Avoid any monitor that is priced low. @230 it is offgrade or something wrong with it and/or returned to dealer.

ALso for any others interested in Qnix, there has been some controversy that they are not shipping same panels as before. The glossy panels are reportedly being shipped slightly different to the original. Orig panel model no. LTM270DL02, new ones have been shipping as LTM270DL07.

and review of new vs old: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTuKbLBmBxg

Anyone still interested in Qnix may want to consider the matte version which is supposedly unchanged from the original.

Hi, I just wanted to ask does anyone have any good, amazing color profiles? My monitor looks so washed out and I don't know what to do. It's so bright and when I turn down the brightness then it's to dark. I want to try a color profile before deciding to sell it. My PN51F8500 Samsung looks so much better playing at 1080p then this monitor. Maybe its my settings?

I mainly play CSGO and was planning to buy a benq 144hz until i found this monitor.

How will the overclocking perform on lower resolutions? I play CSGO on 1024x768, so how will the overclocking perform and work on the lower resolutions up to 1920x1080. Im willing to run default 60hz on the 1440p resolution but i would want 120hz when playing CSGO. Is there any user playing CSGO with this monitor? How does it perform compared to a normal TN panel with 75hz refresh rate?

Also i understand that the monitor controls only allow brightness and volume adjustment, if I want to change my monitor to 4:3 aspect ratio with black bars for CSGO how do i have to go about doing it?

Is the stand of the monitor a big problem that I have to buy another monitor stand to replace it?

The price im quoting is for the matt version from AccessoriesWhole. i think many people bought from this seller.

Anyone tried playing CSGO with this monitor? And how does the overclocking works and perform at lower resolutions?

This is a problem usually found with the new glossy Qnixs being shipped with the L07 panels (vs the orig L02), that it is 'washed out' and not as vibrant as original Qnixs. Although it should not be as apparent without a direct comparison side by side.

A search for the term "washed" in this thread may reveal some clues how to address it:

http://www.overclock.net/newsearch/?search=washed&resultSortingPreference=recency&byuser=&output=posts&sdate=0&newer=1&type=all&containingthread[0]=1384767&advanced=1

I think the OP of this thread needs to update the first page to reflect this. People today are not buying the same awesome Qnixs that made this monitor so popular. For anyone to consider Qnix now, only go for matte as that seems to still retain the original L02 panel.

Many, many people bought great Qnixs from AccessoriesWhole over past few years. That does not mean what is offered at a silly price NOW is a good buy. At $230 that sounds like an off-grade monitor (ie, serious light bleed or other faults) which is why they are selling it for so low. A proper functioning Qnix will not likely be selling for less than $300 today.

As far as CSGO (although not played or tried it on Qnix), You can use a lower res in your GPU control panel. How it will look, I dont know, just that it will never look as good vs native res. Maybe you can try searching at Widescreen Gaming Forums for solutions or workarounds (which they have for many games) incl even being able to play it at higher res.

if your looking at the one you linked me, its a true10 with the extra ports. since its not a dvi only it will have a scaler board and should be able to run the resolutions your looking to push to it thumb.gif

If its the True10, avoid at all cost! It doesnt even have the famed PLS panel, but an inferior AH-Va one. Again, avoid at all costs. Here is a review of it:

My Power adapter is dead , I am looking for a replacement.
I bought one for a local store , but the color seem to be darker + i couldn't OC the monitor . Even that I was able to Over clock it to 110Hz with the old adapter.
SO for now I will use this crappy adapter until I order a new one.

Q1: What are good adapters 12v 3A that would work with this monitor ?
Q2: How can I adjust the bad new colors of the monitor ?

I've tried searching the thread for this, but couldn't find the answer (probably because I couldn't word the question correctly).

I've OC'd the monitor to 120hz, and it seems to work fine (there's a shift in brightness/contrast, but I expected that). My question is:

is it safe to keep the monitor at that refresh rate 100% of the time? Are there any downsides to it?
