Googled squaretrade, doesn't work in europe I guess? Debezelling might be nice. Also is this screen matte or glossy? And how would these compare to the new batch of simians and crossovers, which are very sleek looking my god : http://www.overclock.net/t/1400740/crossover-black-tune-2735amg-achieva-shimian-qh2700-lite-edge-club

As a glossy QNIX owner. You guys should really invest in microfibre cleaning cloth:

Even the slightest smudge will be painfully obvious on a glossy screen. I made the mistake of touching the screen a few times when I was setting my monitor up. I had to spend 10 minutes buffing each smudge out. Its like they never go away. Anyway +1 for microfibre, DONT USE A T-SHIRT LOL:thumb:

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!

Just a small update. Ipsledmonitors is paying for return shipping (UPS) to their return shop in California. Once they receive it, they will be shipping a new monitor from S. Korea again. As happy as I am about the ability to return it, I'm going to wait another week or more for the next monitor to get here, and like I said before, with no guarantee it will have less issues. So unlucky sad-smiley-002.gif

Just be happy you don't have to ship it to korea...

I am, or have to pay for it for that matter. But I've already spent $30 on the SquareTrade warranty on the first one, and $40 more to buy from Ipsledmonitors (plus another $30 for when I get a good one I'll put SquareTrade on that one too). I'm just thinking how much more time/effort/money am I going to have to spend until I get a relatively good one? I'm a patient and forgiving guy, but going weeks without a monitor and spending way more than I planned is starting to hurt a little. I think it's a reasonable complaint, although it's nobody's fault. I won't abandon these monitors though!


Edit: Maybe I'll have better luck if I ask them to send me an X-Star instead (as they are having a better batch of those apparently) , but I'm a little reluctant because they are rumored to have different PCB's and a little less overclocking capability.

I highly doubt it - I think someone found that Qnix and X-Star were registered at the same address, and producing a single PCB is much more efficient than 2 separate ones, and I doubt that in the sea of different Korean monitors it is these 2 different PCBs which have OC capabilities.
Statistically then there's the fact that "a little less" means nothing when you see the amount of variation these monitors have anyway. And I'm running my X-Star at 120Hz biggrin.gif so no need to worry.

That's awesome to hear. I just ordered from Ipsledmonitors today.
