I'd take matte personally, it is a very light coating and gets of of the vast majority of reflections. And my personal theory (I can't really back this up) is that the brightness level makes more difference to the "pop". Glossy may look ever so slightly sharper, but in that case I prefer the mate coating and lower brightness as it is easier on the eyes (and looks more natural, but that part's subjective).

Definitely doesn't look worse.

After talking to people here I'm beginning to think it's just normal behavior, though I never noticed something like this with the dell S2340L. On the other hand, it looks worse than the video here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0y5Sv8fbcPo
But I tried capturing it on camera and the glow didn't look as nearly as bad on camera as it did in person.

What glow are you speaking of? Is it the white haze that appears when looking at it from above?

Hey Fellas,

I'm new here been reading about this monitor for sometime now and thanks to all the awesome posts and discussions here I decided to take the plunge myself too and get one. I picked up the Qnix QX2710 from Red-Cap Pixel Perfect Version for $284.99. Just bought it this past Wed 9/4 has an ETA of Tuesday 9/10, cant wait. I'm currently running an old 22" 720P Active Matrix LCD monitor....sooo cant wait for the Qnix to come in.

Had a few questions if anyone could maybe help me please smile.gif

1. I saw before there is a FAQ and bunch of other info on the OP first page but for some odd reason its not their today.....is it me or is it missing? (I was hoping to get some of the OC and color utilities)

2. I'm currently running a Sapphire HD7950 Vapor-X - I noticed AMD released a new driver out today Catalyst 13.10 Beta http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/AMDCatalyst13-10WINBetaDriver.aspx

does anyone know if I install the new driver will I have to re-install the AMD Pixel Clock Patch too, does this need to be installed with every new driver?

Thanks for any help, and hope your all having a great Friday biggrin.gif

IPS/PLS glow, except it's visible from the front too. I think the effect may have diminished a bit but then again it's probably just because my room is in sunlight right now, so it isn't as noticeable.

I have some glow but it's certainly not from the front. It's far better than the glow I got from my Monoprice IPS, but even that did not have any from the front. I can't see it at all in the video but if you are seeing it, it might be a defect.

What video? The one from the overclockers.ru review? That's not my monitor, that was just a reference.

Anyone who purchased from dreamseller could please pm me his store address or address you guys filled out for the FCC form? I would really like this monitor delivered this week instead of customs making me wait frown.gif Thanks.

Is the first huge post broken or is it just looking weird for me? I needed to check how to overclock again since I did a fresh windows installation, but now that's gone... Halp pls!

It's broken.

The files you need to find:

atikmdag-patcher-1.2

>I think this is the latets version, no testmode required smile.gif

cru-1.0

>again, I think this is the latest version.

Edit: shouldn't be hard to find these on the interwebs. Official links should be on first page after a google search, I wouldn't get programs like these from anywhere else - that's just asking for trouble.

Looking into this now. Stay tuned. typer.gif
