Lighted reflections yes. I make my PC room dark when gaming.

I'm curios to see the pixel response time lag too, with light boost and everything.

I'm torn between these Korean 2710's and the 144hz ASUS TN monitors.

So it won't really help for sunlight @ 5500K ~ 6500K reflections? I have my center monitor perpendicular to my windows but the side monitor is at an angle so it reflects the sunlight when the light is the brightest so the glare makes the monitor quite useless unless I close the blinds.

Does the contrast/color saturation have any appreciable difference compared to the full-gloss version?

Thanks.

Matte finish would help with most sunlight color temperatures. I have not seen a comparison of these monitors glossy vs matte. But i posted a comparison of a LED a few pages back. It shows pic quality difference and reflection properties.

Other than that this thing is great! A little BLB and a bright pixel in the far left corner. I think it's a keeper.

I spent a lot of time lurking this thread, you guys all helped me out.Thanks! Glossy Panel is GLOSSYThose that are considering glossy, here is my best attempt at a picture. It is very reflective as you can see. If you have a lot of light coming from behind you I would consider a matte.

Verified, thanks! Welcome to the club. another satisfied risk-taker thumb.gif

I have a question about the pricing of these monitors. All these ebay sellers have the same monitor for different prices. It is not just "perfect pixel" or matte vs. glossy. From reading the title and the description, two different listings appear to be the same monitor except one is more expensive than the other. Are the actually the same monitor with different prices or are there tangible differences?


$389.90 perfect pixel, glossy
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-PLS-2560x1440-WQHD-Monitor-/140963404028

$347.90 perfect pixel, glossy
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-WQHD-2560x1440-PLS-Monitor-/140963404007

Another question is, since this LCD is overclockable, is there any reason to buy the Yamakasi q270 2b overclock model, which is at $600?

Thanks for your help.

Looks the same to me. Yes the QNIX QX2710 is overclockable and there should be no difference between the QNIX QX2710 and the Yamakasi Q270 2B model in terms of their overclockability.

The QNIX QX2710 is a Samsung PLS panel which is arguably superior to IPS panels like those used in the Yamakasi and Apple Cinema displays.

So these panels run on 12v. You could always run these off a psu maybe if it has a voltage boost to counteract droop like a seasonic or a turbocool maybe it might help stabilize the overclock?

Well I just unboxed my Xstar to test it out on my newly built rig (partially there, still need to sort out cables and install second graphics card etc)

Just installing windows and drivers at the moment.

First impressions are that build quality is pretty good. The stand actually isn't bad at all. Thought I had a couple of dead pixels but turned out to be some Korean dust. Lol

So no dead pixels that I can tell but I haven't been looking hard.

I do have some backlight bleed that I noticed on the windows loading screen but nothing I would deem excessive and became much less noticeable when I turned the brightness down a bit.

So it's early days and lots more testing to do but so far I'm in love! Haha. Wife even said to me it looks great why dont I buy 2 more. Lol.

I bought mine from bigclothcraft whose communication was excellent and they answered all my questions before I ordered. I'd highly recommend them.
