I'm in the same boat with Dream Seller. I ordered on Friday, then noticed he's not shipping until the 26th. If I don't hear something or have a tracking number in the next couple days, I'm going to take action too. Doesn't ebay have a policy about not selling items you are out of stock on?

My transaction is already completed and the money is drawn from my account. How were you able to cancel the order? Did you file a dispute? And then what?

I dislike the lack of communication and excuses he gives for the delays.

well, it started with someone here telling me they got a perfect pixel one from dreamseller and it had deadpixels with dreamseller refusing replacement. Their policy states up to 2 dead pixels. So I messaged dreamseller about 10hours after my purchase to cancel my order in which he responded that he would grant the return and that is see it in my PayPal statement later that day. 4 days passed and still no refund. In between the wait I sent him at least 6 messages all of which were ignored. I could tell because he was still leaving people feedback during that time. Very stressful situation to deal with no doubt. I have made an order with accessories whole. Their pixel perfect is overpriced but they guarantee 0 dead pixels and minimum backlight bleed. They actually test their monitors, at least that's what they say anyways. He was swift with his reply and provided good communication so either way I feel much more confident about buying from him rather than dreamseller.

I ordered Friday also, thinking it would ship today. He should just ship us the Qnix. It's only a 10 dollar difference. I thought of doing a dispute but he takes long enough to respond to emails.

Just got my Qnix from green-sum today(non-pixel perfect edition). It had one dead pixel which I don't really notice and took some heavy looking to even find. BLB is very slight - there's a small spot in the lower left but it's not bad at all. What I did notice was I have a dark region in the upper middle. I didn't really see it until I hit 120Hz which made all my colors a lot darker. Greys, reds and blues really make the dark region unbearable. Judging from the OP, I'm guessing the tape mod might fix this? Anyone else ever resolve a dark region?

I'm glad everyone got together with this forum. This is literally the most support for a monitor I have ever seen! FWIW(assuming I can fix this dark region) I think this monitor is a good buy. I've been using a Monoprice Zero-G 27 inch for a month now, so I get to see them side by side before I sell the Monoprice one to a friend of mine. Here's my two cents on the comparison of the two(both were glossy):

Monoprice Zero-G
pros:
-Brighter screen. Helped the glare issue a little. Almost too bright but I got used to it. Melted my eyes when waking up and using it in a dark room.
-Better build quality. Felt solid when I picked it up and moved it around today. Qnix did not feel as durable.
-Warranty
-Zero dead pixels as advertised.
cons:
-Severe BLB
-Limited to 60Hz

Qnix
pros:
-Overclockable
-cheaper
-BLB can be fixed(hopefully)
cons:
-cheap stand
-defects (i.e. dark region, dead pixel, bent thumb screw for stand, cheap feeling casing)

Overall it's a wash for me. I'm keeping the Qnix only because of overclocking. It's nice to be rid of the BLB, but if I were to be ok with 60Hz, I think I would have stuck with the Monoprice. I did get it for $350 shipped though, so that had something to do with it.

Can anyone help me?
I've had the monitor for about a month. It's been overclocked to around 100 hz just fine. Then the blue light started to flicker weirdly, and then the monitor turned off.
when I plug the dvi cable in, I hear a faint pop, and then the blue light goes dim again. It can still detect the monitor, but no picture. I'm hoping this is just a problem with the dvi cable, and not the monitor.
But then would the light be going dim like that if it was just the dvi cable?
Any suggestions before I try to buy another cable?

Well I ordered two screens. One from green-sum (eBay) and another from ipsledmonitors.com. Paid about the same price for both. Both monitors are nice and below is a quick overview of my experience:

ipsledmonitors.com
They are based out of the U.S. and have a pretty good return policy. They are very responsive through email and packaged the monitor pretty good. You can see in the picture that the entire box is layered in bubble wrap.


I received my monitor from ipsledmonitors in 2-3 days from ordering. Very fast process.

Green-sums:
I did not take a picture of green-sums because it wasn't really even packaged, it was just shipped in the box the monitor comes with and had no bubble wrap.


So which monitor was better? I would have to say green-sums. Here is a picture of the backlight bleed of each monitor:



The camera brings out the back light bleed so much and does not look that bad in person. Before you make fun of pics, I did see a "how to take a picture of BLB" on the front of the thread but have not read it...
So clearly ipsledmonitors.com monitor has much more bleed than green-sums. Green-sum's BLB is extremely minimal (again the picture brings out the light so much). Since I only watch movies on one monitor, I do not believe the BLB from ipsledmonitors.com is worth returning.

As for overclocking, well I got them both to 120Hz in 10 minutes.


Dead pixels are a flip of the coin. But since the BLB was better on green-sums, I would say theirs is better.

Anyone know why the multi-input model QX2710 is 8ms instead of 6ms like with the DVI-D only version? Or is ispledmonitors off there?

I found the Youtube playlist to be very helpful, and thanks if the guy who produced them ever reads this, but a bit scattered.

In a more concise fashion:


green-sum claims to inspect every monitor before it goes out but clearly they're fibbing. I'm guessing this damage had to have happened at Samsung before the sub-panel was even assembled. I don't see any impact that could bend a folded steel frame could not have broken the glass of an LCD panel.

Once I fiddled with the frame on a flat surface for awhile and got it mostly flat and torqued back mostly square, I went ahead and applied the electrical tape because why not.

100% better!

Thanks everyone.

I decided to also do a tape mod. I also checked my monitor frame and found it to be exactly like yours. My frame in the middle horizontal section was definitely bent fairly badly and green-sum said they checked all monitors.

Did the tape mod for only the horizontal section. (going to do all 4 again once I get my 3 monitor stand) I did end up damaging the bezel a little bit when opening with a screw driver. I used a credit card that I was going to throw away and slid it across. The frame just popped out easily with it. You can see the difference below. The photo does look better than it actually is.


Left is with tape mod, right is without.
