The thing that worries me is that the power light on the monitor actually turns off when this occurs, and the screen flashes red as it returns. Should I try to ship it out asap before the 30 days is up or is there anything you guys could suggest?

The power light going off could just mean it's flashing into standby mode. Are you using the same DVI cable? Even if you're using the stock cable, might want to try another one. The one I was given was awful and didn't even fit into the DVI slots correctly. Tough call since you can't reproduce the problem at will.

I'm attempting to overclock my x-star, seems to game alright at 96 hz but when I try to play a video, its just a green screen. Did I miss a setting somewhere?

Edit: Think I found it in the media player classic settings to disable DVXA.

Matte monitors have a coating on the glass that dampens some of the colors and sharpness. Depending on the coating, it's usually not much and nobody really noticed until glossy monitors started getting popular. Once you see a glossy monitor, you'll be envious of how sharp and rich the colors are. Unfortunately glossy monitors are prone to glare, so if you are in an office building, in a heavily lit room, or have an open window to your back or side, you will probably be irritated with the glare. I chose glossy because of how much I liked the Monoprice 27" but unfortunately this monitor is far more glare prone than the Monoprice one. I think it has to do with the brighter backlight and some anti-reflective coating under the glass of the Monoprice monitor. I have never seen the matte Qnix so I cannot comment on it other than I heard it is a very light matte coat. I'm kind of wishing I went that direction but I don't really care since I primarily play games at night.

Received my glossy Qnix. Haven't really inspected it in-detail yet for back light bleed, but after calibration, the colors look as great as my original CrossOver IPS display.
Easily OC'ed to 120hz--loving the smoothness. biggrin.gif

I can't tell what the problem is here. Is it the monitor or my gtx 780?

Have you patched your drivers? I think 90hz is around the 300mhz pixel clock range. Search for Toasty X pixel patch.

Oh yes! Easily OC'd to 120hz on first try. No dead/stuck pixels from what I can see. Guess I got lucky biggrin.gif

Now i need to test some games on it...

My X-Star from Dream Seller arrived unexpectedly today! Tracking estimated Thursday, but I got the call to pick it up this morning. By the time I got home with it, I had about half an hour to play with it before work. It looks fantastic though, I couldn't find a dead or stuck pixel in a quick examination, and the BLB isn't any worse than my Acer 20" has. I only got a quick round of World of Tanks in, and a run of Valley, but holy crap did it blow me away. Pics soon so I can join the club officially.

i dont know whether to go with the qnix glossy or tempered glass. anyone have a pic side by side or any suggestions??? i'm so confused. i've been flip flopping between the 2 for the past week. I have a glossy crossover IPS right now and I love it, but i really wonder how awesome the tempered glass would look....

Glass=gray blacks and is far more reflective vs. glossy

glass left vs. glossy

Same here. I ordered from them. Wasn't too happy considering I ordered the glossy and they didn't have any available, but I'll live.
