Back in November, a close friend of mine babbled something about high end Korean monitors for cheap during one of our drunken late night chats. He had just read some Qnix QX2710 reviews, and though I was intrigued, I promptly forgot.
Then a few months ago I was browsing around on Reddit, I mean… working hard, when I saw someone mention a certain QNIX QX2710 27-inch Monitor. I started pulling up Qnix QX2710 reviews, and sure enough this was the very same monitor my friend had mentioned so many months ago – a 2560×1440 resolution PLS display with a 178 degree viewing angle, 1000:1 contrast ratio, brightness of 300cd/m2, a 6 millisecond response time, and a native 60Hz refresh rate.
But that’s not the best part, it can also be overclocked to 120hz!
If that doesn’t get you all hot and bothered, then you should probably leave now. But for the rest of you, here’s a comprehensive video review that covers every part of the monitor, including removing the stand so you can use your own. It’s a must watch if you have any interest in owning this awesome monitor. Did I mention that panels like this usually sell for over $1000?
Now, if you were paying attention, you might have heard that most people order these monitors on eBay. This is where I was going to list off vendors, including my own preferred source, but I’ve decided not to do that.
You see, there are hundreds upon hundreds of vendors, and instead of listing them all off here, I’ll simply link you to a list of them with reviews. Said page also includes a mountain of extra technical information on both QNIX and X-STAR monitors (they’re virtually identical), including how high people could overclock, how to de-bezel, and a slew of color profiles. It’s a great resource for anyone still going through all the Qnix QX2710 reviews and trying to make a decision.
Lastly, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask me! I own the X-STAR DP2710LED which is pretty much identical to the QNIX QX2710, and I’ve actually removed the base and installed my own as well. Mine hasn’t overclocked as well as some panels, but I’ve gotten a solid 96hz out of the deal. Not bad for a monitor that costs less than $350.
