[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 466

post #4651 of 25893
So i am curious to know. Does anyone in here that has an AMD Gfx card want to do a nifty review with overdrive? I think it would be neat to see the resulting response, input lag, and negative effects it may have at overdriving pixels at an already overclocked panel. I wonder if it would give you massive good motion detection OR catch on fire eek.gif

Qnix vs Xstar - are they the same?
So glossy in a darker room is better?
Any recommended seller anyone?
I plan purchasing one of these on Thursday.

Just got my QNIX PLS (glossy). from ipsledmonitors.com You all were not kidding about the bezel and base being cheap! I guess it adds character to the monitor ($600 panel in a $5 bezel). I was able to just pull the clear portion of the stand right out of the bezel. Next I want to find a better stand to mod like LucidDreamer's QNIX.

Other than that this thing is great! A little BLB and a bright pixel in the far left corner. I think it's a keeper.

I spent a lot of time lurking this thread, you guys all helped me out.Thanks! Glossy Panel is GLOSSYThose that are considering glossy, here is my best attempt at a picture. It is very reflective as you can see. If you have a lot of light coming from behind you I would consider a matte.

edit: found it on HP small business website. Unavailble to purchase online... what about over the phone?

Would this other eBay auction

be the correct stand? If so, I'm tempted to buy it asap, even if it is used.

I tried this on my current TN monitor and noticed no difference, so I too am curious if there is a difference with the 2710.

Also in CCC the setting is under "My Digital Flat-Panels>LCD Overdrive (Digital Flat-Panel)", if someone can't find it. thumb.gif

You guys know that with FedEX(which is harder you have to be slicker on the phone(Fedex can be a right ahole sometimes about refusing rejecting packages if you think you might have trouble(you will) just claim you just moved in and you saw this package made out to someone else(dont say its you) especially on a special order/item like a 300 dollar korean monitor) and UPS(I bet I can pull it off with DHL too) you can just cut open the bottom of the box and if you test your monitor quickly if you put the packaging back together right without damaging the shipping label(this is the most obvious and most important part of the operation) and without making it obvious you opened the package(plus you tell them on the phone you didnt open it). Get Creative. View it as a puzzle. If you have to cut something make it under a flap you can tuck it under use maximum strength ducktape(this is good for clothes shipped in bags) to tape a plastic bag back closed from the inside. Always cut a package from the bottom and get yourself some clear packing tape to reseal packages(sometimes even over seller proprietary tape the delivery man doesnt have time to check the bottom of every package nor does he care the only person you have to fib to is the person over the phone package carriers are making money hand over fist and they are getting greedy wanting us to pay for returns its not necessary).

Just reject or refuse the package it will go back to the shipper free of charge. If the seller doesnt want to give a refund contact paypal tell them you never received your item...... Just put everything back the way you found it. Pull staples out gently cut glued boxes down inbetween the cardboard and then reglue it before return(dont put off repackaging you dont want to miss the package carrier or be doing this at the last minute). Clothing boxes are getting more creative where all the taped seals are on the top where the package man can see them like Ralph Lauren but you can still unfold the sides of these boxes remember a box is just a cardboard sheet folded like a puzzle just use your mind and figure a way in; propreitary tape(sometimes this can be cleanly removed and cardboard surfaces repaired with a wet sponge and then covered with clear packing tape) and new box constructions have yet to stop me. You can take a few days to test your monitor just claim you were out of town and you just got back(oh a family member signed for the package). I save a fortune this way deal shopping and I never pay for returns.

Often people doctor the internet photo to make something look better(this is getting bad lately) or when you buy something on closeout the picture isnt the actual item its last years(that always looks better) Fedex DHL UPS are making more money than ever before so is ebay so is amazon this is a victimless crime(you really shouldnt feel bad about it and what about them now handing the package off the mail carrier to cheap skate(what a hassle this is this is the only way i lose packages and if you return something through mail carrier request the pickup online so you get a pickup confirmation you can use later to hang over their head if they lose it but watch you those mail people may look nice but its called POSTAL for a reasion they are the true package gangsters paid carriers might actually care but a POSTAL package gangster when pushed and cornerd will show you how much they dont give a crap and HOW MUCH YOUR PACKAGE MISSING DOESNT EVEN MATTER TO ANYONE BUT YOU BECAUSE THEY SURE DONT INCUR ANY REPERCUSSIONS). So... package carriers are getting cheap with last leg national post shipping when they are making money hand over fist(smart post, basic ground) making you wait longer with no tracking on the last leg just to offer shippers one dolllar off on shipping econo and their bottom lines are exploding. They owe you a return ship. Become a master of return smile.gif.

Yes wall of text. Cry. I fully explain things and this info could potentially save you hundreds of dollars(a year sometimes a sale is followed by a better sale just rebuy the same stuff then in the same box the new stuff came in put the same old order with old invoice and get higher amount refunded mastering the visualization of the free return flowchart has many possible benefits) and increase your standard of living via deal shopping and returning so dont hate appreciate the info.

P.S. You know how I figured this out a retail clothing phone help told me and I just took it to the nth degree each return at first was challenging but now its no big deal. You have to learn how to talk to Fedex. The first few times you talk to them dont give out your info and try to get them to return and check out the attitudes you get(UPS is far more relaxed about it)(just explain the situation and what you want without giving any identifying information..... use skype or some other voip service that cant be traced to a number with your name on it(this will help you in all interactions with businesses(never use a landline infact ditch your landline service and only use internet and save yourself some money.... get rid of that nsa spy line) as it is written into the law they(any avg business no im not talking about the government nsa conspiracy here johnny come noobly) can see your number even when you block callerid but you dont have that same right back to them its actually an fcc regulation I looked it up years ago but I dont remember the details). Then you'll understand what I mean and you will see they deserve and demand "creativity".

In the end UPS is preferable remember everytime you get a package always cut out the bottom get a sharp knife and do it carefully. Sometimes you have to cut or remove proprietary packing tapes just make sure its on the bottom so when the package man comes to pick it up its not obvious the package has been opened and your good. Most of the time they dont even look or care they just pick it up. The most important thing is the package must look unopened at a quick glance and it must have the same packing sticker. I have never had a problem, but i also do a quality job.
