Does anyone think a fix will ever be available for the decreased brightness at 120hz? I pushed it up to 144hz for a few minutes and it was terrible, colors all faded into a display that looked like the gamma had been turned all the way down. 96hz seems to be the ideal zone but the image quality isn't as good as at 60hz, I tried running my monitor at 24hz to see if I would be able to make the colors even better than at 60hz but their was no change.

Few more things, if you are noticing your videos are slightly washed out go into nvidia control panel into video settings and switch the color mode from limited to full, this made movies look much better. The two check box options seem to do nothing if anyone has a preference let me know please.

Is there a better expansion algorithm to upscale 1080p videos? When I play them gray squares form in spots where it is dark and it looks worse than on my 1080p tv. I am currently not scaling videos showing a 1080p screen in the center of mine using VLC to acheive this.

Has anyone done interpolation to force 96hz content? There are many things I tried however they are all locked at 60hz which leads to stuttering. I don't mind the soap opera affect if it allows me not to get pissed off at fight sceens.

Finally which color setting do you like the best? My preference is the Samsung configuration as it is the most bright and counteracts the overclock.

Just joined this site to say I got my glossy QNIX 27. It looks wonderful, a big step up from my 19 inch Samsung syncmaster. I ordered the Perfect Pixel from dream_seller last Wednesday late night for $339. The monitor came in Monday afternoon. I have minimal backlight bleed, only a tiny bit at the bottom edge, but completely unnoticeable unless I am looking for it. The screen is sturdy and the whole panel seems to be put together well and tight (no flimsy screen when you press with finger). The glossy finish is wonderful IMO, I have a window by my side, and it is only bothersome on completely black images. I managed to OC to 96hz. I have not tried anything else atm. I think I will try 120 now...

I wanted to say thanks for all of the information here. I couldn't and wouldn't have done it without this thread. So happy with my new monitor.

EDIT: 120hz working. This **** is amazing. Stock DVI cable, btw.

I just overclocked mine for the first time, makes it to 120hz , but as Feild Scarecrow mentioned the screen getting dim (Or whatever you like to call it) as the hz gets higher is pretty annoying, not sure how to overcome that.

I finally got my monitor here to France (17th May) but didnt have time to play around with it until today.
It's a nice screen - no doubt. I have not found any dead pixels but there is however some BLB present in the bottom of the screen.
I did some calibration with my Spyder3 but in the end I decided to use the Asus PB278Q color profile setting as I liked the way colors stood out more compared to the somewhat cold calibrated profile (6500K, 2.2 Gamma).

When trying to overclock i had to spend quite some time before I managed, bare in mind that this is the first time I overclock a monitor. wink.gif
I am on a Windows 8, 64-bit system and are running 2 x Sapphire 7950 (Crossfire, bridged with 2 bridges). I then patched the video drivers with the pixel clock patcher. Then loaded up the CRU utility and overclocked to 96Hz and later 120Hz which seemed good, at least when in desktop mode.

When trying out games however (BF3, Tomb Raider, Trine 2 etc.) I had problems when leaving 60Hz. Both 96Hz and 120Hz shows some rolling/flickering effect that I seem unable to localize the cause of!? I have tried enabling/Disabling VSYNC and also a few other settings but no luck.

Has this been mentioned/observed by other users? I seem unable to find any info concerning this problem and It feels kind of sad to set the screen to 60Hz now that I am starting to get used to the stability of 96Hz.

Below I have collected some ifo that could help to solving my problem and also provided a 6sec youtube-clip that shows the effect in motion.

Crossing thumbs for a solution....

BTW. should the monitor driver be for "Generic PnP Monitor" ???

You might need a different cable. I'm not using monitor driver yet so not sure what that will do. I get some lines while gaming at clocks higher than 120hz. But timing can fix it. I have a feeling though most yor issues are from the cable. 96hz should work fine though even with a bad cable. So could be something else.

Well for a starter you could try the beta drivers for you GPU. I'm running 13.5.

Also i've heard some bad things about Win8 and the AMD drivers.. Haven't had issues on my laptop tho.

I have windows 8 and amd gpu's. I haven't had an issue.

I haven't been able to do 144, screen gets jump and scan lines and such. 120 is fine.
