[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 739

post #7381 of 25887
So the first QNX I got from greensum was DOA. (s)he wanted to blame it on DHL. The second one I got is from IPSLEDMonitors doesn't have any dead pixels as far as I can see. So I can't recommend greensum, but it's all a crapshoot and they're all probably the same when it comes to trying to not pay for return shipping.

Previously I would have highly recommended IPSLEDMonitors even if they cost a bit more because of their customer service. The one I got from them was packed much, much better than the one from greensum, so just from that aspect I would expect less DOAs from IPSLED. But the last email I sent them about the fedex situation went unanswered, so i'm thinking about testing the waters with another seller for my second one.

He told me he would ship after a Korean Holiday. I had to keep asking him because 2 weeks had gone by. He just replied that he doesn't have any and asked if I wanted a QNIZ AGAIN. After I said no, he said he would give me a Glossy X-Star for $30 extra because it had HDMI (which I don't need). I'm just upset cause this whole time he knew he didn't have any and kept wasting my time and trying to push the QNIX.

Does anyone know of any sellers that have the X-Star (glossy) in stock?

I already have an X-star so that's why I don't want a QNIX. If there is no other choice but to get a QNIX, then I will have to debezel them so they match.

Wow thats pretty OCD smile.gif The only difference between the 2 that i know of is the logo, easy fix would be to sand and paint over the bezel (unless you really like glossy bezels). But with 2 27" panels - i wouldve personally debezelled them anyways.

What was the fedex situation? Also, did you see any clouding or other issues when overclocked? I'm thinking about buying from ipsled mainly because of the peace of mind of the return policy.

Yea, I guess I'm OCD smile.gif

I want to make sure my monitors match.

It appears that everyone is running out of X-stars (glossy).

Does anyone know of any sellers in California that sell these?

Just unwrapped my QX2710 from AccesoriesWhole. I found no dead pixels after a quick background test. Back light is even except some light bleed at the lower right part of the panel. Let's see what OC I get out of this unit. Will post the results shortly smile.gif

Seems like the sellers of these screens are either running out or shipping returned monitors.
Also looks like a lot of people are abusing www.ipsledmonitors.com's return policy.

People here are saying that some people are abusing the return policy. Here is the thing, they don't refund the shipping, which is $20. So I wouldn't say people are returning it for reasons that are trivia. If I can live with the backlight bleeding, I would. Because otherwise I return the monitor and I still lost $20.

I still don't understand why ipsledmonitors charges a "shipping cost" when all the sellers ship from S. Korea for free. I guess that's part of their profit.

The "shipping cost" isn't really a shipping cost. It's really about having your reseller here in the states and having good customer support, so you pay $60 extra. I had really good emails with Kyle at ipsled. For example, after my DOA from greensum, and getting my second monitor, my video card still wasn't driving the monitor propertly. He didn't really solve the problem for me, but he was good at responding to me and getting me to come up with new ideas.

The packaging that whoever in Korea is doing for ipsled was far superior to the packaging I received from greensum. Greensum's qnix had bubble wrap on the outside, but just the cardboard stuff and some paper in the inside, where ipsled's packaging was the cardboard box was roughed up from the trip from Korea, but the inside was so tight that I had to have my son's babysitter hold the box while I removed it from the box. It was that tight.

At the end of the day, it's a crap shoot anyway. My first one from greensum was DOA, and I had to eventually to do a chargeback on the credit card before (s)he would pay for the shipping costs.

wow, some really naive people in this thread.

As someone who worked in retail, i can say some customers will take advantage of anything. I actually worked at best buy and the day after the super bowl there was a line of people with returning TVs they "rented" from us.

look at REI/Costco people will return things for any reason, they are now changing their policy. even if they lose a small amount to them it is worth it for the time. it's no wonder grade A panels are not widely available here like they are in korea.

also, i'm pretty sure it's not free to ship things from korea? ya think maybe that is built in their cost? thumb.gif
