QNIX QX2710 27-inch Monitor Review and Giveaway

Erez Zukerman 30-04-2014

A 27-inch 2560×1440 display with a high-quality panel can set you back almost $1000. It doesn’t have to, though: The QNIX QX2710 can be found on eBay from South Korea for a fraction of that price, at around $320-$350. What sort of screen do you get for that money? Let’s find out.



The full model name of this South Korean monitor is QX2710LED Evolution II SE. The no-name brand company is a bit of a ghost, but they do use 27-inch Samsung-made WQHD PLS panels in their products. Very briefly, let’s go over some of the QX2710’s key features: it accepts Dual-link DVI input, has a viewing angle of 178 degrees, consumes 45W while operational and 0.5W in standby. It also boasts a contrast ratio of 1000:1, brightness of 300cd/m2, a 6 millisecond response time, and a native 60Hz refresh rate, although it can be overclocked to support 120Hz.

The Competition

To understand just how cheap the QX2710 is, let’s look at some of the top-selling 27-inch monitors you can find on Amazon today. All have the same panel size, and all support the same 2560×1440 resolution.


The Apple Thunderbolt Display MC914LL/B has an LED-backlit IPS panel, comes with 3 USB 2.0 ports, a Gigabit Ethernet port, a FireWire 800 port, and a Thunderbolt port, too. It costs $950.



The Dell UltraSharp U2713H boasts “stunning color performance” as well as a host of ports (USB 3.0, DisplayPort 1.2, mini-DisplayPort, DVI-DL, HDMI). It can be had for $799.


Finally, the CROSSOVER 27QW seems like an exact duplicate of the very screen I am reviewing. Just like the QNIX QX2710, the Crossover ships from South Korea by Fedex or EMS, doesn’t have any fancy ports, and accepts Dual-link DVI. It costs $314, and mainly serves to show that there’s nothing special about the QNIX QX2710 specifically. This is just a review of a generic inexpensive South Korean monitor that can be had under many different names and brands for similar prices.

What You Get



You get pixels. Lots and lots of pixels. But before we get to those, let’s talk about packaging and exterior trim.

The monitor came well-packed, in two nested boxes. It made the trip from South Korea and arrived unscathed, with even the inner retail box looking in good condition. In the box, I found the monitor itself, as well as a power cable, a Dual-link DVI cable (which later proved instrumental), and an audio cable for the screen’s tiny 5W built-in speakers.


These buttons work, but don’t expect an on-screen display to show you what you’re doing.


Trim is where the monitor’s price really shows: It feels like a high-quality display panel crammed into the absolute cheapest plastic casing that could be made. It’s not just a matter of taste, but has practical ramifications, too. The monitor comes with VESA mounting holes, but it also comes with a protruding plastic stem that plugs into an included base.


That’s what the stem looks like, removed from the monitor

If you want to mount the monitor using the VESA holes, you’re not going to want that stem peeking out the bottom. Unfortunately, removing that stem is a comical ordeal. You have to unscrew the front panel, pop it off the monitor (yes, really), then release the latches holding the display panel in place, and finally, unscrew the mounting stem from inside. Needless to say, any sort of warrant you had on the screen would be null and void by the time you’re done with this. Still, I went ahead and did this, capturing most of the exciting process on video as you can see above. I didn’t break the screen, thank you for asking.



Mounting the screen served to remind me again of its cheap quality: The VESA mounting holes are so shallow, the screws that came with my LX Dual monitor arm from Ergotron wouldn’t fit all the way in. Even screwed in as much as they’d go, so much thread remained outside of the hole, that the screen was shaky. I solved this by using nuts as thick washers.

Display Quality

QNIX QX2710 27-inch Monitor Review and Giveaway qnix qx2710 monitor review 1

With the stem removed and the monitor securely mounted on my workstation, it was time to plug it in. This is where I discovered one of the pitfalls of a Dual-DVI link: It is very sensitive to noise. I first tried connecting the monitor to my computer using a 10-meter cable (due to the structure of my workstation, I wanted a long cable). This resulted in lots of noise and image artifacts on the monitor, making it basically unusable.


I then switched to a shorter cable (Dual-link DVI as well, of course), and the issue became even worse: It was so bad, no image displayed on the screen, but only geometric color patterns strangely reminiscent of modern art. Fun, but not so useful.

The Dual-link DVI cable that came with the monitor saved the day: I plugged it into my monitor and my GeForce 660’s Dual-link DVI port, turned the screen on, and presto. I got a crystal-clear, sharp view of my desktop at 2560×1440. It was a glorious moment.

Here is what truly matters: This display is very, very good. Colors pop; the screen is fast and responsive. Everything is pin-sharp, and there’s more than room enough for two or three windows on the screen at any given time.


Watching movies on the QNIX QX2710 is an immersive experience. Color reproduction is very good, blacks are indeed black, and nothing feels overly blown out. Text is smooth and crisp, and images show graduated tones I hadn’t noticed on a previous monitor.

The Verdict

QNIX QX2710 27-inch Monitor Review and Giveaway qnix qx2710 monitor review 2

Yes, getting it to work was an adventure, but in the end, what I am left with is a killer 27-inch monitor that cost far less than anything I would get locally. When you buy a monitor like this, you know there are going to be some trade-offs. Fortunately, all of the trade-offs with the QNIX were in getting it to work. Mounted and plugged in, this monitor feels like a killer bargain.

Our verdict of the QNIX QX2710 27-inch Monitor:
MakeUseOf recommends: Buy it.

    I've bought all my electronics on line...Amazon and Ebay can't be beat because they stand behind every sale. I once bought a laptop from Amazon right before Christmas, and the Post Office said they delivered it (probably to the wrong house) and Amazon made the seller send me another one!

  66. Zaid M

    Visiting a store helps you to interact with the staff and ask him the pros and cons and reviews of other customers
    but online store has a large number of options to choose from

    i would prefer to check things online and go the local store and buy it

  67. Tava H

    I use a stoe only if I am undecided about a particular product, and I want to compare how it actually feels when I use it. But I still make 90% of my purchases online as the prices are almost always unbeatable by Brick and Mortar stores.

    Generally speaking, I would do either. It's not exactly a purchase I make all the time, though, and it just happens that the last few have been online, in part to get good deals on really big monitors, deals which seem to have dried up with the move to LED backlighting :)

  171. Catherine M

    I have no issues with buying such items online because I have done so already! Sure, it's great to put your hands on a product and/or see. In case, it might be nice to see the clarity, etc. of the screen. This is probably not the best product review video you all have done. It took over 6 minutes for him to fiddle around getting that stem off. I also don't totally understand why he needed to do so. Guess I missed something in the review.

    May 5, 2014 at 7:53 am

    Stores? Are those things still around? (Just kidding - mostly.)
    As far as I'm concerned every store address has a .com in it.

    Also - I really, really want this monitor. I've been eyeing it for about 3 months but can't spend the money on it right now. But it is drool-worthy, and I really need this.

  274. Suvadeep P

    The style of this monitor is a lot better than a lot of similar monitors I've seen on eBay. I guess as they're all pretty much the same panels, the decision-makers are aesthetics and packaging.

    I prefer to shop online simply for the hands down the best selection. And with proper research, you can get a pretty accurate idea of quality too.
    I bought my current screen online, and been living happily with it for 5-6 years, although it's getting time to upgrade from the more uncommon 1280x1024 non-widescreen.

  293. Ben R

    I think that I would go to some stores, look for the desired model and then i will search it online to buy it cheaper

  294. Johnna Rhodus
    May 2, 2014 at 7:53 am

    It just depends what I feel like at the time. I'd buy in store or online,it doesn't really matter to me.

  295. Sean
    May 2, 2014 at 7:46 am

    I'd still visit a store.

  296. Vic L
    May 2, 2014 at 7:42 am

    Either of the two, but most of the time. I much prefer online because of my working schedules.

  297. Mehul B
    May 2, 2014 at 7:30 am

    I would first go to a store to check everything and then buy it online at cheaper price ;)

  298. Jonathan S

    Online has only advantages: more choice, mostly cheaper prices and less stress.

    I'd preferably visit a store.

  300. Joses L

    It depends, but most likely I would buy it online if shipping wasn't such a big hassle.

    I prefer to visit a store, to make sure that the product is working and has no defects, but then if it's cheaper, why not online?

  305. Peter V
    May 2, 2014 at 4:55 am

    I'd much prefer to buy my next monitor, or any electronics, really, online. I always find the best prices online. Plus, whenever I make a significant purchase, I get all my info online before I buy, and I constantly find that in-store sales people lack the knowledge to answer my questions, especially at the big chain stores, where you might find competitive prices. The only thing physical stores have going for them is instant gratification, but as an adult, I can stand to wait a little while for my new toy.

  311. JeffC

    May 2, 2014 at 12:45 am

    I think you should have provided more information about the I/O ports.

    From eBay, it has stereo audio out (RCA), HDMI, a dual DVI, a VGA and a power input.

    I'd buy a gaming monitor online because of the amenity of your own home, and it facilitates my life, like doing other things like playing videogames while you wait for the monitor.

  319. Daniel M
    May 1, 2014 at 11:34 pm

    well stores around here usually only have low end models, so probably online

  324. jason

    Cheaper online, but you can actually see them in the store. I'd go see it in the store, and then order it online.

  327. Julian
    May 1, 2014 at 10:04 pm

    Yes! I am considering buying a monitor online and specifically one of these 1440p monitors though not sure about the need to upgrade my desktop computer first.

  328. Jarred S
    May 1, 2014 at 9:55 pm

    I bought my current monitor online and will most likely buy my next one online as well, as the best deals are almost always found online for electronics

  329. Terry M
    May 1, 2014 at 9:54 pm

    Online because you can usually get better deals.

  330. RB
    May 1, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    For those looking for 1440p monitors give monoprice a try. I haven't personally bought one but I was close to buying one from Monoprice mainly because of the warranty you get. Just make sure what warranty Monoprice offers for the specific 1440p monitor.

  331. Mesut Yaver

  334. Wei Lian L
    May 1, 2014 at 8:09 pm

    Still prefer the store as I can review the monitor before buying

  335. Andrei A

    all my monitors are bought online

  336. Tom Crepeau
    May 1, 2014 at 7:55 pm

    While I need to see the monitor, where I get it can well be the internet. But, if I'm in a store to see the monitor, chances are I'll buy it there unless I already know it costs SUBSTANTIALLY less to get it on-line.

  345. Jorge P

  346. Josef Reith

    been buying through net for over ten years cheaper unless there is a sale on

  347. John

  350. Alex K
    May 1, 2014 at 5:52 pm

    I would go to a store to see what the monitor looks like in-person and then purchase online as it will usually be cheaper there.

  351. Joel G
    May 1, 2014 at 5:49 pm

    I prefer to visit the store and get the feeling for my next TV, but once I know which one I want, I'll go online and see if I can find it cheaper, if so I'll buy it online.

  352. Bill
    May 1, 2014 at 5:44 pm

    I've bought most of my monitors online. Right now I am using a 22-Inch 120 Hz 3D-Ready Monitor that I bought online. Super fast refresh rate also requires dual-dvi.

  353. William Peckham
    May 1, 2014 at 5:44 pm

    I would prefer to purchase locally, but after looking at the local price and quality, that is no longer an option. Online is the only place to get what I want.

  354. Min Xuan X
    May 1, 2014 at 5:33 pm

    I have never bought standalone monitors before, so I don't know much about buying monitors online. It kind of depends largely on the price, so I'll see for myself to decide.

  355. Fritz G
    May 1, 2014 at 5:18 pm

    I always buy my monitors online; there is no real selection where I live, and prices are too high for what is available.

    Visit a store to check closely but buy online as i will get better deal ;)

    After checking out reviews and researching I would definitely buy online

  358. Creslan Williams

    I prefer walking into a store and leaving with the item

  359. Tony
    May 1, 2014 at 5:01 pm

    I'd still prefer to see and touch the monitor first...

  360. Tom Ozminkowski
    May 1, 2014 at 4:47 pm

    I would have no problem buying a monitor on-line. The only store near me that would carry something like this would be Best Buy, and I try not to buy from them if possible.

  361. Ryan W
    May 1, 2014 at 4:44 pm

    If the return policy doesn't double-charge shipping, I will risk online purchasing.

  362. MarkTGT

    Depends on the return policy and who pays return shipping.

  365. Rick McClenthen

  366. DanQ
    May 1, 2014 at 4:11 pm

    Ideally view in store but online deals often much better. This is a case in point; the saving is substantial. Reviews, such as this one, give guidance and advice. Really, these days, there is no need to visit bricks & mortar.

  370. Paul T

    I like to check out what features are available for monitors and how they perform. The only way to do that is in a store. That said if I don't like the price I may look online. Also I am far more likely to get more features from online as where I live the availability is limited to what the store wants to sell

  377. Bruce
    May 1, 2014 at 3:06 pm

    I wouldn't object to buying a monitor online, as long as the price and quality are comparable.

  378. Jason

  386. Anthony

    If the warranty was right I would certainly consider buying online - having reviews of the exact model being sold always helps!

  387. Richard Bonifacio

    Buy online.

  388. Cora R
    May 1, 2014 at 2:18 pm

    Online is usually cheaper and I can base it on reviews.

  400. Cristina Mocanu
    May 1, 2014 at 10:35 am

    I would trust to buy online a monitor or any expensive high-tech thingie only from reputed vendors, big and old retailers. Otherwise i'd like to see it first.

  401. Mike
    May 1, 2014 at 10:19 am

    At this point, I think I would be comfortable enough buying a monitor online if the reviews were indisputable and detailed.

  402. Ajith Sen

    If I get a good price online, then definitely.

  403. paulie

  404. Ben

  407. Rena

  412. kvothe
    May 1, 2014 at 6:04 am

    I prefer online. While there undoubted advantages to shopping in a store, the increased options online make it better. Though if I can find the monitor I want in a nearby store, I'd probably go get it there.

    I always check reviews online then I go to the store to see if the product is appealing enough after that I compare the prices both online and in the store then I get the one which is cheaper :)

  417. Mark Christiansen
    May 1, 2014 at 5:06 am

    ONLINE OF COURSE! I can take my time and research, take more time out and go think about the choices. Money is precious so when I spend it, I don't want to be rushed by a salesperson at the store; or an out of stock problem.

    Almost every time i buy from online, but if i want an item to be good quality or atleast have good guarantee then i buy from a local store or trusted local online shop.

    Either way is fine. I still love going in the store to interact with all the features of the TV but if the price is nice and the reviews are good, I don't mind buying it sight unseen.

    Look in person, then find the cheapest price in-store or online.

    I will check monitors in the store just to make sure I like the image and controls, then I'll buy online.

    I actually did buy mine online, straight from BenQ Europe Shop, speedy delivery and most important, free! Awesome stuff!

    Anyway i love this monitor and it looks very interesting, your review kicks ass as usual, i might consider it in the future!

    I wouldn't mind buying a monitor online! I got a new LED TV online last month!

    I prefer buying monitors in store, so i can see with my own eyes which one is best for ME. Sometimes others are better or a higher quality brand but something with it bothers my eyes or doesn't seem as clear and crisp.

    I always buy monitors online. Brick and mortar is to expensive.

    I prefer to buy online but I make a point to check out reviews and tests prior to that. Thanks.

    It's nice to physically see a monitor's display resolution in person. I will usually check one out in-store before purchasing online.

    I would be willing to buy a monitor either in a store or online. I have had good and bad experiences with both.
