The wife has informed me DHL just dropped off my QNIX!

Only about 7 hours of work to go before I get to play with it.. This is going to be a looooong day.

It's a bit startling how fast these get here. I ordered mine just 3 days ago (technically less) and it's already out for delivery in my area right now. That means it's very likely to be here today.

To be honest, I'm kind of scared. Considering I've went through over 8 mainstream brand monitors that all had defects (including no less than 3 Viewsonic VP2770's), I'm kind of wondering just how bad my Qnix is going to be. With my monitor luck it won't even work! Cross your fingers and all that, I suppose.

I'm expecting it to be pretty bad, but I guess at this price I can't complain much. Dirt cheap compared to the other monitors I've been chewing through (430$+ cheaper than the Viewsonic).

So I think everyone missed my post a few pages back...

Anything to be done about ghosting images? If I leave my second monitor as is (information displayed) it will eventually leave a burn in, which isn't really burn in but ya know.

Is that really anything to worry about, so far it seems to go away after my screensaver goes on, but its still scary.

Which then makes this panel perfect.

Its worth the cost savings to get this montior over name brand, as the blb can easily be fixed.

Yea, I've seen the many videos about it, but looks confusing, because I don't even have it yet*. Do we to need specifically electric tape or can it be like masking tape or something ?

It doesn't, but I'm going to be done with work in about 5 hours. And then I'm going to also play tennis with a coworker. Chances are I'm not even gonna get home to this thing in less than 6-7 hours. All I can do is fret and be pessimistic lol.

Edit: just been confirmed as delivered on UPS, too.

Naw, I'm talking about when an application is running 60Hz+, like a Windowed-mode game. For movies/shows, I have been able to drag it back and forth since it's only running 24~30FPS.

I also get slight image retention when using 120Hz. I don't see it when playing games or watching media, so it's not bothering me. I only really see it if there's a gray-ish solid background like when you open up a small image in Firefox and the rest of the background is showing the retained image(s).

It goes away after my monitor has been in standby/sleep, so I don't worry about it.

Do we really need a play-by-play from everyone who is being shipped a monitor? i should create an '[Official] I just ordered a monitor, here is the most recent tracking status' thread. Don't forget to include what you ate for breakfast each day rolleyes.gif

I thought most people were bending the frame to correct blb as that was the true cause?

Even when bending the frame, it could still produce some BLB. The tape method allows people to incrementally fix the BLB in cases where the frame bend fix was not enough.

got the new wire still cant do 120 hz :-(

tried with 48 32 12 and 2 3 1 -- pixel clock was 460

intermittent horizontal greeen lines across the screen. I think my pcb just doesn't like over 110hz.


The wire was sitting out in the cold, and got pretty cold so I will try later I guess doubt it will make a difference.
