I live in an apartment building and when I am not there, the driver brings the package back to the station. I then have a time window between 7-9pm to pick up the package from the station later that day. I must call in before 7pm to notify them that I want the package held for pickup and not re-delivered the next business day. Sometimes, my neighbors that I am friendly with manage to catch the driver as he's ringing my bell when I'm not home and they hold the package for me. You can call and tell UPS that you want the package held at the station and you will come by and pick it up. If it's not a same day pick up from a missed delivery attempt, you have a 9am-9pm time window to pick up your package. Good luck! smile.gif

I also live in a apartment. The shipping method mine was sent through was UPS. You can get UPS to hold the package at your local UPS location. All you have to do is sign up for a account at ups.com. After that just login and track your package via the tracking number. You can then select change delivery and then select "hold for pickup".

It's pretty easy and I do this for most of my packages. As you already said you don't have to worry about having your packages sit at your door. I think the biggest plus to doing this is getting the package whenever it's convenient for you. The UPS truck usually doesn't come by until after 5pm at my apartment complex. So it always kind of sucks waiting around all day to get new goodies lol. When you have it setup for pickup however you have the option to get it the minute the UPS center opens.

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. Of course 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.

Like said above, make sure you have a good CPU/GPU for playing at 1440P. I don't have my monitor OCed at the moment because my single gpu isn't enough to get me 120fps consistently in games, and games still feel smooth to me. The only time i notice motion blur is when I try and twitch game in planetside 2.

I went through this as well, I had an Asus 144hz with lightboost and then got a 1440p crossover. I loved the resolution but couldn't stand the reduced framerate. I then got the Qnix and found it was indeed a best of both worlds situation. The resolution and picture quality are definitely there and the framerate from the Asus to the Qnix@120hz was marginal.

Can someone post a high resolution picture that has only the full size of the panel for both a semi-gloss and glossy PLS so that's it becomes easier to compare? I'm really indecisive on which of the two to get and I'm afraid that if i go for the semi-gloss i may end up with a spec behind the coating. Other than that I'm leaning towards matte since I sit next to a few windows.

I'm thinking of getting one of these to replace my 24" 120hz Asus. I'm just curious if these can easily be OC'd to 120hz, and whether or not I should ugprade to a 4gb card if I do get one. IUt's a ong thread, and didn't wanna dig through about the overclocking. I honestly have no idea how that works.
In progress.

Did you at least try digging through the first post?

Thanks for not answering the question. A yes or no would have been nice. I know they can be overclocked, but I'm wondering how simple it is and what the overall results from people here have been. My biggest concern is whether or not I should get a new card.

I think you have the sense of guilt backwards. Yes he could have said yes or no, but then the same question is answered for the 50+ time again. What would be nice is if newcomers would AT LEAST read the OP before asking redundant questions. So the sense of "not nice" guilt is actually on you. This concept is known throughout the entire internet on every popular forum.

So the answer is YES if you go back and actually read the information that has already accumulated in this thread you will find your answer in glorious detail repeated dozens of times.
