Which all kind of makes me wonder what kind of testing Samsung is doing on these panels, and why they are being sold off this way. If there are truly perfect panels available, as some have gotten, then what's the defect that forces them to be sold for half-price?

I just wonder if some of the sellers that don't do as much volume as the more popular sellers, just have stock that may not be part of the bad batches. I have checked feedback from my seller, people have been getting panels they are happy with. Reviews even as early as today.

As for panel quality, well they are all suppose to be A-, they also don't have the marketing expense of larger companies like Asus etc, so they can have some savings there.

This is exactly how I feel.

And I had to wait 5 days. .. ordered sunday..shipped friday..will be here wednesday. . I sent a total of 5 emails back a forth with dream-seller and he assured me all the way through. If I get a bad quality monitor I will blame shipping. wink.gif

I wondered that as well. My panel is almost perfect. A tiny bit of BBL that isn't noticeable unless you put a black background on it. Heck, one of my ASUS VG248QEs has more bbl.

I was looking to add two more X-Star's for a triple setup but then saw this deal at Rakuten/Monoprice. 27' 1440p for $289.99 plus you get $29 in Rakuten bucks. I know it's usually better to get three of the same monitors but this is really tempting...

I ordered a Matte one for $279.00. Maybe dream-seller still had a bunch of "glossies" left in stock?

I wasn't aware dream-seller was selling Glossy ones. Just Matte and Tempered Glass?

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?
£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.

My stuck pixel is exactly one pixel (which consists of three sub-pixels RGB) and you would be hard pressed to find it, remember at this high resolution the pixels are very small and there are 3.6 M pixels, I have good eyes and I actually looked very carefully at my monitor and for a few days I thought mine was Pixel Perfect!

You make a valid point, if your fps are below 60 fps you probably will not notice it if you overclock your monitor. But I prefer to have my stuff run as optimized and as fast as possible anyway whether it is the weakest link in the chain or not. I also use SVP to do interpolation from 24 fps to 120 fps to match my 120 Hz OC when I watch films and videos and it just looks fantastic. Windows also is much smoother eg. your mouse movement.

I cannot answer your customs answer but not only is it illegal to undervalue a item, but my opinion is, if it got lost, stolen or broken in transit then the seller will lose a lot of money because it would be insured for much less, hence their unwillingness to underdeclare.

I and many others I believe are still of the opinion rather save yourself a few bucks and buy a "regular" version instead of pixel perfect. Pixel perfect may also have one bad pixel and as far as I know no seller would pay for a return and send you another one without a defective pixel.

Remember: In the end you get what you pay for. If you cannot accept something to only be 98% good then rather do not pull the plug on one of these. However, if you know what to expect, and realize there is a 1% chance that shipping or your monitor will be a stuff up, and can live with a minor defect then these monitors can be one of the best buys you ever make, especially considering the benefit of overclocking.
