[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 779

post #7781 of 25893
Hey guys, I figured I would share this with you. So I have been back and forth trying to decide if I want to roll the dice and try for another monitor and I just cannot decide. The monitor so far has no dead pixels as everytime I think I find one it turns out to be dust. The blb isn't bad enough to bother me and I am sure if I did the tape mode it would be better. Anyways here is something interesting I learned from the rep at ipsledmonitors.com

Sorry for the delay. I asked our QNIX rep about overclocking. We cannot guarantee overclocking on every monitor as it vastly depends on configuration. The main board, DPL-2560LS.REV.01, was designed by Display Land Co. Ltd. for 60Hz operation. It just so happens that the board will process the extra data for higher refresh rates, although not flawlessly in most cases. Timing, temperature, and even impedance can effect the performance.

A pixel/ frame error at higher refresh rates is not indicative of a panel issue. The panel and TCON board (Samsung parts) are not involved in producing those “mistakes”. It’s likely the main board is not keeping up at higher refresh rates, it’s actually atypical when it does (although that is preferred by enthusiasts).

I am thinking this might be my answer. I asked to see if they can put me in contact with the manufacturer to see if its possible to purchase the board itself. We will see.. I have 4 days left to decide what I want to do. Assuming I could actually purchase the board for not too much, that might be the best compromise. I dunno....

Hi guys i brought My XStar from Dream-Seller last monday arrived this week on wednesday to New Zealand. No BLB can only overclock to 96hz gets pink lines after that. But i have a problem the box was damaged on the way over didn't have any bubble wrap around it!! and i have a White large amount of pixels damaged that i can see with any black back ground or dark color.. Seems fine when iam on facebook or a white background here are the pictures

Ive emailed Dream-Seller and they have sent me details to send it back but not sure what will happen with a refund since i payed for a pixel perfect monitor.. I am thinking i will buy anther off http://www.overclockmonitor.com/ and ask for my refund and if they refuse when they receive it i will do a chargeback to get my money back depending on how good they are..

Can anyone tell me what kinda dead pixels i have in those pics??? really a pain when watching a movie or playing a game..

thanks guys

looks like backlight bleed kinda... hmm maybe not, need to see it on diff colors... try red and greed bright backgrounds and post new pics.

Thanks for your reply PhutileEfforts, I just tired this pixel test at http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php Cant see it on red or green or white or any color other than black or grey i think... The hole in the box aligns with where the damage is on the screen hmmmm.. Would backlight bleed be in the one little spot ? when watching a movie i can see it at times and gaming when the background is black, if i turn up the brightness it gets worse i think..

So if it isn't a damaged dead pixel and its a backlight or damage from shipping over wouldn't that still count as a return?? They are paying to send it back with fedex even if say to bad it isn't a bunch of dead pixels and anther problem i could just chargeback to my credit card and fight it i guess?
post #7786 of 25893
if its aligned with where the box was damaged, then yeah u need a replacement... contact seller... they will prob give u the runaround tho or make u pay the $100+ to ship it back for a replacement... :/
post #7787 of 25893
Yeah he sent me his address back and Fedex Account number so iam guessing hes paying for it since this wasn't my fault.. Hopefully will get a refund or replacement.. lucky we have ebay & paypal protection in a way..

nobody got ant ideas on what is up with this also when i turned monitor on to day it flashed red green blue then everything started up fine but overclocks still no longer work

Nobody have any insight into this i still cant figure it out and have gotten no assistance with this in the days since its been happening im really not sure whats going on with it

Have you playing around with CRU or video card drivers?

The board will probably run you around $150 at least, if they even can sell to you. You can also try and contact Scribby from Overlordcomputer.com, he sells overclockable boards for around that price - but they are for IPS panels..not sure if theyre compatible.

I personally would just roll the dice again, this is obviously bothering you - the chances of you getting an 96hz+ overclockable panel are very good - the chances of you getting bad enough BLB where you have to open it up and work with the frame...also decent, but you can fix it. The chances of getting dead/bright/stuck pixels are low, and the ones you do get will probably not be noticable. Theres a small chance that youll get a cluster in the middle (very small imo) but that warrants a protected return.
