I don't know about amd, but with nvidia I just change it in the control panel after the different settings were made, very easy for me.

What eBay seller is the best to buy it from?
I saw on slick deals some for $270 shipped from ebay but do these have higher dead pixel percentage? Or is it all the same from every seller

accessorieswhole only allow 3 dead pixels on a normal panel, and on the "Perfect Pixel" they allow none.....dont think other sellers are as strict tbh. smile.gif

Hey All:

Just ordered an X-Star 2710 from dream-seller; although part of me wanted to hold off to see if any sales were offered, figured prices weren't going to dip much below $279.

I did, however, have a quick question concerning voltage converters and plug adapters: specifically, am I correct in thinking I will not need a voltage converter but will need to pick up a Type B plug adapter (an adapter that accepts Type C plugs and outputs Type B)?

Alternatively, if I had a spare 3-prong power cord -- ones traditionally used with TV and PSUs -- would I be able to use that cord instead of the the cord that ships with the monitor?

Thanks, in advance, for any insight or info.

Regards,

You can just swap it for any ATX-style 3 pin power cord. Mine arrived today and that's all I did when I tested it. Most of the Korean sellers provide a power adaptor for the local socket type or a completely universal one but I just replaced the power cord as the supplied travel adaptor was actually quite nice so we're planning to save it for vacations.

The power packs provided with the monitor are universal current and will automatically switch to 110-240 volts wherever you are. South Korea uses the same 220v Schuko system as Continental Europe.

Depending on your region, possibly Dreamseller or AccessoriesWhole then. Both are really well established but are less keen to reduce the value listed on the shipping invoice so that can cause high import taxes in Canada and Europe. For America it's no problem whatsoever.

BigClothCraft. ExcellentCastle and StoreWithStory also each have a good and solid reputation.

I actually don't know much about the Xstar other than it is a cheap Korean monitor that most likely uses the same panels. I can however vouch that the Qnix is a great monitor, no regrets about buying it. Yea, pretty much, unless you are really really concerned about dead pixels and are going to buy the *pixel perfect* guarantee, then I would say just buy one from whoever seems like a reputable buyer for the right price. Again, I bought from green-sum with no guarantee at 289.99, and my monitor is immaculate. Either way, good luck! thumb.gif

I received the Qnix today from eBay seller storewithstory. Bought the perfect pixel with matte screen, after my best offer was accepted. Shipping was fairly quick via UPS. I was expecting the monitor to have some flaws, but for my surprise there are no dead or stuck pixels and there is no light bleed at all, screen looks even. Also overclocked to 120Hz without any issues.

The thing that I noticed is when I turn the brightness way down, I can see a slight flickering, although it's hard to see. When I turn the brightness up it goes away. I guess it is because of the PWM?

Thanks for the clarification; am glad I won't have to worry about purchasing any other accessories to be able to use the monitor when it arrives.

Thanks again.

you need to read before you post stuff like this, x-star and QNIX are the SAME, the difference is the box, and the name on the bezel.
