BS.

That's what they said. I'm sure it's subjective so it probably meant no serious BLB. Anyway we'll know soon!

Tbh, the only reason I would consider it is if the included stand turns out to be completely unusable.


Hmm might reconsider it then.. would like a proper stand but don´t wanna break anything.

Well time to Give a bit of an update(bit... that's an understatement lol). Here is the Qnix Adventure I had. Happy reading, I'll be posting Pix in a bit... that is if I'm not lazy and actually clean off my mess of a desk tonight. blushsmiley.gif

On the 24th of Oct I ordered the Qnix QX2710 with Red-Cap for 329,99USD (246,13EUR) which included shipping Via Fedex. The Following morning I received an email with the tracking number. According to Fedex the delivery date was to be the 30th. The long wait began.

On the 29th I got a phone call from Fedex asking if I was available to take the package as they where able to deliver early. I wasn't... frown.gif They where however nice enough to have the package re-routed to my office for the next day.

So the 30th finally arrives! as does Fedex with my monitor. Prior to letting the driver go I made sure to check the box for scratches dings and dents.... nothing. Now for the Packaging of the Box... well, it had some delivery labels.... and a handle... I wasn't at all impressed with the way it was sent. No sort of extra protection around the box at all, just some tape to keep the box top from opening. I am glad that Fedex was nice to the package for a change.

The first thing I had to check was the screen (Hopefully no cracks!) .... turned out that... it had none! time to breathe a little easy, but just a little. The rest of the unpack was quite uneventful, Power cable, a very flimsy DVI cable, a power brick and ... instructions? LOL tossed those in the bin. tongue.gif

Now for the setup. I have a Desktop clamp dual monitor Holder thingy (Yeah that's right, thingy) which had a Benq XL2420t 120hz and Benq... no idea but its a nice monitor.. connected. I took the Power and DVI cables from the 2420 and stood the Qnix Right in front. First thought... Damn that's big... So I power the thing up and am greeted with a crisp screen and PIXELS....LOTS AND LOTS OF PIXELS!!!!drool.gif Windows 8 automatically changed all the setting accordingly. I was (and still am) amazed at the clarity, color and... well.... PIXELS!!! biggrin.gif

Ahh that brings me to my next point, Pixels.... I remembered seeing a Pixel test in the OP. Loaded the site and made it full screen, I must have cycled back and fourth for a good 15 minutes. Not a single dead or stuck pixel. YES! thumb.gif Back light bleed was there but no that bad to warrant the use of the tape mod.

I immediately booted up BF4 and fraps to see the kind of FPS I'm getting.... hmm something is off everything is smudgy not sharp at all !!! With all the excitement of the new monitor I totally forgot to change the settings in BF4. Easy Fix. Woah! able to push 150FPS! WOW... the color, the sharpness.... the .... ghosting... :-( !!60hz!! Time to OC

Thanks again to the OP for such a comprehensive collection of programs and tutorials, Patched my driver, Downloaded and setup the CRU, not too much I thought at first... lets try 80hz.. rebooted. all OK. No skipped frames. MOAR! 96hz. ALL GOOD! aaevil.gif 110hz AWESOME! MOAR MOAR!!! devil.gif

120hz... oops ohno-smiley.gif

Frame skip test went though without any problem, but when I loaded BF4 I had horizontal green Pixel lines that show every once in a while... alt f4... ALT F4!! I thought I killed it, It was bad. Changed back to 110hz and rebooted. Everything back to normal. Phew. Just to be sure that I don't accidentally choose 120hz again I proceeded to erase the profile. blushsmiley.gif

Now to the Vesa mount. I had a heck of a time trying to find screws which where long enough to fit but not too long. In the end I swiped the Screws from my 2420 and used washers. Perfect, Nearly. Once the Monitor hangs on the Vesa mount you notice how flimsy the plastic really is. ALOT more BLB showed in comparison to the regular desk Stand. Looks like I need to do the Tape mod after all, Ahh well, at least I can then also remove that
stupid foot.

Payment Recap: (Germany)

Qnix: 246,13€ ($329,99) From Red-Cap (Ebay)

Customs: Shipped to Germany:Done by Fedex
Printed Invoice (from red-cap = $150)
33,10€ + 10€ Fedex charge

246,13€ + 43,10 = Qnix delivered to your door (Germany) for 289,23€ ($388,45)

All In All I am quite pleased with this monitor and thank everyone for providing such an thread filled with information and experiences. thumbsupsmiley.png

Thanks for sticking with meh! Let the 1440p gaming begin! wheee.gif

I'd recommend just watching one of the good Youtube videos and then just think about if it's something that you're comfortable with doing. It's the cheap plastic and poor quality assembly used for the monitors that is the problem really and it's slightly annoying that you have to disassemble the casing the reach the VESA mount. It would be helpful if they could fix that in future versions and I'm sure a lot of people wouldn't even mind paying a little more for it.

I'd heard nothing but bad things about that seller before which is why I personally avoided him but it sounds like you did OK, apart from the less than stellar packaging.

Enjoy. smile.gif

Just got my monitor in last night.
Quick and probably dumb question. The power brick that came with mine has the 3 prong plug that most USA monitors and power supplies use, except that the cord it came with is a Korean 220V plug. If i were to plug in my USA 120V plug from a TV will that work? It would be nice to not have to buy a converter.

Yes, that would work fine.

thanks for the quick reply, that's a sigh of relief. I have to wait for my computer parts to come in tomo. Sold my old computer on craigslist and ordered new parts including a 770 so can actually get some decent frames on this new monitor : ).

mine arrived today at last, it was stuck in customs for a couple of days.

no dead pixels (checked with eizo monitor test), a little bleed on the center to bottom right (can live with that for the time being). overclocked to 96Hz out of the box (gtx 680), loving it so far.

bought from red-cap. 329.99 USD = ~250 EUR, customs fees to slovakia = 50 EUR + 14 EUR to fedex to clear it for me.

one thing that bothers me a little is the colors.


qnix using 96Hz icc profile from the first post on the left (even though i tried more icc profiles, can't seem to see any difference with my eyes) on the left, dell u2412m on the right. (standard icc profile from tftcentral).

you can clearly see that the dell has a lot colder colors and i like them like that, is there any way to set the qnix up like that? i tried to tinker witht he nvidia control panel to no avail so far.

nevermind those lines on the dell, it's PWM showing up on my phone camera.

edit: hmm on the picture, the qnix colors look way better than the dell lolz.
