Yea the Qnix QX2710. It seems like the vast majority of these are received without any dead pixels. I had the monitor at 110hz but backed it down to 96hz. 110hz was 99% stable but it caused minor distortion in the background on the top right of the screen. I would back it down to 105hz but you need color profile to match unless you have your own color calibration tool. 96hz seems to be a very common clock so there are a lot of profiles for it.
With the correct color calibration this thing looks amazing! Not only is it the resolution but the color contrast and vibrancy is so eye poppingly good. In terms of refresh rate, I see NO difference between the VG278H and the Qniz at 96hz. I had played exclusively on that Asus monitor for over a year and I fell in love with it. The smooth crisp ghost free 120hz could not be beaten. I was really worried in transitioning from that monitor to this one. I knew I would pick up even on the slightest changes. I really expected to start to see ghosting since I went from a 2ms response time to 6ms.
All that was proven false. I have played numerous games and they don't look or feel any noticeably different, except for the higher res
BF3 online looked just as good. I also threw in dirt 3 and again it killed it. Both of these games are specific games that really were a true night and day difference with 120hz. Not to mention games were running as good if not better at these resolutions. That's because this high res allows me to disable AA. I probably wouldn't have initiated selling my 680 for a 780 if I knew the frames were going to run this good :/
The only time I notice anything different is when dragging a window across the screen. I guess this is because the text starts to get slightly blurry depending on how fast it's going. It's still readable but I vividly remember this process seeming to only limited by your eyesight on the Asus. Again this is the pickiest thing I could find and I am usually a pretty picky person when it comes to my tech.
It was $290 shipped although I received the squaretrade 3 year warranty for $40 totaling it to $330. Ordered it Thursday, Shipped out Friday, and I received it on the east coast Monday.
I do have some blacklight bleeding but it's pretty minimal and unnoticeable most of the time. I think I should be able to fix this by opening the case and applying some electrical tape. It is supposedly fairly easy to do. Even if it doesn't correct it, I don't regret for a second about getting this monitor as a replacement.
You really don't have a excuse (as a gamer) not to get one of these, unless you really want 3D of course. I honestly tired of 3d vision rather quickly. Don't get me wrong I really enjoyed it occasionally but I just wasn't using it enough to be justified. The tech didn't quite seem to be there yet, at least for myself.
And I have already hijacked the hell out of this thread so if your curious about anything in specific just pm me!Edited by Outlawed - 7/15/13 at 10:16pm
