[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 343

post #3421 of 25893
I feel that I can give a view after 3 wks usage, a Pixel perfect Qnix matte from Red Cap, Pixel perfect, slight bleed , opened and frame was a bit bent, straightened it and v v low bleed, just about noticeable in pitch darkness but can't see in normal use.
Now almost perfect, may tape it but may never do.
Friendly, and efficient.

Plan on buying this today or very soon:

Pixel Perfect QNIX QX2710 from Green-Sum.

 

Questions:

 

Does it come with the right DVI cable? If so, I see people posting Monoprice cables, why? Do they hold more bandwidth and are better for overclocking? Because overclocking is a big reason for me getting this specific model.

 

Is Green-Sum's PP policy the "1 center, 5 outter" or is it 100% no defective pixels?

 

Does anyone know if that monitor I listed is one B grade monitors? Seems cheap for a PP version.

I assume it should come with the proper DVI cable. The reason people upgrade to a different cable is because they buy a cable with thicker gauge wire. The reason for this is that larger wire gauge can transfer signal better (at least in theory, really it is just capable of transferring more power through the cable). I have a Yamasaki Catleap 2B that with the stock cable could only reach about 105Hz, with the Monoprice 24AWG cable I can hit 130Hz. As others have said, quality on the monoprice cables can be hit and miss so you wont always get a better performing cable, or the stock cable may work perfectly well enough as is and you dont need to upgrade at all.

Thanks.

 

I'll edit my first post, but I'll ask here too.

 

Does anyone know if that monitor I listed is one B grade monitors? Seems cheap for a PP version.

Hi, new guy here and thought I'd chime in. I just got my X-star matte and love it. I ordered a pixel perfect dvi-only matte x-star dp2710 from bigclothcraft. Ordered sunday and received thursday. The monitor appears to have no dead or stuck pixels. It has some minor backlight bleed at the top, but it's not horrendous and I can live with it. I was able to easily overclock it to 120 hz using the EVGA utility, although I haven't tested it thoroughly yet for image artifacts. My previous monitor was an LG 24" 120 hz monitor and I was able to go back to 60 hz gaming after a day or two of getting used to it. The contrast and colors on this monitor are amazing, I'm glad I went with this one over one of the LG IPS'es.

Honestly the bleed looks pretty bad, but camera lenses can make it look worse than it is.

I would possibly try the 'tape fix' if I were you.

I don't think you need the pixel perfect to be honest. I paid for a regular at $290 and mine arrived Thursday. I got no dead/stuck pixels and I have very little backlight bleed, I would take a picture but I cant get my room dark enough atm so maybe later tonight. Mine overclocked (with the stock cable) to 96hz easy and I tried 120hz but my computer kept returning it back to 96hz on its own after 30s or so. I haven't tried anything other than that.
