Reason most steer away from the 1600p panels is that they don't overclock much if at all....also the colors on them are not as good as 1440p pnaels as they are over saturated wide gamut etc and havbe a noticeable grainy image quality...

Also the input lag on them is a good bit higher than the qnix which can be noticeable if you've been on a panel with low input lag etc...

Of course gaming at 96hz on 1440p was huge difference from 60hz on anything lol

oh and overc Christmas prly pick up a second Qnix for price of a single 1600p pnael

Please see this explanation by MenacingTuba on the other Korean PLS thread:

Unless you know how to enable color management in the very few programs which support color management or have an AMD graphics card+use these settings (AMD Catalyst Control Center>display color section and check "Use Extended Display Identification Data (EDID)" in Color Temperature Control) the colors will be wrong. None of the Korean 30" monitors have sRGB modes so there is no way to get proper colors for games and movies unless you own and AMD graphics card. The Crossover 30X does not use a grainy matte coating but suffers from the same obvious overshoot ghosting as the Dell 3014.

30" monitors also have far more IPS/PLS glow vs. a 27" when viewed from 60-90cm/2-3ft, so, unless you want to sit at least 121cm/4ft away the bottom sides of the screen will exhibit far more glow in dark scenes vs. a 27", especially if the brightness is cranked. The increase in resolution from 1440-1600 is minimal.



All 30" monitors are a rip off since 2x 1440p monitors can be purchased for the same price. The 27" monitors typically have superior overdrive solutions (less ghosting), better color and brightness uniformity, and glossy+matte options. The 30" which use Tempered Glass have very poor black levels, for example, the Samsung 970D on the left in the below image uses the same tempered glass as the Apple Cinema+Thunderbolt Display, Dell S series and Korean monitors. The NEC on the right uses LG's semi-glossy coating which is basically the same as the coating the matte Qnix+X-Star use.

The 1600p panels have tempered glass which results in poor black levels.

Well, I did it! Used by birthday money to buy the Qnix last night. Original price on rakuten.com was $329. I had ~$60 in rakuten bucks bringing it to $279 out of pocket. Then they had a 20% cashback deal yesterday, so I will get ~$65 in rakuten bucks to spend later! Super stoked!! Do people generally buy an extended warranty on these? I see the Squaretrade 3 year was $48. I assume they come with the normal 1 year warranty. And then I think pretty much all credit cards now days offer an additional 1 year warranty for free as well.

Is there a noticeable difference in clarity between the semi-gloss (matte) vs the glossy?

Question to Nvidia users, I have ran the patcher and used the cru as instructed, then reboot but no 96hz showing in the control panel. It worked perfectly on my amd gpu but swapped to 780 and the first time have tried it just now. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

Edit - have now ignore

Quick and probably stupid question: If I get a Wii U which connects to a tv/monitor via HDMI, will I be able to connect it to my Qnix with a Dual DVI > HDMI adapter, even if it won't go above 60hz?
post #9367 of 25891
I have the oc now recognised in windows and nvidia panel and in game, also valid result in ufo frame tester . One more question, when gaming, as just tested it, I have a small circle icon with a red line through it in the top left corner of my screen, not large but have never seen it before or when clocked on my amd gpu. is this normal?

Thanks

I'm about to pull the trigger on one of these monitors as an early birthday/christmas present to myself. I noticed that some models are "Perfect Pixel" models and some are not. I was hoping to buy from a US retailer (Overclockmonitor.com) and noticed they have one glossy on sale for $299 but they are not "Perfect Pixel" models. Is it really a larger risk purchasing one that is not a "Perfect Pixel" model? If so I will purchase from eBay because I definitely want a glossy screen.

This question has been asked several times. And it's been shown that "Pixel Perfect" is basically a gimmick. Some people who order "Pixel Perfect" get dead pixels and some people who don't order a "Pixel Perfect" monitor get zero dead pixels. I'd say just get the best deal you can find from a reputable seller. I've also heard the matte is somewhat glossy and much preferred over the glossy.

Thanks for the info. I suppose I could consider a matte display then. This site has a bunch of different prices for these monitors but they seem to be the same, so I guess I have to figure out what that means...if there is really a difference or not.

Example:

$329 QNIX QX2710 LED EvolutionⅡ 27" 2560x1440 WQHD PLS Computer Monitor *Matte
$309 New QNIX QX2710 LED EvolutionⅡ OC 27" 2560x1440 WQHD PLS Computer Monitor *Matte

Seems like the better one (or just the same) is cheaper...
