I'm not sure how you can expect a reseller to make this guarantee. Unless you somehow make him open the package and check, your expectations would be unrealistic.

Right, it won't work with the Xbox. I don't know if the Shimian handles lower resolutions differently.

Just tried and 1280x720 works on my Shimian Achieva QH270-IPSB

^ this. You are taking a risk by doing this and hence the price reflects that.

I rather him open the LCD's and inspect first before shipping them out. I am not buying just one, I'm buying 3 and more later on if he complies. I also tried dcsamsungmall. Will see who cave in.

If you want to try that tactic then you're better off with smaller sellers. What you're doing now is no different than calling newegg and demanding them to test out whatever your ordered before they ship it out. And besides, knowing this is a hot product if he complies then he'll have to comply with everyone else's request in the near future, otherwise they would lose customers. Imagine the work the staff would have to do.

The problem is there is no other way for us to return defective product to the seller unless we pay the return shipping cost. The price reflects certain risk but what if it was DOA?

The seller offers square trade warranty. Someone said that it will not work. Can any one confirm this?
post #898 of 4784
Dream-Seller's price on the Catleap is now $397.90. Man, this is really getting difficult. Went down @2.09 in a few hours. Not that big of a discount, but I'm wondering if it will drop lower still. sneaky.gif

Can't confirm myself, but someone said on here they contacted SquareTrade and they said they'd back it. Others say because it's a product not intended for the US market, that it won't be covered.

EDIT2: Also saw that Dream-Seller is giving 14 day money back, but buyer has to pay to ship. I wonder how much that would be to Korea? Anyone? smile.gif

Still getting most of your money back. Hmm, I'm actually pretty sold on getting one now, not because of that though. I've got nothing to lose really. If I don't like it, I'll sell it and make most of my money back. If I like it, I sell my 3 Dells, and get my money back, plus some. Seems like win/win to me. Just gotta take some measurements when I get home. Make sure that 5.5" from desk to screen is good for me, as well as heght of the total monitor. (So it doesn't conflict with my HDTV on the wall)
