[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 899

post #8981 of 25887
So I get severe artifacts ONLY when looking at the log-in screen and in these types of colors, such as when I look at the pictures in a viewer. Everywhere else the monitor works fine (games, movies, etc.), is there any way to fix this?

Just out of curiosity, did you look at any of those online international parcel firms when you got the £108 quote? My OH is from Japan and was able to send all of the Christmas presents for family back home last year by 2 day UPS for less than half of what Royal Mail wanted for a much slower service.

Alternatively, see if they let you keep it for ~£50. It may be the case that the controller board can be swapped out to a "better" AH-IPS panel, in which case you could get one with a nice stand and AH-IPS, swap out the controller to get 120Hz on that, and put the 60Hz controller in the bad Qnix.

 

It may work, but I don't know much about controller compatibility.

I insisted they pay for the return shipping. I think they only did pay for the return shipping because I filed for a chargeback with my credit card and they realized they might end up with no money or monitor if they didn't do it. This was accessories whole and they had stated 0 dead pixels in the ad
well they both have pro's and cons

pros of the 27qw are no backlight problems
possibly slightly better picture but that is in the eye of the beholder.

cons of the 27qw are I really did not like that silver piece of plastic on the bottom. It does come off very easy as I was gonna paint it before I realized I had bad pixels

does not overclock at all.
pros of the qnix
overclocks from 96-120hz with alot of them doing 120hz
the two I have had only did 110hz each but that is fine with me.

When you overclock you have a gamma shift but I was able to completely fix that using 1.45 gamma in the amd control panel and it passes all the color/gamma tests and looks great.

cons of the qnix are backlight bleed

cons of both:
utterly garbage stand (they have the exact same stand) I replaced it with a mono price desk mount stand

I have what I believe to be backlight bleed on my monitor, or it might just be the normal PLS glow I hear people talking about. If you play a ton of games like Battlefield3/4 You will never even see backlight bleed except on loading screens. If you play more dark action adventure games like metro 2033 or tombraider or some such that glow/bleed can he highly annoying. I put black electrical tape around the frame of my monitor as per the OP post on this thread and it didn't seem to do much.

I want to take pictures of it to get peoples opinion on if it is backlight bleed or if it is just the glow but I can never get a good picture of it that looks anything like what it actually looks like to my eye.

Over all I am very happy with my qnix for the 310$ I spent on it. It came pixel perfect but developed one bright pixel but you CANNOT see it from normal viewing distance even on a black screen unless you look very hard for it.

so the qnix does have the possibility of annoying BLB that some people have had success in fixing, but some have not had luck like me. But again I'm not entirely sure if mine is what is considered backlight bleed or if it is "normal" pls glow.

Really helpful post, thanks. I think I'm going to opt for the Qnix as I have to wear glasses all the time and the matte screen is probably better for my eyes than the Crossover glossy one anyway. Still can't completely decide though.... smile.gif

The matte screen is very nice on the qnix, blocks a good bit of glare and doesn't change the picture hardly at all.

I don't even remember if the 27qw was glossy or not honestly, but now that you mention it I think it was and glare kind of sucked with it. So that could be added as another con I spose.

Unless I read it wrong, I thought you had the dead pixel problem?

I think it comes in both but the matte version of it tends to be a bit more expensive. The reviews I've read say that the screen sparkles but also can reflect quite a large amount.

I've made an offer for a QX2710 on ebay anyway so it's just a case of waiting for the seller to respond now.

Honestly the worst part about that monitor imo was that stupid silver bezel. I mean what were they thinking? Before I even bought that monitor I had a feeling it was a bad idea and that would drive me nuts, well it did. I was all ready to paint it too biggrin.gif

Maybe im just ocd but I couldn't stop looking at it .

Haha I just noticed that the monitor stand in that pic isn't even level. that thing is so bad it moves when you type.
