Hi

Thanks for your message.
It is glossy monitor.
Qnix added the tempered glass on Qnix glossy monitor.


If you have any other queries, please feel free to contact us.
Thank you.

- accessorieswhole


Nice to know it's a different answer depending on the day you ask lol. Either way i'm super happy with my monitor and if i was guessing i would say mine is a glossy. I'm glad i got the tempered glass version , but that was part of the selling point for me, i didn't like the matte on the asus pb278q.


Cheers for that.....they probs havent a clue and just have a wild guess lol.

Well being in Canada, I have been paying $400 for them, so yes its a good deal.

Just adding more info to the pool

- Bought a Glossy Qnix from accessorieswhole, paid for the perfect pixel version, had 1 dead pixel in lower left corner. Not a big deal.

- Had bad BLB in the middle-top and middle-bottom, could see where the panel was warped outward, possibly happened during shipping? who knows

- Debezeled the monitor which took care of the BLB

- Overclocks to 120hz, I keep it at 96hz b/c the right side of the screen gets darker than the rest at >100hz

- Very happy with the monitor now that it's been debezeled.

I also have a Crossover q-led pivot model that I bought from dream seller last year. Again, I paid for a pixel perfect version and it had zero dead pixels and zero BLB, but I think this is b/c of the better quality metal housing.

If I had to buy another monitor, I'd still pay for a pixel perfect version but I'd go with a different vendor, possibly dream seller again. Maybe I'm part of the problem.

I'd ask for at least a refund for the difference. Mine has a stuck pixel in the middle and that's what I'm gonna do. They didn't check the monitor before shipping it else they'd have found a dead / stuck pixel.

Debezeling fixed the warping issue that caused yellow bleeding? I have some yellow bleeding at the middle-bottom.

Tighten your timings. I am at 110Hz or 117Hz and there are no brightness uniformity issues, measured with colorimeter and my eyes don't fool me too.

Enjoy your monitor dude.

Where do I find the versions of these monitors (preferably XSTAR) with extra inputs? I can't find them anywhere. I have so far bought from green-sum and dream seller, do I just search there pages?

If that's the price, you may as well buy the new ones for $300 with free shipping. I got my used Qnix for $180, but that was a bit of a lucky find.

Lots of results from Ebay? These were the cheapest I could find and the good part is that accessorieswhole is selling them (one of the better Ebay sellers).

If you go through with one of these, could please try to overclock it and let us know if the multi-input version will overclock? I have seen people overclock the multi-input one, but only through the DL-DVI port on the monitor. I haven't seen anyone try it on the DP port.

Thanks, from that link I found this one. http://www.ebay.com/itm/X-Star-DP2710-LED-MDP-Matte-Perfect-Pixel-27-1440p-PLS-DP-HDMI-DVI-PC-Monitor-/121156200631?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c3578e8b7

So, that is the same as the two XSTARs I have bought, just with extra inputs now?
post #8668 of 25888
Where did you see ppl OC the multi-input with DVI-DL? I only saw ppl asking if it was OC-able or not...
post #8669 of 25888
Well here is my setup. I have two normal XSTARs right now, overclocked to 96hz, loving it.

The third monitor is currently an older 24 inch doing nothing. I am getting a Mac Mini. So I want to connect the XSTAR to the mac mini, but since this mac will only be used sometimes, I want to be able to use it for other things, maybe a console, or maybe a third screen along with the other two I have. The only way to really do this is to have more then just DVI.

So my quesiton is, but now I guess we don't know? If I use it as a third screen for my current setup, I want to overclock it to 96hz to match the other two screens. Then if I switch inputs to say DisplayPort with the Mac Mini, I don't really care what its at, if its 60hz or not. I want to be able to switch back and forth between them, 60hz Mac to 96hz PC. Will this happen or will it change everytime?

Also, will I notice the "input" lag? I'm never bought this originaly because of that, never cared about it. I do play games though, but I doubt I'd see a difference? Correct?

**I was just looking at the current Mac Mini (might change when they refresh) but I swear it had Mini Displayport, but now it only shows Thunderbolt, and from my research that only does 1080P?

**Forgot, my GTX 770 only has HDMI & DisplayPort left. So if I used the DisplayPort for the Mac, HDMI can't do 1440P, unless these monitors & the 770 supports the new standard for HDMI?

There was a monitor forum that had a few people do it. I forgot which one it was, hence why I can't directly link them. One of the people from this forum did a review on it and has been running 120Hz since then (I was reading this forum a few weeks ago). If I can find it, I will link it, otherwise this is all I have to show:

http://www.technologyx.com/pc-hardware/display/qnix-qx2710-27-2560x1440-monitor-review/3/

You can see in page 2 that they have the multi-input version and through the comments, HDMI could not overclock, but the DL-DVI worked for both monitors.
