Hmm I'm still trying to make up my mind if i should risk it and get a X-STAR or just suck it up and get a Viewsonic Vp2770.... The viewsonic is $700 so that does put a dent in my wallet. What do you guys think? With your experiences with backlight bleeding and other things?

I think you would get a different answer depending on who you ask man, but from my experience I would say go for the qnix or x star if that's what your looking at. My qnix beats the Asus pb278q I owned hands down with a leg in the air.

Having said that, I think it's a raffle. But it's a raffle even buying from the store if you go with the viewsonic, no 2 panels are the same and you could get a bad one of those. Difference is you can probz return the viewsonic straight away.

Go for it is my suggestion. But it is a little risky I think.

Do you plan on gaming? The VP2770 has a 12ms response time, which is quite a bit worse than the Qnix or X-Star. I think the average for these is about 8ms, which is already a little slow, but not too bad

According to multiple reviews the viewsonic is the fastest ips/pls 1440P on the market and is on par with korean monitors. Just pointing that out.

Does anyone else feel like their backlight is flickering? I'm not massively sensitive to flicker, but I can see it on some TV's. On my Qnix the lowest possible brightness setting exibits very obvious flickers, its more of a flash than a flicker really, it just bumps in and out of blackness. One up from that its more of a flicker, extremely obvious.

At max brightness (what I always use it on) I sometimes think I can see flicker, but I'm not sure if I can or if my eyes are just messing with me. There have been other times though where it has had a pretty obvious flicker that dissapears when I switch resolutions away and back.

Id say go for this, but thats probably because the monitor I got is perfect biggrin.gif

My monitor arrived yesterday from accesorieswholesale. It has a bit of backlight bleed in the bottom right corner (very exaggerated in pictures) that I will attempt to fix sometime soon, but otherwise there are no dead pixels and everything else seems to be working good. Except... twice in the past day I have gotten a garbled screen, once at 96hz and once at 120hz about 5 hours later. This is after about 12 hours of use. Is this from the monitor or my PC? I am running at 60hz right now to see if it happens again. It's a bit worrying, as there are no other issues with static or flashing lines at any other time.



Also, this is my first post after lurking for years. Hi.

Purchased a Qnix yesterday from newegg seller "Neofeel".. shipped today and will be delivered tomorrow. How the hell did they manage to get this overnighted from Korea for $10?

Anyways, wish me luck on the pixel / backlight bleeding aspect.

Sorry if this is a silly question but I want to know if the Qnix or X-Star will work on a dual-link DVI-I port.... I've looked through the FAQ on the first page and all it mentions is DVI-D Duallink

Now it is my understanding and correct me if I'm wrong is that a DVI-I is both Digital and Analog so a DVI-I Dual link is equal or better in some ways for the both support....

So will these screens work on a dual-link DVI-I Card (The card I have is a Geforce GTX275 which has 2 Dual Link DVI-I ports.) And I believe the max resolution is 2560x1440 which matches the same as the screen in any case... (I know the games will take a hit in FPS, this is'nt a concern)... The reason I ask this question is because these korean sellers do not list my card as compatible and in fact there are many Dual Link DVI-I and Even DVI-D they don't list... So will it work or not tongue.gif thx
