[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 494

post #4931 of 25893
I just got my first XStar from ipsledmonitors. It can OC to 96 but artifacts at 110+, has 1 dead pixel, and minimal BLB. Could the overclock be low because of my single 6950 not being able to handle it? Is it worth it to go for an exchange?

I saw a video by linus that said you need an active display port to dvi-d adapter and it should would although I haven't seen anyone confirm that

It's kind of a big deal. I'm probably selling my desktop to move to a laptop, but I'd like to use a nice monitor while I'm home. I just need portability. The adapters are like $100, unfortunately.
In progress.

I purchased an X-Star from dream-seller last Tuesday and it arrived today.

At 60 hz the monitor looks okay but when viewing a solid gray background I can see a vertical band very slightly darker than the rest of the screen.

At 120 hz there is no artifacting or flickering but the band is more noticeable. The banding isn't very noticeable in general use unless you're looking for it.
Do you guys think this is a decent monitor? (paid 350 CAD total)

Also does the banding actually damage the monitor overtime? Or is this just a property of the monitor that will stay constant.

I believe somewhere earlier in the thread something about changing the pixel clock to improve screen uniformity, can anyone direct me to a link?

This is my first post sorry for all the questions. Good luck to everyone else who ordered a monitor!

Just ordered my screen via Dream-seller. I hope I made the right choice. Hope my 2x GTX 570 will cope until i upgrade one day

Just got mine. No dead pixels and minimal blb. The only problem i have is that I'm having a hard time tilting it. I'm being very delicate as I don't want to break it, but can this monitor not tilt as advertised?

You can't possibly return it for those reasons.

No personal experience myself, but I know that an active DP->DVI-D dual link will work. But it won't OC as well, and costs loads.

If you haven't got it yet just buy the DP version of the X-Star/Qnix - it'll be cheaper and I doubt a laptop GPU would push 120Hz - or try to spend the $100 on a better laptop (if you haven't got that yet) with a DVI-D dual-link out (not sure if you even get those).
