Glare would generally not be an issue from windows for me.

I originally ordered glossy but got a matte one. The matte coating is less aggresive than any TN panel I have ever had. It is in fact a semi-glossy. I do not have day reflection problems but keep in mind that electrical lights at night still can cause bad reflections. On my matte Qnix, electrical lights cause a noticeable diffusion reflection on a black background. I think it is a good mix between glossy and traditional matte.

After doing this my scanlines and slight flicker is gone. It also seemed to help my cloudiness or uniformity even more.

Hope this help some people

I would post who said it but i can't find the post again (was doing a ton of research and kept in mind and went on surfing before i tried it)

Can someone would be so kind to make a guide on how to configure these other settings like sync polarity / all those different values in the CRU controls without messing everything up?

Thanks thumb.gif!

All I know is I tested the polarity idea and it didn't help my screen uniformity. I just end up sticking with LCD reduced and then trying out different refresh rates. I can get to about 135, but I don't even like using 120 for how severe the dark patches get on the screen.

something happened over night frown.gif
i created custom resolutions (96,120) with cru-1.0 yesterday (nvidia card / qnix monitor).
everything was working fine - could use 120 without any graphical errors.

i tried to boot into windows today - no picture. after booting into safe mode and removing both custom resolutions, windows is displaying a picture again in normal/testmode.
what went wrong?

Thanks! I'm going to play it safe and go for matte then smile.gif.

hello guys!

i have purchased perfect pixel QX2710 from dream-seller.
- the screen OCs to 110Hz without artifacts.
- fixed BLB easily with office paper pushed between the steel frame and the panel itself

but i found out that there are at least 3 stuck pixels in the corner, and also some sort of smudges (2x2 darker pixels) ... what should i do now? get different one from the seller or a discout?
please give me tips, ill be grateful.

here is image of the faulty pixels https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/479389_4876240579522_922879615_o.jpg

if u have questions regarding the blb fix, feel free to ask.

I think you should just ignore it. The dead pixels are at the far corners anyway, you won't notice it when you're gaming or doing work.

My bad i loaded a wrong profile, this 96Hz is really good. Thanks a lot.

I don't have a guide but reading over the origin forum regarding this tool would definitely get you a good start

http://www.monitortests.com/forum/

Another source would be to read(as i did) over the very similar endeavor several people made for years now with the catleap 2B monitors. I found this to be very informative and helped quite a bit in several areas of getting 120hz.

The last reading source i would recommend is IPS technology documentation as understanding the technology as a whole is very necessary to pushing the limits of it.

Hope this kinda helps thumb.gif

Hello everyone.

I still use a samsung syncmaster 21 inch CRT for gaming and surfing the WebI use . the resolution 1600x1200 @ 100hz,with a 2500k oced and two gtx570 in sli so most of the games have a good fps with vertical sync on.
I ve never seen a 1440p monitor but I want to jump on the wagon even though I know I will probably have to upgrade my GPUs to two gtx 670, for example.

Couple of questions:

- is the QNIX good for gaming or will I deeply regret it because of lag and ghosting? Anyone also came from a CRT?
- is it worth buying the perfect pixels version from eBay (20 bucks more) or is it a gimmick?

Cheers :-)
