Which one did you get? The QNIX has zero adjustments which is why I bought a separate stand for it. In the mean time I just propped the back of the stand on a book to get it level.

Oh what.. owell, it's not something I'm worried about too much. I guess in the meantime I'll use a book like you suggested.

This actually props me into a good posture, which I don't mind at all. haha

If you talking about it tilting away from you and you want it to be tilted back to where it is straight up, then yes it can do that. I just recently got my Qnix and it came out of the box with it tilted away from me.

Like you, I was being gentle with it and didn't want to force anything so I just accepted the fact that the stand was damaged somehow during shipping and figured I could always prop it up on a book to level it out. Even though I had read in this thread that it can be tilted. Once I had everything setup on my desk, the tilt got to me and I just forced it to level out by pushing down from the top of the monitor with both hands, tilting it towards myself and I heard a loud snap. I thought I had broken the stand but turned out I didn't. The stand still wobbles cause its cheap but its standing up straight and true.

So, yes it can be tilted. It just takes a bit more effort.

I'm still planning on replacing the stand anyway, just haven't decided on a stand replacement or a monitor arm attached to my desk.

Quick question: which have better contrast, IPS, PLS or TN?

I currently own a PLS, IPS, and obviously several TN panels. I can say that PLS seems to have the best contrast but IPS is very close.

Yeah menacing tuba's review mentions the excellent contrast.

Here is my setup of 3 debezeled QNIX QX2710 from Hulustar. No dead pixels, I had to fix the backlight bleed - but lets be serious all LED monitors have BLB. Very happy with my investment, superb colors and amazing user experience as a developer and front end designer.
