[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 1185

post #11841 of 25887
So are these the best 1440p to get now? My Dell U2711 is having some problem and might get it replaced. My friend bough a Yamakasi Catleap IPS 2 year ago and the back light in one side died after 6 months and the stand was very flimsy. How reliable are these PLS screen?

Best? Doubtful. With these you are clearly taking a chance. The biggest advantage to these are the price and the fact that most of them are easily overclockable to at least 96hz and due to the lack of a scaler have very little input lag. Keep in mind, many of them do not retain perfect image quality when overclocked, many panels have gamma inconsistency when doing so (as in variances at different areas of the panel). Also, the enclosures/stands are pretty flimsy. However, if you're placing it on a desk, it does hold the thing up. I admit the enclosure is cheap, but it doesn't look horrible, I generally expected worse.

For the money though, I fail to find a better gaming monitor or color reproduction. They really do have great image quality, especially at default 60hz, but so will the more expensive IPS panel monitors.

Overclocking is not really something i am going after. When i am comparing i know U2711 will have better build quality but these PLS monitors compare to other Koren monitors? IPS vs PLS? Also Glossy vs Matte?

I agree these things are beautiful. I have the tempered glass version and BF4 looks so nice. Color looks great. Great purchase. Just hoping it lasts. I guess we will find out.

I forgot the answer to this question.

If I got the normal XSTAR DVI version, but used a DVI to Displayport Adapter, would it overclock?

XSTAR from Dreamseller for $299 http://www.ebay.com/itm/330932578190?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649

QNIX from Storewithstory for $309.90 http://www.ebay.com/itm/321237616203?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649

QNIX from Greensum for $319.90 http://www.ebay.com/itm/121117252582?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649

Would any of you pick one of these over the other, or do you guys have another suggestion, or should I just go with the cheapest one, the XSTAR from Dreamseller? From what I've read it sounds like buying pixel perfect is a waste of money. I was also considering buying from ipsledmonitors, but that's going to add at least another 60 bucks after shipping and theirs being slightly more expensive.

Thanks all for the help!

Hey I got a Pixel perfect from Storewithstory for $325 (ebay best offer he accepted). Shipping was fast but more importantly the monitor was in great shape. I did some basic pixel tests and was unable to find a dead or stuck pixel. There a very very small amount of BLB in the lower left corner but honestly unless the screen is pitch black you cant see it. I am very happy with my set up, chugging along at 115hz all day long, no issues. Also, for what its worth this is my first attempt at overclocking a monitor so I am very pleased. I got the Matte finish version, it looks killer.

I did go ahead and slap a Dell stand on it, much better than the stock monstrosity

Other korean monitors are starting to have tolerable build qualities, compared to this one. These are still some of the cheapest options, however. PLS > IPS (for the most part. Newer versions of IPS are better; most of the time you wont see them on korean monitors). Glossy if living in cave/basement, matte if you have any source of natural light in a room. The matte on these is more semi-glossy than your traditional matte. Glossy are terrible at reflecting ambient light, imo.
