What the holy fk.

I purchased my monitors from accessorieswhole early monday, and they'll be arriving tomorrow by UPS.

This is ridiculous!

Can anyone help me?
I've had the monitor for about a month. It's been overclocked to around 100 hz just fine. Then the blue light started to flicker weirdly, and then the monitor turned off.
when I plug the cable in, I hear a faint pop. The monitor will light up, then it will go black again, and light will continue to blink..

Sounds like a power supply issue. Tried a different power supply?

Weird question. Why would 120 Hz cause me to have internet issues? I literally get 1Mbps when at 120 Hz but 25Mbps at anything lower.

Would just any generic plug work?

Anyone else not able to get 2 or more monitors stable without it flashing grey, blue, or green?

So I can overclock both monitors to 120Hz but if I run the FPS test on both at the same time, my FPS average in the 50s. If I run each at a time, I get 120 FPS. This is after upgrading to the 780.

On m 580, I could OC both to 120Hz and run the tester and get 120 FPS on both monitors at the same time.

Where is this change that is needed? I can't see where I recommend any seller in the OP

I wasn't sure, but it looks like under "trends" - Monitors Sold, Grouped by Ebay Seller - dreamseller has the second most sales. So people think he is a good seller rolleyes.gif

I realise that wasn't your intention, but perhaps a line (in bold+red) saying "WARNING: Just because a seller has many sales does NOT make them any good. e.g. avoid Dreamseller"

I thought that is what you might have been referring to. Those trend graphs are simply data analysis on member submissions, no definitive suggestions or recommendations. Of course there can be the adverse effect of biasing where people only buy what is the most purchased, based from that data. I will consider putting a small disclaimer there. Edit: I put up a disclaimer.

Yeah no kidding, I've seen his listings on the front-page of slickdeals. I don't think it's up to the OP to endorse one seller, wntrsnowg has maintained a list of purchases (good or bad). Tons of anecdotal information and speculation around here.

If there was a clear cut scammer then sure, but basically all I hear is "OMG I ordered on Friday and it didn't show up on my doorstep in 3 days".

edit:

Not to mention all the nonsense about one seller having better "pixel perfect" monitors or BLB than the others. Look at the sample sizes involved its a dice-roll anywhere you buy.


However, I agree with junkrok. I am not here to endorse any particular seller. I was even approached by a certain seller and bribed to make a product they sell look amazing, but I turned it down and reported it to the admins. If I have some definitive and repeating proof against dream-seller, than I will start to throw up warnings and advisement against them. Until then, im sitting back and letting the discussion continue...

For what its worth, I have heard bad experiences about dream-seller too, but no one is bringing them up. Its a dice-roll. If it were guaranteed and perfect every time, these wouldn't be so cheap!

I have a similar issue with my GPU. I have a non-OC monitor and i tried to OC this monitor and that test website shows messed up numbers. Could be an error in the website, or your GPU cannot handle the bandwidth required for 2 OC'd monitors

Hi guys, i just bought the X-Star Matte and omg. I thought id try a new seller thinking that he might be sending out the best panels. also he was cheapest, I bought it on eBay ended up about 350$ AUD -- I'm Australian. It was fast as postage.. i ordered Thursday. posted Friday in Australia on Saturday delivered on Monday (Due to Australian couriers don't like working weekends) I just opened the box no damage to the outside even though it was just the cardboard box, no bubble wrap like other companies are doing. BUT STILL no dents or anything to the box. Opened it up and checked the panel no damage. jeez they do have a nice finish in person I'm surprised, Plugged the DVI in while computer and panel where off, screwed it in.. the cable seems cheap but I managed to get it tight, Plugged in the power for the panel and BOOM red green ETC. looked good, Turned the PC on and wow nice biggrin.gif Straight away i went into my NVIDIA settings and managed to get it to 80 hz but no higher.. I am upgrading my graphics drivers now i am running a GTX 550 Ti. BEST THING- No dead pixels
AND I cant even see any light bleed!!! biggrin.gif
Seller was a new one in town with only about 550 rep from ebay..
Seller: ta_planet_au ( 564 )
Im extremely happy with it. now time to get it to 120 HZ, ill keep posting.

Thanks :DDD

Update: Managed to get up to 96 Hz with new drivers!
