You guys are wasting your time trying to explain this to green-sum. I went through this same topic with them a month ago. I ended up talking to the same person on ebay and their two retail sites (this is before I discovered it was all the same seller). They all tried to lure me into buying a Glossy that was really Tempered Glass.

All three times they, only after showing that I owned the real Glossy model, did they admit they new they were selling tempered glass as the "new" glossy.

In other words. green-sum KNOWS they are selling the tempered glass model incorrectly as Glossy. They don't care because unaware customers will buy it on ebay and think nothing of it, assuming they have a glossy monitor. It's completely dishonest, but that's typical for these sellers. They just want to move the product any way possible, look at the Perfect Pixel scam...

I'll just wait until another Glossy monitor is available.thumb.gif

Valueable info. +1.
So what's the story with these reguarding glossy versions? I hear that they once had glossy and now they don't but there will in the future?

Hey guys, I ordered one of these last week and got it yesterday. This was well worth the price after following this thread the past couple of months. Amazing picture.

I have a question about the vesa mounting though. I have this one here http://www.monoprice.com/Product/?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=5970&seq=1&format=2#description and used the screws that came with it which I believe are m4 10mm screws and they ended up being too long, which I thought were just too snug at first, but nope. I tightened past the other end and two others just became stuck and couldn't unscrew. The vesa holes were spinning with em. 30 minutes later with a pair of needle nose pliers got them out. They fit perfectly on the acer h233h.

Just curious if anyone else had this problem? I'm going to see if I can find 8mm screws this weekend, but it really sucked going through that haha. Just curious if anyone else had problems with the screws that came with that vesa mount?


Another issue I had after this I noticed the front of the bezel where the middle logo is has a pretty decent sized gap, is this normal? I actually took it off (twice) and couldn't fix it. Just warped I guess. Guess that's one of the downsides I'm hoping and not a defect on my end.

Anyway, awesome site/forums and this monitor is damn sexy.

We've had one that received a tempered glass from him that had gloss under the glass.

First of all, I appreciate your continuous interest and orders in our product.

I contacted manufacturer to check up if original Glossy panel is available, and opened our stock to check the panel before shipping.
Currently manufacturer produces Glossy panel monitor with tempered glass.
It seems to take time to restock Glossy panel one you are looking for.
I know you may be confused the word " Glossy ",however we are also following the description provide from manufacturer.

If you receive the item, I guess you are not satisfied with the panel again.
Therefore I suggest that we cancle the last transaction and will inform you if original version glossy panel without glass is available.
Is that ok with you?
And we will refund the other 2 transactions after item return. Would you like to accept this?

Because we would like to give you full satisfaction.
And we are willing to offer the best price if glossy panel without tempered glass model is ready.
Hope you understand the situation, we will do as you would like to do. please let us know.
Looking forward to your reply.

All I asked was for him to confirm that the panel I received as well as the one I ordered is the gloss + tempered glass...lol wth

Either way as long as he doesn't cancel my order out of confusion, then I'll be sending back my 3rd as it will be replacing it, and hopefully all is well then I can order my 3 arm stand debezel and be on my way.

I'm aware. It doesn't change the fact people go to their Glossy listings, buy, and then receive a Tempered Glass monitor. My point was green-sum is well aware that it's not the same monitor they sold as Glossy a few months ago, and they don't care.

It's also insane that someone would need to buy multiple Tempered Glass monitors, removing the glass from each monitor and then ship them back until you find one with a legit Glossy panel. Simply not worth the time and money.

Not surprised green-sum does not want to sell you yet another Tempered Glass monitor if you're already sending two back.

Hey guys, I'm having trouble connecting one of these to a laptop. I wouldn't have thought that there'd be a problem, but upon plugging it in, the monitor just flashes green then red, then stays in stand-by with no image.
I had bought this cable since it seemed to match, but I read in this thread that hdmi->dvi-d will not work for some reason. My 2 laptops only have (HP dv6) hdmi and vga, and (Samsung ATIV book 9) micro-hdmi and mini-vga. Does this mean that there's no way to connect either of them, with any adapter(s)? This is only a temporary situation, so I would be happy with even a compromised solution like low frame rate or only 1080p, etc., but it seems like such a shame to not be able to use such a nice monitor, even if it's only for a few months.

No possible way to plug it into a laptop that doesn't have a mini display port or dvi input on it.

I asked ipsledmonitors.com this question. I figured, why not ask an American, someone we can understand and is in the business.

Hello, What is the
difference between the QNIX QX2710LED Evolution II (Glossy)
27" 2560X1440 Computer Monitor And the QNIX QX2710LED
Evolution II (Tempered Glass) 27" 2560X1440?

Hi Joshua, The two monitors have identical
panel/specifications aside from one main difference. The
QNIX QX2710LED Evolution II (Tempered Glass) variant adds a
plate of anti-glare tempered glass between the panel and
your view. The QNIX QX2710LED Evolution II (Glossy) has no
tempered glass, nor any matte coating. The Glossy variant is
currently not in production; we are discussing a time-frame
with the manufacturer (QNIX) at the
moment. Thanks,---Bill Heckerson

Bill,

THanks for the quick reply. Does the tempered glass model have
Matte coating?

Josh,
The recent batch has used Matte coated panels. The manufacturer has not been
clear on this specification, hence we are not selling tempered glass QNIX
QX2710s until we can get clarification on their build process.
Thanks,---Bill Heckerson
