[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 472

post #4711 of 25893
Hey guys if you all want to see something outright mesmerizing try winamps milkdrop. Just tried it today on this monitor and it is pretty awesome to see @ 120hz.

I received my Qnix QX2710 Evolution II on 22 July 2013, and after a couple days of playing with the monitor, here is my experience. I purchased my monitor on Amazon from a seller called MNW Global for $312 shipped. I ordered midday on Thursday, 18 July and it was at my door in Surprise, Arizona on 22 July at 5:45PM. As far as I know, I haven't heard of anyone in this thread purchasing this monitor from Amazon and I chose this seller because they only had good reviews from the few that purchased from them. They emailed me to ask for my phone number because it was required for shipping, and as soon as I emailed them back, the monitor was ready for shipping just a few short hours after ordering.

As you can see, I got received a pixel perfect monitor with some backlight bleed at the bottom of the screen, which honestly looks worse in the pictures than it actually is, but it is there.

Overclocking:

I'm running this monitor with 2 MSI GTX 660ti Power Edition OC in SLI on stock clocks. Without installing anything except the latest WHQL driver which is 320.49, I was able to overclock this monitor to 96Hz without any problems. Anything higher, and the monitor would crash. After placing Windows 8 into test mode and installing the pixel clock patch, I was able to get to 120Hz, but had artifacts when playing World of Warcraft. I'm pretty sure I can easily get to 120Hz if I really tried, but the display is gorgeous even at 96Hz, so I'm not really compelled to try. Haven't tried any refresh rates in between.

Impressions:

Purchasing this monitor from MNW Global through Amazon was a great experience. Only took a couple days to get from South Korea to my door, and it would have arrived sooner had I not ordered right before the weekend. Be advised, the stand and bezel are extremely cheap, and tilts ever so slightly. However, the display is gorgeous and I can instantly see the difference from going from my old primary monitor which was a 27" Asus VS278Q-P 1080p 60Hz, to this 27" 1440p 96Hz. I also purchase the Squaretrade warranty through Amazon which covers electronics up to $399 for $46. If you have any questions about my experience, please feel free to ask or message me and I'll get back to you as quickly as I can. Please forgive me if any of this sounds weird as I am a little tipsy as I type this. I also wanted to add that I tried to install the latest 326.19 Beta drivers from NVidia, but the monitor would not run. Thanks!

EDIT: Fixed arrival date.

We did get side tracked a bit by a mis-reading of a model number is really what is comes down too. In the end we found the error and corrected it.

On a side note i am thinking of running this monitors power connector through a converter and powering it via molex off the computers PSU to get a bit more stable power and lower the operating cost(per wattage).

Any thoughts? smile.gif

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.

First off, that video has some errors (as noted in the link to it in the OP, under "reviews"). The only good parts I see in that video, are the notoriety and positive recommendation.

They are PLS panels. Go to the OP, look at any of the videos where they take the monitor apart., or look at the expandable section "How to solve Panel Play and an off-center/cut-off screen" and look for my personal post there with accompanying picture of the samsung label and serial number on my panel.


edit: didn't read the 6 posts clarifying this issue until after I posted this. Capt. Overkill reporting for duty gunner2.gif

That would be interesting. Obviously for starters you would need a PSU that is overpowered for a given system. I can just imagine the already tangled wire mess of a computer case with the addition of this

I have this guy

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182188&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-pla-_-Power+Supplies-_-N82E16817182188&gclid=COHr-9SyybgCFctAMgod_WcAVA

I think it should be plenty to add a screen given the AMP load on each rail and the standard power capacity of a molex connector.

This is a possibility that would definitely work however the monitor does not require near that much power to operate on a 12v current so even a 250watt power supply would be quite a bit of overkill. Plus my objective is to create a more efficient setup and a bit of clutter reduction.
