I hope you have no reflective stuff near you at all. I'm not sure how big the difference between matte and glossy on these monitors is, but I've gone from glossy TN to matte X-Star and can say the lack of reflections is well worth any slight drop in IQ.

Glossy isn't a worry, I'm already using a glossy 1080p monitor. Lucky the positioning of window lighting in my room allows a lot of light in with very little screen glare in return, and if it becomes a real bother I have good blinds.

Dark #1 is what my monitor looks like to me in the dark most of the times.

Yes that is definitely very minor bleed, at least relatively speaking, especially considering photos usually make it appear worse. Loosening the screw on that end there could help too.

I assume using CRU and the 110Hz entry needs to be on the top of the list in that app. That is the default Windows will choose each boot.

Monitor 1

Monitor 2

I don't know; there is no specific (or noteworthy) "reason". There is a seller with smaller stock called AllKillSale who has them just over $400 last I looked. Lots of different sellers = some differing prices. Wise to shop around eBay as much as possible on any given day if you are looking to buy still.

So I have yet to take my bezel apart to try and fix BLB. I have however pried and pushed on the sections where the BLB is with completely no change.

I am assuming that the tape mod won't fix it and the issue actually comes from the metal casing the panel is housed in. I read somewhere in this thread at some point that this could also be bent and corrected. Any links or suggestions on how to do this?

Hmm, I am just using the dvi-d that came with the qx2710. Now at 120hz it is the issues are coming from the monitor. Lines start appearing and it I am scared to keep it at that refresh rate for more than a few seconds.

When I take it down to 110hz the only thing I notice is a semi-unnoticeable back image issue in the upper right hand corner of the screen. It' almost exactly like that same effect you see on some videos when they record a monitor where the screen seems to be flickering.

It just seems a lot faster and again it's only slightly noticeable and appears only in the upper right hand corner. I wonder if that specifically has something to do with the cable?

Hey guys,

Is anyone running a EVGA GT610 (02G-P3-2617-KR) with one Qnix Monitor? Or know if it runs?

Thanks.

Apparently the EVGA GT610 supports the following:

240Hz Max Refresh Rate
Max Analog : 2048x1536
Max Digital : 2560x1600 (Dual Link DVI Only)

I assume it has a DVI-I Dual Link input on it otherwise it wouldn't state that it supports it, so although I have no experience with that card, it should run it more than perfectly.

Seeing as I've run two monitors off my archaic 8500GT I think you should be fine.

I don't have a clue about the semi-unoticable back image issue you talk about but I do have the slight lines at 120hz (Very rarely during games only though) and I've purchased a very high quality cable and shall let you know if it improves or not. I don't see much difference from 110hz to 120hz though and it's slightly safer to run at 110hz anyway.

Thanks guys. I'm just worried cause the port picture doesnt look like the one I have in the back of my GT 610. And it says Dual DVI-I but not DVI-D.

The monitor states it only takes DVD-D

Is there a difference?

For you? No. Only if you run VGA monitors does it matter.

Already searched this thread, but it is obviously huge. Are these monitors generally considered better than the Catleaps that were so popular a while back? And if so, why?
Thanks
Mike
