Depends first if you have glossy or matte underneath, from what we've been seeing it seems 50/50. As for removing the matte film the process takes about 5-6 hours. First 15-20 minutes dismantling it ( takes a while due to being careful ) the next 5-6 hours letting it sit w/ damp towerls over the screen until the film loosens up enough to remove it. Then its about a 5 minute process of putting it back together.

I'm very pleased after removing mine, I'm in LOVE w/ this monitor. My light is overhead in my room so I have like 0% reflection most of the time. Lovin the deep blacks and colors.

Could share it if you want or maybe the guy that made it should idk his screen name it's in his Sig.

Yeah I think there was a tool someone posted I"m browsing through now where it gives the options almost like having an OSD.

LunaP, how do I tell if I have matte or glossy under the tempered glass. Do you have a guide or know of a link to removing matte?

I'll have to wait for my tempered to arrive to make a guide so I can see how the glass is taped on.

As for telling which you have? I'd guess by dimming the lights a bit and looking @ all angles @ the reflection and checking for any blur. If you see blur matte exists if its just pure 100% reflection then it should be gloss. Though I'll know once I receive it.

Seems like it's hard to really say for sure as it seems fairly subjective to ones eyes unless we all actually open ours up. I will report what mine appears to be when I get it.

I'm 99.99999 per cent sure mine is glossy beneath the tempered glass just by the way it looks and by comparison to the asus pb278q matte screen i had, plus accessorieswhole confirmed it's glossy, but not knowing for 100% sure is... irritating lol. I have sent them off another email just for clarification, i don't want them telling me what they think i want to hear, i just want the truth from them. I will let you guys know what they say. FTR this is what i sent them...


Hi, sorry to bother you again, but i am seeing some reports from people that the qnix tempered glass 2710 has a matte screen underneath.If it does it's no big deal, i will just remove it myself, Just wondering if you can confirm either way if it's glossy or matte or is it a fifty fifty chance of being either? Thanks!
I'm back baby!!!

Tempered glass left vs. glossy.


Tempered glass left vs. semi-glossy (same coating as the Qnix). This photo is much better


It should be pretty obvious if the monitor is using tempered glass.

Can someone cypher this email from overclockmonitor.com, I have no idea what he's talking about

First of all, thank you for your purchase.

Regarding the panel, the manufacturer currently produces glossy panel as; just a panel(people call it glossy) + anti-glare coating + tempered glass. This is also applied to AH-IPS panel which is newest LG's panel and LG calls it 'Glossy' panel. Well, QNIX uses SAMSUNG PLS panel, but we are just letting you know how the glossy panel is like. We are holding your item. Please let us know if we can ship the monitor(in your definition, it's tempered glass) or not.

Thank you.

Best regards,

I bet they really have no idea. I'm pretty sure I just got a standard matte my self, no tempered glass or anything and I love it. Best 300$ I ever spent running 110hz now for a couple months no issues.

Hi guys I had my 27" qnix 1440p OC'd to 110hz for about 2 months before it stopped turning on for me, the screen did start to glitch and then shut off with a puff of smoke coming out the back on it's hopefully not final working hour, I THINK I have found the problem, but cannot replace the part because I have no idea what it says... here's a pic - i've circled the part that's faulty (assuming it's not meant to have a melted hole through the middle) and if anyone can help identify what it is that would be ****in awesome!

the two parts that look the same next to it say Z2W and than a 32 on it's side, but the one that's faulty is different I have no idea what it says in place of Z2W but I can see that it has a 25 on its side rather than a 32. If any one could help me out it would be much appreciated! Thanks heaps biggrin.gif
