This review is from: QNIX QX2710 Evolution ll Glossy 2560x1440 27" DVI-D LED Monitor For Desktop PC
Pros: - No dead pixels
- Easy 96Hz overclock (with NvCP, 3 seconds)
- No perceptible light bleed, or any I can see at all
- Next to my ASUS VG248QE 1080p, 144hz display - blows it out of the water ( and I still love that ASUS monitor mind you)
- Combined with the VESA mount to adjust how close and what height you position the screen, this is a whole other level of game IMMERSION.
- Phenomenal deal!!
Cons: - No OSD for settings
- Must install ICC profile for colors
- Casing, and stand are garbage. I got a VESA mount. Didn't bother to remove the clear stand stem on the bottom (just don't mind the look, and didn't want to bother opening the case).
- possible PWM dimming, but I don't seem to mind it.
- from other reports, I suppose it is a bit of a monitor lottery. I got a really good one.
- Some may not like the glossy screen, depending on lighting situation (next to my matte ASUS, it looks crystal and gorgeous). And there are light sources behind me, I just don't notice them when I am this immersed in a game.
Other Thoughts: For less than $300, the display is outstanding. I paid the same amount of money for my ASUS and the display quality is vastly superior on the QNIX. I've read that the pixel perfect version is not worth it, but it is for me. I also read that the glossy screen is terribly reflective and ruins the gaming experience, not so for me. The QNIX has no bells and whistles, just an awesome (and overclockable) display for a phenomenal price. I was saving up to get the ACER predator, but $800 was just too much for my blood (not a rich man). I got this monitor, a decent VESA mount, and The Witcher 3 complete for HALF what the ACER costs and I could not be happier so far. It may not have the added bonuses that more name brand displays do, but if you're looking for a wonderful, budget display this is SO it. I will also update if any issues arise, although from all accounts I've read this is truly a well made panel (albeit placed in a cruddy housing).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great card. Replaced 2 680s in SLI, and beasts that set-up handily. The 6Gb frame buffer is really nice, and it has the horsepower to push 1440p well above 60 fps, and even makes 4k playable with one card (haven't tried this one though). Overall, great horsepower, and build quality. Very Happy.
Cons: Never received the added promotional code for Arkham Knight. I know the launch was busted, but it's a big part of why I pulled the trigger so earlier on purchasing this card. That's pretty much it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: 1. Out of the box OC at 1189 Mhz
2. Great performance
3. Stupendous deal (right now anyway) for a Gtx 680
4. Sturdy design
5. Nice black backplate
Cons: Card is massive. Three slot card and it's almost an inch longer than my Gigabyte 680.
Other Thoughts: Just got this card today and it is awesome. For $360 this is a steal of a deal. Not to mention the $30 rebate and free Splinter Cell Blacklist that I will be selling, this a a Gtx 680 under $300. The box has GPU Boost at 1084 Mhz, and this particular PCB boosts to 1189 Mhz out of the box. Quite pleased with ASUS and will probably continue to buy their products. Also Newegg rules. Got the card in two days with the cheapest shipping option.READ FULL REVIEW
