You dont need a power adapter, but I would use a different cable. The plug in on the power block is the same 3 pin plug in thats on every power supply out there. I just grabbed an old spare PSU power cable and used it instead.

I just received my X-Star today and having two issues. First there is no signal being sent from my video card to the monitor. The monitor is powered and when I turn it on it flashes red, green and blue but then the blue light in the front of the monitor blinks and nothing is on the screen. Second, there's a pretty large gap between the top and bottom screen and the bezel. Has anyone had the same problems?

Hi All,

My QNIX arrived today, best £225 (including DHL duty fee). No dead pixels and some back light bleed bottom right hand side, it's not really bothering me at the moment to open it up and sort out.

Coming from dual 20" monitors the amount of screen real estate is crazy biggrin.gif.

Found 1 dead pixel :'(
Also some BLB. Oh well, I knew what to expect for this price, still a good product. Unfortunately, cannot unsee.

So the seller responded, and apologized for selling me a matte, and offered to return for a refund, or if I wanted to keep it he'd partially refund me.

I have the monitor on at home and no more lines so guessing it was just my Nvidia 335m having startup issues, though worked fine after my last post. Now I'm home and this thing does look amazing though darks are super dark, dunno if theres anyway to turn dynamic contract on/off but next to my HP monitors I can def see the diff in color. For a matte screen its amazing, so I'm sure I'll be 2x impressed w/ an actual gloss.

Dream seller seems to only be selling gloss fro 700$ (why ? ) and there's also tempered glass models which noones gotten back on if theyr'e gloss underneath, better, or just matte /semi.

I'll probably go w/ the accessories person on ebay as they seem to have a good stock of gloss.

The brightness hurts my eyes atm but I can't see anything w/o it up when it comes to blacks and others, they're way to deep lol.

Got my X-Star in today. Sprung extra for tempered glass. I prefer the mac cinema display look and coming from an achieva shimian, I had always kicked myself for not getting a tempered glass screen. The glare was a little bit worse but the colors just seem better, and it will be easier to clean.

My monitor overclocks to 110 hz. Tried 120 but the hz test showed that my monitor was maxing out at 110. Not a big deal to me. Played some starcraft 2 and it made a world of difference, I could more accurately see my cursor in intense gaming situations.

The stand is pretty bad but not as bad as the one on my achieva shimian. They put the monitor on tilt which is very annoying. The old monoprice monitor stand I got takes up way too much space on my desktop so I sprung for the gateway monitor stand. I wanted a dell one just because I have owned many dells in the past but for the dells you have to by the stand and their special vesa adapter which is somewhat expensive given you have to pay S&H twice. The gateway wasn't cheap either but at least it has the USB hub.

Sadly, my monitor has a cluster of pixels in the bottom right that glow a little bit brighter than all the other pixels. I assume this is backlight bleed. My achieva shimian basically looked perfect to me so this is a downgrade in that aspect. I knew the chances and I'm ok with it. At least there are no stuck pixels and I only notice it if I'm watching out for it. It is barely noticeable in most situations.

Considering that they charge so much for gaming monitors with fast refresh and crappier resolution/color accuracy from TN panels I am extremely happy with my purchase. It's not perfect but this monitor is a great balance for media consumption, productivity, and gaming.

I was under the assumption from reading that gloss > tempered glass. Is it the other way around? Been trying to find out.

Looking to order this unless anyone knows anywhere better, OR if Tempered = better than gloss as in still glossy but adds ????????????????

much appreciated
