More features generally means a scaler with multiple inputs and really all i hear when people have said that is INPUT LAG tongue.gif .

I have a qnix and running awesome at 142Hz with the stock cable after i get a good cable could be 144hz(no higher is worth it as i want a multiple of 24).

A good aftermarket stand is expensive. I've tried a couple of monoprice stands and they're a joke. They don't support my Catleap very well and a I had to do some modding to get the stand acceptable.

I don't know about squaretrade but I've heard great things about Dell. I doubt that squaretrade has the ability to cross-ship you a new display. They probably are better than Asus though. Asus customer service is a joke.

Have you used a higher end display? You really shouldn't comment on whether its worth the price to other people particularly in for professional usage unless you have.

An aftermarket stand being expensive does not make my comment about it being a variable removed any less valid. Also i have not bought a single thing from monoprice yet that has been a "joke". if you had to do some modding then maybe there was a little more to be read in the description of the product(i know you likely did read it over but your comment about not using a professional monitor is even worse of a per-conception). Yes Asus support is trash from what i have experienced. I have worked with both square trade and Dell support and they are both pretty good in my book. Square trade seems a little too quick to try and refund you. Dell seems good all around when in comes to warranties and service(likely because they are HUGELY corporate used) however however good Dell is that does not mean other brands can be just as good or BETTER. I have seen WAY too many Dell fanboys lately. And YES i have used several professional displays ranging from apple to NEC. I have actually tried many of them recently side by side my Qnix and Crossover to compare quality(props to my friends in website and commercial design biggrin.gif )

Please try and not make assumptions about what people have and have not done asking "what high displays have you used or compared with?" would have been a MUCH better approach.

If they have long term issues, you'll probably hear it from me first.

You can't make blanket statements for everyone. Thats all that I'm saying. I'm not trying to argue with some kid picking apart every part of my post. I've added you to my ignore list. thumb.gif

I agree with this completely. For some that 200-300% extra may be worth it(especially corporate) in this instance it really comes down to this for the Qnix and other Korean brands:

PROS:

1. PRICE(may be worth the extra pending the cons)
2. No input lag from a scaler(no multiports)
3. overclock ability with a very high ceiling(not sure if there is a way to belittle this point)
4. OSD(not needed as you can calibrate from profiles, drivers etc)

CONS(or pros for name brand):

1. Warranty(this can be more or less nullified by square trade)
2. stand(if you have aftermarket this is not a variable at all)
3. Support(this different from warranty is the biggest point i see for buying name brand)
4. Build quality(not a consideration is you get a crossover or if you plan to de-bezel anyway)
5. OSD(see above for counter)
6. Factory calibrated(do it your self or buy/ find a buddy with a professional calibrater)

When it comes down to it get the monitor that works best for you. I am just going to say that actual picture(after adjustment) is very comparable and sometimes identical to the same panel in a name brand monitor. However there is definitely a lot of reasons to get a name brand. Just for me a lot of those reasons are a mute point.

And i did not pick anything a part in your post you were bluntly rude and unhelpful with that last one and i do not mind being on anyone who is unhelpfulls ignore list. Plus every comment i have made gives shades of grey thumb.gif

I am guessing that their durability long term is similar to any major brand monitor, at least in that the failure rate should be fairly low. You are probably just as likely to get a Dell or Asus panel that dies as a Crossover or Qnix or whatever; the issue then is how easy it is to deal with the various customer service divisions of those companies. Dell has very good service, while it seems like fair trade warranties mostly result in refunds if I am not mistaken.

Then you also have the interesting middle ground of the Monoprice and Auria (Microcenter) panels. Monoprice is a very good company and despite their low prices everything I have ever gotten from them has been of very high quality (including one of their 20 dollar VESA stands).


As far as whether name brand panels are "worth it:"
I would not have bought my U2713HM if it was full price; the features it has simply don't justify a $650 pricetag. However, for $550-$585 it becomes more competitive when you consider the stand, customer service, USB 3.0 hub, factory calibratrion, and satisfaction guarantee. I was considering getting either the Monoprice or Microcenter panels for ~$400, but the Dell went on sale for under $600 and it was too good of a deal to pass up. That isn't to say the Korean and other "generic" panels aren't perfectly fine; I would have gotten one of those but I didn't want to have to deal with the headache of getting dead pixels (and the premium for most perfect pixel panels makes them cost almost as much as the Dell anyway).
