Just for you I pulled out my old pc that has a radeon hd 7770 series in it. Comparing it to the pictures of dvi-i dual link in this thread, both of the dvi outputs on it are dvi-i dual link. I was able to connect my monitor to both ports and it worked fine in both smile.gif If that helps you any.

@Lazdaa yes that is correct.

I can't believe the UK doesn't stock a monoprice 24awg cable. Getting one in from the USA incurs silly shipping rates. rolleyes.gif

I ordered QNIX QX2710 Evolution ll 2560x1440 QHD PLS Panel Monitor Matte Screen on 20.5.2013 from bigclothcraft for $309.90
+ $40.00 shipping
Communication was OK, he said, that he will send me the best monitor wink.gif
I wanted to send it via EMS with value $185.

He sent it on 23.5. and on 24.5. was monitor in Czech republic and on the same date it was Handed over to Customs.
I had to send them some documents and pay them for the Customs procedure. mad.gif M G
Post Car arrived on 30.5. and nobody told me how much I had to pay for customs and they didnt have my phone nubmer so I had to catch the car.
I couldnt pay with credit card so I had to run to the ATM.
Customs was $65.

Monitor is without dead pixels, only with some really small light bleeding smile.gif
With stock cable i OCd it to 100hz without problems. With 120hz I had few blue lines, but it was running well. I have to buy better Dual-DVI cable.
Total price was $436.

Question about the cable, I'm searching for a replacement for when I get the monitor, but!
I'm in Belgium so no monoprice. I found a few but they al said in their description: resolution up to 1080p frown.gif

So I'm guessing those are not good

OK guys FedEx brought mine today! (ordered on Monday, so 5 days from Korea to Germany!)
well what can I say about this monitor but wow!
very little BLB in the lower left corner (doesn't bother me at all), zero dead pixels, zero stuck pixels.
Colors are way better than with my old TN, but the response time is a little worse (at 60Hz).
However once the QNIX goes past 100Hz everything is very smooth and the response time is head to head with my old 2ms TN.
I love the higher resolution and I dont regret buying it.
There is one issue though, the picture becomes very dim at ~120Hz (btw I was able to overclock to 120Hz withOUT LCD reduced, and I have a feeling that I can go even farther)
Is there a way to calibrate the picture so that it becomes brighter?
Also the colors are a little off at 120Hz, need to calibrate....


So all in all I can say that the only bad thing about this monitor is the stand and maybe the quality of the material they used.


I ordered from accessorieswhole (259,98€)

Thanks guys for drawing my attention to the QNIX!

I just bit my lip and ordered one. The monoprice cables are not guaranteed to give 120Hz, but since they are made from lower resistance copper the likely hood is increased.

My stock cable hit 110hz but any higher would introduce banding and horizontal red lines. With exchange rates factored in and it being a low value item I don't expect custom charges so it would have cost £25.

There always has to be a Guinea Pig in this game, so it will be down to a pure enthusiast to test all the cables available in their territory and do a review, by measuring cable thickness, maximum refresh rates, quoted AWG etc.
