post #3671 of 25888
Hmm, any advice on what I should buy guys? I was thinking of picking the QNIX QX2710 monitor from green sum but wasnt sure if I should take the risk and buy the non perfect pixel edition for $290 or the perfect pixel edition for $310. I know that green sum doesn't consider dead/dark pixels as a dead pixel in the perfect pixel version, but the guarantee of no bright pixels sound kind of worth it. Not sure if it will justify the cost of spending $20 more because it seem like bright/stuck pixels are very rare to find on these monitors. Any advice or input would be much appreciated. Thanks.

It's only $20 difference.. For $20 me personally I would get the perfect pixel just to set my mid at ease.. When I bought mine the perfect one was $75 more so I went with regular one.. You know if you got the cheaper one and it had bright pixels you would be kicking yourself everyday you looked at it for not paying the extra $20..

I can't seem to overclock now as well as before. I had 7970's but now I have one GTX 780.
Before I could do 120hz now about 110hz..

Its funny everyone on here that said nvidia should be better clocker. This also confirms the GPU has just as much to do with the overclock as the screen does.

I'm not so sure that the PP monitors have actually been inspected.. At least on dream-seller's page they say they'll refund you $5 for each dead or stuck pixel, which doesn't tell me that they know it's a perfect monitor. When I opened mine up there was zero evidence that it had been inspected previously, I think it's just a marketing ploy. Needless to say, I bought the PP version anyway rolleyes.gif

Still using CRU?

I can't see why NV would clock better across the board. It's perhaps *easier* to do so not needing any third party help. Though it could turn out CRU is the superior and more reliable method (even without fine-tuning any values) especially if the answer to my above question is no.

And I think some more testing as well as more cases besides your own would be warranted before anything can be 'confirmed' either way. I have a GTX 480 I could try...

Yeah, that's exactly what I was thinking, that it's a marketing ploy since there's been a few members that bought the $290 non pixel perfect one and received it without any pixel imperfections.

Good point, I guess I'll just shell out the extra $20. Bright pixels would be really annoying because I'd see it all the time and I'd be regretting the purchase and not paying the extra $20 for that guarantee so that I can have free exchanges if I happen to get a bad monitor.

Guess I'l make the purchase within the next few hours!! Thanks guys.

Does anyone know if EMS works throughout the weekend too? It'd be crazy if they did cause I'll have the monitor at my doorsteps by Monday or Tuesday if they did.

And should I request for bubble/foam wrapping outside of the box ? Or is that something they automatically do?

alright guys, so just received my QNIX today. the good news is i dont have any dead pixels! the bad news is, i have some bad BLB:



the camera makes it look worse than it appears, but you can see where the bleed is coming from. so before i try to fix it, what the do you guys think the issue is here?

Perhaps bent frame however though those spots are near the two outer screws so I would try loosening those first. Usually we see two inner spots on the bottom that the inner two screws can address.

New member here.

I ordered a ONIX OX2710 Matte from green-sum on Sunday afternoon, and it was delivered Wednesday morning (yesterday). I was finally able to unbox and test it today smile.gif.

The entire package was well protected in 2-3 layers of bubble wrap and arrived without any visible damage.


The ONIX was surprisingly light yet sturdy considering its size. I didn't bother with assembling the stand because I am planning to run the monitor on a dual vertical stand along with my HP ZR2740w. It will take the place of the ASUS VG248QE that can be seen in the pics below. The stand is expected to arrive on Friday (tomorrow). Powering on the monitor revealed minimal BLB, very uniform colors across the panel, and only one stuck pixel (stuck at green). I guess I got lucky biggrin.gif.


The default color settings out of the box was actually very good; it was very similar to the HP that was using a color calibration profile from TFTCentral. I may just not bother with color calibration on the QNIX.


The amount of BLB was also very similar to the HP during my quick comparison, although it was difficult to tell due to the room being brightly lit an causing too many reflections on the screens. I will do the comparison again in the near future in a darker environment.


Note that on the last two pics, the QNIX is at a weird angle because it is only standing on its stub and leaning against the ASUS behind it.

I was able to overclock the ONIX to 96Hz from the nVidia Control Panel very easily (just add custom resolution and you're done, as others have mentioned). I haven't tried any higher yet (since CRU is required), but I plan to do so after I get it properly set-up on the stand. I will also do some more comparisons with the HP and the ASUS, such as BLB in darker environments, ghosting/response time, input lag, and color calibration.
