I purchased mine from StoreWithStory (http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Matte-27-Slim-Qnix-QX2710-Evolution-II-LED-PLS-2560x1440-QHD-Monitor-DVI-D-/321237616203?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4acb41064b)
I received mine quick and they have the best offer option. Shipping was super fast and the monitor is flawless... I don't know how much worth it has, but they state they include 1 year warranty and test them all before shipping (which I believe they actually do). Also, free shipping back to them if DOA. It took a few days for them to process order/test it, but once it was shipped, I received it the next day... Overnight shipping from Korea is pretty impressive.

Ahh okay I picked the one I did, because it offered an outlet adapter for the US to use, unless StoreWithStory offers one as well? And did you purchase the Square Trade? I figured 1 year with the monitor itself is fine. And Drumz have you tried watching movies in regards to my first question? Thanks man

1- I know it'll output 1440p but how well will this scale with movies? I believe I watch movies just as much as I game; Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, and I have in my shopping cart on Amazon a bluray internal drive to watch my blurays and dvds. Will I get the black border around my monitor so it'll be native to 1080p or will it get upscaled to 1440p? Will this apply to some pc games that will not be able to do 1440p?

2- I also have in my cart on Amazon a Nvidia GTX 780 ACX Cooler, so I've read I shouldn't have a problem maxing most games on 1440p correct? I'll probably add another 780 a year from now...lol

I was thinking about buying this from Amazon but it's at $349 and for a Pixel Perfect it's at $379. I've seen it cheaper on eBay. How is this seller?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-27-2560x1440-WQHD-PLS-Computer-Monitor-Matte-/121117252582?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c33269be6

Thanks again guys in advance!

Netflix and online videos scale to 1440p and do it very well, looks just as good as my 1080p TV. With MadVR, downloaded videos look slightly better than native 1080p IMHO, as MadVR does a fantastic job up-scaling and takes advantage of higher refresh rates by generating extra frames.

A GTX 780 is plenty. You'll find you don't need 4x MSAA, light SMAA is fine at 1440p.

I don't know about him now, but green-sum has been around since the beginning.

The one from StoreWithStory included a US power cable, no adapter necessary. Besides, all you need in the event it comes with Korea plug is an extra PC power supply cable to hook to the power brick of the AC adapter in place of the other one. It uses standard 3-pin cables same as the power supply.

I generally do not watch movies on my computer, but so long as you stick with a refresh rate that is similar (a multiple, divisible, etc) to that of the original movie (most commonly 24 fps), you should be good. This is why 96 and 120 are popular choices.

Sorry didn't see question about SquareTrade... No I did not, I saw that they included their own 1 year warranty and that was enough for me. SquareTrade is great for peace of mind for a few years if you want to spend the extra money.

Yes, you can use any 100mm VESA mount on these monitors.

I have been trying out a lot of different profiles, On this panel, the NEC PA271w_fullv4 seems to tone down the gamma and brightness enough to read without color fade. It really depends on what I am running, 120hz seems to lose some gamma for me so I go with a totally different icc.

Thanks guys for all the help! Appreciate the fast replies I've gotten! Also Drum I went ahead and ordered the Qnix from the buyer you linked me; hoping no dead pixels and minor backlight bleed smile.gif

Hi sorry for the noob questions but if anyone can please help. I need to buy a cheap GPU to test my monitors, will these work with DVI-I?

1.
In the eBay graphics that they have, it has a X for DVI-I and says will only work with DVI-D.
Can anyone please confirm if it works with DVI-I or only DVI-D?

2.
It also says will not work with laptops. If I find a laptop with a dedicated GPU (eg. gt650m, or anything not integrated HD) will it work as well?

3.
If you use a VGA to DVI conversion adapter, will it still display properly?

4.
If I'm using dual monitors, one for gaming and one for web browsing beside it, should I overclock both to the same speeds?
Or should I just overclock the gaming one and leave the other one? Will this damage my GPU or monitor in any way being different HZ speeds?

At last ive just received my qnix DP2710 matte from assessorieswhole and its superb apart from the stand which im not to worried about as im gonna look into getting a new one. Theres zero dead pixels from what ive noticed up to now and blb is minimal although I use a youtube vid to test the black screen and dead pixels because when I went to page 1 on here I couldn't open the links from some reason but I will check tomorrow again. I did notice I got really low frames in cod on max settings even one nfs rivals which is capped at 30 fps it was unplayable so looks like im gonna need a new card. So until then there isnt any point in oc it because I dont have the raw power to do so. Anyone recommend a new game I can try at 1440p that will make me drool? Lol overall I am really pleased with the monitor and anybody looking into them should just bite the bullet because chances are you'll be happy and if not you can always return but for £213 + vat its as good as a high quality display once you get the mount sorted. Any questions please ask I'll upload some photos soon as and I cant wait to oc this thing smile.gif

Backlight bleeding is minimal, less then my last IPS screen. I get artifacts and green lines on 120hz, but no big deal from someone who's been gaming at 60hz.

Overall, highly recommended as long as it lasts. Very happy.

You can definitely hit 120Hz solid with some minor adjustments. Try lowering your overall pixel to 2659 and lines to 1445 and see if that helps.
