Just got my Qnix QX2710

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
*EDIT; I started a new thread, this was supposed to go in the official korean PLS monitor thread. Sorry redface.gif
I guess i gotta start posting as well.
QX2710 has arrived and it is a brilliant panel! No dead pixel, but there is unfurtantely some BLB here, two blotches on top and a little one in the right hand corner.
It's got a yellowish look, and i'm guessing that's not good news. I see it pretty clearly during dark scenes in games/movies.
That's the only issue tho.
Question: The overclock guide on here just cover the basics, but there are a lot of options in CRU.
I got artifacts on 120hz but running steady on 96 now.
Can i try for any value? like, 111 hz for example, and just see how high I can go? are there other options to tweak in CRU to try to reach 120?
Tried the troubleshooting tips in there but still not solid.
Does the BLB look to bee way over the top here? It looks worse in the picture than it does IRL but still....

I'm wanting to pull the trigger on a QNIX QX2710 Evolution II but wondering about the differences between it and the X-Star DP2710 or Achieva Shimian QH2700. How much did you get your QNIX for?

The Qnix and X-Star are the exact same monitors, the only difference is that you don't have to open up the X-Star to remove the clear plastic stub of the stand, it can be pulled out by force.

The Shimian is worth it if you want a monitor that looks sexier (regarding the bezel design) and is better suited for color sensitive work. While the colors on the Qnix/X-Star are amazing, I have heard that they are oversaturated and not the best for use with color managed programs.

I do not suggest buying any of these monitors via Amazon. You get a lot of protection on eBay via eBay Buyer Protection and the prices are lower there. I recommend the sellers dream-seller and accessorieswhole.

I've done extensive research on these before pulling the trigger, and as I'm not doing color sensitive work on it, I'm pleased as punch.
I returned my Dell U2713H, and eventhough it's twice the price i prefer my Qnix (glossy). It's stunning, really.
I got it for 360$ on ebay from accessorieswhole, got it from Korea in 4 days (to Norway) which is pretty amazing.
Remmib, could you take a look at the picture of my BLB and see if you think it's over the top? Should i try talking to the seller or attempt the tape mod fix?

I'm also from Norway and just put an order on a Qnix smile.gif Did you have anyone contacting you about taxes?

Can you take a picture of it with the background being black?

It looks pretty bad though.

Nope, the seller put a $200 value on it and it shipped via FedEx, who do all the customs stuff automatically and delivers it to your door.
I'll get a tax and handling bill later in the mail, but it'll be like 50$ probably.
The screen is great value, but mostly I got it because of the combination of:
1. 2560 x 1440
2. Glossy screen
3. overclockable

I played around with some custom ICC profiles and it looks absolutely amazing. Great blacks and colours biggrin.gif

Remmib, I did, and the pictures look much worse than it is, but still, it doesn't look too good, I agree.

Do you think I should see if the seller can replace it, or should i go for the tape mod fix? Unsure if i should open it as i'll probably break something wink.gif
