Warning For people buying from UK

Just bought second monitor from dream seller paid same price as last one 211pound monitor came perfect like last one,
but 2 days later received invoice from fed ex charged me 88.13 so i rang them up to complain they tell me there clamping down on electric goods from korea and they are checking boxs and are making sure correct taxs are paid.etc
they also told me the fed ex handling charge is going to go up. lol
my last monitor i paid around 40 pound charges
the uk is a total rip off don't think i am going to buy another one, even if seller says the value is under 135 they are checking somehow to see what u paid.

Nvm I read this wrong.

Sorry about the taxes but at least you have a functional government.

Ok, I got some graphics cards which don't support Dual-Link DVI. I'd really want to buy a Korean panel because of two simple reasons.
Cheap.
Overclockable.

Monitors which support the connection my card has ( DP ) don't have the latter. The former is often no longer true as well.

Now, instead of selling my cards ( I really don't want to sell them ) I've decided to pick up an active adapter.
I can get one for €60 including shipping.

Can someone confirm active adapters also support +60 Hz?

I just received my monitor.
The frame was not properly attached. there's a gap between frame and monitor. (my finger almost fits in)

should i return it? or fix it myself? (but i'll lose warranty then, or?)

1 dead pixel but it doesn't bother me that much
no blb (thank god)

i will provide screenshots and more info later

Just sold my original Yamakasi which was GORGEOUS and perfect but would only overclock to 65hz. Just ordered a Qnix from bigclothcraft. Hoping to get at least 96hz!

Anywho, what's up with the glossy Qnix's being so expensive? I couldn't even find a real good deal in USD (USA)

Is anyone running one of those monitors @120hz all day? Just wondering if anyone ran into issues using them 24/7

now i know what i was missing my whole life. 120Hz is awesome!!!!

there definitely is a difference. tested with skyrim.

when it says valid but stutters sometimes, it's still alright ,or? (stutter during the frame test thingy)

edit: do i actually get charged for additional fees after receipt or before? since i haven't paid any fees yet besides the monitor redface.gif

I'm not too sure about the active adapters... I may suggest you to buy a cheap GPU to have it worked and buy a decent GPU later for smooth gaming... Or buy a decent GPU straight ahead because as far as i know it will have a hard time to drive a 1440p monitor to play a smooth game with at high or very high settings.

Try changing the total pixels to 2652 and total lines to 1445. Does it stutter now? With regards to fees, US residents does not get charged VAT or any type of fees.
