So I've been researching all of the Korean 27" IPS display options....
I see a lot of forum activity surrounding the Achieva Shimian QH270, Catleap Q270, QNIX QX2700, Crossover 27Q displays and MicroCenter's Auria EQ276W
I am quite concerned about the defect-rate for these builds relating to sleep-mode, blinking/flickering, DOA, input lag. I would also like to avoid glossy displays in favor of matte finish.

But it does not seem like there has been any discussion on the (new?) QNIX QX27 & X-STAR DP2710 2560x1440 matte IPS displays.
Has anyone had any experience with either of these two models? Looks like they are using Samsung PLS panels?? biggrin.gif
And are they HDCP compatible? I plan on passing the display through my home AV receiver.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/27-X-STAR-DP2710-LED-Matte-Screen-2560x1440-QHD-PLS-Panel-Monitor-DVI-D-/261185339043?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item3ccfdbfea3

Thanks! -d3d

OfficerMac 03-25-2013 10:02 PM

I just ordered a X-STAR DP2710 from ebay. I'll let you know what its like when it arrives. This is my first IPS monitor so I might not be the best source of info.

d3daiM 03-25-2013 10:31 PM

excellent! thank you

That and this monitor is a PLS display, not an IPS. Nonetheless, I will look forward for your review.

TarballX 03-26-2013 06:18 PM

Now that's interesting.. Korean 1440p monitors with Samsung PLS panels instead of LG IPS panels.. and these are much cheaper than what the Catleaps are up to now. If my GPU had 2 DVI ports, I'd almost be tempted to grab one of these for a secondary monitor..

Would love to see some comparisons between these and the LG panel monitors!

d3daiM 03-26-2013 06:29 PM

Interested to hear your review back, OfficerMac!

OfficerMac 03-27-2013 09:15 AM

Got an email from Ebay and UPS and it it supposed to be delivered tomorrow afternoon. I cant wait!

MrGrievous 03-28-2013 12:11 PM

I'm looking forward to your input on the monitor you bought as well thumb.gif

OfficerMac 03-28-2013 02:52 PM

Turns out UPS was wrong about it being delivered today. Maybe tomorrow...

caenlen 03-28-2013 10:26 PM

I have the QNIX Samsung PLS being delivered on Saturday or Monday from seller HuluStar.

My Dell 23" TN has served me well, but I just can't stand some of the ghosting issues it has, on top of bad colors.

Looking forward to what you have to say as well OfficerMac, please be detailed in how much backlight bleeding you have, if any, etc.

caenlen 03-29-2013 11:57 AM

my qnix matte samsung pls just arrived, im typing on it now... omg this is amazing, no backlight bleed NONE, no dead or stuck pixels, PLS IS AMAZING THE COLORS ARE AMAZING OMG IM going to die!!!!

BEST $330 I HAVE EVER SPENT, HULUSTAR WAS THE SELLER HE HAS 100% FEEDBACK BTW, OMG THIS IS AMAZING

http://www.ebay.com/itm/130868312541?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649


u have no idea how beauitufl 1440p is until u see it... also I am loving this no backlight bleed, my TN panel had terrible backlight bleed on the bottom

caenlen 03-29-2013 12:34 PM

thought i would mention, I am not having any ghosting issues either in black ops 2. this is truly an amazing panel. my god I can't believe it was only 300 or so bucks. damn

OfficerMac 03-29-2013 01:36 PM

Finally got confirmation that the monitor was picked up by UPS and it will be delivered on Monday.

caenlen 03-29-2013 01:59 PM

Hulustar sent mine by DHL, I ordered it Wednesday morning, and received it from DHL Express at around 2pm EST time Friday. Damn fast shipping.

OfficerMac, you will not be disappointing this is the best monitor I have ever seen in my life. My buddy has one of those Dell U2713HM, and his backlight bleed is god awful, and his colors are a little off too.

This one literally has no backlight bleed, PLS is the way to go. Hands down.

Caenlen,

Excellent! I am very interested now to know if this thing is HDCP compatible. Any way you can find out for me? I really want to pass this through my AV receiver in dual screen without having any issues..
And does this has have a VESA compatible mounting plate on the back?

d3daiM 03-29-2013 02:44 PM

Does the bottom stand look like it could come off? Reason I ask is because people report that the Monoprice Korean IPS does not...which is just silly...and I want to wall mount.

caenlen 03-29-2013 06:54 PM

Yes, mine has a 100x100 VESA wall mount, and it is well designed too, should be easy to do.

the stand on mine is just fine... very sexy too, has a glass base.

HDCP compatible? I don't know, I just hooked it up with DVI-D straight to my sapphire 7950. they advertise it is though, at least Hulustar did.

But does it look like the stand will actually be able to come off?
And I don't see anywhere in the eBay listing that mentions if it is HDCP compliant. Does it have the 1920X1080 resolution option in your display properties? Do you think you can connect it to a PS3 and/or blu ray player with the use of a DVI>HDMI adapter to see if it plays back in 1080P?

Sorry..I just really want to know this monitor will work for my configration

CoolGuy90 03-29-2013 10:03 PM

@caenlen

How is the matte coating?

d3daiM 03-29-2013 10:28 PM

I asked Hulustar if it is HDCP compliant and he said it is not. Damn.

caenlen 03-29-2013 10:44 PM

The matte finish is real matte finish, there is no glare at all, its very impressive. Sorry I thought it was HDCP, I must have misread. My old Dell 23" matte had a coating on it with a bunch of black specks u could see it was really annoying, this has nothing at all like that, it truly is perfect.

I just played some Magika and omg the difference from 1080p to 1440p is night and day... wow... <3

caenlen 03-29-2013 10:46 PM

mine has two screws at the back on the bottom where the stand inserts, so my guess is yes it will come off... sorry mate but I have a ton of wires, I really don't want to have to uninstall and reinstall all these wires just to check >.> very sorry

i still say u should get one. hulustar is amazing!!! this is really thin too btw, i was not expecting it to be this thin. well done QNIX.

CoolGuy90 03-29-2013 10:51 PM

Do you have any pics?

I've been wanting to upgrade from my 1680x1050 TN Dell and this might be my next monitor from the sound of it.

caenlen 03-29-2013 11:26 PM

i am new to forums, not sure how to embed them, but i will upload some to imgur and link them for you, just give me 5 mins or so. brb

edit: as you can see its quite thin. no backlight bleeding on mine, and colors were spot on out of the box. not bad at all for $330 free ship... btw 1440p is amazing... if you play older games like dragon age or magika, even new games, viewing them in person at 1080p compared to 1440p is night and day...

BradF1979 03-30-2013 07:41 AM

Can you take a picture on a black screen so we can see any light bleed?

TarballX 03-30-2013 11:16 AM

Someone should try running one of these at 120hz biggrin.gif

shadowfm 03-30-2013 02:40 PM

Just ordered one today. Hopefully i don't get any dead pixels its my first experience with one of these Korean monitors

Lefik 03-30-2013 02:44 PM

How much input lag does this have? I'm looking to buy a 1440p monitor for gaming.

caenlen 03-30-2013 04:38 PM

Hey guys, sorry I didn't check the forum sooner.

Input lag is non-existant Lefik, in fact I would go as far as to say it is even better than my 2ms TN panel!!!

Shadow, I doubt if you get any dead pixels, and even if you do get 1, at 2560 x 1440p it is such a tiny dot you can barely tell.

Tarball - I am happy with 60hz, not risking ruining this perfect monitor. It is truly amazing.

BradF - there is literally no back light bleed, my camera would not be able to capture it anyway, its a piece of junk camera.

Played a few hours of black ops 2 and Magika last night, man it is so amazing gaming at 1440p, my sapphire 7950 runs everything at 60 fps so far, thats with settings cranked up as well, and 4x MSAA.

I am sure some games I will need to lower settings, but my 7950 is OC to 1200 core, so I should be ok for most games.

CoolGuy90 03-31-2013 01:55 PM

Ready tempted to get one, but I'm not sure how these monitors will hold up in the long run.

1Neveroutgunned 03-31-2013 04:06 PM

Pulled the trigger on one of these, I went with a glossy one from big cloth craft. I'll toss up some pics when it arrives.

caenlen 03-31-2013 06:52 PM

The one I got from hulu star that is linked in a previous post of mine on here is really well built. I honestly would expect this kind of quality from a $900+ official Samsung PLS model... it has a glass post, and a wood frame on the bottom, and the matte screen is perfect, no glare and no anti-glare coating is visible. I love it. Never going back to 1080p smile.gif

MrGrievous 04-01-2013 06:59 AM

Man now I'm just torn btw glossy or a matte finish also is there osd on this monitor?

caenlen 04-01-2013 07:20 AM

No osd, but it does have a solid power button, volume up and down, and brightness up and down. and they dont feel cheap either, its pretty solid build.

it does have built in speakers.

also, matte is amazing!!!! i cant stand seeing my reflection when gaming, it ruins the moment, lol

matte is so nice on this <3

what exact card you using ? The seller page say it only support DL DVI-D and not DL DVI-I ? not sure if my sapphire 6950 will support it

caenlen 04-01-2013 08:19 AM

I am using sapphire 7950 OC to 1200 core, which means it beats out a stock GTX 680 easy... so yeah... a 6950 im not sure i would do 1440p, it is rough on gaming. unless you play older games like WoW only, then a 6950 will be fine.

Hey OfficerMac what monitor did you use before?? What will you be compering your X-star to?? Do you have any experience with ips/Va panels. I'm thinking of getting X-star or QNIX for myself to ...

Edit: Outer packing doesnt look so good imo....

OfficerMac 04-01-2013 02:22 PM

Well, so far this monitor looks amazing. Played about a half hour of Bioshock Infinite and it looks beautiful.

Box was in great condition, UPS was careful with it and the 1/2" foam padding it was wrapped in helped too.



The monitor comes with a 6ft DVI-D cable, audio cable, power brick, and power cord with a US adapter. I used a regular power cable from my old monitor to plug into the power brick and it works fine. And this way it is grounded properly since the adapter only had 2 prongs.





The bottom of the stand comes detached so that it can fit in the box. I do not know if the part the stand connects to the monitor comes off. There are screws in the indentations on the bottom but im not sure if they are connect the the base.


There is some backlight bleeding on the bottom but unless the picture is very dark you can not see it. I do have one pixel in the top right corner that is stuck on white but it is almost impossible to see.


Overall, this monitor is awesome. Coming from a Vizio 32" LED LCD running at 1920x1080 @ 120hz i can see the difference and am happy with this monitor. If you have any more questions I would be happy to help in any way I can.

CoolGuy90 04-01-2013 05:58 PM

Do the monitors run cool?

Nice pics... just wondering tho, how do you find the response rate compared to your 120hz? someone said it feels even better than 2ms? I've got an Asus 27" 120Hz and I kind of don't want to go back to 60Hz anymore, but the resolution is ass so im just wondering.

alienguts 04-01-2013 06:44 PM

oh man it looks so nice but
Code:
Up 10 Bright Pixels are normal. These are not the reason of return or compensate. (Samsung PLS Pannel) / Dark (gray color) dot may be on the panel, it is not the standard of Defect.

mrsus 04-01-2013 08:59 PM

Wonder how the Samsung PLS panel compares to the LG IPS one, I guess since we all upgrading from TN panel it will be light and days different anyway. wink.gif

MenacingTuba 04-01-2013 10:31 PM

I seriously doubt this uses a PLS panel since it has the same re-branded bezel as a bunch of other IPS panels such as the CrossOver's, Monoprice and DGM's which all use LG IPS panels.

jfazz95 04-02-2013 01:32 AM

im definitely thinking about getting one...anybody know if I can use one with a side 1080 monitor or will they have to match resolution?

MehowM 04-02-2013 01:57 AM

Why? 1600p is better than 1440p...Unless you prefer a wider aspect ratio. Or did you mean 1600x900 Vs. 2560x1440?

I'd like to request a photo taken in the dark with the screen displaying a black background, please redface.gif

Also, did anyone try to overclock these babies?

hollowtek 04-02-2013 02:27 AM

nono, i meant 1600p lol. and yes, it's better, but these 1440p PLS samsung panels made me wet. and half the price...

caenlen 04-02-2013 04:14 AM

backlight bleed must be hit or miss, because my monitor has no backlight bleed at all, officermac it looks like yours has some but not much.


all I care about is that this is a true matte finish 1440p, also guys, I used tft LCD monitor website to try out different ICC profiles, I ended up using the Srgb download of Dell u3014 that was just recently posted, it really worked well for this monitor, i switched through several ICC profiles and that one seemed perfect.

MehowM 04-02-2013 04:25 AM

Caenlen did you watch any movie on it ?? Is details on black quickly moving pictures visible?? Is there any blur at all??

caenlen 04-02-2013 07:16 AM

I haven't watched any movies on it no, but I do play fast paced twitch fps games and I notice no ghosting, my TN panel Dell 23" 2ms did have ghosting though, and I no longer notice it on this monitor, so that is a plus.

Sniping 04-02-2013 02:51 PM

The price is pretty darn good on these. $330 and free shipping seems to one of the lowest prices out there right now...

That picture I took was with no flash and is what it looks like when sitting in front of a black screen. The bleeding is the yellowish tint on the bottom. There is no bleeding on the top of the monitor.


I have been able to overclock it to 75Hz so far. As for ghosting and input lag, I played 3 hours of Battlefield 3 last night and I can say it looks better than my Vizio did and I cant see any signs of ghosting or input lag. It's amazing how crisp text on websites is and how good games look at 1440p. I had to turn the setting down to high on Bioshock Infinite to get it to run at around 60FPS and it looks much better than it did with everything turned up at 1080p.

caenlen 04-03-2013 02:07 AM

Can you tell me please, how do I OC this monitor? I am using AMD CCC 13.3 btw.

and I concur about how amazing games look now, its like playing a new game, dragon age origins in 1080p; compared to this in 1440p, it was like night and day, I was like o.O how is this possible lol

This is tempting..
What do you guys suggest? I wouldn't want to have the kind of yellow bleed like OfficerMac
Does this look better than the IPS in U2412M? And then there is also the warranty issue.

And yes, more pics!

CoolGuy90 04-03-2013 09:04 PM

Looks like hulustar dropped the price to $317 while still offering free shipping.

BradF1979 04-04-2013 03:25 AM

shadowfm 04-04-2013 08:09 AM

I should be getting mine either today or tomorrow hopefully...

Seems like its stuck in customs now... =[

Should i ring DHL?


MehowM 04-04-2013 08:52 AM

You should wait until they contact you first. I wonder how much tax are you going to pay and what amount seller wrote on invoice. I'm thinking of getting this monitor for myself to Poland but there will be like + 23% of Vat more ....

EDIT: What seller did you buy from ??

Sniping 04-04-2013 09:04 AM

Offered $290 here, let's see what happens....

Got mine but won't be able to touch it really till after this work week, duty to Montreal was only 25$ so $355 total cost. Not too shabby. I'll post a slew of pics tomorrow I promise!

Atomagenesis 04-04-2013 10:40 AM

Im definitely going to buy one of these in 2 weeks, insanely good deal. Not really sure what the issue is with HDCP though? That wouldn't effect me if I had a 7770 or 7870 would it? Even with a dual-link dvi? I don't know anything about HDCP.

caenlen 04-04-2013 10:43 AM

hdcp is only if u want to hook up like a game console or blu ray player to it via HDMI/DVi converter.

if ur just using it for PC only, your fine

Atomagenesis 04-04-2013 10:46 AM

oh ok good, i don't even own an xbox biggrin.gif and I'm just going to get an internal Blu Ray player for my rig.

caenlen 04-04-2013 10:52 AM

yeah, that is what I do as well, i have a blu ray player in my PC already, lol

paid2kill 04-04-2013 11:51 AM

I just ordered one of these from hulustar for $317 last night to go with a new computer I'm going to build. This will be my first non TN panel ever so I'm looking forward to it. I had a tough time deciding between whether to get a 27in or 30in and whether to get an IPS or this PLS. I decided for the price difference to get the 27in and to try something new to the market, the PLS.

I'd also like to say now that price wise I found some good deals while I was searching around...

27in IPS for $310, pixel perfect for $335, and a 30in for $480!!!!!!!!!!
http://www.2560x1440monitor.com/index.php?route=product/category&path=20&sort=p.price&order=ASC
27in IPS for $300, catleap q270 for $310
http://www.yamakasiusa.com/

Now as far as HDCP goes since no one has tried it, there's a chance it works? (I know someone said they asked hulustar and he said no.)

Here is the dp2710 listed with HDCP.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/27-X-STAR-DP2710-LED-Matte-Screen-2560x1440-QHD-PLS-Panel-Monitor-DVI-D-/261185339043?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item3ccfdbfea3

...All in all I'm really looking forward to this new monitor coming from a 23in 1080p TN. And 75hz sounds like a nice bump.

caenlen 04-04-2013 11:56 AM

those are only cheaper because they do not include free shipping, ala the ones on ebay do.

shadowfm 04-04-2013 12:09 PM

I ordered mine from Green-sum

$330 isn't bad for a PLS monitor!

whoa... PLS with HDCP, I think im going to get the xstar too smile.gif besides, the guys name is EXCELLENTCASTLE LOLOLOL biggrin.gif must be good coming from a name like that.

CoolGuy90 04-04-2013 12:59 PM

Is there any way to validate that this is a PLS panel and not a SIPS?

Atomagenesis 04-04-2013 01:04 PM

Yes, by reading the product description.

Well yeah I know that but since the majority of these 2560x1440 Korean branded monitors are IPS I'm just a little curious.

IPS has a **** ton backlight bleed, and my PLS has none. officermac got some, which is unfortunate, but most PLS dont have any.

Jaju123 04-04-2013 02:44 PM

Does pls have 'white glow' like IPS?

white glow? not sure what this means, but my guess is no... its pretty xD even on my black wallpaper there is no "white at all" even on edges where backlight bleed might occur.

samsung pls = ftw

Actually both of those sites include free shipping which you would know if you had bothered to look. >.> You could have at least opened the site and thought before you jumped to that conclusion. The one site, yamakasiusa.com, says free shipping right at the top.

On that note, $480 for a 30in is quite a discount from ebay prices. Now it wouldn't be the monitor I'd get if I got a 30in... I'd get the 30q5 pro which seems like it might perform better and if nothing else it comes with a rotatable stand. But it gives you an idea of the profit margin on the monitors and might be useful in haggling a lower price. I know some of the ebay listings give you the option to offer how much you want to pay. An example would be pointing it out to a seller to encourage them to take off some from say a 30q5 pro.

Thoughts?

yamakasiusa.com seems fishy to me. Check out their About Us page, its filled with the default text from the website template..

Looks like i got screwed by Customs.. Just had a phone call from DHL saying i had to pay 59 euros.

The package is sitting at home now so i should be able to provide pictures when i get back from work at 5.

MehowM 04-05-2013 05:14 AM

330 $ plus 23% VAT makes around 59 euros additional costs..... Im going to order from green sum as well. But I'm going to ask him before shiping to put half price on invoice and add " refurbished" or smth. Ordering as a gift (without any tax) wont do well with such a big box i think:p

I found this on green-sum aukcion: "And we offering the best shipping service for buyers to ease burden of import tax" But i seems thats just the empty words

King4x4 04-05-2013 05:22 AM

Debating going for these screens with a PLS panel or any of the IPS variants going around.

BradF1979 04-05-2013 06:53 AM

So it seems two people have this panel here and our happy, but I still want to see more pictures and reviews before ordering....

shadowfm 04-05-2013 08:25 AM

I will be putting up quite a few pictures and my thoughts and initial impressions of the Monitor tonight when i get home.

paid2kill 04-05-2013 09:02 AM

I asked hulustar about import taxes and he said don't worry about it... "he does it the best way"

shadowfm 04-05-2013 10:32 AM

Omg!

Just got my monitor set up and omg! This is my first experience at 1440p.

No screen bleeding! No dead or stuck pixels this is seriously awesome. Looks really nice and i am super impressed.

I shall take some pictures for all you lovely folks now. Really happy! biggrin.gif

naelus 04-05-2013 10:34 AM

caenlen 04-05-2013 10:41 AM

shadowfm 04-05-2013 10:49 AM
