Thanks!

Yes, in terms of displaying an image reliably. I'd take a look at GPU horsepower if you are looking to run this full native resolution in a recent 3D title. I have a 680 4GB x 2 SLI that handles it nicely, whereas the 2nd one I bought is on a 460 1GB and is a slideshow at times, 3D-wise. (Fine for desktop/productivity work).

I had a 27 Apple Cinema Display prior to this, so there was its profile listed (I run MacOS), I chose it and the panel snapped-to. I hear those profiles can be exported for use on Mac/Windows. My (2) units didn't have the excessive blues that I often hear about (BCC), and the white point was "just about right" compared to my 6500k displays out of the box.

Seems like that might cause problems down the road if it's always running on less voltage than spec. Not an electrician, so pls dont kill me if I sound clueless about power and voltage.

I ordered replacement bricks for both of mine, they ran on the original bricks with the "stickers" for 1-2 weeks respectively without fire or doom, but you could smell them getting a little warm.. I bought a couple off of eBay to replace them, and have been fine - will almost 100% be way cheaper than stepping up 110V to 220-230V, since that requires a little more to be done properly (if you were just running your shaver or hair dryer, that would be one thing, but what you need for electronic equipment will be bulky (transformer) or questionable output quality (switching) -- you prefer the bulky in this case). The adapters were under US$25 delivered priority mail each.

I've found several step up transformers (110-220) for sale around $25 so not sure which way to go. I assume that since yours is working fine on 110 with the new power strip then the Qnix are designed to run on that voltage.

As for GPU horsepower, I plan to use a single super-overclocked 580GTX. Do you think I'll be okay? I play World of Tanks, Fallout3NV, Mass Effect, XCOM. Only WoT would fall in the FPS category.

So I got my QNIX today and I have to say I am very disappointed. The monitor has the color lines/snow and the speakers pop when I turn it on. Did anybody figure out how to fix this?

Never heard of your first problem.

Also all monitor speakers have that problem.

where did you get this monitor? Was it a perfect pixel one?
Request for a replacement

Yes it was a perfect pixel one. After reading around it seems like some korean sellers aren't providing the correct power supplies for the US.

They're not being entirely transparent with the power supplies.
