I guess you could try to go through a lot more icc profiles?

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.

Check out the profiles in my sig, they're quite a bit colder than many I've seen posted. My Qnix has VERY warm colors without using an icc profile

If you have an nvidia GPU you can setup the color set manually in the NVCP. Use a website like http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/ to calibrate. Also in the NVCP the color spectrum can be adjusted separately between each color type. Using this you can edit the red color brightness/gamma down a good bit. After doing so adjust the overall brightness to keep your color vibrance. Then set green slightly down a bit. This should give you pretty much identical color to an LG IPS panel variant(the cooler look). I did this when adjusting the Qnix right next to a crossover IPS panel. NVCP color setups like to stick in games better too so it was a win win.

Or you could get a pro color calibration tool(could i used the one from work and then returned it).

I currently have a Catleap Q270 that is absolutely perfect. I am a bit hesitant to get a Qnix or X-Star and have it not live up to the Catleap. I want OC but that seems hit and miss as well. wha-smiley.png

Any new things going on with these monitors? I haven't read the past 1000 posts in this thread haha. Been a little busy with school.

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!!

Can anyone help, I've attached a picture. Perhaps someone can confirm that it's definitely stuck and not dead,

thanks
