post #10921 of 25888
Im really impressed with this screen.
Just got my QX2710LED
$280
Free shipping to NZ
From green-sum.

Overclocks 144hz. 148 it starts missing frames in the LCD test and 150 it comes up unsupported. (tested going up in 10hz steps then started going down by 2hz until it was stable)
Sticking to 120hz tho since BF4 doesnt get enough frames at 2K to justify running the extra hz.


No dead pixels
Slight light bleeding bottom right corner but its hidden by start bar icon.
Picture seems to be off slightly upwards since I can see a black line along the bottom and at the top things get slightly cut off.

Also ordered matt one but got glossy but still better then I expected and very happy,

Most of the auctions go into detail about dead pixels and BLB being normal, so you could conceivably receive a monitor with bad BLB or an anoying pixel defect in the center of your screen and would be SOL. In those cases, I'd rather ship to Cali than Korea.

edit:

Also from ebays buyer protection page:

"If the cost of return shipping isn't covered by the seller according to their return policy, we may decide to pay for return shipping costs in some cases. If we don't pay for the return shipping costs, the buyer is responsible."

I only complained to the seller, didn't open a case, but good to know for others thinking otherwise.

So are you guys buying Pixel perfect or not, whats the general consensus on that?
post #10924 of 25888

Consensus is that it's pretty much a scam. More than likely the sellers charge extra for a "pixel perfect" monitor but don't really check for dead pixels before they ship it. Maybe 5 out of 10 monitors have no dead pixels as it is, so they make extra money just by chance.

And if the monitor does have dead pixels they just offer a refund for the difference of the price of a non-perfect monitor. And people are okay with this b/c it's easier than shipping it back to get a new one.

But hey, I could be wrong.

So I'm pretty bummed. I ordered my monitor on like Tuesday night and it's still in Korea. It hasn't moved at all either in over 24 hours now... What gives?

Well, I got my Matte Qnix QX2710LED the other day. Just got to really test it out last night and today. Panel is near perfect... No back-light bleed that I've noticed. No dead pixels. The bottom center of the bezel (near the Qnix logo) does bow out a little from the panel, but you cannot notice while using, only when inspecting it from the side and it has zero effect on performance.

I'm surprised how good this thing looks and performs. I actually find it's response time to be rather good (I was expecting more ghosting). In fact, I think it performed better on the pixel tests on lagom than my 3ms TN panel did (and it obviously calibrated MUCH better on the rest of the lagom tests due to the PLS panel).

I overclocked it to 120hz no problem. No frame drops. Although, in 120hz, panel uniformity suffers a little. There becomes a bit of gamma shift in the upper left area of the screen, really only noticeable on purple and red screen tests. Blue and green perform well. I'm not noticing any artifacts or anomalies thus far. If I was to do photo work, I'd switch it back to 60Hz mode as it seemed near perfect after slight calibrating using CCC in conjunction with lagom. I will admit, gaming with 120hz and with panel quality such as this, is freaking awesome. Goodbye TN panels.

Panel is well placed into the bezel.

Purchased for $290 shipped from StoreWithStory on ebay. It made it's way from Korea to my house in NJ in less than 24 hours (they shipped it on the 9th, I received it on the 10th via DHL). StorewithStory supposedly does a full test before shipping, offers paid return shipping if DOA, and also a 1 year warranty through them. They did not advertise it as having a volt adapter or US cable, but it came including a US one. I can say I was rather pleased with their service.

This just might be the best $290 I've ever spent.

The stand/enclosure are cheap, but ya know... it sits on the desk just fine.

So, I guess, add me to the club please.

Thanks for the info in the OP - helped me out prior to purchase and also with overclocking.
