So, the bleed is a bit worse than I thought but apparently my ASUS is worse and both are still not bad.




120Hz, no dead pixels, minor bezel pop and only this much bleed

I've been wondering how to do this on PCs for a while, thanks for the suggestion. Alas, I only get a solid green screen when I try to play videos. How did you get this to work? Does it only work for Nvidia cards at these refresh rates?

hey i just got my x-star matte pls monitor from BCC and first thing i notice is the bleed... pretty bad, worse than my old first generation Acer 23" 120Hz 3D monitor. i also noticed that i can press on the top part of the screen and it is VERY loose! the panel is just jiggling around in the enclosure if i press anywhere on the top part of the screen, and the only part that seems secured is the bottom part (but maybe that's only because of the weight?)

how the panel is not secured to the bezel worries me, in that it could've been seriously damaged in shipping it! so anyways now what i want to do is just fix it so it stops light bleed and doesn't wiggle around. what's the best way to fix the panel from moving around after dismantling it?

I got my Glossy Qnix QX2710 from Fed Ex yesterday...I am floored. For the low price of 320 and change, I bought a pixel perfect panel. It...is...stunning. The gloss doesn't bother me too much, just turn off most of your lights. If you have a window behind you, or anywhere near you, I'd make sure the curtains or blinds are drawn. Amazing picture, at a low price. I sound like an advert, but damn, I feel like I gambled and hit the jackpot. Haven't overclocked yet...still fiddling with my PC, which I just finished building yesterday (my first build), but eventually I'll get around to it.

The details: Arrived in perfect shape, not enough backlight bleed to bother me, no dead pixels, and humorously wobbly "glass" stand which isn't so bad, so long as you don't nudge your desk often (the monitor will jiggle if you do). I didn't receive a plug adapter, but it was okay, I ran to Best Buy and bought one for six bucks. Customer service from Dream Seller was the best I've experienced on Ebay. I bought the panel on Monday, at 2:52pm, and Fed Ex attempted to deliver around noon (I picked it up at their office at 6:45pm). From South Korea to California in less than five days.

You have to disable hardware accelration since you patched your drivers and broke HDCP with that.
Check this: http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-AMD-ATI-Pixel-Clock-Patcher
SVP uses MPC-HC I guess + madVR? Just do it like it's being said there: You simply need to go to the "Internal Filters" section of the options for MPC and uncheck DXVA.
If you have lav-filters aswell then you have to go to the lav video settings aswell.
I'm on GNU/Linux right now and not bothered to boot into windows and check so just search around for DXVA.

So these overclock? I bought a Catleap just as the the 2B models stopped selling on ebay so I missed out frown.gif
Should I grab one of these while I can, looking at the first post it looks like most people are getting decent OC's on these, is the one I linked the correct model?

Yep this one is nice. It even is a perfect pixel one.
So far everyone could overclock theirs, I think.

Thinking of getting the qnix. I see dreamseller and BCC have it for 309.90, is that the lowest around, which seller do you recommend?

Also matte or glossy, what do you guys think.

I would use the MPC-HC install that SVP comes with and then turn on madvr as your video renderer. Then if you want to utilize your GPU for video processing turn on the LAV filters and set them to prefer. Also if youhave an nvidia GPU you can set the LAV video decoder to cuvid for the best performance.

This link has a pretty good guide with some good info but you would use this after installing and enabling SVP which should be automatic with the installer. Hope this helps.

Im thinking of going for this one http://www.ebay.com/itm/Matt-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-27-2560x1440-Samsung-PLS-Panel-PC-Monitor-/221203080190?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item3380bb23fe

it says it wont retunr it for backligt and dust though, will it return for dead pixels, is this normal?


you also have to buy an adapter? Im in ireland
