Cool. I'm thinking of getting 2. 1 for when we need another dual link cable

Come on guys, please help. Someone should know.

Guys I've ordered a glossy QNIX 2710 and seller told me that there is no glossy versions left. Should I go for a matte version? Are colors overall worser and less vivid on a matte version than on a glossy version? Also comparing Crossover Black Tune 2735AMG/2755AMG-ACHIEVA Shimian QH2700 Lite Edge-CLUB(they use the same AH-IPS LG panel) to a QNIX 2710 - which one is better? I've checked the numbers and FAQ but real life usually a different story. Maybe someone here has both PLS and IPS displays so he can tell the difference? Sorry if it was already discussed but it is just impossible to read 560 pages. Also I've checked some videos and PLS seem to be less sharp and colors are more unnatural(reddish)than on IPS panels.In my local currency it is going to be like 320 dollars for a QNIX 2710 and 460 for Achieva, is it worth going for an IPS?Huge thanks

IPS is better on this video for example:

PLS is more red, but the massive colour shift on OCing makes that negligible. You should be able to find a decent ICC profile on here to fix that.

Look at your current monitor, if there are any reflections at all matte will look better. The IQ difference is minor as this is a light (but effective) AG coating.

I already have a 27 inch 1080pn TN panel. Is it worth 150 dollars for selling mine and going for a QNIX 2710? Or should I go directly for the Achieva?

Afaik only the PLS versions have a semi-matte option, which to me is worth $100 by itself.

"Directly" suggests you think the Achieva is better, but once calibrated nothing currently available beats an OCed PLS.

I have a question.

Is anyone having an issue with the color accuracy changing throughout the day.

Like for instance, I'll calibrate it and the colors will end up perfect. Then a few hours later, I check the colors and they're off again.

Last night the colors were just fine, then I checked them this morning and the gamma skyrocketed with all the blacks grays being off the charts.

Sometimes the colors will go back to being "accurate" after a while without me doing anything. It's bizzare

Does anyone have this issue and is there a solution?

I am also overclocked at 120HZ, however seems to have same behavior at 96HZ (to a lesser extent but I need to do more testing).

Qnix arrived today, working great! Haven't spotted any dead pixels (and don't want to go looking for them) and I've overclocked it to 96Hz. 120Hz worked, but I got some faint lines across the screen.

Mine is very nearly stable, very, very occasionally I get a line but that's it - off stock cable.

I could probably get 120Hz stable if I tweaked all the settings down as far as possible, but that takes :effort: and my calibration is for the LCD Reduced profile, changing it would mean the colors would shift again, and since I don't have the calibrator anymore I don't want my colours to be off.

I don't see any side effects at on my monitor @120hz anymore. This took every form of tweaking currently mention in this whole thread(which i have been on since it starred). The amount of performance for this monitor seems to be very relative to the amount of effort(at least initial effort) you put into it. I have posted LOADS of info regarding what i have done for others to see and possibly replicate. I recommend going through the OP very thoroughly and take a look at some of my very long posts(search as i have no intention of posting them for a third time and they are very easily found by searching "front porch" or "custom timings").

Right now i don't see any problem with colors, gamma or uniformity unless i get up to about 131hz. And yes after using all manual timings and settings your monitor will essentially be set "different" than anyone else's so you will have to set the colors up manually or use a calibrator. As Moragg said it takes effort and is very similiar to overclocking a CPU manually(at least for me process wise). This is comparable to just upping the mulitplier VS doing all out with each variable and setting. You know which one will be better but there is a lot of people getting these that are not willing to read to much or put forth the effort. They are just going to switch the refresh and go. Well i am going to tell you right now that you are not going to get the best performance by just switching it to 120hz, it will work and may even work OK for some but not nearly as good as it could work. Heck if it worked with no issues or side effects this thread would likely be a LOT smaller.

Push comes to shove it IS possible to have 120hz rock stable for many of these with a little effort. I would say after all my tweaking i have about 25-30hz higher stability(if that makes sense) coming from "just" setting the refresh to 120hz.

Many monitors do this to a very slight extent. If you have every had an office job were you look at text all day you would start to notice it a bit(depending on the monitor). It does not surprise me that you are seeing it "enhanced" after overclocking. All i can say is that it is another sign of slight instability and adjusting the monitor further may help but it will likely be present to point regardless. I have tested this and my monitor after "just" OC and no tweaking would have a gamma variance from time A to time B of .5 meaning it could vary from 1.7 to 2.7 from 2.2. After lots of stability work it ranges around .2 meaning from 2.2 it could vary as low as 2.0 and as high as 2.4. Many monitors for our graphics designers have to have less than a .01 variance from time to time.

For a monitor with no factory calibration that is overclocked with just a set it and leave method this is not unthinkable at all and is actually very probable.
