I don't think there's anything wrong with ShiMian stands, personally. Not the most glamorous variety, but it looks fine in person.

EDIT: If anyone local around socal doesn't like their shimian and wants to sell their shimian I might be a buyer a few dead pixels is ok I guess, just send me a pm and pics thumb.gif

As for quality.....

I have been doing that since yesterday, the panel in this one is flawless.

Scary what level on monitor we can get for $300. All those folks using 1080 TNs....

Yes, it can tilt back and forth, just like on the advertising photos. Some people think it can't, because the tilting mechanism is very tight, so some strategically careful pushing is necessary to start the twist (that's what she said) Easier if the monitor is flat on some surface, not yet standing on your desk. I hold my monitors by the bottom of the screen, near the stand, and tilt there, slowly.

I'm from the UK and worrying about custom charges, but I can counter that by asking the seller to value it less. I may even get lucky enough to avoid it altogether.

However, if I pick up a pixel perfect monitor, what if I get a dead pixel or two or worse still, very bad back light bleed?

What would be the course of action for a refund? Extra expenses, etc?

Look carefully through every seller's return policy and policy for refunds or replacements in case something is wrong. Some sellers don't list anything at all, which I consider suspicious, and some go as far as covering return shipping upfront. Unfortunately, import taxes are something that you have to cover yourself - don't think you will get reimbursed for those in case of a return/exchange. Contact a seller you are interested in purchasing from in advance and ask questions before purchasing. If their answers make you feel uneasy, you should probably go with someone else.

I'm also from the UK and in my experience trying to falsely declare the value of goods is hit and miss. HMRC aren't daft and I know of lots of people that have under-declared the value of their monitors only for HMRC to disagree and hit them with increased custom charges.

Yeah, i'm really skeptical. Something is telling me now to get a 120hz or two 1080p monitors. But I'd just love a 2560x1440 monitor redface.gif

What should I ask for them to value it as? And if so, what customs charge would that be in GBP?

I am from the USA, so I am not sure how your system works, but the "value" of the display is only $289 USD, so I am not sure how hard you get hit on that. Some sellers have been known to declare ~$150 values when shipping, just to help with customs.

In truth, even if customers was another ~20% on the purchase of the display, I say it is worth it. 1440P is so nice, and games just look amazing at it! The other great thing is I can have two full web pages open next to each other, or a handful of other applications I use all laid out nicely in a grid.

What are you talking about. The value of these monitors is 900-1100 dollars. Have you seen how much the same exact panel goes for in a dell or apple housing? I'd knock off 100 bucks or so because these are A- and there's a chance of stuck pixels but that still makes these panels worth quite a bit more than we're buying them for.
