How does that compare to the X-Star DP2710 that's been $200 for a while?

I see that the QNIX is "Perfect Pixel", but I've heard that it's more of a gimmick. Aren't the two monitors nearly identical in panel quality/overclocking ability?

Is it possible to set up the colors on an 07 to try to mimic the 02? Isn't the 02 basically darker blacks/better contrast?
post #24234 of 25924
I purchased one of the Glossy panels from Green-Sum and received it today. I was really hoping for a 02 panel based on what everyone was saying, but received a 07 panel =(. I am not really disappointed with it at all though. I was able to overclock it to 110hz with little issue, but got a weird flicker every so often and turned it down to 105hz. It has been there all day with no problems at all. I posted some pictures as well. It is very vibrant with no backlight bleed and no dead pixels. I was VERY worried about the "washed out" colors other say they had with the 07 panels, but it looks very nice. It does seem to have "PWM dimming" but I am not 100% sure how it effects anything yet.

They're made by the same company and are the same aside from the fact that the X-Star monitors usually have easily remove-able stands while the Qnix's stand is made with the same parts, but is usually screwed in on the inside.

No. The glossy 02 has inaccurate colour presets since it suffer from an obvious red dominance and high gamma which causes black crush which is further exacerbated when the 02 is overclocked. The 07's gamma doesn't change when overclocked and is slightly too low resulting in less saturated, but more neutral colours. The 02 looks better once calibrated, but a colorimeter (x-rite colour munkie is the cheapest, accurate colorimeter; spyders are inaccurate and a waste of $) is required to calibrate a monitor properly. Using someone else's ICC profile ≠ calibration but is likely good enough for the 99%, especially for the 02 & extremely rare matte 06 panels since they suffer from black crush (the gamma rises) when overclocked.

Those who want a cheap glossy monitor should forget about these and buy a HP 25/27 CW or XW which better than 99% of monitors available. Unfortunately I'm not allowed to link to my review, but one can always use google.

@Everyone Else

Playwares just reviewed a new edition of the Qnix QX2710 Multi DP which now has twice the contrast of the original normal (competitive/fast) pixel response times and is actually flicker/PWM free unlike the original version reviewed by TFT Central. It's this monitor to buy if one wants a matte multi-input, in fact this unit they tested is better than all of the affordable name brand options like the Asus PB278Q, BenQ GW2765HT. Unfortunately they did not check to see if it drops frames when overclocked. I also don't know to differentiate between the old and new versions.

Ok, so I started my computer this morning and the monitor started shutting off as soon as I logged into windows. I disabled the monitor overclock from safe mode, and logged in normally, bam same issue. Found out my overclock on my GPU was causing the flickering and shut off. I deleted MSI-AB from safe mode and made a newer overclock profile on my 290 to 1025 and no memory overclock. Ran my monitor up to 96hz and running with no issues.

I have no idea if this is the best panel for overclocking, but it seems to do a good job. I also don't have a camera, so I did some screen shots.

It only flashes a little bit during start up, for maybe 10 seconds. I can see the desktop on startup, but it just wigs out, almost like a display driver acting out when overclocking. Then it's fine after 10 seconds.

I have an 860k + 290 (15.9)
Windows 10
Single Monitor

I have not seen any dimming or pwm shifting on ufo tests. I'm just wondering if I'm going to blow this monitor up...lol.

Nice! You beat me to it, you were initially right it was a driver problem wink.gif
Still a bit confused on which model you actually have, because the one you linked (L07 Glossy) didn't even become available until over 6mos later ... no worries, glad your up and running again biggrin.gif

When encountering this type of problem the 1st thing most guys do is replace the Power supply ...

Everyone should occasionally check their power brick, and if it is "Hot" to the touch I would replace it wink.gif

@MTuba +R for the new info thumb.gif

"QNIX naming conventions" ... STINK mad.gif
I give up trying to differentiate all the different models under the same name redface.gif

It's less about me simply wanting a cheap monitor, but me wanting a cheap monitor that can overclock, which is why the Korean monitors are appealing to me, lol. I'm willing to sacrifice a bit of color accuracy for more hertz.

Would a 07 panel still be a big upgrade from a TN?

The HP monitors can be overclocked to 75hz, and doing so is not pointless since they don't use PWM or are Flicker Free unlike the most common versions of the PLS Qnix/X-Star, and offer much better image quality than both the glossy 02 & 07, as well as suffer from far less ghosting than all versions of the PLS Qnix/X-Star. Obviously an 07 offers better image quality than most TN panels, but without knowing the model I can't determine if it will offer better gaming performance.

The HP monitors I mentioned 100% destroy the 07 for the same price though.

Do you have any idea if my current monitor, the BenQ RL2450HT (TN), has PWM flicker? I've been having trouble figuring out if it does. If it does, I haven't noticed at all and I wouldn't care for a PWM free monitor if it meant sacrificing more overclocking capabilities.
