Well, my new monitor arrived. I ordered a Qnix from the seller Esmstart, for $295. The next lowest for the Qnix was dream-seller at $368. It shipped on Wednesday, and arrived on Saturday in Portland. Very good time.
The picture is perfect. No dead pixels to be found anywhere, and minimal backlight bleed. I am playing SWTOR on it as I type this mini review.
It is well constructed, and fairly heavy. The stand attaches to the VESA mount. It has both tilt and swivel. It is pretty stiff doing either of those things, but once set stays in place. The monitor base is heavy, as my toe found out..... There is very little wobble, and the monitor sits straight. No leans either way.
The box included an adapter/transformer for the Korean power cable that works just fine. I am using the included dual link DVI cable, and that works fine as well. It's a bit on the short side, but good enough for my uses.
The entire extent of my setup was to unbox everything, snap the stand into place, plug it in and turn it on. That's it. Works flawlessly.
I really couldn't be happier with this monitor. It's the best computer component purchase I have made in a very long time.
