[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 407

post #4061 of 21338
Hi,

I'm looking to pull the trigger on an X-Star. Trying to find the most budget option. Choosing between 3 options for a shipment to Canada:
  1. http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/
  2. http://www.2560x1440monitor.com/
  3. Someone on ebay

Anyone have experience with http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/? I am leaning towards them, but they charge for shipping and charge an additional premium of $19.95 for using USPS. This helps in avoiding the FedEx and UPS issues. Not sure if this is an option for the other two purchasing options. Anyone else have any thoughts for purchasing for someone in Canada?

sluggy, so far, both Flaunt and myself have had really good experiences with ipsledmonitors.com. 2560x1440monitor.com seems to be a Korean ebay-er's attempt at a english site (phone # and address are both Korean). I'd say if you're in anyway concerned with being able to return a monitor then stick with ipsledmonitors.com. If you want to save some money then stick with ebay, but I would avoid paying more for pixel perfect because they apparently charge more without doing any tests.

No idea on the fedex vs USPS for Canada (I'm in the US). http://www.dutycalculator.com/ is a tool you could use to figure out the customs. Seems like you're going to spend more either way.

Oh! Can anyone recommend me a good stand that has height adjustment, screen rotation, tilt, and swivel? I want to replace the one that comes with the monitor.

Thanks! smile.gif

Also, there is a gateway stand that is also recommended but costs more ($30) and looks worse IMO.

For anyone having trouble getting games to accept 120hz installing the catleap driver can help, Also i noticed this was not very clearly pointed out in the thread so i have posted this picture to make it crystal clear. This "preferred refresh rate" option can bypass any games with a built in cap(AKA Shadowrun). Setting it to highest available will make the game shoot to the "highest" so if you have any test refresh rates setup for benchmarking the display(153hz for me) it will go that high so be careful.

Hope this helps thumb.gif

So out of the the monitors under 400$ on http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/ what one would you get, that is the best quality for this type of monitor? and people with experiance with that site should i just skip their 3 year warranty or is it worth it?

Do you want to be able to OC?Cause there are only a few under $400 that do that..The Qnix and Xstar..Do you care if it is PLS or IPS?Do you want Matte or glossy?

i want a matte monitor and i want to OC it and i don't know enough about the differences of PLS VS IPS, but from a standpoint of not knowing it doesn't matter to me.

Ips is LG and PLS os samsungs ips. They are pretty much the same thing..But some people say PLS has blacker blacks . but it could be a myth lol..So your 2 choices are the Matte qnix or the Xstar. They are basically the same monitor they both OC and both use the same panel. The only real difference is the clear monitor stand can be removed easier on the Xstar.I went with Qnix because more people on this site have them . So you either want this one
http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/QNIX-QX2710-Evolution-II-Monitor-p/qni1.htm

Or this one
http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/X-Star-DP2710-Monitor-p/xst1.htm

And as far as the warranty goes we don't know yet cause no one has had to use it yet . Plus some member made a good point as who knows if they will still be around for 3 years..You could just buy the monitor and add a square trade warranty afterwards..
I hope the links worked as I did this from my phone sorry..
