[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 624

post #6231 of 25893
Thanks for sharing (+rep), I think I will stick with the QNIX (if I ever get it).

Dreamseller said he can upgrade me to Pixel Perfect QNIX free of charge, but I just realized that I paid $20-$30 more for the Glossy versionso the only thing he's actually "hooking me up" with is the pixel perfect and from what I've read is that pixel perfect doesn't guarantee anything. So if I get a dead pixel even though it's PP, i won't be able to return for exchange or refund, right?

Should I just cancel my order and or take the offer of PP Matte QNIX for $279?

As for the anti-glare coating, I have my Qnix side-by-side with an ASUS matte finish monitor, and the Qnix is much less "matte" than my other monitor. Its actually a nice blend between matte and glossy. It doesn't distort image quality nearly as much as other matte finishes I've seen.

However, it IS closer to matte than it is to glossy, but I think you'd be happy with it thumb.gif

Depending on the seller, "Pixel Perfect" can mean different things. I believe DreamSeller guarantees 0-2 dead pixels on his "Pixel Perfect" displays, compared to anywhere from 0-5 on the normal displays.

I was really worried about getting dead/stuck pixels on my monitor, and it turns out I did get one. But honestly, the pixel density on these is high enough that its REALLY hard to notice. I know where mine is and i still have to look pretty hard to see it. I wouldn't stress it smile.gif

That said, I would recommend just buying a NON pixel perfect display. If it saves you any money that is, not sure what the pricing equates to since hes "hooking you up" and all.

+1 to this. It took me FOREVER to even find my dead pixel. It was really hard to see and still is. Bright pixel on the other hand would irritate me.

That's a week of shipping, I thought most people get theirs in about 3 days?

Dreamseller doh.gif

Monday is a holiday. Probably nothing moves in shipping. Which is typical of most holidays

So I tried searching in this thread for this so please forgive me if this has been abundantly talked to death but I'd like to know what my options are for a high vram idle clock on my 7970 at 120hz.

It is definitely not an issue temperature wise as the idle temps are about 51c with the idle vram usage at my overclocked value (1525 at 1.20v).

If it makes a difference I am using MSi Afterburner on AMD's 13.8 beta 2 drivers, CRU is on Automatic-LCD Reduced and CCC has the reduce DVI function ticked. I was reading that this could be an Afterburner problem and a solution could be that I add a 110hz refresh rate and put it on while in Windows then just adjust back to 120hz when I am gaming. When I get home from work I might just try a cru reset then start from scratch to see if it helps any.

Am I right in assuming that these monitors will not do 3D?

120hz active shutter 3D (Nvidia 3DVision) will not work.

To me, it's just bizarre. I would never think that monitor refresh rate would have anything to do with my wifi performance. The only thing I can think of is the signal might be leaking from the cable at a frequency that distorts my Wifi band. The monitor cable is probably touching my antenna in the back of my computer(the slots are on top of each other). Will try to mess with that tonight as well.

So an update on my progress. 120Hz brings my Wifi speeds to a crawl while on 122Hz everything works perfectly fine. So strange... Are there any drawbacks to staying on such a random number like 122Hz?

Got my Qnix yesterday from Green-Sum. Happy - no dead/stuck pixels and only minor bleeding at the bottom when viewing a black screen. When I first inspected the screen I did notice that there was some clouding visible in 3 distinct and quite large spots near the center. Thankfully after using it for a few hours this appears to have completely cleared up.

I opened it up today (did not enjoy popping the plastic) to remove the stand neck but also figured I'd try the bleed tape fix. I got so far as unscrewing the metal frame supports before I completely lost my nerve. I could not get that metal frame off easily and was convinced I was going to end up wrecking something if I kept jimmying around trying to force it off. Gave up. rolleyes.gif

Haven't tried overclocking yet nor applying colour profiles - but it looks great out-of-the-box. There's definitely more motion blur compared to my 3ms TV but it's not a huge downgrade.

Tried Bioshock Infinite and was still hitting 60fps+ at 1440p on Ultra with a 7970. Had to apply triple buffering through Radeon Pro for the few moments it did drop frames.

You should stick to multiples of 24 if you watch 24fps movies and TV shows. If not, I don't think it matters.

The last guy having issues with his Wi-fi changed the frequency settings on his router to resolve/avoid the conflict.
