If you are looking for a 02 glossy panel, I would buy one now.

I got another seller with an original 2013 QNIX glossy with an 02 panel for sale. I'm just trying to finalize my decision whether i should get it or not.

I messaged dreamseller about this and he doesn't seem to be sure and implies that the panel we will receive is entirely random. Im not much of gambler unless i have stats on my side , especially at $200 plus.

P.S. Remember, these are not A+ grade panels. A 'pixel perfect' panel that did not make the grade could mean there are other issues involved.

Maybe guys at Qnix figured out that 07 isnt selling as good as 02 so they just switched to 02 panels? Dunno, but probably they just wanna make cash as everybody else, so it all revolves around this in the first place. :-D

Man, I for one time in my life jumped on the XStar glossy for $200(because I had 5x ebay bucks to make it 180) without coming to get caught up and read the current happenings on these korean monitors since I last read about them in early 2014, only to realize I've made a big mistake and should have gone for the Qnix matte version. I wanted to try a glossy monitor since I never had one. The pictures of the color saturation make me kind of sad. Hoping the PWM doesn't cause issues either since I plan to look at the thing all day for work. I'll report back but man I wish returning these things was easier. This is what I get for not checking OCN first.

Here's something so you wont feel as bad , according to some even the new glossy's have the original 02 panel the only difference now is that there are more coin flips to be had.

02 or 07 panel (Also 06)
High overclock vs low overclock
PWM or none
Dead pixels or none

The only way to be certain with these monitors is to buy one straight up used or if you enjoy gambling ebay is fine.

Hello all-

I thought I'd give an update regarding my X-Star purchases from 2014...Post #21863 on page 2187 of this thread.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1384767/official-the-qnix-x-star-1440p-monitor-club/21860#post_23169288

After about one year of ownership and usage, my 3 X-Stars are still working just fine.
All monitors are powered up 24/7 at a 96Hz overclock.
No issues to report.
I'm still a happy camper...thumb.gif

Hmmm some interesting developments lately! ... I agree w/blued +R ... I'd keep it! At the very least I'd turn around and sell it, likely for more than you paid for it! Did you try to "massage" the pixels? Mine originally had 2 stuck pixels and they both were fixed with a little determination.

1) You answered a key question for me that you had a gamma shift while overclocking! --> L02 for sure!
2) Is it PWM free?
3) Are you sure it's a true glossy and not a tempered glass over matte/glossy? Like this Crossover HERE ... or years ago in this thread redface.gif

If the answer to all three above is Yes ... grab'm while you can!!! thumb.gif

Don't feel bad ... by sheer luck/timing you may hit the Jackpot like Batman above! biggrin.gif

Haha thanks for that. That does make me feel better. I don't mind the gamble. I just thought my choice effectively guaranteed a inferior monitor. Hopefully I get lucky. We'll see when it gets here in a few days and I'll report back.

Just out of curiousity how hard is it to return these monitors typically?

If anything you can sell yours and buy batmans. biggrin.gif

I'll check for PWM when I get it home. I had to back down the OC to 115hz as I was getting a slight artifact when watching videos. What's odd is that on the upper left hand corner of the frame, 2720LED is printed so I guess they are reusing old housings? I'm going to try and massage the dead pixels to see if there are any changes.

Judging from the response that I got from Dream Seller, I'm not expecting the return process to go smoothly. If I were you guys, I would buy future monitors from green-sum as I've gotten 2 different monitors from him and he definitely has great customer service and a phone number to call.
