[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 515

post #5141 of 25893
:thumb:I got my Qnix from Ebay seller (Green Sum) 2 days ago. Ordered on Saturday 7-27-2013, delivered on Wed 7-31-2013 (Korea to US). I was looing for info on Nvidia GTX 275 compatibility before I decide to purchase Qnix but I couldn't find any information. I went ahead and purchase Qnix without knowing it would work with my GPU GTX 275. I am able to OC to 96hz. This monitor is stunting . Thanks OCN and all member for many useful information. thumb.gif

A 275 is going to struggle at that resolution in games pretty bad.
In progress.

Just sharing you guys an update with my progress so far with ipsledmonitors.com (the only seller that offers free returns for defects to the monitor).

After 5 days of shipping cross country, they sent me an email today that they've received the monitor, that all QNIX and X-Stars are out of stock, and that the Korean seller should have more in stock Monday or Tuesday KST. Once it ships I have to wait another 5 days for it to get here, so this is a lot of waiting. They did admit that this monitor has a fair share of flaws, so that was pretty cool at least.

They did say something days earlier along the lines of "we'll see if we can track down a better quality monitor for you," but they never answered my question as to what that means. They did say that I'm in front of the queue for getting a monitor.

If all this hassle means that I receive a perfect monitor in the end, I'll be happy and won't have any complaints. But if I receive another bad one I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

Now my experience with them is getting a little mixed. The guy is taking days to reply back to my email, and even then he hasn't answered my question about how they are finding a better quality monitor, which I've asked twice now. I don't know if he forgot about it or is dodging the question, but that's a huge deciding factor for if I want a return or a replacement. I hate to admit it but I have a feeling he just was saying what I wanted to hear so that I wouldn't ask for a refund.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Borderless windowed mode should use whatever refresh rate you use in the desktop. I've never experienced a game that doesn't behave like that, and CS:GO works in that way for me. Try running it with these launch options:

-h 1440 -w 2560 -novid -window -noborder

Thank you for this info. Newegg has served me well LOL

Has anyone had an issue with the desktop refresh rate reverting to 60hz occasionally? It seems to specifically happen after the display goes into sleep mode, and then once it's in 60hz it cannot be switched back to my desired refresh rate. The option isn't available in the dropdown menu. Rebooting fixes the problem.

I had this happen for a while. Re-intalling my drivers (clean install) and re-applying the patch fixed (never seen it since).

I will say that I run my monitor 10 clicks up from bottom (120cd/m2) and PWM is not noticeable at all until you get to much lower brightness levels.

Sorry it's not PWM, but maybe will someone will know of a Korean IPS that is PWM-free. Good luck!

Same here I don't notice PWM until at very low brightness settings that I never use.
