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.
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...
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.
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!!!!
Windows 8 automatically changed all the setting accordingly. I was (and still am) amazed at the clarity, color and... well.... PIXELS!!!
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!
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!
110hz AWESOME! MOAR MOAR!!!
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.
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
