Just kidding.

Oh well, $15 isn't going to kill me and the free return shipping/perfect pixel is worth the $340.

It turns out we both could have done even better. They actually sell some you bid on, the final winning bid was $305. There is another up right now, the auctions are short also, I should of tried those first. mad.gif

I saw that. I just need to get mine here so I can get my $200 back for the other monitor I bought. Since we're coming up on Monday in Korea, I'm more likely to get it sooner than if my order was placed on a Tuesday. That is just the thought process...we'll see how it works out.

I should also note that ta.korea.global or whatever their name is said they would sell me a perfect pixel for $315 last month...After trying to get me to purchase outside of eBay. I called them out and they said put the offer in and they'd accept.

I put the offer in and 48 hours later, it expired. I'd be damned if they were getting my business after that. So, I just wanted to get it ordered...

I already have my HP ZR24W sold, the guy who is buying it even asked me last night how come I didn't bring it. Confusion in the communication, but oh well, he will get it after I get my Qnix, assuming I get a good one. Fingers crossed.

If you have just made a 120hz custom resolution the same goes for this also...Turn Vsync on in any game and turn the graphics options down to low so that you can hit high FPS!....if you hit anything over 60 fps up to a max of 120fps then your custom resolutions can be seen in games...sorted!

Yes the sreen will appear darker when you run a higher refresh rate as the gamma shifts higher which make the screen appear darker!...you are more then welcome to use my 96hz and 120hz ICC profiles linked below...these will completely correct the higher gamma shift ( darker looking screen) that you are seeing running at higher refresh rates!.....i calibrated theses ICC profiles at a brightness of 200 cd/m which is on the BRI+ button 18 clicks up from a black screen for 120hz and 17 clicks up for the 96hz ICC profile...i also recommended using yasamoka Color Sustainer to apply and control your ICC profiles which you can download from the link below...

Also Sean use my optimised timings below just for your 120hz custom resolution which should lower your pixel clock at 120hz and give you a better signal!.....and enjoy your New monitor Sean thumb.gif

Thanks as always Lawson! Yes, I did get a green/valid bar on the bottom... So I guess I'm good to go!

1) AMD cards benefit from a 10-bit LUT (more on that later if you're interested to know) which means they avoid banding with ICC color profiles. Windows loader is 8-bit, throwing out 2 bits AMD cards could use.

2) Windows does not set back your color profile if a game loaded in fullscreen resets the color profile. You need a 3rd-party loader to "lock" color profiles by loading them back whenever they are reset.

Thanks for that info.. so, which 3rd party loader do I use? How do I obtain it?

The tool that Lawson linked you to, of course wink.gif
post #15786 of 25893
Some great info guys - always impressed with how much people know on here! biggrin.gif

Looking at possibly pulling the trigger on a Multi QX2710 or a True10 atm. Can anyone with one of these mons confirm that they work OK with PS3/Xbox at 1080p?

Edit: Saw the mini-review From Digital force a few days ago where the True10 displayed lines at 1080p with Xbox - hoping this isn't the case with all of them.

LOL, but of course!

Annd he associated the ICC Profile.. and IT WAS BRILLIANT!

Thanks for the help guys...

Unrelated... My triple monitor stand comes with bolts that are either too huge, too big, or too small to use the spacers...

See pic of mount with 'smaller' screws, that are still not small enough:



Image of smaller screw in spacer:



And then, this.. After taking apart my Qnix.. I noticed this incredible bend in the frame.. It's quite remarkable.. There's no way I just did that, right? It's the flaw of these monitors, and why they're cheap, right? Tell me I'm right please, and that I didn't just bend this thing...

Apparently it doesn't run 1080P properly.

That looks like a bidding page. So price is not exact. They look like they are selling a seemingly "PERFECT" version to the highest bidder.
