Do they still shipping out the wrong one? Like instead of Tempered glass, they ship out Matte?

I was unable to buy a second Glossy qnix. most of the sellers admitted they were selling the qnix tempered glass as the "new" glossy.

I think many people here are being fooled into thinking their tempered glass monitor is the same as the glossy. It is not.

What u mean it is "not" the same? Isn't tempered glass and glossy provide the glossiness? I dont see the difference in "reality". In theory it prob different.

Also does anyone know if these Qnix / X-star Evolution 2 PLS monitors hare wide gamut? Or are they just 2560-1440res PLS panel and that's it?

I mean exactly what I said. It's not the same monitor that was being sold 3 months ago.

I have the GLOSSY QNIX QX2710 Evolution II. There is no tempered glass plate between my view and the panel, there is only a Glossy panel without any matte coating, hence it is the Glossy version.

The TEMPERED GLASS QX2710 Evolution II adds a tempered glass plate between the bezel and panel. Some have even reported that the panel behind the tempered glass is matte coated, which defeats the purpose.

Regardless, it is a different monitor. I wanted another GLOSSY QX2710 and I can't find one because the sellers are now claiming the tempered glass model is the "Glossy" model. Maybe the Tempered Glass is just as good, but I don't want to buy one and find out it is not...

Whether if it has the matte behind the tempered glass or not, it still look the same man. Who told u it will look different with the matte behind the tempered glass?
Also I dont get why are they still selling "matte" screen? lol like who would use a matte screen monitor anymore? Like the only benefit u get is no reflection, but even if u see reflection, it's minimal with the screen turned on.

I ordered an X-STAR monitor. The box had a big X-STAR logo on it. I just noticed that the logo on the bezel says QNIX. Hah.

If its matte behind it it will be slightly darker and more contrast I believe the main worry is of its gloss or matte BEHIND the glass. I ordered gloss and got matte I removed the matte film and I can tell you there IS a difference

I'm sorry to say, but you don't seem to know much about the advantages/disadvantages between Matte, Glossy, or Tempered Glass monitors.

If the QNIX tempered glass has a matte panel installed, it degrades the image clarity/sharpness that a true Glossy (non-matte coated) panel would have. It's not all the same, but people are being tricked on ebay now.

QNIX QX2710 Glossy != QNIX QX2710 Tempered Glass != QNIX QX2710 Matte

These are three different monitors and buyers should be educated, not misled, on their differences.

In my experience, matte panels have the same observable image quality as glossy panels.

Matte panels may produce a grainy effect but most monitor manufacturers have alleviated these problems with matte monitors.

Especially if your room is exposed to sunlight, it makes perfect sense to get a matte panel.
