I wouldn't trade with redcap. He's been the source of many, many headaches, especially with CrossOvers and warranty support.

Oh wow.... okay I guess it'll be either one of these:

Same but Tempered Glass edition Green Sum

Or most likely the Matte version from dream seller

Damn so many choices......thinking.gif

I've read that the tempered glass ones are prone to having dust behind the glass, and that sellers do not return for this. I advise against, but there always has to be the first person who breaks the stereotype.

weird... a Qnix QX2730LED. Different model, different base... listing says it is 1920x1080P. AVOID~!


Overall, green-sum, dream-seller, hulustar, and bigclothcraft are all great sellers. Sure, each has their issues from time to time, but that is the chance we all take with buying one of these monitors. The risk is inherent with the benefits. To make it simple for you, stick with those sellers and a QNIX qx2710 evolution ll

Has anyone gotten downsampling to work on these monitors? I'm trying to downsample 4K resolution for games but it gives me an error when I try and set it up.

Got 2 X-Star matte for myself (to replace a shimian) and a friend. One has 1 dead pixel pretty close to the center and only goes up to 115hz, the other one goes to 120hz and it's pixel perfect. Both have awful backlight bleeding on the bottom of the screen but I plan to pop them open and apply the fix linked around here.

Not sure if it's the anti-glare coating or the PLS screen but it looks a lot better than my Shimian.

Here's my Spyder4 Pro profile @ 120hz x-star-120hz.zip 2k .zip file


Some other measurements made with the Spyder @ 120hz

Thanks. And please let us know how opening of the bezel and blb fix attempt goes...if you'd care to take some pics even better. The ones I've seen so far are kind of hard to decipher though they might make more sense once I'm actually looking at the inside of mine.

Thanks gogusrl for the graph and the profiles. I am awaiting a X-star matte myself. I don't know enough to interpret those graphs. Would someone more knowledgeable please comment? Are those graphs representing accurate color reproduction? How does it compare to say Apple/Dell/Eizo graphs, etc? Do OCing the hz affect the color-reproduction or bleeding?

Thanks in advance

Yes, very interested also. By the way, anyone read the review from tech report?

This is pretty spot on for my QNIX at 120 hz thanks!
