Hello everyone! Firstly, thanks for this great thread, I am learning a lot from it.

I mostly play flight simulators and I was thinking of upgrading my triple-monitor setup and was looking at 27" monitors at 2560x1440 resolutions and came upon the Korean monitor concept and stumbled onto here. I am currently reading my way down the thread but still at page 15.

I was thinking of buying 3 27" monitors but it seems like a setup for one monitor will not be good for another. Or each monitor will OC to different levels. Or have different alignment issues. I wonder if anyone here has bought 3 monitors for a three-screen setup (I know at least a couple members have) and what issues there are trying to make 3 screens work nice with each other?

Also, you guys seem to be really hardcore with your monitors; I've never had to color-adjust mine. Can I ask why you would OC a monitor from 60Hz to 120Hz?

Has anyone had to send back their monitor and how did they do it? I see some that guarantee zero bad pixels and also say they pay for return postage (eBay sellers).

Lastly, are there any methods or tricks or instructions to give to sellers so that I don't get ripped off in customs/taxes? I live in the UK.... if that fact isn't obvious yet!

Welcome to OCN I hope you enjoy your stay biggrin.gif

I won't answer all your questions but I can tell you this, if I were you I wouldn't worry too much about alignment issues (it would be too small to notice in my opinion). Overclocking the monitor gives you the benefit that it refreshes faster. This is especially important in games where it makes it feel more responsive. I'm a hardcore fps gamer and I can tell you I don't want to go back to 60 Hz after overclocking my monitor. Also, whether you can hit 120 Hz or not does not seem guaranteed, but I can tell you even if you hit 96 Hz which you should it would already be worth it. As for whether it is worth it to get 3 monitors for eyefinity I can't tell you. You will probably need a very good graphics card for it to run smoothly. Regarding to customs I don't think anyone has found a way to completely circumvent it since the couriers need actual values to be declared for insurance and customs, and also I can't speak for UK customs. I bought from accessorieswhole and it was really well packaged and Fedex is a good courier company so I did not have any issues. I just have a little backlight bleed on the top of my screen, the panel sits ever so slightly misaligned with the bezel and I have one stuck red pixel. All of which I never notice. I just notice a flipping awesome screen which looks and performs fantastic for the price I paid.

I mean his the driver I know, but surely he would have to know if there were ANY customs charges as he would be the one needing to declare it to me?
I guess there wasn't any custom charges then?

I was in two minds as I saw the monitor. Problem is if I opened it, didn't like it, have to return it - the problems of sending an open package + arranging delivery would cost me probably over $50 as it is.
So, I think I made the right decision. At least the seller doesn't have to "restock it" - it's unopened.

The seller did tell me the manufacturer did "guarantee it" to work with Xbox.
Sure, but maybe not at 1080P. And that's a deal breaker for me.

I played at 720p and 1080i for a long long period of time. I utterly hated it - until I got my LG monitor. Made a world of difference to me.

Dubbed myself and a few other Guys from the UK that have bought these monitors have got there custom charges a week later after receiving the monitor!....Mine came in the form of a letter from FED-EX for only £30 as i asked accessorieswhole to mark it down at $200 instead of £200!...In the letter FED-EX claimed they had to pay this to customs for them to release it "which is what happens" so they could deliver it to me...i just thought i would give you the heads up on that thumb.gif

Edit: Also the driver would not know about any custom charges he is just tasked to Deliver it wink.gif....I remember having wait hours in my truck for customs to release 30ton containers at Southampton docks and this was after they had been paid...you can not pick it up until they have been paid and they give the loader clearance to drop the box on the back of your truck..this can take hours...sometimes days!

fair enough - although in france when I received something from China, they delivered it and asked for the payment upon delivery. Simple as that.
I'll definitely not be paying anything lol.

I can't for the life of me get a frameskip test to show 120hz anymore. I did a clean install of windows to try and fix my GPU issues (was getting only black screens when launching games) and it worked, but now frameskip just shows 60 instead of 120. Is something just wrong with the frameskip site now? Games and AMD Catalyst both show me at 120 and I've properly patched my drivers and setup CRU.

Edit: Nevermind, fixed it. Stupidly forgot that I had basic theme enabled. I was wondering why the colors were a bit odd.

I just got my QNIX QX2710 Evolution II and am blown away. What a deal. And to think I was almost too afraid to buy one. Overclocked to 96Hz with no problems.

FYI, I bought mine from eBay. Seller was storewithstory if anyone is interested. It took 2 days to get to California from Korea, friggin incredible.
