I understand they are cheap but I was just wondering what the chance of getting a good one is...I bought this one btw.

There are issues with all monitors. Go to the Dell 2713hm site and there are some guys there that have had to send back 6 monitors to get a good one.. And the Asus PB278Q has issues also. I love my Qnix as there is less light bleed then my 27 in Asus TN panel. And zero dead pixels..

Which one did you buy ? the same one as mine ?

I was going to say the same. There's potential issues with every monitor. Even from big name companies, blb, dead pixels you name it. It's just whether or not the issues are within the realm of acceptability (amount of blb, amount of dead pixels etc). I've had no issues with my first two (minor blb on both, one with no dead pixels, the other with one). Ill post how number three is when it gets here. smile.gif

Yes same model but I didn't get the perfect pixel. Yet I still got perfect pixels..

I'm only going by what I got, you *may* get a different cable length. Some people have reported getting a singlelink cable instead! doh.gif I imagine they just chuck in anything that's handy LOL...

Actually, before I'm sued: I'm sure they take the utmost care in selecting the finest quality wines, I mean cables for our delectation and drinking err, viewing pleasure! thumb.gif

I was happy with stability with it just touching the wall on one side...until I noticed the bezel has been rubbing black onto the wall.

I use a table clamping vesa stand that I got form monoprice. I like them, but if the weight is slightly off center the monitor will sag a little, so you need to make adjustments to counteract it. It takes a little bit of work to get them adjusted properly. You have to compensate for the sag and tilts. However, even with all of this. i wouldn't recommend them. They are cheap though.

Chris.

I have both a Qnix and a Catleap and I kinda regret jumping in with both feet first with the Catleap as it was more than twice as much! sozo.gif

But of course there was no way of knowing what prices would do or if and when new, similar models would come out *sigh*

Why buy a calibration tool when there are already a ton of .icc profiles out there for you to choose from?
