I agree with most of that except #4 of no hassle ebay return. Any return is annoying with mail order and they wont take it back for some reasons.
Its really the OC that attracts me and price second. Otherwise I would buy the Asus. I wish they could OC as easy.
I should mention I just built a 4770k 780ti system. So my 32" Samsung 1080p LED TV just doesnt seem right anymore smile.gif

4) Ebay no hassle return so just like store return you can send it back, just wait a bit longer for ebay.

Also they have to take it back regardless, hence the ebay buyer protection, you WILL get your money back and or a new model, these guys don't like negative reviews.

What game are you having issues with? All mine run at whatever refresh rate I set it too. I preferably run Tombraider @ 100fps as it's gorgeous, but have tested it up to 130 fps as well on 130hz.

I usually tweak settings and downsample as much as I possibly can in order to get the best image quality possible @ 60 FPS. And having been spoiled by that image quality, I don't think I can drop it in order to squeeze out more frames. To me 60 is perfect. That's why I was wondering if there was still any benefit to overclocking the monitor if you plan on hitting 60 FPS in most games.

I'm sure 120 feels mind-bogglingly amazing, but not if it comes at the cost of aliasing everywhere frown.gif

True. I guess the squeeky wheel gets the oil on ebay & paypal. (Personally have over 1100 100% feedback). This is where u almost have to buy the perfect pixel version. So u have more agrument for return If u do end up getting more than one bad pixel
5 pixels might bother me....

Welcome to beauty 1440p you need less alias settings due to the immense pixel density, that + you shouldn't need downsampling at this point, remove a few settings and just use antistropic @ 4-8x vs 16x and SMAA off. You'll bee surprised to see hardly any difference. These settings were more for 1080p, I like smooth vs blurred or jagged scenes imo, I just like things to be clear.

I honestly think you should play around lowering and raising settings to see if you can even spot any differences. Granted turning ALL aliasing off you'll see TINY jagged lines in some areas hence why I'm stating you should put a bit of AA or Antistropic. lemme know how it turns out.

Does this look normal to you? Will the black tape fix even work for this mess? I see like yellow blobs in the bottom center of screen: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Straight away dispute on ebay, don't touch a single screw, this is unacceptable.

Just got my QNIX in today.

Switching over from a 5-6 year old Samsung LCD, the black levels are crazy. Perhaps they are too good? Is this something that my eyes will adjust to, because the blacks are pretty intense looking. Using the Samsung ICC profile from the first post.

you think the black leves are that good? are you talking a entire black screen or just blacks in an image? I for one don think the blacks are that special on a all dark screen.

The blacks in images. I had a Samsung Syncmaster T240HD that I bought in like 2007, so maybe my eyes just became really used to really crappy blacks?
