I've been super happy with my X-Star, best monitor I've ever had, the colors are amazing. My fiancée and I LOVE watching movies on it, and games look amazing as well.
Posts like this get me really excited to get my monitor all setup.

Yes, thus far they've been nothing but exemplary, even going as far as measuring the monitor for me (I asked here a couple of times and no one answered).

Did you order an X-Star or Qnix?

I had a s27a750D (120 mhz 3D, samsung 1080p) which met with a unfortunate death in the hands of a flying PS3 controller.

SO I picked up a QNIX 2710, DPORT.

I watch TV, and PS3 on hdmi, and use dport for pc.

so far using displayport, and on stock (no drivers patch) AMD 7970, best I can manage is 85 mhz.

Its not fluid as my old TN monitor but not bad for the price.

Also scaling on the hdmi port is meh, but useable.....maybe 750D did a better job, or maybe just 1080o to 1080p was easier vs 1080i to this monitors res.

I got it from ebay had it in 1 day, lol, with time difference, it left 6am got here by 7 pm.

for $360 not bad at all.

I just received my QNIX from green-sum. Everything seems to be great so far (waiting for it to be PM). But I realized that the font at 1440p is like...super small. What PPI do you guys use??

Not PPI but DPI. You can either turn the DPI setting to 125% which will make all of the windows UI bigger or change the font size for each text item in advanced appearance settings.

DPI
1. START
2. control panel
3. display
4. Set custom text size(DPI)
5. Chose a size and do some trial and error

Font size(try this first my opinion)
1. right click
2. personalize
3. windows color
4. advanced
5. under the "item" drop down select each field and check if their is a font size.
6. change each font capable windows object up 1 or 2 points (trial and error)

This is windows 7 but others will be similar.

Cheers thumb.gif

Thanks man, changed all the font sizes from 9 (FONTS FOR ANTS!?) to the standard 12, and things are much better. I still kinda lol at the subtitle sizes in video games like Deus Ex.

I am deciding on the color dept at the moment. The older Achieva Shimian, I have read, has 1.07billion color dept as opposed to a majority of other Korean 2560x1440 monitors, which have 8bit 16.7million color depth. Is this true or is it just mis-labeled? Is there a way to get 10bit 1.07billion color depth even though a monitor is listed as 8bit 16.7million color depth, such as the Qnix?

This is not mislabeled and no you cannot. However unless you have a 10bit video card (like a firepro or quadro card) there is not point since you cannot render that depth anyway thus having a 10bit panel is not going to present any real world or visible quality improvement. If you got out some professional color test tools to test this any actual difference would be mitigated by the difference in quality from a IPS panel to PLS panel. You have to have an entire chain of 10bit for 10bit to be possible. Also you desktop color in actually an upconverted(in a sense for you graphics pros) anyway thus 16 or 32bit color.

Thanks for the reply. That sucks, now I need a firepro or quadro card.

Edit: On second thought, I realize they aren't really the average graphics cards. Don't really feel like replacing my GPU everytime I play a game, so I guess I will have a pass at the Achieva Shimian. I do digital imaging, so I thought the 10.7billion color might be a phenomenal addition.

So even the multi-input ones ain't good for consoles in the end? I also have a PS3 (and a PS4 possibly) I want to use with my monitor, but from what you say I'd probably be better off with a true 1080p monitor...bummer.
