[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 87

post #861 of 25893
Thread Starter 
I am wondering what you guys think about these profiles? Personally, out of every calibration profile posted thus far, the Asus PB278Q V3.icc looked the best on my monitor. Any of them work the best for you as well?

Calibration profiles for name-brand monitors that have the same PLS panel inside of them as the QNIX & X-star might work out for you. Calibrations posted here at TFT Central may be stock factory and/or personal calibrations for said monitors.
Name brand monitors that have the same PLS panel internally Go to tft central and download these:
Asus PB278Q
Samsung S27A850D
Viewsonic VP2770-LED

Did I mess up somewhere?

Hmm if you are not using the CRU you need the Catleap 2B INF so games know what's up. It's on 120Hz.net somewhere...

Highly recommend going to tftcentral website OP posted and reading the tutorial on how to apply an icc. That showed me everything i need to do.

Yeah I would have thought that Use Windows Calibration checkbox is related to the crappy hardware-less calibration procedure provided by Windows and activated with the button to the left there.

My point was that a matte screen will look good in an uncontrolled environment compared to a glossy one. I personally hate glossy screens. Many times even in dark rooms when there is a bright scene in a movie or game I see a glimpse of my reflection on the monitor, which I hate cause then I end up looking for them and not enjoying the move as much.
There was a review on YouTube in which the guy is sitting in a completely dark room and have taken pictures of the glossy screen. The glossy version is just a bit too glossy for my room.

I've been searching on 120hz.net for the last hour or so fo the 2b INF. Only thing I found was "Catleap_Q270_OC_v2", "Catleap_Q270_OC" or "catleap.inf"
I tried those and did the CRU method. Its all showing up on my nvidia settings as 120hz but my monitor settings shows up as 59/60hz...[
/S]

Tried the "Catleap_Q270_OC" and it worked smile.gif

I too am interested in this, but tbh I am not going to over clock these monitors. My last monitor was an Acer and it lasted me 5 years before it died. The problems started just after I forced my gt560 to run 1440 x900 resolution at 60 hz on that screen. The monitor is a 16:10 with its recommended resolution being 1440x900 but for some reason after upgrading to my gtx 560 that resolution was unavailable and I had to use nvidia control panel to force it. I remember getting a warning message, it suggested that prolonged use of a custom resolution might damage my monitor, the poor thing now sits on my desk covered in dust. Will be getting the repair kit in a few weeks, will fix it then.

Received my monitor from Hulustar today.
One stuck pixel in top center left, scarcely noticeable unless on a static dark background.
Backlight bleeding is fairly bad, I will take some pictures when I find my wife's camera.
If I decide to open it up and do the tape fix will I void my warranty? Or is it a traceless modification since it looks like you need to remove the back to vesa mount anyway?

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


yep this definetly best for me at 121hz:)
