I used to be on the fence but having a glossy laptop I can see how annoying glossy would have been. Glossy makes reflections that you wouldn't think would happen. One really needs to be in a basement or cave for glossy to not reflect haha

I've never owned a glossy monitor before. I basically took my mobile phone and threw it up where my monitors are, and i saw the reflection of myself and the light... I was like.. nope. I think the glossy looks better, but if I'm going to get reflections that's a no go.

I hear the Matte on these are high quality/very light, so they basically just cancel out the glare but you still retain the image quality.

Edit: Ended up getting pixel perfect matte qnix, hope I made the right choice!

So from my understanding, these monitors come with a power brick and I can use my own 110w power cable on that brick without any power issues.

Can someone clarify that for me?

Thanks in advance.

Mine included the foreign power plug with US adapter. You could also unplug the cable from the power brick and plug in your own standard power supply cable

No one really knows yet. Only time will tell. There have been other korean monitors overclocked for year(s) with no problems so I assume the same applies to these

This is one click up from full lowest brightness:





The one in the center-upper-left goes away a bit when i push gently on it, but the one in the center-upper-right just glares at me. frown.gif

Thanks!

I had the same amount of BLB on my X-Star, with the same distribution of bleeding, only upside-down. I consider this intolerable BLB, but I'd be curious to know what other, more experienced users are thinking about it (I never had those issues with my TN panel before).

I was able to fix most of the BLB using the tape method that is being suggested at the front page of this thread and a few youtube videos on how to open up the monitor. Feel free to ask if you need any help. Now, the bleed that emited from the center (which is at the top in your case, was at the bottom in mine) is all but gone. I don't even notice the remaining BLB, not even when playing dark games like Dishonored at night.

This is the BLB after the tape fix. Mind you, the photo was taken with long exposure time, so the BLB looks worse than it actually is. Also, I didn't bother taping the upper part of the screen back then, which is probably the reason why there's still a decent amount of BLB there. I might get to it when I find the nerve and time...


If you don't want to take the risk of breaking something while using the tape mod, I'd seriously consider a refund or exchange on the sellers expense.

  1. Uninstall your drivers and disable test mode, reboot
  2. Reinstall your drivers (may as well do the latest beta 326.80) and patch using the latest patcher, reboot
  3. Run CRU and add your custom resolution, uncheck "include extension block", reboot

If your new refresh rate doesn't show up in the standard list, then I'm not really sure what could be going wrong at that point.
I'm running 326.80 @ 120hz with no problem, doesn't seem any different than other driver versions.

Unfortunately I believe you're limited to 5.1 which will be heavily compressed. Either that or you're outputting Stereo PCM.

My current onboard sound doesn't have the DDL license to do this and the software solutions that I've tried cause AV synchronisation issues. To use Dolby Digital Live I'd need to buy a dedicated sound card and if doing so I might as well buy a 7.1 card with analogue outputs (removing the need for DDL).

Thank you for the info about the Qnix and TV running in tandem successfully.

Welcome. Yes, I do have a dedicated sound card. Creative SoundBlaster Xi-Fi platinum.

I only output to my TV and receiver when I'm watching movies or shows. I play games on the Qnix with a cheap 2.1 Altec Lansing. I've even played a movie for my son while gaming. As in 1 PC supplying a movie to the HDTV while at the same time playing a game on the Qnix with the Altec Lansing. I was surprised I could do this.

Honestly I'm not an audiophile though I understand when you say lossless and PCM audio, I am not fussy about them. As long as I hear sounds coming from all my speakers:- coming in the right direction; explosions and sound effects are punchy - I'm good. smile.gif.
