Qnix QX2700 27" Korean monitor review - Page 5

post #41 of 195
Anyone know what the input lag is like on these bad boys? It's really the only thing keeping me back from buying one - I seem to be really sensitive to it. Thanks in advance
post #42 of 195
I most recently tried with an asus EAH6850 which has both DVI-I and DVI-D type ports. The box says that both of the the ports on the card support Dual Link. If I'm not mistaken I think the only difference in the ports as long as they are rate as dual link is that one port includes the analog (RGB) slots on it as well and the other is 100% digital.

Anyway, I've tried 5 different graphics cards, 3 different computers, a 110V to 220V 300W transformer and 3 different dual link DVI cables and haven't been able to get beyond the low res windows boot screen. I've run out of things to try and am sending the monitor back. The vendor has been understanding so far and says he will only charge me to ship it back to Korea if he is able to get it working on his and and show that actually works. Based on the 25 hours and number of ways I've tried this, I'll be amazed if he gets it working. I just hope that he is honest in his assessment.

Thanks for all of your ideas.

How does the Qnix 27" Korean S-IPS monitor compare to CrossOver, Yamakasi and ACHIEVA Shimian?
post #45 of 195
Just got mine from BigCloth - sold my Apple Cinema Display in favor of completing my 3d-Surround with (3) Planar SA2311W's, then when I got everything in, I missed the mass real estate on one screen, and the fine resolution and vibrant LED backlighting of my Apple Cinema Display. For less than 1/3rd of what I sold my ACD for, I bought the QX2700 (no tempered glass, just the base model with speakers I won't ever use).

I currently have it rotated portrait and sitting on edge until I can get an appropriate stand or arm or mount. I have my (3) 120HZ monitors very low on my desk and may mount the 27" IPS landscape above the center display, or go for another 2 of these in portrait mode and do away with the 2311W's, though I sometimes get the bug to play the occasional game in Stereo 3D.

Impressions:
ORDERING - Got a near immediate e-mail from the seller asking the usual questions including my video card type. (In my case, SLI'd GTX 680 4GB's + 1 GTX 460 -- more on this later).

SHIPMENT - About 4 hours after replying to the email (I am a night person), I had DHL shipping and it had been picked up. (Wed 11/28). Arrived today (11/29) in the midwest United States. AMAZING. Came wrapped with white foam around the box. Seems to have survived the trip well..

UNBOXING - Monitor, stand, dual-link DVI cable, 1/8-1/8 audio cable, A/C adapter*, power cord for A/C adapter (Korean 2 round pins), adapter for 2 round pins to american 2 round pins*, some literature in Korean (a CD-liner sized pamphlet, nothing useful). The box was re-taped, so the seller did take the time to look the panel over. I am immediately going to order a 110V AC adapter from ebay, since I got the "230 V" input-rated adapter, with a sticker saying "110V also acceptable" - They are on the 'bay for $25 delivered, which is fine, but the seller's subtitle said "110 ~ 230V adapter included!". That would be my only gripe. I suppose I could feed it 2 phase but that's a little bit of overkill for avoiding a $25 purchase.

QUALITY - stand is basic, doesn't allow much tilting back, but I expected that and bought this model because the VESA mounts are removable without tearing apart the display. Main unit is solid enough, I am going to cover up the awkward "QX2700LED" in the upper left with some electrical tape, or see if someone has a trick for removing that. The panel - PERFECT - black screen showed very little bleed, which when shifting views went away, so I am thinking this may be IPS glow, as I had as much if not more of this from my Apple Cinema Display (!). Pixels? Not one dead one I have been able to find yet, using the Red, Green, Blue, Black, White test patterns, and also the checkerboard patterns that are made to highlight for example specific color pixel problems. Where I thought I had one was dust (most likely from here, it's dusty in this old house) - color uniformity is superb - calibration is not too far off of my calibrated 2311's, even the whites. I have heard these panels come showing too much blue, I didn't notice that here.

I rotated it 90 degrees and ran it in portrait and pulled up and worked on a word document all afternoon - white is white from the top of the display all the way to the bottom and from left to right. No yellow issues, no dead pixels, no excessive backlight bleed - and this was NOT a "Pixel Perfect" display.

NOTES - I am going to order the adapter off the bay for 110 V - call me paranoid. I was able to drive this off of both my GTX680 4GB SLI setup (any of the DVI ports) without issue - and I also tried the GTX-460 768MB (normally dedicated to physx and accessory display since my 3D setup and SLI combine to not have the ports I need - the drivers insist that the "accessory" display outside of the surround group be connected to either HDMI or DisplayPort on the card that has the "most" displays connected to it - meaning both DL-DVI's are in use. The display drives perfectly from either DVI port of a GTX460. I will try gaming with the panel later or this weekend.

I am happy with the seller, and may purchase another of these. They make my 120hz units look sad in color saturation and brightness/vividness - though to be fair, these are matte panels in the 120hz units, and are pretty high end Planar units though CCFL backlit. Pitty Planar exited the 120hz Nvidia 3D market without putting out an LED backlit model - I think the CCFL backlighting doesn't do these 120hz Planar panels justice.

I may give up on 3D surround, keep one of the 2311 120HZ displays for 3D stuff, and go with a 2nd QX2700 to make a pair in portrait sitting on either side of my 120hz - rotating one 90 degrees and the other 270 degrees so the buttons for each of the QX2700's accessible.

Overall, for the ~$300 I paid delivered for this display, there hasn't been a better buy I can remember in recent history. Do you think I can get this lucky twice in a row with my 2nd display order? FLAWLESS image. I dare say less backlight bleed than my ACD.

One thing is the display EDID's itself to the PC as QHD270QHD270QHD270 - so I am guessing they borrowed the driver/interface board from the other brands.

I hope I am not doing any damage to things by running the 230V adapter on 110V until the "correct" unit arrives.

Hey guys, just found this AC adapter for US "4-Pin 24V AC Adapter For Effinet EFL-2202W FY2405000 LCD Power Supply Global PSU":
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=121001065612

Someone either in this thread or somewhere else related to worry about the power brick mentioned that the EFL-2202W power supply from another seller works with this monitor (Qnix QX2700 in my case) but the link to the auction did not have UL approval, this auction claims to have multiple approvals. Whether its true or not at least the insurance company won't blame it on your korean faulty brick that bricked your house because it was not within regulation.

Anyway figured people would find it useful and safer than sticking with the stock brick thats 'iffy'. Also I'll let you guys know how it goes when I get mine. Best of luck to everyone

I also bought that one because I was paranoid and I was having colored snow issues. The power brick that mine came with was 220V, but it had a sticker saying 100V was ok. Like I'm going to believe a sticker smile.gif. The new power brick didn't solve my snow issue though. If I turn my monitor on/off a few times it finally goes away... I've contacted BCC about the issue and asked if it's possibly a PCB issue. I've also swapped dvi cables, that doesn't help either. Anyone have any idea what could be causing the snow? It happens on my 7950, my old 8800GTS, and also on different computers, so it's not driver related and I've narrowed it down to the monitor directly.

Here's what I'm seeing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrRjbsBwz9w

Forgot to mention, the snow happens from boot, if im in BIOS, and in Windows.

Thanks for the review.

Really tempted to buy this monitor now.

I ordered the power brick referenced above - as mine seems a little warm after a day's use - not really cause for grave concern, I don't think, but $25 for a little peace of mind isn't bad. I'm considering buying the SquareTrade warranty for $40 or so for 3 years, I think it is, I'm just wondering what they would do in this event since these things aren't really sold in the U.S. - they say they will repair or pay the cost of replacement, so I would imagine that would be limited to what I paid, or if not, a comparable display in features/quality - like the Dell 27" IPS or I-forget-what-brand version of the Korean displays being sold at MicroCenters, etc. in the US?

Been a few days and I'm trying to figure out what to use for a VESA mount/arm to position this new panel directly above my surround displays that are sitting on my desk. I don't really have a need for aftermarket mounts for my (3) 23" 120hz panels, but to get the QX2700 "floating" above the center one. That screen real estate really comes in handy for remote administration of multiple machines, coding, etc. I'm thinking of getting a second one from the same seller before these go up in price since the few other reviews I've been able to find have been pretty much equally favorable.
