Same tech, different name because of trademarking, iirc

*PLZ Read/help/be informed*

Ok guys, i need your help/opinion on this. There's this seller on amazon.de that occasionally
pops up on the used section of the AsusPG279Q main page and sells them for 527 euros.

BUT! he asks to be contacted through e-mail first for further details and the offer keeps going
down after about 30 minutes every time.I have noticed every time a monitor pops up he's
under different seller name, different e-mail address.(similar shop name and info though)

I contacted him from two different emails and got these responses:

" I will explain you the transaction conditions for Asus PG279Q 68,6 cm (27 Zoll) Monitor
(HDMI, 4ms Reaktionszeit) schwarz

The item is brand new, never used, but i can't list it as a new product due to Amazon
policy, they don't allow me to list it as a new product. The item will comes with original
box and accessories and 1 year international warranty.
The total price is 527,00 €, including all shipping and insurance fees to Europe.

If you want to buy it, please send me your shipping address(phone number, your complete name,
street name and number, zip code and city) and I will contact Amazon stuff in order to
start the transaction with their services, you will have to complete the payment by them.

Dispatch will be by normal DP Services, which takes 4-6 days.
My return policy is full refund in 21 days.

For more information, please don't hesitate to contact me!

After you receive the package, they have 14 days inspection period and refund rights if the

Price:

I immediately send the required data , Amazon will contact you for order, details about
payment and shipping. in a maximum of 3-4 days you will receive the product.
I would appreciate a response from you very!
Yours sincerely"

Sooo.. umm.. does this sound fishy or is it just me ?

Special offer? AZ-garantie? "escrow bank account from amazon" what the hell?
(he also claims products are brand new when refurbs would be more believable)

I really don't understand why i have to give him my info through e-mail
while the whole thing could be done through the amazon website..

Obviously i haven't responded but i'm thinking about it, what if someone from a legit
amazon email contacts me after all? Is this a new scam thing?

Definitely a scam.

If you referring to exactly "IPS", yes only LG has that. But both the old(PLS) and the new(AHVA) PB278Q use "IPS" equivalent panel technology.

Yeah the price is ridiculous for a TN panel and so is the premium for the g-sync modules

So was anyone able to order one from amazon before it went out of stock today?

I don't think it was ever IN stock. It is just an out-of-stock pre-order listing.

I'm taking my chances in the lottery, knowing that it is likely I will lose and have to send it back.

Oh alright. I'm going to wait and see how this batch does, before I place my order.

Does anybody else find it odd that Acer themselves are releasing their model later than ASUS? AUO is their company after all. You would expect them to be the first in the market.

We haven't heard anything from Acer's side since the XB271 was unveiled at IFA, apart from the fact that it too would support a 165 Hz overclock. Hopefully the longer delay is due to time invested for better QC. But we all know that that probably won't happen.

Maybe they are keeping the better panels for themselves and selling the rejects to Asus wink.gif

Unfortunately better doesn't mean good.
