[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 2300

post #22991 of 25332
I posted a thread on here about returning my catleap multi input version because it has severe backlight bleed and going with a Qnix qx2710 however someone linked this video about the newer Qnix qx2710s using different panels than the older ones. I'm looking at buying this one as it is the only Qnix that is fulfilled by amazon and I like being covered by amazon's return policy. Is it still worth it to buy these panels or should I look somewhere else? I loved the picture quality of my catleap but when it has backlight bleed that takes up 3/4 of the screen i just couldn't stand it in games with dark scenes.

Hey guys, I havent posted here in a really long time. Just wanted to report back - its been a year since I bought my matte QX2710 and it's still running perfectly fine with zero defective pixels. And it runs overclocked at 96hz all of the time.


I just thought I should share that since people usually post when someone's gone wrong, but rarely post when things are working fine. thumb.gif

the nice thing is that if you use velcro you can actually use the tablet still!

the hardest part is going to be finding something small enough with a true dual link dvi port unfortunitly

something like this would work tho http://zotacusa.com/zotac-z68-itx-wifi-supreme-z68itx-b-e.html

thanks for advise - thought hdmi - dvi-d was not possible in our case.
Can you point to the adapter used & working with QX2710 ?

turns out theres no active adapters that can do this resolution unless they are for DP

this thread will help you alot

heres a good example of TN vs IPS/PLS side-by-side. both are at an angle so you can see viewing angles

the left monitor is a alienware (dell) aw2310 TN 120hz 3d panel. horrible color accuracy, horrible BL glow, dim, thick AG coating but super fast!
right monitor qnix qx2710 IPS set to 96hz , color accurate, bl glow just a tad, no AG coating, super smooth!




my panel developed a small amount of BL bleed at the top from settling on my desk. So I did an old trick that i learned on the AVS forums for my tv.

take a terry cloth towel, dampen it just a bit. with the screen off applying light pressure to the screen wipe vertically while supporting the back of the case with your other hand. turn on the monitor and check to see if it helped. at this point my bl bleed was almost gone. so with the monitor on i did the same thing very carefully as to not disturb the liquid too much and was able to massage out all of my BL bleed as seen above smile.gif

bro, can you PN me about this cable you have? i have 3x of these monitors and im only using one at the moment with stock everything. stock power cable and dvi cables and only get 96hz. If i can get more due to a cable.

Guys, Any benefit to buying a new DL-DVI cable? I've had the QNIX for a little over a year. Haven't tried to overclock it yet .. but now that I've got SLI 970's, it seems I can easily push the 60fps barrier. Should I get a new cable before I even try?

If i can get more due to a cable. then hook a brother up lol. But i would like for you to test it out before i get one like you and we can potentially help eachother out.

It seems like the most important factor when it comes to the cable is the length. The shorter the cable the better.

The cable that comes with the Qnix seems to be fairly high quality and is pretty short. I would try that first. Overclocking is pretty straight forward so you will know in a couple minutes whether your going to have trouble or not. Try 96hz first and go from there. If you have trouble at 96, then you may want to look into a higher cable. If you can do 96 but have problems at say 110, well that's probably just panel lottery and no need for a new cable.
