Update us with which one you like the most, also is these available in the uk amazon? Can't seem to find them. But i certainly don't want to pay 50 Bucks shipping plus taxes for those.

Well, as much as I wanted to try the X-Star after my defective QNIX, I was still a weary about the response time discrepancies and the fact that we don't fully know if there are any internal parts that are different. So I left it to a blind coin toss, and the QNIX won 3 times in a row. I'll take that as a sign.

Hello

Check normal background.

You can not see. Even paly movie too.

Please take a picture with that.

THanks.

- hulustar

After letting hulustar know how ridiculous that was I too was told that DHL would pick up the monitor. Never did, and no further contact. I've since fixed the BLB by bending the metal frame carefully and replaced the ****ty base with an HP one someone mentioned in this thread. Can't go back to 1080 after 1440.

The response time is actually the same (6ms) according to the manual that goes with the X-Star.
Anyways coin toss seems like the best method of choosing tongue.gif

Weird i have also never heard bad of Hulustar - Guess they can't satisfy all their costumers.
Anyways the HP stand that you mentioned, is that this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-HP-Extended-Height-ZR22w-Monitor-Stand-LV980AA-/200944863774?pt=US_Monitor_Mounts_Stands&hash=item2ec93f4a1e ?

If so, how is it?

Still thinking about whether to pull the trigger to buy one or not! The only thing holding me back is what to do with the my current 24 inch asus 144hz that I purchased a little over a month ago doh.gif

Sell it on ebay? Look around on there see what others are selling theirs for and get an idea what to start pricing it at, and I would only ship it to lower 48 state buyers and I would also use parcel select with usps to cut down on the cost of shipping. I sold a 23" monitor on there cost 21 dollars to ship from CA to Arkansas, but of course buyer paid for shipping.

that is petty bad IMO. the auction states BLB is not considered a defect. hulustar could have just said "sorry that's not a defect". But lying about DHL to get you to go away is a whole new level of shady.

Been using 2.2 for years until I tried using the sRGB gamma recently, dark details become easier to see and movies & TV shows look more natural.

Updated to the OP. Sorry for the delay

If so, how is it?

LV980AA - yep that's it. It's awesome. I just used the screws that came with the LV980AA and mounted it directly to the monitor (after removing the proprietary HP plate thingy) and boom I was done. Looks great, makes the monitor way taller, and I don't have a heart attack if I accidentally bump into my desk anymore. Price is nice too.
