Not really, i have seen it tested side by side and although there is a benefit it is like i said comparable to the difference between IPS and PLS. I will say that AH-IPS is superior to PLS after a professional calibrator is used and the 10bit addition would be another positive but not worth a professional GFx card.

If you wanted the best possible setup in colors and response in my opinion would be an AH-IPS screen 10bit straight through with the overlord PCB to overclock to 120hz. It has also been noted that IPS screens don't suffer as much(if any) as PLS in color degradation at overclock speeds. Overall the Qnix is about saving money and getting a crazy bang for your buck factor(with some work) though.

Its perpectly useable....for ps3 and tv.....its just I had a really great monitor I was comparing it to.

It doesnt look low res or anything like that. Its just not as fluid...I play tekken which has lots of just frame moves, and from the 2 ms TN to this I miss some just frame moves.

but if I had another $200 to burn, id prolly get my 120mhz TN over again vs this.




Some help please

I have this on 100 bright and 100 contrast......anthying less and it looks washed out or too dark ? is this normal ?

thanks

Got my Qnix PLS and very happy no dead pixels or anything. Can't seem to OC it but? When i add custom profiles in CRU and restart i can't see the resoloutions in my driver control panel after. I'm in test mode already.
Also is there a driver for this?

Cheers

1. did you patch your driver?
2. there is a catleap driver we have been using to get games to better see the overclock refresh rate but it should no way effect you here.

Yeah i did patch it and its in test mode.

1. make sure it is set to the monitor with an * nest to it in teh drop down menu and not a duplicate entry
2. apply the resolution, close CRU, re-open it and see if it states (restart required)
3. make sure "include extension block" is unchecked
4. try using the NVCP just to see
5. try a lower overclock like 70hz to see if that works
6. try re-installing the monitor drivers(NOT GPU drivers) and try again
post #4417 of 25893
Yep unchecked include extension block and all G now. Running at 110hz and very happy. Only thing is my brightness i think changed a bit. Anyone know any good colour profiles to play with?
Also with calibrating my monitor am i doing it driver side as the monitor doesn't have any settings on it?
Cheers

There are some color calibration profiles in the OP. Most still lead to valid links, i assume.

If you calibrate the monitor, you GET a custom color calibration profile not a driver. Only one color calibration profile can be active at a time, so it is better to calibrate it yourself than use icc profiles of other monitors.

Hey everyone,

I made a thread a couple days ago about a problem I was having with the monitor, and to let everyone know how the process with SquareTrade went.

You can find the thread here.

Well, the repair center received my monitor today and SquareTrade decided to reimburse me for the full amount. If they reimbursed me for something as small as a bad DVI port on the monitor, I'm sure that they'll most likely just reimburse you for this monitor for any problem. (Maybe due to the fact that it's a Korean monitor?)

Anyway I'm not sure if this is good or bad news. I won't be getting my monitor back, so that means I'll be putting the refund towards another QNIX or X-Star. Which means I have to play the lottery again. This QNIX had one stuck (green) pixel in the top right corner of the screen, noticeable backlight bleed (made worse from the panel play), and could barely handle 120hz (in some games I got scan lines every now and again, others I didn't). Even though I could of had better luck with another one, I was happy it wasn't worse. I bought it in mid-April, only a couple weeks after we caught on to these monitors. I bought it from Hulustar (the supposed batch of the first 100 monitors that were pixel perfect).

I'll be buying from an actual pixel perfect listing this time, but I have a few questions first.

1.) Is there currently any one seller that's doing better than the others right now (everyone buying from them lately has reported theirs to have no dead/stuck pixels or better at overclocking, or is currently going for cheaper)?

2.) I've read that there is none, but do we know of any difference between QNIX and X-Star (is one better at overclocking)?

3.) What does pixel perfect actually mean? I've seen that some sellers consider it up to a certain amount of dead/stuck pixels, or no dead pixels but some stuck pixels. Are there any pixel perfect listings that mean there will be 0 dead or stuck pixels?

I guess I'm just worried that my next monitor will be worse than the last one.

Thank you!
