Thanks a lot anyway for your answers wink.gifthumb.gif

Last question, I've read some people recommending to change the power brick as soon as possible, it wasn't specified neither why nor if the problem was that the bundle power brick could break the screen or simply break itself. Do you know anything about this?

My power brick hasn't even gotten warm and has been working just fine. I did however replace the Korean end of the cable with an American one (it's the sort of cable that plugs into the back of a PSU or a guitar amp, or some printers even, so you may have one lying around)

My monitor (from bigclothcraft) did come with an adapter, but I haven't tried it at all.

Yesterday I also ordered 30q5 from eBay seller called "accessorieswhole".
What's wrong with Korean cable?
Does your monitor have some bad pixels?

There is nothing wrong with the cable--I just replaced the non-converter end of it with one that natively fits a US wall socket (see picture)



I have one dead pixel but I never notice it. The pixels on this thing are tiny.

Hi all
Thats coincidental I ordered from the same supplier on the same day I think. Did you order a new one and where are you located ?
BTW this forum doesn't work that good with the Chrome webbrowser.
post #106 of 357
Yes, I ordered a new one. I think that this seller doesn't sell used. I live in Russia. Today I got a track number. Soon it will be trackable.
Don't know how much time it will take monitor to come here. DHL doesn't work here, so EMS is the only option.
Where do you live?

I live in the Netherlands, mine is shipping through Fedex. Must be maybe already in the airplane by now, since last time I looked it was in China I believe. Unfortunately I didn't order a new one, I accidently overlooked it. Little stupid afterwards since a new one is only a little more, but I don't know about shipping costs. And in my country you must also consider the import tax, it can differ sometime how they calculate it. I read that on another forum, but it hadn't had new posts for some while now. I hope I also get hopefully the same waranty or a little bit less, I only could find that he wants to keep every customer 100% satisfied. This is my first buy through ebay.

I just got delivery of a Q5 Pro from lightnspace (didn't look at the 27Q comments to see others had a negative impression of lightnspace aka astrobile).

No dead pixels and beats the colors on my old Hanns G 1920x1200 27" monitor. In portrait, it looks to be a fine coder's monitor for old eyes set up next to the Hanns G in landscape (the stand works well for a cheapie).

lightnspace seems a little spotty ; they show a FEDEX image in their Ebay icon for the posting but ship via international post; mine arrived on the 7th day; and their confirmation email mistakenly said it was shipped regular 10 to 20 day which got me nervous, but an inquiry got a reply that it had been shipped 'expedited'. The astrobile listing, at least, mentions that it is not FEDEX.

So far I'm happy with the monitor I got, though that Fedex icon really ought not to be there, and I can't imagine I could ever try to stake a claim under their authorized vendor warranty (or from any of the ebay vendors who don't have a USA based service organization). The little control buttons are cheesy and look like they could easily break. The casing, I really like ... reminds me of good custom sheet metal construction from the early days, these are not mass produced monitors.

On kill-a-watt, I see 67 watts at lowest brightness setting (about 15 more watts to get something that doesn't look dingy), and 144 on highest, with 2 watts on sleep mode and 1 watt switched off. I'm curious if there are more efficient bricks available; a bit of an obcession for me.

My monitor itself puts out all the heat and light (energy) whereas my brick appears and feels dead as a nail. I think the monitors just a hungry beast thumb.gif

It's risky to make a first try on eBay with such high price.
And it's a surprise for me that he sells used monitors. Could you post a link to the lot you bought?
I reviewed my lot again and monitor is definitely new.
Today it was handed over to Air carrier, INCHEON.
