Thank you, can't wait! As much as I want to get matte due to everyone recommendation. I loved the monoprice one but some reason the refresh rate was locked at 59, I couldn't even overclock it to the stock 60 it was suppose to be. SInce you said the monoprice one was glossy. I might as well get the glossy one since I know I already like it instead of risk getting the matte then not liking it.

The monoprice one i had was the pefect panel guarantee one..I don't know if you had the same one..But i think all Monoprice monitors are glossy now that i think of it..They just use a anti glare coat on the screen to give it a purplish tone to reflections..

Yeah I had the perfect panel one that look like the QNIX, I just bought and paid for my gloss qnix from hulustar. Hopefully it can OC. I'm trying to decide if I want to pick up two more for surround. I would like to wait but they might end up changing the pcb to not be able to OC lol

Hmm, not sure. I'm using the Qnix as main as it OC'd to 120hz straight out of the box. There is noticeable BLB at the bottom but minor enough for me not to bother trying to fix it with the tape mod...

Severe darkening at 120hz but overcome with max brightness and good ICC profile.

The Catleap is (barring the awful stand) better built, which ain't saying much! It has a much bluer, colder temp before calibration, whereas the Qnix is yellowy-warm by default...

Only got the Yamasaki to 116hz tho and there is one stuck pixel (not a huge deal, but one more than the Qnix)...

It's the price that's the doozy: it cost more than twice as much as the Qnix and it certainly isn't worth that premium (especially with the default stand). I've since put on an old HannsG stand that's rock solid but it took ages to take apart the monitor (26 screws) to do so... I'm presuming the Qnix is less hassle (tho the stand is adequate as it is for the moment)....

PS *Darth Vader voice*: "OneGun, I find your choice of avatar.... disturbing." wink.gif

I try *not* to look at your avatar! weirdsmiley.gif

I got the ICC profile from here somewhere but since I renamed the file to Qnix 120hz, err I'm not sure which one it was. But it works good! thumb.gif

I think it was cor35vet's 120 profile: http://woabou.eu/files/icc/

I can recommend excellentcastle, got an almost perfect monitor, quick shipping and he automatically marked it for lower value.
