I have one question though and it's the quality of the movies. I feel like it could look better? I know there isn't any 1440p content except Timescape; only thing I found online. I had my bluray drive installed and I had to download a trial program of CyberLink PowerDVD 13, because it was the only way to view my bluray movies. I popped in Game of Thrones and it looked good, viewing Netflix looked good, and downloaded a movie, and it looked good; but not amazing like my games. Is this because it's all HD/1080p content that is being upscaled to 1440p? Or should I try to calibrate my monitor?


If your downloading torrents it's because they are 700mb sizes and not really even 1080p or even 720p, they are (I'm drawing a blank on the correct term) repacks? If you set your player to original resolution you will notice how small they are. Basically it's like 800x400 resolution stretched to fit your screen. If you want true 1080p downloads they are like 35gig, 720p are around 15gig, so yeah, pretty decent quality really for 700mb files, save the big downloads for good movies is my advice smile.gif

It's the QNIX with multiple input ports. I read in the FAQ this not OC'able - this makes me very sad as I'm looking for high refresh rates (120hz if possible but I'll settle for lower) HOWEVER I also need this monitor to work with my PS3 system (hey if Tekken was on PC I wouldn't need it) which is currently connected to a TV which I'll be selling in order to afford this monitor. I really need that extra HDMI port for it but I also really want high refresh rates for the PC (the main reason I'm in the market in the first place). Is there absolutely no way to OC the multi input monitor I linked above? Any and all advice and comments welcome. Thanks in advance.
No one has found a way to overclock the multi input monitors.

I feared such a response. With that said, if I go for the single-input overclocklable version, would anybody have any advice or recommendations on a HDMI to DVI converter? I'll still play the occasional fighting game which requires I have a little frame rate lag as possible. Also, a connector that can be easily switched back and forth from PC to PS3 would be fantastic. Thanks again

The oveclockable ones WILL not work with your PS3 at all. It doesn't matter what converter that you use. Don't waste your money if that's what you need it for.

What a shame. Do you think the multi-input one is even worth it then? I understand these models' main edge and merit of purchase is their ability to OC beyond 60hz.

Credit goes to the wonderful forum member airisom2 , who created this guide they did a nice job walking you through setting you up with the smooth video project.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1385468/svp-smooth-video-project-discussion-thread

I have smooth motion interpolation on my LED tv, but it's @ 1080p. Seeing it on a 1440p monitor a foot or so from your face is awesome.

I really suggest you gents/ladies take the time to set this up and watch a blu-ray movie or two. and if you find you love it like I do, please throw him some rep, he deserves it.

Thank you for bringing this up.
This actually brought tears to my eyes!

I had to unpatch the driver to make it work.

Can anyone tell me or look into the manual if this monitor supports VBLANK? Its a bit of an older technology that older screens had, but now AMD is going to use it with their upcoming FreeSync. As I dont want to waste money on G-Sync it would be nice if I were able to use this free alternative, especially since at 1440p a variable Framerate might be quite useful.

Im also curious about the reaction time and input lag. The FAQ said that its okay for games like LoL or GW2, but is it really that bad? I would never call myself an professional but I am not an casual gamer either, do you think it will hinder my experience in games like Counterstrike? I just wonder cause I never payed attention to reaction times before, and who knows on what reaction time Ive been playing until now, but I havent had any problem.

I have been away for some months: is there any news about monitors?
Is out there any successor to QNIX QN2710 or something like it?
I would like a 1440p monitor capable of at least 96Hz using Display Port as input and without the needing of driver hacking, third-part software and so on.

So I just had to pay DHL £18, is that it now for import charges or should I expect more?
post #12130 of 25911
Just received my Qnix Evolution from 2560x1440monitor.com, very fast delivery to the uk indeed and i only had to pay £18 total in vat and handling fees, it was shipped with dhl express. Anyway i managed to overclock this thing to 96hz stable smile.gif no need for more than that tbh, no back light bleed at all and no dead pixels but there is a small gap at the front of the bezzle were the screen ends at the bottom, no biggie though as the price i paid for it wipes all doubt from my mind, cant get over how awesome this monitor is, took some pics comparing it to my 120hz lg monitor and the colour difference is crazy. I have now loaded a few ICC profiles in to the color management in windows 7 and WOW the Samsung s27a850d v5 and Asus pb278q v3 make it look even better smile.gif

Gaming on this thing is a joy also but i think im going to have to switch from my 2gb 770 lightning to a 780ti and then go sli when i can afford it or i may just hang on for nvidia Maxwell series of graphics cards and get a 880 with hopefully at least 4-6gb of ram. I have also purchased a visa 100x100 stand for the monitor as the 1 that came with it kinda sucked, think its called ''Ergotron Neo-Flex LCD LED Adjustable Tilt Monitor Display Desk Stand'' and can be purchased from eBay and Amazon in the UK, very good quality stand and adjusts quite high up and all the way back down to the desk

Sorry about the crappy picture quality and please ignore the spaghetti junction smile.gif







Blown away with the monitor, great value for money, i insist everyone buy 1 who hasn't already, just try and get it shipped with dhl instead of fed ex as i hear they rape your wallet in fees and ask the seller you buy it from to put the price of the item at $100 or the equivalent in £
