I'm thinking bout buying 2 or maybe 3 Qnix and testing out them all for BLB and 120hz capability. The place I'll be ordering from is in my country and allows refunds and RMAs.

Anyone iwht amd having issues when you have the power option on windows to automatically switch off screen then you can't resume it? I've overclocked to 96Hz but this morning when I came to my pc the power on screen was flickering and moving the mouse or pressing buttons for like 2 min didn't do anything had to press reset on my pc. maybe it's a problem with AMD cards.

I tried 96hz again last night and was running very nice on Battlefield 4, Bioshosck infinite and Far cry 3. running R9-280x crossfire so for now I will disable that feature in windows as 96hz isn't that high anyway so will test for the rest of the week to see if it's solved. but if anyone can confirm this or give me a workaround I will appreciate it.

I was also wondering if it could be my CPU not getting enough voltages making my pc unstable but wouldn't that make my pc bluescreen or so. my CPU is at 1.35V and has been running like that since whenever. Everything was running fine on my old GTX570sli. I also have intle c1e enabled in bios maybe I should disable it and also see but for now I think until someone can verify that they having the same issue and tell me what to do I can just wait and see if it will happen again. BTW I fixed my previous issue by just swapping the cards around.

Finally clicked the Buy button on a Qnix last night and it's on it's way to me now. It seems to be moving quite quickly so I should hopefully have it either tomorrow or on Wednesday at the latest.

Excited yet slightly terrified at the same time.

I had bought a "pixel perfect" from accessorieswhole originally and it had a dead pixel I made them pay for return shipping since it wasn't what I paid for. The amount of effort I had to expend to make that happen was pretty ridiculous.

It really aggravated me when they kept saying it's dust clean it with a cloth..... lol

I imagine this is probably true. I read a post on another forum this morning where someone had been through a similar thing. The seller (I think it was AW actually) sent them a long ebay message detailing how these displays are usually meant for use in Game Centres and PC Bang where a small number of dead pixels doesn't really matter and that the manufacturers don't actually consider these things to be faulty unless they have over 10 dead pixels.

That's all well and good but if that's the case then they shouldn't really be selling 'pixel perfect' monitors. There's going to be a difference in expectations between a guy who can pick up these things for $150-200 in a Pusan market and someone who has paid $300 + delivery + customs fees to have it shipped halfway across the planet.

These monitors actually sell in Korea for around $250 USD. So the price they sell them for is pretty good especially when you consider that fact that you can order one on a monday and get it the next day tongue.gif

Oh I'm not saying they don't present a bargain to Westerners at all, they definitely do and we wouldn't be here if they didn't. I actually didn't know these things existed before last week otherwise I would have just bought one the last time I was in Korea myself and brought it back with me. The level of retail customer service you actually get in person over there is phenomenal.

An easy test to do without taking apart the monitor is to just tap on the front of it while the monitor is on. If there is not a temporary flash, then there is glass in front of it. Also it will have a distinct sound. I plan to remove the glass as I dont like the look of it when its off.

Hey, just read this and was wondering what it means. Any reason for the glass to be there, does it have any effect on the screen itself?

It is the Tempered Glass version Makes the colours look more vibrant etc......downside is reflections from the glass can be bad if you have light behind you etc.

So you're saying the tempered glass version is more vibrant than the glossy? Or are they the same?
I don't like matte (anti glare coating...) so I went for the glossy, I have no lights that disturbs the screen.
But he seemed to indicate that there was an extra layer of glass on top of the glossy screen?

Well funny you should say that but some companys sell the tempered glass with a glossy panel underneath the glass, and some with a matte panel underneath according to this thread, and the response i got from a company who sells them on ebay (they told me it was matte underneath but a different company told a guy on here his was glossy?)....i cant comment on whether the Tempered is more vibrant than the Glossy just that it is more vibrant then the matte.....i have a 27" samsung glossy and a qnix tempered glass and tbh i cant really see which is better....i just like the idea that the glass is easier to clean and wont scratch as easy as a glossy panel......but then theres the dust problem with the tempered glass potentially getting behind the glass. smile.gif
