I wanted a glossy one, but oh well, for the price they want, I just ordered a matte. Once people confirmed the new ones didn't overclock, I ordered, just in case they really stop making them. It is also possible down the line sales drop and they come out with another one for overclocking, but I didn't want to play the waiting game.

I say that we should keep it simple. If it skips frames, let's just say it doesn't overclock.

So I finally managed to calibrate my monitor with a third part software (dispcalGUI in my case) and the difference to my old profiles is HUGE. I didn't realize how blueish my whites were before and especially the black levels are superior compared to my old profiles. So I highly recommend anyone with Qnix to give this new profile of mine a go. My Qnix is running @ 96hz and the profile is done to 2.2 gamma, 6.5k whitepoint and with 180cd/cm2 backlight, which in my monitor is 17 clicks from the minimum.

this.

EDIT:

Wow - I just went to track and then fedex turned up at my door saying: Here's your package.
I was like...I was supposed to reject it. Driver said: Ok - and then just went lol.
He didn't seem pleased for some reason!

PS. took 4 days - the QNIX was not packaged at all - it was just the box and no bubble wrap around it. Ie if I had just bought it off the shelf from a store. That's disappointing - the screen could EASILY get damaged in transit.

Yeah, he was literally like: "Oh ok then, no idea why they didn't call." He starts walking off and then I ask him: "Where there any customs charges? DO you know how much the seller will be charged?" His reply: "NO idea!" With like a shake on his head...
I mean his the driver I know, but surely he would have to know if there were ANY customs charges as he would be the one needing to declare it to me?
I guess there wasn't any custom charges then?

I was in two minds as I saw the monitor. Problem is if I opened it, didn't like it, have to return it - the problems of sending an open package + arranging delivery would cost me probably over $50 as it is.
So, I think I made the right decision. At least the seller doesn't have to "restock it" - it's unopened.

The seller did tell me the manufacturer did "guarantee it" to work with Xbox.
Sure, but maybe not at 1080P. And that's a deal breaker for me.

I played at 720p and 1080i for a long long period of time. I utterly hated it - until I got my LG monitor. Made a world of difference to me.

Lol.. I can't wait to see the look on my wife's face when she accepts the package when I am at work. She is gonna be so pissed. Then I will come home and she will be like "You wanna explain this?". Lol, "Yeah babe, it cost me $23 total", "We're good!".

Say: "Work paid for it"
Then you'll get: "Why didn't you get me anything then!?"
I can almost bet that haha
