Just from what is listed on the header of the auction.

Why do you hate matte?

So this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-2560x1440-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-/140934439651?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20d058e2e3

And like above, any particular reason you like glossy over matte? Glossy is about $20 cheaper too over matte.

Lurker here:

Thank you all for providing such detailed information on these monitors, and on the ebay sellers.

I purchased a Qnix QX2710LED II at storewithstory, and I have no complaints. The package arrived within a week of transferirng the money, which is crazy fast for dutch customs. I asked if storewithstory would put a lower price on the box, and I ended up paying €57 on import taxes. Which I'm very satisfied with.

Out of the box, whites were a bit yellow when connected to the ati HD6870 and the R9 280x. But after calibrating the gamma in the color management menu, it looks stunning.
Whites are spectacular, blacks are really matte (and actually black) and colors are very realistic and vibrant. My samsung led syncmaster looks like absolute ***** next to this monitor.
Actually, my philips ambilight tv (purchased for €650 at the time) is also lacking compared to the Qnix, although much better than the syncmaster.
Obviously the added pixels is the main reason we buy this panel, and it doesn't disappoint. I love the added space on my screen, and the extra pixels actually make quite the difference in games. 1080p actually feels a bit claustrophobic now, just like 720p used to be.

There are no dead pixels, no backlight bleed and I'm running this monitor on 96hz. The monitor looks and feels very solid, this feels like a professional product.
I did manage to run it on 120hz but there were some horizontal artifacts. When gaming on 96hz I adore the smoothness. Note that it doesn't contribute to smoothness when you have < 60 fps. But when playing some smite, I easily managed to get >100 fps, and smoothness was crazy good. It's quite strange to see gaming characters walk as smooth as people do IRL.
I'm almost tempted to buy something like a R9 290x or GTX 780 to get +- 90 fps on games like BF4 and crysis 3.

When playing movies on this screen, the image is much smoother on 96hz than on 60hz. Yet it's not as smooth as the philips amiblight and its 100hz engine. I believe this actually creates intermediate frames.
I do think playback on the Qnix is smooth enough at 96hz, for me to complete ignore the philips ambilight.

So this turned out to be quite the sales pitch for PLS...I am in no way affiliated with any Korean PLS monitor brand redface.gif

I sent him a message on ebay right after payment. I am going to send an email to the paypal adress as well.

Yeah it pissed me off, and his response was every morning @ 9am he responds to emails for the day, = after he responds even if you immediately respond back you won't hear from him again till the next day.

I explicitly put that I wanted gloss only , not tempered glass or matte, or gloss w/ tempered ( which i hear doesn't exist anymore) and he confirmed that it was tempered loooong after shipping it out. Instead of apologizing just said he hoped I enjoy it and if I have any other questions please let him know. I responded back immediately to that and no response, so 12 hours later this morning is when I filed a case with Ebay and paypal , under "incorrect item" and opened a dispute. If he's gonna ignore emails, let's see him ignore the bank.
I am waiting to see what happens. Sucks cause I don't have the funds to reorder if my money gets tied up for a bit if this goes south. I really hope he sees my email and does it right. I think theres a very good chance that he is out of glossies, hopefully not. I would hope that him waking up to your dispute would have him think twice on sending me the wrong item. We shall see. Thank you for your info. Wish I could just cancel and order from greensum. Waiting game I suppose. The email once a day thing is really lame I agree. Its not that hard to log back on a couple hours later and answer a question.

Description means nothing if the seller doesn't verify the contents of the box, this has happenned to others, so it's an iffy statement, just be sure to email about it.

Cuz it's not gloss biggrin.gif

Closest thing I've seen the tempered + gloss is the apple cinema display iirc.

matte IS Gloss just w/ film over it to dull things out, that's why I hate it. It reduces the quality even if by a smidgeon. I have no glare w/ my current monitors, though quality is something you take a small sacrifice for , for those that are in areas where glare is just impossible to escape.

Hi all

I'm having an odd issue with my Qnix QX2710. When I bought it, I was using a Geforce 770 and it worked well and overclocked to 120 Hz with no problems. Today I upgraded to a Geforce 780 Ti and reinstalled drivers and the settings etc, but the thing is that now it's working really bad. It doesn't overclock one tiny bit (after any overclock the screen is fine after a few seconds and then turns blue and everything is messed up). Also even without any overclock now the screen is flickering all the time. I can easily see the backlight turning on and off.

Any idea what the problem might be?

I now know what's wrong, it's my second monitor. Basically the Qnix overclocks with the GTX 780 Ti easily when no other monitor is connected, but as soon as I connect my other monitor (which is a 60 Hz 1080p IPS), the screen starts flickering, even at 61Hz. So basically no overclock with two monitors with 780 Ti. I used DisplayPort, DVI and HDMI cables for the 1080p display, but it's the same.

I did not have this issue with my MSI GTX 770 at all. Has this happened to anyone?

(When I try a lower resolution with 120 Hz, it works).

You would be very surprised, actually. You lower the components (of R,G,B) that make the whites yellow and there you go, 6500K whites.

Of course, software calibration introduces minimal gradient loss if not handled at the monitor side (let's say palette becomes 92% of original size for example), but for consumer use it does the job.

Which there was a way to extract the current profile I have on this one. That way when my gloss comes from greensum ( as long as it's not tempered as well ) I can swap it over IF anything seems off.
