Is there a suggested ebay seller for qnix QX2710 II monitors?
post #6362 of 25893
You may want to consider an Amazon seller (such as Misemet, which is who shipped mine, although for some reason although I just bought mine Monday and received it yesterday, a new seller is selling them now on Amazon), which may or may not have better deals / reliability. My experience though was very good.

Exactly, great pic. If you notice the 'darker black' portion on top of the clear stand, it slides back and forth in a groove independent of the monitor case itself.

If you look at the youtube thread from the FAQ you can see where you can loosen a couple screws inside the monitor to make the sliding easier.

Mine was fine if a bit stiff by default. I found it easiest to adjust while it's sitting normally and then grasp the bottom of the monitor with one hand and the top of the stand plate with the other, and push or pull them as necessary firmly. I have heard reports where the screws were just waay too tight to move at all, in which case you may have to disassemble the monitor to loosen them up a bit.

Incidentally, disassembling the monitor seems intimidating at first, but honestly all you need is a couple flathead screwdrivers, one philips head and some patience.

Awesome thanks. Got mine to tilt. Actually prefer the most tilted back setting for the moment.


Are all of you comfortable with overclocking your panels? I've read differing opinions on doing so. (An article saying Nvidia says it's perfectly safe, but other forum members saying things varying from it is safe, to unknown, to one who supposedly "broke the pixels" of a monitor by Ocing it).


Any thoughts? I haven't seen safety of ocing the panel discussed much in the first few pages of this thread.

that clamp mount is actually pretty horrible, it has terrible balance and monitors lean to one side or the other if you dont have the arms directly outwards.

There are people who have been doing it for over a year without any issues. I think most people in this thread have overclocked. We're overclock.net after all!

So can anyone suggest me some setting I could try to get 120Hz. I do get 120Hz with a small green lines on the screen. i'm using Nvidia Control panel. ATM I only have 96HZ. I haven't tried any higher yet as I feel 96hz is the sweet spot and then one step ahaid is 120Hz due to movie playback

You could try using reduced blanking mode but that seems to make the monitor a little blurry (as in motion blur kinda thing, have to disable in game motion blur or it gets rediculous!).
You could also try another DVI cable although that didn't help for me.

I just settled for 110Hz. Watched a movie like that and it seemed ok to me. (I rarely watch movies anyway)
96Hz doesn't quite cut it for that smooth feeling in game like 120 does, 110 gets close, but not quite there.
Thinking about dumping this monitor and getting a 144Hz 1080P screen just to see how buttery smooth that is. thumb.gif
