unfortunately no.. It's a matter of searching. I have some links I can share. http://www.overclock.net/t/1384767/official-the-korean-pls-monitor-club-qnix-x-star/3920

Hi Ya'll

Has anyone bought this from the UK recently? I would like to know the VAT charges for the UK, and the UK section of import charges in the OP seems out of date.

From here it seems like the import duty for Korean Monitors is 0%, and it just includes the standard VAT.

Can anybody from the UK confirm this?

Cheers

In need of quick help, trying to mount my qnix, I took apart the monitor and the clear stand. I am trying to mount it on my 3 plus 1 arm however the screws will not go all the way down in the vesa mount. I was wondering what size screws people were using. My asus fit perfectly, the qnix seems to have a smaller hole, and needs a much shorter screw.
thanks

I had 120hz set it CRU. Rebooted and windows no longer showed the option for 120. Is it supposed to stick? I have it as the second option in CRU. In the top set of resolutions. Is there a real guide to use this app? THe thread for it doesn't have much info. Seemed like after I used it I still need to have the custom res in NV control panel. Feel like I'm doing this wrong

The reason there is no duty on that calculation is the value is wrong these monitors are 200 quid which is roughly $300, with 190 quid in the calculator (the cheapest X-Star I can find) it comes to just under 260 quid all in.

Thanks for the reply. Very helpful. I put that much as other people have suggested to ask the seller to mark it as worth $200? Would you recommend this or not?
post #11737 of 25888
It is actually illegal to mark down cost (tax evasion) and many sellers won't do it anymore.

As it is illegal we cannot discuss it on this site.

Search "front porch" and skip all posts that simply say "search for front porch"

Anyone else occasionally get this test pattern of solid colors when first turning on the monitor? For an example, when I first power on my computer, i'll then power on the monitor and for a quick 1-2 sec, the monitor will flash a solid color of red, green, etc.. then go back to normal? Should I be concerned? I'm doing some searches on this phenomenon and a couple of people have actually had their monitors stuck in that mode…. Kind of worried now. frown.gif This monitor hasn't given me any other problems.

That is the monitor's test mode. The monitor going into test mode is normal but i am pretty sure it shouldn't be doing it every time you turn on the monitor. Also if it gets stuck in that mode you can always switch the monitor to another port and you should get a picture, if that doesn't work then boot up windows with another monitor and connect the Qnix AFTER getting to the desktop.
