Seems to me these type of monitors are harder to find these days. I've been using my qnix for years and it hasn't failed. But I too have wondered about newer stuff.

Pixio PX277

Crossover 27 Fast

Crossover 2795QHD

Crossover 27QX144 Cronus

Microboard M340CLZ

I found them on this website. There's others as well. Most of these should have display port and hdmi..

Yeah thats probably true. I sorely remember the nightmare of trying to win the panel lottery last time though. Guess I’ll have to check out the amazon black friday deals then. Thanks for answering.

cornbass I think I fried the circuit board of my qnix with static electricity. It only color cycles now I’ve tried on multiple computers and it even cycles in the bios. I should probably just throw it away but the panel is so good (no dead pixels, no backlight bleed) that I want to salvage it. I couldn’t find a replacement board online. I’m thinking maybe I can buy an old qnix for parts or any other apple cinema panel monitor and put my panel in. Would that work?

caenlen Why does original post of this thread now say to use NVCP instead of CRU?

Lot of games only work if I use CRU still, like Dragon Age Origins. I can't find the timings anymore, anyone care to share QNIX 110hz timings for CRU?

Some Tech Nub Monitor reselling is never great ROI. I managed to sell mine for $180 shipped two years ago. Probably a bit less now.

JMattes Hey Guys,

Are these monitors still in demand?
I have two QX2710LED, the ones with only the DVI-D slot and was looking to sell them.

Any idea what I can get for them?

i taped over the metal frame under the plastic frame and the bleeding was nearly gone. The problem is that you have to open the whole panel and lift the bl, defuser and panel. You need to be extremely careful.

kingnothing7 Just an update on my previously mentioned issue:

The indicator light on the power switching adapter does not come on. Is it worth buying a replacement adapter on the chance that that's the issue?
I ordered this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DN6DXC6/

Got it today, and my monitor is working as good as new now.
