so.... don't get a Qnix? biggrin.gif

I wanted to get a Yamakasi, they seem to be a little better quality.

And for reference, here is my HP 2711x. Nothing exceptional, very normal monitor with a normal amount of backlight bleed.

all these pictures were taken with my phone and using the same settings. these were completely unbiased pictures, i didnt try and cherry pick or use weird angles to make the qnix seem worse. there really is just a huge difference in the amount of bleed.

Let us know how the return process goes. I also ordered from HuluStar and I hope I dont have those issues, but if I do, knowing that I can return will be nice.

I emailed him yesterday. Still haven't heard back, but its the weekend so he may be off. I'll post what he says and how the process goes for me. I purchased a SquareTrade warranty with it as well so im not sure how that will work. Could i still use it on my replacement, or do i need to cancel and re-order somehow? It might even be smarter for me to cancel and buy again with the promo price.

The Squaretrade promo doesn't work on eBay items. From their facebook page:

"Q) What can I use this coupon for?
A) Coupons can only be used on protection plans purchased at SquareTrade.com. Unfortunately, coupon codes cannot be used on eBay or Kindle Products. We also cannot combine this with any other offer, and only one coupon per purchase."

Also, I'm interested to see if anyone has tried to claim their SquareTrade warranty on these monitors. I couldnt find any accounts of such by searching. I wonder if they attempt to repair these monitors or if they will replace them (perhaps with US equivalents?)

It does work. You put in the Ebay item number, then put in the coupon.

Ok awesome. I didn't attempt to do it, I was going solely off what their website said.
Has anyone ever filed a claim for an eBay monitor? Any word on how it went?

If you do a search, someone did on one of the other threads. Squaretrade honored the warranty. YMMV as always though, depending on the issue.

I suppose I'll decide when I mine tongue.gif Hopefully no horrible backlight issues.

Also, is it just me, or did these 1440p monitors get more expensive? Finding old links that have prices around ~$300, but when I click them, it's like $50 higher than what people said it was.

Alright I got mine and found that it has 0 dead pixels however it had a terrible light bleed in the bottom right corner (like my other korean monitors). I tried to use my finger and massaged the area and pushed it and eventually got the light bleed to go away however it causes that same area to be darker than normal. I can use my 2 finger and push on it to make it more uniform.... I knew even if I return this monitor the next one I get would probably have the same light bleed or possible more dead pixels.

SOLUTION TO FIX BOTTOM RIGHT LIGHT BLEED
After a week I couldn't stand it anymore so I decided to open the thing up to fix it. The monitor indeed is a PLS monitor : http://www.panelook.com/LTM270DL02_SAMSUNG_27.0_LCM_overview_12403.html
All I did was made sure that the panel sit flush against the frame and added black electrical tape at the bottom right on top of the glass piece around the LED array to make sure there's no light leak. Now my monitor is perfect granted i caused 1 dead pixel in the process.

Light bleed gone but still has some annoying dark region

Dark pixels lessen if I push against it

Time to open it up and give it a real fix



No more light bleed or dark region!
