I wouldn't put up with it, but that's just me.

Thanks, I was afraid of that. Mine is sent back already because of a defect so I'll have to remind the seller to send me the correct one this time. All this time I was wondering how people were saying they could press the dark spots on their screen to change the BLB.

110 hz stable (3 days now) without tuning down timing in CRU. Waiting for a 24 awg cable to see whether 120 hz attainable without artifact

Pressing on the dark spots can relieve BLB (slightly,) but it's not the end all be all; you'd want to bend the metal frame flat and potentially do the tap mod to really reduce it significantly. If you're going to press against it, do it lightly using a microfiber cloth, you don't want break anything.

i want the crossover black tune casing/glass plasma coating with the qnix panel/pcb. frown.gif if only the crossover's overclocked...

Get an Overlord PCB?

I have been emailing ipsledmonitors.com and while asking about the difference in labeled refresh rates between Qnix and X-Star, they said this:
Quote:
The X-star DP2710 and QNIX QX2710 are made by the same manufacturer. While the manufacturer provides a different response rate spec for these two monitors, it is likely due to inconsistent methodology. Often GtoG response time measurements are inaccurate so the 2ms delta is within the margin of error.

Also, the manufacturer has indicated that it may stop producing it’s X-star brand, we will likely only stock the QNIX QX2710 going forward.

I've had my finger on the trigger for a matte qnix for a while now, but am now considering a 29" 2560x1080 LG for $450... for increased horizontal field of view in games..... but not sure if it's worth the increased price or decreased overall res outside of games?? Plus I've been reading about 2560x1080's "internal bezel" which sounds right ghastly??

Is there a 2560x1080 monitors thread?

So you guys just meant the internal panel metal frame "bezel" part to be rolled. Ok see I thought you guys meant the tray part removing all those internal light diffuser plastic sheets which would introduce allot of dust via static attraction when you disassembled the panel in the internal lighted portion where you wouldn't want to even have to clean anything introducing defects and streaks let alone introduce dust inbetween these sheets where it would be visible and impossible to clean. Ok I think I'll try that again next time I go internal. See all the answers we need to fix these panels are simple its just a matter of nailing down the process to do the fix while disrupting(or breaking) the panel as little as possible. Even voltmods are simple its just a matter of knowing the steps. Penciling resistors is even easier. It may not be completely necessary but I would still like to have an EDID modeled or copied from the ASUS PB278Q(maybe we need to find someone with one of these panels and get them to give us their EDID info from a reader prog).

Just ordered some DIY audio grade wire(some nice solder, connectors, wiring harni; gonna do a total interal pc wiring functional upgrade short of the PSU) and got a cheap Razer Taipan(40 bucks new in box) off ebay so I have some hardware modding to do in the near future. Still need some multicore silver wire to make my own sata cables. My huge copper shims should be in soon to make some heatsinks with those Wise View LRU4122MOL-Q inverter chips on the back of the internal panel assembly using the back metal cover as the heatsink coupled to the chips via copper shims I got the big 42mm ones off ebay and I ordered 6 to make sure I got the proper height(most likely overkill but considering the price this monitor cost and what its worth(over 1000 dollars easily)). Thats another thing to remember if these monitors were sold in the USA they would be over 1000 dollars retail easily maybe even 1500 for the 110hz or higher(not to mention PLS is a newer technology even than IPS). Who cares about the case and bezel it doesnt matter and really the QNIX pcb is really not all that bad either. HDMI is crap(does it have HDMI from slickdeals is a feature for fools). I had these debates when HDMI came out and I took the stance that Patrick Norton and others did that HDMI was inferior(inferior resolution especially on introduction fewer conductors and audio on the same cable). 125hz Crossover is a development. I bet Shimian and Crossover are now all going to follow the lead.

I am convinced that the reason for this recent jump in resolution and really who we have to thank for all this technology is RED Camera and their introduction of cheap 4k necessitating asia to release 4k(ahead of the schedule the MPAA wants which is the reason the United States lagged behind Japan for what 30 or 40 years with HD technology; I hope this time Hollywood and TV are dragged along to conform and resolution just continually increases until we have the wall sized panels from Total Recall Original Arnold Version) which is Quad Full HD or Ultra HD, causing the release of Wide Quad HD(2560x1440)(2560x1600 resolution is worthless 16:10 is an inferior aspect ratio(bigger black bars on movies or when zoomed into to fit aspect ratio frame lower overall horizontal section(resolution) of the frame displayed also a lower FOV in games) and the extra pixels only weigh down the gpu even more) which is perfect for us and the current state of graphics card processing power. Now OLED is introduced, 4K laser projectors from both RED and LG and more than likely SONY, Panasonic is retooling their entire line for 3d 4k OLED printing to maintain panel dominance(now that Kuro and infinite black technology(only introduced on a few prototype panels from the release Kuro line) is out of the picture and really must be displaced by OLED now but I have yet to read comparisons or see pics) setting the stage for the next jump in panel technology making these WQHD the perfect stepping stones until that time comes.
