    QNIX 2710 Issue

    I've had a QNIX 2710 for a little over a month and have an issue.

    HTPC/Coffee Table Gaming Keyboard/Mouse

    I recently moved into an apartment and decided to forgo the conventional LCD/Plasma for a under coffee table mounted short throw projector (BenQ w1080st). It's absolutely amazing for movies, which is the majority of my non-PC screen time. The only game I'm really playing at the moment is...

    21:9 - 2560X1080 larger than 29"?

    I've used a 37" Westinghouse at about 3.5ft away for seven years now. I love gaming and watching movies on it and don't mind regular browsing/productivity.
