I have read in other forums that the delivered DVI cable is not the best, do you maybe have another one you can try? As most problems are solved with a higher quality cable.

Edit: By the way. are you running an AMD (ati) Card? overclocked with afterburner?

Yes I am running a 7950 overclocked with afterburner. Its totally stable though, and the monitor has never gone crazy when playing a game.

ULPS is the culprit, My screen used to do that when I watched something, You tube, local files (Movie), twitch. Surfing a static page was fine, but if it had flash videos or something similar, boom. I have a 2 monitor setup though, I was able to guestimate the window position and pull it to my other monitor, as soon as I closed said application all was fine again. (As if I restarted my PC)

On a side note: Fedex shows my monitor at the depot one hour away. So close I can taste it!, but its on hold as the scheduled delivery is Wednesday! sadsmiley.gif
Red cap has had the most bad buying experiences on this forum. Which is probably part of the reason why he's the cheapest.

Damn :-( I hope everything works out for me.

Every few days the screen has a fit and goes like the picture below. I thought it was the overclock so I lowered it to 85 hz (from 96). But it still did it. Just now it went again running at the stock 60 hz as I scrolled with the mouse wheel. When the computer restarts its fine. Does anyone have any advice? The supplied cable is fully screwed in to both to the monitor and graphics card btw.

Is your GPU's memory overclocked? I had the same issue with my screen doing that, and I found that my GPU's memory was not clocking down to idle speeds and causing it to fail after a period of time. Lowering it to stock speeds fixed it.

Humm ok good advice, i'll try that first, then disabling ULPS. Can afterburner do that ? If so how?

You can try. The vast majority of "perfect pixel" policies do not cover a single dead pixel, or two, three, or even four dead pixels. Most if not all will cover a single bright pixel defect. All will tend to be a pain to return even with a legitimate claim. None guarantee that a bright pixel will not develop during your ownership.

Statistically insignificant, but it doesn't seem like the distribution of panels with bright pixel defects vs panels without bright pixel defects ("perfect pixel") is any different when one goes for perfect pixel or non-perfect pixel. Thus, given the anecdotal evidence so far, you have as much chance of getting a "perfect pixel" panel whether or not you pay for it. Hence, in my opinion, they're just labeling some monitors as "perfect pixel" and selling them for more. Not necessarily true, of course, but that is my opinion given what we know.

Do you guys think $290 for a used x-star with no dead pixels and shipped from the US is a good deal?

Thanks for clearing that up for me.....think i will get a normal one now and buy a decent DVID cable instead.

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

Haha, i asked accessorieswhole the same question without them knowing my preference before buying and this is a direct copy and paste of the reply...


Hi

Thanks for your message.
It is glossy monitor.
Qnix added the tempered glass on Qnix glossy monitor.


If you have any other queries, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you.

- accessorieswhole


Nice to know it's a different answer depending on the day you ask lol. Either way i'm super happy with my monitor and if i was guessing i would say mine is a glossy. I'm glad i got the tempered glass version , but that was part of the selling point for me, i didn't like the matte on the asus pb278q.
I'm back baby!!!

I stick to using Sapphire Trixx (get the modded one for memory voltage). You can disable ULPS through the settings and then you can keep your overclocked settings without any problems with the monitor. It will even downclock your core clocks to 500mhz when idle or watching videos.
