[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 501

post #5001 of 25887
Hey guys,

I am thinking about getting one of these monitors but there are a few questions that I need answered first;
- does multi input (+HDMI,D-SUB) limit OCablity in any way? Does it have any disadvantage or slow them down in any way?
- if I use my notebook and connect it with these displays via HDMI, would 1080p content scale normally,
or would it be letterboxed? Eg: trying to watch a movie from my notebook/tablet (GTX 555m/Tegra3 if it matters).

1. Multi Input monitors have increased input lag and they don't OC very well either (around 65-70hz usually, if at all). So I wouldn't recommend it for FPS gaming if you were even the slightest bit sensitive to input lag.

2. If you connect it to your notebook u should be able to configure scaling through your video card. You can set it to scale or to have borders. For the tablet, I think it would scale but not sure how it would look. Haven't tried hooking up the tablet to a 1440p monitor before since I just use the PC.

So just overclocked mines today and all the flash videos(YouTube) are just showing a green screen, anyone know how to fix this?

I received yesterday my X-star matte version pixel perfect. They shipped it without any additional protective cover nor bubble wrap; only the plain box. As expected, the box has a bump in one on the corners and one of the front side was smashed. After taking the monitor out has no damage at all.
The screen is, indeed, pixel perfect. Small light bleed from the top but nothing major, easily overclocked to 110Hz; I saw vertical lines when I tried 120Hz. Compared to my Asus VS247H-P, color is much more defined and the image is more accurate and bright. The time response is the same or above the Asus; that is 2ms. Definitely, it is way better for gaming than the Dell U2713HM that I returned because gaming was like seen a slide view presentation. Very happy with this screen.

Thanks a lot for the info, I guess then it would be better to aim for a bypass model and ignore those extra ports.

DVI-D is the only connection a PC enthusiast / gamer should need anyways. Agreed its a great gaming monitor. thumb.gif

At least until 4k is affordable @ 120hz!

Asus VH236H has HDMI/DVI/VGA inputs and is tested to have under 1 frame or under 16ms of input lag. I'm not sure where the correlation between multi input and input lag is coming from.

The $269 price just influenced me to order one... hopefully there's no defects. o.o
