@Cookybiscuit & Jerrolds: can you test for PWM flicker using TFTCentral's method? Use a camera with a 1/10 exposure.

I couldn't pick up any PWM flicker on my own Qnix QX2710 using this method, but I can try again. The Qnix might have 2 models, one with PWM and one without.

At the lowest brightness I don't have any strobing that I can notice, but I'm sure that I could notice it if it was there, particularly if it's not at regular intervals.

EDIT: I have a 60FPS handycam that I could test with when I get back home. Surely it could pick up the strobing at least as easily as the camera you used in that video picked it up, as that video is running at 30FPS.

Yasamoka I think you might be right about the possibility of 2 models, I couldnt see any PWM on the XStar I am sending back, the qnix I brought will be here next week I'll check when it arrives, on my other LED monitors I can clearly see PWM with a camera viewing it..

Hey guys, quick question about vesa mounting my qnix..

If i was to vesa mount it, and i didn't want to take it apart to risk worsening the back light bleed (as i have none) could i just leave the neck hanging out and still just connect the vesa mount, or do i need to open it up to make sure there are no wires in the way?? Cheers.

Also that tutorial is just for DIY'ers yeah? I just want to buy one and chuck it on without having to open up the monitor.

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

Sorry to bump this post, I'm eager to order this screen and I don't want to waste my money could someone answer?

Yes, it will work.

You can if you want..but itll be super ugly - opening it wont affect BLB in any way...its the metal frame that causes it. Youre safe to remove the bezel, and replace the stand without affecting your BLB.

DVI-I stands for integrated - supports both DVI-D (digital) and A (analog) - itll work as long as you have a dual link DVI output and a video card that can support 1440p

Cheers man, i'm just really happy with everything except the stand, and i generally don't stick with a monitor for long but this ones a keeper.. so i don't want to damage it myself lol. I think i will just try vesa mounting it without opening it up and leaving the glass neck hanging out and seeing if i can live with it.. if not i will have to take it apart to get it off, i was mainly concerned of doing damage by not opening it and checking for wires where i'm going to be screwing the holes, probably a stupid question but i haven't really looked into vesa mounting until now. Cheers.

Is there any reason this vesa stand won't work with the qnix?? It says it's specified for 17- 23 inch monitors but supports up to 15kg, the qnix is only 7kg tops.

Mine just arrived this morning. Can't wait to get home. Ordered from overclockmonitor.com ordered Sunday night. Pretty fast shipping. Their replies to email are pretty quick.

Just thought I would post a quick report on my experience to add to the mix. I ordered an X-Star DP2710 (Matte) from Dream-Seller last Monday Sept 30. It arrived at my house in Georgia 4 days later on Thursday Oct 3. Mine was shipped in the original box with no outer box or wrapping and it made the trip just fine. The monitor itself is in excellent condition as well! I've been using an Asus VG248QE 120Hz TN panel and I am blown away at how incredible the colors are on this X-Star. (I have a Spyder 4 that I calibrated it with as well.) There is hardly any light bleed and I can't even notice it in games. There is 1 dead pixel that is all the way on the far right side of the screen, completely out of the way. If it were one more pixel over to the right you wouldn't even be able to see it. I've had mine overclocked to 96Hz since the first day I got it and have not noticed any screen retention or distortion. I will more than likely be buying two more of these in the next couple months. thumb.gif
