Expect the number of owners of these monitors to skyrocket now.

It isn't even on sale, it is regular price and has been that price for months. Funny how slickdeals works sometimes...

I hope this doesn't cause an increase in price. redface.gif

Also, has anyone come from a 5ms LCD to this? Did you notice any lag/blur?

I'm so tempted to get one now with the 10% Ebay coupon even though my Crossover isn't 3 month old yet. It would make it $252 shipped.

I'm considering pulling the trigger on a QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution ll 27" 2560x1440 WQHD PLS. To people who own it, how is it??? I also hope it lasts long but it's kinda too early for anyone to know that for sure.

Also I read some people don't trust the US adapter that goes into the power brick which goes into the monitor. I plan to OC it to 120hz using NVIDIA control panel.

So I decided to order a 2nd monitor to replace my Crossover 27 in LED that has a stuck green pixel near the middle of the screen. Hopefully, I will have better luck this time. I plan to use the Crossover as my 2nd monitor. I was wondering if it is possible to only overclock a single monitor as the Crossover wont support higher refresh rates than 60 hz, while the X-star/Qnix do.

Been using 2.2 for years until I tried using the sRGB gamma recently, dark details become easier to see and movies & TV shows look more natural

Just changed my profiles to this, v nice, thanks

My Initial impressions so far:
  • This monitor looks fantastic! I did NOT pay for the pixel perfect guarantee, but there are no dead, stuck, bright pixels. However, on the top left of the monitor there are 2 "lines" (they are quite wide, like a quarter of an inch) that are brighter than the rest of the display. However, this is really only noticeable in stock images in which the top left is a primarily solid colour. I do not notice it at all while gaming. Also,
  • There is no black light bleed! I took paint, made an all black image and full-screened it, and I actually couldn't see any bleeding.
  • Yes, the monitor and casing isn't the greatest, but I got lucky in that my screen isn't crooked and doesn't' really come away from the bezel. It will in some areas if I apply pressure, ]but that is very minor.
  • I have never had a high Hz monitor or a PLS monitor, so I really don't notice the ghosting that much that people talk about while playing games.

In regards to overclocking, at 96Hz it looks fantastic. At 110Hz I can see what sort of appears to be a faint flickering of the lines. At 120Hz I get red and green lines. Interestingly, I flashed a new bios for my graphics card to increase the core and memory clocks (Have a Gigabyte 7970OC, flashed the GHz bios because this is the only way to get a higher voltage on this card) and the flicker at 110Hz and 120Hz got WORSE. This is a little disappointing, but overall I still can't complain.

Have you tried using the LCD reduced settings in CRU?

I had flickering lines at 120hz but was able to fix it using the LCD reduced profile.

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Isn't that picture comparing apple to oranges? I would assume something of that caliber would distort images at a distance but that's not how it's being used. It's being used pressed directly against a flat surface displaying images. Putting that coating against a picture and comparing the two would be a much more relative example.

That said the picture on my matte anti-gloss qx2710 is at least 10 times noticeably better and sharper looking that my old VG278H.

As said above, I came from 120hz 2ms VG278H to the qnix qx2710 that is supposedly 6ms.

Honestly I notice no difference in response times or ghosting. Some claim they do and maybe that's true but I wouldn't even start to worry about going from 5ms to 6ms.

Considering selling a perfect shimian for this.. but this seems to have a lot of issues compared to the IPS ones.

Does it seem like all properly set-up monitors can reach at least 96Hz?

And this burn in thing - my Shimian does that when overclocked too. It corrects itself after 10-30 minutes, but it is far from minor. Does this go away over time [E.G. it stops burning in altogether?]

Yes. I prefer to be at 96Hz at the desktop, but once my monoprice 24awg cable arrives, I'll be using 120Hz with specific games.
