If I am not satisfied I will attempt to fill an eBay claim, this is a pretty absurd condition for a monitor to arrive in, and I'm not entirely convinced Fedex is to blame considering the box itself has no signs of damage, but there's a good chance shipping without bubble wrap to protect the box is just a really poor idea.

 

This is an important fact.  As the box has no sign of damage, especially those 2 corners, it is now more logical to deduce that the damage of the 2 housing corners are there before shipment.  I hope you have taken pictures of the then unopened package showing no sign of box damage as a record and proof if and when needed.  If not, I hope you have not thrown away the box yet.

 

Also, how about those internal foam wrapping, usually found around corners?  Are those foam 'damaged' or 'compressed/squeezed/disintegrated'?

The 2 pics below show the internal foam protection of 2 Chinese versions of the Shimian QH270 equivalent monitors.

internal styrofoam wrapping b.JPG

 

(Lastly, this is precisely why I said earlier the necessity of opening the package to do a quick physical inspection right in front of the delivery man before he left.)

 

I hope your problem will be handled satisfactorily either by ebay or the seller or Fedex.

hmm i was just wondering, how good is this monitor for watching movie and gaming? those who bought already what are your thoughts on it's performance on these 2 aspects?
post #513 of 4784
Hmm just fyi. My monitor was for sure opened by the seller prior to shipping as I found a flattened box for some Samsung 3d glasses which dcsamsungmall does sell. I didn't mind as long as it was nice. And yeah, the single minute piece of dust doesn't bother me or get in my way. Looks nice, but not a large fan of glass/glossy screen, but it was $400 so not complaining. Oh and the 5 buttons on the rear, 3 of them have clicks while the other two don't... So it seems like there's nothing behind those (same with my speaker grills). Discovered that the brightness down and up buttons require you to hold it... I was just button mashing it and it took forever to change brightness until I decided to hold it and it worked. Just fyi. Sry for any typos. Posting from my phone

Bf3 on high, no aa etc. I can get 60 with dips into 50s with my 570 at 870mhz depends on map. Diablo 3 beta... 60 fps, 50-60% utilization not at all resource intensive. Both at native res of this monitor. I don't notice any input lag but that may just be me. Diablo 3 looks soooooooo pretty. I don't watch movies, but it'll prob be a little blurry because of the higher res than blue ray. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the input! It will be nice for my 590 to finally get to stretch its legs after being stuck at 1920x1200 all of this time...i'll be shooting for 2650x1440 @ Ultra with 2xAA + VSYNC (4xAA is VRAM limited and also not needed at this res but I will try it anyways) for BF3, which, judging by some Google searches my card should be more than capable of handling...1 more day!!! thumb.gif

Has anyone from Canada ordered and received theirs from Dream-seller? If so did you get nailed for duty?I am going to pull the trigger on the Catleap (It'sjust so sexy looking!) I just don't want any surprises when it shows up at my door
post #517 of 4784
I ordered today. I ordered from dream seller, and I got the non tempered glass model.

Here's to hoping... I can't wait until i get it.

Asked Minarin Shop about the Crossover which I guessed would be around 7kg shipped because monitor is 6.5kg according to product specs.

Hi Matt~ Thanks for your interest in MinarinShop!

I imagine you are from the OverClock forums biggrin.gif I've been receiving some orders for these (sexy as hell, if I may say :x) monitors!

Yes, I can definitely help you order~

Fee is 15% of the total (~$40), and EMS shipping to US at ~7KG is ~90,000won (~$88 CAD/USD) + PPfees (unless you do personal payment). You can choose International Shipping if you'd like to cut down a bit.

Please place an order if you'd like to proceed ^_^

sounds about right.
when you put it this way though, those guys on ebay are barely making anything selling these monitors.
because they have to pay ebay fees too.
