Fingers crossed.

lol... he countered offered me @ a whopping discount of $4.98 ($315). Yeahhhhhh, no thanks. Guess I'll just wait till the market is flooded again and these are back down to the $270 range.

He offered me $345 on the ultimate pixel version. Should I do it?

Tell him yes, but only if he actually checks the monitor instead of simply slapping a sticker on it wink.gif

So I bought a X-Star DP2710 (D-DVI only) about two months ago. I also just bought a QNIX QX2710 (Multi Port) yesterday. I'm noticing the QNIX is a little brighter and the whites are much whiter than the X-Star. This is with the brightness turned all the way up on both and the contrast all the way up on the QNIX. Also, the whites on the X-Star are not as crisp and almost have a slight off white yellow look to it.

Any suggestions on getting these two monitors to match. I tried the asus-pb278q color profile on both monitors and that helped a bit but not exactly am exact match.

I see a few of you have been waiting a long time for ta-korea deliveries, can you let me know how long?

Mines 10 days since ordering and still not shipped, but I get the feeling some of you have been waiting longer? but with good results?

Thanks

I ordered mine from Ta-korea global on the 10th for $325 and it showed up on the 25th. Ebay's estimated shipping time stated anywhere between the 14th and the 25th. Once the item shipped, it got to me in the US in only 4 days counting the weekend. The monitor was exactly as I ordered, single input. No unusually dark or bright spots, some minor BLB in one of the lower corner sections which is what I expected to be a bit of.

The only issue I could find with is with the central lower bezel which bows out quit a bit and i can see the edges of the actual panel though the gap. I can slide a couple sheets of paper in the gap. This is not big deal and it seems like a easy fix just by bending it a bit which will involve taking off the bezel. Another annoyance is the colour, the blues seem a little off (especially on OCN) and some colours seem to be over saturated. I seen a bunch of ICC profiles that Lawson posted and will give those a go. i have been using around 5-7 clicks up on the brightness which is good enough for me.

As for overclocking, I have only gotten to 96hz so far which is holding up pretty well OC'd though the Nvidia control panel using the full patch with my 570GTX. It does not show skipping frames and a few games that I have tested so far see the 96hz refresh rate. i will be trying to take this further in the days to come. Overall, I am pretty happy with my purchase. Below are a few pictures I took.

Here's what I have been dealing with for the past month with my old monitor. I confirmed that there are cheap Taiwanese caps that's causing the problems especially the power on issues I have been having for the past year. This will be a rainy day re-capping project with high quality Japanese caps. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


1440p Qnix 27" and my ASUS VK266h 1200p 25.5"


The gap in the bezel



The Minor BLB..... Not sure what could be causing this but I am sure it's not the bezel since I can push on it a bit due to the flex in the center of it.

To get them to really match you will need a colorimeter. But feel free to try out the profiles available first.

yasamoka,

Thanks for your reply. I'm a newb when it comes to calibrating but since the QNIX has an OSD shouldn't I at least try and manually set it to the same default color settings as they X-Star (no OSD) at 100% brightness? If so do you know where I can get the default RGB and Contrast info for the X-Star?

If you are in the US you can rent a colorimeter. The colormunki is available for rent for around $40
