[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 760

post #7591 of 25935
I've been battling this image retention issue for 5 weeks now. I even left my monitor OFF for 2½ weeks, because my backup system had a 5450 and for some reason it didn't work on the QX2710, soI used a old 19'' Dell. My last chance is just to lower the pixel clock lower than on stock. Atm is at 59Hz and pixel clock at 226 Mhz. Could underclocking help the issue? Also, can the stock cable be the issue? I allways get the Mozilla Firefox's search bar and magnifying glass visible on the top right corner. But this image retention comes and then fades away. Seems like it's very prone to static images. Any of you guys faced the same issue that I have?

As little as it happens, the top right corner is the only spot I have it. It is VERY faint though

Yeah mines faint too. But I can prevent this by leaving the top right corner blank, and when i'm browsing the internet I don't use fullscreen..
I just hope that this isn't permanent :/ I've been flashing black/white static images switching every 10 sec for weeks now, no success though.

Ive read that lowering the overclock (back down to 60hz) returns the IR back to normal. Google LCD Repair v2 - theres a "fix my pixels" option that runs static, run that for an hour (or a few) to see if it gets rid of it.

What was your pixel clock when you overclocked?

When I tried 96Hz, I ONLY changed the refresh rate. (I don't exactly remember the pixel clock)

With many of the recent posts i think it is proper to re-affirm that Perfect Pixel is still a SCAM... and apparently this does apply to accessorieswhole like any other seller. "guaranteeing" a perfect pixel monitor by the use of a inspection and then sending a defective monitor is just got SCAM all over it. I mean really how many times does this need to happen before people stop buying PP. How many of these do we really think "developed" dead pixels in shipment? Or is it a bit more likely that the "inspection" is a load of crap and they get lucky here and there(in which "here and there" IS a perfect term for the reliability of PP from buyers who reported).

I really think this specific argument needs to be put to rest as PP = SCAM otherwise we are going to just keep revisiting it every 10-15 pages in the thread.

EDIT: Directly from the OP

Q: Is it worth it to buy a pixel perfect monitor?
A: No. All evidence as of now suggests that probability of receiving a monitor with no or little dead pixels is random, even if purchasing a 'pixel perfect' monitor. It seems that it is a marketing ploy for them to get more money.

^^^ This is what new members should be going off of. There is no further argument here it is a SCAM.

While i agree with PP is a scam (they dont actually check the panels before shipping out) - doesnt it give the buyer leverage for free return shipping if the panel does have bright/dead/stuck pixels that break the sellers "Pixel Perfect" definition?

If it does - then it can be worth it to some buyers (not that theyll get a PP panel, but they can return and exchange for free)

If they still dont pay for return shipping, then its a scam all the way around.

The leverage is what makes it worthwhile, but there seems to be a fairly high chance of getting a perfect monitor anyway. If you don't get what you pay for, the seller is responsible for all costs.i got it (admittedly on the cheap with some good old-fashioned bargaining) and don't regret it at all. A dead pixel or two not near the center, that I could put up with, but a stuck one would drive me insane. For me the extra 10% was money well spent.

I think the problem is, we all have different experiences so I cannot call a SCAM something without evidence.
The one I bought was perfect , and the email chats I exchanged were very clear before I purchased, plus I only paid $10 extra for it.
So I can only speak for my personal experience with overclockmonitors.com. Since I was not there, nor were you, I cannot tell they did or did not check it.

Regards
