No offense, but everything you need to know has been talked about numerous times in this thread. And seeing as how you're asking in the Qnix/X-Star club thread, you are going to be recommended this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Matte-FREE-EXPRESS-X-STAR-DP2710LED-27-2560x1440-Samsung-PLS-Panel-Monitor-/330932578190

The color profiles you need are literally 3 posts above this.

There is a Pixel Perfect option for that same monitor. If you choose to go that route, talk to the seller first. I told him I'd buy perfect pixel only if he could promise me a panel with 0 dead pixels and the smallest amount of BLB possible.

Hehe glad you liked the update. Current workaround for profiles that Color Sustainer cannot read is posted in that thread, as a reply to user "JaylumX". Use it until I incorporate that very workaround into Color Sustainer.

Waiting for some feedback on how well 1.03.2 works until I move on a bit and add this feature, though.

Has anyone ever had a degradation in performance with the Qnix over time?

I've had mine for a little over a month and I came home today to find that mine would not run at 120hz anymore. After some tinkering I realized that it wouldn't even run at 100hz, I just get weird colors and lines whenever It runs at that refresh rate. Does anyone know why it would stop working at 120hz so suddenly?

My glossy Qnix ran for a whole day at 120hz no problem and then started to get the infamous green lines, etc. It's now stable at 110hz max.

Anybody know how to tell the difference between a tempered glass and glossy Qnix?

My main issue is that, as far as I know, games don't necessarily use the profile that you set in windows. I'm not overly concerned with the calibration of the desktop. Someone posted a few pages back about a program that does try to make games use the set icc profile but that it doesn't always work. If I'm forced to be in a situation where sometime it works and sometimes it doesn't, I'd rather just forget all this icc profile nonsense, use NVCP to up the gamma a bit and call it a day.

I use CPKeerper.exe and it locks my profiles in every game I have tested...

Lawson, I just ordered the Spyder4 Elite -- They didn't have the Colormunki on Newegg Premier...

Can you post your profile after calibration? We have very similar panels, it seems.

For sure! I'd be happy to help in anyway possible. Thanks lawson, Riadon and all other for an awesome thread. If I can get rid of this strange yellowish tint, this display will be AWESOME. thumb.gif
