post #11591 of 25891
I just picked up two QX2710s and I have to say I'm very impressed coming from a 24" tn panel. I have one running at 120hz with no issues by simply creating a custom profile in Nvidia control panel.

I just purchased an X rite i1 Display pro and I have no idea what setting to select in regards to ccfl, wide gamut ccfl, white led and rgb led, some input would be greatly appreciated. I'm pretty sure it's a noob question but my knowledge on monitors is no where near that of PCs.

And I still have over 3 weeks more to try it out and return for any reason I want. I can still change my mind and get a QNIX (although after a weekend with the ASUS, I doubt that will happen).

I feel you! I hope I don't regret buying the QX2710. It sucks buying something and having to gamble on a brand new monitor. And then the hassle of trying to return something to South Korea! eek.gif For my protection I did purchase the Square Trade warranty, don't know if paying the extra $50 is even worth it.

I feel like exchanging a couple emails is well worth saving $218.

While the stand is wobbly, so are plenty of other monitors. Bezel is fine, backlight bleed is fine and fixable if not fine, pixels are a risk on any monitor - difference here being your getting a monitor from Korea and not a warehouse in your home nation.

So for $200 less I have a little more hassle if I need to return it and no formal warrenty. Ill take that deal every time.

I guess I am different. I think it is worth $200 for an A or A+ panel, warranty, solid very adjustable pivot stand, no risk of bad pixels (for 30 days I can return for any reason and then standard warranty afterwards) etc etc. .....However, it was not an easy decision. I debated and reaearched for days and I entirely understand why someone would choose these panels.

WOW! What an amazing monitor. Got it working no problem and it was set to 120 Hz right away without any noticeable problems.

One question though, is there anything else I need to do to fix the darkness in the colors? And should I have a color profile or anything?

You can just adjust the gamma. For me on catalyst control center I do 1.35 gamma for 110hz and 1.25 gamma for 96hz passes all gamma tests. As far as colors they look great to me.
