Yay i got my monitor today.

Set up was easy, minimum backlight bleed, no stuck or dead pixels i could not be happier.
And i got it up to 120hz no problems with the included cable ^-^

The Qnix qx2710 has speakers right? I don't expect them to be good, I'll get on to buying a dedicated pair ASAP.

I have a glossy TV and hardly notice it even though its beside a window. So there's no point in going matte really is there, I'll just be losing image clarity right?

I don't think there is a qnix that includes hdmi. There are other korean brands that do, however multiple inputs produce more lag I believe, don't know if that's important to you. Also don't know if you plan to overclock, overclocking models of other brands are much more expensive than the qnix/xstar.

It does have speakers. I have never used them on mine, but I hear that they are really really bad quality. Use headphones are a dedicated pair.

My glossy screens don't bother me, but they are highly reflective. It's all personal preference.

Looks good! That other screen looks kind of small next to it lol.

So i've got mine from Hulustar today.
No dead pixels, but some bleeding in the left bottom corner.
Running it at 96 hz atm, I do notice ghosting in games..
Build quality is meh, and it seems there is half a cm of room between the frame and the screen in the bottom.
Overall i'm not disappointed because I knew not to expect the best.

I got really scared when I first attached the screen, I had already bought a dual-dvi cable and was gonna use that..
I got a messed up screen, I feared my screen was dead... Luckily the issue didn't arise when I attached the original cable smile.gif

Seller is in Hamburg. HTH.

Unfortunately that seller only sells to the UK frown.gif.
Is it important to have an awg 24 cable, or would an awg 28 do as well? (remember I want to reach 120Hz, stock cable does ~115Hz)
those 24awg cables seem to cost more than 80€ here in Germany.


btw. what does that CL2 stand for?

There are no multi-input 1440P displays on the market that can go go higher than 60Hz as yet...

I received a glossy X-Star DP2710 via FedEx on Friday. It didn't even take a week to get here once shipped. In any case it seems perfectly happy to run at 100 Hz, so that's pretty cool. I tried 10 Hz steps starting at 80 Hz and haven't tried higher than 100 Hz yet. I didn't think the difference would be so drastic, but motion feels entirely different at 100 Hz than it does at 60 Hz. When I turn in a game, I sort of motion blur into my new position instead of chopping to it which is much more akin to real life. It has actually made it hard to aim just like if I had changed mice, but I'll adjust.

One thing I've noticed is that this PLS screen is notably redder than the IPS screens I'm used to. It immediately reminded me of my old P-MVA monitor, though the PLS's redness is somewhere in the middle of the two.

Use this http://haruhichan.com/forum/showthread.php?7545-KCP-Kawaii-Codec-Pack

I spent a lot of time previously following guides on how to configure MPC, madVR, LAVFilters, etc... The above guide is a all-in-one installer with pre-configured settings you can choose from.

Thanks! I got it working yesterday though. I would highly recommend everyone to svp if they watch local video on their computer. Almost a big a difference as going from sd to hd (for me anyway). Simply awesome, never realized how choppy video was/is lol. The bad part? Now I don't want to watch videos on other mediums lol.

I did suggest it as an option, but the guide I linked is better as KCP does not contain the latest updates, and the "highest" madvr settings require fixing anyway, and because SVP requires ffdshow's raw post-proccessing abilities we need to do our own tweaking.

I do use KCP on my laptop though as I can't be bothered to find the best settings, but I find it's generally better to do this stuff yourself so you know what's going on and can tweak it as desired. Not to mention your own work is much more satisfying biggrin.gif
