NCIX is $100 cheaper than Amazon (MSRP)??? confused.gif

I'm thinking about ordering, but I've never purchased from NCIX before. Just curious as to why they're so much cheaper...
post #443 of 1323
I cancelled my order with Amazon and purchased mine at NCIX. Shipping out of NY. Should be the USA version.

NCIX is a very large company with a long history of good service, especially in Canada. It is often preferred over Amazon and Newegg in Canada, because they actually have real brick and mortar stores (small ones) here also.

Also Amazon doesn't really have it in stock in the US either. If you check the sub-sellers, you'll see what I mean. Amazon became so successful partly as a huge tax avoidance scheme. After governments started making them pay tax, they adopted sub-sellers, because you can avoid paying tax through market sellers. The Samsung monitor on Amazon.com is actually sold through Korean importers. Not sold directly from Amazon.com LLC.

In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if the warranty wasn't even valid if you purchased the monitor through Amazon, but I'd have to check to be sure. Who knows? (For example: all Sennheisser headphones. One of those i bought just died, and Sennheisser told me Amazon sub-sellers are not authorized, and no warranty coverage is available, contrary to Amazon's advertising.)

They have always given me amazing customer service, and I still buy from Amazon all the time. But as for pricing, it is hit and miss for me. So I'm not surprised about the pricing (-:

EDIT: Contacted Samsung customer service. They didn't know about the warranty coverage through Amazon. They gave me another phone number that they said was open 7 days a week, but when I called them they were closed. LG doesn't provide warranties in Canada for items purchased in the US anymore, which is a different issue. Acer apparantly still does, but you can't actually talk to anyone until after you have a serial number of a purchased product. Laughable service there.

Here is a screen grab of Amazon. Notice both companies only ship you the monitor from Korea. Amazon doesn't really have it in stock themselves, they are helping you buy from a Korean importer. That's why I've been searching so hard to find someone else selling the monitor.

Anyone on this forum know if there is any warranty buying through Amazon?

Went ahead and ordered. Can't wait to test it out.

Btw... I used the new customer coupon for an additional $10 off.

Greetings Gentlemen,

just a quick update. I've found theres an issue with games that run 30fps. There is horrendous sreen tear. You either have to uncap the fps to try and get over 30 or set the game to 60. Examples would be dark souls and simcity.

The Surround on 3x 24" actually feels much more manageable for me on the desk.

The ONLY downside to the monitor is MST - all 4K monitors @ 60Hz use MST. Someone claimed this Samsung TN panel is 60Hz "native" (ie SST). Using DP 1.2? lol wut?

Really have to see it to believe it. IF that's true, they just undercut Dell's own 28" TN "4K" panel that's priced the same but does only 30Hz @ 4K.

Running Surround with these IPS Dells @ 60Hz also means that the system is "seeing" 6 monitors (MST) instead of 3. LOL..

I was told SST 4K @ 60Hz native won't come around until 2015. For SST @ 60Hz @ 4K don't you HAVE to have DP 1.3 or HDMI 2.0?

Something seems fishy... and .. the eBay seller of this monitor can't spell properly ("panal"). Sounds legit! biggrin.gif

Yea MST has their quirks. For instance if you BSOD, you only see it on the left side, it was a bit offputting seeing a BSOD so squeezed in like that.

Also, they don't scale any screen at all, in Nvidia's case it simply plays 1080p at its actual pixel count in the center of the screen, not upscaled as every other monitor does, in SST.


I wonder if MST can ever scale, or that there's no point to it now that there's perfectly fine timing controllers that can do 4k 60Hz fine, and MST is merely a hack solution for first-gen 4K monitors.


But MST is still useful again, for the next 8K generation.... if GPUS will ever power that resolution.

The Asus 1440p is the only monitor that is natively 120Hz off the box.

For the Qnix/X-Stars you have to patch your video drivers to allow for the max limit of the DVI port (usually limited to only 250MHz instead of 500MHz). Running at 1440p 120Hz and messing with optimal CRU settings makes my DVI port run at 459.86MHz (monitor's spec is 450MHz).



Edit: In regards to this, the Asus ROG monitor is only going to be a TN-panel, while the Qnix/X-Star use PLS panels. So you do get the best of everything with the Qnix monitor with the exception of warranty.


Wait, if DVI can do 120hz 1440p, can the OCed DVI port can do 4K 60 hz?
