[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 677

post #6761 of 25891
I'm so close to picking one of these up. However, I want to make sure I go with a good seller in case something goes wrong. I'm currently between either ipsledmonitors.com, because of their warranty, and accessories whole on ebay, due to certain monitors having a perfect pixel guarantee. Unfortunately, ipsledmonitors.com doesn't guarantee perfect pixels, although their warranty does cover dead pixels of any amount, but accesories whole doesn't guarantee no backlight bleeding. It seems as if ipsledmonitors.com covers backlight bleeding in their warranty as well, but I'm not entirely sure. Can anyone shed light on this? If so, ipsledmonitors.com would be the no brainer.

I'm going to be buying one of these in the near future. How does the Matte and Glossy finishes look on these? Which one would you suggest? Also I see all the Qnix going for 300+ and the X-Star at 280. Should I just go with the cheaper one?

Agreed all indications are that this is the case. IPSLED cannot presently offer replacements only refunds. Not really surprised as they initially went down in price earlier in the summer despite steadily growing interest and sales. At least compared to when I bought in May. First hit eBay late March/early April iirc.

Still having trouble getting the overclock working. I actually got windows to say that it's 96/120hz (though that happened once before and it didnt work again for a long time), but using the online frame test thing, it still says its 60fps and 60hz. In game the FPS with v-sync went to 60 so I thought it was finally working, but at 96 hz it was still at 60fps with v-sync so im confused.

Run the Pixel Patcher - restore if you have to, reboot - run it again - then reinstall patched values, save and reboot.

Run CRU - set to LCD Reduced and set resolution to 2560x1440 and refresh to 96hz, 120hz, reboot.

Once you get back into windows you should be able to select the new refresh rates, fire up chrome - head over to blurbusters.com and try the UFO motion tests - it should tell you what hz youre running. But a quick and dirty test is to just move your mouse in a circle against a dark background youll see A LOT more mouse icons trailing your movment.

I went with ipsledmonitor.com for the same reason, the warranty. Also, just so you know, even without buying their 3 year warranty, you still get the 30 days for a hassle free shipping/RMA service, the 3 year warranty is just an extension of that guarantee.

Even though I paid 20 bucks more since they don't have free shipping, I felt more comfortable due to the reasons above and they respond to emails very fast (took an hour between my first email to getting a response). Note too it still ships from korea even though the company is base in the US.

How do you exactly remove the metal frame around the panel? I'm hoping i can just add crumpled up paper underneath the panel - if the cause is truly that the weight of it is on one spot near the middle

If not - i'm going to have to remove the metal frame and try and straighten it out - are there any tricks/tips to removing it?

I did all of that and it says 60fps and 60hz on the UFO motion tests

Have you tried deleting all the CRU instances of your monitor? Maybe its not using the active one when it should
