Only $259 now! nod

This made the FP back in July when it was $279, but it's now $20 less. This is the matte version, and it doesn't have much glare at all, unlike the glossy versions.

I purchased two of these last week from "dream-seller" to have have a dual QHD setup and they both arrived in 2 business days FedEx International Express from Korea. No dead pixels, perfect setup, boxes in great condition. They work amazingly well! I couldn't be happier.

This monitor has a Samsung PLS panel and is equivalent to the QNIX QX2710; s The links are for the matte version, but there is also a glossy version available for the same price. Note, this monitor only has input for Dual-Link DVI, so your desktop just needs a decent DVI port--even cheap $30 cards have this.

Here's a great review from TekSyndicate on this exact model:

I know there have been many of these postings lately, but for $259 (the lowest price ever) and the positive reviews--mine included--you can't beat this deal!

Just a heads up, those who purchased the X-Star from this seller are being charged duties from FedEX (around 20 dollars) in the form of a bill mailed about a month afterwards.


For Mac Users:
If your Mac has a dual link DVI connection on it (Older Mac Pros, Older PowerMac G5's, older Macbook Pros etc) then you don't need anything.

If you mac has a Mini DVI (older mac Minis, older iMac, older Macbook/Macbook Pros etc) then you will need a Mini DVI to DVI adapter, which is about $10 online.

If you have a modern Mac with a Thunderbolt or Mini DisplayPort then you will need a mini displayport to Dual Link DVI adapter. Monoprice sells them, but they aren't cheap; $70. Don't waste your money on the Apple adapter, at $130 it's highway robbery. Don't be tempted to buy the cheaper mini displayport to single link DVI adapters that are $10; they will only give you up to 1920x1200 resolution and the picture quality will look terrible.

Also if you have a modern Mac with HDMI do not use a HDMI to DVI cable; you will get the same issue as using the cheaper mini displayport adapter; only up to 1920x1200 resolution.

PC laptop Users:

You are probably going to be a no go on this monitor if you have a PC laptop, unless you have: 1 - an older PC laptop with a dual link dvi output (rare now a days) or a mini displayport or displayport output. In this case you will need a mini displayport to dual link DVI or a Displayport to dual link dvi adapter. Monoprice sells them.

If you have a corporate laptop; such as a Dell Latitude or HP Elitebook with docking capabilities then you will be able to get a docking station that has Dual Link DVI output.

PC Desktops

For Desktops check to see if you have DVI output. Some newer desktops only have VGA and Displayport or HDMI. In this case purchase a cheaper PCI Express video card, like a Radeon 6450; buy a better card if you have the budget. It's a better buy to purchase a video card than to use a Displayport to Dual Link DVI adapter and cheaper.

Did anyone else (in USA) get charged duty + advancement fees from FedEx? I received a remittance bill over a month after the monitor was delivered. I would have paid any duty at delivery, but not a month later under the assumption I did not have any...
yes, I just did, and it is 13.95 duty fee + 6.5 advancement fee,
someone online said if u setup a fedex account u may avoid the advancement fee.

I have one stuck green pixel on the middle right of the screen that I haven't tried fixing yet. Minor BLBs. Currently running at 96hz. It seems to run fine at 120 but it significantly darkens the screen - I haven't looked for color profiles to correct this yet. I'm currently using some qnix98hz color profile on 96hz.

I tried setting up mines but all i got was a blurred screen. I then tried hooking it up to my laptop with a geforce 750m and nothing appeared. I was using a dvi to hdmi adapter. Is there something wrong with my screen or is it just me?

Same here, just got a bill from FedEx for $19.45. I guess we have to pay? Kind of negated the $259 deal.

Agreed, Super tempted to just ignore it but I'll probz just pay. Since I got a perfect pixel with no back light bleed $280 was still a descent deal.

Can your first computer's video card support dual dvi? For your laptop, passive hdmi-dvi adapters will not work with this screen, so I'm not surprised.

Any one knows how much this monitor weights without the stand? I am planning to mount it. Thank you for your answer.

Just open up the package and turned it on. Screen just flashes red and green backgrounds with several vertical lines of different colors and a massive image of a crack. Not sure what to do....opening up a case against seller on ebay right now.

Frown. I would say it is just bad luck. Mine turned out perfect so far. I'm sure the seller will do their best to help.
