[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 2139

post #21381 of 25891
I want to say this for people who don't know about the matte coating of the qnix/x-star monitors.

Well,you know the matte Dell/HP matte monitors that you frequently see at work offices/libraries/schools etc...?

The qnix/xstar matte coating are NOTHING like that. It is a very light coating which does NOT produce that grain or glittery appearance of heavy coated monitors.

In fact, while it is technically true that glossy panels have a slightly better representation of colors, this is negated by the fact that glossy panels produce glare and reflections, so the advantage of of better colors is gone. Assuming you're in a well lit room.

I bought my matte Qnix when true glossy panels were at the same price range as matte ones and still went with the matte.

I'm not dissing on glossy panels. I'm just reassuring those who are hesitant of ending up with matte panels smile.gif

I know tempered glass is a close representation of glossy. The glare was annoying, especially when firing up Battlefield. Everything looks super crisp now. I can even have my blinds somewhat open now unlike before. Matte all the way.

Ty, I'll be waiting his reply.

@TomcatV Thanks for your input on the tempered glass scheme. I will be sure not to fall into it if I decide to go with a glossy Qnix.

Also guys, what do you think of this cheap listing of the Cat2B http://www.2560x1440monitor.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=57&product_id=127 ?? can I trust this website??

Is the Qnix 2710 still available? Please suggest a reputable reseller with affordable price. I bought one months ago and the resellers jacked their prices up.

Just for Giggles. I shot accessories an email if it's glossy or tempered over matte. Now I wait.

uhh.. so i just opened up and installed my brand new qnix... its only displaying 1080x1920 in windows. When i press the menu it only shows 1080 as well. Is something wrong? Just updated my drivers and restarted computer and nada.

The colors also look very washed out. (playing ps4)


bought it from here

Edit: Are you connecting it via DVI to your computer? HDMI maybe can't do 1440p

Did you test both for PWM or just the one? Curious to know if they both use it. You know what to do smile.gif http://testufo.com/#test=blurtrail
