[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 482

post #4811 of 25887
Hey everyone! I received my qnix monitor today and I am having some issues with it. When I start my pc up, there is a blue vertical line on the left edge of the screen that appears on the both the asus load up screen and the windows 7 loading page. There is some wierd pixelation going on as well. There can also be some blue lines flickering across the screen. The image on the screen itself also has some tremoring going on. Is this an issue with the monitor, the dvi cable, or is it my video card? My current rig has and AMD FX-8350, Asus M5A99FX motherboard, and running a sapphire 7950. Any help would be appreciated. Just pretty bummed out that the monitor is having this problem frown.gif


EDIT : Upon further inspection, I saw that one of the pins on the dvi wire was bent. Put it back in place and everything is running quite well now!!! Quite excited. The only issue I see is some lightbleeding on the bottom left but nothing that bothers me too much at the moment.

Thanks. Some of those sites I added myself, but most were recommended to be added to the list by y'all. So credit goes back to all of you, the community

Sorry this is off topic but, how is the BF4 Alpha? biggrin.gif
post #4815 of 25887
Guys i am thinking of buying 1 of these to play bf4 on. I currently have a dell U2412hm, I either buy this or a viewsonic ips 27" 1080p. I will buy either from amazon.

I have a 3570k OC to 4.5Ghz and 2 GTX 680 in sli with 8gb of ram. Will this be sufficient for bf4 or even bf3? If so can someone post their frames on bf3 so i can have an average.

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.
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!

Thank you so much. I'm definitely considering squaretrade as I haven't come across many people who's had these korean monitors for over a year. Who knows how long they'll last?

Repped!

Dude 680 sli? No problem. I was running BF3 averaging 80fps at 2560x1440 with everything maxed (except only 2x msaa) on a SINGLE 680. Although that 680 was overclocked to about 1.25ghz.

I bought a 780 at the same time I bought this monitor because of the same worries you had. Now that I have the 780 of course I am keeping it and selling the 680 (I am a OCN member after all tongue.gif). In hindsight the 780 was pretty much a unnecessary purchase though.

The only good thing is the increased memory interface and size. That will probably start to show after a year or so in some games. For BF3 and BF4 I would say you are more than fine though.

Finally someone with a 680. LOL. I plan on buying it then i don't care for the MSAA will leave it of since i see it is irrelevant at 1440p res. Also my pc is fully water cooled so i will oc the 2 680 providing they remain stable and stuff. Thanks for the swift reply.
