Made the gamble and decided to stick with ebay. I just bought the qnix qx2170 off of accessorieswhole. I also purchased the 3 year squaretrade warranty so I should be good to go. Not too shabby of a deal with a final price of $332.

I have saw more than one post saying that accessorieswhole sent them a x-star instead of qnix so we will see what turns up in the mail. I'm just hopping for no dead pixels and atleast a fixable backlight issue. I guess that's what anyone is hoping for purchasing one of these though tongue.gif

Is this to fix the backlight issue? I'm pretty sure any standard electrical tape will work fine.

Fingers crossed haha. That person also got $40 back so maybe it's time to hope for a X Star? It'll be the same monitor either way haha.

Hey guys just wanted to share my experience. I bought my qnix from http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/. So far works really good no dead pixels but there is a little bit of backlight bleed in the bottom left corner. Its not that noticeable unless I look at it when I'm watching a movie, but when I play a game I barely notice it at all. Looks like the monitor came from dream-seller as there was a note from him. I know it costs extra to buy from ipsledmonitors but looks like you will get a good monitor from them with a good return policy and warranty if you get it.

There's a whole youtube tutorial on how to take your monitor apart.

$20 says all these guys are running low on QNIX and are shipping X-stars to fulfill the orders. It's probably easier than telling everyone they're out of stock and losing the sale to some other seller. They are identical monitors (aside from an apparent mounting screw), but it's hard to convince the average buyer; most people see the majority of people bought QNIX and they want the same.

Where do you get these VESA base stands at? I been looking for some and I haven't got very successful and I seen some youtube videos where people got these vesa stands attached to the back of the monitor without taking off the bezel.

You can find stands in a few places .. I had checked NewEgg for example (searched for "vesa desk stand") but I didn't want to pay $40 for one.

So I actually took the stand off my old HP w2408h that died. Its a vesa mount and just took a little home-tinkering to get it to fit right.

Hey just joined, thinking about picking up a Korean PLS shortly. Seems like the x-star and qnix are interchangeable, I guess I should just flip a coin lol. Can anyone tell me if it's safe to overclock? I heard about Image Retention but aren't some of you worried the monitor will die sooner if it's displaying at 96Hz or 120Hz?
