[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 576

Wow the prices for these monitors are steadily going up...
post #5752 of 25893
I pulled a risky trigger on it and here I am trying 1080p on this monitor.

All I did is change the resolution on windows 7 to 1080p via right click desktop and then screen resolution. I did not mess around with video card settings at all for my AMD 6870. It is probably the gpu that is doing this but there are no black borders just as I wanted for normal browsing or for games. This is the same result one gets on the U2713HM when putting it at 1080p which has a built in scalar. I don't notice any fuzziness at this res.
I guess my phone camera cannot capture the image properly but it looks a lot better than the photo. Basically it looks same as 1080p looks on U2713HM and better than S2740L due to below mentioned smaller physical pixels thing.

So for ppl that wanna use this for 1080p on a desktop, go ahead, it works without borders for desktop browsing and games even without having a scalar built in cuz gpu does the work.

Reasons/Benefits of this:
-1440p text is too small for your eyes and increasing dpi messes up some UI stuff and some in game settings
-1080p text on this monitor looks sharper compared to 1080p on another 27" monitor that is native 1080p like the Dell S2740L or that Benq MVA panel ppl get for ~$200. Reason is cuz 1440p monitor has smaller physical pixels compared to a native 1080p monitor.
-This monitor is about the same price as Dell S2740L while being a lot better (ok maybe a few more bucks when factoring in customs; ~$296 all in for S2740L vs this cost me ~$330 all in)

BL bleed:
I tried 3 U2713HM monitors before returning them and two had abt the same levels of BL bleeding as this and one had worst than this. BL bleed not noticeable when lights are on or daytime. Maybe I lucked out on this one. No dead pixels on this or the three U2713HM monitors that I tried.

Overall I am very happy with this as it is 90% of the U2713HM for a fraction of the price; ~$330 all in for this vs. $624.xx all in for the U2713HM when it was on sale for $540. These don't suffer from the horrible checkerboard pattern over white colour that the U2713HM shows. Blacks were a bit darker on the U2713HM though at 50% brightness, I have this at 50% brightness too and tried other levels but same result.

PS. settings in my gpu:

Can anyone maybe tell me a step by step instruction on how to fix the backlight bleed by pushing the panel, I'm still not sure how it might works though

I know by opening it up and using tape it can fix it but risk of dead pixel is there
I've mine with pretty bad backlight bleed

So my flickering issue is not solved with another cable. When I enable my SLi on my GTX570's I get flickering on stock 60Hz and when I disable it it works. I tried both cards and they work 100%

Flickering only happens in games so looks like my bottom slot is not working anymore frown.gif oh well need to upgrade soon anyway so maybe sell cards and upgrade to 780 GTX or new radeon cards

Hello lef1337. Congrats on your new QNIX. I see it's your first post on OCN.....Welcome aboard. smile.gif

The ICC profiles for different over clocking and Hz profiles is located on the first page under Color Calibration Profiles and How to install them

Under the same 'spoiler' you will see a link for How to install Color Calibration Profiles on TFT Central
