[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 731

post #7301 of 25901
Where the "nominal distance" doesn't stay constant is for video. Because we're not "reading" the video the range of distance from which we can sit or lean into the screen varies quite a bit more than text. This is why 4K/8K is being introduced. Because people sitting 4 feet all the way to 15 feet away from a 85" - 100" TV wouldn't be able to distinguish between pixels.

Agreed - i am currently 8ft away from my 1080p 60" and it looks terrible outside of movies/videos - no way i can use it as a monitor. I cant really even game on it since ive been spoiled with 120hz 1440p.

Maybe in a few years after most upgrade to the 120 Hz or 240 Hz televisions, will everyone start caring about their PC monitor refresh rate. Even most gamers don't really care about 120Hz because they don't know what they are missing. I certainly didn't know anything until I actually saw it.
I think you're right about caring for low fps, but I think most gamers would agree that >45fps is perfectly acceptable and 60fps is optimum. My only source of info to go off of is the sheer amount of reviews I see for GTX 660(midrange) vs 670 and 680 reviews. If most gamers were that concerned, most would purchase the high end cards, which is not the case. Hard to measure things accurately this way, I know, but I think most game card manufacturers would admit their Nvidia "60's" series cards sell the best over the others.

I do not think gamers are a huge portion of pc users. Considering the amount of business users, I think gamers are roughly 10%.

Although i agree that a lot of people do not know or care about over 60hz refresh, i do have a big issue with made up statistics. Lets stop tossing made up percentages around as it is technically mis-information. if you don't care about 120hz then don't overclock the monitor is still fantastic. Many do not know about refresh rates, FPS, response times, input lag etc but this is not a constant on the need or desire for the technology. I do think anything over 30FPS without excessive tearing is playable but that is not the point really, this is not just for gamers. As someone who works a good deal from home remotely i can say having a 120hz screen makes the whole desktop experience better and majorly cut down on my headaches after staring at the screen for 12 ours straight. For desktop use and frame duplication does not require a beastly Gfx card to do. Otherwise i think many gamers are "concerned" with the level of refresh and would love to have the extra frames but everyone has a budget and a knowledge base to properly use it. Honestly before getting teh Qnix and seeing PLS 1440p@120hz i would think money would be better spent of Gfx card but now after using this monitor it is pretty apparent that no matter how powerful your machine is it can only display as good as your screen. So that ind set has switched, from personal experience i can also say that many of my friends initially thought the same thing until after seeing PLS in action.

Bottom line there is no real way to pull these stats in an honest manner and so far there has been percentages through out. Percentages give the general thought of being fact or "real" but these so far have been guessing and assumptions(even though i will even admit that there is valid thought behind it but that still does not make it fact).

Agreed, I also can't hardly go to the movies anymore because at that size all i can do is stare at the pixels. I think i am going to have to get that seike 4K TV to be able to stand the PPI.

I said I think, not that 10% is fact. Unless you were talking about someone else. My whole comment was an opinion.

Just placed a order from ipsledmonitors.com for an Xstar 27inch and hopefully this 1 will have minimal BLB. After somehow cracking my 1st monitor after doing the tape mod on my Qnix which I think was from a pressure point from the warped metal frame I didn't want to take another chance of having to do that again. They cost more than some of the ebay sellers but their warranty seems much better. I'll post back on how it is when I receive it.

Was it a glossy or matte that cracked?
post #7307 of 25901
Matte, it was after I applied the tape and was popping it back into the metal frame. Cracked right at a pressure point where I was getting bad back light bleed.

Hey guys,

Just wanted to give you a bit of feedback on a new seller on the block - zoneforbuyer.

I just purchased a Qnix from him - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/251245265208?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649

$25 cash back which made him the cheapest on ebay.com.au That is a good $50 cheaper than the next option for Australian buyers. The monitor was sent out next day and has arrived extremely well packaged with the entire outer box protective wrapped. No import fees etc.

I have purchased from Accessorieswhole before who were also very good but this one came quicker, was better packaged and was a fraction of the price.

Big thumb.gif to these guys!

Damn. If the pressure on it were that bad you'd think they would have QC'd it.
post #7310 of 25901
When I bent the metal frame into shape i made sure it was flush against the floor in every possible way, lying down, on its side, upside down, right side up...then after i put it all together i realized i had a metal T-square i couldve used tongue.gif Imo its pretty tough to bend it in such a way that itll crack when putting it back on.

That does suck tho.
