AHHHH!
Getting warranty sorted for this is so damn frustrating!
Been trying to get one sorted since November and all Green-Sum is saying is our policy does not do this do that, we cant do this that.
Just basically spent £220 on a monitor that was amazing while it worked for the whole 4 months I had it!

Where else could I try and get this monitor fixed?

Problem is
When I power on the monitor, the backlight would turn on but not display any pictures, also the power LED dims instead of staying bright blue.

EDIT: damn these posts came out of nowhere. Wasn't a double post after all frown.gif

EDIT2: My monitor cost total was €236 - $322 - £195 - NOK 1986

EDIT3: Keep in mind these prices are aprox, depending on the exchange rate and so on.
I bought from StorewithStory on Ebay for $299 pluss shipping. $20 and then €17 VAT.

EDIT: Thought I'd mention now that I've checked for BLB and dead pixels. There are no dead pixels and there is a very slight BLB at the bottom right which I only notice when looking at in pitch dark and black background. I will probably never notice it under any other circumstances so I'm so damn happy right now tongue.gif StorewithStory on Ebay get's my thumbs up.

Awesome, once my card is here I'm pulling the trigger.

Hmm, it's 310 now, still cheap. It says "approx 228.12", does the actual price deviate a lot from it?

My Qnix from storewithstory just arrived.
There is one pixel i first considered dead but after cyling through different colors and using my magnifier it appeared to be a dead green subpixel.

Dead pixel policy is "up to 1pcs x black dot pixel; not any bright pixel". Is a dead subpixel threaded as black dot pixel?

And what would you consider worse: dead pixel (allways black) or dead green subpixel (thus showing wrong colors e.g. magenta on white backgrounds)

Backlight bleed is quite heavy. The panel seems only be strongly fixed on the upper left corner (the one without bleeding) while at all other corners the panel can easily pushed back several millimeters. Will do some screenshots now.

For those that were interested about a vesa stand who reside in the uk, this 1 is great for the qnix, you just need 2 or 3 thin washers to put behind each screw that comes with it as the screws are too long, or you could saw the 4 screws down to the correct size although i recommend purchasing some cheap washers of ebay and bobs your uncle biggrin.gif please look at picture to see what i mean

Also the monitor weighs no way near the maximum load of the vesa stand so its very safe and looks pretty good

A green pixel would be considered as a "stuck pixel" which is not covered under any scam.....i mean perfect pixel policy.
post #12239 of 25887
the green subpixel is not stuck (allways on) but defective (allways off). A white background normally would be red+green+blue full on. But with green not working it is red+blue full on = magenta




Here are the screenshots of backlight bleeding and the panel corners.

The top left one which is good fixed:



The right corners with backlight bleeding and extensive backlight bleeding with minor pressure:

Try explaining that to your seller and good luck. Also just do the BLB fix to get rid of the panel pressure, or better yet just get rid of the bezel.
