After pages and pages of complaints, you sound a little immature.

I'm starting to doubt your "friend" of yours even exists.

Don't worry, everyone flames me for stating the truth.

Hi, I brought one of these a while back based on the feedback on this site.

Great monitor for what I paid, arrived quickly with no visible defects etc (from what I can see). I got the base version (no hardened glass), never had a problem with it.

Good to know. Ebay is going to loose money on this one.

I find this statement from the MonoPrice website to be a bit misleading:
Quote:
Additionally, we are so confident of the quality of these displays that we are guaranteeing these monitor will have less than 5 dead pixels. If you can count 5 dead pixels anywhere on the screen, we'll give you a new one. By comparison, the industry standard, even for industry leaders like Apple and LG, is 10 dead pixels or even more.

i think if anything it will drive the Shimian/Catleaps back down to the prices they were (and should be IMO). most have increased almost $100 over the last several months...

DHL did some digging and we found out that they HAD NOT filed a claim as they mentioned, they had filled out paperwork for a "trace" as they call it. SO, I email Green-sum and told them that DHL had NOT tried to call me and that they (green-sum) had not filed any claim paperwork.
Here is their reply to my 3 messages sent.

Hi,
Sorry for your inconvenience. We are going to claim it to DHL.
----
I will keep track of this and see what it going on with the seller...I don't want them dragging their feet to get out of any refund. At this rate I will just get my money back from them, (they offered a replacement or refund) . I drove up to Denver this past week and bought the Auria monitor from Microcenter instead of waiting thru their games. Worked out of the box with my Win 7 GTX460 machine and my Hackintosh with GT640.
Jim

Well...after a week or so of back and forth with Green-Sum, I had confirmation that DHL was coming to pick the thing back up. Filled out the paperwork and away she went. 2 days to Korea, and a reply right away from the seller. They checked the monitor and asked if I wanted another one or my $$ back. I said Money back. I had already purchased an Auria from Microcenter while dealing with this one. The next day I had an e-mail from Paypal saying the $$ was returned...confirmed with AMEX that it was on my card and that was it. No real big deal...they were easy to work with and responded quickly to my emails. I guess that if I did not know about the Auria or the one that is at Mono Price...i would have had them send me another. So....that is my story and that is it. Hope others will have as good of luck with Green Sum (at least with a working version).

Jim
