Its a small inconvienience as the colours are way off with the default profile, which the one I use fixes, but its annoying to have to change it to the profile every boot up.

Use http://goebish.free.fr/cpk/ and change the settings so it starts when you log in. I do, it also has the bonus of forcing your colour profile in games.

Google and download monitor calibration wizard or mcw. Once you make sure your ICC profile is active open mcw, give that profile a name and save it, then load it in mcw, tick the force persistent profile and it will never change again.

Yes but all the arguments I keep reading are the same tired phrases. Your argument can be used against you as well.
This is a simple matter of facts. Were you there when they shipped my monitor? Did they test it or not? I dont know...I dont act like I know what others do and dont do...I do not have a crystal ball like many of you here.
Of course for me $10 was hardly a pain to pay to have leverage if I needed it. So its pointless to debate something when some people already went to each vendor and exposed them for lying about testing the monitors. I thank you for spending all that money visiting all those vendors to expose this scam. You guys rock!

End of this topic for me....btw, not sure why people is paying $400 for PP when some vendors sell it for $319..oh well...

Are you guys in the US getting charged duty and tax when brought over the border? I live close the the Buffalo border and just wondering if I should just have it shipped to a Kinek point in the US and go pick it up.


Fedex just told me if shipping from SK to Canada for computer equipment is no duty but 15% tax on the value.

While waiting for the above reply i opened the monitor to see if i could clean it. Sadly, once i got down to the actual panel and opened it turned out to be more than dirt. No idea what, but i couldn't get the speck off by gently cleaning it with some cotton dipped in isopropylacohol.
I put it back together and it turned out it actually wasn't in vain. The stain is still there, but ALOT smaller. If i don't actively search for it i can't find it. I bet it'll still annoy me from time to time, but overall i can live with it in its current state.

This leads me to the conclussion that I'd rather live with this tiny flaw, rather than the hassle of sending back, ordering from someone else and praying the same thing doesn't happen. So i'll take the $100 refund and get a still very nice monitor for cheaper than i expected (and it was cheap to begin with).

Big thanks for all the discussions, pictures, how-to's etc of how to dismantle the monitor. Couldn't have done it without you!


I just get the exact same email for an IPS monitor I bought from him. I think he doesn't realize that if an item isn't as described he is liable for the return shipping not the customer.

Left the LCD repar v2.0 program running for 6 hours, no success. Seems my monitor is just faulty or something.

That is weird since this is worse than having more than 5 pixels in one place.. I'd take the hundred as well, I'd hate to send it back and wait again for another screen that might be even worse.

Thanks for the update! Mine will be shipped tomorrow biggrin.gif

Because I contacted overclockmonitor.com and they don't have a "perfect" Pixel Perfect policy, unlike accessorieswhole's policy. No wonder his price is the highest.

Depends on your province. You are liable for the full sales tax in your province on the value of the item.
