Korean QNIX QX2710 Evolution ll 27" 2560x1440 Matte Samsung PLS panel ?? - Page 13

post #121 of 3099
I'm probably gonna be buying this monitor as well, it's the cheapest one on eBay and the price just seems to keep getting lower (either that or the Canadian dollar is gaining on the Greenback). Just stuck deciding between glossy, matte & tempered glass. I am a big supporter of Plasma TV's and also have an XPS 15 with RGB LED, so I am used to glossy screens. Can't say I like them very much but any degredation in picture quality is unacceptable to me. I suppose the tempered glass looks the nicest (aesthetically) with it's edge to edge glass, but getting dust behind it scares me too.

Also, what happened to all the talk about overclocking some of these 2560x1440 monitors? I know this one can't do it, but did they stop making the Rev B Catleaps?

Hey guys, I pM'ed the reputable monitor reviewer NCX (he did one of the best reviews on the Samsung PLS) and he said the following

"The Qinx aren't PLS they are just re-branded IPS with the same bezel as multiple Crossover models, the new Monoprice models and the DGM IPS-2701WPH."

Heres a link to some of his work. http://wecravegamestoo.com/forums/monitor-reviews-discussion/11198-samsung-s27a850d-review.html

So if this is the case then this would just be the cheapest ips option currently out there.

Has he actually tested one or is that his educated guess?

I'm NCX. It is an educated guess, it's pretty easy to figure it out since it has the same bezel many other re-branded IPS and nowhere on the box does it say it's a PLS panel. Usually these sorts of things are advertised. The other models all clearly state IPS on the box as well as in the advertising, as do true PLS panels.

The other model Qnix sells, the Qnix QX2700 27 is also a re-branded IPS panel.

I thought that keeping the same bezel makes them cheap. Why shoudl they change it if you want to keep the low production cost rather than just swich the panel inside and some electronic. I think that one of the owner should just unscrew the back cover and solve the mystery:p

And what if they re not advertising about PLS Samsung panel because they re not alowed to??

Why would all the ebay sellers say it's a Samsung PLS panel if it isn't. That'd be false advertising. Don't try to start rumors unless you have facts.

So that they can sell panels to misinformed consumers who think PLS>IPS and gain a slight edge in sales on this dime-a-dozen model? There is no evidence which proves that this is a PLS panel, you don't think it is suspicious that it does not say PLS on the box or have a special advert like all the other Korean models? All evidence points to these being IPS just like the 4+ other IPS panels which use the same casing and stand.

Well if there becomes proof they are in fact IPS and not PLS, is that not false advertising? ... and would that be grounds to return it on, seeing as I wouldn't have received what I thought I had ordered?
post #130 of 3099
Maybe since they did so well re-purposing the not perfect IPS panels they are staring to do the same with the Samsung PLS panels as well. It would be nice to have some proof from someone who has already purchased it though.
