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.

did you order matte or glossy

Yes No (Question was - Are the qnix and x-star the same?)
Yes
Read warranties and pixel policies. Combine squaretrade if you can for the price it is more than worth it.

Fixed that for you

The qnix uses the LG panel while the x-star uses the Samsung panel. Everything else about them is the same.

Also again the qx2710 is the only one I have seen to advertise a 6ms response time.

Not true

At least the panel part. I believe the PLS statement is correct though. It is Samsung's technology.

That brings up a good point that I haven't really thought about. I believe the general assumption in this thread is that the Qnix is a PLS panel when in fact it is NOT.

Wait are these X-STAR DP2710LED monitors 120 Hz? or after overclocking them you mean?

According to my seller "bigclothcraft" both are Samsung pls panels with 8ms response time.

The Qnix and Xstar are basically identical just with different branding. Pretty sure this has also been confirmed by others.

Again, I posted proof from a very reputable source.

If you believe you are truly right lets see the reputable counter-proof.

here are my panels, I personally debezelled and mounted... all samsung.

I'm at work right now, otherwise I would take a nice closeup shot as better proof.

Its pretty common knowledge that the qnix and xstar use the same panels, samsung PLS (It's not even really up for debate, am we being trolled or something?).
