4 out of 5 eggsQNIX QX2710 LED Evolution ll SE - great panel, not so great enclosure and stand

Pros: Amazing overall picture quality and color accuracy right out of the box, blows all my older monitors (TN, IPS, AH-IPS, variously from LG, Dell, and Samsung) out of the water. It's not just because the other monitors are 1080p resolution, as the Qnix still looks better with 1080p content. Movies look gorgeous on the QX2710. I thought my Dell S2740L AH-IPS monitor was ok, but on the Qnix, the whites look truly white, colors are more accurate, and black levels are way deeper. Also, I can now watch movies without needing a dark, curtained room to minimize reflections. I wanted a glossy screen at first, but the price increase wasn't worth it for me, and the matte treatment is minimal compared to older types. It greatly reduces glare without being obtrusive.

This model uses the same Samsung PLS panel as an Apple Cinema display - without the nice enclosure and stand, built-in picture adjustability, or input options, but at a fraction of the price.

It can be overclocked for smooth gaming (up to 120Hz, depending on your particular unit) with the use of third party tools - see Other Thoughts below. From my research online, it's guaranteed to get 96Hz minimum. I was easily able to get 110Hz out of mine, though at 115Hz to 120Hz I was getting green lines across the top of the screen. I may do some more tweaking to see if that can be fixed, but I'm happy for now. Lag is low for a non-TN panel.
Even if you have no intention of overclocking, and leave it at 60Hz, the picture quality alone is worth it.

Mine has zero dead pixels and very minimal backlight bleed at lower left, not enough to notice while gaming or watching movies. Wide viewing angle without color distortion, though like most people I tend to watch mine while sitting directly in front of it, not to one side.

Comes with a 5-foot dual-link DVI cable with ferrite chokes.

Shipping speed - I placed my order early Tuesday morning and the monitor was on my doorstep (in San Francisco) on Thursday evening.

Cons: Cons are mostly related to construction quality of the enclosure and stand, not the panel itself.
It has a low, wobbly stand with stiff tilt adjustment and no swivel or height adjustment. Removing the stand requires some limited disassembly to access the screws.
Also, be aware that the VESA mount threads are both narrow and very shallow. You may even need to use spacer washers if you can't find short enough bolts. Measure first, and be careful not to strip the threads or screw the bolts in too deeply.

No OSD, just buttons underneath for brightness, volume, and power on/off. Also a dummy button on the front, for some reason. The brightness button raises/lowers brightness in too large increments for my liking, but gets it close enough.

Overall construction is sub-par, the bezel is glossy back and reflects light a lot. The bezel *may* also put pressure on the LCD panel in some areas, leading to backlight bleed. This might be relieved, in some cases, if you are willing to remove the bezel and add electrician's tape to the metal surrounding the panel in affected areas, at your own risk. Fortunately, mine has very minimal backlight bleed in the lower left corner.

There is a risk of dead pixels, and up to five are allowed per the warranty. I have not noticed any in my unit though. Backlight bleed is considered "normal" by the manufacturer, though I don't know how much.

Power on LED is overly bright blue, turning to red when power is off.

Built-in speakers are atrocious - imagine a pair of cheap ear buds amplified by a tin can and you'll get the idea. My $15 6" laptop soundbar from Radio Shack is audiophile in comparison. Really, I'm not kidding.

If you happen to get a defective monitor, you'll have to deal with shipping it back to Korea. I was lucky, as most seem to be, but check the seller ratings and feedback.

The color was slightly saturated out of the box, but barely so. Adjusting color profiles can help with this.

Other Thoughts: Not really a con, since the monitor works as intended out of the box at the standard 60Hz, but it will need some tweaking to correct the gamma at higher refresh rates. I would recommend searching for/looking at the qnix-x-star-1440p-monitor-club at overclockdotnet as they have some excellent guides on overclocking and setting color profiles. They also have instructions on how to fix backlight bleed issues.

The cable for the power brick comes with a Korean-USA plug adapter - don't bother with either if you have a spare PC power cable as it will work just fine with the three-prong power brick.

Apparently only the single input (Dual-DVI) model is suitable for overclocking, not the multi-input version, which is why I bought this one. I am not sure what the "SE" designation means vs the QX2710 "non SE" version. I've read somewhere it means "Second Edition" and may be slightly substandard in some respect, but I have not encountered any defects in my model.

You'll need a powerful video card to run newer games with very high or ultra settings and get high FPS at 1440p resolution. If you can only get around 60FPS or less there's no point increasing the refresh rate. On the other hand, games still look amazing on this PLS panel and input lag is low enough that I don't notice it. I'm using SLI GTX 670s on my gaming rig, which does ok, but at lower settings than on my 1080p monitor or plasma TV. I'll probably upgrade when the 800 series comes out as 2GB VRAM is holding me back with this 1440p monitor and games such as Watchdogs.


Bottom line: Be aware that some work is required to replace the stand or do overclocking, and that you take a chance of having some defects like dead pixels or excessive backlight bleed.
Despite this and the other Cons I mentioned, in my opinion they are far outweighed by the Pros.
This monitor is amazing value for its display quality whether you want to overclock it for gaming or not. If 60MHz is adequate, and you need extra inputs, you may want to get a multi-input model (these use an AHVA panel rather than PLS).

It's almost worth 5 eggs due to the outstanding panel and low price, but value isn't everything, so I'm deducting 1 egg for the poor stand, overall construction and those terrible speakers. Still recommended though, and I don't regret my purchase at all.
