Then it stayed in the UPS as a damaged goods item and then it shipped back to Korea. Once they receive it I am hoping they will quickly refund. The whole process of purchase and return has taken a month.

Have you raised a dispute in eBay/Paypal? I would've done so by the 14th day, or maybe 2 days after they said they would take it back. As soon as the courier takes it from my doorstep, I'd expect a refund ASAP.

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.

Thanks for the welcome! I got my son a Samsung Syncmaster 24" monitor a few years back and I did notice a bright pink dot, about the size of the "dot" of the "i" and it is noticeable if you look at it but when looking at the screen as a whole, you'd barely notice it. However, how do you COUNT the pixels? Surely the dot on the i is more than 1 pixel?

I am using a 60Hz iiyama 24" monitor and my favorite flight sim sits around 30-38fps when I am flying and using all my monitors. I would expect upgrading to 27" 2560x1440 monitors would lower the fps considering my GPU (HD 7970 3GB) will have to push more pixels. So why overclock the monitor if the GPU can't push 60fps in the first place? Or 90fps for that matter?

As for customs, the less it costs the better obviously, but I've not dealt with these sellers or anyone from Korea so any tips?

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!

£30 seems okay for one monitor, but why declare $200 instead of £200? Why not declare $100? Or even $50 and gift as I've read from earlier pages?


Thanks for the help guys! I'm looking forward to buying my monitors but I'm a bit picky so would probably pay extra for the option to RETURN a monitor with a stuck pixel or two. I don't want to ignore something if I can pay for it not to be there. Has anyone returned their monitor to the seller for not being pixel perfect? I'd rather buy from a no-hassle seller.

Remember, think of it as a seller. Why would you refund your buyer when you haven't inspected the sold item.
For all you know, a buyer could have left out the cable you included in the box.
So you have to give it time to go back. On average, I would say it would take 14-20days for a full refund (as it's going to Korea)

And $200 - and not $50 -as if it gets lost or broken, fedex or whoever is responsible is still responsible for $200 in damages. Thus there's still insurance for it at that given price. Sure it wont' be full price but might cover your loses in some respects.

dream-seller update:

Hi thank you for the message.

We can only guess it will be this Thursday (Korean time).
The reason we are keep getting bad quality monitors is because the manufacture is not getting enough panels from Samsung.
Therefore they sent some remaining bad quality monitors to us.

I'm truly sorry, since there are many inconveniences you have had, we would like to provide compensations.

1. For those of you who would like to cancel, we will provide full refund plus $10 compensation.
2. For those of you who would like to keep the order we will also provide $10 compensation.


Again, I apologize for any inconvenience and hope you could kindly understand.
We always try our best to send out the best quality products as well as best service to our buyers.
Our customer's satisfactory means everything to us. We will continuously improve our service for better business.

Tentative date now...

That's a sign of a brilliant seller. No matter which way you look at it.
Sure you might have lost time, but the reseller is going out of their way to make it OK for you. Heck even for just a "positive" feedback. Props to that seller!
