Has anyone received their monitor (any model) from dcsamsungmall yet? Curious to know how they have been packaging compared to the other 2.

Thanks.

Demand has been going up for some time now. I don't see the prices going up much, maybe 10% which still makes it a good deal. Some of the dealers will probably opt for higher sales over bigger profits which should keep the price relatively low.

Not too worried, that thread has -1 rating on SD, so the risk appears to be too much for that community. All the better for us biggrin.gif

The defect rate out of the box is hovering around 20%, which is pretty horrible, IMO, and we don't know how these will fare long term.
What you are getting is a bare-bones monitor with nice IPS panel, but cheap plastics and no scaler (which may be good if you are a gamer, though I've seen at lest one video showing this monitor lagging behind a Dell with a scaler :shrug:), a single input, a high defect rate, no manufacturer's warranty and that you'll have to send back to Korea at your own expense if it arrives DOA. I'd say this deal is best for people who are cheap by choice rather than necessity. If you buy one of these because it's all you can afford and then you have to ship it back to S. Korea, you're pretty screwed. Again, I'm not taking a dump on this deal, I just think a balanced assessment is in order.

So you rather pay $800 for the same screen but a dell brand or HP brand or $370 for this monitor. This deal is alot better price of the monitor plus $58 dollars 3 year warranty squaretrade ($429 price of monitor + warranty). Which defected rate are you talking about. Dead pixels getting one or two like people are reporting is defective? The monitor has 4million pixels if you didn't know. I have yet to see a monitor arriving DOA and monitor does come with Warranty, just like my sapphire videocard i use to have, warranty has to be shipped to china at owner expensive but people still buy sapphire videocards. This is an amazing deal and that is why in just 2 weeks has more than 3000 post. This aint has to do with being cheap , i expend $650 on a samsung 120hz monitor and having both side by side, this monitor keep the living crap out of my samsung monitor.

Thanks.

One guy ordered two monitors from him and both were thickly bubble wrapped. Another guy received his package without any bubble wrap at all and with cracks in the upper corners of the screen. (http://hardforum.com/showpost.php?p=1038441225&postcount=135)

I ordered a LED-P this morning. Hopefully I'll get my bubbles too.

People weigh risk differently, lots of people would simply have nothing to do with spending $400 to have an off-brand monitor shipped internationally regardless of a positive track record or deal value. Some people will pay higher prices+taxes to buy a monitor from Fry's or Best Buy, and pay extra for the store's extended service warranty that they'll probably never use. Not much reason to try and convince them otherwise, everyone values things in different ways for different reasons.

Good point thumb.gif

This has nothing to do with this but would like to say that i have a friend and he wanted to buy a TV. I told him that the same TV is cheaper in amazon $700 less. He's fighting with me the tv in bestbuy is better because it cost more. After arguing with him, i let him expend his money on the same tv from best buy...... go figure biggrin.gif

I think if you read what I wrote you'll see that I like the deal and (as I said) I would jump on it if I weren't saving for something else. I don't think it's for everyone. A potential buyer should look at the negatives as well as the positives and consider the consequences if things go wrong. Also, although I know you think everyone who has bought one has been happy, I'm pretty sure a few people were somewhat disappointed. If I were the guy with 4 or 5 dead pixels together in one spot, I know I would be. It's a gamble, and gambling is fine if you can afford it, but some people will prefer a little less monitor and a little more peace of mind.

The defect rate number is based on the poll. Yes, I am aware of how many pixels 2560 * 1440 comes to. If I have dead pixels on my screen my disappointment is not really going to be assuaged by the numbers, but I do understand the statistical probabilities.

It is being cheap, because you could have bought an Apple Cinema Display with a good domestic warranty (probably, depending on where you live) and a very low probability of defects. And if you had even one dead pixel you could probably return it, no questions asked. But since you have a $650 monitor along side the Korean import I assume you are being cheap by choice.

I've been trying to follow this thread but it's pretty tough keeping up. Could someone summarize for me what people have been saying about the power brick and the different monitors? It seems like there's somewhat of a concern about it. Thanks!
