[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 975

post #9741 of 25893
By the way sometimes after a reboot CRU does not save my settings for some reason? Like right now Windows says I only have 60Hz available, but the nvidia control panel says I'm at 110 Hz. And it feels like that refreshrate too, but the problem is when I'm in a game, it will only display the 60Hz, not the 110Hz... Anyone?

Thanks for helping in advance! biggrin.gif


Yes and there are many other sources for that monitor along with the X-Star DP2710 equivalent.

I suggest exploring the first post in this thread.

Is this true that they are the same seller? I just ordered one from worldbest, he had two now its down to one more glossy. Sent an email just to be sure I get a glossy.

The wife is making me wait until Christmas before I get to use it. But I will be testing it out just to be sure everything works in case I need to ship it back.

Hoping for a good OC and that my 660's can handle 1440p just fine.

Got my second Qnix today, unplugged my old one, put in the new one, was initially very pleased as it has absolutely no backlight bleed what so ever, overclocked to 130Hz no issues. Opened up the Google homepage and noticed a problem right off the bat.

(Skip about 15 seconds in, the far shot bleaches the screens)
As is obvious, it has a slight yellow tint to it, and after testing it some more, it has very, very slight black crush. Not sure if this is the norm and my 'white' one is just a lucky one? I know "warm" is often an option on monitors but its something I hate. Anyone able to compare? My old one is totally pure white, the new one is like a very slight sepia filter.

I picked up a Qnix off CL a while back. How can I tell if its glossy or tempered glass? If it turns out to he glass(I think it is) it would appear there is a smudge between the glass and the panel, how do I remove the glass front?

PS: what size screws is everyone using for a vesa mount?

Hey there guys. So I just got my X-Star monitor in the mail and everything is perfect except that there is a fairly noticeable yellow hue. Wondering if anyone has any suggestions or color profiles they might mind sharing to help remedy this? As far as I could tell none of the ICC color profiles that are posted are for an overly yellow monitor. Thanks in advance!

Would explain things if so, since last night I put in an order for both Worldsbest AND green. Finally 56 hours later Green responded to all 6 of my emails from this week. Basically cut/pasted the same answer to all of them ignoring the questions lol.. but still answered at least one that it would be glossy. He still hasn't shipped though so hopefully it goes out today.

As for worlds best, they both literally gave me 1 star after the purchase, but I think it's automated, no response from him yet though.

Same boat here, check a few posts up. I was thinking about a colour profile, but I cant think how you could make a monitor display any whiter than it already can through a colour profile.

Two monitors with yellow tint. That sucks, which model and what seller did you guys use?

I had a Shimian and if anything it was a little cool. But to me it made for beautiful whites. I am going to be bummed if the one I just ordered comes with a yellow tint like that. I ordered the glossy evolution.

I just unboxed my QNIX. This is my first 1440p display and I am in awe. I ordered from green sum listing although I saw the worldbest one because of the rep (apparently some say they are the same person here) I wanted the gloss version as described in the listing unfortunately someone here said a note has to be sent to the seller or else you gonna get random matt/glossy. By that time, mine was already shipped imagined how bumped I was. Luckily I got the glossy, perfect panel no blb no yellow hue no dead pixel phew. Thanks to the fellows who contributed to this thread which led to my best buy of the year biggrin.gif
