That don't look good.. Who did you buy from?

I would definitely say that is grounds for return. Who did you purchase it from?

Got it from hulustar. Damn was hoping there would be some sort of magic fix.
Will get in contact with them in that case

Bought a QNIX matte display from green-sum with perfect pixel option. I recieved it today:

First of all, wow, what an amazing picture quality. An that for a little less than 280€ including taxes.
It overclocks easily to 120Hz with the stock cable. Only the "brightness" goes down a bit.

Here are my problems: Backlightbleeding top left corner, the lower right corner is also very bright and goes darker by pressing on the panel and a dead pixel appr. 10cm from the bottom and 20cm from the right border. Any chance with green-sums perfect pixel policy?

But that's not the major issue: At 60Hz it's almost not hearable (i can when it's really quite), but it starts at 96Hz, especially with a large area of white. There's a loud summing noise coming out of the back of my display. At 120Hz its noticable all the time...
That's really annoying! Because of that it will only be possible to use 60 Hz while i'm not gaming oder watching a movie.

It sounds like a inductor. Did anyone else noticed this problem and fixed it? I think i have to open the bezel anyway cause of the backlightbleeding.

I plan on getting 2 XStars (Or QNix's. Can't really decide which is better/more suitable for side-by-side,) but my graphics card only has a single DVI port, and an HDMI port as well. The motherboard also has a DVI port as well, however.

I guess my question is, after plugging in one monitor DVI to DVI, would DVI to HDMI work on the second? (DVI in the monitor, HDMI in graphics card.)

If not, could I just DVI-DVI directly into my motherboard? I assume that would hurt its ability to game and such, running on the onboard graphics...

Doesn't look very perfect to me, must be annoying. I am waiting for mine. Hope you are able to sort it.

Hello am new to the forums and have been following this thread for 2 week now. This Qnix Matte monitor is the best display you can buy right now, got mine shipped $289 from greensum, absolutely gorgeous display.

First thing i did was to check for light bleed and dead pixels using UndeadPixel and i had bleeding going on in the corners but the the panel had no dead pixel. I the decided i was going to do the tapemod to fix the bleeding, i open up the monitor, and to a point i did get rid of most bleed. I then proceeded to put back my monitor together, i turned on my monitor and the first thing i noticed was 2 dead pixel, oh man i was so pissed about this, i am borderline ocd so this bothered me a lot. One whole week passed by, i tried everything to try to undead the pixels, but it was of no use.

I then decided i was going to open up the monitor and add tape to bring up the display a little bit., in the mean time for some reason i was still very upset about the dead pixels, i took the display apart all the way and decided to check underneath the glass panel for dust particles, it look cleaned to me but nevertheless decided to use some compressed air in between the glass and the white sheet. finally put the display together and what do you know, NO MORE DEAD PIXELS!!!, it was dirt that got in between the glass.

Am not saying that is whats going on with every panel, some panels might get dead pixel after you mess with them too much, but in my experience if you open up your monitor and it seems like you have 1 or 2 dead pixels, you owe it to yourself to make sure there is no dirt particles in between.

It's as "perfect pixel" as the "Perfect Pixel" guarantee offers. Perfect Pixel does not equate to flawless panel. If you ordered "Perfect Pixel" expecting that, you are likely to be disappointed.

Both outputs must be Dual Link DVI - so if youre able to actually use both the motherboard video output with your GPU then its possible (but im almost positive if theres a GPU the onboard video will be disabled automatically)

Another way is that you will need an *active* adapter to DL-DVI, i personally own a display port -> Dual Link DVI adapter - but its only rated up to 330mhz, so it wont do 120hz (maybe 96hz if im lucky) - you can get a 450mhz capable one, but theyre $130 or something.

Im not really sure they make HDMI > DL-DVI active adapters. Youll probably need to upgrade to a newer Geforce (which have 2xDL-DVI outputs, or a Radeon and get an adapter - most Radeons only have 1xDL-DVI and a bunch of display port outputs.
