[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 864

post #8631 of 25905
Would a Geforce gtx 560 ti 1.25 gig graphics card be enough for this type of monitor? I know it can handle up to 2560x1600 but would a monitor this large just be pushing things too far?

Use would be for casual game playing (I play Rome 2 occasionally) and then also photoshop work.

Also, would taping the monitor for backlight bleed void the seller's warranty or a squaretrade warranty?

Thanks

Which mount did you get?

The X-Star has VESA mounts in the back, nothing special required (except I had to do the minor surgery to get the clear plastic leg off).

I got the Ergotron dual monitor arms. Amazon's got it on sale right now for $199. It's designed for a max of 24" monitors but it holds the weight of the Korean ones just fine (while losing a bit of maneuverability/range of motion as you'd expect).

And forget ever changing those profiles... Thats the issue right there.

If anyone finds any info on GTX 5xx series power savings feature on 2560x1440@120hz, please let me know mad.gif

I'm having an issue with Intel HD 3000 graphics on my Lenovo Y570 laptop and the X-Star monitor.

First of all, I tried setting the custom resolution to 2560 x 1440 @ 30 Hz in the Intel Control Panel but it says that it is "invalid".
Therefore, I tried 20 Hz and it gave me the same problem.
Then, I tried 40 Hz and now it tells me that it exceeds the "maximum" bandwidth (which I know isn't true cause I can run 48 Hz on another laptop with the same cable / HDMI port)
Lastly, I even tried 1920 x 1080 @ 40, 60 Hz and it says that the maximum was exceeded again (which should be impossible)

Can anyone shed some light on this issue? Or can recommend steps for me to try?

Macbook, Laptops and On-Board graphics cards are also NOT compatible.

Intel HD graphics 3000 is the internal graphical unit ("on-board graphics") of the Sandybridge generation CPU.

Actually, I have another laptop, a Y580 that works with these monitors. I can get it running at 60Hz in HDMI with just a small artifact (sometimes it has some green lines on the edge of the screen when gaming). I also read in some other places that You can get at least 40 Hz at this resolution, even with Intel HD 3000 graphics.

I seen someone on here was wondering whether the Tempered glass was glossy underneath or matte.....one person said glossy and another matte, so i contacted accessoriewhole and they got back to me with this reply......

Sorry for the late response due to the weekend.
Qnix says it is matte screen + tempered glass.

Hello,
Im planning on getting a korean monitor. Which do you think is better? The Qnix or Xstar (overclockability, color accuracy, quality)? And would it be a good idea to buy a "pixel perfect monitor"? And do you people recommend any specific seller? Im planning on buying a glossy version too, is that a mistake?
Grtz

Just got my shipping info and it's through FedEx. Any one with experience being shipped by FedEx? I'm kind of scared after their incidents.

It's probably good I didn't hear about the incidents then. Mine was shipped via FedEx and I had no issues.
