Good find

if anyone has a lightboost monitor you will see things you have never even imagined could be seen on a computer screen.

I'd try but I deleted any entries for 60Hz on my monitor tongue.gif

Had issues with some games still running 60Hz instead of 120 so I just removed the option so they had no choice thumb.gif

Just noticed hulustar says on his "Pixel Perfect" monitors that they'll refund 5$ per pixel after 1. Does that mean he will not replace your monitor if there is a bunch of dead pixels?

They are all very vague with their return policies and what qualifies to get a replacement/postage refund. I'm now stuck between Green-Sum and Hulustar in terms of their return policies. Which one would you say is more reliable and communicative. The only thing I'm worried about is getting my postage refund unless they send some pre-paid sticker or whatever.

Does green-sum mark as gift with lower price?

I have a X-Star. New timings at 90hz I was getting green lines across the screen. It looked like my standard timing 120hz lines. So it is probably the cable or my monitor just can't do it. I'm fine with standard 96hz anyway.

So I finally got around to trying to fix my light bleed problem. However, when I took the bezel off, I noticed that the light bleed was being caused by the metal frame underneath pressing on the screen. I took a picture and circled the areas that are too tight on the screen. Any idea how to bend the frame up without damaging the screen? I tried doing it a little bit, but was getting really nervous about breaking it.

I ordered from hulustar and I asked to mark the value at 119,99$ and put gift or refurbished. He/she suggested refurbished and was ok with the lower value.

Well then you can never update your GPU drivers. Seriously, don't forget to put a 60Hz back before you do or you will find yourself reinstalling Windows (the new driver needs to be patched too etc and to do all that you need to be able to display 60Hz first).

Chris.

I have owned both, The reds are better on an IPS panel however you do not get as much contrast so it is contestable which one is better, I would go for qnix as it's overclock able. There is also the issue of a temporary burn in that sometimes happens but it goes away in 10 mins.
