On a different note, I can get to 120hz with no artifacts on the desktop, but significant artifacts in the top left of the screen.

I can get to 115hz with very minimal artifacts in the top left only showing up infrequently at irregular intervals, in other words - I can live with it. Happily.
But can my monitor live with it?
Does running a monitor with minimal artifacts put the monitor more at risk of a shortened lifespan or any other kind of problems than if there were none?

Thanks. smile.gif

Had that problem too (top right of my the monitor for me) until I did LCD Reduced in CRU. Assuming you have you haven't tried that yet that is.

Otherwise, almost postiive that CrossOver IPS's do not overclock past 66hz - they lack the required hardware.

Thanks guys. That settles it, will go for Qnix or X-star, well I saw one seller is selling price X-Star cheaper than the rest is Dream-Seller. I heard a bit of complaints buying from him/her, someone also says stay away from him. Any feedback? I just want to see if I got a balance view.

Got my QNIX!

Cant believe how quick it got here. It was shipped Tuesday 3AM PST and it arrived today Wednesday at 5PM PST. INSANE!

Anyways first impressions are good. Ive only spotted one dead pixel, but its so small once I sat back I lost sight of it. I don't see any BLB yet, but I havnt turned off the lights to test, but with this websites backdrop plus my lighted room, I cant see any BLB.

First post from a long time lurker and this thread has convinced me to finally upgrade my monitor! A big thank you to everyone who contributed their time and thoughts to the reviews of the actual panels, eBay sellers, and performance.

I went to purchase a X-Star from dream-seller today and PayPal marked the transaction and put a security hold on it. After multiple calls and numerous attempts to purchase, the PayPal rep told me that the seller (dream-seller) has a high volume of disputes recently and it automatically marked the transaction for hold. I asked him if this meant I probably shouldn't purchase from the seller and he said "yep" then moved on.

I noticed in the past week that the Qnix prices increased significantly so I was trying to get dream-seller's X-Star for a deal but am now having second thoughts about it. Would anyone care to contribute some input on this or has anyone ordered from dream-seller recently?

How was your experience with IPSLEDMonitors.com? Seems positive!

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

Congrats!

How did you get to 120hz? Did you just set it to 120 in CRU and that's it?
post #6817 of 25887
Well actually there are/can be a few nuances or other details but generally now that is it as you no longer have to patch the drivers to Test Mode. Make sure higher Hz entry on the top in CRU. Might also have to select 120 or whatever in your GPU CP too though maybe not (I didn't have to using CRU and patched ATI drivers; no OC at present for me). All this info like most else in post #1 of this thread btw.

Your first hint it "worked" (barring artifacts of course) is a darker overall image, especially at the higher pixel clocks of 120+.

Well they'd like us to think they do but I just can't see how they actually do. I don't know; I guess I shouldn't speculate across the board. But, really, if any actual powered inspection is going on it's at the factory only is my bet. That's where the Perfect Pixel stickers on the box originate, at any rate. I had thought that perhaps IPSLED guys did some inspections but plenty from there have had the same bleed and what not.

Very good *knocks on wood*. Quick email responses, fast as hell shipping and far the monitor looks perfect. I am almost afraid to test for BLB and dead pixels, but I feel it would be in my best interest. But so far from normal useage and games, I have no noticed no blb and I absolutely cannot see any dead pixels from my sitting distance.

Overclocked it to 120hz and didn't notice any weird lines like some users reported. I am going to leave it at 96hz for now.

Yes and it was actually very likely a blessing in disguise that you weren't able to send dream-seller any money. Avoid.

My new X-Star just shipped out to me tonight. I am REALLY hoping it will be here by Friday. We'll see. If not, no big deal. They are usually very quick, though.

Will post my results when it arrives. Might do another unboxing and pictures again just so everyone can see what happens. This Qnix has been an absolute joy so far (only had it three days, though). I just purchased a new video card that arrived today and I wanted to take advantage of it with a dual monitor setup. Especially since I do a lot of 3D modelling and programming. This new card is a beast even though it's not a Titan. Still, for a GTX 760, it rocks. I have it a bit OC'ed even thought it says it's a Super Clocked version. I'm so glad I purchased the 4GB version.

Anyhow, enough about my video card. I should have some pictures for you all on Friday of the new X-Star DP2710. I really hope the black light bleeding isn't serious. I really don't want to have to go through what I did with my Qnix. You'd think they would at least turn on the panels when they are in the plastic casing just to see if the black light bleeding is an issue. Mine was really bad and pinching at the bottom and top. Bleh.
