This review shows two multi-input qx2710's overclocking to 120Hz. See page 2 for the pictures of the multi-input Qnix. They mention that overclocking only worked when using the DL-DVI port on the monitor, unsure about if it overclocks on DisplayPort.

I saw a few other people successfully overclocking multi-input versions when I was looking into this last week, but I didn't get to take down those posts.

Yeah, I thought about doing that, but those things are quite costly (and who knows if they will work). Is there a recommended one in this thread somewhere?

Part of the reason for getting another monitor was (sadly) by letting my Windows machine to fall back to a 1440p display instead of a 1080p one, my window positions wouldn't get screwed up. But if the multi-input version won't OC, it's completely out of the question.

Thank you, that is a huge decider for me.

Interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if OC was DVI-only.

Now I'm still a bit undecided on what to do. Maybe I should look into active mDP->DVI-DL adapters and try to find one that "will" work.

That review doesn't validate their overclock. It only states that they set the resolution + refresh rate, but the same has been the case with all previous multi-input "overclocks". Further testing of the panel itself has shown that despite the GPU and software side of things was working as intended (sending 120hz to the monitor) the monitor itself was not in fact displaying 120fps, but rather 60 fps and skipping every other frame.

So pardon my doubt on their results. I until someone captures a valid test (a la http://www.testufo.com/#test=frameskipping), then I will treat any claims of overclocking with a healthy dose of skepticism. Especially since that particular mode of failure (frameskipping of multi-inputs at >60hz signals) is well known, well-documented and very common.

I did notice that the CrossOver Black Tune 2755 thread has some claims of overclocking as well - I intend to investigate that further as one of the members actually has a multi-input "overclocked" monitor - as of now, I will treat that as an unconfirmed report.

To people who have experience in returning these monitors to South Korea for refund or exchange. What is the procedure? If the seller agrees to pay for all the shipping, would the seller arrange a pick-up for me or do I ship it first and report the shipping fees? Also do I need to wrap the monitor back in the bubble wrap that comes with it? Thanks a lot!

I had to return an IPS to a korean seller. He eventually agreed to pay for return shipping and gave me his fedex acct number and I arranged return shipping.

Which seller & whats the reason your sending it back?
I had to return my first xstar to dream-seller he paid for shipping back and refunded me within 1 week i just dropped it off at fedex for him, Didn't even bubble wrap it since he didn't on the way over & already had a hole in the box, you could bubble wrap it though up to you.

Thanks.
I ordered from excellentcastle and the problem is the 2 pictures I posted few pages back, I dont know whether those are dusts or dead pixels. However, the customer service from excelletcastle is the best out of all sellers imo, quickest response(still only one a day tho), saw my pictures, agree to do an exchange or refund a discount.. I am still waiting for his reply regarding the exchange procedure. He also marked the item for only $80 so I did not have to pay a lot of duties (I live in Canada).

I think I'm going to try out ipsledmonitors.com. 30 bucks more, yeah, but looking at the member experiences on the first page of this topic it seems to be mostly positive.
post #8409 of 25893
derek0309, the picture you posted looks like dead pixels, At least these Korean sellers are keeping to there word as advertised smile.gif he will contact you with the procedure.

Ordered a "pixel perfect" QNIX from red-cap on Saturday. Already shipped and could be here as early as Wednesday. Crossing my fingers.
