Mine has no noticeable backlight issues either.

The colors were fine with the DS270. It's just that it looked very similar to my Qnix Glossy and the Qnix has deeper blacks and it overclocks.. so... not really a competition IMHO.

Funny all the professional reviewers of the korean monitors seem to think the DS270 is better

you do not even own a color meter so how do you know what looks right and what doesnt lol

Whoa.. take it easy. I am not here to tear down the DS270. I think it's an amazing display. I was just saying that it looks very similar to my Glossy Qnix sitting right next to it. And for around the same price, the Glossy Qnix black levels are deeper and you can overclock it. Different strokes for different folks.

I have personally bought and tested five different Korean monitors in the past month and one thing I can say is that these monitors are EXTREMELY inconsistent.. which makes sense because they are inherently flawed panels. I am not here to tell everyone which display is better but rather, I was just sharing my experience thumb.gif

PS - I have a color meter on the way next week so I'd be happy to share my results from there but as I said, the colors already look great on the DS270.

Funny i just found this regarding the monitor you like so so much , qnix

The side effects of overclocking the Korean PLS monitors are:

1) Gamma shift - commonly described as darkening
2) Panel uniformity - where the left side and right side of the screen are not the same brightness
3) Image retention - experienced generally with objects that are displayed on a monitor for extended periods of time, seems to be more of an issue to those who leave their monitors on or are editing documents for long periods of time

You can reduce / eliminate (most probably reduce the gamma shift and Image retention) by keeping the pixel clock below 450MHz, which is what the EP269 controller used on these (even the Catleap) Korean monitors is natively capable of.

You do this by editing the other numbers and not only the refresh rate, driving down the pixel clock for a particular target refresh rate. Or, working in reverse, achieving the highest refresh rate for the lowest pixel clock while keeping the pixel clock around or below 450MHz.

There is an absolute necessity of having a colorimeter / spectrophotometer (if you can afford it) when doing color-critical work. The gamma shift can easily be corrected with color calibration; however, if you desire the best results with the least correction possible, color-critical work could simply be done at 60Hz and whatever else you do, at 120Hz.

@HyperMatrix: I've been wondering for a while, worried about the side effects of overclocking the Korean PLS monitors. What exactly are the side effects of overclocking the Korean IPS monitors such as the Catleap, besides the scan line brightening that you speak of?

I wonder how the panel itself could be affected by overclocking (such as panel uniformity issues) when the display controller, the EP269, is used across all (AFAIK) overclockable Korean monitors.

There really should be a detailed PCB comparison between the overclockable monitors with the aim of understanding what's really going on. I'm willing to do so with my monitor when I receive it. Whoever is willing to cooperate,

what color meter you getting ?

Did you get your monitor to 120 hz with no color shift? next to impossible to do

Spyder4 Elite. I am ordering a Colormunki as well.

I have already tried several ICM profiles on all the monitors I have tested. All the panels/monitors had their pros and cons. wink.gif

On overclocking the Qnix(s), I used some profiles here from the forums and had extremely impressive results. It's hard to game at 60hz after you've played for extended periods at 100+

using different color profiles from someone elses monitor is never accurate. you should of went with the idisplaypro 2 it comes with better software

and spyder 4 has gotten bad reviews

I am sending back the Spyder 4 as I just recently learned that it sucks ;-)

I will order the idisplaypro 2. Thanks smile.gif
