How you may ask? Qnix QX2710 (Pixel Perfect )


It's a PLS panel (which is just Samsung's version of IPS), though the pixels are different from IPS monitors. Some also think PLS has better colors than IPS.

From what I've seen most people easily hit 110Hz, if not 120Hz, as long as you don't have a garbage graphics card.

The bezel is of reasonable size, too bad it's glossy though, I'll be painting mine matte black. Also the anti-glare coating on the monitor is quite light and doesn't degrade the picture quality. Sooo much better than glossy if you ask me, and many others will agree.

Mine came with 1 dead pixel and 1 stuck pixel (likely the stuck pixel can be fixed), I ain't even mad though...the pixels are so god damn small it's quite hard to notice it. I don't have any backlight bleed on mine, some people have experienced bleed, but there is an easy fix.

The downside of the monitor is that the casing is cheap, which ain't that big of a deal to me. Although it is kind of annoying that you have to remove the back panel to take off the stem of the mount (if you want to put this monitor on a monitor stand with arms).

All in all, I'm really happy with mine. Definitely recommend it if you're in the market for basically the best bang for the buck/performance monitor you can buy right now. Also, the shipping from South Korea is so stupidly fast...48 hours, how is that possible? If you're worried about a warranty or it dying you can get a warranty from Square Trade for $50 for 3 year coverage.

Feel free to read user's opinions in the huge Overclock.net threads:
- Original Thread
- Overclock Results
- Monitor Club w/ Optimization Guides

TL;DR
Pros:
-27"
-1440p
-overclockable to 120Hz
-amazing colors
-cheap

Cons:
-cheap casing
-possible backlight bleed (though you can fix on your own)
-cheap monitor stand

What i usually do is just turn down other settings - but its up to you

so what about games that don't support 1440p? do they look like crap? thinking.gif

No that is controlled by your video driver not the game. All can run at native res whatever it may be. Some games may not 'support' more than 60Hz though.

Edit: At least I think I have that right. My games only now show 2560x1440 as an option and even Unreal 1 from 1998 can do it (though I haven't tried a ton of different games yet).

I got my "perfect pixel" QX2710 today (it had the red factory sticker on the box.) Well, it was perfect pixel for 30 minutes...and then a hot red pixel appeared almost dead center frown.gif I'm trying UDpixel (although I've tried this on a past monitor with zero luck,) and I've messaged the seller. Lets see where this goes.

Otherwise, background bleed isn't terribly bad, the stand and bezel are about as laughable as expected, and the IPS (well, I guess PLS) glow bothers me more than I was hoping it would. I was a die-hard CRT holdout for a while though so my eyes are just picky. The colors and lack of color shift over the TN panel I was just using is nice though.

green-sum. He (she?) has good feedback so I'm not too worried yet. The other thing I didn't mention, which I'm wondering if anyone else has encountered here, is that the power connector in the back of my monitor seems really loose. I have to wiggle the power plug until it is just right to get the monitor to power on with an audible "pop."

Im real close to order the QNIX one but before i do i would like to know how the motion blur are on them?
Atm i have an Eizo Foris FS2333, will i be able to notice any difference in games like BF3 and WoW with the QNIX?
And since it lacks an OSD menu does that mean that there's no input lag or have i gotten that wrong?
Also, do you guys think a i5 2500k (4.2ghz), 8gb ram and a windforce GTX670 2GB will be enough to play bf3 and wow at a decent fps with high/medium settings in 1440p?
And correct me if im wrong but i have read that with a 1440p monitor AA is something you won't need in games at that resolution, how come?
Thanks!<3

I can't answer all these but I can do some:
The lack of a scaler and OSD means there is much less input lag than almost all the other IPS/PLS monitors you can buy. There will still be some input lag - most say it is very very tiny though.

The CPU and RAM are enough. According to bit-tech:
Battlefield 3
2,560 x 1,600 4xAA 16x AF, ultra detail settings, DirectX 11
gets 38fps min, 45fps avg. At high/medium you should easily get above 60fps.

These monitors have a greater pixel density. More pixels close together means jagged edges are much less noticable, so you don't need anywhere near as much AA for smooth looking lines.

eh not too sure about that one. i play older games often and a good bit of them i can't run at 1920x1080 (or at least don't have the option to) unless i use a mod or a widescreen hack.
