So guys my monitor came in from hulustar only paid 18.00 in custom fees, and ive quickly put it together as i have to go back to work and wont be able to test it fully until the 18th mad.gif

Here are some pics btw i did a quick fullscreen of the red blue and green to check dead pixels and i saw nothing, also the stand is very flimsy and there was one screw to attach it so im not sure if i did it right. I might need more help from you guys later but for now everything looks good and im using 7 clicks of the brightness up button.

I really want to get another one of these monitors and have two screens.

The issue is it only accepts Dual-link DVI correct? My video card has only one of those, it has another DVI, but its not duel link, at least I don't think so. It's actually, Dual-Link DVI-I is the second one, does it work with that?

Is there anyway to connect this monitor without dual-link DVI?

No there is no way without dual-link to push this many pixels but if your second port is in fact dual-link DVI-I then you're fine.

Are you sure? I just plugged the monitor into the DVI-I and its just flashing test screens, colors and gradients, thats all.

Thanks for the pic brightbus, I may end up getting two of these. One in landscape and the other in portrait. I don't think I would ever need 3 screens lol

Never-mind, it's working on DVI-I smile.gif

Hey guys! I've been a lurker for a while but I made an account to ask a question.

I'm considering buying th Qnix x monitor from green-sum. However, it explicitly says to be used with a Dual Link DVI-D.

I have, or instead will be getting, a 7950 Vapor-X. Under Newegg specifications it says it has a Single Link DVI and a Dual Link DVI. It doesn't tell me if it's a Dual Link DVI-D or not. I remember reading somewhere it was a DVI-I, which won't work. But I don't know just how foggy my memory is or how reputable the site was.

It looks like to me it has two Dual Link DVI, a DVI-D and a DVI-I. In that case, it would work. Newegg link for clarification.

What do you guys think? Any same card owners?

Both of those DVI ports on that GPU you linked will work with the monitor.

After reading quite a bit of this thread it sounds like a roll of the dice regardless of which seller the buyer chooses to purchase from.


http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-2560x1440-PLS-Monitor-Matte-/111073520913?pt=US_Computer_Speakers&hash=item19dc7f6d11

Regards, smile.gif

Just be very careful - I can't see the listing from school, but green-sum has some different policies for perfect pixel.

First of all, if it says "refund $5 for all dead pixel" avoid it.

Secondly, green-sum does not consider "dark" (his word) pixels as dead pixels, and they have no standard for how many are needed for a replacement.
The only guarantee is that there are no bright/stuck pixels.

This is based on the Perfect Pixel X-Star Matte I got from him.
After a few emails, he gave me a guarantee that there would be max 1 dark pixel, not near the center.

So if you are getting perfect pixel from him, take the time to clarify these things, or you could end up with something a lot worse than expected.

Good luck!
