[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 939

post #9381 of 25887
So is it better to order these Qnix 27" Evolution II monitors from overclockmonitor.com or better to buy it on Ebay? Anyone that alredy purchased these monitors can give o ut some infos would be appreciated.

Also, yea I know a lot of the 30" monitors have "grainy" coating, but I think they have the newer versions available and it has less grainy anti glare coating on them. So besides the 120hz overclock, i dont see why these 30" ones are not as good as the 27". For the wide gamut color, you can always try to calibrated it.

I bought mine from bizaroo on amazon, came with no dead pixels and really fast shipping.

I have questions about VESA stand,

does all dell monitor stands are standard VESA 100 stand? I googled some pictures, but I have no experience with VESA stand, er.....hard for me to tell.

and my second question is, will a stand from 19" monitor strong enough to hold the monitor? I don't want it smash on my desk really:rolleyes:

thanks.

Okay I'm going to order the Glossy model from accessorieswhole on eBay.

My last question is, do you guys feel the squaretrade warranty is worth it for these? I mean, what exactly do they do for these monitors? Do I have to actually send it to them to have it fixed or do they just replace it or what. I've never used a 3rd party warranty service like that before.

Thanks

How much did you end up paying for the glossy from Accessorieswhole?

I purchased the warranty from square trade. One other person on here stated they had one of these monitors and had purchased the warranty through square trade and had an issue with the monitor. They contacted square trade and set up shipping the monitor to them, shipping was paid by them, they recieved it and could not repair it. Once they decided they couldnt repair it they issued a refund for the purchase price and the guy turned around and just bought another one. Once I purchased the plan they sent me a confirmation email and it stated all the rules, pretty much stating the same, its free shipping to them and if they cant fix it they refund you the money for a new monitor.

Awesome good information. I'm guess that warranty doesn't include dead or stuck pixels?

I see that accessorieswhole has a perfect pixel model that states "No Dead pixel, No Stuck pixel guaranteed!" whereas other "perfect pixel" models say 0-3 at most...but they do charge about $40-$50 more for that guarantee, if the guarantee is even a reality at all.

No i dont believe it covers stuck or dead pixels, whole rows of pixels I would say yes. It also doesnt cover cosmetic damage either. I went for the normal X-star on ebay from dreamseller. $279 shipped for the normal one, at 2560X1440 I cant see a couple little pixels being dead that big of a deal.
