With all the great looking AAAs coming out over the next 6-9 months, I wanted a nice sexy 1440 monitor to boot, but the cheapest model I found was $559 (ASUS on Amazon)...until this thread.
After blowing off a conference call and reading damn near 100 pages, this morning (Thurs) I ordered the QNIX 27" via Amazon reseller EcoMadeArena for $309 and free shipping. Should be here some time (Tues-Thurs). For non-gaming stuff, I'll have two 1080p flanking the QNIX...all three mounted on an Ergomonitor stand.
Can't wait to sneak up and stab fools in SC:B at 1440p!
Thank you everyone for all the great info!
I'll follow-up after delivery.
Dear God...it's already shipping.
QNIX arrived (east coast U.S.) on Monday afternoon in great condition (order it the previous Thurs afternoon). No damage to any surface or corner of the box…barely any scuffs neither. Connection was very basic as described by others. No dead pixels! I do have bleeding though from each of the bottom corners. I will work to address this once I understand the BLB solution more. So now my new set-up has the QNIX flanked by dual Asus 23 inchers.
The QNIX picture is great! I immediately DL’d five wallpapers, put them in rotation and just sat back and stared at them (through teary eyes) for about 4-5 minutes. Truly spectacular! I hope to order two more before Batman:AO and BF4 debut in October…if not, certainly as Christmas presents to myself.
My twin Gigabyte 4MB 760’s came in on Saturday, and I will work on OC’ing them before I try to OC my QNIX. I ran just one bench late last night, so here it is OOTB.
I have no idea if this is good, so I’ll join the 760 club and see how it compares.
Played some Splinter Cell: Conviction last night and it looked pretty good. As soon as I get my activation code for SC: Black List then I’ll try that out too before doing some BF3 MP as well this evening. Overall, I'm very pleased! More info to come.
