I have read that the QNIX or XSTAR korean 1440p PLS displays have reduced gamma (screen gets dark) when overclocked, and the colours are not as good as an IPS panel. Your experience may differ, but I'd do some research before recommending those monitors over a Catleap Extreme OC (price aside).

That's what I just said about my Qnix lol.. The Gamma part. The colors are the same as a ips panel when at 60hz..But all colors dim at higher hz..But if you use someone's custom 120hz profile with added gamma it will fix a lot of the issues but it is still dim and not as vibrant to me..

OK, don't get your panties in a knot. Since you don't need to research to verify the issues mentioned above, are you experiencing the same gamma darkening and less vibrant colours on your PLS monitor when overclocking that many others have noted? If you are, I'm just saying that you really should mention issues such as these before recommending the PLS monitors over the IPS to others. thumb.gif Cheers

Yup, the gamma darkens when overclocked, the monitor profiles help out tremendously, the colors DO seem a bit more vibrant on the catleap but it's definitely not worth 3 times the price IMO, and I also feel the Catleap has less of a chance to hit 120hz compared to the Qnix
Now if I was given a Catleap that reached 138hz or a Qnix that could reach 138hz, I'd choose the Catleap everytime, but now that I have both, I wouldn't pay even a $100 difference between the two

I agree most gamma darkening can be fixed with color profiles and to be honest while gaming it don't bother me.. Would I rather pay $300 for a monitor that OCs higher but losses a little gamma or $800 for one that Don't oc as high but colors stay the same while OCed.. I think anyone can figure out the answer to that..As who needs perfect colors at 120hz anyways lol.. Not many photo editors work in 120hz. smile.gif

Yes you can add more gamma but the picture will still look best at 60hz..
