The damage kinda looks like a Locking Latch struck it from a Delivery Door Cube Van, in which case, the subsidiary Delivery Co. of DHL (Purolator CDA) would probably be responsible and it probably happened right at my front door.



What got me about the delivery is that the Girl delivering it (I did not see the delivery van as I live in a 2nd story apt) did not request that I sign for it. I actually called DHL, some 20 minutes after receiving it, and reported the damage before they had logged the delivery completion in their OnLine Tracking Report.

In fact DHL has not completed an Online delivery Tracing Time and Date and it's been 3 days.

Geez that is horrible, hope everything works out ok and i'm sure you'll get a free replacement.

I'm going to be buying the "Qnix QX2710 Evolution II " on craiglist.
The seller is going to let me inspect the monitor while its hooked up to his computer.

What should I look for?
what is the best way to check for lightbleed?

thanks

The remaining mystery is that I have no idea why after running CRU I lose 60Hz 32-bit color as a "native" option.

I guess I'll reinstall the 320.xx drivers, repatch, and retry with CRU.

The reason I want to see both resolutions as "native" is because when I'm not gaming I switch back to 96Hz. I have 2 monitors connected and if I run the Qnix at 96 Hz all the time neither video card downclocks. If I run Qnix at 60Hz then one of my video cards downclocks like normal.

With respect to CRU, it took me a while to figure out what to do in terms of editing, copying, adding, pasting in manual etc. The OP instructions are kind of vague. I learned how to use CRU from reading the thread rather than the OP.

I did a fresh (clean) install of the 320.18 Nvidia drivers. I rebooted. Ran ToastyX's full patcher. Rebooted. Ran CRU and created a custom resolution for 96Hz and rebooted.

Nvidia control panel is now working, I have 2 native resolutions, one for 60Hz and one for 96Hz. But when I start up Borderlands 2, it is not running at 96Hz, it's still at 60. When I overclock my Qnix with Precision X, the game will play at 96Hz.

Even though Precision X is saying the monitor is running at 96Hz, it's not applying to games now. Anyone have a fix?

I would rather overclock with ToastyX's patcher + CRU (I can reach 96Hz with a lower pixel clock than EVGA Precision X), but I'm having a lot of problems with that method vs. just using Precision X.

If you're going during the day, bring a thick black sheet with you and drape it over yourself and the monitor and load a black image. If you want to mess with the guy, start poking the sheet rapidly while making strange noises.

If you're interested in overclocking it, it's going to be a bit more of an ordeal if he isn't already doing it. Read up on the original post to find instructions and ask the guy if it's okay to try.

Try ordering the resolutions in CRU so 96hz is first. You can also fully remove 60hz so that games don't even detect it as a valid refresh rate.

One way you can test it. Bring a movie that has black borders. Turn down all the lights in the room if you can. Play it. Look at the black borders and see if you can see any back light bleeding through when it's in actual use.

To see where to look for back light bleed when the movie is playing, first open up MS Paint and hit F11. Brightness should be where you like to keep it at home. It will show you where to look when the movie is playing for any bleeding that would ruin your experience when you do.

This will hold true if you're playing games that have black borders or if the colors are being crushed from the bleeding through.

For dead pixels open MS Paint and with white back ground hit F11 and get up close on it to look for black dots or trapped dust. If you spot any you'll know where to look. Open up your favorite web site (OCN) and see if the dead pixels will bother you when your actually using it to surf or read documents.

The question would be if you do find faults, is to ask yourself if you can live with the defects and if its worth it based on the price you paid. smile.gif

You have an amazingly good situation IMO.

First of all, use this website: http://www.flexcode.org/lcd2.html

You can use the black and white backgrounds to check for back light bleed and dead pixels respectively.

Second, these monitors are all a lottery, if you can actually INSPECT it YOURSELF before buying, you might actually get one of the GOOD monitors for a CHEAPER price than some who have paid more and got a worse one. You also save yourself the risk of receiving a monitor that was damaged during shipping, or getting a faulty power supply or cable... You DO lose out on the '1 year warranty' thing but my crossover 27Q started failing after 11 months and I haven't heard anything back from 'the manufacturer' through my seller even though he kept telling me he'd find out, so I wouldn't really value those anyway.

One word of caution is I suggest you make sure you're using it for at least 5-15minutes just in case you start to see flickering or pulsing of the backlight or some other weird issues that others have reported (not just on this Qnix but the other monitors as well).
