Hello, thank you for your purchase.

This message regards to the purchase you made for the monitor.
We have been having many trouble going through the monitor for Quality check due to so many orders.
I have returned many monitors to the manufacturer and will be getting restocked tomorrow. Your time waiting for this delay is very much appreciated.

I hope you can kindly understand that we are trying our best to serve best customer service as well as the best quality product.

The shipment will be made right away from tomorrow in order. We have entered the tracking number for your purchase, to keep the transactions in order received. This has not been shipped out yet.

If you’d like to cancel the transaction, we will do that for you right away!
I am truly sorry about the late update of this transaction.
Thank you so much.

Yours sincerely

I guess that explains why FedEx has no record of the tracking number he sent me for the one I ordered this weekend.

Now I'm wondering if I should cancel it and grab a True10 or one of the excellentcastle ones instead.

I am starting to get a little more clarity on the whole glossy thing. According to NCX, the cheaper glossy are glass over either a matte or glossy panel. This does cause the blacks to become grayish looking, I have spoken with him for a while and it seems the true glossy panels are the ones that are $600 to $700 range. I always suspected the cheaper glossy to be tempered glass over the panel and just sold as glossy.

I guess that would explain why I have not heard back from him when I ordered almost 2 days ago...

Watagump, what other forum were you referring to?

Hi everyone.

Just wanted to share my initial thoughts on the QNIX, which I received last Saturday.

Few information beforehand:
Purchased from green-sum seller on eBay for $309. Matte, free delivery. Purchased and paid for 4th of March, shipped out on 6th, failed delivery on 7th (wow!). I picked it up from depot at 8th.
The box was wrapped in cardboard. The package didn't have any damage.

One small bad thing- I'm in Oz, but the supplied adapter had European plug and US adapter.

Setup was straightforward and had no issues whatsoever. After a quick inspection I found one stuck green pixel in the bottom left quarter near the bottom edge. It's barely noticeable. No excessive backlight bleeding. I did not make any closer inspection... I couldn't resist just enjoying the screen. I started up various games and 1080p movies. I'm very happy with the screen so far. The first time I saw my desktop in 1440p it blew my mind.

Moving on I tried quick overclocking in Nvidia Control Panel. 96Hz? No problem. 110Hz? Yes! 120Hz.... nope. The screen gets distorted with artifacts (huge amount of green lines). Is it possible it's just the DVI cable fault?. I'm asking because I used to have a 1080p 120Hz screen and it did have similar issues with crappy DVI-D cables.

I'll do more testing soon. So far I'm very, very happy with this screen.

How are you how are creating your custom resolutions using CRU or NVCP or?...do you have Nvidia or Amd....do you have SLI or are you using crossfire?...are you using an optimized timings for your 120hz profile?...which patch did you use if any?...Name of the patch that you used please like eg: nvlddmkm-patcher-full.exe...thanks

You should read more carefully what I wrote, mate! Do I have Nvidia or AMD? I wrote I tried overclocking in Nvidia Control Panel. That should give you a hint wink.gif I just created a custom resolution in Nvidia Control Panel and that's it. I did not do anything else like optimized settings, timings or patches. I'm not using SLI. Yeah, maybe I should try it.

I've been told in the BF4 thread that the scale is for resolution, which would make 33% the right number for testing 1440p, but I've never tested it personally to see.

How is the resolution only 33% higher if it has 78% more pixels?

(1440-1080)/1080 = 0.33

(2560-1920)/1920 = 0.33

I'm just not sure which way they measure it. The resolution is 33% higher in each dimension, but the total pixel count is 78% higher. I'll see if I can find the posts in the BF4 thread about it.

Edit:
Some quick math and the testing done by Bit-tech would imply that the resolution scale is only applied to 1 dimension. They show that using 150% resolution scale cuts performance in half, which is what you would expect if you have doubled the number of pixels, and 150% applied to each dimension would be just over double the number of pixels (2.25 to be exact).

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2013/11/27/battlefield-4-performance-analysis/7

They also say "At 200 percent, the cards are effectively running at 4K" and 200% of 1920 would be 3840, or the 4K horizontal resolution.



On a different note, does anyone know what kind of offer excellentcastle usually accepts for his ultimate perfect pixel monitor, if any?
