The funny thing is he already left me feedback on the day of the purchase, but I've yet to hear anything else. I'm just REALLY excited for this monitor to come in (as I've been gaming on a 1080P monitor on this amazing system, and I feel like I'm disgusting the PC gaming community doing that).

Can't wait for it I arrive! It's going to replace a dual 2209wa setup on my new 3930k+GTX 670 setup.
I'll post an update once I receive it.

If seller use UPS, you will cry. Base on UPS rule, if a gift's price more than 20 or 30cad , you will pay customs fee.

so I have got QH270 Lite a couple weeks ago from red-cap.
From day one I have been receiving defecting problems (sometimes only backlight would display nothing else)
Now today only backlight will display no picture no matter what i do.
tried differnt computer, tried differnt graphic cards, tried different cables

Im hoping not to do this but I heard a loose wire from inside could cause something like this from my understanding is this correct? I did try searching but does anyone know of a guide or how to open this monitor
*hopefully wont be needed if red-cap helpes me but not going well at this point...

I didn't receive anything from Dream-Seller for almost 48 hours before contacting me with the tracking info directly.

I'd say not to worry but it's based only on one interaction with this seller so I dunno ...

DHL is just as bad as UPS when it comes to duties and taxes.

It doesn't help that if they have to hold a package for you, they make you go to Brampton or some garbage like that.

Finally received a message last night:
Quote:
Hi!
Thanks for your message and for purchasing our product.

We checked your transaction record and could see that your order was done on June 15th which was June 16th in Korea time. As we are directly connected with manufacturers, your transaction record was handed over to them to ship it out. So your product was supposed to be shipped out on June 19th. However, because of QA test from manufacturers, the shipment of your product has been delayed for a few days. So it'll be shipped out tomorrow, June 21st. So sorry for the delay. We beg your deep understanding.
A tracking number will be updated tomorrow. Would you check it later then, please?

As compensation for delay, we are going to send $3 to you. Would you receive it?

With your reply, compensation will be sent to you. We'll wait for your reply. If you have any other question, please feel free to ask. We'll try our best to help you out as far as we can. Thanks again for your understanding and cooperation in advance.

Best Regards,


- dream-seller

Well it was delayed, but not by much. And what am I going to do with $3? ;p I replied to him stating don't worry about the three bucks, I'll be happy as long as I get a quality assured product this is shipped out on the 21st.

I loved the fact that he opened and checked my monitor before shipping because they had problems before. Your delay is probably for the same reason. All I can say, it's worth the wait biggrin.gif

The frame is like a mirror but the display isn't nearly as reflective as I expected considering it's a glossy screen with no AG coating.

ps. sorry for the mess on my desk

Mine got dropped in by the mailman earlier today. Shipping to Finland took 3 days + 2 for a customs delay. Couldn't be there to pick it up but the door was open and I just told him to leave it inside. Was kinda surprised it worked out like that. After a quick check I've managed to find not a single dead pixel or even a hint of backlight bleed. Very happy with the monitor, although the brightness is really high compared to my old monitor (which by chance is a 23" TN panel and is currently next to my achieva, being shat on in every aspect). Haven't managed to figure out how to change the brightness yet, and the buttons don't really seem to do much. Anybody figured out how to do it?

Ok, I'm already annoyed with the lack of adjustment allowed by the standard Shimian stand. Did anyone use or has at least a model number for this desk mount monitor arm ?

Thedamn, if you have the Shimian the top 2 buttons on the back on the monitor control the brightness. The front led will blink red for each step. If it's not blinking anymore, you've reached the min/max.

I use what looks to be the same thing. Bought it here.
