Well...no point to the 'offer game' if you are going to start high but that might be a bit too low, yo.

I bought from Dream-Seller a Pixel Perfect Glossy Qnix for £200/$310 (instead of £220 or something) so aim around that area

Ordered from Dream Seller, arrived 6days (dispatched on Thursday and stuck @ customs on sat & sunday) no vat/duty invoice yet (FedEx was courier) but will probably get one soon.

All in all great purchase. Just need to make my corian desk so i can finally mount this and my shimian.


Korean monitors are awesome.
you want the 24AWG cable like this one..

Cheap price but im from UK (shipping is outragoeus for 1 cable) any Uk alternatives to not break the bank (even though monitor already accomplished that lol)

Got my Evo II today! From what I can see, I have 0 dead Pixels and very minimal blb. I'm so excited and can't wait to game on this beast. It's still at 60Hz, but I plan on overclocking it to 95-120. Thanks for all the help guys!

On the Qnix, how difficult/dangerous is opening the monitor and doing the tape mod? It was a little hard to tell how much needs to be done just to get to the panel based on the complete disassembly videos on youtube.

This is the one I ordered: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Monoprice-3ft-24AWG-CL2-Dual-Link-DVI-D-Cable-Black-/400480182265?pt=UK_Sound_Vision_Other&hash=item5d3e7a9ff9 Was the cheapest I could find.

However: I urge you to use a much longer (6ft at least) cable - remember these are incredibly inflexible, you really want a straight line from port to port, they hardly bend at all (plus they have a big 'nodule' near the ends which makes it hard to screw them in).

I had to put my Full Tower case on some books and the monitor balanced precariously on the edge of the desk in order for it to reach! And the upshot was, no increase in hz (at least on the Catleap I tried - I didn't bother with my Qnix as that does 120hz on the stock cable as it is)...

6ft Monoprice are about £25 from eBay.co.uk (free shipping from Germany included).

Whether it's worth it only you can say...
