Well like I said I took the glass off... (I hated the reflections and wanted it off anyway) these pictures are AFTER I took the glass off, it's matte now. maybe they're scratches on the matte part or something?

Hey guys.

Quick question. Pickup a Qnix this week from Green-Sum. Great panel. No dead pixel, and very minimal BLB. I've gone through and applied an OC to 96 Hrz, and it seems like everything is gravy, but I'm just wondering if there's a way for me verify the screen is running at 96 hrz. Some type of program or something.

Anyone know of anyway to check this?

Thanks!

Me and my brother bought a Qnix QX2710 each and we are both very pleased with it and got two monitors with minimal BLB and no dead pixels from Storewithstory but the thing is we both get really tired in the eyes of these screens? We have tried both 60, 96 and 120Hz and have tried maxing brightness(on screen and lowering in nvidia cp), could it just be the difference between 24 and 27 inches? I get like dizzy and I even went and checked my eyes and my sight is totally perfect so its not that.. Any suggestions? Could it just take some time to get used to it? We both had 24 inches TN before.

According to most reviews, Qnix doesn't have backlight PWM that can cause eyes discomfort. However, according to some other reviews it has PWM of 160Hz, which is horribly low and can be the source of your troubles.

Holy frak, there's 1200 pages in here now! I don't want to sound like an old fart, but I remember when this thread started. Ah, those heady days of wanton monitor ravaging... I came on to catch up on what people are saying; I guess I can't really go back and read it all, hah!

I was considering the glossy version.. that just means they add some glass in front of the matte version? That's it?

Just got my QNIX from bigclothcraft. Are these horizontal lines backlight bleed or indicative of another problem? They cover the whole first "third" section of the monitor, with the middle and right side being perfect. Would the blacklight bleed do anything or should I try to send it back?
When I apply some pressure and bend it from the back, the lines seem to lessen. Also viewing it from a different angle seems to make the lines go away.

The mere fact that you can apply pressure to the panel and the lines "lessen" is evidence that the lines could be all but eliminated by the BLB fix to relieve pressure. I would try the bezel adjustment first and see if you can fix it then send it back. The angles are just an optical effect of the last top layer of the panel shielding the ripple effect. I had a chat with someone a couple pages back regarding the exact same issue. Unfortunately he never posted back.

Overall anyone with seemingly pressure related issues should attempt the BLB fix before considering an RMA. It is very much worth it to try a simple 30 minute repair before dealing with korean returns or even squaretrade.

Thanks for the quick reply Spartan. I'm going to give the bezel adjustment following the video tutorial at the beginning of this thread and then get back and let you know how it goes. I've had backlight bleed before, but never in this way. Thanks!
