If you want hassle free warranty service, the Dell is the way to go, plus an A+ panel that Dell will most likely replace for any reason if you're unhappy

Of course, if you can live with the roulette chances with any of the off-brand displays...

 

U2713HM is under £500 from Amazon http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-Ultrasharp-U2713HM-Widescreen-Monitor/dp/B008YFEFWM, £509 from Dell direct (which I'd recommend doing) http://www1.euro.dell.com/content/products/featuresdetails.aspx/dell-u2713hm?c=uk&l=en&cs=ukbsdt1

I'm in UK, if you care that much just get a pixel perfect that guarantees max 1 dead pixel, not in center, no bright/stuck ones. I think BigClothCraft had those.

I bought mine from green-sum, his perfect pixel policy doesn't say anything about dead pixels. I pushed (mentioning other sellers being better value, etc.) and he said if I buy from him they would check the monitor had max 1 dead pixel, not near center, and minimal backlight bleed. I got one with minor bleed and perfect pixels and OCs to 120Hz biggrin.gif

Great value for money IMO, but otherwise Dell U2713HM is I think the best cheap one at ~£400. I'm not too fussed about 120Hz, but the semi-matte coating is a must.

Edit: and I haven't heard anyone complain about flickering. But if you are sensitive to PWM avoid these, but mines at low (30% ish) brightness and it isn't visible.

The Qnix is a very good deal and the amazon reviews are crap(knowing this from following a 300+ page thread) but from the OP and his responses you care more about piece of mind than performance. With this being said i also recommend a Dell monitor + extended warratny + bubble wrap during use LMAO J/K biggrin.gif

The 2710 is starting to look appealing. Im thinking of buying a monitor when BF4/amd 9970 comes out, I may hold off buying one of these until then. Im guessing they will still be available...

Im just hoping I dont get a bad one, i.e faulty or whatever with it being sent across the world. At £200 shipped im guessing its gonna cost around £250 after customs get thier hands on it.

I got hit with a £50 bill, £44 VAT + £6 "handling ripoff fee" bringing total cost to £270.50

I heard of someone in UK who asked for "mark as gift" and to mark price at £32 or £36 (can't remember, whatever the cutoff is) and was hit with a single digit bill, but that'll depend on ethics/how much you are willing to risk - you probably won't be reimbursed if shipping loses/damages it.

I'd recommend ebay because if you get a bad one you can file a claim with ebay or paypal. The security is nice for the investment.

Looks like it is a third party seller in Korea... so the RMA is NOT through NewEgg...

The power brick on my X-Star is perfectly fine. The users complaining about it on amazon are likely using those flakey bundled international adapter plugs instead of just using their own c14 plugs.

Considering anyone at all buying one of these panels is buying them online, and thus already owns at least 2 of these plugs, I don't see how it is a problem to just be smart and use one that natively fits your sockets.
