Accessorieswhole checks that there is no more than 2 dead/stuck pixels before shipping.

Sounds like exactly what I am looking for!
I'll check them out when I get off work. (Ebay blocked...)
I just want to have the smallest possible chance of just getting DOA or a screen of dead pixels.
I'm pretty ok with just a couple I think. I still have to gamble with the damn handling here though. I've gotten amazon boxes with the entire bottom ripped off. (Stuff inside made it somehow though)

Yo-

If you go with 'accessorieswhole' (like I did) - not only do they inspect the unit - but you also get an "A1' panel rather than a "A1-" panel that others are selling.

For an additional $54 - you can get a really good Square Trade 3 year warranty.

Accessorieswhole uses FedEx exclusively and they are pretty gentle with shipments (as opposed to DHL and USPS)

All these factors should put your fears at rest.

(btw - I really love my CrossOver 27Q monitor!!)

Yo Neo Mike-

I wasn't there when they checked mine - but mine has zero dead and zero stuck pixels - the faint light bleed that I have apparently comes from the on/off switch light in the bottom right hand corner-eh.

Thanks for the reply.
Sounds like accessorieswhole is a good choice then.

I think I have it narrowed to him or possibly bigclothcraft for a yamakasi.

I was originally waiting for one of the special order 2B yamakasi's, but the price is a bit steeper than I like and the guarantees for issues seems a little harder to deal with.
Plus I can switch to my 120hz monitor for FPS if the delay/smoothness is bothering me.

Will do a little more research when I'm off and probably pull the trigger in the next couple days.

How will the GTX 260 Core 216 do with this resolution for normal desktop use? (Does have Dual Link DVI)
And for gaming? Will BF3 run at 30-40 fps with low settings, no AA, no AF?
All on the full resolution of course.

I am looking to purchase a CrossOver pretty soon from Accessorieswhole on Ebay (They seem to be the most reliable seller after doing some research). Some questions:

1) Is there a 100% working pixel guarantee?
2) Did you ask for the American adapter or was it provided automatically? (some people are saying that Accessorieswhole is providing the correct adapter, which runs much cooler, which is another reason for me to pick this seller on Ebay)
3) Is it only dual link DVI port? Can I use just one HDMI cable or just one Displayport cable to run this monitor? (Is there a version that has these inputs)?
4) How are people adjusting the monitor for color correction without spending another $200 on those colorimeters?
5) How much was the import tax, fees? How much did you pay in total?

Thank you!

I just registered to be able to vote on the poll above. Also to tell you all how awesome this monitor is!

Bought the monitor from dcsamsungmall. A lot of users have positive experience and fast shipping time through this seller, so I bought from him instead of the others. I live in Phoenix, AZ, but it was at my front door 2 business days after I ordered it. Pretty amazing considering the last item I bought from the east nearly took 2 weeks.

I checked out the monitor right away and my gosh, this thing is awesome (by comparison, I have an older 19" VA1912wb Viewsonic monitor). The colors are rich & bright and the texts are so sharp compared to my old dinosaur. Also because of the 2560x1440 resolution, I am able to have 2 web browsers next to each other at full view. I no longer have to scroll left & right like I did with my old monitor.

That's my experience so far. Awesome monitor for a great price. I may have to buy another.

1) Is there a 100% working pixel guarantee?
Not from AccessoriesWhole. They guarantee no more than 2 dead/stuck pixels. Someone else may off pixel perfect, but I am not sure.
2) Did you ask for the American adapter or was it provided automatically? (some people are saying that Accessorieswhole is providing the correct adapter, which runs much cooler, which is another reason for me to pick this seller on Ebay)
I asked for it, but the listing says you can either request one, or he will choose the correct one depending on the shipping location.
3) Is it only dual link DVI port? Can I use just one HDMI cable or just one Displayport cable to run this monitor? (Is there a version that has these inputs)?
Only Dual link DVI on the 27Q. The other models (27M and 2720MDP I think) have other input types.
4) How are people adjusting the monitor for color correction without spending another $200 on those colorimeters?
This can be done just using your eyes, but it would be hard. You can obtains a Spyder 4 colorimeter for fairly cheap. Be sure to get a pro or elite version if you need advanced options or multiple monitor calibration.
5) How much was the import tax, fees? How much did you pay in total?
No import fees for me to California. Item came from AccessoriesWhole in one day; it was amazing.

I highly recommend AccessoriesWhole, as they offer a great service: prompt response, great shipping, checking monitor for DOA (and over 2 dead pixels), and a decent price.
