That's why I would do a dead pixel check before shipping as requested biggrin.gif

That's an EMS estimate from Korea Post. For a 10 kg package, the estimate is 112800 won, which is ~$100 USD. That doesn't include any packaging either.

Holy god. I feel like its actually cheaper there. If its $100, they aren't making any money and probably losing money at $370.

Exactly, lol.

Didn't one of the sellers say the manufacturer would guarantee no defects for an extra charge?

Dead pixels aren't really a big deal with this res, my monitor developed a dead pixel near the upper corner and I never even noticed it till I was an inch away from the monitor running a blank white background.

Dream and Green both do (dead pixel free) monitor for a subcharge. ($30-$60). I order one from Dream without doing this and it came dead pixel free and zero backlight. Only bad part is the 67hz limitation. We only have to find out the board the other units have and we can order that from somewhere else.

Every one I stole this information from illi's [H]ard Forum post, these reviews have been over looked here (linked in the first post). The Korean site Playwares has a very good review system and has properly tested 4/5 of the 1440p displays.
Crossover 27q http://www.playwares.com/xe/maingame/19660693 8/10
Catleap q270 http://www.playwares.com/xe/21449157 8/10
Achieva qh270 http://www.playwares.com/xe/maingame/20925987 8/10
3VIEW PB2700" http://www.playwares.com/xe/20531033 8.3/10
The 3VIEW PB2700 had the best picture quality due to the average gamma of 2.10 vs the others 1.9; they will look washed out when compared to a monitor with better native gamma (2.2 is the target). One could always try to correct the gamma in their GPU's control panel.
All 4 models have very similar response times, contrast (1000-1200:1) default colour (close to the 6500k) and gamma (1.9 vs 2.22 target), except for the 3View, but factory calibration varies.
Page 3 of each review has a nice visual guide to each product. IMO appearance wise Crossover>Shimian>Catleap>PB2700
A 5th company also makes the First fsm-270hv
http://www.preegia.com/bbs/board.php?bo_table=04_2&wr_id=40
Playarwares also has a review of the PLS Samsung S27A850D if people are curious to see how these compare
http://www.playwares.com/xe/index.php?mid=maingame&document_srl=20427296
The IPS panels all had better colour temperature (close to 6500k vs Samsung @6000k, contrast (1000-1200:1 vs Samsung 900:1), and the gamma is a matter of opinion (1.9x3, 2.10 vs Samsung 2.40). An average gamma of 2.10 is the best and most natural, some may prefer the Samsung gamma. Some colours will appear more vibrant on the Samsung while some light colours will appear to dark vs pale/washed out on the IPS displays and the Samsung suffers from slight black crush. Reponse times are pretty much the same, though the IPS displays are a tincy bit faster. .


So we got 2 more monitors for our korean sellers to supply us with. The PCBANK 3VIEW PB2700 monitor with a better gamma score of 2.10 , and the FIRST Fsm-270hv. biggrin.gif Regarding the Samsung S27A850D , its been replaced with the S27A850T. Hopefully they have improved on the QC.

Well, we know from that PDF from Achieva posted earlier in the thread the basic model is ~$250 USD freight on board in Korea, in quantities of 100. So they're making about $20 per monitor. Not a huge profit margin by any stretch of the imagination.
post #2038 of 4784
It's kind of odd that they will check for dead pixels when they are selling the items as "New: A brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item in its original packaging (where packaging is applicable)." What are they supposed to do with the opened monitors if they find dead pixels?
post #2039 of 4784
Of course he can. But they're only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Dream-seller isn't the *only* one importing these from Korea, so when the Crossover's get some more competition, I'm sure the prices will be more in line with what the Catleaps are going for.

Well just realize that you are literally going to be amazed with this display if you do pick one up.

I have been sitting here all day firing up various games/videos/pictures just to gawk at the display, it's that amazing (coming from a 21.5 1080p tn panel).

I was debating on either going to surround or ordering a 24 inch ips from dell for around the same cost as this, happy as hell I found this thread before I made any other purchase.

Like someone else mentioned though, just ask the seller to do an inspection for you, even with the added cost it is half off of the closest competitor for these displays.
