[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 687

post #6861 of 25891
I jinxed it. The seller said they're all out of X-stars.

I wanted to have 2 matching monitors. He offered me a QNIX. Does anyone haven an X-Star and a QNIX? Are they identical to each other(other than the logo).

I don't want to have them by each other and have one brighter than the other or look different, I dunno maybe my OCD is kicking in.

What do you guys think?

As far as we know, they're the same. Same panel, same bezel, etc etc. Overclocking results are less tested with the X-Star.

Personally, it'd bother me to have 2 "identical" monitors with mismatched logos haha.

But as far as the brightness/color and such, you'd see just as much variation from X-Star to X-Star as X-Star to Qnix. Some panels simply have warm/cool tints and might look slightly different than another of the exact same panel

I would say it is from a personal standpoint. I would also like to point out that you have 687+ pages to help you with the headache wink.gif

Just wanted to share my experience real quick. First post here.

I read through many pages of this forum, did tons of research and eventually it lead me to buy an X-Star from Dream-Seller for ~$279. I received the monitor in just three days. I opened it up, set it up and !@#$, there's huge defect:

They look much worse in person.

So far Dream Seller has offered to refund my purchase, provided I pay to ship the monitor back. The gave me the details on what I needed to do, Fedex estimated the shipping to be around $300. Yep, more than I even paid for the monitor. I'm hoping there's something Dream Seller can do to get the shipping price down. Otherwise I'm not sure what I'm going to do, currently considering getting a square trade insurance policy and claiming it down the road. But who knows if that'll work since I did not get the perfect pixel model. What would you guys do in my situation?

The parts of the monitor that work do look great, however the parts that do not look pretty awful. I really badly want a replacement monitor, same type and brand. I think I just got a dud.

Is the the blb or the random colors that's the problem?

I'm going to assume you don't see those lines that are running across the entire screen. Those are apparently rows of dead pixels or pixels that are broken somehow.

This is why I shop at Amazon. The seller I bought my Crossover 27Q from printed a prepaid return label that cost me ZIP. Nada. Nothing. I'm assuming that this isn't always the case. However, if you complain to Amazon enough, they will more than likely eat the cost of shipping after talking to the seller for you. I try to stay away from ebay as much as humanly possible. Others have had great experiences, but I don't take chances with hundreds of dollars. That's just me, though.

It's the two lines of non-functional pixels.

Oh wow that is bad, sorry didn't notice the first time. I would definitely not accept having to pay return shipping as you bought under the condition of having a fully functional product. It is obviously defective and you deserve a refund - without you needing to pay return shipping of course.

I would file a paypal claim (if you paid with paypal) if they refuse to pay return shipping or file a charge back with you bank if you paid by credit card.

Well sorry and that sucks and I know there is a lot to look through obviously (and his/her price is great...for a reason) but if you really read "many pages" especially more recent ones I don't see how/why you went with dream-seller. More like nightmare as you too have now found out.
