[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 487

post #4861 of 25891
Hmm just got into counter strike, having a good time. I feel 1440p 120 hz would be in order for this game. Excuse found! Will more of these PLS monitors pop up in the coming months? I just don't like the casing. And I'm not good enough with my hands and tools to debezel en build own casing and whatnot.

does anyone know exactly what the dc connector size is that powers these screens? I'm looking to order some connector tips, and wire it up to a molex connector to power the screen via my psu.

So I got an ASUS VE278Q right now as my primary monitor... looking to upgrade to the QNIX QX2710 LED as my primary and move the VE278Q to my secondary... I'm looking at ebay for value... I see http://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-2560x1440-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-/140934439651?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20d058e2e3 and http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Glossy-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-ll-27-2560x1440-Samsung-PLS-Panel-Monitor-/321099912197?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4ac30bd405 as valid options... the first link is a dollar cheaper and comes with a plug-in adapter to use the monitor with a north American plug-in, and the seller has better feedback... but the second link is the more common choice among people it seems... but why would I want to pay a dollar more and have to buy a plug in adapter with dream-seller over green-sum? So many options... I'm also leaning towards glossy over matte as I have a lamp BEHIND my monitor that lights the room that I am in, so reflection doesn't seem like it would make a huge issue. The Asus VE278Q that I'm using is Matte, and I've used glossy in the past and the "vividness" of glossy seems like it would be a better option, especially seeing as the main lighting in my room is coming from behind the monitor... I'm pretty torn of where to buy from and why at the moment. I'm in Canada, and I suppose I probably can't go wrong with either ebay seller... just looking for some advice before I take the $300 plunge... thanks. I'm using a single Radeon HD 7970 as my graphics card at the moment, OC'd to 1175 MHZ and 1575 MHz memory if that makes a difference...

Everything that I've been hearing about 1440p over 1080p makes me believe that I've been missing out (I've never had the opportunity to actually see a 1440p screen)... and I came from http://www.ncix.com/products/index.php?sku=19235&vpn=FP241W and then http://www.amazon.com/Sony-BRAVIA-KDL-46EX500-1080P-46-Inch/dp/B0035ER1IM as my main monitors over the last five years... and well, the Asus is complete garbage compared to both of those as main monitors... it took me at least three months to get used to the terrible colors on the asus, despite all of the positive reviews... and I do miss zero back light bleeding compared to the asus... but I suppose a small amount wouldn't hurt in turn for other advantages... I had to sell the Sony Bravia as I moved to the other side of Canada and couldn't afford to move the TV with me... but with a lot of anti-aliasing, it was the best computer monitor that I ever had, even if it was "just 1080p." From what I have read, the 27" QNIX sounds like a major step up... am I wrong to think this?

Sorry, I thought the asus was 1440p as well. Wow big ass monitor for sure! And then you have people compalining about seeing pixels on 27 inch 1080p tongue.gif I would go for it then.

I've got the Asus vg248 running at 144hz and lightboost enabled, but I want 1440p too, so I ordered the QX2710. Once I evaluate games and overall quality of the 2710, I'll decide whether I'll keep the asus or sell it and get another 1440p.

I do not own any of these monitors but I've read quite a bit of this thread to decide wether or not to buy one. And it seems that many buy these monitors for gaming and are satisfied it becuase if the resolution and beautiful colors. Ofcourse there us as much motion blur as any other ips( I know this is PLS) but there is the added benefit of overclocking out of the box and so the potential of reducing motion blur a lot if you have the graphical horsepower to run the games fps close to the refresh rate.

I have a question about shipping for those who have ordered one already. I live in an apartment, and I'm worried about having the monitor left in front of the door where it might get stolen. USPS is the only shipping method that will leave the packages at the office, and I doubt any of the sellers ship it that way. Has anyone had theirs held at the nearest shipping center (FedEx/UPS/etc.) for pickup?
