damn the tempered glass looks nice but the reflection does not... this only confused me even more frown.gif
the right thing to do is go with the glossy... the aesthetically pleasing thing to do is go with the tempered.

Yes, I had to patch them to even overclock it in the first place AFAIK.

Everything works perfectly fine including that validation/test link. Games even run fine in windowed mode, but the minute I throw up exclusive full screen it starts flickering and crashes the driver unless I back it down to 85hz.

So I got my monitor today. Looks great, OCs to 120Hz with little issue. However, after running on 120 for a while, I noticed some burn, so I ran a burn fixer (video that flashes red, green, blue), and now I see some dead/suck pixels. I didn't even know that was possible. Does anyone know what I can do???

Thinking of ordering a Glossy QNIX or XStar from AccessoriesWide - anyone have their shipment marked as a gift or sample? If so - have you had any problems getting through Customs? I'm in Canada so any experience from there would be welcome.

Thanks!

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.

Thanks for the reply!

The Matte on this is definitely not very heavy. At certain angles you can see light reflecting off of it, but never in front of you. It's a great balance.

Monitor finally came today, had to go to the FedEx distro to pick it up because they came while I was a work. Totally worth it. Was going to say that the panel had two dead pixels in the bottom right area but I can't seem to find them anymore. Black magic maybe? wth.gif

Anyways there is BLB along the bottom. I put a strip of electrical tape along the bottom of the panel when I was pulling it apart to take the stand off. It seemed to help lessen the original spot a little but another area popped up along the bottom a few inches away. I am not sure that I actually did the tape right. Was kinda winging it because I hadn't actually seen someone else going through the actual process of putting on the tape. I had read about people doing it this way and that way and decided to just put a strip all the way across the bottom since that was the only side of the panel with bleed. Any feedback would be appreciated.

And has anyone else noticed that the vesa mount holes seem rather shallow? The screws that came with my arm work find on my 24" ASUS monitor but they don't go in all the way on this X-Star.

They're very shallow. Go to your local hardware store and get some free spinning nuts for metric 4 screws. They provided the perfect amount of thickness to get a good fit.

Thanks, I have it currently jury-rigged with some washers only on the top two screws and a folded piece of paper along the bottom of the mount. The people on these forums are always the most helpful!

BTW your rig is sexy gl0ry. Love the white/black theme. Was thinking about doing that when I do a custom loop in the next few months. Need to find some of those white single braided cords for my AX750 too.
