They will replace monitors with ANY amount of defect pixels.

Hi Chris,
Thank you for your inquiry.
We ship to the UK, shipping costs are calculated at checkout. For customs fees we recommend you use www.dutycalculator.com – also note that the country of origin is South Korea (manufacturer). As far as we can tell there are no custom/import duty, however you will still need to pay VAT.

Feel free to let us know if you have any additional questions.
Thank you,


EDIT:
So yeah they post out to the UK - but they're mistaken in thinking there are no customs charges. There are customs charges and they are god damn hefty, especially at a £200 price tag, You're looking at around £40-50 import.


EDIT2:
I was lying, it's more:

Or IPSledmonitors for £277.33 total

Both not including custom (i think ebay may include VAT too)

Which to go for?

Just plugged it so far 0 dead pixel 0 BLB and perfectly stable at 96hz. 120 is not stable but i just quickly gave it a shot quickly setting it from the Nvidia CP.

Will do some tests play around with it and update with some pics shortly.

Till now it seems perfect and im super happy about it biggrin.gif

I already decided not to keep the True10. It's sitting in the corner. Like I said, it's a FANTASTIC image but I want 120hz with no frame skipping. So as of right now, it's between the Qnix Glossy and Overlord Tempest. biggrin.gif


I dont know much about the Overlord Tempest except that its expensive than the Korean ones. I also noticed that they are sold out. It it the only place where we can buy it?

TA global any day of the week.
As I said, you'll HAVE to pay customs. There are very FEW of us from the UK here, but those that are, will know about VAT and imports.
You'll HAVE to pay it regardless, but the AMOUNT you have to pay will vary hugely.

I HIGHLY suggest you contact the ebay sellers and try and see:
1. If they'll send you a pixel perfect one
2. If they'll send as gift
3. If they even respond to your queries

Replies from sellers I got:
Pixel perfect:
  • ta-korea.global
  • excellentcastle
  • Red-Cap



Normal:
  • hulustar
  • bigclothcraft
  • gn_wholesale
  • green-sum

The NORMAL sellers told me they could pick out a perfect pixel one and would try and get me the "best monitor" but there was no guarantee.


EDIT:
Went through ALL my messages with all sellers - and in all honesty Red-Cap comes out on top, in terms of customer service BY FAR.
None of the others actually bothered to try and send or offer a perfect pixel model - even when I requested it, on their own listings that were "perfect pixel"
They all said that they could mark it down and send as a gift though.

Red-cap on the other hand, brilliant customer service.
I'll know how he/she/they really deal with customers now, as I've scheduled a return with them. I'll see what they say and/or do.
For the same Price I paid for the True10, I'll just gladly accept a straight swap for a "ultimate pixel" QNIX.

Would anybody care to explain why 96hz is the number of choice beyond just being a rate that's attainable by most monitors. For example why not 100hz?

24FPS movies play better with a refresh rate that is a multiple of 24 thus removing the pulldown stutter effect natively. if you have 100hz video playback will have to compensate which is not always perfect leaving stutter. Having 96hz will give butter smooth playback and uses less hardware to play higher quality(bluerays) videos even better. See the madvr thread regarding "pull down" for more information.

EDIT: I think this is in the OP and if it is not it should be.
