Hi Quad, thanks for the suggestion. I gave it a go on frequencies ranging from 103hz to 120hz and had no luck. The distortion is not as bad as I have seen in the past when I use LCD reduced but still not OK. Does this mean I have reached my monitor limits or are there are ways around these problems?

Cheers.

Ok so i managed to take most of the yellowness out and make the whites appear more white......how?


Well, i actually turned up the brightness on the monitor itself, felt kinda stupid after messing about with software for a couple of hours doh.gif

Brightness does not change color accuracy appreciably. What you're seeing is the impact of higher brightness, which isn't going to remain comfortable over time, particularly at night.

Try switching between dark and bright scenes and see how your eyes go o.O

So I've been messing with these Korean "distributors" a little to see who's who. It's tough when you don't speak much Korean, but they usually speak English. They are really savvy and they think Westerners are dumb as rocks. Pretty much all of the eBay sellers are from the same company: BCC Korea, and they can be shady as Hell. Ask them a question they will tell you whatever you want to hear. Then you'll get whatever they feel like sending you; usually you get what you ordered. They don't seem out to get you so much as just too busy to care.

But I found a new "seedling", if you will. Gmarketmall is one of their new sellers. If you look at how they are doing this, it's pretty much the same approach as real-money-traders from MMOs. They make "bots". They had that account open since mid 2012 or something, then like a month ago they bought 8 small items for some feedback, and started selling snail cream, now they are selling monitors.

So I ordered an "Ultimate Perfect Pixel" Qnix from Gmarketmall this past Friday. I wasn't totally surprised that I did not get any feedback for paying immediately (and still haven't, though my item has been shipped). They have only 188 but 100% and I bet they are trying to keep that one from getting smashed up early. They have had lots and lots of different IDs in the past few years, and some of them are completely gone... for who knows why. Some of them, like Bigclothcraft (doesn't that sound like a RealMoneyTrader bot name???) just don't sell the monitors anymore.

At any rate this one that I ordered from literally has their paypal account set up as BCC Korea, inc. and has a customer service number listed. So I gave them a ring when they pissed me off. I specifically asked these jokers if they would ship my unit UPS. They gave me the big thumbs up, stating that UPS was already their usual carrier for US freight and it wouldn't be a problem. Monday rolled around, still no shipment, now Tuesday they have shipped it out DHL. Well. Screw that. I don't even care that much about the carrier, it's the principle. Whether they screwed up innocently or not, it seems there is this pattern with BCC Korea accounts of being shifty like that based on reading a lot of anecdotes from this thread and other threads all over the net.

Dude didn't seem surprised at all that the phone was ringing at 6:30PM Korea time, but he did seem a little surprised to be talking to an American. I would never call an individual's paypal number but a company, yep, and I know country codes and everything! I got the feeling this guy was eating dinner. He's like, "yes yes, give me your number I'll call you back tomorrow about it." Didn't realize what time it was there, but why did he answer the phone if they've already closed for the day? Are they using employee cell phone numbers for the customer service lines? They can't be, people would call at all hours of the night, maybe...... maybe I'm the only nut in the world who would do that. Anyway, I must have freaked him out because they were responding to my emails within minutes of the call, whereas I had got no response for an hour or so up to that point. They wanted to stop the DHL package and send it UPS tomorrow. To me that's like ordering soup at a restaurant where you saw the cook take a piss and not wash his hands. No thanks. I'll just overpay Ecomade Arena since they seem to have their **** together. I don't really like giving eBay and paypal little bits of my money all the time anyway. I got refunded pretty damn quick from GMarketMall, they are obviously watching that 188 close.

Just made an unexpected discovery!! Very pleased.

I bought a cheap HDMI to 24+5 pin DVI adapter, but I pulled out the last 4 pins to make it a 24+1 DVI connector.

I then connected it in the following manner:

QX2710 Input <-- 24+1 DVI adapter to HDMI <-- HDMI cable --> AMD 280X

1440p CONFIRMED at 60 Hz!

Am trying to calibrate and am a bit stuck at the following. Any help would be great.
What is the backlight to be chosen is it white LED or RGB LED?


And the other question was, I felt that viewing angle was not so great. and so that comes to my next question how does one know if the panel is a Samsung PLS panle?


This is for the Dual DVI Qnix single input model Qnix qx2710

White LED. Use HCFR and measure for color gamut and contrast ratio. Also, check if the panel has any yellow bleed at the edges in a dark room. Post the resulting color gamut and contrast ratio here. Be sure to name the instrument you have used as well.

Interesting. How stable is it?

It's very stable. It immediately went into 2560x1440 @ 60 Hz without any adjustment to any settings. I've been experimenting, but thus far I haven't been able to go higher than 60 Hz on any resolution, even trying combinations that would result in much lower bandwidth than [email protected] Hz.
