^How come you didn't wanna use test mode?

There is a program to remove the 'test mode' watermark if that was what you didn't like...

The thing is, my monitor is kinda old. Its as I said, a SyncMaster 2693HM. But I still cant decide, if its worth the money to upgrade a monitor, that works 100%.

IMO it would be. The resolution would go up, but more importantly, you're going to be going to PLS/IPS tech. I've transitioned over to all IPS/PLS for every single one of my monitors, and whenever I'm forced to use a TN monitor, I want to shoot myself 'cause they never look right. Colour shifting, colour inversion, ugh. Pisses me off every time.

And, not only that, you'll have 2 monitors! Think of the extra "productivity" you could have! I mean, watching a movie while doing work... it'll be twice as efficient!

Bluray and other video software DRM checks for drivers don't like test mode.

Edit I take that back they don't like patched drivers. You could run test mode all day long. But can't run patched drivers and whole reason you have to use test mode is because of patched drivers.

It may be slightly overdone and im being just extremely picky and O.C.D. but my situation is this: I have my monitor on a monitor arm about two feet away me and Im laid back while Im using it. Don't like back or neck strain lol. The ips, for me, just has better quality. I don't know if this is because of the matte coating on the qnix or just a PLS thing in general. I'd like to know from anyone who has seen both matte and glossy, if they would care to share.

Kevinsbane, I've been stalking O.C.N from the shadows for a while lol, I saw an old post you made about your glossy qnix and a catleap 2b you had compared. You said you preferred the qnix to the catleap if I remember correctly. How do they compare?

Err...

Catleap 2B:
Better stand (but that's 'cause I got it mounted on a Ergotron MX arm)
Tempered glass makes it look slick, very slick.
Slight yellow tint.
Overclocks to about 115hz
Minor light bleed, top right and bottom left sides
contrast at about 750-850 (varies)
Uniformity on whites is good
uniformity on blacks is ok
buzzes at high overclocks + white colours on screen

Qnix:
Crappy stand - worse than the Catleap standard (which is crap)
Wish i got the matte lol
significant red shift
overclocks easily to 120hz
no light bleed
contrast varies from 900-1050
uniformity on whites is ok; overclocked, the right side darks noticeably
uniformity on blacks is very good

Both are calibrated with an i1d2 (not ideal, but it's what I got). The Qnix is harder to calibrate, and it doesn't calibrate as well as the Catleap. Comparing them to the U2312hm I have sitting next to them, the U2312hm has the best colour quality, both subjectively and via colorimeter.

Overall, the Qnix has the best combination of picture quality. The U2312hm is the best balanced monitor (if I *had* to choose 1 and only 1 monitor, I'd pick this one; but that's 'cause I want to use my laptop with my monitor), but in use, the Catleap has dominated, as I haven't bothered to swap stands and my desk simply can't fit 2x 27" monitors and a 23". So for now, the Qnix is unused until I find more room... If I played more games, I'd probably go with the Qnix and its overclock.

Thanks for the taking the time to reply....I got a perfect pixel matte with no light bleed that I could find and no pixel deformities, mine does 120 as well, wanna trade? lol

I have a AMD card so i could be wrong..But i think you can do like 96hz without patching a nvidia card..Anything over and you will need to patch drivers..Did you use CRU yet?
