[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 2426

post #24251 of 25922
Hi.

Is anyone familiar with AHWA Panel/Adobe RGB 100%? I heard PLS colors are better, but since this is an ADOBE RGB 100%, does that make it better?

I don't know which monitor I should suggest my sister. She studys fine arts and wants a colorful Monitor.

I guess it's either:

http://www.ebay.de/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-II-Adobe-DP-27-2560x1440-Adobe-RGB-100-10bit-Monitor-/131547253338?hash=item1ea0d3ca5a:g:RC8AAOSwHnFVkpJo

or

http://www.ebay.de/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-Matte-27-2560x1440-SAMSUNG-PLS-27-Zoll-Monitor-/130913840957?hash=item1e7b12af3d:g:p1EAAMXQ0pNRtZBS

Any info on the 10 bit?

Thanks,
help is really appreciated.

I just received my glossy X-Star from Dream Seller for $199 and after opening it to remove the stand stem, it is indeed an 02 panel. So happy. BF4 looks amazing at 120hz. Just thought I'd share this.

edit:
Forgot to mention no backlight bleed and 0 dead pixels.

No, it actually makes it 100% worse since the monitor will vastly over-saturate colours unless used properly with work related programs which support colour management (Photoshop), and consumer media is created for the sRGB colour space which is considerably smaller than Adobe RGB colour space. Left: Non-colour managed wide gamut monitor versus normal monitor:

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality

It's irrelevant, refer to my signature. Make her buy a Crossover 2795 QHD (Official Thread) to avoid the PWM and panel lottery the single-input Qnox/X-Star suffer from, plus it's better than them anyway. PLS>IPS=myth and varies on a case by case/monitor basis; some IPS are better than some PLS.

I bought this Qnix monitor the other day, I didn't read this thread first. doh.gif

I just, just got tired of my old one so I ended up with the wrong one of course with the Multi Input. Anyways, I overclocked it to 110 but it has frame skipping, At 72 there is no frame skipping, will try higher later. I also did a lot of testing for PWM frequency and I can't seem to detect it at 50% brightness so I am very happy with it. No dead pixels or BLB. Going to pick up another one work. The crossover is better right? Can do 120 with no frame skipping? The Qnix is seriously great for 200 bucks. I paid up to get the Vesa stand ended up being 329 won't make that mistake this time.

Wow, really? Maybe I should order one now in case there's no more 02 soon.

MMM I got the matte one and wanted to add 2 more. Is the Matte original hard to find too or just the glossy?
Maybe I can just get two glossy ones for my side ones...

I have not seen the matte version around much and any I've seen have been like $100 more (a bit over $300).

Luckily, for me, I only use my computer in a dimly lit cave (my bedroom), so glossy should be just fine tongue.gif

Well I play in a dark room too and since my center one will be matte, I guess I can live with that. biggrin.gif

I thought he was talking about the X-Star DP2710, which I can only find like a single matte version of on ebay.
