Okay guys finally my QNIX from Ipsledmonitors.com arrived, and I am sad to say I got unlucky and received a bad one
Poor overclocking capabilities, worse backlight bleeding than my previous QNIX, one stuck pixel in the top center of the screen, and whatever this is. At first it looks like a spec of dirt on the screen, so I tried wiping it off. No luck.
Upon closer inspection I fear for the worst. Is this what I'm afraid it is?
There are some small differences between this and my first QNIX I bought back in April but died on me not too long ago. The new one is built a little more sturdier. I still wouldn't consider it sturdy, but it doesn't creak when I try to tilt it and the panel play is much better, although still there a little.This one has "QX2710LED" in white letters in the top left bezel of the corner, where my first one doesn't. Different power brick, and a little different gloss finish on the bezel.
Looks like I am returning this one though
This may be the first bad one from Ipsledmonitors.com reported here. It's probably just bad luck, they seem friendly and helpful from their emails and I'm sure they'll want to remedy this. I'll let you guys know how the return process goes. It just sucks I'm going to have to wait a week or more for a replacement (remember that these monitors still actually ship from Korea even though you're dealing with a US company), especially because I can't be sure the replacement will be better
But I guess I'm relieved in a way. If I bought this on eBay I would've been completely out of luck. I'm glad I can return and try again for free, but still... so much work and time involved!Edited by apav - 7/25/13 at 10:21pm
