Hello all. After reading most of this thread I decided to order the following monitor.

QNIX QX2710 LED EvolutionⅡ 27" 2560x1440 WQHD PLS Computer Monitor *Matte

I ordered it from Green-Sum for $289.00

The monitor took 3 days to deliver to New York, USA. No additional costs.

The monitor has very minor back bleed and no dead/stuck pixels that I can see.

I was able to apply the Nvidia pixel clock patch and created two custom profiles at
96hz and 120hz. Both are selected via the Nvidia control panel. Both work without
any noticeable artifacts.

I am using an EVGA GTX 680 Classified ($449 at Amazon after $30 rebate).
In FarCry 3, I get around 33 fps with max settings at 2560x1440 @120hz.
I am using Adaptive Vsync.

So does it make any sense to dumb down the settings in FarCry to up the FPS to see the smoothness of 120hz?
It seems kind of counter productive. Btw, the 33 fps is playable for me. I have a Samsung 27" 275T and it
looks brighter and better color than this Qnix. I need a color profile for 60hz, 96hz, and 120hz. I tried doing
it by eye in the Nvidia control panel but I think one of the icc profiles floating around will be better. If someone
can link to the profiles that would be great. I'll search for them as well. I also have a 24" AOC 1920x1080 monitor
and I am going to try and setup a surround setup at 5760x1080. Hopefully the GTX 680 can handle it. It has
4GB Vram. I am running an i7 950@3.8ghz. I might have to buy another GTX 680 Classified for SLI. Anyways
long winded I know, but hope this helps someone with their buying decision. It might be a crap shoot, but it's for
real. Can't beat the price. Btw, the base does suck but it works and hopefully will last till I pick up a 3 way surround VESA mount.

MY

Monitor arrived in Texas from Korea in less than 40 hours. If you guys remember, I ordered the QNIX QX2710 DPort (multiple input) version by accessorieswhole. Bad news first...

Opened it up...and the monitor was X-STAR -__-

But after initial testing and setup...

EVERYTHING IS PERFECT

NO dead pixels
VERY LITTLE BLB
wobbly stand (expected)
Overclocked to 90hz with NVIDIA control panel (100hz doesn't work). However, it seems that the AD-Board may be skipping frames (still kinda choppy). Keeping it at 60hz~. Not going to test if it's actually 90hz cause I don't have the right equipment or the time.

Edit:
It is artifacting at 90hz...perhaps no overclocking. Doesn't matter though, as I got a really nice panel.

Got a personal note from from accessories whole...it seems like they not only opened it up, but also tested it as well. Strange, as I didn't order the pixel perfect version but got a pixel perfect monitor!

Will update with pix!

So you got the multiple input Xstar instead of the Qnix?So now we at least know for sure they can't really OC without frame skipping..Glad you got a good one even though it's the wrong brand although they are exactly the same..Let us know how it goes as I think you are the first one to buy a multiple input model.. smile.gif

Hey guys,

I've just finished my "tuning" of my QX2710.

At first I just took the case off to get the monitor stand off... Then I remembered having some rests of "PlastiDip" in matte black with which I painted my rims in matte black...

http://www.amazon.com/Performix-PLASTI-Mulit-Purpose-Rubber-Coating/dp/B005LDCXXS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1373397580&sr=8-1&keywords=plastidip+matte+black

So here we go:

I took a 320 Sandpaper and polished the case with it. I've taped the already matte area where the power led is on... didn't take a pic of that...!


Still a bit wet...


This is it when it was dry and put back on onto the TFT



Then I mounted it onto my HP VESA 100 Mount, so finally it looked like this


edit: added 2 higher quality pics!

I liked the QNIX before doing all this, but now I f****n LOVE IT! biggrin.gif

cheers

Nice idea and work. Matte bezel does match matte screen better too.
