Honestly i have never been impressed with pre-calibration. All the digital artists at my work have our monitors professionally calibrated and it is always a big difference. Granted the pre-calibration generally gets the right color hue and sharpness, the gamma, contrast and saturation are generally all still way off from what a spyder(or greater) calibrator will give you. I will agree Dell and Apple do tend to pre-calibrate a bit better but using a calibration device will always give you more exact results.

Before getting my X-star I tried 5 Dell U2713HMs, which were supposedly factory calibrated. They all looked night-and-day different when compared side-by-side. I think Dell's factory calibration is BS.

Probably is. It is just a easier to know the results are not completely off the chart.

I'm seconding this question.

I want to buy one of these, and it would seem like this is by far the safest way to do it. Will it even exist to honor the warranty in three years, though? I remember reading that the website has a 1 year long registration.

The unconditional return policy is the best part, I guess, but at least one person had had trouble with that too-

I ordered mine from them on October 9th. Monitor shipped on the 11th and arrived on the 14th. Maybe I didn't read closely enough, as I thought ipsledmonitors.com stocked these in the US, but my monitor shipped from Korea. I am happy with their service. They sent order confirmation and payment confirmation emails. They did not send the shipping confirmation email they promised in earlier correspondence, but I was able to track my monitor via the "track order" tab on their website without issue.

Best,
HC

So, who's going to be first to DIY an Nvidia G-Sync system onto their Qnix/X-Star?

I wonder how this would effect the 3D capability of a monitor. Something to think about.

Do you guys think the Qnix/ X-star will support the G-Sync module?

It would be nice, but I think it has something to do with display port, as the Asus can only use DP after g sync is added.

But DVI-D/Display Port can be converted back and forth without an active adapter, no? I thought they used the same pins.
