Better 27" IPS from Korea? PCBANK 3VIEW PB2700 - Page 38

Can you elaborate on how the actual monitor performs? are you happy now that it was fixed? hows the picture quality?

Yes, I can elaborate: Buy it, it's worth every penny and more.

Anyone from the UK got stung by this or is it good to go with customs etc etc..?
post #374 of 624
Most people get stung it seems, at least by something. Only seen one case where someone got it without paying. Customs here often hold it and claim missing invoice as well

EDIT: Here's a quote from the front of the Catleap club (obviously applies here as well):

U.K.: From whybother
Marked at £30 the customs fee will simply be VAT or £6. The shipping company also charges a fee tho.
http://www.dutycalculator.com/new-import-duty-and-tax-calculation/
Monitors imported to the UK:
Value <£135 = 20%
Value >£135 = 14% (Duty) + 20% of Value + Duty
Plus shipping company fee.
http://www.dutycalculator.com/help_center/will-there-be-any-extra-charges-from-the-shipping-provider/
If the monitor was marked with a value of £250 and shipped via Royal Mail, your total customs fee would be £100. Gotta love this country...
If marked as a gift and less than £36 there should be no customs charge tho.

can someone post pictures of the stand on the super , is actually the much better then the normal one ?

also for those who ordered of bigclothcraft how well does he pack the monitors,
think someone in customs does not like me as my stuff always looks like its been in war.
so would be a bit worried about that.

The monitors are not packed well at all. He simply puts the monitor box in brown packaging, slaps a shipping label on it and ships it.

When I received my PB2700 from him the box already had a hole in it. Luckily the hole was on the side of the box facing the back of the monitor so the panel itself was still in mint condition.

weird cause other people who use different sellers say there getting big bubble wrap all over the outside of the boxes, hmm maybe i could ask him to wrap it better.
or might look at someone else.

has anyone got a super from another seller that they consider to be well packed ?

Red-cap has from what I have seen the best packaging for shipping. His s*** is sealed tight. lol as for bigclothcraft I hope my monitor arrives without any damage. I went with him since he offers the perfect pixel at a reasonable price . My payment cleared Tuesday he has yet to ship it but I am guessing by tomorrow it will be on its way. He's marking it 80 gift ..

Bigclothcraft never responded to my offer so I have just ordered from samsung_korea. Excited! Fingers crossed I don't get stung from customs and my monitor is a gooden. I ordered the Perfect Pixel Super for $360.

Ordered one from Bigclothcraft last night. Had the standard email question convo earlier on. Looking forward to getting it, hopefully it's all gravy.


Those that have got one, what's the deal with changing the stand? Would this one be fine - http://www.allcam.biz/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=29&products_id=1106
