I am only praying they haven't been through my bank account (can't access it right now to check, online banking down atm) and being thankful I used my CC rather than a direct withdrawal.

Well, that just confirmed it for me. I don't trust ebay enough to order one of these. Gonna go with ipsledmonitors. At least they'd be easier to go after, being in the US.
In progress.

After reading ALL the pages in this very informational and friendly forum thread, i decided to go with Qnix QX 2710 Evolution II from Amazon/MNW Global. Monitor arrived in 4 days in my country EU/Greece, and was delivered to me with little BLB (- bottom center portion of the screen-) which i fixed 100% by applying pressure on the metal frame that holds the LCD panel with the use of a cylinder i created with electrical tape between the outer crappy bezel and a special spot i found was the cause of trouble on the afformentioned metal frame! So No more BLB for me, monitor has perfect colors by using Dell's U2713HM sRGB color profile and runs at 120 Hz no prob with Toasty's well known driver patch. Very happy with my purchase even if it cost me 329$ plus 100$ customs import taxes! I highly recommend it over Dell U2713Hm which i had on my desk for months and sold it cause couldn't stand it anymore (- very slow for me in gaming and everyday use, overshoot, crosshatching, yellow tint BLB e.t.c-)thumb.gif

Anyone had one of these monitors for a while? Just trying to gauge how long they will last, especially the overclocked ones.

Do these korean sellers offer warranty also?

Korean sellers offer 1 month with them, the manufacturers supposedly offer another 11 months afterwards. Don't count on either, esp as you'll still have to pay for shipping to Korea and back.

With regards to OCing damaging the monitor - not sure, I don't think it would as long as you weren't pushing every last Hz out of your monitor. And people have had OCs running for months and been fine, and I haven't heard of Catleap 2Bs suddenly dying, but I wouldn't expect anything.

If you get ST warranty that could cover you, but I spoke to them and they said the mods for BLB fix and panel play aren't manufacturer approved so they can't cover you if you want to do those.

I just knocked mine down to the absolute lowest brightness setting and the flickering is definitely there (not huge, but there). But 1 step up and it isn't noticeable, above 2 steps I cannot see anything.

I have had mine for the better part of 6 months overclocked 120hz(and higher) 24/7 no problems.

Does squaretrade pay for return shipping? Also if you get a bad monitor (low oc, several dead pixels) is that reason enough to claim with squaretrade, or does it have to be an actual defect?
