Just ask for something rediculous, that way you can haggle down. If you start low theres no way of getting a good offer. They offered me $5 per monitor for sending me glossy instead of matte, in the end i settled for $30 because i actually really like glossy but just didnt realise it - Adam

Lol, my Dell overclocks but there is ALWAYS frame skipping even at 60hz.

Still though, for $280 and 1440p PLS @ 60hz it should be considered a great deal thumb.gif

I did my research, I just rushed and didn't realize it was the dual input monitor. I bought this along with a 980 at the same exact time, so when I saw the 980 was in stock, I was like OOO CRAP let me hurry up and order the monitor too lol

Selling my brand new X-STAR DP2710, from UK.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Perfect-Pixel-X-STAR-DP2710-LED-27-QHD-2560x1440-Samsung-PLS-Panel-UK-SELLER-/301359556747?

Thinking of buying this right now so in a bit of a rush! I've only done limited reading on the X-star just want to check that it's as good as overclocking as the qnix? I like the idea it's already in the UK and pixel perfect!!!

Thanks

I just wish I knew I needed that damn adapter to go eyefinity. I'm just pissed that I still have to drop another $100.... It's like.. If only I waited 6 months, and saved myself $1100 over that friggen $100.
wait,why are u dropping another$100? on what? because im on the verge of doing triple displays,im so excited its my first time experiencing it. plus eyefinity is AMD,im about to get a 2nd GTX 580 for cheap since i dont wana upgrade to the new series due to money so i wil just get a 2nd 580 for SLI w/3x qnix 1440p. any recommendations? btw,what adapter are u talking about so i can be aware? thanks.

Hey, i'm the seller. I've been asked many times now by eBay peeps if it will overclock to 120hz. I have been unable to do it. I've got it to 96hz with all the colours looking correct, but frame skipping, and to 117hz with some odd colour patching and frame skipping. The highest un-skipping rate I've gotten it to is 80hz.

I realize this might stop you buying the monitor but id rather be honest with you than deceive you. That said, i'm really bad at overclocking, anything, so you or someone else might be able to get it to 120hz. or at least 96hz.

Sold!!! Thanks for your reply. I think it's worth the gamble as I've got somebody that wants one just for a desktop monitor if all else fails. Look forward to receiving it :-)

Thanks mate!

Well, as you know I'm AMD, and you're Nvidia.. But for AMD, despite the fact I have (4) effing video cards, all monitors must connect to top card. I have (3) Qnix DL DVI monitors.. There are only (2) DL DVI outs from the 290x. I need to buy an active adapter that will take my displayport out from card, and convert it to DL DVI for my third monitor. Get it? It's still a hell of a lot cheaper than getting displayport equipped monitors, etc, or at least it used to be. It's just more of the fact that I'm pissed I have to do it, it's my only oversight (aside from emptying my pockets), and it will affect overclockability of the monitor. I'll get over it... After dumping $7k on a damn computer, I'm a bit jaded..

Hi so I just received my Qnix monitor from Newegg sold by GN estore..It is dead on arrival frown.gif I pluuged it in and when plugging the power into the monitor a red light blinks for 1 sec right above the power button. Then when pressing the power button nothing happens. It does not turn on. None of the buttons work( I know only the power is supposed to). Any help? Ideas? I tried different outlets..I dont have a US power cord to try out. Seems to me the power button does not work?
