Welp, i now have a 2nd "stuck" pixel. Not sure if it was always there and i never noticed it or if it's a brand spanking newbie.


I now have 2, one green and this newly discovered red one, i kind of feel sad for them, all lonely without their buddy, all i need now is a blue one and i will have the trifecta of stuck pixels.
I'm back baby!!!

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...
Marketing. They're both overclockable, but the ebay seller now decided to capitalize in on it by putting it in the auction. It's cheaper to put a new auction entirely than to revise the original.

I couldn't help but laugh when I read trifecta. Try this to help fix them. Run it for at least for 6 hours if they are stuck well: http://udpix.free.fr/

I usually game at 96Hz and switch back to 60Hz for desktop use. I fired up Borderlands 2 yesterday and forget to switch back to 96Hz and instantly I noticed how choppy it was. I switched it back to 96Hz and it was so much smoother. I've grown used to gaming at 96Hz (and have the graphics cards to push 96+ FPS) and it's fantastic. The colors right out of the box blew away my TN panel, making gaming even more enjoyable (my Qnix is on the "warmer" side, which I think looks good. I haven't messed with the colors or color profiles at all).

I'm really happy that I found this thread and got one of these monitors. I got really lucky with no backlight bleed, not dead / stuck pixels (ordered pixel perfect matte from green-sum), no image retention, and no problems OCing to 100Hz. thumb.gif

Has anyone has any luck using a capture card (ex. Avermedia c985) with this monitor? Using a DVI-D to HDMI cable did not seem to work and does not maintain the 120Hz OC I currently had with just DVI-D connection. Any recommendations on how to capture this type of monitor with Avermedia Live Gamer HD C985 capture card?

Could you give your opinion on the matte screen for these monitors? I'm heavily wavering between going glossy or matte. I use a glossy now and I really like the perceived clarity and...depth of it versus my other monitor which is matte.

serioiusly considering one of these, really don't know much about them, but they seem too good to be true for the price.

I'm sure I could get used to a glossy monitor but I really don't like the glare because I have multiple windows and light sources in my room.

The matte coating on the Qnix / X-Star is pretty light, and I even notice slight reflections on it sometimes. I would say it's between matte and gloss, but more on the matte side. A light matte.

It's all personal preference though, there are many happy glossy owners here.

Okay cool. I'll have to make a decision and just go for it. I'm really nervous about having dead or stuck pixels or whatever but I know that's part of the deal so I'll cross my fingers.
