Yup mine shows up as the same thing. I finally got tracking info for mine and it looks like it actually shipped over the weekend. Should arrive today or tomorrow and I'll update after I've tested it. I'm still concerned that they've removed the standard 1 year warranty completely from their site and only now show a $50 3 year warranty.

Many people have ordered from him and received monitors with 0 dead and stuck pixels and good BLB. I only remember reading one that didn't and they refunded him the price difference / offered to replace in some way (they tried to go for the first).

So I don't see why one wouldn't order from them. If they get a PP panel, that's that, if not, they refund the price difference. And more often than not they seem to be turning out to be actually PP.

I don't understand from the sample size we have how we can determine if PP is a scam if we haven't collected statistics for each seller and made sure everyone who is looking for stuck and dead pixels is actually finding them / knows the difference. It's too messed up to know this or that.

I honestly think that accessorieswhole could be the one exception to this rule on the PP warranty. Accessorieswhole in the past has had great communication with several people who have bought from them. I myself have had good experiences. You have a good point about statistics but overall if something says "perfect pixel" but is in no way credible to that name(meaning the fact that it is not perfect and only covers dead not stuck, bright, dark, etc) this means by definition it is false advertising in regards to terminology. You could easily say in small print you exclude these circumstances but for the average user who is not going to look into this very deeply PP should be PP. This is why if you really want to try PP i always recommend contacting sellers and question what their "version" of the word "perfect" means. My reasons for calling it a scam is when they alter or make conditions to the word "perfect".

Bottom line is yes PP can still be summarized as a scam overall. Accessorieswhole and possibly other sellers could be exceptions to this general "consensus" (sense no-one has compiled all the data to essentially prove it as you pointed out). I would recommend everyone who seriously considers PP do their research here and with that individual seller.

Also keep in mind this is my opinion of what constitutes a scam. In my mind(and many others i would also assume) perfect should equal perfect(or comparable to name brand general quality) which is what makes this a scam as it is willing-fully mis-leading. You do see this type of mis-information with a hint of truth everywhere, for example i would also consider the marketing of TVs that only do frame interpolation as 120hz/240hz technically or partially a scam with the way it is worded. Where it simply says 120hz rather than saying 60hz filtered to 120hz. This is really close to the same as saying "Perfect" but this and this and this don't count. Mis-information is mis-information period. If these sellers sold this as "Dead pixel free" or "all pixels will at least turn on" then sure that would be fine as it in no way guarantees perfect functionality.

So bottom line here is saying perfect but in small print(which is not even present in most of these ebay sellers posts) saying but being broken in these SEVERAL ways don't count is SCAM material and should be reported as such. If you or anyone else thinks mis-representation is not scam material then we are going to have to agree to dis-agree.

Overall anytime you pay extra for a warranty i would do a bit extra research on what you just did(or did not in this case) buy. And accessorieswhole i will admit could be and has shown to be on several occasions a exception to this.

While Accessorieswhole has been a get communicator in my experience, my non-pp QXIX came with *very* bad BLB - and it was pretty obvious as soon i turned it on. I dont think any QA wouldve thought that was acceptable in the most loosest sense of the word.

They say they open every box for inspection, but they did not do that with mine - if they did, then their definition of acceptable is very different than what i thought. But i was able to fix the BLB, and they offered a $40 refund which was better than nothing.

Also to current QX2710 owners, do any of you have to unplug your monitor power every time you use it? I heard its not a good idea to put the monitor into standbye mode when not using it?

I leave it plugged in. But I do switch of the surge protector.biggrin.gif

You know I will never understand that. Its supposed to be some economy shipping yet it got to my house in 2 days while UPS you will have to pay a lot for that extra speed and its just within the USA. lol

Where did you hear that it is bad for the monitor?

With my x-star I just shut down the PC, I had used some black tape to cover the blinking led. I feel pressing the power button will wear it out over time.. whats the difference between "off" red light and "standby" blinking light? I would think unplugging it every time cant be good for it either right?
post #7538 of 25893
I think I am going to contact ipsledmonitors.com and see about exchanging/refunding my monitor. I hate to do it, because I like it, but I am finding it hard to get over the fact that it cant overclock. I am just worried about what happens, if I get a replacement from them that is worse than what I have now. I have no recourse other than selling here or wherever at a loss to try a third time. hmmmmm
post #7539 of 25893
Uh last I heard you can't a replacement at all due to tight stock. Maybe no longer the case...

if it is pixel perfect, don't waste it. I might be interested in taking it off your hands.
