Sorry, I was referring to the black light bleed in my post. I checked the "Tape mode to fix back light bleed" section, but he doesn't show where to put the tape. I'm not sure what he means by "LED array". Can you clarify that part for me?

Ok guys i am stuck between buying a Asus PB278Q or a QNIX.I have TWO 7950 boost cards so i can run my games at over 100fps.So is it worth the risk to buy a QNIX perfect pixel monitor from hulustar and get the Square trade 3 year warranty?Or should i just get the ASUS?My problem is i only have 1 working arm so taking apart the monitor to fix it is no an option..I would rather pay more to not have to deal with any issues..Here is the monitor i was looking at.

Total with the 3 year warranty is $438..What should i do?

For games, I'd say go for it smile.gif

The image will be similar, thanks to the QNIX also using a Samsung PLS display, but you'll end up with a refresh rate that is higher and more suited to gaming (~120Hz with nvidia cards and ~100Hz with AMD cards, averaging comments made in this thread), as well as lower input lag as it doesn't have scalars or any of the dsp etc that the ASUS does.

Total with the 3 year warranty is $438..What should i do?

Well the normal X-Star and QNIX from hulustar are on special with only a 0-2 pixel defect. Thats dam close to pixel perfect for alot less. Plus since its cheaper the 3 yr square-trade warranty is only 49.99.
This makes the total for a qnix $367.

However I would just get the Asus because you never know what condition these monitors will arrive in. Since you aren't able to do things like fix back-light bleed or reconnect the internals unfortunately. Like you said, pay more to deal with less issues and the Asus will have no issues.

Okay first things first, I got the monitor after 11 days of paying the seller, XXXXXXX.
and wasn't too pleased about the shipping time and packaging as no protection on the outside and not as advertised, not expedited intl shipping, economy intl shipping is what I got.

I was excited and had to pay $55 customs, asked the seller to mark lower he demanded he can't on Fedex, which was cheaper to send,on the customs invoice but could do so in ems and demanded $26 more. I though it wouldn't matter and went with full amount. and got hit with a larger customs.

I noticed the backlight bleed immediately when booting up and on the first inspection I didn't notice any dead or stuck pixels and I ran the pixel fixing test just for the kinks for about 5 mins on the online flash based website. http://www.flexcode.org/lcd2.html

And later after closer inspection I found 4 dead pixels, 1 each on right bottom and top, 2 more in the middle upper part of the screen and 1 minor sub pixel is bad and shows sometimes on white I repeat 1 sub pixel. so in all 5 pixels are bad or non performing. I was okay with that and since Hulustar and some other sellers agreed to replace I asked the seller, he said I can't help.
I showed him picturres in dropbox he said he can't open the links, pasted in imageshack still said he can't open the links asked for the youtube links,
asked me I should have bought pixel perfect.
meanwhile my Gfx card went down and with it the dispaly was useless, I somehow arranged the video links and from here he kept dodging the issue by asking me to buy a 2100 $ LG instead and asked me to send it back for a full refund, also offered me a 3% discount coupon for next purchase,( I wasn't interested as the first product itself is not up to the mark and why purchase more) I asked him to replace instead to which he said it would cost him and myself(he did mention the returns to be borne by buyer) more money.

I reasoned, I threatened to escalate and finally after all the time I asked for atleast a partial refund of the half of the customs charges incurred which I think was reasonable and he said he sold the item during a sale and the margin or profit was only $10.

I was frustrated and wanted to end it all and think I was fated to get a bad customer service and product and obliged for the $10 refund and he agreed and I gave him time from 16th or was it 14th of May and I got a prompt that If I recieved no refund in 3 days ie., till 19th to escalate the case.
I waited till 20th no response or a refund in my paypal. and I finally escalated the case.

I got a message a little while back from ebay customer resolution of a full refund and another from seller saying he tried several times to click on partial refund and recieved errors, and finally he issued a full refund by mistake( I highly doubt).

then I got a call from the seller in south korea, explaining the mishap I said for all the trouble I if I have to give him the payment back I get atleast $20 and he sent an invoice and then I realised that Initially I used a 10% discount coupon from ebay, and so a higher invoice was send from the seller. now I cancelled and emailed the seller and the seller says to either return the product or issue another payment through the paypal.

listed price=289.90$(free shipping), paid after 10% discount = 260.91$, fresh invoice after the full refund for item as non described from the Ebay customer resolution is full inclusive of shipping.
invoice after negotiation over phone 269.90$(20 instead of 10$). This was before I checked my emails and stuff.
Now the seller is also calling me every 2 mins and no response from the seller over the phone simply calls.
received around 30 calls.

Currently the case has been closed by Ebay resolution center.
Please help me what Do to and what is the ethical and moral thing to do here?

Yes is it alright to reveal the name of the seller. I have currently switched off my phone as I can't stand the blank calls, no response even though I hold it to my ear for several minutes only typing sounds and some vague Korean talk in the background which I can't make out, it was a lady who very politley spoke to me in the first instance. and I almost was about to give the money when she waited till i got on the PC and logged onto paypal, and she sent me an invoice of 269.90 initially.
Okay since everything is out I believe it is only prudent to name the seller but is naming and shaming a good thing??

let me know your ideas as I'm out of any at the moment
post #1550 of 25922
Oh yes since the time I have cancelled the first invoice and informed the seller the reason for doing it so, I have received a fresh invoice of 267.90$. talk about persistence....... where was all this when I had a problem not 1 phone call and atleast 24 hours before each time I contact the seller, each time making a fresh excuse
