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 :-)

Once you go to 1440p you'll have a hard time going back. I recently sold my shimian and I'm temporarily on my old syncmaster as well, I am really hating every minute of it. The viewing angle is horrible, the colors aren't as good and the contrast is so much poorer that it literally made things harder to read . It's insane how much better the quality is compared to a normal TN.

Pixel perfect is not worth buying and it is a gimmick. Some sellers don't even mean pixel perfect but list it as such anyway. It's very dishonest. I would say the odds of getting a pixel perfect are about the same regardless of what you order. I ordered my shimian as a pixel perfect, but it still had dead pixels. I demanded the price difference and only resolved the issue with the seller after several weeks. The above poster mentioned buying a pixel perfect and still having dead pixels, so that's 2/2 pixel "perfect" models having dead pixels.

It's also extremly hard to spot dead pixels unless you're looking for them on a solid white background. For normal use, just put away your OCD and you will forget that they are even there.

-It's amazing, I play quake a lot these days and notice no lag whatsoever
-Not really
If you can manage w/o AA then a single 670 will yield great results.

Good for gaming, yes. Very low input lag since it does not have any OSD.

Pixel perfect is NOT worth it from what we've seen in this thread (and the other one as well). Pixel perfect means up to 2 dead pixels, and it's uncommon to get more than 2 dead pixels for non-pixel perfect.

A lot of people (me included) have bought regular ones and received screens with 0 dead pixels.

The thing you should worry rather more about is backlight bleeding, but there is no warranty that covers that either way, so you can't really do much about it.

There is not much of a difference. PLS is supposed to be an improvement over IPS. From what i have seen so far literally having them side by side is teh PLS seems to have a bit better dark colors(especially deep blacks) and the IPS has a little bit better brights(might just be brighter rather than better) Below is a comparison at the pixel level. Any real world difference is not going to really be seen so it is a matter of preference. I can say that PLS is supposed to be a bit cheaper to make(not cheaper but easier to make)

E-IPS



PLS



Also a huge comparison from elsewhere on teh forum

I know I'm being hella thick, but I can't see 'LCD Reduced' in CRU, only 'Best for LCD', 'Best for CRT' and 'Manual' in a drop-down menu.redface.gif

PS Another Qnix Glossy (and Catleap 2B) owner here: no stuck/dead pixels, backlight bleed apparent on lower edge, as is the slight 'bow' effect (masking some pixels) of the bottom bezel. IMHO a better picture than 2Bs, redder though and much darker @ 120hz (not gone higher). Flickering green horizontal scan-lines on films, I don't notice them if they appear at all in games. Some full-screen flickering occasionally. Using cable provided.

Bought from Dream-seller, 6 days with Fedex to UK no customs charge or duty (yet! They'll probably nab me later I'm sure) so £200 so far... thumb.gif

Oh, AMD 7950 @ 1000/5000 in case that has any bearing.

The Timings drop down in Detailed Resolutions? I don't see "Best" anywhere...huh.

If I remember right, LCD reduced is a check box option in the CRU popup window when making a new refresh rate profile.

The bowing effect causing lines of the screen to be cut off at the bottom was present for me too. Fixed it by wntrsnowg mod. Look at the spoilers in the op
