You have to open the monitor up and lift the panel a little to get a screw driver in there to take the bottom mount off unless you just want to mount it with the stubble remaining on the monitor. (Example in this post)
I expected to be able to take it off without opening it but it was not the case.

Hey bud welcome to OC.net.. smile.gif
And know one know where these guys will be in 3 years but the initial 30day return is the main reason I would want to buy from them.

What is excluded?
Please refer to the details of the contract for the full list, but there are 5 notable exclusions to your coverage:
Pre-existing conditions: Items sold in non-working or partially working conditions. Any issues on used or refurbished items in the first 45 days are considered to be a pre-existing condition (accidents in the first 45 days are covered, if you purchased Accidents Protection coverage).

That would imply they don't cover dead pixels if it's a non-perfect pixel monitor listing. Also most the listings mention backlight bleed is a likely "pre-existing" condition so I don't think that would be covered either. It seems like you would have to pay more for a "pixel-perfect" monitor and then get a sqr trade warranty to be covered for dead pixels. Which is kind of funny considering the ebay sellers don't even test PP monitors for dead pixels.

I'm not saying ST warranty is a bad deal, but one trick I learned from selling retail warranties is that the first year relies on the manufacturers warranty (when issues most likely arise if you bought a lemon). They pretend you're buying a 3 year warranty, but in reality it's more like a 2 year warranty that kicks in after the first year. Just something to keep in mind

Looks like you have pointed out a newly found reason to purchase a perfect pixel monitor.

Apparently the stock stub on the X-Star is not screwed in internally like it is on the QNIX and you can just pull it out. That is the first and only real diff between them so far and am surprised the QNIX isn't like that too. Apparently it can support the thing without screws too cause I haven't seen reports of X-Stars being more flimsy or toppling over.

Guess so if you def want ST. Makes sense they do this; especially as the manufacturers are the ones certifying the PPs. At least in theory.

I overclocked mine to 96hz(through nvcp) and don't really notice a difference. Just my two cents.
edit: It's still gorgeous.

Yeah but surely the seller is not the manufacturer? So you would get those three years? And is there a way for them to know that you bought/did not buy a pixel perfect monitor? Insurance companies I dealt with in the past were too lazy to look things up tongue.gif.

Well there is a few things to look for. Primarily it would be moving the mouse cursor around fast. Secondly is the fluidity in games but you do have to make sure it is indeed running at 96fps(some games don't see the higher refresh without some work). There is also the possibility your eyes are just not as sensitive to framerate and you may have to go to 120hz to see a difference. Personally i could tell a difference immediately but one of my friends cannot tell to save his life. You may also want to try the refreshrate multitool to make sure you are overclocked(there is always a chance your drivers are jacked up).

Either way sorry that you are not seeing a real difference whatever the cause.

It could be that I played like 10 hours of BL2 and just got used it as well. I would still say this monitor is orders of magnitude better than the ~5 year old Acer I was using haha, so I don't have any regrets with the purchase.
