Okay, so I'm still very hesitant to pull the trigger on these Korean ones because it's a hit-or-miss - I've read so many issues on this thread either with the monitor itself or with the delivery....
But let's say I give it a chance.
Now I'm hesitating between a non-pixel perfect from AW or a Pixel Perfect from BCC.
AW don't have Pixel Perfect ones at the moment, I emailed them to know if there will be any soon, here's the response:
Thank you for your interest on Accessorieswhole.
We are also trying our best to get pixel perfect monitors but have not have it in stock.
So I must confess I'm rather scared... If they do not have any pixel perfect in stock, does it mean that they know that the ones they have in stock have dead pixels?
I contacted BigClothCraft To know about the rev., as I've been advised to demand a rev.3 so I asked for a rev.3. Here's their response:
Im sorry for the late reply.
What do you mean by 'Rev.1, 2, or 3'?
I will hear from you.
Okay so they don't know
... What am I supposd to respond?
I also contacted BigClothCraft again to know about their Pixel Perfect policy, as they claim to have Pixel Perfect units at the moment, and I've been told that only AccessoriesWhole REALLY check their Pixel Perfect units before shipping.. Here's the response:
Perfect pixel version allows 1 black dot dead pixel.
Manufacturer also verify dead but
we also do our personal inspection for the monitor.
We have 1 year of seller warranty for faulty monitor.
Dead pixel matter also can be the reason of returning.
OK so what should I do with each seller and would you guys advice me to purchase a Pixel Perfect unit from BCC or a simple unit from AW? They're roughly the same price...
I often read that BCC is not very responsive once the monitor is ordered, they take a week or two to send it, give fake tracking numbers, send several e-mails always saying that the monitor will be shipped "tomorrow", etc. but they're still the second recommended seller with AW.
