How long did it take for your orders from IPSLEDMONITORS.com to ship? I ordered my QNIX on the 24th and haven't had any shipping email.

Getting one of these tonight. I know both monitors are the same, but which seller would you guys recommend? Cost isn't much different. I'll be getting the SquareTrade warranty as well.

Qnix from green-sum
X-Star from dream-seller

Thanks!

May I ask why you are going for the glossy? I'm kind of torn between the semi-gloss's reflection elimination and the glossy's slightly higher clarity.

Sometimes I wish there was an electronic method for introducing a semi-gloss finish at the topuch a button during the day or when lights are on. I can see something like that in future monitors though.

I'm going glossy for the supposedly deeper blacks and sharper text. There's also the fact that dust could potentially be trapped behind the matte film from the factory.

The only pro of the matte screen is the anti-glare, but I have blackout curtains that will take care of that.

On that note, how is the glossy screen working out for those of you with back-lit keyboards?

I just received my Qnix from Dream-seller today. It took less than 24hrs after payment for Dream-seller to ship and the monitor arived in 4 days post shipping. I ordered a Glossy Perfect Pixel and received zero stuck/dead pixels, minimal blacklight bleed(only visible on completely black screen) and is stable up tp 126Hz. Looks like i got a winner! thumbsupsmiley.png

I have a glossy Shimian and a backlight logitech keyboard. When I work at night I don't really see the reflection of the leds on the screen if that's what you mean. I'm on the highest brightness setting to.

I just followed a few of the wallpaper links in the OP and spent hours downloading wallpapers I thought were awesome. Some obviously wern't shot nativley in 1440p though so I only made sure to download the ones that really stuck out on this monitor.

Now I just have them all in a folder with the wallpaper rotation set to 30 seconds. I can literally just sit and stare for hours. thumb.gif

HERE is a few of the best ones that I have found.

How did you set the overclock? NVCP? CRU? Have you done any tweaking? If you just set it in the NVCP and didn't use LCD reduced or something and got that high that is a very good screen(pretty close to mine)
