Review of QNIX pixel perfect:
Last month I ordered a crossover blade and regretted it the day after it shipped, I knew it was going to be an awesome monitor however this thread convinced me of the higher fidelity of the PLS panel. My crossover came in five days after the order was placed with the box in perfect condition. After setting it up the monitor booted without a hitch the colours were incredible however it shipped with 7-12 dead pixels in the corner, this alone would not warrant me attempting to send it back to korea however there was atrocious light bleed seen here:
This was tolerable but left me disappointed, I attempted to fix both issues with massaging and taking off the back panel however the screws were so tightly in place I was unable to remove the bezel. I contacted allkillsale and that night he replied eager to help me. I sent him the pictures and without a fuss he agreed to replace the monitor. After quite a few friendly emails that were replied to promptly he agreed to swap my purchase to a QNIX pixel perfect monitor with minimal light bleed. He didn't have them at his shop at the time so he bought a batch to specially accommodate me even after he paid for the return shipping of the monitor. I couldn't be happier with the service that allkillsale provided and I would highly recommend him as a seller, his 100% ebay reputation is the truth and he definitely earned a customer. The monitor will be arriving tonight and I will do a full review when it does as well as a non-technical comparison of the experience of the crossover vs the qnix.
Taking up to posts because I'm a badass,
Monitor arrived in amazing condition, box again not damaged. This time however it arrived in 2 days!!!! from Korea to Canada, import fees were $18 opposed to the previous monitor which was $26.
I opened up the package and was intrigued that they used the exact same packaging style and that it shipped with the same cords. Once I pulled out the monitor I was flabbergasted that the back, stand, buttons,bezel and inputs were the same as my Crossover blade. It is literally identical externally to the blade.
Fired it up and no interference cause in my speakers, displayed 1440p with no configuration required. Colours seem identical to the crossover but as others have said contrast is slightly better making things pop out for the wow factor a more. As said it was pixel perfect, there is light bleed but nothing compared to the blade I received. I am extremely happy with the change the gloss may get annoying but my computer is in a dungeon so it is not a problem as of this moment. The stand does not have enough surface area to properly deal with movement but it looks nice and keeps the monitor straight. I used to use a 32inch tv so the pixel density makes everything smooth so much so that it is indescribable.
Would I buy another monitor from allkillsale knowing that it would be bad and then dealing with it?
Absolutely, I wasn't stressed for a second about the state of these affairs even the extra time it took to receive the monitor made it a better purchase than a monitor sold in NA. Overclocking next, probably tommorow.
PS: monitor shows up as dual dvi which is strange.Edited by Feild Scarecrow - 5/16/13 at 7:23pm
