I read that too and am skeptical. Luckily, I haven't had to test that guarantee. Mine was almost flawless besides panel play

It actually says 14 days. And you will be responsible for shipping fees unless the monitor is not working or has huge flaws. Minor backlight bleed and dead pixels won't work. But A LOT of dead pixels or huge backlight bleed should mean that they cover the cost of shipping as well.

Yea i was rereading the product info and sketched out, since some of the other sellers offer 1 year warranty

It was known that this panel has no OSD to adjust RGB values; Hue; Saturation; Contrast etc to give accurate colours.

Yet people are buying PLS / IPS panels which are majority used by photo editing enthusiasts due to the panels better colours and complain that the colours are crappy when they overclock the panel.

Editing enthusiasts will have calibration tools and software to create there own ICC profiles to give supreme neutral colours.

So if people are complaining the colours look odd and the ICC profiles in the OP don't give good results for them when overclocked then I suggest you INVEST in something like an Xrite Display 3 Pro and use either Displaycal or Chromapure to get the best colours out of your panels.

There will be variation in ALL panels so it will be highly unlikely that the profiles will be suitable for your monitor. I've tried them all and I was shocked by how much variation there is.

I'm not having a go mate, just need to give the panel credit where it's due, as it looks flipping awesome even when overclocked . Get it professionally calibrated, or just get something cheap like a Spyder 4 and use DisplaycalGUI and calibrate it yourself.

But there is a way to have it all if you're willing to spend some money.

I was already on the 1440p bandwagon. I got a pls to try something different. I doubt a "professional" profile will fix the issues I had as I tried 9 of my own. What I think a lot of people are doing wrong is jumping on the OC bandwagon assuming a profile can fix this issue. It can't. It's been established the issue is the hardware itself isn't capable of delivering the same quality at those speeds. I'm giving this panel all the credit I can but even calibrated it's not as neutral as my crossover, and it's not even in the same ballpark with an overclock. Black levels and low defect rate (not counting the blb) are it's saving grace, but it's still up in the air which I'll keep.

It seems for the price, this is the best monitor unless you want to become a professional gamer or require professional color accuracy. Anything else that comes close requires almost double the price such as Dell, Samsung, or Asus. Most people won't require professional color accuracy and won't be playing FPS games at a professional level so I believe this is the best all-around monitor for the price. I just hate the back bleeds.

howdy folks

I have a question regarding the Qnix 2710 evolution II

I'm trying to purchase one off ebay but I have an HD 6850, and it's not on the compatibility chart since it isn't DVI-D. is there an adapter I can use to make it work or will I need to purchase a different GPU or monitor instead?
