Ah ok, thanks that worked. But @96Hz it is better but the up-right side is still noticable darker than the left side. Should I use the 120 Hz pixel clock settings for the 96 Hz?

I also do a lot of web development, having a monitor like this would be good idea for me for color accuracy, but I'm just trying to decide on the 120hz if it's worth it or not. If it's not worth it, I'll just grab a PP from another person, it seems extremcastle is having issues shipping
Well, put it this way; your ping has more of an effect on your input lag than running a Qnix at 120hz.

If you don't mind hacking your drivers (there's a guide in the first post), go for a Qnix, from just about any seller except red-cap (red-cap has ignored the "law" before and outright screwed his customers in the past, denying refunds and returns for obvious product defects). Accessorieswhole has, in the thousands of posts i've read, generally been well-received, except for a spate of problems in the past with some CrossOver monitors; but that was a manufacturing issue, of which she has no control over. Again, I think PP is stupid, but if it makes you feel better, go for it (and do not buy from red-cap). The majority of buyers, including yours truly, have received monitors without pixel defects even without "pixel perfect".

No you should not need any timings at 96hz...just add 96 hz in your profile and save it...for 120hz optimized timings bring you pixel clock nearer to the 450mhz pixel clock limit which will give you a stronger signal at 120hz

Looks like your panel doesn't have as much room for overclocking as other panels do. Try it, and if it makes a difference, keep the LCD reduced settings.

Used those timings for 96 Hz and it did improve it a bit smile.gif. But I am on ''manual'' settings in CRU, not on ''LCD Reduced settings". Should I select LCD Reduced Settings instead of manual?

You can use what ever works best for you thumb.gif

Yes it's an active one: Dell Bizlink Display Port to Dual Link DVI - Claims to support up to 2560x1600.

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

I've got 2 HP LP2065 1600x1200 20" monitors that I'm going to put either side of the Qnix and hope to run these off 2 external USB to VGA adapters.

I think so. I'll have a play. I was sitting very close and when my VESA mounts arrive I'll have it a t a more reasonable distance. Like I said, I've got too used to looking at a 9.7" Retina resolution display on a Chinese tablet and a 5.4" 1080P AMOLED display on my Galaxy Note 3, so I guess I was a little disappointed with the text on the Qnix.

Nice catch! That'll do nicely. I never recommend them, as the adapters are notoriously finicky. But if you need them, you need them, and when they do work, they work well. You can even overclock them smile.gif Not as far as real video cards, but still, it's possible.

Haha, yeah, I've got a Nexus 5 and 7, and they both have clearer text. Still, mounting it farther away has the odd result of the text being slightly too small frown.gif I must be getting old.

Hey Dr Steve I am sorry that you had a delay in shipping!.. however i am glad that you received a pixel perfect monitor from excellentcastle!...you are the third member in the last 24 hours that has received a perfect pixel monitor from excellentcastle!
