Where are your ICC profiles located? I here the good feedback, when I get my monitor I'd like to have them at the ready.

On the last two pages of this thread at least and you can also search my old posts. There's not too many of them. But I'll quote myself here for you, just learn to use the search in the future smile.gif

There's also an older version available in some of my older posts, but the updated version should be way better. Feel free to try the old one too though, but pay attention to your grays and see how they looks since they are a bit greenish in my older profile which is fixed in the updated version.

I find it a bit odd that so many people find my profile much better than the ones on the front page even thought there's a lot of them available. I wonder what devices and softwares were used with them and if they make such a big difference. I wish my profile would be added to the front page too, but it seems like it's not being updated anymore. I even sent a PM to him frown.gif

Thanks! That makes it a lot easier to access. What gamma are you using with this? Can you make a glossy 120hz profile?

That is correct. I've never done it, can't really comment.

thanks!

Stige has comparison photos with the glass on and off, about 7 pages back or if you look in the gallery, he can also post it.

As for the cable the one it comes with is fine, but if you're buying or have a separate cable make sure its rated in the 9gb range. The GPU doesn't matter as long as it's supported.

Can anyone confirm this?

Thanks in advance biggrin.gif

Dust can only get in when they initially put the glass on. None of mine have it. The glass as mentioned above adds somewhat of a small clarity offset as well as brightness but probably by about 1% for clarity and you can see the difference in contract. Combine matte + the glass + Gloss and you've got a good 3-5% difference from Gloss at least.

Is it really noticable? No, unless you have them side by side for comparison.

If you got the tempered glass it also might feel like plastic when you touch it, atleast mine did even though it was clearly glass when I removed it.

Hope this helps a little bit.

Adding on to this for the initial question, you CAN tell the difference between Gloss underneath and Matte. If Matte is underneath you will not see deep blacks when the monitor is off. Such as I have my tempered next to mine I will see a MUCH brighter black backround on the tempered glass when the monitor is off as far as reflections go.

There a few different ones on eBay any particular brand is AH-IPS is better.
I would be building a new PC with a R9 280X and I5.

My old monitor was a gateway 23 1200 60hz.
I never notice any bad lag.

I will mainly play RPG/ PVP

Thanks.

PLS is newer so the quality is a bit better.

I was hopping to buy a 2nd Qnix but I guess i'll be waiting till the holiday season is over. Hopefully it will go back down.

From the sounds of it they're running out of stock, as they've been telling me they've been waiting for more production.

Currently Regular Gloss is also in production.

Stige posted screenshots a while back basically after removing the faceplate you need a sharp/thin razor to remove the tape holding the glass down so that you don't dmg the glass/screen. Stige can fill you in.

It's 2.2 gamma, 120 cd/m2 brightness, 6500k white level and 12 clicks brightness from the minimum. And no I can't calibrate a glossy monitor because I don't have one. Mine is matta and doesn't really run too well @ 120hz and thus I am not really bothered of doing one right now. It runs decently @ 117hz though so I might do calibration in that rate at some point, but I have the device in it's own box right now and I can't be bothered to fix one now. I'll need to get myself a 110hz profile at some point so I guess that's when I'll do a 120hz (or 117hz) version too.

why u guys want to remove the glass? since its matte underneath, just order a matte will do no?

even if for debezel, a pure matte/glossy without the glass is easier right? confused
