Thanks, I started doing that yesterday based on your recommendation. Any idea why he would reply to your messages but not mine? I basically said "you didn't send me an adapter; please send me an adapter".

I don't doubt it, but considering that I'm going with a CrossOver instead of a Dell for cost reasons, it doesn't make much sense to pay $200 extra to get the same monitor from AW! (That's the cheapest they sell pixel-perfect-pivot.)

#2. Where are you located (just out of curiosity). My box was in good shape INSIDE, but the outside and near bottom is was very damp (like, wet and soggy, almost as if someone dropped it in foot-high water, then took it back out to try lol, and I think this has something to do with the yellowish tinge btw!). I think it could be something to do with the plane and altitude, making the boxes very soggy/soft, then it sits in DHL's warehouse which COULD also be humid inside, who knows. Someone should really inform them that our boxes are coming back wet though, and I think the monitors inside are being affected as well. The paint on the metal on top, specifically (peeling away).
#4. Buyer Protection is 45 days since purchase, keep that in mind. As far as ebay return policies, those are seller-dependent.
#5. Tilt in which direction? To face up? If you mean rotate, make sure you tilt to face up before spinning it into portrait mode.
#6. I would also like to know the shipping charges back to SK, but anyway, I doubt they will take your return, they might just send you a new stand.
#2. Cupertino, CA, United States. My box arrived dry inside and out, no trace of water that I noticed.
#5. When I rotate it into portrait orientation (after tilting it to face up, like you said), it doesn't fully reach portrait. Whereas it's flat and level in landscape, it stops rotating just before reaching 90° when I rotate it into portrait; and it rotates a little bit past
the end of landscape. Apparently a bit inside is bent or something.
#6. Has anyone had a stand shipped to them separately? Is that likely? I would love that.
