It was probably the best experience I've ever had buying anything online. Even better than Amazon or Newegg. 2 Day international shipping, phenomenal packaging, great communication from seller.

I am currently communicating with AccessoriesWhole trying to get the glossy panel that I've bought and have to agree they respond fairly quick and trying to make it work.
However, glossy panel gonna take 2+ weeks to produce so I might have to get matte.
I really hope its not too matte like other have stated.

BTW they don't have that instock either. They have just received a shipment of Qnix QX2710 matte today however.

I personally vouch for matte screen, as I sit in a well naturally-lit room, with my old BX2450, between 4pm - 6pm, the glaring from the sun makes any dark environment in games or multimedia very hard to see. With the Qnix, it is MUCH better.

Yours is glossy not tempered glass right?

I bought mine from Amazon.com. It should arrive today. As I said in another post, I'll try to post pictures of the unboxing and BLB (if there is any). I also purchased the pixel perfect version, so we'll see if it lives up to it's name.

Well to be fair an individual eBay seller doesn't have the volume of Amazon or Newegg but it's still quite impressive when it gets to your door from the other side of the planet in 3 days.

I have a matte Qnix (secondary) and glossy Shimian (primary) which I look at for coding, etc and if I look from about 2-3 inches away from both screens then i see slight blurring of subpixels. Reflections from the windows make my side monitor useless (where the Qnix is atm) so I really appreciate the elimination of them.

At the same time I'm on-the-edge about the clarity difference for long periods of reading small text. I mainly code on the primary monitor, watch videos on the left, and read articles or documentation on the right monitor.

So, it's time to tell my story of the Qnix Q2710 that arrived this morning by UPS.

Here goes...

The unboxing:









Now comes the bad part...

I began to unbox everything and get it all set up for display on my desktop. I was hoping that my experience would be better than most on these forums as far as BLB or dead pixels. Well, I was not so lucky. I turned it on and discovered that I had very heavy BLB on the bottom and top of the monitor. After significant consideration, I decided to go ahead and take it apart to see if I could fix it. I removed the fours screws at the bottom and began the task of removing the front plastic face plate. After doing so I turned it back on to see if it eliminated any of the BLB. It only got rid of about 20% of it. After about an hour of fooling around with the panel, I decided to come up with my own tricks to solve the BLB.

Here's how I did it...

When I was fooling around with the panel, I noticed that if I put pressure on the bottom middle of the panel itself, the BLB would almost be completely gone. Same goes for the top. So, I put some paper (taped) at the top of the plastic face plate and put it back on at the top. That did the trick nicely at the top, although you can still see some BLB that I'm willing to live with.

One thing that people should be aware of is that if you look at the back half of the plastic casing that the panel sits in, take a look at the bottom. You'll notice that the bottom of the back casing is curved upwards in the middle. This might be a manufacturing defect of some kind, I'm not sure. But it's sure not straight as it should be. Also, I had to take a couple of screws out of the sides of the panel so that it flowed more freely inside the casing. This eliminated some BLB.

The BLB that was the absolute worst was the bottom left. It appeared to be pinching down there as some others have discovered. So, I put some pressure (as I said above) in the center of the panel at the bottom and the BLB would go away almost completely. So, I devised a plan of attack. Putting paper or tape down there would not yield any results at all. So tape or paper was out. But, I knew I had to keep pressure down there somehow. So, taking a huge gamble, I decided to drill a very small hole through the back casing at the bottom where the stand swivels. This allowed me to insert a small screw with a washer that would keep constant pressure on the panel at the bottom. After putting the plastic face plate back on (had to leave the bottom unattached because it would still cause pinching) the BLB was completely gone. I now have a panel with extremely minimal BLB only at the very top and you can hardly see it at all.

Here's an image of the screw on the bottom of the panel...



I hope that this post was helpful to some of you and I hope this is a warning to some of you. Be aware that you could have to do some significant fiddling around with your monitor to get it right when it arrives.

As for the colors, they are amazing. very rich colors and the blacks are very good, even for a glossy panel. I'd still recommend this monitor to anyone looking for a great 1440 panel. Overall I'm happy with it.


Cheers

Very nice! Good work there and thanks for posting your solution. I'm sure they'll be helpful to someone (if not me once I get my QNIX in the mail within the next few days).

From which seller did you order your QNIX from?
