official response from nvidia does not give any reason to be optimistic about a proper fix to this issue.
all of the above leads me to the recommendation not to buy korean screens if you are an avid nvidia fan, as they cannot be calibrated on a hardware level and there's no way to force the software calibration in fullscreen games.

i am kinda puzzled by the fact that people aren't screaming in rage about this smile.gif the foremost reason for buying these screens if the fact that you get the best of both worlds, right? 120Hz and accurate colors (well, not so accurate in case of nvidia users).....

This is assuming that all monitors aren't properly calibrated. It's random out of the factory but there is tuning somewhat. Nothing like a commercial release so it's hit and miss but rarely by that much, there are bad batches however.

i have however used and calibrated the screen with MCW in the past week and have been using a persistent profile created by MCW itself, sadly to no avail. i'm quite confident that i have used it correctly and it leads me to think that what you suggested will not work either, but i will give it a try later, it's only a couple of minutes, after all.

my guess is that nvidia users aren't up in arms about this for several reasons.

1.) they have zero idea about proper colors and they don't care (i.e. using TN panel monitors for gaming).
2.) they use screens with HW color options (i.e. monitors with OSD, which alleviates the problem - i can say i haven't been awre of this issue as up until a short time ago, i have been using exclusively DELL monitors with OSD and all that shebang and i haven't even used ICC profiles, i just set the colors up with the monitor OSD and i guess the majority of users do it like that as well)


so i guess it's either lack of knowledge or ignorance, or both (at least i didn't care up until now) smile.gif

Don't forget 3) Monitors may have close to perfect color in which no one² going to notice a small change. Not every monitor is the same, which means there are probably a lucky bunch.

² If you're doing artwork or heavy photoshop and design like I do ( especially for comics ) then yes colors are important.

Apparently I'm very lucky w/ mine as my only issue thus far has been w/ somewhat saturated red which I've reduced by about 7% in its brightness and lowered vibrance by 5% Now everythings balanced beautifully. As far as color profiles, I'm not sure if it was you that was asking but I ran some tests with Tomb Raider and I can see the diff between the 2 I made loaded in full screen and in window.

I was considering jumping to the 290X but still waiting for them to fix some of the underlying issues that have been reported over the years as for Crossfire. Once I see stable cards, then possibly, but this means I'll be swapping from a surround setup + 1 to an eyefinity setup of 5 lol = I'll have to sell both my Titans( grabbing a 3rd ) and get 4x 290x's for 5x 1440p @ 100hz biggrin.gif

That's a lotta debezzling lolol.

A lot of money a lot of debezzeling a lot of trouble shooting no matter which way you go i reckon. Will be awesome once it's all set up tho. I had eyefinity and crossfire and discovered the 2 don't play well together. Got rid of eyefinity, then got rid of crossfire lol, but getting rid of crossfire was only due to needing the money not because of difficulties. I am feeling a little urge to go eyefinity with these in portrait mode lol, but the crap shoot on what is behind the tempered glass makes me nervous on grabbing 2 more and hoping they match. Not knowing about 1 in isolation is less of a big deal, but having the differences staring you in the face, no thanks lol.


So your saying you got mcw to force the profile with a Nvidia card and keep it loaded in full screen?

I wasn't using MCW I just installed and updated the ICM's, I'm considering purchasing a spyder though. Originally I was looking @ EIZO monitors for my lightroom / photoshop work lol, these monitors are really nice though.

I'll be buying 3 of them if I have to return my glass ones, and just remove the film myself.

I've been lurking this thread for well over a month, and i finally decided to get a qnix. The qnix arrived is just 2 days from storewithstory. zero dead/stuck pixels (i didn't buy a perfect)
No BLB at all, but a strong tint of warm yellow on the lower half of the screen. It looks like i have f.lux turned on only on the bottom half, I think it will take some time getting used to.
I live in denmark and the package was sent with DHL. The seller marked the package $85 which resulted in me saving $84 in import fees. biggrin.gif
DHL has a taxing brokerage free of $32 which is totally legit compared to the $30 of Post Danmark which usually take 1-2 weeks to process the package, which is insane compared to the few hours DHL takes.
The monitor overclocks easily to 120 hertz with only a few scanlines. I decided to go ahead and order a new high quality cable which will arrive tomorrow.

Is there a fix for the yellow tint on the bottom of the screen, i know i've read something about it in the thread but on what page i don't know rolleyes.gif

All in all i paid $299 + $20 Shipping + $55 is import fees, and $20 for a new cable.

I don't regret getting this monitor over the ASUS VG278HE at all. smile.gif

Finally clicked the "Buy it Now" button yesterday and bought QNIX from gn_whole from ebay... He opted for EMS to minimize the additional cost/fees by my request. It was dispatched about 3 hours ago from KR... I hope there will be no physical damage when arrived. I will probably get it by Friday or next week due to EMS and clearing stuff or probably from slow process than FedEx. Wish me luck!

I'm tempted to a get a matte screen on the next one to not worry about another shattering. There really isn't much protection for the screen just the little layer of bubble wrap they use. But obviously plenty of others got theirs fine.
