[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1663

Yeah, sorry if I seemed a bit arsey, I just hate hindsight!!

If I decline then it will be returned to sender, and i will be charged for it, but it could take up to 45 days for the parcel to actually be sent back from my country. Would just be easier to pay to return it.

Could you recommend any sites for selling???

CRU is basically an editor and doesn't need to be present for custom resolutions to work, so you can replace it without affecting the existing configuration.

Well it's here. My Qnix has arrived from TA-global today which I ordered on the 10th for $325 (PP) after some delays because of quality/supply issues. (other sellers were having the same issues around this time) I have been very happy about the prompt communication/updates with Ta-Global whenever I asked.

It shipped last Friday by EMS which USPS took over, arrived in US the next day, sat in customs over the weekend and it arrived to me here in the upper Midwest. I have not opened it up yet since I have lots of things to get done. On the side of the box, I noticed a sticker indicating that it is a single input model(fingers still crossed) and noticed a small hole on the bottom of the box which does not look too bad. Well I will report back later tonight

it's funny how perfect pixel is not perfect any more it can be 0-1 pixel/stuck pixel.

It actually depends on the seller. Some sellers have a pixel perfect policy that allows dead pixels. There are others that have a true pixel perfect pixel policy, where they guarantee 0 dead or stuck pixels.

I didn't run it through the frameskip test yet; I'll try that when I get home and double check things, too.

So I didn't get any hits on the stand question, and I did check out the monoprice stands. The issue with those is that the arm isn't going to extend out far enough to actually work with my desk. Has anyone tried a free standing mount, or something like this?

You need to run it through the frameskipping test. There are lots of monitors that seemingly overclock to 120Hz that people got excited about, and then they find out the monitors are skipping frames.

Having probably owned one of the best overclocking monitors (Catleap 2B), for one of the longest periods of time (just about 2 years), I have to say that overclocking isn't the reason why I enjoy the monitor so much. Keeping the overclock alive through driver updates, rehacking and all, dealing with breaking HDCP... I have to say that it's not all peaches and cream. And I don't have to deal with the finicky pixel clock settings to optimize against image retention, gamma shifts, tinting and darkening images. Hence why I say overrated. Not that overclocking is worthless (far from it, it's amazing that you can overclock it) just that I think people value it more than it's actually worth.
75hz might work at a lower resolution; there are a lot of monitors (including my Dell U2312hm/U2311h) have monitor modes that support higher refresh rates, but at a lower resolution. If someone still has a True10, it might be worth testing that.

I agree that it can be a pain, but it's gotten so much better. Nowadays I just load the Qnix driver when I install Windows, and every time I update drivers, I just run the full patcher (because I have SLI) and then redo my custom refresh rates in the Nvidia control panel. Once you know what you're doing it's very easy now.

At least 8 different multi-input monitors have been oc'd and proven to frame skip by multiple people, including the True 10. Testing multi-input monitors for frame skipping is a waste of time, as is trying to overclock them.


96hz provides judder free/much smoother media playback when used with MPC-HC+MAD VR and Power DVD+Re-Clock.

I ordered one, refused it at delivery, took 8 days or so to convince the seller for a full refund, as they wanted postage money back (over $130).
If it hadn't left Korea you're in Luck, if not you'll have to convince (via an eBay case) to fully refund you the money. Now it's up to you if you want to open it and receive it, but a few are guaranteed so far: it doesn't oc, and has input lag of 30ms and doesn't display 1080p Xbox display. However it is better on colours, has multiple inputs and is a faux 10bit.

Ps. I'm in the UK

Nice. How did you convince the seller to give you a full refund?

I mean, I kind of understand that I'd need to pay for shipping costs.

I'm in UK too

They really need to stop selling the True 10 monitors as 120hz, its false advertising.

Search this thread for my posts and see what happened. There's no reason why you should pay shipping (see below)

yeah that's why red cap speed selling them I presume
post #16630 of 25893
I hear ya.

To be honest I'm going to push for a full refund anyway, including shipping costs. It says that its default refresh rate is 75hz. If I start this up, and I get frame skipping even at 75, then as far as I'm concerned it is not what I ordered.
