After LOADS of testing with timings, cables, video ports and driver settings i have managed to not get burn-in or more appropriately color retention unless i have a light blue or grey on the screen. For some reason the monitor hates light blue and grey LOL. To counter any screen retention you can easily set a quick screensaver timeout that sets your screen back to 60hz and rotates white and black full screen every 15-30minutes. This will eliminate any color retention that is there(or not there).

You can get a good screensaver (that is safe) from toastyx's CRU page i believe. It only does black but i modified mine to do black and white in increments. You could also just grab a picture screensaver and set it to just white and black in "X" amount of time but it might be hard to find one that has a refresh rate setting.

So I'm curious, I'm looking into getting one of these but I got a question in regards to 1440p.

I currently have a 24' 1080p monitor, and dabble with down sampling in games. Is down sampling a good example of how 1440p monitors are going to look if it's native? Because honestly, I really didn't notice that much of a difference in-game down sampled to 1440p other than the aliasing being much better, and some subtle increases in image quality in the distance.

Just curious if that is representative of how it will look with a native 1440p monitor for games.

NO not at all, having native 1440p native is WAY better than having it downsampled. I know this from experience and testing. For exmaple try getting a 1280x720 monitor and downsample it to 1920x1080, next set it next to a native 1080p monitor. You will see the quality difference.

If you get a monitor that breaks whatever the description on the ebay listing says file a claim with ebay. If a perfectly functioning monitor breaks randomly during normal use, file a ST claim and they should cover everything.

I know it's not directed at me, but I've never seen anything more than very minor burn in lasting more than 6 secs.

Possibly, but they would all need to be exactly the same make - e.g. All Qnix/xtar/other korean brand and all glossy/matte.

However, if there is a unit code on the back I suspect ST would ask for it. Not sure myself, someone who got multiple would have to say if there are any differences on the back sticker.

Thanks but I don't see you on the members list. Did you fill out the members list application in the OP?

Ah, thank you for the info!

Also, I can't ever remember retention and not burn in, makes sense, because it goes away.

what do we do if some games arent detecting 100hz?

Hey everyone. I just picked up one of these monitors off of ebay, the QNIX 2710 Matte. I'm coming from 3x1080p eyefinity in portrait that I sat way too close to (small desk) and needed something smaller so I thought the 1440p would be perfect. LOVE the monitor so far. It's very bright (may need to tweak that), not backlight bleed so far that I can tell, and no dead pixels. Now I'm very excited to possibly overclock this monitor. I'm running 3x6970s, which I know will drive this monitor just fine on ultra settings most games at around 60 FPS give or take. But I have read that you can't overclock this monitor when using trifire, is that correct? Am I screwed unless I actually remove a video card? My 6970s are all watercooled, I'd rather not have to remove one and re-do the plumbing in my system, not to mention that I wouldn't have much horsepower left to drive this monitor at 60+ FPS.

So I guess my real question is, can I maybe achieve like a 96 Hz overclock with my tri-fire 6970s? I realize i'll never get 120 Hz because I can't get dual crossfire cables on all the cards, but perhaps a mild overclock could be OK?
