27" IPS with *Light AG*

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Edit: Or PLS.


I want to get a monitor like my Catleap 270..

However, I want a light anti-glare coating - like most TN monitors.

It must not have a thick AG coating, like dell monitors.



Are there any?

Thanks!

The AG on the Qnix QX2710 is quite light I believe, I really love it.

If you need any info on the Qnix see below: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

How you may ask? Qnix QX2710 or Qnix QX2710 (Pixel Perfect for $385)

"Oh, it's from eBay? **** that brah." Relax, relax...let me explain.

It's a PLS panel (which some say is just Samsung's version of IPS), though the pixels are different from IPS monitors. Some also think PLS has better colors than IPS.

From what I've seen most people easily hit 110Hz, if not 120Hz, as long as you don't have a garbage graphics card.

The bezel is of reasonable size, too bad it's glossy though, I'll be painting mine matte black. Also the anti-glare coating on the monitor is quite light and doesn't degrade the picture quality. Sooo much better than glossy if you ask me, and many others will agree.

Mine came with 1 dead pixel and 1 stuck pixel (likely the stuck pixel can be fixed), I ain't even mad though...the pixels are so god damn small it's quite hard to notice it. I don't have any backlight bleed on mine, some people have experienced bleed, but there is an easy fix.

The downside of the monitor is that the casing is cheap, which ain't that big of a deal to me. Although it is kind of annoying that you have to remove the back panel to take off the stem of the mount (if you want to put this monitor on a monitor stand with arms).

All in all, I'm really happy with mine. Definitely recommend it if you're in the market for basically the best bang for the buck/performance monitor you can buy right now. Also, the shipping from South Korea is so stupidly fast...48 hours, how is that possible? If you're worried about a warranty or it dying you can get a warranty from Square Trade for $50 for 3 year coverage.

Feel free to read user's opinions in the huge Overclock.net threads:

TL;DR
Pros:
-27"
-1440p
-overclockable to 120Hz
-amazing colors
-cheap as ****

Cons:
-cheap casing
-possible backlight bleed (though you can fix on your own)
-cheap monitor stand

You rock, thank you.

How is the blurring compared to QH270?

My U2311H was too slow, it bothered me. The QH doesn't.
