Crossover 27QW IPS LED vs. Qnix QX2710LED EVO II

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm looking for another 1440p monitor to compliment my X-Star DP2710.

The Crossover is AH-IPS and cheaper while the Qnix runs at 100hz and uses a PLS panel.

Since I game and do a bit of design work, which one has the best image quality and color accuracy? Also, is the Crossover overclockable to ~100hz?

The Crossover cannot be overclocked to 100Hz.

They should be pretty much in the same league for color accuracy at 60Hz, although the PLS panel is likely a bit more saturated due to the larger color gamut @ ~115-117% (don't remember exactly) of the sRGB volume (but covering 99.5-7% of the sRGB gamut itself), so the primaries will be off more. If you're doing design work in applications that are color-aware, you could use profiles produced by others / a hardware sensor to calibrate your display in order to map the larger gamut to the sRGB gamut and get accurate primaries. As far as Windows, and non Color-managed applications go, the farthest you can get is grayscale calibration, where you basically get the grayscale accurate and align the RGB (and therefore CMY) saturation points so that the whitepoint (and the grayscale) are accurate at 6500K (or whatever color temperature you choose as the target).

For gaming, the PLS variant is the clear winner, being overclockable to 96Hz+ easily.

If you're really doing professional work, it'd be better to go with a more professional, much more expensive monitor with a 14-bit+ internal LUT that allows you to get the most accurate colors and the most uniform display (ala NEC, Eizo, etc...). If you're doing semi-pro work and don't mind the RGB primaries being a bit off, you could easily do with the Qnix + any (grayscale calibration) profiles available from the Qnix / X-Star PLS club (I have a few actually) without having to rely on color-awareness in the applications you use.
