No, nothing "wrong"...but only professionals who need the increased color space really can benefit from such.

I was going to order the monitor from ebay but offer from "Green-Sum" just ended yesterday...he has a good seller score and was the cheapest matte version option ($309 with shipping). Not only that, he said he would ship me by EMS (I will pay less custom taxes here in Portugal) and with a lower mark value so it´s a real bummer. Anyone can point me to a good alternative to this offer or should I just wait because he will put another offer on ebay?

Cheers

Just got my qnix matte from excellent castle. No dead pixels or backlight bleed. Oc'd to 103 and sitting happy. No duties were due, as the US and s. Korea have a trade agreement. No one in the US should be paying customs on these.

Well I can tell you that Hulustar is very responsive so you could ask him about EMS and he asks you how much to declare it as right off the bat. And as it still says less than 100 sold I am pretty sure his "promo" still active which is essentially Pixel Perfect for $317 (0-2 allowed, most are 5).

And seems the vast majority of his have had no dead pixels as yet incl. mine (that's not to insinuate other sellers have worse ones ).

Thanks but his offer is 38 bucks more expensive than the onde I talked about, I was hopping to get a similar price wink.gif

EDIT: Also, I just noticed that he dosent allow the customer to choose the shipping company, it´s them that choose it. frown.gif

I Contacted Green-Sum and he said that i had to order a different one in order to get a Matte display, which was 40$ more expensive.

I'm also considering the excellentcastle. And please keep me updated smile.gif also about how taxes, customs and stuff goes.

If marked with the "return from repair" would it possibly slip through? I've also heard some marking with gifts or something like that, not sure if it worked tho...

The one you "talked about" was $309, as far as I can tell. You are seeing one for only $279?

It was 309 but he said he would charge 20 bucks to ship by EMS to Portugal

Just to let you guys know, yesterday I ordered a QNIX from dream-seller and sent him an e-mail saying that I would like to have the monitor shipped with Fedex (I have seen a guy here who didn't have to pay taxes with Fedex) and he told me that he can't undervalue the parcel with Fedex, but he could do so if he sent it via EMS, but shipping via EMS would be $25 more expensive. In the end I've to decided to try my luck with Fedex and not undervaluing the parcel, rather than paying more for the shipping. Let's see if I'm lucky.
