Glossy Qnix QX2710

Discontinued 2013-2014 2560x1440 Samsung PLS panels which either came with 120-160 LED PWM Dimming or no PWM.

Review by NCX of the original version without LED PWM Dimming or Flicker.

Video Review by NCX of the 2014 version with a different inferior panel and LED PWM Dimming or Flicker.

Qnix QX2710 Multi Hot

It's the same as the QX2710R, but has a nice brushed dark matte grey bezel which vastly increases the perceived black depth while the QX2710R uses a glossy black bezel which ruins the perceived black depth, but has more inputs and costs more.  I recommend buying the Multi Hot over the others since I have tested it.

It can be overclocked to 87hz via Dual-Link DVI without skipping or dropping frames.

Qnix QX2710R

Review by Playwares

The updated DP Multi True 10 is much better than the original since it is actually PWM/Flicker free, has double the contrast, faster and actually competitive pixel response times, and more accurate colour presets.  It is one of the best budget, multi-input matte 1440p options, but the slightly more expensive Asus PB278Q/PB278QR is better.  The QX2710R has faster pixel response times (less ghosting) and higher contrast than the QHD2730R, but the QHD2730R uses a PLS panel with less glow.

Qnix QX2730R

Review by Playwares.

The QHD2730R is similar to the QX2710R, but uses a PLS panel.  It's a great budget multi-input matte choice, but the slightly more expensive Asus PB278Q/PB278QR is better.
