It took longer for them to agree then it did to counter my first offer. I really expected another counter.

I thought this thing didn't have a built in scaler. Playing some games that don't support 1440 are still showing fullscreen. Am I missing something?

The GPU can do the scaling also, depending how you have it set in the control panel.

Can you let me know where you got the Overlord and Glossy from?

Still weighing up my options...and it all hangs on your reviews.....No Pressure :-)

Hi there,


As Tuba confirmed, my Qnix is glass but I think it's a light glass over glossy. It's near perfect with no dead pixels and no BLB. It's gorgeous! I got the Qnix from Amazon (Bizaroo) and I got the Overlord from their website. They sold out QUICK the other day.

So far, the Overlord is near perfect at 60hz. Testing 96/120hz as we speak.. more to come.

Sorry all -- trying to catch up. My son was in the hospital again today so another hectic day over from OCN wink.gif

I got it from the Overlord website as I mentioned. I have seen them on eBay as well. They are supposedly OCable A+ panels. We'll see about that... muhahahaha.

Good catch Tuba. I will take a better pic of the monitors. I couldn't find my good camera last night. Indeed though, the Overlord is a glossy and the Qnix looks like glass. Either way, I am still shocked how awesome the Qnix glass looks. tongue.gif

Sorry all -- was busy at hospital again. Also, my same son infected my PC with spyware.. twice.. in the last 24 hours. Had to rebuild my fracking PC.. twice. I'll try to catch up! Testing Overlord now...

I ordered it at TA-Korea Tuesday (payed) and I still haven't got a tracking number. Is this normal? Has anyone else ordered here and what are their experience with this seller? I was secretly hoping for a super speedy delivery like some other members have had. smile.gif

Thanks guys, really REALLY usefull thread!

I ordered from ta.korea about two weeks ago, his communication was good. He replied within 24hrs. Also, it took like a few days for the monitor to get to me. I got a pixel perfect version fyi. it was indeed pixel perfect and very minimal blb which I have just left as is.

Hey guys I have a weird question.

So I found a local guy who was willing to trade his Qnix for my Crossover and some cash, but when I saw the monitor, i noticed that it has a working OSD, which I thought it didn't have.

( also multiple inputs, I thought they were only HDMI )

Also, when he had it set to 120hz, it didn't look smooth at all, and even at 90, my 60hz still looked smoother.

( and for reference, my roomie has a 120hz asus monitor, so I know how 120hz is supposed to look )


should i go for it, or just keep with my tried and tested crossover.

Well, here is my update on Qnix Glossy (Glass) vs Overlord Tempest

First off, they are nearly identical except as noted below. The best way to describe is listing pros and cons:



Overlord Tempest OC

+ 110hz Overclock
+ No frame skipping
+ Gorgeous image out of the box. No calibration needed
+ Deep blacks/nice colors
+ Adjustable stand with tilt/height adjustment
+ Minimal reflections on glossy surface
- Price (~$550)
- Hard to find
- A bit more input lag than Qnix



Qnix Glossy/Glass

+110hz Overclock
+ No frame skipping
+ Gorgeous image but calibration needed (see below)
+ Deep blacks and amazing colors (Especially with glass as I hear most glass blacks are "gray")
+ PERFECT panel. No BLB or dead pixel
+ Price ($359 on Amazon)
- Reflective in bright room (My office has shades and is great)
- Needs pro calibration -- Luckily it looks AMAZING after my i1 Display Pro did it's magic


Well folks, tough decision. Both amazing monitors, trying to decide which one to keep. I have gotten so picky looking at these monitors, they are all fantastic! tongue.gif

I am debating on taking apart my Qnix and removing the glass. I think it's glossy beneath the glass but I am not sure...
