Most of these sellers have multiple listings. Only thing I can think of is when they change prices, they don't always get around to changing them all at the same time. I'd go with hulustar, I have two from him and have heard great things.

I also have only a DVI-I port on my HD9750 so I was doing a lot of reading to see if I can use one of these.
Now I just have to choose one and hope for no BLB or dead pixels.

Can anyone recommend a reliable ebay seller?

Also, why are there duplicates of many of the monitors that cost more, but are exactly the same as far as I can tell? Like these:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-2560x1440-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-Matte-/140966017556?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20d23aba14
http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-2560x1440-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-Matte-/111085489556?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item19dd360d94#shId

Why does one cost more?
Both those monitors are the exact same monitor..Most people on here lately have gone with hulustar..I got a really good one from them as have others..A couple people got some with bad back light bleed..Most the ones that were being bought on here were this one..As Hulustar has a 0-2 dead pixel promotion still going on..

Has anyone else here used one of these monitors with a DVI-I port on their video card? As far as I know it should work, but all the sellers say only DVI-D so I'm still a little worried about ordering one.

Sorry, I was not clear. Dual link was implied.
Has anyone else here used one of these monitors with a dual link DVI-I port on their video card? I have no idea why it would not work with dual link DVI-I and only DVI-D, but the sellers seem to think so. I don't really trust their technical expertise though.

See this:


Also singe link limits the resolution and the bandwidth that the cable is capable of.

I think what the seller is really trying to say is that it "wont work" with a dual-link DVI-I cable as it will not plug into the dual-link DVI-D plug on the monitor.

So as long as you used a dual-link DVI-D cable it should work - it will connect properly and it is still dual-link. Those 4 small pins on the DVI-I plug are for analog signals anyway, so they are not needed for dual-link operation when using dual-link DVI-I, so they can just be ignored.

Thanks. Yeah, I guess that makes sense. Their English advertising could use a bit of work. I would still feel better knowing someone else is using it with a dual link DVI-I video card though. worriedsmiley.gif

I got my Qnix from hulustar and it is spot on.
I also use my Radeon7970 Which Is DVI-I so you shouldn't have any issues with your card thumb.gif
