Umm no it very clearly says "Crossover" and "IPS" not "Qnix" and "PLS". Not sure how you thought otherwise. And no they won't overclock without an alternate PCB(overlord).

Looks like the same to me except the design lol.

Do any Ebay sellers do BLB perfect ones like they do perfect pixel ones?

I seriously doubt any of them actually open it up and look at anything. I think they just sell and hope you don't return it. There's no real good way to measure BLB and IPS/PLS monitors are prone to it so you'll probably never see that with the ebay sellers. The big name retailers will accept BLB returns but even they send them out like that and hope you don't return it. I have many devices with IPS displays and almost all have some sort of BLB. I've only returned two for severity issues, one monitor and one laptop.

There's just a bunch of issues lately with youtube and different isps having buffer problems. I can get 720p to work on youtube ~70% of the time. 1080p is more like 50/50.

This might help with your streaming problems, it lets you preload the whole video

I doubt I'd care about dead pixels on a 1440p monitor, but its the uncertainty around BLB and lack of ability to return it thats stopping me getting one of these. I've lived so long with 120Hz that its another thing I couldn't do without, again overclocking on these isn't a guarantee, but I suppose overclocking never is.

Has anyone ever had the seller actually accept a return on one of these? Do people get ones with bad colour, backlight or contrast uniformity on them? Worst thing about my last monitor was how crap the backlight was.

I have not seen any Korean sellers that offer a BLB protection other than (obviously excessive to a point where its a defect) - as BLB is considered normal to IPS/PLS panels.

Its has a way bigger grey area. Mine was really really undeniably bad, and they tried to say it was normal - after a few days theyre saying i can get a partial refund, which im ok with since i opened it up and fixed it - but this might not have been the best answer to those not willing to actually tear it apart.

The prices ive seen are either like $319 but $20 shipping, or $345 and free shipping. Would have been ace to get one back when they were like $270

I had uniformity problems(small dark spot) and got mine returned. The seller is sending me a new one after their holiday. I also had a dead pixel which I had to struggle to even find, let alone care about. BLB was average when compared to other monitors. The main thing about these is you can easily open them up and fix the bleed. Some of these new monitors don't have screws, so taking them apart is a real chore. Overall I was happy except for the dark spot. Oh yeah, and the glass fell off mine so don't get the tempered glass. It's held on by a thin piece of tape and they don't even clean the dust before putting it on! For $280, it was a no brainer purchase. If I had to pay mid-$300, I think I would look to spend the extra $200 for the Tempest monitors. At least they test the OC before it ships and I hear their QC is good. Still, if money is an issue, these monitors are a steal.

How good was the refund?
