So then how did this guy buy the "MDP" version of the X-star and achieve stable OC at 120Hz?
He doesn't have the multi input version. He has an Xstar DP2710.

Well, the box it came in is clearly labeled as the MDP version, so that's why I'm asking. I'll PM the poster.

Just got mine today and it seems to have pretty bad backlight bleed.
Is this within the norm or should I see if they will swap?



This one is at full brightness, Has some yellowish and blueish tinting

Honestly that looks about normal to me and pretty good compared to other examples. I'm sure you'll barely notice that in use.

Mine has some backlight bleed that is a bit worse than yours (worst in the bottom right corner). Initially I didn't really notice it until I was sitting in a dark room with a dark screen when gaming etc, so I'll probably do the tape mod when I remove the stand and mount on my monitor arm.

Yeah i mostly notice it in dark games and especially watching movies that letterbox at the top and bottom. I think i will try the tape fix when i remove the base as well.

I just remembered, I've had my QNIX since April, sent it to SquareTrade last month and got a new one. Never once did I register either monitor! tongue.gif So here is my official signup post!



147hz is my highest stable, at 148hz my screen gets dark and really shaky, and it gets progressively worse the higher I go. 155hz is my limit. I'm keeping it at 120hz though thumb.gif

One stuck (red) pixel in bottom left corner, barely noticeable. Also have one "malfunctioning" pixel (acts different from a stuck or dead pixel), and this screen flicker when I OC (though it appears to be different from scan lines). Just greatly reduced the flicker by plugging in the cable to my DVI-D port on my gpu instead of my DVI-I.

For more info on my issues, please see here. Issues aside, dang this thing can overclock.

Alright I have a few points to make after using the x-star monitor after a couple of weeks.

Initially I got the monitor to run at 120hz without any problems, except I would get random weird blue or green horizontal lines flashing across the screen when blacks were displayed.
Google says it could be the video card or the monitor. I happen to use an SLI setup so I decided to switch around the video cards and now it runs at 120hz with no blue/green horizontal flashing lines. I suppose the DVI output on one card is faulty.

I also noticed that after using the patcher/cru utility to o/c the monitor DO NOT set the refresh rate using the nvidia control panel. Everytime I used that all my games acted buggy. Always right click desktop > screen resolution > advanced settings > monitor and change it there.

As for adjusting the gamma after overclocking, if you youtube search "quick gamma" it'll show you a tutorial that uses quick gamma to calibrate your monitor fast and easy.

I have also noticed "burn in" or "screen persistence" at 120hz that does go away after a while but everyone should be aware and do their best to prevent it.

I hope this helps some people out!

Has anyone seen or have any good 7680x1440 wallpaper for these monitors? My searches are scarce.

Mine does the same thing when running at 120Hz, flashing colored horizontal lines.

Perfectly smooth when i drop down to 110Hz though.

Subbed. Just clicked buy on the Qnix model, a little apprehensive regards quality and the issue regards customs and delivery but will now just wait patiently, well not patiently at all lol.
