They look much worse in person.

So far Dream Seller has offered to refund my purchase, provided I pay to ship the monitor back. The gave me the details on what I needed to do, Fedex estimated the shipping to be around $300. Yep, more than I even paid for the monitor. I'm hoping there's something Dream Seller can do to get the shipping price down. Otherwise I'm not sure what I'm going to do, currently considering getting a square trade insurance policy and claiming it down the road. But who knows if that'll work since I did not get the perfect pixel model. What would you guys do in my situation?

The parts of the monitor that work do look great, however the parts that do not look pretty awful. I really badly want a replacement monitor, same type and brand. I think I just got a dud.

In your situation, I would talk with dream-seller and see what he's willing to do..
And honestly if it costs you more than a couple of bucks out of pocket, maybe bypass him and file a claim through eBay/PayPal, because that's obviously a defective item

This is why I shop at Amazon. The seller I bought my Crossover 27Q from printed a prepaid return label that cost me ZIP. Nada. Nothing. I'm assuming that this isn't always the case. However, if you complain to Amazon enough, they will more than likely eat the cost of shipping after talking to the seller for you. I try to stay away from ebay as much as humanly possible. Others have had great experiences, but I don't take chances with hundreds of dollars. That's just me, though.

Agreed

I don't think anybody knows whether it's really that safe or not. The monitors are still so new we haven't gotten the chance to see what the long term results may be! That being said, it's just too good for me to pass it up; it's 120hz all the way for this guy. biggrin.gif

I'm with wrigleyvillain on this one. I really can't see how anybody could ever be so silly as to go through dream-seller after looking through even the last half a dozen pages of this thread.
The risk was so great with these monitors that I spent a full 2 weeks doing my homework on the deal, and it only took about a day for me to realize that dream-seller has carved his name as the absolute worst person to by one of these panels from on ebay.
Go with reputable guys like greensum or accessorieswhole. You will have to pay a couple of dollars more than what DS (should be BS) is charging, but when your talking about something in the $300 price range I'd rather spend a few extra and feel more secure.

Please don't go with dream-seller.

I'm guessing this is a bad time to mention that "dream-seller" is selling the Matte X-Star for $269 again. tongue.gif

Hi,

Bigclothcraft have some problems supplying Qnix Glossy. So they offered me X-Star glossy. Im going to debezel my 2 qnix so i was wondering if the insides of x-star are the same so it does not seem different from my 2 debezeled qnix? Or Should i wait for the Qnix...
post #6876 of 25887
Not sure about the bezel. But it seems many sellers are having stock problems with glossy Qnix monitors (dream-seller & accessorieswhole included). You can try going to green-sum, they said they have glossy monitors in stock. Not sure why they are the only only store with it available. Seems a little sketchy to me, but don't let my judgement affect yours.

Here's the link:

I agree with that. I find that it takes a lot of reading to get to know credible sellers. If you read even the warranty claim of Dream-Seller, it's very bad business to ask customers to pay shipping back to Korea, if the monitor cost USD100 maybe can consider. Because shipping alone could cost half or more than the monitor price itself if you don't have any corporate account.

Guys this is a very important question if someone could answer me please send me a pm because I'm on a mobile device.

long story short I debezled and epoxyd the PCB box to the back of the panel. Worried about the epoxy application I was stupid enough to not verify the length of the cables. The harness that connects to the bottom corner is short an inch now. Is it ok for me to splice the wire and extend it with similar gauge wiring to extend the cable by a couple of inches. I have done some soldering before but never for anything monitor related.

as far as I can tell it should work but I could really use a pat on the back and some confirmation. Thank you

Hi all,

I am so excited wheee.gif, Purchased "QNIX Tempered Glass QX2710 LED Evolution ll 27" 2560x1440 SAMSUNG PLS PC Monitor" from accessorieswhole.

Upgrading from MATTE 19" (1280x1024) to Tempered glass 27" (2560x1440) biggrin.gif I hope I am not going to have a heart attack from the shock.

Shipped two days ago. Tracking shows it reached Mumbai this morning, so maybe it will get here in my country (Oman) today.

Thank you all for reading my post about Dream Seller.

I don't entirely blame them, any other eBay seller in the US would expect you to pay return shipping as well. I knew I was taking a gamble, I had no idea it would cost more than the monitor to ship it back however. I did read many pages about Dream Seller here, searching the forums first. Most were complaints of shipping- which I didn't mind because they have had monsoons on that side of the world. There are many good things said about then here and on other forums. Dream Seller also has many many many positive feedback ratings on just this exact monitor, I feel like I got a dud rather than completely screwed over. I shouldn't have taken a risk on something that has a high likely hood of being defective.

Currently I'm hoping he can cut me a deal and I can just use this monitor for parts or experimentation or something.

I have decided to try a new seller, http://www.ipsledmonitors.com/ , we shall see if their service is better. The total ended up being $60 but they claim replacing defective monitors will be very easy with them. I will let you guys know what my experience is like with them.
