[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 795

post #7941 of 25935
Got my 3rd QNIX in today. Unlike the last two which were tempered glass(aka matte with a glass pane covering it), this one was glossy. I got this one from Accessorieswhile since green-sum was out of stock. I have to say, I really like the package that was sent. It was boxed within a box, which is nice. I have no BLB whatsoever - not even a tiny bit! I do have 1 dead pixel but like the others I've seen, I hardly notice it(it's near the middle too). OC to 120Hz with no problems at all. With the dead pixel, this is the best one I've gotten so far, hands down.

One thing to note is how my monitor was packaged. I almost believe that this seller actually does check their models. My box had no tape on it and looked like it had been opened before. There was also extra stuff done on the inside. For example, the stand was securely taped to the foam, the cardboard was taped to the monitor, there was an extra piece of plastic taped to the screen and the bag that contained the monitor had signs of use. None of the other two I received were like this. In fact, they were both identically packaged. Of course there's no way to prove this, but I found it interesting.

Now onto glossy vs matte, I can confirm that there isn't a whole lot of difference in picture quality but you can tell. It's really hard to show you but I did try and take pictures of the same pictures to illustrate. Note that these are on different computers so the calibration is slightly different(haven't calibrated my new one yet because I don't want to). The pictures are so close to being the same unless you really zoom in. I can say that the glossy model's text is ever so slightly sharper but that's about it. It's really the best matte coating I've ever seen in a monitor. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me as I don't check the thread as much as I used to.

So I ended up returning my monitor back to ipsledmonitors.com, was going to sell it to a member here, but it unfortunately didn't work out. I bought my next one through overclockmonitors.com, I had emailed them a bit and liked their communication with me, also talked to another guy from this thread who had a good experience. I got their pixel perfect model as they told me that they check every monitor to see which they will list it as (pixel perfect or standard), so I figured it was worth the extra price. Hope it all works out in my favor.

Does anyone know how many brightness clicks this monitor goes up to?
post #7945 of 25935
Mine has 30 clicks before it stops registering the button presses.

Anyone else having a gay pixel that changes color? Mine changes color depending on the background (I'll post results and pixel colors on different background colors once I get back home). I tried many fixes out there but to no avail.. Any help would be appreciated redface.gif (I hope it's not a dead sub-pixel! madsmiley.png)

I have one like that.

It only shows up sometimes though and only on very specific colors...so odd.

Yes same with mine. Hope there is a fix for it, but If it was a dead sub-pixel then I'll just settle for a refund (Difference between the normal and the Perfect Pixel price).

Here is my 120Hz OC settings i found stable so far. Setup yesterday only after endless browsing.



Not much info is said about overclocking panel to 120Hz besides bringing the pixel clock down. Did i do it right?

I had mine first set to the common 96Hz but waited it out for a thicker cable before jumping to 120Hz.


With regards to the color profile, I've tested many and when i had my display on 96Hz i found shaolin95's color profile best!

Evens now with 120Hz set, i yet again found his 120Hz color profile best thumb.gif

My testing was looking at various still images, and pausing HD video's at different scenes ( check background, colors, darkness, does it appear better? Worst? Ask yourself that when looking for a Great color profile )

all this while browsing through different color profiles on the fly with the "Display Profile" app.

Hope this helps others like me as well

Alright, so i took everyones advice and vesa mounted my qnix, wasn't feeling to safe with the original stand.. now i'm feeling even less safe!!! had a few issues, the screws for the vesa panel thing didn't go all the way in so i had to get some washers , but that is the least of my problems ( i think.. i hope...) The vesa mount and arm seem to be hanging. The supposed weight this is supposed to support is 15 kg and this should be way under, but i am currently living in fear of it just falling over. Here's a few pics, don't mind the mess currently setting it all up so yeah, am i worrying stupidly or is this not how it's meant to be!!!! PLEASE HELP!!!! Thanks!!













I'm back baby!!!
