[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 481

post #4801 of 25911
My Qnix is shipping now.. Do most of you guys use your own power cord with the power brick rather than the included one? And also what kind of DVI-D cables are you guys using? I realized I only had DVI-I so I bought a Monster DVI-D high speed for support up to 2560x1600 resolution and 85 hz. I hope I wasn't ripped off on the cable (paid 35 for it but I can always return it).

The monitors come with DVI-D cables. Some people report that higher grade cables help them achieve a better OC but for the most part the stock cables seem to do fine up to and over 120hz.

Now I just have them all in a folder with the wallpaper rotation set to 30 seconds. I can literally just sit and stare for hours. thumb.gif

HERE is a few of the best ones that I have found.

Whoa, those are really nice! They really pop on these monitors biggrin.gif I only had a few which are somewhat mellow compared to these though. I added all your wallpapers to my folder and changed the cycle rate to 30 seconds since they're way more now.

HERE is my small collection of comparatively mellow wallpapers

Super nice collection and thanks for sharing! Hopefully we can get more of these in this thread/OP.

So an update with my order from Ipsledmonitors. I started the RMA process, but I emailed back Kyle from sales whom I was chatting with before I placed my order. I explained to him my situation, and he replied:

Sorry to hear you had trouble. We will do our best to track down a better quality monitor for you. We’ve never had to exchange a monitor more than once for our customers, so let’s make that our goal.

"Track down a better quality monitor" - What could that mean? I don't think they test the monitor before shipping (it comes from Korea after all), so how would they be able to tell which would be a better quality monitor? Anyway, they're going above and beyond to help me make this right. They have been fantastic to deal with and I still recommend them despite getting one with a lot of defects.

I wanted to ask, have you guys ever heard of a company shipping your replacement out before they receive your return? I can understand why not from a business standpoint, they need to make sure they're getting the same exact item back. But do you think it would be too much to ask? Only reason is because I have to wait 5 more days for UPS to ship it cross country back to them to wait 5 more days to get the replacement from Korea. They've helped me so much, I'd wonder if they'd be willing to do this in good faith.

Most companies don't do cross-shipping. Those that do require credit card information on file in case the person doesn't ship the product back within a timely manner. You could try and ask them if they will cross-ship since you've had more than 1 return, but don't be surprised if they ask for credit card info to allow it. They seem trustworthy though so I wouldn't worry too much if I had to.

And a 3 year coverage?? Sounds way too good to be true, I was just making sure there isn't anything I'm unaware of, such as:

1) What if I end up with, say, 5 more pixels from the time I got it?
2) What if blacklighting issue becomes relatively worse?

Do they accept it under these conditions?

I just used the Pixel Clock Control utility in Precision X. I havent tweaked anything yet. 126hz has completely no artifact, 127-128hz has one tiny red line artifact, & 129hz and up has the large blue artifacts.

How much higher OC did you get after tweaking, and what did you use?

Late response but that background is awesome. It looks so good that it seems almost surreal when displayed on these monitors.

Edit: and apparently I was sniped tongue.gif No problemo man.

Again credit really goes to the sites in OP. I just had to do some serious digging lol.

Also adding those pics to my collection. thumb.gif

Do they accept it under these conditions?

I recently went through SquareTrade with my QNIX. But it was for the monitor failing (not displaying my computer, and seeing vertical lines when I wiggled my DVI cable in the port). They paid for shipping to a 3rd party service center. The same day it arrived there, I got an email saying that they would reimburse me for the full amount. I think they don't have the parts or the expertise to repair these monitors. My guess is that anyone else who sends their QNIX or X-Star to SquareTrade, for any reason besides defective pixels and backlight bleed, will be reimbursed. SquareTrade does not cover screen imperfections, here is a quote from their contract under what is not covered.
Quote:
Television or personal computer monitor screen imperfections, including "burn-in" or burned CRT phosphor.

Since the eBay sellers list that up to a certain amount of dead/stuck pixels on a monitor is normal, SquareTrade will tell you that it is a preexisting condition.

SquareTrade isn't too good to be true. They are a reputable company with many happy customers, and they cover purchases from eBay and other physical and online stores. The catch here (if you would even call it that) is that they don't cover screen imperfections. They do cover any other malfunction, so I would get it just to be safe from that.

If you buy one of these monitors from eBay, there's nothing really you can do if you get one with some imperfections. If there are more defective pixels than the manufacturer says is ok, or serious backlight bleeding, the manufacturer will take it back, but you're paying for shipping to Korea. That's why this time around I bought from ipsledmonitors.com. They sell the same PLS and K-IPS monitors found on eBay. They're a little more expensive and you still have the same chance of getting a bad one, but you're buying from an American company that offers no question asked returns. The monitors still ship from Korea though, but if you need to return one, they pay for shipping back to their facility in Redondo Beach, CA. I'm currently in the process with that right now. I've gotten super unlucky this past month.

Hope this helps!
