[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 608

post #6071 of 25888
Very much enjoying this beautiful piece of gear along with my SLI'd 760s, but I've run into an incredibly annoying problems.

My QNIX 27" 2560x1440 randomly goes into stand-by mode, and the only way to get video back is to reboot. This has happened most frequently at steady-state (no foreground programs or apps running), but a few times it has also gone into stand-by while loading web pages or when I open the CPU-Z and Core Temp tools, for example.

Any ideas why this is happening?

I thought it was b/c I was running an "uneven" triple monitor set up of [1920x1080] - [2560x1440] - [1920x1080], but I've disco'd the two 1920s, and still, the 2560x1440 all by itself (as the only monitor in use) still goes into stand-by under the conditions mentioned above.

FWIW, I have the 320.49 drivers for my GPU, and I haven't OC'd the monitor at all.
I did pull in the ASUS profile though, could that be the problem. Maybe I didn't do it completely or correctly?
Could the SLI setup be screwing things up? I can go single-card for a stretch and see if there's any difference, of course.

A follow up to my backlight issue, green-sum said they needed a bunch of high-resolution photos and were going to open a claim with UPS. Sigh.

He seems very slow just based on what experience I have with him. I'm trying to cancel an order with him because I wanted to get a pixel perfect version from another dealer who guarantees 0 dead pixels.

Dream-seller hasn't refunded me yet and it's already been over 10 hours since he said he'd refund me.

Speaking of, is Pixel-Perfect worth it if the seller guarantees 0 dead pixels? Price is 359, which is about 60-70 dollars more per monitor give or take.

Got my Qnix 2710 from Green Sum last night.

Zero dead/stuck pixels (I did not pay for pixel perfect), very minimal backlight bleed (and I can only see it if I'm on a pure black background). It also easily clocks to 120hz, but I hate how dark it gets, so I'm still working on the icc profiles to find one that makes it bearable

It's gorgeous. For $270, it was an amazing purchase.

I want to find some pictures that will really show off the color ability of the monitors. Anyone have a few recommendations? (I've checked google image search, I was looking for more specifics)

Thanks!

There are links to 1440P collections at various sites in post #1 of this thread. Though another guy here awesomely made and uploaded a .zip of many great ones from all of them which is a huge timesaver for others. It may be linked in the OP; if not I can upload to my Skydrive later for you. Happy to help a bloke from the UK! thumb.gif

No one has answered this question yet,

How annoying/ugly is the bezel in person? In pictures, debezeled looks a billion times better, but if it isn't bothersome then I probably wouldn't go through the hassle of trying to modify anything other than taking out the stem.

That's opinion really matter.. everyone will have a different answer. You'd really just need to find out for yourself.

Yeah IMO the worst part of the bezel is that it's glossy and my screen is matte.

I've been looking through some of the listed sites, and I've found a few good ones. But yes, the .zip would be much appreciated. I didn't see a link to it, so I'd be quite grateful if you could link it for me.

Thanks mate!
