From what ive been reading and showing its seems it is not notciable at all.


I also order a qnix on sat. Hopefully it get here soon, but i got mine from Amazon due to if anything goes wrong hopefully i have there back to help me.

I agree, coming from a standard 60hz TN panel, it's awesome!

Ok guys, I now got my second X-Star monitor and it looks perfect, just like my first.

Now I want to attach these to a desk mount, how do I remove the stand from the monitor? This might be in the first FAQ post, but want to confirm here.

My QNIX is in the country, has cleared customs and hopefully will be on my doorstep tomorrow!

Quick question. I plan on overclocking it but is there really any benefit of pushing it to 120Hz if you don't ever plan on running 120FPS? I have a 7950 and at that resolution, I doubt I'll ever see any modern game push close to that many frames.

I am running both of my at 96hz simply because within Windows, its just so smooth when moving windows and all that. I don't even care about any content that I watch.

Yes because:
1) Smoother when browsing web
2) Older games get 120Hz goodness
3) No tearing if your game framerate goes above 60Hz (i think this happens, not sure)
4) Quite a few colour profiles have been made for OCed monitors so you can find whatever looks best
5) E-peen.

So, a small side story...I am a photography fan and the Qnix has certainly improved my editing.
My latest set of pictures got a lot more positive feedback than ever before thanks to the Qnix (and x-rite) calibration.
So not only gaming is good with it for sure! thumb.gif

Here is one of my favorites And sorry if it feels out of topic but this is the main reason I bought the Qnix for and I am glad to see results right away! smile.gif

I want one! by GabrielG2k11, on Flickr
