[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 61

post #601 of 25887
My monitor seems to have some grease stains on the monitor screen - anyone else have this? It's like greasy fingerprints!

I don't know if it was my fault or not but yeah haha.

I'm currently thinking of buying a QNIX QX2710 LED Evolution 2 matte monitor, this one to be exact and I was just wondering from anybody in the UK how bad customs has been.

been thinking about buying from that seller also but I live in Portugal. Is the matte really much better than the glossy?

It all really comes down to your environment, if you have lights facing or pointing down at your monitor or windows then it's not going to look good with a glossy, it will reflect.

Where as matte won't obviously, also I just prefer not to have glass in front of the panel, though it does look nice.

Also I don't own any of these displays yet so I can't speak about them specifically.

Customs depends on the marked value of the item. Look in the OP for an expandable section on customs taxes and vat by country. There is a link to a customs calculator there

Yeah I've calculated it, the price wasn't desirable to say the least.
I'm just wondering if anybody and how many people have been hit hard with customs in the UK.

Customs hasn't harassed me as of yet wink.gif

PS My Catleap didn't attract any custom charges either (and shouldn't have tbh since we have a EU-SK free trade agreement - I know there was some controversy about monitors and Tvs but AFAIK that's been resolved).

Fedex hasn't billed me either, they certainly didn't at the door (I asked the courier specifically if there was more to pay). But I wouldn't put it past HMRC to leave a gap and then pounce l8r mad.gif but as yet no demand for VAT so just £200 inc. del so far (cross fingers)...

Even if they do hit me with VAT it'll still work out at less than half the price I paid for the Catleap 2b...

I've seen quite a few. Its unavoidable to pay nothing though. The best you can do is leave a note on the ebay purchase instructing the seller to mark the item as a gift and at a low value

Yeah I did that with Dream-seller but he replied (very quickly) that he couldn't do that so I'm presuming he didn't...

Thanks a lot for all the info, it's nice to hear a good experience.
