EDIT: Taken from the OP: http://www.datadisplay-group.com/fileadmin/pdf/produkte/Displays/Samsung/LTM270DL02_Datasheet.pdf
Please see "true 8 bit display" on the forth page.

People should really start reading the OP before spreading mis-information. doh.gif

A question about connecting XBOXs. The only way to use the Qnix with a Xbox is to buy the HDMI version. However, that version is more expensive and not overclockable.

What are some other solutions that could connect the Xbox the dual DVI Qnix? Like a TV box that outputs dual DVI?

I don't know where your getting your assumptions from but you can google the panel used. It's a 8 bit pls banel which is used in the highest end $1200 + samsung monitor. I have owned a lot of different monitors in the last few months and this one smashes the rest by far. As far as ips vs pls is concerned the ips panels usually are brighter, with less pop but more accuracy to colors, and worse black levels, obviously in contrasy you are getting better blacks, colors with more pop but less accurate (slightly over saturated) and slightly lower brightness. With the asus pb278q i owned (2560x1440p pls panel) i did definitely notice the lower brightness and the black crush i had was unacceptable at any brightness setting. With this i don't see that at all at any brightness setting, i have it calibrated using the spyder elite 3.

So you say you know about icc profiles well the only downside of this panel vs a ips would be slightly over saturated colors (which a lot of people prefer hence samsungs popularity with hdtv's) which can be fixed by calibrating your qnix. You are right in saying someone elses profile might not help, but as you say every panel is different, even every dell will be different and you might get one that you personally think is worse or you might get one that you personally think is better than a qnix, no one can decide for you, but to say "So it seems PLS is pretty much samsung's version of eIPS, which is the cheapest IPS panels with lower quality and using 6 bit to dither to 8 bit. So the PLS might not be true 8 bit monitors" is just wrong.

I`m seeing an odd behavior since I got the Qnix

  • If powering off the screen, it goes dark but still is bright, so it is like dark with light behind it. I have to wait a couple of minutes until it gets really shut down.

  • The color/brightness/contrast correction in the Nvidia CP seem to reset from time to time, I have to go back into the CP and click quick on "use application control settings" and back on "use nvidia settings".



Does anyone else has this?

The reason I do so is to keep the refresh rate at a multiple of 24Hz so that 24fps movies are displayed as they were intended, avoiding the slight stutter from the use of pulldown.

I don't think there is any way because the monitor does not have a built in scalar.

You basically have to choose between if you want overclockability or ability to connect a console. It looks like the CrossOver BlackTune 2763AMG supports consoles though.

There is proof of the multi input version with DL-DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort overclocking but only through the DL-DVI port. See my posts a few pages back.

I was asking about this but no responses.

I am not sure why people repeatedly say the multi-input version does not overclock. I myself have never seen evidence that it didn't so i am not sure where many have gotten this info. Honestly though, having the scaler's input lag(which is it is the same one in other korean monitors the input lag caused will be high) it makes it not worth it. The resulting motion blur would out-weigh any increase in refresh(in my opinion). Not sure why no one else replied or why you double posted this(technically triple counting the repost).

Also i found this on 120hz.net and thought it might be nice to post here. Pretty much the same mod i did to mine except i did not do the fans(the heatsink is more than enough and doesn't require cutting).
