[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 898

post #8971 of 25887
This might be slightly OT but has anybody tried both the Qnix QX2710 Evolution II and the Crossover 27QW and which one of the two would they recommend or would the recommendation be for a different model entirely?

I would most be using it for gaming.

It was real simple, I was a bit apprehensive but went without hitch and all honesty took a very short time. Follow the video guide in the op for dismantling the casing. When you get the cover off the pcb itself is just a few screws to remove and swap the board out, I was worried regards getting the wires back correctly but each one only fits in the correct place due to size of the plugs.

I've actually had both. The 27QW was very very nice picture maybe just a little tiny bit better than the qnix IPS vs PLS

However not enough to justify overlooking the 96-120hz you get with the qnix.

One good thing with the crossover is backlight bleed is a non issue.

I didn't get to look when I took out the stand, but the wires are basically just plugs? Like what you would connect to your motherboard?

They are far from mainstream sadly. I would hazard to guess that most of us on these computer enthusiast forums barely make 1% of the actual PC gaming population. If you look at the majority, most people are playing on laptops.

I could never agree with putting gaming and laptops together, but that's an entirely different topic.

Yeah it's three different plug style cords

Update on my dead pixel problem.....im only concerned about this group of dead pixels tbh as i cant live with these.....

photo 111_zpsfd316a73.jpg




I have been in contact with the buyer and they suggested it could be dust.....so i asked them if i could open up the Monitor and clean the glass and panel as it would be a shame to send it all the way back to Korea if it was as easy as that to fix it and they agreed as long as i didnt damage anything.

So yesterday i opened it up and removed the glass (easy job) and there was no dust.....wiped it anyway just incase.....now they have offered me a partial refund or return the Monitor.....i have said there is no way i could live with this blob on my monitor so a want to return it.

My question is has anyone done this and who pays the return charge as i have just looked online and from the UK to Korea its gonna cost £108.00...$173.77 which is more than half the cost of the Monitor?

Thanks, so would you probably go for the 27QW then or does the OC'ing potential outweigh the Crossover's benefits.

I guess I'm trying to future proof my setup as much as possible really.

This is my biggest concern about importing one of these things tbh. I've noticed that some of the ebay sellers do offer to pay return costs for the first year though. Is the original listing you bought it from still live (assuming that it was ebay)?

If you didn't pay for a pixel perfect version you might be screwed. I paid for a pixel perfect version on my first korean monitor and it developed 2 bad pixels after about 10-15 days. I insisted they pay for the return shipping. I think they only did pay for the return shipping because I filed for a chargeback with my credit card and they realized they might end up with no money or monitor if they didn't do it. This was accessories whole and they had stated 0 dead pixels in the ad

well they both have pro's and cons

pros of the 27qw are no backlight problems
possibly slightly better picture but that is in the eye of the beholder.

cons of the 27qw are I really did not like that silver piece of plastic on the bottom. It does come off very easy as I was gonna paint it before I realized I had bad pixels

does not overclock at all.
pros of the qnix
overclocks from 96-120hz with alot of them doing 120hz
the two I have had only did 110hz each but that is fine with me.

When you overclock you have a gamma shift but I was able to completely fix that using 1.45 gamma in the amd control panel and it passes all the color/gamma tests and looks great.

cons of the qnix are backlight bleed

cons of both:
utterly garbage stand (they have the exact same stand) I replaced it with a mono price desk mount stand

I have what I believe to be backlight bleed on my monitor, or it might just be the normal PLS glow I hear people talking about. If you play a ton of games like Battlefield3/4 You will never even see backlight bleed except on loading screens. If you play more dark action adventure games like metro 2033 or tombraider or some such that glow/bleed can he highly annoying. I put black electrical tape around the frame of my monitor as per the OP post on this thread and it didn't seem to do much.

I want to take pictures of it to get peoples opinion on if it is backlight bleed or if it is just the glow but I can never get a good picture of it that looks anything like what it actually looks like to my eye.

Over all I am very happy with my qnix for the 310$ I spent on it. It came pixel perfect but developed one bright pixel but you CANNOT see it from normal viewing distance even on a black screen unless you look very hard for it.

so the qnix does have the possibility of annoying BLB that some people have had success in fixing, but some have not had luck like me. But again I'm not entirely sure if mine is what is considered backlight bleed or if it is "normal" pls glow.

I think the zero dead pixel policy is different......they do promise no more than 6 dead pixels on all their monitors but if you get 6 then your screwed....but obviously the perfect pixel means your paying for zero.

Theres no way im paying £108.00 to send it back....but they seem ok so far......im going to insist on a perfect pixel replacement with no extra charge for my inconvenience......i have 45 days to do a chargeback so still plenty of time. smile.gif
