I'm sorry that font just isn't big enough for me to read on my 27" 1440p monitor biggrin.gif

I wish you could set an option where someone would have to view the first post off the bat before the rest of the thread is visible.

yea that would be helpful to everyone. It would be better to figure out the two threads on the same subject issue though

When my QNIX/X-star arrives, what should I be checking for (to see if I should return it)?

It depends on where you bought it I believe. Some sellers seem to allow up to 5+ pixels for a good monitor. The one that I purchased has a 3 dead pixel max so I hope I have a better chance of getting a perfect one.

Overall it seems like the majority of the people here claim to have no dead pixels on arrival. So I think the odds are both in our favor.

1. Run through the different color screens to identify dead pixels.

2. Try to turn your monitor 10-12 clicks from the highest brightness setting and set to an all black screen and turn off that lights; that's the worst backlight bleed you should experience.

3. The bezels are really cheap so don't get too hung up on that, but occasionally people report that the panel doesn't sit right in the bezel (that's definitely a problem).

4. Turn the monitor off and on several times, make sure that it powers on consistently.

5. Check for PWM flickering when the monitor is set at your preferred brightness level.

6. Test the Speakers? Has anyone actually used the speakers in these things? lol

Two quick questions, just got my monitor yesterday and set it up.

First was with CRU - I followed the instructions and the custom settings / hz are still not showing in the nvidia control panel. (yes, in test mode and did the full patcher). I was able to set a custom profile in the nvidia control panel to get to 96 and 120hz. Is there any difference in using CRU and the Nvidia stuff? Any idea why the other way is not working (I have the check box unchecked as well).

2nd question was related to this custom icc profile mentioned in the FAQ. I can't seem to find it on that site, does anyone have the actual link?

Personally, out of every calibration profile posted here, the Asus PB278Q V3.icc looked the best on my monitor, and is a favorite for others as well.
