Don't know if I had DHL send mine, but I was charged £50 on a £220 monitor. Not bad - £44 was VAT and £6 was "admin charges" which seems fairly reasonable compared to what others have been charged in the US.

Thanks for your replies, do they charge at the door or invoice like FedEx, a wk + later by post?

Is there a test to run to check for horizontal lines at high refresh rates?

Whilst I have mine OC'd to 110 in Desktop there are no lines and playing BF3 for the past couple of weeks I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary.

However I was playing Alan Wake yesterday and noticed random green horizontal lines would appear, which leads to believe either my OC is not stable (LCD Standard timings) or it's possibly a sign that the monitor is beginning to die.

I am so close to pulling the trigger on one of these, does anyone have a thoughts on the optional 3 year warranty ?

Technically unless you're extremely unlucky it won't break. I believe it has the same failure rates as other high end monitors. (but it comes with dead pixels/BLB)

With that said.. I opted for it because this monitor is already cheap and peace of mind is nice. You can usually get 20% off squaretrade. And if it ever breaks I'll be fully covered.

Funny you say that as yesterday when i was playing BF3 at 120hz i noticed some blueish lines but only if the background was really dark..Like in the Canals when i ran into a container..But other then that it never happened..So i changed back to my stock cable and in BF3 they went away so i thought i got a bad monoprice cable..But then i went to play a combat flight sim called Aces High2 and i got some lines again..But this has never happened in the 3 weeks i have had this..I hope we are not ruining these things already...thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Happy i got square trade in case i break it lol..

At 120Hz I get some horizontal lines, but only on very specific shades on gray. Search google for "black white gradients" and in the images look through a few of the more "blocky" darker results, and you might find the lines again.
Normally the lines are blue, if I enable "alternate DVI method" in CCC they become red, and if I scroll up and down they move with the picture.

Not sure what it is about those colors that do this. I'm calibrating my monitor sometime this week, hopefully that'll help.

Random green lines is an indication of the quality of the DVI cable your using - you can try and swap out another, or get a 24AWG cable - but its no guarantee that itll be better. But i give it a 50/50 shot - my included 28AWG was better than both 24AWG cables i tried.
