You are looking to much into this motion blur statement. If you have been using LCDs for years you have already seen it and have gotten used to it. On a standard LCD monitor at 60hz with a scaler the motion blur i double or even triple as bad as the Qnix. You will likely not even notice it is there even at 60hz.

I just got a QNIX QX2710 today, ordered via Amazon (sold by MiseMet). It only took a day to ship all the way from South Korea to NYC, even stopping in Cincinnati.

I was lucky enough to get zero dead pixels and seemingly low BLB, but I haven't fully tested the latter yet. I didn't order a pixel perfect monitor either, so I think I just got lucky. I was not able to get it up to 120hz, after a few seconds both connected displays spaz out (the secondary is just a garbage 1080p Acer). I'm running at 110hz currently, though the secondary display shows some vertical lines on it. Oddly the QNIX is showing none.

Coming from a Samsung S27A950, I'm definitely noticing more ghosting but the colors are much better. It's an interesting tradeoff. I'm not sure which I actually prefer, but I'm certainly leaning towards the QNIX since it also has the resolution going for it.

I originally had the 326.19 nVidia drivers installed but those do not work with this monitor at all. You must use 326.01 or previous drivers. I went back to 320.49 WHQL, used ToastyX's patcher, and created the resolution in the nVidia control panel. ToastyX's CRU didn't seem to work for me, but perhaps I was using it wrong. I'll probably inch up towards 120hz a little at a time, but I'm currently satisfied with 110hz.

Highly recommended purchase!

how different is the pixel density vs that 32" samsung 1080p tv that you were coming from? (based on your sig)

p.s. remember to post a verification picture of your monitor (as stated in the members list application)

Check yourself for the difference on a PPI calculator.

Oh thats neat. I meant more of from a real-life perception though. Obviously, the density on a 27" 1440P monitor is way higher compared to a 32" 1080P screen.

Yeah no joke to the eye this is likely close to double the sharpness and clarity. thumb.gif

I have run into another sort-of issue since I have purchased this monitor. Prior to using this monitor, I have never heard the fan come on from my power supply. My power supply is running two MSI GTX 660ti in SLI with a 3770K at 4.2GHz, and my monitor is overclocked to 96Hz. My power supply is a Cooler Master Silent Pro M 850W, and I don't see why changing my monitor would make it work any harder. I'm only at the desktop, and I keep hearing the fan in the power supply coming on and off, and sometimes it just stays on like it's working hard. Has anyone else ran into this? Would this be a reason to RMA the power supply? It doesn't affect how the computer runs (yet), but it is definitely annoyingly loud. Thanks in advance.
