post #14921 of 25943
Just as an FYI, I have a sweet color meter now and have a glossy Qnix. I am more than happy to create profiles at 96, 100, 110, 120hz for fellow glossy freaks -- Happy to help! biggrin.gif

Received my Qnix yesterday i couldn't be happier

I took lawson67's advise and got a ultimate pixel perfect from excellentcastle, I made an offer they countered i accepted, eBay also gave me a 10% off code that brought the price down to £210, I asked for it to be marked as £50 which they did.
my custom fee in the uk was £16.

It did take 8 days to arrive but it has no dead/stuck pixels, a bit of blb at the top that i fixed last night (again taking lawson67's advice) by straitening the frame.

Over clocked to 120hz no problem (haven't tried to go higher)

I also got the monoprice stand for £11

So that's £237 all in all for a perfect 1440p 120hz monitor with a new stand

Thanks lawson67

My only problem now is i think i need another 780 to run things at 120fps with high setting

Sell your 780 and just get a single 780 Ti OC -- I have the Gigabyte Tricooler 780 Ti OC GHz Edition and it ROCKS this monitor on games thumb.gif

Hey jy0un9 i am Happy that you are pleased with your new pixel perfect from excellentcastle!.. I am also i am happy that you took the time to to straighten your frame and fix your BLB!.. and what a sense of an achievement you get that is when you fire back up the monitor and see all that BLB gone!.. and you know that you have got an A+ grade pixel perfect panel that would normally cost you up to around £800 for only a little over £200 with a beautiful looking PLS screen running at 120hz!....and also i have to say what a result on the income tax!...well done with that only £16 result mate!....there's only one other thing left to say to you!..and that is welcome to the club thumb.gif

Long Live GLOSSY SCREEN! ... It amazes me how diverse the personal preferences OR acceptance of a Matte screen is among high resolution monitor aficionados these days ... 1440/120Hz Matte, really? rolleyes.gif
Can you imagine having an AG coating on your 20" Sony/NEC CRT back in the day? I've disliked Matte finishes ever since ...
AND [THIS] fine article explains why wink.gif

I certainly don't want to drag up the Glossy vs Matte preference debate here redface.gif ...
BUT with the recent lack of availability of the QX2710 in a "Glossy" for $290-$350 range ... I'm curious if the recent wide acceptance of the QX2710 in Matte finish is because maybe the QNIX is now using what is a newer developed semi-gloss Matte like the Samsung 850D pictured below, which according to the article is only in the 15%-18% "Haze" range as opposed to a typical Matte finish at 24%-28% ... and for reference a typical Glossy is in the 8-10% "haze" range (see 2nd pic).

Better yet does anyone have any pics with the QX2710 Matte in a side by side comparison like below?
Could even be side by side with a glossy laptop like referenced in the article. I don't want to have to pay the price premium for a Glossy panel if in fact the QX2710's Matte finish is more like the new semi-gloss Matte pictured below which I may have to settle for because of $$$ mad.gif

850D semi-gloss Matte vs typical Matte finish ...


And the glaring OR non-glaring difference when the AG (Matte) coating is removed ...
Referred from this OCN Artisan ... [HERE]




My apologies if this question has already been asked/answered in This thread. I'm slowly working my way through the entire thread, and this is one active thread w/5-6 new pages every day thumb.gif

Hey everyone I've owned my QNIX and it is my best purchase I've made for my setup. I overclocked it to 110 hz because at 120 hz I get artifacts. I tried using my dual link that came with the monitor and the dual link that came with my old ASUS 144 hz monitor and same thing. I use Custom Resolution Tool (CRT) so I can use the refresh rate in games, any way that I could somehow get 120 hz out of my monitor? Maybe in the settings or a better cable? Any thoughts are appreciated! Thanks!

Edit: I love the glossy screen... hate matte. For the guys above me tongue.gifthumb.gif

Are you using optimized timings for your 120hz profile?..If not Try using theses timings as pictured below in CRU for your 120hz...if you just set a 120hz refresh rate in CRU without using optimized timings you will most likely be hitting a pixel clock of 480mhz or more...the nearer you can get to the 450mhz pixel clock limit the better signal you will get and therefore the better chance you will have at hitting 120hz with NO artefacts..my timings seem to work for most give them ago..also may i ask are you using Nvidia or AMD?
