[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 816

post #8151 of 25893
Ok so i think i should rewrite my opinion about the Qnix OC (perfect pixel, matte) i received from http://www.overclockmonitor.com i finally arrived home after work to try her out properly.
I now take back my statement on the 1 dead pixel turns out no dead pixels so it is a Perfect Pixel just like advertised very happy.
It just has a (very very) small DARK SPOT which i have to go looking to find, The seller did tell me that (dark spots) aren't included in the PP promises which is fine he was straight up & to be honest this is to be expected very happy.

The monitor overclocks to 120hz easily just as the OC version says on his site, it might suffer from some image retention but i am running it at 486Mhz in CRU Pixel clock, it may happen less once i tweak the setting to under 450Mhz, ill probably be running it at 60hz desktop & 96 for gaming anyway screen gets darker as you go up as everyone else has experienced.

The only things i can say weren't perfect are the stand which doesn't even fit the monitor seems it has to much plastic at the bass of the stand ill probably get some sand paper out tomorrow make a temp fix before i buy a stand for my desk.
Also the BLB on the lower right is not the best kinda yellowish i can see it easy when playing movies or dark games, looks like normal to maybe bit worse than normal BLB but i realize this is due to the Monitors Bezel/frame not the panel its self most of the time. Pushing the bezel makes it better but moves it around to other spots.

So overall i am very happy with this monitor the stand may not work right & it has some BLB but that's it all fixable i think.
overclocks to 120hz easily & No Dead Pixels at all

They answered every email i sent to them over the sale explained everything i needed to know very good customer service keeping you in the loop.

Seems i get image retention with anything over 60hz that sites on the screen for to long. Games & movies should be ok i am guessing but anything desktop related like web browser url bar & writing an email etc seem to hold on the screen for like 20mins.. anyone else have this problem?

Anyone know how these compare to the new "Yamakasi Catleap Precision 2703 27" 2560x1440 IPS LED LCD Monitor"? Obviously it is IPS instead of PLS. I see it is on sale on Ebay for $319 right now.

How about MAC OSX and Linux on a self-built machine, I can easily "hackintosh" this computer and tri-boot is awesome, I like all the different operating systems for different things so would this work? Obviously I dont care about overclocking it on OSX/Linux

I just received mine-- it's the multi input Qnix QX2710 LED, matte. The screen looks great and has no dead pixels but the blacklight bleed is pretty bad. Going to try the tape fix.

Mine has an OSD with the ability to lower both the brightness and contrast, but neither of those settings appear to do anything to the blacklight itself. Is that normal? Is there not a way to just lower the intensity of the LED backlight?

It probably will not be overclockable, so you would lose that feature.

As far as I know, the LG IPS panels are little bit sharper than these Samgsung PLS panels, but the PLS panels have richer colors.

If running above 60Hz is not important to you, and you'd prefer sharper text over richer colors, it might be a good choice. But personally I think the real draw to these is the fact that they're pretty much the only monitor on the market that can run at 2560x1440 at 120Hz

Okay so I can do 110hz easily without changing anything @ 443 pixel clock.

120hz gives me green lines so I want to try to lower the pixel clock.

Whenever I change anything like front porch/back porch it doesn't seem to change the pixel clock very much @ 120hz

If I am in manual model in CRU and I change the pixel clock to say 450 it puts me @ 112hz automatically.

I'm not understanding how I am supposed to fine tune this.


if I use automatic - lcd reduced. It sets the pixel clock @ 469 for 120hz

Try changing the pixel clock to 459.86mhz.. Thats the lowest I know of that anyone has gotten to so far.

Any one got solution to my problem? Please help.

Btw when I got to CCC when its 120hz the scale image to full screen doesn't work and overscan is grey out too...

Yes you can. You can set the image scaling options in CCC - to "ungrey" the option, make sure your windows resolution is set to the resolution you want to modify (1920x1080)
