[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 654

post #6531 of 25887
Have been lurking here for a little while, and i hope some might help with my questions:

A) Any suggestions on how long might the shipment form Korea (through eBay) might take to Israel? (excluding customs)
B) Most recommended seller of the Qnix QX2710 to Israel?
C) Glossy, Matte or Tempered ?

All help is appreciated smile.gif

a) a guy ordered to saudi arabia and i think it took about 6 days. I do not know trading routes though...
b) I do not think it depends on Israel, just pick one of the reliable sellers (i got mine from green-sum)
c) depends on your preference smile.gif i have matte and i'm satisfied!

thanks for the input.
So which re-sellers are recommended / trusted the most?

(honestly, i just have no info on the tempered glass option unlike the matte and glossy options)

Maybe I'm not the "best judge" but still a bit surprised at your impression. Unless there is in fact something wrong with yours...

In your opinion, how does a calibrated QNIX compare to a professionally-calibrated Eizo or, dare say even the NEC 1600p? smile.gif I'm curious to know how it compares...
post #6536 of 25887
I think the QNIX looks better. Not re. professional work and what have you; I am talking "general IQ" not accuracy and the like. Though I also manually tweaked my QNIX a little raising saturation and color temp a bit to my personal tastes. Not quite apples to apples...

I advise you to use DispcalGUI for that, based on my own experience. Very easy to use. If other software like HCFR works for you, why not.

But take a breath and test things out step by step.

It's no better without any calibration. It's actually worse apparently. Either way, the measurements don't change how the monitor actually looks. I've contacted ipsledmonitors for a RMA. I'll probably try another one and hopefully it'll be better.

Edit: Okay, I guess my request for an exchange was denied because of high demand. I can only return it for a refund.

Oh snap. Seems these guys have found a very successful business model though I guess that should come as no surprise. Though supply in general appears tighter now due to popularity...also no surprise. Though one would be that the prices haven't gone up as yet (down if anything over the summer).

And that is still better than having to deal with Korea for any type of RMA service.

That statement if anything leads me to believe there may in fact be a defect. Have you tried other's ICCs as well just to see?

Pulled the trigger on the Qnix QX2710 Glossy. It will be here on Monday and I will post some before and after images of the backlight bleeding (if there is any at all). I really won't like taking it apart to fix the bleeding, but I'll do it if I have to.

I'm really thinking of doing the same with my Crossover 27Q. Not sure if I can fix the blue-ish tint on it, though.

the right thing to do is go with the glossy... the aesthetically pleasing thing to do is go with the tempered.

Just an FYI. I bought my glossy panel through green-sum and it came with tempered glass. I don't think there is a difference when you purchase the two(meaning they all will have glass) and there is glare for sure. Has anyone who purchased a glossy panel not gotten glass? I've been considering removing the glass panel to see the difference but I haven't gotten the guts yet. It's only held on with tape on the edges. Also, from what I;ve read, the matte panels also have glass but it just has a coating on it.
