[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 681

post #6801 of 25905
Yea, I noticed that the brightness went down slightly when I hit 120hz.

But yea, I'll test it this weekend and see how it goes. I know many people can't just set the refresh rate 120hz and have it work, but is there a chance that it's all I need to do if I don't see any artifacts or issues? Have people done that before?

Also, I didn't see much difference going from 96 to 120 so I may keep it at 96.

I also need to do the front porch method because just setting CRU to 120hz didnt work for me, I had about 12 horizontal lines on my W8 start screen originally.

Hi from Athens,Greece, EU(still).
I got a pixel perfect Qnix from AccessoriesWhole. Paid 285+15 (extra for EMS shipping) = 300Euros (400$ or 253GBP).
I believe it is pixel perfect (I couldn't see anything) and the bleeding - I believe that- is very minimal. I ordered it Friday night, Sunday afternoon was in Athens airport and I collected it yesterday (because of Greece's postal service difficulty to communicate!).
I am very pleased so far, the matte coating is making it less crisp than glossy monitors I am familiar with, but it was the right decision because the sun is unbelievable bright in Greece, and I'm always working (editing) with open windows (avid smoker!). I communicated with a few ebay sellers, accessorieswhole seemed like the perfect fit. Wasn't very happy about the extra 15euros, but he would send the monitor anyway, I just was polite and fair and send him the extra money (which i'm regreting doing so right now!), as I believe he indeed sent me a quite good monitor(the carton seemed open, he must had checked).
I was also very lucky with custom fees, but that was the reason I wanted EMS from the beginning. While friends had very bad expreriences with FedEX, UPS, and the such (e.g they asked 150$ for a 50$ watch, 100$ for a 70$ dress, 120@ for a 150$ chinese smartphone e.t.c), it seems that EMS has a milder policy.

Turns out, there's a clear piece of glass over the LCD (I ordered glossy, so I was a little baffled; I didn't think anything was overlaid on the LCD)
and the cheap adhesive holding the glass up had failed, causing the glass to slip.

Took the bezel off, and removed the glass piece. Everything is A-OK now. Weird.


I had the exact same thing happen to me. Freaked me out. Luckily I was already returning it for another defect. They sent the wrong one unfortunately. I'm hoping they send the correct one this time. How well does it sit in the casing without the glass? Is the screen underneath cleanable?

My new video card arrived today (GTX760 SC 4GB) and MAN does it really crank out the FPS in all my games. I might actually try 120HZ at some point, but I am really liking 96HZ atm.

Good luck with your new purchase and let us know how it turns out for ya.

It would seem that I am one of the (very) lucky ones. I went with the Qnix and not only do I have zero stuck pixels, and no blb, I just tested my OC and I can OC to 120hz without issue! smile.gif

Perhaps it was my rapport with the seller that helped me through, perhaps it was the prayer, or perhaps it was just the luck of the draw; whatever it is!

I heard of a few people having issues with the high oc frying their ports, is this really something I should be worrying about?

I'm gonna have a few shots of vodka to celebrate! smile.gif

Frying which ports? I had never heard of that before. Perhaps I should reconsider OC'ing lol.

Cute...but more like basic luck. There is no way these sellers open the boxes and hook these things up. Even just some of the time.

And I thought only Russians shot straight vodka...man hope that bottle has been in the freezer at least. puke.gifsmile.gif

I doubt all of the sellers that say they test monitors are lying. Most of the perfect pixel purchases that have been reported lately have had no dead pixels, so I think there is probably some testing going on.

There are videos on youtube of some random people testing Qnix monitors too. It was posted somewhere in the thread.

Everything is the same.
LCD is cleanable just like any other LCD

Yeah, I have absolutely no idea; It was just a comment on 120hz.net and I might have misunderstood the fellow.
Thought it would be best to ask here! smile.gif

Aren't there a few posts on this thread suggesting it's happened?

You've got that wrong; Russians and Albertans! And no, it was warm at the time but it's in the freezer now lol. I'll take it either way. tongue.gif


At any rate, it seems I was wrong about 120hz being solid. I hadn't yet put it through the paces and after loading up FFXIV I started getting the artifacts. 96hz is 100% so I'll go slowly up from there and see where it ends up. smile.gif

Suggesting that what has happened exactly?
