[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 911

post #9101 of 25891
First time poster, recently joined, hello all, and thanks everyone for all the great info on this epic thread!!

I purchased two of these from Amazon (sold by "Bizaroo"), and I could not be happier with them. Got both of them mounted on my dual monitor stand, and powered them on. Using 2 EVGA GTX670-FTW's in SLI, and these work just fine to drive both of these monitors. Best thing? ZERO dead pixels on either monitor, and ZERO back-light bleed on either monitor. I am totally stoked and feel very lucky that I didn't have any of these issues. Also, did I mention how beautiful these things are? Wow, I've had two 20" monitors for a while now, and moving to these things just blew me away -- crisp details everywhere, beautiful, vibrant colors. I just can't hardly get over how great they are.

If you're on the fence about buying these things, I'd recommend them whole-heartedly. I realize that I may have gotten very lucky to get two monitors with no problems like I did, but I am very happy with my purchase.

Next thing I'll work on is figuring out the OC'ing of these and try to get them at least up to 96Hz, and if I'm lucky, up to 120Hz!!!

How is the black color in the "tempered glass" version? I read a post from NCX that those tempered glass panels can display grayish blacks. While they are different from the "glossy" version which are deeper blacks.

No issues here with tempered glass and glossy. I have literally no backlight bleed either tho so that probably helps with perceived black levels. Blacks look awesome like they should on a pls panel ie; better than ips.

When the monitor is off, it looks like a cloudy gray. If you mean while its on, then in theory it could have worse blacks then the non tempered glass version because just like reflecting light from the front, the glass will also reflect light from the back side facing the screen.

My tempered glass qnix has much better black levels than my previous matte asus pb278q. I think the tempered glass helps with black levels personally.

AG coatings are known to cause the same effect. Light bounces off the back of the AG and creates a "halo" effect.

Just placed an order for Qnix QX2710 PP from excellentcastle, who in the email guaranteed no BLB and dead/stuck pixel issues.

Should arrive within the next few days.

Hi,

just joined this forum. I bought a Slim Qnix QX2710 Evolution II from Ebay Seller storewithstory and its all mainly positive, good comms, £187.32 delivered to the U.K and only £17.37 in duties paid meaning £204.69 all in which is pretty immense. Only slight problem is I have one red pixel which I presume means its stuck and not dead. I know this is within the tolerance levels (he says tolerance of 5 in the auction) so I can't and wont complain tbh, just looking for some tips on how to get rid of it and if it might just go away on its own. I guess in time I know I'll not give a sh** about it, it's just cause it's all new and shiny that it's a bit annoying smile.gif

Are these flashy videos all over You Tube and elsewhere actually worth persisting with??. I've also tried applying thumbnail/massagging pressure, but it's still stubbornly present.

Any tips would be appreciated!!
