Will this monitor do 3D using an AMD card?

Hello, this is Green-Sum, the eBay seller.
First of all, we are deeply sorry for your inconvenience. We will make our best efforts to support you.

We received the pictures. Thank you for your cooperation. LCD and LED monitors could have some BLB by their manufacturing nature. In a dark background, LG, SAMSUNG, or DELL monitors have the problem. It is a limit of LCD and LED monitors. Manufacturers say it will be reduced gradually as use.

Please let us know if you have additional questions or issue. Again, sorry for your inconvenience.
Thank you.

Best regards,
Green-Sum

What I've learned from this experience is that these Korean monitors can indeed be a very good value, but you need to be both patient and handy to fix what will more than likely be a damaged panel.

On the plus side, mine's now pretty much fine with zero dead pixels once I took the hammer and tongs (and tape) to it.

I wanted to follow up for the record. green-sum contacted me on ebay and offered me a partial refund which I accepted.

In retrospect, $250 USD for a 27 inch WQHD @ 120hz with zero dead pixels and minimal light bleed (after 30 minutes with a couple of screwdrivers) is an excellent value.

Thanks, all!

I've been dealing with him all week with my issue. Only gripe I have is he only answers 1 message a day and I feel like things are moving at a crawl. ATM, he is blaming UPS for the defect... I'm not sure that's the case but I really don't care as long as I get it fixed. The only thing I don't like is he wants to wait for UPS's claim to go through before doing anything more. That could take another week. I'm being patient though because the monitor is still usable. Hopefully it will all work out.

Any tutorials on how to either stop/quieten down the buzzing noise?
Doesn't Buzz @ all on 60hz but @ 120hz it turns on (havent tried any other hz cept these 2)

(happens on white backgrounds mainly, Wikipedia being the worst that comes to mind)


Other than that this monitor is amazing.

I used to have that problem with my old Samsung syncmaster monitors that were built during that time where cheapo caps were being used. It could be a bad cap on the power board. It could be the brick also(although I've never had that problem) so check there too. You can try to dampen it with electrical epoxy or you can replace the cap itself. If you use glue, try not to go overboard because it reduces heat transfer. It might be hard to identify which one because of the high frequency but if you are patient enough you'll track it down.

Of course the easy fix is to use a different refresh rate. smile.gif Another thing to try is a different outlet. It sounds stupid but different outlets(or power strips) might change the voltage enough to tweak the frequency. Good luck, I know how you feel. I hate that noise!

Well, my QNIX QX2710 Evolution II monitor arrived today and so far, I am extremely pleased. I'm upgrading from a nice LG 27" 1080p monitor and the QNIX is significantly improved in terms of picture quality, color clarity, brightness, and just the overall experience. This is a great panel and as far as I can tell, I don't have any stuck pixels or back lighting bleed.

Movies (HDX and Itunes HD) look amazing and the difference in picture quality is basically enormous. I'm really pleased so far with the panel and essentially everything (the back has a nice texture), construction looks reasonably solid.

The only drawback so far is the stand, which others have also mentioned, in that it does seem a little less sturdy than would be ideal. I may get a new desk actually as mine can be slightly wobbly. I am also considering getting a new stand for the monitor but we'll have to see how safe it is to install it (probably will go this route as long as it's not really problematic).


Overall, HUGE improvement from my prior monitor which I thought was pretty good in itself. Amazing picture quality.

Only other drawback is my 7950 does seem to get owned in FPS in the Arma III beta. I think I went from about 50-60 to 30-40, even after turning AA off. Hopefully the full release will run better.

However, I definitely would not go back to a 1080p screen and this monitor is such an improvement as to be almost a new experience when watching movies etc.

Am interested in overclocking it too but slightly concerned about safety of doing so of course. Will read more on it.


Overall though, extremely pleased with the quality for the price (fast shipping too, ordered Monday and received Friday with expedited). Best upgrade I've made to my PC recently I think.

Congrats on the monitor!

Not sure if it's covered in the FAQ, but what utilities do you guys use to check back-light bleed, dead pixels, and etc. ?
