  • Software used: dispcalGUI 1.2.7.0
  • luminance: 265 cd/m2
  • black point: 0.0 cd/m2
  • white point temperature: 6554K
  • sRGB @ 60HZ: ~100%
  • sRGB @ 96Hz: 99,4%
  • sRGB @ 120Hz: 98,1%


Qnix_QX2710_color_profiles.zip 33k .zip file

265cd/m2 ... your eyes must be burning through their sockets.

Black point should be left at "as measured" though - I did a write up on this, try these settings: http://www.overclock.net/t/1397938/my-spyder4elite-monitor-calibrator-loan-thread/160#post_20476964

Heh heh I thought I knew of something else named Silver Haze and Googling for that device proved it... wink.gifbiggrin.gif

Thanks for your contributions. I will try your ICCs plus am going to be giving DispcalGUI a shot with a DTP-94 and an eye 1 display 2 I have lying around at work. I tried to find free software for this months ago and inexplicably did not run into this one.

Honestly, if you care about the colors enough to even install a profile, I recommend buying a colorimeter. After buying the i1Display 3 and using it with Argyll and madVR test patterns and the recommended parameters, I can vouch for doing color accurate professional imaging work on these monitors*. The resulting precision of the chromaticity coordinates is very close to lab sRGB coordinates. And you can use the colorimeter for calibrating more than once to maintain accuracy.

* I would not recommend using these monitors for reading X-Rays though. wink.gif

Oh god is it fast and optimized. So much better than even the jump from 7 to 8. Snappy snappy snappy makes me happy happy happy.

You're awesome. Thanks! biggrin.gif

Can you set different profiles for each monitor? Btw, did you happen to fix your yellow tint on your 2nd Qnix?

Well I've been trying to upgrade windows and I've been tweaking games in my spare time. I'm still waiting on copper shims to come from china so really I'm still only at 80hz but I think I got a good monitor aside from a little BLB. I got my timings really tight(another sign I got a good one) 80hz I think is all you need to eliminate allot of the tearing and brainwash flicker you get at 60hz(I think 60hz is too slow for the 780 and somehow restricts it). I'm gonna go 120hz soon. I don't care what it takes if I have to volt something or even rewire the internals switch 10 DVI cables I will get 120hz unless this one is really just that bad(No Dead Pixels No Dust). You can even order replacements of all these chips right off ebay or alibaba if i reallly had to redo things... I'm opposite than most people on this QNIX. The bezel I kind of like it. I like the clear base stand too. I like the blue LED and it doesnt bother me. Sorry I was kind of tired earlier and I still am, but really either you know whats wrong or ur total noob and I have to say those things. Sounds like I guess you did know and you were hoping or something. Seems odd for your monitor to just die like that without some kind of event a little more drastic than a sleep cycle. Test mode means the panel and monitor still work just the signal processing isnt working aka the non samsung component of the monitor that circuit board in the back in that little square housing. Did you cool that chip was it at 120hz when it failed? Seems like not enough info was given. I too had a problem explaining things when I was younger and I help people allot with pcs and get tired of lazy people that just plink their keyboard and want everything handed to them. Really googling is the only way to know anything online. Don't expect anyone to help you. Most are stingy and jealous and don't want you to know more than they do(most of the time no one knows the ans). Out google them. Really right now I'm more concerned with selling my 680 and some other parts on ebay and buying another 780 so I can really drive 120hz max graphics on all the latest games than I am about actually clocking the monitor at the moment. Really wish this monitor was supported by Nvidia so I didnt need another monitor between driver installs or OS installs.
I've also been studying displays in general OLED finally came out(this month). 4K is not attainable by current graphics hardware. This monitor is the perfect stepping stone at just the right time. It doesnt get any better than this. This is it and I am 100% sure of it. All we have to do now is wait 4 years till 4k OLED comes down in price and then upgrade to that. That will be the true god monitor. Surpassing CRT and Plasma. Resolution is nice and yes I want more but at the end of the day it really comes down to contrast ratio. CRT 15000:1(funny how these numbers are easy to find now and when LCD came out 10 years ago you couldnt find these contrast numbers anywhere on the net) LCD 1000:1 Plasma 20000:1 OLED 1000000:1. OLED is 50x better than Plasma(assuming you actually have the bit depth to drive all those color grades).

Oh yeah none of your color profiles worked on mine(all of them looked far worse with green bluish turquoise tint allot of them). I was looking at that CalMan software but now I'm hesitant because it looks like cheaper colorimeters dont really perform to the level the nice ones do. That klein what an expensive piece of something we all just use a few times. What we really need is a rental service for nice ones so we can just use them a few times and return them. I need to conduct more research to find the best buy on those things.

Yes you can set a custom profile to each monitor. With some RGB tweaking (turned down green a bit) I got rid of it for the most part, the back light is still slightly "cooler" than the other one, but they both look gorgeous. They're very close in colors now.

I used the Asus color profile in the Faq.

Again, I CANNOT say enough good things about accessorieswhole. I swear they are the best business I've ever personally dealt with. 2 days international shipping... and he gave me a partial refund (deducation from perfect pixel model) because of the slight yellow tint on one of mine. He even stated that colors aren't covered by their policy but offered it to keep me happy (I was never rude or angry in the first place).

I'll take some pics later on.

By the way, 96hz makes 50-70fps feel sluggish/choppy like it's 30-40fps. Does this effect go away if I crank the refresh rate up a bit more? I used to use a 120hz TN panel and never had that kind of effect.

Ordered a Qnix off Amazon this week! Should be here by tomorrow (according to them rolleyes.gif), total came to right over $300 which surprised me quite a bit since it was not some random ebay auction. Can't wait to see the difference between it and my 22" TN panel.
