I live in Canada and I didn't really want to buy online in case it was DOA so this was the only option for me as a local store got some in. Overall i'm very pleased.


I have a question about the power supply (forgive me as I know very little about this). So the moniter plugs into the brick looking thing, and another cord plugs into the brick which has the Korean plug on it, then I use the adapter shown by Scannal to plug the korean plug into my powerbar. Can i just ditch the Korean plug and adapter and plug a regular power supply cable into the brick??? It fits but I didn't want to do it without asking someone who knows better? The reason I ask is because the i can't tell which way to plug the adapter in, it doesn't fit snugly into the power bar, and it doesn't have the third point on the plug (which is the ground right?) Regardless it sketches me out so I'd thought I'd ask! Any help is appreciated!!!

Sorry to ask again but does anyone know the answer to my question?

It should work OK. I am using the enclosed adapter, but others have just used the appropriate power cord and done fine.

I believe if you search fleabay for "AC Adapter 24V 5A For EFL-2202W" You'll find what you need.

Re: Korean cable and adapter

 

Just use your own standard US power cord in place of the supplied cord and adapter. Not an issue. I use this for my Yamikasa Catleap that came with the same setup. No issues.... The supplied brick runs a bit hot, but it's not a big deal. If it concerns you, there are those $25 bricks available on eBay that can be used as well that are more specifically spec'd for US 110v power sources.

I just received my Qnix last night. Got lucky and did not have any dead or stuck pixels. The stand seems pretty cheap and wobbly though. The bezel is also thicker than I would have liked.

As for the panel itself, absolutely gorgeous. Even compared to my older 26" IPS, this thing is beautiful. I want another one now smile.gif

I just registered to chime in on this monitor. I wasn't interested in overclocking the monitor's refresh rate, nor working my way through the dozens of different brands or sellers online, so I literally just bought the first monitor on my search query that sold for under $350. It was a gamble since this thread is really the only real info I could find about this Qnix model online before purchasing. I pulled the trigger on a Wednesday evening and the monitor arrived at my doorstep today. A+ for ridiculously quick shipping!

I'm upgrading from a 28" TN panel running at 1920x1200. It has a wildly uneven backlight and poor horizontal and vertical viewing angles. Even sitting perfectly centered on the old screen, I could drag a solid block of color in Photoshop from the top to the bottom and notice a hue and brightness shift. In a dark room the bottom and sides have noticeable bleed. But size matters, and while I was tempted by the IPS screens I use at work, I couldn't drop down in screen size and wasn't going to pay $1,000+ to match it.

This screen has none of those problems. The previous TN panel's dark zone along the top of the monitor is gone, and I've not noticed any inconsistent lighting across the screen in the last few hours I've used it. I do notice some light bleed along the bottom, but since my room is extremely well lit with sunlight at the moment I can't say how much until tonight. The screen's glossy, and the bezel has a hideous sticker on the right that is a hassle to remove without ample amount of Goo Gone. This is also my first LED backlit monitor, so it's also much thinner and lighter than the monitor it replaces. I haven't noticed any dead pixels, but haven't run any tests to see if they're present. Will also run some games later to see how my GTX 460 holds up, but I'm not expecting much from a 2 year old card.

For those who do a lot of work in graphic design or video editing, I can't think of better value for the money. I can't discern any difference between this $300 monitor and the IPS screen on the 27" iMac I use at work. I'll try to borrow a friend's monitor calibration tool sometime next week to see if I can close whatever gap exists.

Welcome to the club. :-) Like you, I waded through all the reviews and such on the Korean monitors. And though this one was only mentioned one other place, I figured since they all use the same panel, they will look about the same. So my big deciding factor was the stand. Being easily removed I figured that is the stand sucked it would be an easy fix. Thankfully it works fine. And it was pretty inexpensive to boot. I hope others thinking about a monitor will give this one a look. I almost went with an iMon, since the stand was almost the same, but it was more expensive.

Now that I've had a day with the monitor, here's some more.

First off, whatever glossy coating they've applied to the panel itself is a double-edge sword. It makes colors pop on the screen a bit more, but you may have to rearrange your office environment to remove glare from appearing on the screen while you work. Strike two - while sitting front and center at the panel with a dark or black background, you might notice that the lower edges of the screen have a slightly lighter purplish hue that appears like light bleed. You'll also notice this band of color/lightness will move across the screen if keep your eyes on the screen as you stand up. These apparent color/light shifts disappear when you sit back at least 5 or so feet away from the monitor. This is quite apparent if you use a background wallpaper with dark corners.

Under most conditions you won't notice this, and the situations where I assume most would - watching a movie, playing a game - I'm sitting far enough away from the monitor such that the screen appears to be extremely even-lit.

I've also noticed one stuck/dead pixel, about 3 or so inches above the 'Q' on the front bezel. Not the best location, but considering the price paid, is one I'm not complaining much about. It's primarily apparent on white backgrounds, and it's hard to pick out unless I really try.

Still very satisfied with the purchase!

Also, this particular monitor can go up to 64mhz (archer: hooray...). Hopefully this tiny bump doesn't fry the internals up.

I haven't even tried to overclock mine. It's such a small gain, and I'd rather not risk damaging it.
