qnix. Even with the glass, I have been playing games tonight and I LOVE IT. I just wish I could tell if it was matte or glossy behind the glass without tearing it apart.. mad.gif

Glad to hear your son is ok - and LOL about the spyware.
Get yourself ESET smart security and Malbytes anti-malware pro. Best two things I've gotten for my PC (software wise) - period.

Don't know if that will ever come out really.

I would THINK the tape mod would help - looks like glare/bleeding. Does it happen on all colours? Especially black?
EDIT: Lawson nailed it.

I'm really chomping at the bit to order, now I know to get a straight forward QX2710, not a True 10.

I've messaged both ExcellentCastle, ta-korea.global - but not sure I can await replys, any you've all ordered before, so its:-

or

Who would you go with?

Excellent guarantees no dead pixels.
ta - can't guarantee it, but if they get back to you MAYBE they will guarantee it for you.

For this, you pay the premium £20 extra for the no dead pixel policy. I would pay it and thus go excellent castle.

Buy one of these watt usage plugs Dubbed then you know know for sure...see what wattage is being pulled now and you will know for sure if you need to upgrade your PSU!...it was only 12 Quid from ebay link below!

Edit- :This power meter plug can measure up to 3.7 KW!... which i think is pretty impressive!
