post #3361 of 25922
I have some additional information and some possible insight regarding my "pixel perfect" monitor with a stuck pixel. I left the monitor running a LCD Fix website yesterday which runs a full screen snow/test pattern. When I got home nothing had changed, so I decided to stop wasting electricity and turned it off. This morning, I turned the computer back on to check Ebay for a response...and no stuck pixel. Hmm. I got cautiously optimistic, but remembered that when I first turned the monitor on I didn't see any stuck pixels either. So, I left it for about 30 minutes, came back, and the same pixel was stuck on red again. I'm thinking that whatever testing process they do for perfect pixel monitors (in the factory, as mine had the red sticker on the box) must not be terribly vigorous, as mine looks perfect at first but becomes flawed once it is on for a bit.

Anyways, green-sum contacted me again last night and offered to either refund me the difference between a perfect pixel model and one that is not ($20,) or asked me to reply back if I wanted to do a return and he would tell me the next steps. Seeing as how the monitor I'm trying to upgrade from does not have any pixel issues, I'm going to try to get it replaced with another pixel perfect one. I remember seeing a few people who did a replacement on this thread (I read the whole thing before clicking "buy,") but not the process. Is there someone reading this who had to do a return who can give me some insight? I'm assuming the seller would be the one paying to ship the monitor back, not me...after all, the product is faulty. Paying to ship back to Korea would not be fun. If I can get one without stuck pixels, I think I'll like this monitor, crummy stand, blb and all wink.gif

Ask him to pay for return shipping and send a perfect pixel replacement asap (within 48 hours) or you'll open an ebay claim. There have been reports of sellers trying to "time out" the claim so you should be pretty blunt.

It also would help to add "I'm reporting this on forums so if this goes smoothly I'll tell them" - maybe not in those exact words but something to that effect.

just a quick question i currently have a his 7950 iceq boost and what to no if its worth going to a 770 with this monitor?

I think people are being too picky and unreasonable when they order a pixel perfect version. Sure we all want every pixel to be perfect, but if you read then you will see that the policy is almost always that there will be 0-2 pixels bad for these versions as well as guaranteed no bright pixels, while regular models can have up to 5 bad pixels. To make such a fuss that you have 1 bad pixel on the whole monitor made up of 3,692,160 pixels when you bought a known defective panel is just silly.

No, read some reviews.

For anyone that has an sli setup, would you need 2 sli bridge like crossfire?

How's the heat output on these monitors? I grabbed the Auria 27" from micrcenter (who were kind enough to let me open the box and find one with perfect pixels) and the CCFL backlight makes the monitor put out a lot of heat, so much so that it actually makes the area around my desk uncomfortably hot after being on for a while. I'm heavily considering selling the auria and picking up one of these.

No, and no crossfire doesnt need 2 bridges.
Come on people, this topic is not the place for such simple questions.
We have google for that.
post #3369 of 25922
I mean for this qnix monitor as OP suggested having 2 crossfire bridges in order to OC this monitor. Now, does it relate to sli as well?

Agreed, it's annoying when people buy perfect pixel, get 1 dead pixel, and complain. They need to read the product listings and ask on anything that is even slightly ambiguous before pressing buy.

That said there are some legitimate cliams - e.g. when pixel perfect has 2 dead pixel or 1 stuck pixel.
Another problem is that green-sum has a very different pixel perfect policy that some people don't read.
