I am looking at getting a Korean 1440P monitor and am looking especially at the QNIX QX2710 Evolution 2, which is a PLS panel but almost everyone who has one can OC to 120Hz/90+Hz or so it seems. Seems like a really great deal. What do you all think?

I would not mess with Ocing a monitor i would suggest get something like ASUS VG248QE Black 24" 144Hz 1ms for if your looking for high hz.

Poor mans PB278Q essentially, but thats not necessarily a bad thing, as the lack of components enables overclocking and reduced input lag. If you want it for anything but a PC its no use because it only has one input. If you aren't comfortable taking it apart to fix backlight bleed you better either have luck and hope it has none or learn no live with it. Most of the time they don't seem to have it too bad, same as any other monitor, and anyways the bleed will be hidden by the PLS glow at normal sitting distance.

Stand is non adjustable and flimsy, it has an external power brick, theres no OSD for adjustments (though I hear newer ones do have this) and the speakers are terrible.

Best thing I've got for my rig in my opinion, went from a VG278H to it and haven't regretted the decision in the slightest. So cheap and yet better than monitors twice the price if you are gaming.

Do you recommend going for one of the bypass monitors like this with only a DVI or one with more functionality. And you said that it likely won't OC as well if it has the board with HDMI/DVI/VGA? And also how much better looking color wise is a monitor that is true 10-bit and 1.07 Billion colors vs 16.7 Million and 8-bit??

Unless you intend to use it on a console theres no point what so ever to get the multi input ones.

I could use it for my PS4, but I could also just use my cheap TV I got on Black Friday. What is your opinion on 1.07 Billion color vs 16.7 Million for a gamer who loves tweaking and maxing out his games graphically through mods and such?

It's a good matte finish, not quite as good at getting rid of glare as others I've tried but still plenty good, doesn't blur pixels if thats what he means. I sit with my back to a window and never have an issue with glare.

Haven't got a clue with regards to your colour question.

Alright, I just don't want an aggressive anti-glare coating on my monitor
