If it was a single dead pixel, it would be hard to spot even close up. Remember, thats 3,686,400 pixels (2560x1440) in a 27" screen. Could be a cluster of dead pixels if its that easily noticeable.

My dead pixel is always black, but I can't see it unless I actually look for it and at some viewing angles it disappears completely, I am surprised you can see yours so easily from across the room, I know I wouldn't be able to

Maybe you have a cluster of them or it is a stuck or bright pixel, is it always black like mine on different colour backgrounds ?

I think this is the first time I have had a dead pixel, or at least haven't noticed them before, so have been looking up the difference between dead/stuck etc and how to fix them, sounds like dead/black pixels are much rarer to fix than the others, but at least it doesn't make itself seen unlike other types that stick out on certain backgrounds

I popped out of the room without hitting submit and you asked the same thing in the meantime, but I too am wondering if it is a cluster or different than my dead pixel for it to stick out, mine isn't easy to spot on certain colours, can't see it at all on some, doesn't show up on some viewing angles etc and certainly wouldn't see it across the room no matter the colour being shown

I have to lean in towards the monitor to see mine more clearly, lean back and the opposite happens and it's hard to spot even on a white background

I will say this, i have contacted helloemart THREE times in the last 24 hours with NO response whatsoever. If you're looking for a crossover i suggest looking somewhere else other than them.


Did you do this before trying?

Mine also displayed that message when I first tried, then I followed the tutorial and now it overclocks fine. (pixel perfect from helloemart)

I know this is a stupid question but are you sure its not dust or dirt?
I was paranoid and thought the same thing I thought I had like 4-5 dead pixels. They were very small. Then I brushed my screen with a cloth and they disappeared. LOL.
Yea it was some dust....

So many new posts in about a day... wow... if you're having trouble maybe slow down a tad and search this thread... I found all I needed here.

Overclocking of the panel:
1. Did you first buy the right model... 2795 with 100Hz clock?
2. If you're using CRU did you apply the right driver patch? CRU won't work without patching... if you're stuck on 60Hz that's probably it.
3. If you're failing with Nvidia's custom resolution though - I'd check to make sure you have the right monitor delivered (while it says test failed... did it remain in a black screen until that message popped?)
4. Overclocking the panel is also dependent on your video card... my old AMD 6950 hacked could do 110Hz... my new MSI 970 ME100 can only do 105Hz
5. Just thought of another... make sure you set it as your primary display if you're running more than one monitor

Colors... it's hard for us to comment on color from a photo taken of the screen - we don't know your setup (your photo is also overexposed leading to both screens looking washed out). If you think your Acer monitor is right (I don't actually) it just means you have a preference for a "cool" white point... If that's the case you'll probably have to mess with your vid card drivers to set it up how you like it. The 2795 has a warmer white point (which I prefer for photo editting.. the icc profile posted is also for a "warmer" white point of 6500). Other things to check - are you running other color profiles? From memory, Windows only supports one color profile even if you have two or three monitors set up. By default the 2795 is very punchy with colors if all your other settings are default. You could try 1. removing your video card drivers with Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) in Safe mode and then reinstalling them 2. Using CRU to reset all detected displays - this should ensure that you get an accurate picture of the monitor in stock settings.

Stuck/dead pixels... try some of the online tools that flashes various different colors for a day or so (not 1hr or less)... there have been reports of those pixels being unstuck (dead pixels tend to remain dead, though). That said, I'd prefer dead pixels because they will remain black and hard to notice especially at this density. With stuck pixels, apart from those tools, massaging them may help (it has only worked once on a very old panel for me).

For the other person who's encountered streaks after a period of use (were you overclocking it excessively?) also... I would have thought the seller would replace the monitor beyond 14 days (shipping aside)... sorry you have that problem frown.gif *Touching wood* mine's still going strong

Thinking about picking up this monitor and have a couple questions. Does something like a Square Trade warranty protect this monitor if something were to go wrong? Also, has anyone attempted to "paint" their bezel like this thread for the QNIX? When I was contemplating purchasing the QNIX I thought about following that guide and the bezels on the monitor look quite similar. If possible I'd like to get rid of that gloss. redface.gif

TIA! I recently had a Asus ROG Swift and while I loved it, I didn't love the price and didn't feel that G-Sync gave me much of a benefit in the games I play. This monitor looks almost perfect for my needs, especially after I add a VESA mount.

Ok, I am trying an hour long seizure inducing youtube pixel fixer right now and I will run it a few times. Maybe someone can comment but I think it is in fact only one stuck pixel. It looks almost like a bright green or blue pixel and on a black screen, my eyes can see it 8 feet away. I tried to take it as close as possible. Maybe my eyes are just too picky, I don't think it is a cluster.?.




It really sucks because I played a game of Arkham Knight and it is really cool to have fps cap at 90 (usually only getting around 55-60 but still) with 1440P and then having my eyes instantly notice that pixel.mad.gif Otherwise, not a bad monitor.

I massaged it again but I am afraid of doing it too hard. We'll see what happens....

EDIT: dam the more i do research feels like everyone is stuck at 96Hz stable no 110hz anyone have any insight? debating whether to get a 144hz @ 1080 monitor to go wtih my 2560x1440 or getting one of these and hoping for a 110hz :/

Yeah, I got 110Hz. But it kept bugging out for random things. Like /r/battlefield's snow header https://gfycat.com/AgedTalkativeDassie or while playing darker maps in Rocket League. No problems in Dark Souls though. Still... I backed down to 96 for that neat stability.

edit: 110Hz in CRU with LCD reduced. Using R9 290 and stock cable.

With those 75Hz Realclock auctions on ebay, I am sure I read to avoid those and look for 100Hz mentioned in the auction listings, like was the case in the helloemart one I bought.

I got one from his first batch of 20 before he put the price up $10 ( but the Aus dollar is worth more atm than when I bought it, to equal that out ), I think it has one dead/black pixel two inches from the side, which I only notice if I look for it, but I would have picked that over a bad overclocker, bad bleeding, bezel away from the screen which has happened in this thread, so I am happy enough, lesser of all evils and tbh I couldn't do anything about it anyway, one dead pixel is allowed under hellomarts perfect pixel policy, which is better than 3 allowed under dream seller for the same 'perfect pixel'

With overclocking, I did do it in Nvidia control panel first and still have it set there, but when I loaded up a game to see the resolution/Hz options ( Divinity : Original Sin ), it didn't show 96Hz as an option and I then did the pixel clock patcher/CRU method mentioned earlier in this thread ( page 107 ) and then 96Hz did show up as an option, I haven't tried higher than 96Hz and probably won't

If you get one, hopefully you get a good one thumb.gif

Thanks for the info!

Good to know the kettle cord plugs straight it (and obviously then the brick ranges up to 240 V for us backwards people). A couple of my last Samsungs used those annoying two prong power cords so you could only use a specific cord for that brick. rolleyes.gif

You can even find a power brick for your 950d:

That's okay, these all look legitimate. And anyway the brand names have proven that theirs can equally fail as catastrophically and they won't take responsibility...

What I was concerned of are these $2 imitations without any certification labeled on the brick itself. At one stage there were a lot of these circulating here in Australia for laptops and phones especially.

This is definitely the more concerning aspect. I don't know how it is overseas, but these very very confusing and sometimes contradicting descriptions won't hold here under consumer law. I imagine it'd be very easy to receive a full refund here in Australia based on some of the information being presented by posters.
