Meh. 1080p is epic fugliness on anything larger than about 17"... don't know how anyone still uses it in 2014. The worst of these cheapo 1440p IPS screens looks far nicer to me in and out of games than 120 Hz TN 1080p panels. The smoothness is really sexy on those, but I just can't handle the low resolution and junk viewing angles inherent in TN.

Not that I want to argue with blindfolded 120 Hz "Gaming monitor" [lachen.gif] fanboys...

Then again: I will wait for guaranteed 120 Hz panel and you...

Keep missing out boy, because your IPS is obviously skipping lots of frames smile.gif

PS. Won't even mention enormous input lag and an the fact that your beloved IPS just lost to TN panel (XL2720T) in terms of colors wink.gif

That review was only of that model they fail to mention that there are other models out there such as the DVI-D only model that overclocks and will not skip frames. It has been known for a long time in the Qnix club here on OCN that the mulit display and DP only models do not overclock.

These DVI-D only models can get to 96Hz without a hitch. Anything over 110Hz will require some additional steps such as custom timings or swapping for a better cable. The 24AWG Monorprice cable can help and it has been found that shorter the better for your chances of higher overclocks.

I have had my DVI-D only Qnix for over 2 weeks which replaced a ASUS 1200p TN monitor which used cheap TW caps (surprised it last as long as it did) and the difference was night and day as in terms of colors out of the box. A bit saturated but choosing some ICC profiles takes care if that along with some gamma shift that occurs when overclocked. I can get mine up to 120hz with some custom timings with no frame skipping. I leave mine at 96Hz most of the time for video playback and my games respond very well to this for my hardware. For 300 bucks, I am very happy with my purchase.

In short, The Qnix DVI-D only version are the only models that will overclock and will not skip frames. NCX Review http://wecravegamestoo.com/forums/monitor-reviews-discussion/13500-qnix-qx2710-review-2560x1440-matte-overclock-able-pls.html
