I actually like how the casing on the Qnix looks. The style of the ridges that meet the panel are a really nice touch.

What cable did you get? I'm actually looking around for cable atm because I realized that there is no way I can get to a stable overclock without a high quality DVI cable. Even on wikipedia it says:

"Dual link maximum data rate is limited only by the bandwidth limits of the copper the DVI cable is constructed of and by the DVI signal's source."
The graphics card DVI ports also restrict the pixel clock to 330Mhz. Once you patch that with ToastyX's pixel clock patcher and get a high quality DVI cable then the PCB on the monitor is the limit.

Ok, looks like I'll get the ST warranties then. Thanks!

Got my QNIX QX2710 in today, ordered via Amazon and fulfilled by "MiseMet". It shipped yesterday via DHL from South Korea and arrived in Brooklyn the next day, even with a stop over in Ohio! Pretty amazing.

No dead or stuck pixels and BLB is not terrible, though similar to this post. 120hz was no go, but I'm currently rock solid at 115hz which is good enough for me. Coming from a 120hz TN panel, the ghosting difference is fairly noticeable but the colors and resolution more than make up for it.

I'm just hoping that the issues that cropped up with the 326.xx nVidia drivers do not recur. It would be kinda scary if this monitor suddenly stopped working with the latest drivers! Additionally, the patch by ToastyX probably needs to be continually updated, so that's another potential issue. Otherwise, I'm extremely satisfied with this purchase. I didn't even go for a pixel perfect monitor and it's flawless, but I probably got lucky.

Hey guys, I don't think the slightly yellowish tint bleed that we see on some of our Qnix/X-star monitors is backlight bleeding. I think it's PLS glow.
post #4767 of 25893
If it really is PLS glow then shouldn't it be on all PLS units, not just some of them?
post #4768 of 25893
The intensity of the glow could be a factor as to why these panels are in these budget 1440p monitors. Though, there are still some units that don't have any perceivable glow nor stuck pixels. nerdsmiley.png

Okay guys finally my QNIX from Ipsledmonitors.com arrived, and I am sad to say I got unlucky and received a bad one frown.gif

Poor overclocking capabilities, worse backlight bleeding than my previous QNIX, one stuck pixel in the top center of the screen, and whatever this is. At first it looks like a spec of dirt on the screen, so I tried wiping it off. No luck.



Upon closer inspection I fear for the worst. Is this what I'm afraid it is?


There are some small differences between this and my first QNIX I bought back in April but died on me not too long ago. The new one is built a little more sturdier. I still wouldn't consider it sturdy, but it doesn't creak when I try to tilt it and the panel play is much better, although still there a little.This one has "QX2710LED" in white letters in the top left bezel of the corner, where my first one doesn't. Different power brick, and a little different gloss finish on the bezel.

Looks like I am returning this one though frown.gif This may be the first bad one from Ipsledmonitors.com reported here. It's probably just bad luck, they seem friendly and helpful from their emails and I'm sure they'll want to remedy this. I'll let you guys know how the return process goes. It just sucks I'm going to have to wait a week or more for a replacement (remember that these monitors still actually ship from Korea even though you're dealing with a US company), especially because I can't be sure the replacement will be better frown.gif

But I guess I'm relieved in a way. If I bought this on eBay I would've been completely out of luck. I'm glad I can return and try again for free, but still... so much work and time involved!

As an aside, what's the actual difference between the X-Star and Qnix? X-Stars are more expensive than Qnixes with green-sum but they're cheaper with dream-seller. Not sure what to make of that.

It straight amazes me that no one seems to read through the OP.

I just did a quick search on this thread and the other. This question has been asked and answered over 30 times!!! doh.gif
