Not to mention this has been discussed in probably about 50% of the 502 pages that we currently have.

Also if you look closely at a lot of the "pixel perfect" monitors they can still have a policy that allows you to have a "flawless" monitor with up to 5 dead pixels. Pixel policy listed within the sellers description is what you really need to look for.

For example the monitor I got for $285 from accessorieswhole only allowed for up to 3 dead pixels.
I bought my none pixel perfect from Hulustar with a 2 dead pixel promotion.. I got zero dead pixels and very minimal BLB.. Glad I didn't buy a perfect pixel cause they were $70 more 3 months ago when I got mine.. smile.gif

Actually this has been discussed, but honestly isn't the problem, the chips or panel don't get hot (at least my 3 debezelled qnix's don't) The "lack" of 120hz for everyone is simply that not every panel is capable, silicon lotto, no different than anything we OC.

Have you opened your qnix?

A huge amount of information here guys. I need some help please of some of you that have more experience with these monitors.
Currently I have been gaming at 2560x1440 on a 27in Dell Ultrasharp monitor and have noticed some ghosting. I have a pair of GTX 670's so I am able to get higher than 60hz refresh.

I've been eying these overclockable monitors but unsure of the make and model to buy and from whom.

Can someone please help me here by giving me simple advice on the make and model that makes most sense as well as most reliable ebay seller?

Thanks,

Go to the OP, look at "Monitor Fixes, Support, Help" and below that, the expandable section "Members List Form Submission Trends, Analysis (Click to hide)"

There you will see that the qnix is purchased the most, and some top sellers are hulustar, dream-seller, green-sum, excellentcastle, etc..

Also, the only models relevant to this thread are the Qnix qx2710 and the X-star dp2710.

120Hz means I'll be able to "notice a difference" in games up to 120 FPS right? So "120 FPS is the new 60 FPS"?

I'm not sure what you mean by this. 60fps ≠ 120fps.

I'm putting my Asus up for sale on Craigslist today. Once it sells, I'll be ordering one of these.

Should I go glossy or matte? I have glossy now, and my room is dark enough that it doesn't bother me. IIRC, glossy helps a bit with picture clarity, doesn't it?
In progress.

I have 3 matte qnix, and one of the 27" monoprice panels, glossy... comparing both, I know they are not apples/apples one being IPS, and the others PLS... but.. I am very happy with the qnix matte. It is actually semi-gloss compared to the horrible anti-glare coating of a dell 27" I used to use at work.

It is clear, and colorful, but with less reflections. I was on the fence too... but honestly the semi-gloss matte the qnix uses is awesome (best I have seen actually, and I usually always go for glossy). The only thing the the glossy version on this monitor is better for in my eyes is blacker blacks under certain conditions, and more reflections.
