[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 617

post #6161 of 25893
I have a single solid horizontal line about 60% from the bottom edge to edge. Line of dead pixels? Totally lost cause? It's my second monitor from dream-seller. The Shimian was fine but I thought I'd get an overclockable one. Any advice on fixing or what to do if not fixable is welcome.

I'll contribute my story of Dream-Seller then, while we're at it.

I ordered on a Sunday. Nothing happened until Wednesday. I wrote a message, asking why the delay. I got an automoated message back that dream-seller is out of office for the next six days, because vacation. Nothing more, no estimated date of shippment, no nothing. Ok, I thought, that's odd. I sent another message saying that I needed the monitor for the weekend so I wanted to cancel the order. So, order cancelled, I bought from accessoirieswhole. A few hours later I got a mail (not automated this time) saying the monitor was shipped the previous day and they are very terribly sorry and all. I got a tracking number. The tracking number stated the monitor was still not picked up by FedEx, so I wrote them that I canceled my order and they should stop the shipment. No reply. I wrote again, saying it reflects badly on their costumer support if they wouldn't cancel the order. The monitor was shipped the day after. accessoirieswhole's monitor was already on its way. At this stage I was thinking: ok, my own fault, I should have been more patient, now I will just sell the one that has the worse performance thumb.gif.

I was frenetically refreshing the tracking pages all day ofc (as you do rolleyes.gif) and the Dream-Seller monitor wouldn't move from South Korea for a day. Then I got the message that Dream-Seller contacted FedEx and the shipment was aborted. The monitor was returned, I got my money back and all is well.

I don't really know what I should think of Dream-Seller after this. They were incredibly evasive and slack until I put some pressure on them. On the other hand, they fixed the "problem" after all. But it only came this far because they claim "shipping the next day" and then after almost three days NOTHING happened. And then all you get is "sorry, you have to wait another 6 days before we even get it wrapped up and shipped"...

All in all: I would avoid that trader and go for accessoirieswhole or green-sum instead, even if they are a little more expensive.

I don't mean to spam the thread with this, but has anyone heard from dream-seller recently? It's been 9 days and my order still hasn't shipped.

Just received mine, glad to report all is fine. There are no dead pixels at all and minimal blb, lower right centre. The interweb text is tiny though, need to change some settings, or get some binoculars.

Added a custom color@60hz profile which works nicely. Just overclocked and set up 2 resolution speeds, 100hz and 120hz both are fine no problems. Need to install a 120hz color profile now to combat the darkness.

I believe I have followed the procedure for overclocking correctly but need to ask reference running games at the clocks, The ufo refresh rate test still says 60hz valid even though every other place says 120hz including in game bf3 settings


Here is a screen shot confirmation re my res settings in catalyst http://gyazo.com/85da48ae7b09e63134870d3277366749





Thanks in advance

Which browser are you using? I know Chrome is able to detect 120Hz, but not all browsers can.

Normally the issue is something to do with precisionx/cru for Nvidia, but there is only one way to do it with AMD so I don't think you could have done it wrong.

I am using chrome, every possible way is showing 120hz as selected and available except the ufo test.

I had an email this morning from Dream Seller apologizing for the delay, and that there will be one more delay but my monitor will ship on the 28th, and there will be no further delays. I hope so!

Anyone want to swap wink.gif

I'd rather have perfect pixels than 120hz haha. I have one stuck green pixel on the right that's only noticebale on dark backgrounds. Mine runs 120hz flawlessly all day.
