If so do you know where I can get the default RGB and Contrast info for the X-Star?
There are no defaults with an OSD-less monitor. Panels vary between the same monitor model, this is expected. The colorimeter helps you start by getting the same whitepoint on both via first setting the RGB channels to suitable positions, then making a color profile that the PC loads at the graphics cards side to correct the rest. Both the Qnix and the X-Star get calibrated to a reference point but before you start, the colorimeter would have helped you adjust the RGB sliders on the Qnix to get an accurate white. With the X-Star you will have to resort exclusively to a software color profile, as do all single-input Qnix / X-Star users.

That would be PERFECT for you, larrytek7. We'll help you get good profiles and then you can return the Colormunki.

@snapdragon, I'm hoping it's the Colormunki Display? Because that's an excellent sensor.

Anyone know of an equivalent scheme in the UK?

Has someone bought this and can confirm it is a real glossy one? Or confirm it is just a matte panel with glass?

Hi,

Does anyone use and overclock the Qnix QX2710 SE? If yes,

1) Do you use the normal patch and cru?

2) Could it reach 120hz as stated?

Would like to consider it. Since it says overclock to 120hz.

Thank you.

Just got mine awesome monitor I am more than happy with it thumb.gif

Is the true10 a good option if I don't really care about overclocking but do want a multi-input version? At the moment I have a QX2710 but I really hate not being able to connect anything other than my pc.

I have to pick between ocing the monitor, or the video cards rolleyes.gif

I have x2 AMD R9 290 cards in crossfire and my monitor hits 120hz as it did before with my x2 Nvidia Asus GTX660 cards.
