Maybe im just ocd but I couldn't stop looking at it .

Haha I just noticed that the monitor stand in that pic isn't even level. that thing is so bad it moves when you type.


biggrin.gif That is a bit shocking actually. I can't say the silver bezel would bother all that much although obviously I haven't seen it in person. I'm someone who often plays games in the dark though which may have contributed to my less than stellar eyesight.

I'll need to start looking for an alternate stand actually since I've heard nothing but bad things about the stock ones. Is the supplied stand on the Qnix just as bad?

it is 100% the exact same stand! I bought this

http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_id=109&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=5402&seq=1&format=2

if anyone wants to buy anything from monoprice let me know and I can email you a $5 off coupon and I get a 10$ credit for referring people. They generally have very good products for resonable prices. Honesty: the shipping speed has sucked a little bit in my opinion.

Will definitely need to look into that then. Do most of the major sellers provide a dual-dvi cable btw or do you usually need to buy one separately? I know my video card supports it but I can't remember if there was one in the box since I've only ever used it connected to my TV via HDMI.

I edited my post with info on the stand I bought and I can get you 5$ off if you buy from monoprice.

They come with a wire which works fine. I replaced it with a wire that atleast one dude on amazon claimed worked better even than the supplied/mono price wires but it didn't help my max overclock at all.

Monoprice would be fine but I'm in the UK and I'm not sure how they are re: international shipping.

ahh, yeah I have no idea on that one.

edit: found this pretty quick.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=me%3DA1EPTO47FZ4KN6&field-keywords=vesa

works out really well if you have amazon prime i'd imagine free shipping.

monoprice Uk store on amazon.com uk.

I don't know if the 5$ off coupon would still work or not though.

I just realized I could have gotten the same stand from mono price through amazon in the US and the price would have been about the same but it would have come in 2-3 business days. I think it took them a week. rolleyes.gif

wow just realized all the rep you guys have given, thanks lol!

That's awesome, thanks. smile.gif

It's free delivery on that for everyone in the UK btw. Everything above £10 gets free delivery here and they offer free shipping on music/games/movies regardless of price. You can even use £0.50 CD's as filler items to get other items delivered for free so it's not all bad here in the old country. smile.gif

I'm not looking to mount it to anything so I'll probably just go for this one I think.

that one says 10-23 inches but I also think it might be the one in the OP ad the weight it says is more than enough for these monitors, so should work fine.

if you want to pm me your email or some throw away email if you don't want advertisements from them (I use an email for all my online shopping / mailing lists etc) I can send out that coupon and see if it works. If not no biggie.

I am looking to get a good stand for my QNIX. has anybody had anything shipped from Monoprice to Europe?
Delivery costs to Europe on their website are overwhelming...

Otherwise, any other suggestion? A different brancd maybe?

Thanks a lot
