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.
I have to disagree with you there. IMO glossy panels look much more vibrant. The picture looks beautiful. With matte it is kind of dulled. That is my experience.

EDIT****

Anyone know if this tracking is showing my monitor in the US? Seems like it but then the December 1 hit shows korea again. Or does the Kentucky thing just mean they are anticipating it?

Pretty much this, While some mfc's MAY have gotten rid of the grainyness, there is still a small sacrifice made for matte over gloss. I left half on my X-star to prove this, color's were a bit brighter, darks could be seen better and weren't all blended together thanks to the matte film making dynamic contrast less annoying. There was about a 10 shade diff as well and sharpness went up.


Gloss on the left w/o matte, matte film on the right. For monitors like these, having darker colors/less backlight getting through = annoying when cranking them up to 120hz as intended. Granted there is a need for matte, just wanting to point out that there IS a difference.

I just received my Qnix QX2710 Matte and in black areas it looks like in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0y5Sv8fbcPo when viewed from angles, and when sitting straight on I can see it a little bit in the bottom right. Doesn't look like backlight bleed though

Is this normal?

Sorry to ask again if I did, which seller did you order from and did you grab gloss? If so they told you tempered + gloss right? Hopefully you'll be able to tell when you get it. Lemme know though as I'm debating on who to order through now as I can't trust greensum anymore w/ this whole " We only take the time to respond once a day " ordeal.

Once a day is annoying to me but its acceptable. I can't knock them for it.

I got it from worldsbest, and from the emails I have seen from greensum they appear to be the same.

I was happy with his responses though he was upfront and held my package until I confirmed I was ok with it. I am getting a tempred glass version. Do not plan to remove the glass unless it looks really bad. Don't want to risk damaging it unless totally necessary. But I will just be testing it and then wrapping it back up as this is my Christmas present from my wife.

Kk good to know ,

also worldsbest has a longer shipment date declared than greensum, any idea on that?

I"ll probably remove the panel on mine and test behind it to verify. Appreciate it, I think my monitor has a warm filter going for it, any tools out there that can help me set a cooler tone? I reduced the red's by about 3-4% so far. I just noticed I can clearly tell the diff in skin tone between monitors though lol.

I ordered a glossy QNIX from green-sum. I had no idea the "new glossy" = tempered glass. How do I remove the matte coating once I open up the monitor? Does it just peel right off?
post #10029 of 25969
Idk why the shipping times are different. Noticed that too. Mine is coming from ups. The speed is two business days which imo is crazy fast from Korea. I'm in California BTW. Don't like hearing that it's warm though. Someone posted their personal cool icc profile. Never tried it as I don't have mine but I think I downloaded it. Could share it if you want or maybe the guy that made it should idk his screen name it's in his Sig.
