This was accessories whole and they had stated 0 dead pixels in the ad
well they both have pro's and conspros
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.
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.
