just registered to give you my feedback.
Thank you all for the tons of information i got here.

The Shipping:
On dec the 5th afternoon i ordered a QNIX QX2710 [Matte] [NOT perfect pixel, because you guys convinced me its just a scam] from ebay-seller accessorieswhole an d it arrived on dec 10th in the morning.
Thats really fast for shipping from korea to germany. thumbs up.

The Good:
I had no defect pixels, yay
the picture is just amazing, never had better
I could overclock to 120 hz no problem. But the colors get a little worse which shouldnt bother any gamer.

The Bad:
The stand is crap, everyone knows that. I dont mind it.
the blue LED is to bright for my taste, but thats fixable.
Unfortunately i had backlight bleeding, fortunately it was fixable.

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

Interesting. The tape mod did nothing for my BLB. Although the BLB is not visible at normal lightings, it somewhat visible when watching very dark scenes, in the dark.
So exactly what frame did you bend? The metal backplate of the panel? Or the metal thingies that hook onto the bezel and are screwed into the sides of the panel?

So exactly what frame did you bend? The metal backplate of the panel? Or the metal thingies that hook onto the bezel and are screwed into the sides of the panel?

When i took of that metal frame, that was clipped to the panel and put it on the table i noticed it was not flat at all. It wobbled and the insides, where the tape was applied later on where not flat. It was just not looking right and in my theory it was that uneaveness that caused the bleeding at bottton left+right and top left.
So it took me about half an hour of bending. The frame was flat in the table then. Still not 100% geometrical correct but MUCH better. I might open it up again to see if i can eliminate that very last of bleeding.
But now i only see it on a black screen when focussing at that area.

So I am considering the Qnix QX2710, hows the motion blur on this monitor in FPS games like BF4 ? I would like the bigger screen size and higher resolution of the Qnix but the native 120hz and 144hz monitors it seem have an edge is FPS gaming. Any thought on this ? I guess the caveat is the motion blur may change when you OC the monitor to 110-120hz.

I am coming from an old Dell 2407wfp 1920x1200 @ 60HZ.

Thanks

It will be roughly half of what you have now aka better by 50%, and 1/4 worse than a 144hz tn panel I believe.

I was finally able to test bf4 with my ti classified. 96Hz looks unreal in game! Very pleased.

Thanks, So where are you guys currently ordering your Qnix monitors from. New Egg has a sale on the "Pixel perfect" monitor for $372 although the warranty isn't the best:

Of course I want to make sure I get the version of the QX270 that is supposed to OC.

Return for refund within: 30 days
Return for replacement within: 90 days

It's hard to get used to it, everything looks so nice, kinda dizzy lol

Have you tried the last profile that was posted here a few days ago? Maybe try bumping it down to 96hz? QNIXQX2710-96hz-updated.zip 2k .zip file
