[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 448

post #4471 of 25887
Just received my monitor from dream-seller, no dead pixels, instantly overclocked to 120hz, very minimal back light bleed at the bottom left center and I paid $420 for it. I would have easily paid much more if I was guaranteed this quality.

The only downfall would be that it took 11 days to come through customs and I always get very worried about expensive items being left for so long. I also had to purchase a higher priced DVI-D cable that supports 2560x1440 because the cable you receive is only 1.5m or less. Just be careful on the cable you buy as not all DVI-D cables support 2560x1440 and will make your display unusable.

Hey Guys,

I'm planning to order a Qbux QX2710 LED from Ebay. I heard dreamseller was good.

I already have a U2711 and want to use this as a secondary monitor for 2D applications (web browsing, temp readings, forums, etc etc)

My U2711 is currently connected to a SLI GTX680's that I game on. I will not be doing surrond gaming.

Is it possible to connect this monitor to a GT610 @ GIG (02G-P3-2617-KR)? I used the GTX610 for previous 21.5 left and right flanking monitors which I sold.

It says on the that it only Supports Dual DVI-D dual link cards. On the product page it only shows DVI-I?

I live in Toronto Canada. What do you think my eta for arrival is?

Thanks guys.

I'm most likely going to order from them. I'm wondering if I should get an X-Star this time around though. An earlier post quoted an email from ipsledmonitors, here is a little excerpt:
If they did indeed recently receive a good batch of X-Stars (and that post is recent), my chance of encountering no problems could be really high. I'll email them and see what they have to say.
I just ordered a monitor. Read through my posts from the last week for my experiences with them.

The big ole' fat Monoprice DVI Cables are the best, that's what I use.

A quick question, why would some monitors, seemingly the same, cost two separate prices? Are they actually different or do they more reflect what the seller payed for them at the time?

Namely:

Monitor 1

Monitor 2

The first person to get one got a Qnix, so everyone else bought them as they were the only guaranteed OCer. THen someone got an X-Star and showed they could be OCed just as well, but by then all the guides had been made for Qnix so people got Qnix (even though they're almost exactly the same).

So demand for Qnix is higher, so they cost more.

Similarly I doubt people will buy the DP version until it is confirmed to OC.

Both of the monitors are Qnix QX2710's.

Must learn to be more awake...

The only reasons I can think of is deliberately posting multiple listings at various prices:

1) So some buyers accidentally/without realising get the more expensive one
2) So that, depending on filters etc. dreamseller's listings are more prominent/more likely to show up
3) So more of the products you see in a search are dream-seller's, you you are more likely to buy from them.
4) So when people see the same thing for cheaper they think "must buy now this is a good deal".

I think I've heard (1) being used even in the west by big chains, and (2,3,4) are ways of making buyers buy more.

Haha, its all good but ya that's pretty much what I figured was the purpose. On another note, what is this "perfect glossy/matte" I have seen in a few titles, I wasn't paying a lot of attention and almost mistook it for perfect pixel. However I think I've picked the monitor I'll be purchasing, PP Glossy. Unless of course by glossy they mean the bezel.

All the bezels are glossy frown.gif Though someone on here modded their's by spraying it with matte black paint.

I hope you have no reflective stuff near you at all. I'm not sure how big the difference between matte and glossy on these monitors is, but I've gone from glossy TN to matte X-Star and can say the lack of reflections is well worth any slight drop in IQ.
