Really considering the Qnix qx2710 at this point. I have a 970, plenty of power to run games smile.gif

What are the differences between these?

And I'm guessing I need to buy an AC adapter seperately since I live in Denmark, right?

EDIT: Found the X-star dp2710 as well, didn't know they had them on the UK Ebay.

What are the pros and cons of both? Should I be afraid of dead pixels, and things alike?

Well the difference between the varies Ebay listings are the True 10 and Evolution II models. The True 10 has multiple display inputs like HDMI and DVI-D, if you want to game with it I would recommend the Evolution II model as it is a DVI-D only model, but can be overclocked. Most units get 96hz to 120hz.

You also have your Pixel Perfect units which is the seller trying to get to get more $$ out of you by guaranteeing a maximum amount of possible dead pixels. Some say its BS.. most recent purchases I've seen made here were pixel perfect and no dead pixels are reported.

As for the X-Star it is basically the same unit. QNIX are just more commonly known.

I am new to this section and thread.. maybe 2 weeks, but I've learned some I guess so any Vets can step in and help answer or give me the nod of approval that would be cool. I am not yet a member of the club, but should be soon!

Nice to know about the overclocking, I guess the Evolution II model is my only option, as overclocking is the main reason I'm getting this monitor.

189 pounds with no postage fees is just too good to pass up if I end up not getting any dead pixels. But I guess that's the high risk/high reward nature of these monitors biggrin.gif

Several thoughts come to mind here. One, does Denmark have a trade agreement with Korea? If not, you may be hit with a import fee of some kind, usually based on the value declared by the seller at the time of shipment. And actually, X-Star/DisplayLand INC is the manufacturer of Qnix, but the only thing I can see different is the brand name label on the monitor and the box it comes in, lol.

This is purely a guess, but I think Qnix were first introduced as the brand that DisplayLand wanted to use for export (hence why its more popular), and X-Star is the name brand they wanted to keep for themselves, probably for no more reason than to make it easier on the paperwork and any possible recall situation. I just think the sellers, which are obviously 3rd parties, were not so good at keeping it all contained and started selling both to anyone worldwide and now DisplayLand no longer cares... LOL, that is my not so educated guess as to why Qnix is a more popular name, when it is manufactured by X-Star...

Well, considering I might have to pay extra when it comes over the borders, it still won't be as expensive as buying the equivalent of a more known brand, especially considering that it'll overclock to 96Hz or more. Sometimes the borders send a bill before you can pick the package up, sometimes not. If they don't great, if they do, It'll still be cheaper than getting a 27" 1440p IPS panel here in Denmark smile.gif

But what about adapters? What should I look for when buying a new one? Will a generic one in the electronics department of a store work?

The only advantages I know of the Catleap over the Qnix are the ability to handle OC without noticeable side effects(gamma shift, panel uniformity, colors... etc) and the slightly faster response (less blur,lag). Correct me if I'm wrong or missing something.

I don't have any information about the recent glossy Qnix evo2 if has a better panel than the usual Qnix. So if anyone have tried it, please elaborate how good it is smile.gif

Feedback is much appreciated! Ty

After reading the entire Qnix thread and Yamakasi threads, along with every review I can find on both, I think the LG based monitors are ever so slightly a safer bet. If something were to go wrong, they are easier to replace parts on, and easier to find parts for. Out of the box, I do believe the Qnix is ever so slightly more eye popping though, all based on what I have read. The LG panels that overclock are based on a certified LG design, however the Qnix/Xstar brand has electronics based on the sole design by DisplayLand INC (who is that?).

For me, what matters most is reliability and the ability for me to do a quick repair if it suddenly stopped working. We can buy parts for the LG based monitors much faster, and slightly cheaper. Thus I can have backup parts already sitting here, just in case. With that said, you can also purchase parts for the X-Star brands as well, but only one source that I know of exists currently.

EDIT: And umm, I thought I was posting in the Yamakasi thread, lmao. Sorry...

@Zahix ... your pretty right on except there has been no verifiable differences reported in the input lag between the 2 models at stock or overclocked ... AND basically the Cat2B is GLOSSY ... QNIX PLS is MATTE screen finishes ...
I'm still surprised at the amount of users that prefer the Matte over Glossy as glossy is a slightly sharper picture but if glare is a problem then the Matte does it's job quite well without an overly offensive AG coating.

@adam ... I'm waiting to see if more people like yourself, order a glossy @ appx $350 and "consistently" get a true glossy like you did, before we can reliably recommend a true Glossy QNIX PLS at that price rolleyes.gif

I also agree with Skorpion, I think the serviceability of the CAT2B is a big plus! ... +R

BUT .... the real downside to the Cat2B is it's price, it looks like it has gone back up ...
+$200 ... from green-sum the only reliable vendor, not as bad as the $700-$800 previously but considerably more than a QNIX ...
See HERE ... unless someone finds different please link ...

EDIT: So here are my thoughts as of today on the Cat2B vs QNIX PLS ...
As many of you know I'd prefer the Cat2B because of it's true Glossy panel, if it overclocked in the same (96Hz-120Hz) range as reliably as a QNIX does. I almost sold my "golden" QNIX to buy the Cat2B because the price had come down to the QNIX's $350 range ...
BUT it seems most of the Cat2B's people recently ordered are not overclocking consistently even some at 96Hz redface.gif
Is it just the "SE" serial # unit's with different (inferior?) components causing the poor performance, red dot artifacts along with the traditional green scan lines or has something else changed? Maybe a bad batch of LVDS cables? Time will tell if the Cat2B makes a comeback and reliably OC's like in the past AND brings their prices down again rolleyes.gif ...
In the mean time I'm really glad I still have my QNIX and with the recent Cat2B problems ...
I'd say the QNIX takes the lead in consistent overclocking reliability! thumb.gif

Very nice! Can you tell us who you bought from (model link?) Did you use Color Sustainer to correct gamma shift? ... You might also find some useful info in Lawson's OC thread HERE ...

@JMattes well done +R biggrin.gif couple suggestions ... varies = various rolleyes.gif
They are all "Evolution II" models ... so the overclockable (96Hz-120Hz) short title should say QNIX PLS single-input wink.gif
Also add the more info/proof link in the OP under [Monitor Information - 1st time buyer tips!] or direct link HERE ...

Adapters? Do you have a fairly recent video card with a DVI port? Do you have a DVI-D (Dual Link) cable (should come with one anyway)? I am not sure what adapter you will need, as that depends on your setup and needs.

I think I used the wrong words. What I meant was whether I should buy an extra power outlet, as a UK one might not be compatible with the power outlets here in Denmark. Not sure what they use in the UK.

Other than that, I've read a few people getting better, higher quality power adapters which made their monitors overclock higher and more reliably.

Oh, yeah you might want to wait because some of the monitors come with a Universal adapter in the box that works with all countries power sockets... Not sure of its quality though, lol...
