Any reason why you would suggest them over ebay sellers? Are they known to grantee perfect monitors even though they are the same models sold else where?
The only reason is there 30 day return policy..If you get a bad light bleed monitor or a few dead pixels from Korea you pretty much gotta deal with it or fix it yourself..With them if you get a bad one you can return it and get a new one..That's what website stats no one has had to do this yet so we don't know this from experience..

Finally got it biggrin.gif

No pixel problems, virtually no BLB, 115hz overclock. Very happy biggrin.gif

The only problem was I got the wrong monitor, I originally ordered the Qnix but recieved the X-star, I didn't really mind (basically the same monitor minus the logo) but informed BCC anyway of the problem and they told me they would partially refund me $40, bringing the cost down to $280, which is awesome biggrin.gif

Finally dream-seller has shipped my monitor, 4 days later after placing order can't complain, now I hope FedEx don't try to rip me off like UPS! lol jk

Bought a 27" QNIX from dream-seller a little over a week ago. No dead pixels, minor back light bleed from the bottom right ... overall pretty happy with it. I swapped the stand out for a VESA based desk stand I had sitting around and it works MUCH better than the wimpy little clear nub.

OC'd it with CRU to 120Mhz and through CCC on an AMD 7950. Didn't tinker with any specific settings at all, just flipped it to 120 and rebooted. Worked great, zero artifacts, no weird lines, etc.

Ran it like that for a few days, zero issues .... then I got the dreaded "video driver stopped responding but recovered" popup, and a couple minutes after the monitor went black. Blue LED in the bottom just blinked over and over. Changed cables ... no help ... rebooting ... no help. Had to borrow a monitor and set the QNIX as secondary and I was able to switch back to 60Mhz with CRU and it worked when I rebooted.

Tinkered some more with it and its working at 120 again ... fingers crossed it stays that way. lol .. first time overclocking a monitor, but I followed directions well enough on the first page.



Where do you get these VESA base stands at? I been looking for some and I haven't got very successful and I seen some youtube videos where people got these vesa stands attached to the back of the monitor without taking off the bezel.

I asked a few questions via email to ipsledmonitors.com. For anyone who is interested here is what they said:

Hi, Do you offer pixel perfect monitors? I am a graphic designer and need a monitor with zero dead / stuck pixels. If this is something that you can guarantee I will most certainly place an order with you.
Quote:
Hi Jonny,

We understand your concerns. Unfortunately, “pixel perfect” is a myth that Korean ebay sellers have invented to get more money. There is no manufacturer that can guarantee 100% zero pixel defects on their products, not even Dell or ASUS. If someone is claiming to sell only pixel perfect monitors, they are likely being dishonest. We would rather take the high-road and acknowledge that there is a rare chance a monitor could develop a dead/stuck pixel.

All of our monitors are inspected before they are sealed in the OEM packaging. We cannot reopen sealed OEM products for a second inspection due to our merchant account agreement.

If you are very concerned about monitor quality, I can advise you that we received a new shipment of x-star DP2710 monitors and the quality has been excellent; zero defects sold thus far.

Again, we appreciate your interest in our monitors. Please let us know if you have additional questions.

Thanks,

So what happens if I get a monitor with 5 dead pixels, I’m screwed right? It’s a big risk for me, some companies offer a pixel checking service where they will open the box and inspect the monitor before its shipped. This isn't a new thing it’s been around for a long time.

I would be willing to pay more for this service if you offered it. I have heard that some of the Korean sellers on eBay offer this.
Quote:
Hi Jonny,

I completely understand. We are aware of the ebay “pixel perfect” test service that is offered. Unfortunately, many have ordered “pixel perfect” tested monitors from these sellers and received rows of dead pixels. It’s pretty well publicized amongst the monitor enthusiast forums that ebay sellers are not performing the tests that they claim, and returns on such items do not appear to be supported. We encourage you to research your seller thoroughly.

You are free to pursue a pixel perfect tested monitor on ebay, but it’s not in our business to misrepresent products to our customers. We hope that you see value in our honesty and our customer support.

Is there no chance that you can open one of the boxes before shipping it?
Quote:
We simply do not have the time or the staff to reopen each of our monitors and perform these tests, we are now shipping 20-30 monitors/day and supplies are limited. Moreover pixel and backlight test can be completely subjective (often a dead pixel ends up being a speck dust).

If you absolutely must inspect your monitor before purchasing, we recommend you buy from a local shop where you can see it in person. Sorry, we hope you understand.

So I'm not sure if its worth the risk for anyone outside US ordering from them as postage costs would inhibit me being able to send them it back for replacement. Pondering what to do now, I'm in a bit of a pickle!

Thanks for that info. I'm most likely going to place an order from them this week. I was successfully able to convince my dad to buy me a QX2710 in trade for my u2711. Everybody wins lol

After a few months, my QNIX is still going strong. Looks like they last.

I don't use 96hz and 120hz much anymore, because the patched drivers kills the ability to do hardware acceleration for mkv and 3D Blu-rays off my system, which I use to watch videos all the time connected to my HDTV.

If I could have both on all the time, things would be awesome.
post #4239 of 25893
Yeah I have been back at 60Hz for a few weeks now since I reinstalled Windows. Will overclock again but I can't get such high frames in most games I play anyway. Also, I am very used to the stock brightness level by now and I will really be able to perceive/judge how much it darkens with higher Hz.

The reason I went with them is that I just prefer to have a return label that's in the US. And they'll cover return shipping. Also, don't get their 3 year warranty, get Squaretrade's who will either replace the monitor or give you a check in the amount you paid.
