Based on this plus what others have said ghosting is pretty much a non-issue and for those that do notice some it is far from a show stopper. BF3 looks so awesome now, especially once display is properly calibrated with a custom ICC. Try out a map like Armored Shield and you will see that this game actually has full and nice color! (yes some maps like Metro are still overall "blue").

That looks pretty normal to me (I have the QNIX glossy). It's hard to tell from a photo, make sure you are far back enough because the viewing angle effects how the BLB/GLOW is seen.

All I play is bf3 and I don't really notice any ghosting at 120hz..

My Qnix is coming today. I ordered on 7/24 from green-sum, pixel-perfect matte. Green-sum created a shipping label immediately but it looks like my order got held up for a few days getting "registered" and "released" from the "Clearing Agency."

I have my Monoprice 24AWG dual link DVI-D cable and 14AWG power cable ready to go. Going to see how many Hz I can hit tonight.

Rep+ to the OP for the ridiculously awesome first post. thumb.gif

I'm coming from a 1080p 60Hz TN 2ms LCD. That's going to be my second monitor now. I'm driving the monitors with 2 x MSI GTX 580 Lightning Xtremes (3GB VRAM) in SLI.

I'm a gamer and can't wait to see Borderlands 2 / Witcher 2 / BF3 / Mass Effect 3 and whatever else I'm playing on this monitor.

Thanks to all for the great posts and hard work to make these monitors such a top buy!

Also, I read earlier in the thread that different cables have different performance? Should I go for the 24AWG monoprice cable? I read through a lot of this thread but I didn't see a clear answer

Any news about your monitor? I also ordered my monitor from dream-seller on Thursday and haven't recieved any ebay message from them which seems bit odd. frown.gif Hope it wont take too long to ship to Finland..

FYI, I saw these PLS monitors on the front-page of SlickDeals.net last week, I can only imagine how many people bought one last week. who knows how many are even left...

Just got one of these stands for the QNIX: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005C29QN8/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

It's alright but it's definitely a bit cheap. The vesa screws were also too long, so I had to put a buffer between the vesa mount and the back of the display. The plastic nub that fits into the stock stand is now just hanging there and I'm guessing I have to remove the casing to get rid of it, but it doesn't really bother me.

Hmm. Reading Green-sum, it says that a displayport to DVI-D adapter won't work on them. I'm looking at getting a laptop with a DP, and I've read reviews of the active adapters working on 1440p monitors @120hz. Anyone have any experience with one here?
In progress.
