You know I was kind of thinking that was the case in hindsight because the differences in response times between the qx2700 and the qx2710.

Good to know that I wasn't completely wrong. I knew there was some truth to it some where.

I did a little data mining from The Korean PLS Monitor Club (as of yesterday) before I bought, here are the results:

There are 131 QNIX owners who reported a refresh rate. Of those 131 there were 73 that reported a refresh rate of 120Hz or better (55.7%)
There are 27 X-Star owners who reported a refresh rate. Of those 27 there were 14 that reported a refresh rate of 120Hz or better (51.9%)

40 people bought their QNIX monitors from green-sum. Of those 40, 35 reported a refresh rate, and of those 35, 18 reported a refresh rate of 120Hz or better (51.4%)
43 people bought their QNIX monitors from dream-seller. Of those 43, 33 reported a refresh rate, and of those 33, 23 reported a refresh rate of 120Hz or better (69.7%)

I went with green-sum because of the slightly higher seller rating and because the return policy seems better than dream-seller's. In particular, this turned me off to buying from dream-seller:
"Please note that we cannot accept returned goods whose retail box has been opened. In such circumstances, we will notify you that no refund will be available and you will be responsible for arranging for such goods to be returned to you within 30 days of our notification."

What is a good stand for a triple monitor setup with these? 1 single stand or 3 individual ones?

Hey guys. This thread actually motivated me to create an account here, so hello!

Anyway, I finally decided to get one of these korean monitors, but I have a concern that my old GPU may not be enough for these monitors. I believe it can support dual link DVI since it can support resolutions up to 1600p (I'm hoping someone can double check just in case, though--also, if it's the correct DVI). Will this GPU be enough for browsing the web and watching some movies on these monitors? I don't plan to use this computer for gaming as you can already tell by its GPU.

Thanks to your write up on reddit, I ordered a pixel perfect 2710 from green sum after I read your reddit post.

One question I have. In the FAQ section in the OP of this thread, it says:
Quote:
Q: Will I be able to notice the response time and/or input lag (especially in gaming)?
A: Many users, myself included, have noticed motion blur during FPS gaming (such as planetside 2). It would be even more noticeable in 'twitch' gaming. It is fine for regular use (Leauge of Legends, Guildwars 2, etc.), but gaming professionals should look elsewhere.

This monitor has a 8ms refresh rate, and is overclockable to as high as 120Hz. At 8ms refresh rate, that is 125 frames a second (1000ms / 8ms = 125 frames/s). Why would it still have motion blur? Is it because 8ms isn't really 8ms? Something I am missing?

This probably doesn't answer your question, but:

Display refresh rate is measured in Hertz, i.e. 60 Hz or 120 Hz.

The 8ms you are referring to is response time.

Motion blur is an artifact of liquid crystals taking a finite amount of time to "switch" to show a different colour. So long as a pixel takes a finite amount of time to change, and so long as the pixel remains lit throughout the transition time, monitors will have motion blur. As a pixel transitions from, say, red to blue, it goes through several different colours over the period of up to 8 ms - these colours show up for up to 8ms and result in blurry motion.

LightBoost monitors overcome this by not having the pixels constantly lit, and rely on a synced light pulse which light the pixel only when it has completely transitioned - thus, no motion blur.

This is another reason i thought it would be neat to see someone play around with AMD overdrive as it is another form of compensation for this color change delay. Good description couldn't have said it better.
