If you want to save some money then stick with ebay, but I would avoid paying more for pixel perfect because they apparently charge more without doing any tests.

No idea on the fedex vs USPS for Canada (I'm in the US). http://www.dutycalculator.com/ is a tool you could use to figure out the customs. Seems like you're going to spend more either way.

2560x1440monitor.com was one of the first site I came across , asked a question and never got a reply....almost bought a 2560x1600 and or 2560x1440 from them.

A long time lurker of OCN, and all the talk about these monitors made me splurge on one. Non-perfect pixel matte for $289 + ~$20 duty to Japan. No dead pixels, instantly OC'd to 120hz, and looks great with the icc cor35vet posted.


Quite nice.........BUT

My galaxy s3 downplays the actual amount of back light bleed but as I use this monitor in a dark room AND have dark desktop wallpapers, it's a big issue. It's not even as bad as other people's, but it's still annoying. I wanna take this thing apart but I'd have absolutely NO idea what I'm doing and things would...break...for lack of a more descriptive word.

what are the chances that you will get a good amount of backlight bleeding? on the qnix QX2710?

From what I've seen, you're pretty much all but guaranteed to get backlight bleeding as most of the eBay sellers now put in the listings "There could be little backlight bleeding, we will not accept returns for this reason".

Also,

Does anybody know if I can use a standard UK kettle plug in the power block that comes with the X-Star? The same one that I use in my PSU?

As long as you're using that standard three pin on the female side to go into the power brick, the male side can be whatever you want.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UK-Plug-to-IEC-Kettle-Lead-1m-Power-Cord-Cable-PC-Mains-/290939879086?pt=UK_Computing_CablesConnectors_RL&hash=item43bd5e3eae - It would be this one, so I assume so, thanks!

Although a new cable, not the used one in that link, lol.

If you check the first page, there is a guide on one of the drop downs!

dilloway, thanks for the response. How much did it cost you all in? Did you get Qnix or X-star? Did you get their warranty or squaretrade? I'm not even sure if we can get SquareTrade warranty in Canada.
