[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 99

post #981 of 25922
Yeah I´ll probably get a letter in the mail. Wouldn´t surprise me at all. Anyway its an awesome monitor. Zero dead pixels, good amount of panel play to the right though, and probably a fair amount of backlight bleed, not good at judging that.

Tried patching my drivers and putting it in test mode, but the test mode text doesn´t appear and the max i can choose from windows settings is 60hz, what am I doing wrong? Never overclocked a monitor before lol.

@Lazdaa
Ordered from excellentcastle, shipped monday and arrived today. I think they marked it as 200 dollars but they never asked me about anything just shipped it out.

btw, is there any meaning running at 120hz if I only get 80-90fps from a game? I mean do I not need 120+ fps? if I use 120hz, should I use V-Sync or not? atm with my Dell 2408WFP@60hz I have V-Sync on.

Couldn tell you. Have the same doubts.

Higher refresh rate can reduce input lag slightly, regardless of FPS. Also having a significantly higher refresh rate than your FPS can significantly reduce visible tearing without v-sync.

So with that in mind, if your panel can do 120 without issues, I'd say go for it, and disable vsync, unless you're one of the extremely sensitive people who absolutely need 0 tearing ever (even I'm not that sensitive).

I swear that the backlight bleeding I saw yesterday and earlier this monitor must had completely disappeared right now as I don't see it anywhere! I had a pic of it earlier and now I'm not seeing it in that same spot...my monitor must be magical.O_o

Yeah like I said earlier my 7950 is kind of struggling now in BF3 according to perforverlay (spikey and mostly red numbers) but not so much that it feels like its not playable. You may not notice much visual difference anyway even pushing 120 frames; some people better at perceiving such than others. That said it is still worthwhile for the reason(s) mentioned above plus it is not really hard on your eyes, at least relative to 60hz.

Well...most like it's either brighter in your room now and/or you are viewing at a diff angle. Most of the bleed seems to be caused by a bent-ish metal frame so that couldnt fix itself. Though yours could have had a different cause I suppose.

My FedEx tracking page has just been updated, now it says "International shipment release - Import". I googled this line and some people say that it means it's now on it's way to a depot nearest to my place. If that's true, it means that it only took 9 hours to pass customs, weird.

EDIT: Holy *****, I've just received a text from FedEx saying that the parcel has passed the customs process and the total taxes I have to pay are $150. So the total price for the monitor is $309 + $150. It better be worth the price!biggrin.gif
