[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 980

post #9791 of 25911
I'm scheduled to receive my Qnix monitor today for the glossy version. I ordered from Worldbest and after reading about what's been going on lately I'm a little concerned I won't be receiving the correct monitor type. Is there anyway to tell from outside the box what type of monitor is being delivered? That way I could inspect it before UPS leaves and could refuse delivery if it's the wrong monitor.

Sadly no these are highly dull looking boxes, part of which I believe is a means to escape import costs, as I noticed " GIFT 100$" was on mine. Each seller could be different though.

worldsbest is greensum right? On my monitor box it had a hand written label on the side that told what input/screen model it had on it.

Sorry I lied and it just had the different inputs listed on the side with check boxes, not the screen type

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.
Gotcha. Thanks a lot for explaining. I'll get a glossy then. Hopefully they don't run out by the time I get mine.

Yeah , if you said you ordered gloss, possibly you got gloss + tempered glass, I've never experienced once myself but IF you spot glass, verify its not matte behind it as well. Keeping my fingers crossed for you though. thumb.gif

Ok there is definitely glass on the screen but to me it doesn't look like a matte finish behind it. I wont be able to turn it on till early next week at the earliest. I'm thinking about just asking for a refund already.

Just went ahead and requested a refund from Worldbest and placed an order with Green-sum. Hopefully Worldbest makes the refund process easy.
