[Official] Wasabi Mango UHD550 Owners Club - Page 35

post #341 of 416


After moving the taskbar to the bottom of the screen, I found another panel defect, (it's amazing what you uncover just by changing colors). A portion of the upper left corner of the screen is black, roughly 20-25 pixels. I can't tell if it's a cluster of dead pixels, or it's an extension of the black border. If you peer behind the border, you'll see the pixels are actually lit, discolored yellow discoloration that's found on the bottom of the panel.

Regardless of the cause, this panel is going back to S. Korea.

Interesting thanks for the update. That stinks you received a defective panel. Unfortunately you never know if you are receiving an A- or B+ panel with any Korean monitor.

Do you plan on having it replaced?

Well, let's evaluate this fairly and objectively. Two issues, doesn't constitute as "a lot". Also, the issue that Aerostah is experiencing is not a disaster or the sellers fault. Everyone is warned in the postings that these are not A+ panels, which is why LG didn't use them (could be a small backlight bleed, defective pixel, miscolor, etc). Most, and I will say, most of the time the panel issues are very unnoticeable or tolerable (i.e. a defective pixel or slight backlight bleed). It's even stated in the auction that there could be backlight bleed and it's not grounds for returns. That is the chance you take when you buy any Korean monitor. Asrostah's issue is different and is probably experience a patch of dead pixels which is over the allotted amount and the seller with refund or exchange the monitor.

Only one of these problems has to do with the panel itself. The other is a ups problem, which has more to do with bad practices shipping large monitors.

You ordered the "perfect pixel" version so you should ship it back.

RJA1 did you get your 3rd monitor yet? I also ordered one that got damaged by UPS and AW told me that they don't have any more in stock. They said they only have a new model UHD550SE with a cheaper panel now. I was going to order a UHD490 instead but they didn't want to ship another one until they figure out a better way to pack them since UPS keeps damaging the monitors.

If that UHD550SE is confirmed, I could then consider getting a UHD490.

I'm just annoyed that 490 are around -100$ compared to 550. I'ld prefer to throw an extra 100$ and get +6" guiltysmiley.gif

So the 550SE is cheaper as in lower quality or less expensive??
post #348 of 416
I take it as lower quality, but a confirmation would be nice indeed wink.gif
post #349 of 416
I didn't ask about the SE price because I'm not interested in a lower quality panel. I assume it either is not 10 bit, not 4:4:4, and/or RGBW. Currrent price difference between the UHD550 and UHD490 is about $180.00, but the only vendor currently offering the UHD550 is gnestore and I am not sure I would trust them based on some reviews I've read.
post #350 of 416
i got my monitor from gnestore

they used dhl

everything was fine, i just had to pay a ****ton of fees and taxes to bring it into Australia so ended up costing me $1350AUD all up which is still a bargain considering a 32" widescreen 4k panel is over $1100aud here

one thing i gotta say Aerostah, from your pictures alone, i feel that you are sitting way too close for this monitor size

mine is about 1.5x the distance from where your keyboard is and thats still too close.

you need a new desk smile.gif
