[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 492

post #4911 of 25887
Do you guys think that I can run 3 Qnix's off of a GTX 670 2GB? 2 @ 120Hz & 1 @ 96Hz (already got a usb-powered displayport to dual-link dvi adapter)? No heavy-duty stuff, just madVR for 1080p videos @ max settings on a single monitor.

Just checked my tracking details from green-sum and noticed that it was held for tax/vat, rang them up and had to pay £12.20 (which isnt too bad, even though I got the seller to mark it at £36 and gift?). Anyways, tried to see if I could get it delivered today but no joy and said it will be here tomorrow biggrin.gif
Overall, paid £205+£12 for a Perfect Pixel Qnix from green-sum, and I only put through my order last thursday biggrin.gif

Used this wonderful thread and the others on overclock to finally push myself to build a computer and match it with a QNIX 2710. I ordered my Matte non-pixel perfect from Green-Sum on ebay for approx 280$ total.

My Impressions of everything:

1) Green-Sum was probably the best seller I have dealt with on ebay ever. The package shipped from korea to CA, USA in 24 hours! The box was super well packaged with 3 layers of thick bubble-wrap. Green-Sum also messaged me a few days later asking if i was happy with everything and encouraged me to let him know if anything goes awry regarding the monitor. Very impressed with this seller.

2) My monitor is absolutely stunning, it blows me away in terms of color reproduction and games look/play phenomenal. The stand has been a non-issue even though I can tell it is not top notch. I have only looked briefly for dead/stuck pixels and have found none, however I do have some minor back-light bleed on the bottom right(never notice it unless its an all-black load screen. Also my screen appears to sit crooked in the bezel by a very small bit, with the bottom left of the screen poking up.

3) Given the price, service, and how stunning the monitor is I am extremely happy. Gaming was the main reason for this monitor and so far playing Bioshock Infinite and Tomb Raider have been great. Truly a huge leap from a 360 or a mediocre rig pushing med settings on 1080p which is what i was used to.

I will post pictures soon. Just thought I would contribute back!

I'm coming from a 120 Hz Asus TN panel, at 96hz+ there is little ghosting in BF3 at high refresh rates. Very similar to the Asus non-Lightboost 120hz.

Is it normal to see this amount of glow?
post #4917 of 25887
maybe it's due to the monitor not being capable of handling over 96Hz that well.

I must say there is lot's of ghosting on my ASUS ve247H looks like a blue trail behind an image.

It depends on the light shining on the screen. does it look fine when you play a game, view a movie or pictures?

Your monitor is 60hz. The tail will be less noticeable at 120fps @ 120hz. Now the tail will still be there at 120hz. If you want no tail at all (aka motion blur), you have to get a CRT or a Lightboost monitor.

But does this screen look better or worse that's the question

In my experience coming from a 120hz TN Samsung to this, there is apparent ghosting but it's not bad enough to make me switch back to the TN. The colors and resolution make up for it by far.
