post #14801 of 25888
After spending the last few hours searching for flaws on my new monitor, I finally found one.

It's a darkened yellowish spot on the right side of the panel. It's barely noticeable but it ticks me off lol. Is there any way to fix this?

770 SLi wouldnt't beat CF 290 in no way. The 770 is probably the worst bang for the buck at the moment. The 770 performs similarly to the R9 280X, which is a significant step backwards of the R9 290. I'd suggest you having a look at the specs of the 770 and the R9 290!

You'd probably the best off by buying two R9 290's: either Sapphire or Gigabyte.

No, 4k is not a 25560x1440 monitor. This is a QHD monitor (or 1440p monitor). A common resolution of 4K is 3840x2160.

Not sure what you are trying to say... I stated the qnix is a 2560x1440 monitor (1440p).....

I guess I misunderstood your post. I thought you were trying to say virtual 4k is the same as 1440p.
post #14807 of 25888
Hello, first time posting here but have been reading though this thread from time to time. My current 1200p TN that I have had for over 4 years is nearing the end of it's life and am noticing flickering artifact lines after being on for more then 6 hours and have to power it down for 10-20 minutes then everything returns to normal. Also has an annoying power on issue where I have to wait a few minutes with a blank screen and artifacts but everything is fine when turn it off then on again. In short, it's time for something new

I am just so torn over the decision of getting one of these monitors or going with something like the Yamakasi DS270 or even going to 1600P with the Yamakasi Sparta 301. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-YAMAKASI-301-SPARTA-30-S-IPS-2560x1600-DVI-D-PC-Computer-Monitor-/141161911922?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20dde7d672 I am not really finding much information about the 301 but I hear it is similar to the older 300 model and have heard mixed feelings about that one with IPS glow being one of the biggest.

I know about the side affects with the overclocking when it comes to gamma shift and my questions would be how is PLS different from the Sparta 301's S-IPS, Input lag or the DS270 AH-IPS, the benefits of Tempered glass over matte but I remember somewhere that there could be a glossy screen under the glass but not sure if that has been confirmed or denied.

Any help you all can give me on this would be great. Just so torn. I have been always been drawn more to higher res but the old CRT game player in me has me drawn to these monitors. I would be very happy just to get this to 96Hz

That looks like a stain/mark on one of the diffuser layers and if it that small i would not mess with it..If you want to get to the diffuser layers you will need to strip the monitor down and remove the metal frame that the panel sits in which not a hard job really if you take your time i have a few post explaining how to strip down the monitor to fix BLB by straightening the metal frame which you will have to remove to get to the diffuser layers...

However be warned messing with the diffuser layers you can permanently mark them!.. with your just your finger marks or if you attempt to wipe one with a cloth trying to remove a stain or a mark that you can see...you can also mark them or make the mark/stain you already have look worse...also dust or a hair could fall in between the layers while you are attempting to inspect/remove the original mark/stain thus creating more problems...these layer are placed into the monitor in the factory in a dust free environment and i would not advise messing with your diffuser layers or attempting clean a mark/stain from one unless absolutely necessary!.

However it can be done because i have successfully done do so in the past...But in this case i would advise to leave it alone and live with it or contact the seller if you have just received your monitor and you feel you can not live with it!.. you should take a photo and show it to the seller and ask him to replace the monitor!.. and you could also consider opening a case with Ebay...however if it is that small and you do not have very bad BLB meaning you would not have to strip the metal frame from the monitor in the first place i would personally live with it..

Having said all of this and if you DO decide you want to keep this monitor you should still show the seller this picture and tell him you want a replacement...this will be the very last thing that he would want to do and i feel sure he will offer you some cash back!...i hope this helps thumb.gif

The listing is complete and utter BS. 120hz? Virtual 4k? Multi input? Red-cap? Alarm bells are ringing. AVOID THIS MONITOR AT ALL COSTS. It's nothing more than your typical multi input Qnix from the seller with the worst reputation on overclock.net.

The only interesting thing about that listing is that it is said to be an AH-VA/A-HVA panel... Interesting.

1. The older 30" panels are still using CCFL backlighting. They introduce two problems. The first is that they run hot, power hungry and throwing off a lot of heat. The second is that they are wide gamut monitors, giving widely oversaturated colours. I would avoid them as they are older, inferior technology and generally not suited to gamers.

Convening glossy, most panels are no longer glossy, even the glossy panels are just a piece of glossy glass on top of a mate panel.

The ds270 doesnt overclock, so if you want to overclock you'll need a qnix or xstar.

FYI If your are thinking of buying a true Glossy as opposed to tempered glass which is glass over the top of a matte screen and have been considering an overclockable Qnix here is a link to one..however they are considerably more than matte screen models or tempered glass,

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Pixel-Perfect-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-27-2560x1440-Glossy-PC-Monitor-/330938393993?pt=UK_Computing_ComputerComponents_Monitors&hash=item4d0d772589

Also is the Monex M27QSM which is also according to NCX is a true Glossy monitor and shares the same PLS panel as the Qnix!...itis cheap and has better build quality then the Qnix but it does NOT overclock...however i believe if you could source a Qnix PCB Board i feel sure it would overclock and you would have yourself a cheap true glossy overclockable monitor thumb.gif

Here is NCX Unfinished review of the Monex M27QSM
