The Fix:
As mentioned i had an noticable amount of backlight bleeding that was to much for me.
I did the electric tape mod like descibed before in the forums here. there is good guide on youtube. its totally doable and not hard at all.
I think what really helped was bending the metal frame until it was straight an flat on my table. just be gentle to that frame it bends easily. also be gentle to all the clips.

After i reassembled the monitor the backlight bleed was gone. I mean really faint so you could only see it if you turned the brightnes all up and want to see it.
overall im really happy with the result. didn't expect the outcome to be that good.

i also dimmed the power LED. i could have soldered in a resistor, but i was lazy a just took a black marker wink.gif

Overall i dont regret buying the monitor an i would do it again.
Just be ready to to get a monitor with flaws. Keep in mind the panel you get was was in a batch that didn't pass Quality Check. which still means it CAN be flawless

cheers

Thanks for your post, do you mind providing a link to the youtube video you used for the tape mod?

Yeah.... I paid 360 on a monitor so I thought its the same price for a guaranteed 120hz pixel perfect. And possibly glossy without tempered glass.

Just wanted to say I got my Qnix 27in Evoluation II monitor in today from Bizaroo on Amazon I was able to easily overclock it to 120Hz not a single dead pixel and almost no backlight bleed I have one very tiny bleed on the bottom right corner of the screen but you can barely see it when the screen is completely black.

Hey guys. I stumbled across these monitors a few days ago, and I was just wondering about one of the Qinx monitors in comparison to one or two 23" Dell Ultrasharp 1080p monitors. Getting a 27" seems like a more practical alternative, and it's cheaper than getting two Dells. So getting a 27" and using my current 23" 1080p monitor as a secondary seems like a nice option right now, and I'm sure you all think the same, right? tongue.gif

Is it the really nice glossy version without tempered glass?

99.9% sure its gloss w/ Tempered glass over it. As only a select few carry solid gloss. You have to message the seller prior so they know.
