QNIX/X-star Matte = Added Matte coating to the panel then placed in the bezel the same way. The matte coating reduces reflections.

QNIX/X-star Tempered Glass = A tempered glass plate is placed in front of the panel. Users have reported that both Matte coated and original glossy (un-coated panels) are being placed behind the tempered glass plate, seems a bit random which you will get.. The only way to find out what type of panel is behind the glass is to remove it, which requires disassembling the bezel.

edit:

The reason for confusion. green-sum decided they would start selling the Tempered Glass model to customers who purchase through their "Glossy" listing. In other words, if you bought the Glossy QNIX from green-sum 3 months ago, you would have received a QNIX Glossy. If you buy it today, you will instead receive a tempered glass QNIX. It's not the same, but they figure most users will see that the Tempered Glass is (shiny) and thus assume they got what they paid for. Unless, you're me and have the actually Glossy QNIX that was in stock 3 months ago.

Please include if you're using your video driver to OC or a 3rd party app.

Not really a mix up just multiple sellers acting confused @ what they sell w/ the obvious issue of Gloss being reportedly out on every seller. This is from multiple user input sadly.

I'd love to have JUST gloss. Even tempered gloss is fine. As long as it's not matte lol. The point is to warn or check prior to buying to ensure the user is getting what they're looking for as preference is preference and I'd be upset if I didn't get what I ordered as well. Just lookin out for people thumb.gif

The Gamma is mostly affected. Mine are all @ 96hz currently @ That setting and they look as if they're @ 60hz
Thanks LunaP it worked perfect! Also while I was using CRU I was getting image retention, but using my graphics control panel I get none.

Qnix/Xstar are the same, the difference isn't even the panel, just the name on it. EXACT same Panel underneath. Go w/ whatever sounds cooler.
