That's got a plasma deposition coating
which IMO is superior to glossy.
I OWN the QNIX QX 2710. I've had it for 2+ years. It is NOT the better monitor.
Mine is PWM/flicker free and can OC to 120Hz, but unfortunately the newer ones are NOT the same and are of much lower quality, using PWM dimming. 120Hz isn't good on this monitor either, it doesn't skip frames like all the multi-input monitors do, but the colors are so washed out and there's so much motion blur the difference is... not worth it.
Really. In addition, the persistence is so bad at 120Hz that you essentially can't keep it there for extended periods of time. You'll have to run a jscreenfix screensaver or else expect to see windows burned in for a hour or two after being up for <10 minutes.
Crossover 27QW SAKWA may not be the best choice though because the glass covers the bezel and reduced perceived black contrast, as well as PDC making the blacks look a little more greyish, although apparently the contrast and whites are so improved that it makes up for it everywhere except very dark scenes. Then again if you like viewing it with low brightness at night and have inverted web pages or run a dark high contrast theme in windows like I do it may not be as satisfying as a matte panel.
Really tough choice.
I'm probably going to go with whichever has less motion blur/better pixel response time for gaming since that's my issue right now. Someone asked me why I had pointer trails turned on and that was the last straw. lol (I don't!!!)
Unfortunately the chinese review for the Crossover 27QW doesn't have that same opinion or comparison from NCX/Menacing Tuba that makes tit easier to compare. I can't tell what the hell they're talking about half the time, I just want an expert's opinions to help me make my choice! Too bad he didn't review the 27QW or 27QW SAKWA...
