[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 831

post #8301 of 25887
I have raised the font size on the Qnix to 120% because it`s just too small and I feel like that my eyes get pretty tense after some time.

However, it is also on 120% now on my second 24" screen. Are there any programs that can adjust the size on the screens individually instead on both?

I am tempered to buy a second Qnix now only because of this. 120% font size on the 24" is pretty big....

I apologize if I had not seen your post, on large threads like this, I skim through a lot of posts, however, do you have the panel serial number that I can look up for myself?

Edit dug up your post. I stand corrected. It did remind an issue of it though. W-LED. The U2711 is CCFL LCD. Is the price of RGB LED still insane?

No biggy, i am glad you came back and posted to clear things up redface.gif

You sir are correct and here is the appropriate photo:



Last night, I took some comparison photos between the 3 different monitors and below are a few of them. These were on stock color profiles and taken only with a Canon S95, so it could have been better tested, but I don't have the correct equipment for it. The monitor behind the Qnix is another HP ZR22w and is close enough to its twin that I didn't test it out.



Left (HP ZR2240w) | Middle (HP ZR22w) | Right (Qnix QX2710)







Even though the HP ZR2240w looks the most accurate in photos, the HP ZR22w physically looks better to my eyes (subjective of course).

are these all calibrated with the same tool with the same lighting?

cause from what I can tell (and have been reading), if they aren't, this shows us absolutely nothing.

+1 we need calibration or it doesn't count. You could put 8 of the same monitor next to each other and see these type of results if you don't calibrate.

No they are not calibrated and I don't have the equipment to do so. I'll try to find color profiles to help with the differences, but that's really the best I can do with what I have.

I just wanted to show the differences when every monitor was set to default settings. As stated, the PLS panel is a lot more vibrant than IPS panels and makes the colors of the Qnix more saturated. Then I was showing the difference between a LED-lit IPS and a Fluorescent-lit IPS vs the Qnix.

the differences can vary so much with uncalibrated panels, where those 3 panels could be QNIX's and look that different.
EDIT :
I didn't see Spartan's reply, this really didn't need said again.

Fair enough, but certain pre calibrated monitors are easy to judge than non calibrated. the HPs might be pre calibrated since I know dell does to their ultrasharps.

Do y'all think it's a good idea to order from ipsledmonitors.com? Other users reported success earlier, but I haven't seen any talk of them recently.
