Hey Guys!

I'm really considering buying one of these bad boys, this one to be exact: http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-2-27-2560x1440-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-Matte-/111063050995?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item19dbdfaaf3

Although i'm a bit worried about all this Korea shipping, and getting one a good condition etc. also taxes as i live in Denmark.

I'm pretty much between this or the Dell U2412M.

Also have anyone had some sorta big problems with getting the monitor and the condition it's in? I know that there can be a certain amount of backlight bleed, and dead pixels, but how bad is it?

That's exactly what i thought at the beginning but after looking at it at night it turns out i do but i don't give a rats (explicit) about it!
It's not noticeable plus only shows in black backgrounds.

2 spots at the top of the monitor, my ASUS IPS had more glow than this monitor..

Even so, I believe the safest thing to do will be to order the matte finish version, right? I mean, is the glossy one much more sharper?

Glossy finish has a better look to the monitor in general, so you might even take a glance at it even when the monitor is off and admire it lol. Versus matte, yes glossy has brighter contrast and color intensity because it does not have an anti-glare layer. Is it noticeable? Again depends on what your eyes deem as a beautiful display. I love glossy displays, but to me it is not worth having to constantly focus on my reflections and other reflections every 5-10mins because it annoys the hell out of me. Can't have the best of both worlds, so in this case I have to go with not being annoyed. Seems like you are in an environment where you can change things around easily to suit your glossy monitor in the event you get one. Picture display is definitely beautiful so you can try it out if you want.

Yeah...I would care more about dead pixel(s) even if at a far edge. And like I had said earlier I have lessened it's intensity by raising the display and angling forward too.

Where do you recommend buying the Qnix Qx2710?

The cheapest one i can find right now is the excellentcastle: http://www.ebay.com/itm/27-QNIX-QX2710-Evolution-ll-Matte-Screen-2560x1440-QHD-PLS-Monitor-/261204411997?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item3cd0ff065d
But i have a 40$ shipping.

There is also lovelypeople: http://www.ebay.com/itm/QNIX-QX2710-LED-2560x1440-QHD-Samsung27-PLS-Panel-DVI-D-Monitor-Matte-Screen-/161014994936?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item257d3dd7f8
But it says matte in the header and glossy in the description. Also a 30$ shipping.

Green-Sum got this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Brand-New-QNIX-QX2710-LED-Evolution-27-2560x1440-WQHD-Samsung-PLS-Monitor-/140961485035?pt=AU_comp_monitor&hash=item20d1f590eb But it doesn't say whether it's matte or glossy. No Shipping


Do they got different return politics etc.? Or are some of them known to have bad customer service and such?

Just looks that way in the lighting in the photo. Tried at night, it's much better than my LG monitor even. Just perfect black.
Also really glad I got the matte one. Great.

Thanks again. But if you can control the environment, is the glossy one really different in terms of picture quality? Or is it better not to take chances?

I am very interested in this also. Have you tried to contact green sum? I asked him if he could ship through EMS (cheaper custom taxes to Portugal, it seems) but he asked 20 extra dollars, making the total 329 dollars.
