Alright, I managed to catch the Fedex guy just as he was leaving my street so I got my monitor today.
Monitor - Achieva Shimian IPSB (Tempered Glass)
Seller - dcsamsungmall
Shipping used - Fedex International Economy
DUTY - $21 (Delivered to Canada)
NO BUBBLEWRAP SURROUNDING BOX.
The monitor arrived with cracks on both the left and right on the top corners of the housing. The panel itself is fine. There is also remnants of what appears to be styrofoam stuck between the glass and housing.
Despite this, the monitor has arrived FUNCTIONAL. I am typing from it as we speak. I'll have pictures posted in a few.
There IS dust behind the panel, and one particular section is very aggravating.
Pictures below. I apologise for them being AWFUL, as they were taken with a Nexus One, but it'll give you the general idea.Picture 1Picture 2Picture 3Picture 4Picture 5Picture 6Picture 7Picture 8Picture 9Picture 10Picture 11Picture 12Edited by Vittra - 2/29/12 at 3:47pm
