Well i thought it was price.....or maybe no scaler so less input lag. Also PLS per price(which is different from others and is different from the first reason and most korean panels are IPS not PLS). I mean i was buying and recommending these before i ever started overclocking them. This is coming from someone who has used all the name brands and compared.

Not sure where you were going with this post but it is almost derogatory.

Exactly, if you want a QNIX get a QNIX/, dell doesn't make a comparable monitor. also, "safe" is all relative, people have been burned on ebay. there is a reason why the price is so low, these monitors are likely to have defects there is no guarantee.

That is why you get a square trade if possible and have seller communication. Even with a square trade the price is relatively vast from a name brand monitor. Safe is relative but we are on "overclock.net" taking risk is where its at here biggrin.gif

EDIT: Defects are a possibility but there has been plenty of people with no reported defects and/or just having backlight bleed(which can happen with name brand as well). For example mine had NO defects at all and the backlight bleed was easily fixed with the backlight bleed "fix"

i'm talking about the incidents where people have either received DOA monitors or extremely bad ones and were SOL. I suppose you could buy square trade, then wait a period of time and send it to them to try to get your money back. again, everything has a price, to some (myself included) that's not an appealing way to buy $300 item.

Agreed, but you are not buying a 300 dollar item, you are buying a 1200 dollar item for 300(more if you include any refresh rate bumps).

EDIT: Actually looks like you can get them for closer to 900-1000 now name brand.

totally agree on the true value, maybe not as high as $1200 provided the bezel/A- panel smile.gif, im more responding to the notion that people are being crapped on for wanting to pay a little extra to have assurance that they can return a monitor they don't want. ebay just isn't for everyone in the market for one of these. i think it's actually good that there are alternatives because it adds competition, they have to compete with price, and ebayers have to consider their return policy/lack thereof.

edit:
also, i wish people would stop coming on here fishing for basic advice, seems like the rest of us have made up our minds and moved on. I read through nearly this entire thread to make up my mind, why can't the others (instead of posting large BOLDED questions to get attention). just saying rolleyes.gif

Agreed, These and name brands have there own markets. I personally recommend ditching the bezel it is a piece of crap compared to any other monitor really(maybe some HANNs monitors are close LOL). The A- is the gamble part that everyone MUST read the OP before purchase so they know this. It may be completely fine and have a offset gamma that got it the A- sticker or it could be a mess of stuck pixels(that PP doesn't cover). That is why it is imperative to read research and make sure this is a good deal for said person. I also always tell people to communicate with the Ebay seller and look into warranty alternatives for ANYTHING on Ebay over a certain amount(100 seems like a good bar to not cross)

EDIT: Definitely and on top of that they have slammed long running members for telling them to read. I mean in terms of basic forum use it is pretty standard to AT LEAST read the OP and do a little term searching. rolleyes.gif

I want a 2560x1440 monitor that can do 120hz without any problems (dead pixels, BLB, etc.). Can any Dell monitor do this? Can the eBay sellers do this?

Afaik, no, so the only choice here is ipsledmonitors. Pay the premium to have a guaranteed 120hz monitor, and if not then free returns.

Received my X-star a few days ago, and wow! This is my first 1440p monitor so that in itself is amazing, but it also arrived in only 2 days, and with very minimal BLB, and no dead pixels. As icing on the cake, I've gone as high as 120hz with no problems at all.
A Leap Forward...

I read (well, skimmed) both this thread and the other one completely before buying mine - sure, it took a few hours, but I didn't have to repeatedly ask the same things to people tired of answering them.
