Umm....wow you have got a hell of good monitor there. Do you see any screen uniformity issues? or screen judder?

For CRU - try "LCD Reduced" then bump the bottom number from 64 to 60, and the right column from 2,2,2 to 1,2,2

Basically ending up with 2700x1445

Sorry im at work and i dont know the timings off by heart, but thats pretty much my optimal timings and should give stability and maybe even add 1 or 2hz to some overclocks. Ill try and post screen shots later.

I mean without using Toasty's cru tool and going into test mode.

Now I took some pictures but they kind of dont proof anything at all I dont notice uniformity issues but on the camera there is some kind of a difference so I will make a small video later today but I dont understand how the drivers calculate any kind of automatic timing settings since they stay the same between 96hz or any other refresh rate, only the pixel clock goes up.

Edit: I dont get any kind of scan lines or image retention at all when I used 134hz for about 15 minutes before switching back to 96, But there may have been some uniformity issues when I made a full green screen but ill have to do it again when I make the video.

I've been trying to find a monitor that I can get from there, but have been weighing the cost vs build quality and returnability issues that we all know about. I don't even care about overclocking, but nice black levels are something I'm looking for.

A few people have purchased from amazon. Look through the members list in the OP for sellers they bought from (start from the bottom of the list and work your way up)

Hey guys am also about to buy one of these monitors, but just have a few questions as it's time consuming to go through every post.

So:

Qnix or X-star? Matte or Glossy? I am in a pretty dark room and my brother's glossy dell always blows me away compared to a matte ASUS I recently tried (both supposedly IPS). Any personal reasons for which one you chose?

Which seller is most reliable? I want to maximize my chance of getting one without any backlight bleed, Amazon actually seems to have a seller called MNW GLOBAL, but not afraid of ebay. Is backlight bleed repair easy?

Longevity? How long can I expect this baby to last at 96hz? I'm hoping for at least 4-5 years.

And finally, I'd love to sometimes watch tv/ play video games/ stuff on the screen, I know it's DVI-Dual only, but is it possible another monitor will come out soon with a scalar and have low input lag?

All of this has been gone over in this thread so here is a very brief summary.

1. Qnix and xstar are identical this should not be a factor in your decision.
2. Matte works fine as it is very light but if you are in a dark room you may benefit slightly from glossy in terms of color. (very slightly)
3. hulustar, greensum, dreamseller, accessorieswhole, Bigclothcraft* are a few. Really look at price and warranty more than seller
4. the bleed repair is pretty easy and the video in the OP helps a lot.
5. plenty have people have had these for over a year now with no longevity problems. They have not be out long enough to know for sure.
6. there is a Qni with a scalaer and multiports on ebay

7. input lag would be there but noone has tested how much so yet.

QNIX and X-star are equivalent in just about every way (apparently there is a slight difference in the bases construction). I've OC'ed my X-star, many have OC'ed their QNIX without issue. I say flip a coin or buy whichever costs less at the moment.

All the panels come from South Korea so your odds of getting a good panel are about the same anywhere you purchase. The thing I would look for is communication and the seller/stores return policy if you do end up with a defective product. I don't have any examples of people having to return items on here, but I made sure I bought from a store that had a well defined return policy.

They already have a QNIX with a scalar and DPort inputs, no idea on the input lag on that model though.

edit:

Spartan F8 are talking about different models by the way:

Thanks for the info guys. That displayport model actually looks perfect but out of my budget. Oh well, can't have everything.

I am leaning towards glossy over matte, any reason I would regret it? Polls say most people get matte.

Down to these two:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-2560x1440-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-/140934439651?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20d058e2e3

Green-sum has that common pixel diagram which is clear.
Accessories whole says 3 pixels maximum, anyone with experience can clarify what that means? Both look like they have good return policies?
