Thanks. Yes watched some this morning, appears to be a straight swap. Could also complete the blb tape mod at the same time. I have agreed to have it posted.

I finally decided to buy a QNIX from accessorieswhole, it should arrive by the end of this week.

I was wondering, what DVI cable do you guys recommend that I can buy online? Hopefully something available from newegg / NCIX.

Hi all, I have a lot of questions about monitors:

1) I want the highest pixel density possible, reading the first page it seems that the best option is 27" 1440p (1600p are only 30" and 2160p cost 3500$), right?
2) Is there any way to get 120Hz on Linux? I didn't understood how this 120Hz thing works...
3) What's the difference between QX2700 and QX2710 II?
4) Can I get the QX2700 @120Hz?
5) Can I get 120Hz over HDMI? I don't like the double DVI thing and seeing that SHARP's IGZO monitor use 2xHDMI to achieve 2160p@60Hz I thought it could be possible to achieve 1440p@120Hz in the same way.
6) If I've understood correctly HDMI must be version 2.0 to stream 1440p@120Hz; who needs to be HDMI 2.0 capable: the cable, the GPU or the monitor?

And no, I don't have another computer to test it on, but frankly, I think that is not a concern considering my old monitor had no issues with the same setup.

Personally i would go for it again...BLB is easy enough to fix, 1 or 2 dead pixels around the edges arent noticable at this pixel density - the only problem is if you have a cluster near the middle - which is aun deniable cause for return.

I would try at least one more time smile.gif

1) 1600p is a different aspect ratio(16:10 vs 16:9). It's virtually the same ppi and more expensive
2) Assuming your video card has drivers for Linux, it's possible but I don't know for sure.
3) From what I understand the 2700 has more inputs and a scalar. The 2710 only has DVI-D and no scalar.
4) From the threads I was reading a few months ago, many were getting 90ish Hz. There might be more up to date info now - check those threads.
5) There is no HDMI port on these monitors. Personally, I avoid HDMI like the plague. The cables are more expensive(good ones at least) and all you gain is sound. They are also more limited than DVI-D and Displayport in resolution unless you have v1.4, in which case it's hard to tell just by looking at the connection or wire.
6) all need to be compatible. I don't know any card that has HDMI 2.0 yet. I thought it was coming out next year. Chances are if you have a wire that's 1.4 compatible, it will be 2.0 compatible. 2.0 is intended for 4k resolutions.

I know someone else removed their glass from the tempered glass models. Anybody have an opinion on this? I'm getting my replacement sent tomorrow but they are out of glossy models. My choices are get a tempered glass model and remove the pane or just go with matte. I think I might go with matte since removing the pane might leave a gap in the casing. Anyone have an opinion on this?

Does anyone maybe own both a matte and glossy and can comment on how different they are? I know many say the matte coating is super light, which is why I'm considering it. Is the matte coating on a hard surface or directly on the LCD?
post #7247 of 25888
1600P displays are also wide gamut. Designed for photo and design work not "desktop use" and gaming. Colors are different (because there are essentially more of them).

The matte is a light semi-gloss coating on the screen/panel itself to answer the guy above me.

Maybe the current models are, but resolution and color gamut are independent of each other. If Qnix decided to make a 2560x1600 monitor, it doesn't necessarily have to have a wide color gamut.
post #7249 of 25888
Man, I still cannot decide. I mean, I never get higher than 70fps anyways, will I really actually see a noticeable difference at 96/120hz if my fps don't even reach those numbers?
post #7250 of 25888
Yes - 60fps on a 120hz display looks better than 60hz for when the times you do go over 60fps you dont get screen tear. To avoid screen tear you could do vsync, which introduces input lag. Your 7950 will push almost every game to 80fps+ with some tewaking on newer gpu intensive games. I'm not sure if your CPU is a limiting factor though.

Your particular QNIX is defective past 60hz which is really too bad - you bought it using ipsledmonitors right? i would take advantage of their no questions asked return policy and go for another one.
