i thought so too. but i have always had a prying mind;)

i must add that for 270$ including shipping this openbox was a good deal. i was apprehensive at first, but my doubts melted away when i turned it on.

hopefully it lasts a good while too. thanks for the reply.

Dang. My QNIX arrived in Seattle at 5AM this morning, via DHL, then it took 4 hours to transfer to a delivery center. After that it had a "transferred through" Seattle tag. Now it says its back at the delivery center.

Sucky seeing how the previous 36 hours it traveled through several centers in Korea then flew all the way to Cinncinati, OH for customs, then to Seattle last night. Now that it's within driving distance, DHL is fiddle farting around with it. Oh well. Guess tomorrow will do. Was really hoping for today though.

Is there any free games that looks nice on 1440p?

I see some people running in Test Mode to use patched drivers which isn't exactly great for security. Wouldn't it be better to generate your own trusted CA certificate that you use to sign a Code Signing certificate with? You could then sign the driver yourself each time you patch a new version and Windows should accept it in normal mode if I'm not mistaken. Not 100% sure it works when modifying .sys-files though but maybe that's not an issue in this case.

So, as far as i know, I shouldn't be getting any sort of image retention at 96Hz, as my pixel clock is only 393 (well below 450). However, it seems that I'm getting image retention in the top-right corner. questionmark.gif

No guarantee of presence or absence of image retention above 60hz. You got a bum panel.

What about the spec logos on the top right side? Those are stickers at least, right?

The logo at the bottom middle, specs at the top-right, and model number at the top-left are not stickers. They were printed on the bezel, so you'd have to sand them off and paint the bezel if you want them gone.

You could also go bezel-less as others have done.

I think I lucked out. Occasionally I'll do a CL search for 2560x1440 just to see what's available. Last week one popped up for $250. Asked the seller if it had any dead or stuck pixels. He said no, it was perfect. Asked if he'd take 225 for it. This all not knowing brand or anything.

Picked it up a few days ago and turns out its a Qnix 2710 glossy! Immediately over clocked it to 120hz and all seems to be great.

Pretty amazed at guild wars 2 at 120hz. Panning the camera around was just gorgeous.

Love this thread and all the info here. Thanks fellas! Pixel perfect for 225 bucks = win!
