You realize how vague that is?
I have a south Korean "crossover" that is 27'' 1440p no bad pixels, d-dvi only, no light bleed, realistic color reproduction for what it is. Paid 476 with tax. and it has height adjustment swivel, pivot. steel casing etc.
There's also the catleep.(however u spell it) didn't go with it, because of the cable management and the stand. otherwise its the same specs.
Then there was another one, which is the same specs, (can't remember the name...don't wanna look) but was alot blockier
Pricewise it was $(one I can't remember) < $ catleep <$crossover.
but that being said I love my crossover. Its great for bench work (keeping important data on screen) and searching through all the damn science journals.
And I use one at home, no ghosting while gaming, and its pretty damn bright =)
But to answer your "question" : Yes...Yes I do
Haha, you're giving the poor guy a hard time. I'm sure he meant asus and it was either autocorrected on his phone or in his head.
Pretty sure you're thinking about either the Monoprice or Microcenter ones. The Monoprice monitor is probably the cheapest on the monitor with one of their coupons. They actually have another model that's up for preorder now and supposedly has a grade A panel.
What's the chances of dead pixels on these? I imagine they were returned for a reason.
I imagine if these were actually defective, people would have returned them to Amazon as defective (and taken advantage of free return shipping) and Amazon would have returned them to the manufacturer instead of selling them back on Warehouse deals. It doesn't make sense for Amazon to sell products that are claimed to be defective since they are almost guaranteed a return.
I haven't bought much on Warehouse. Does the same return policy apply - i.e. free return shipping if defective?
recently a new dell 27 2713 went on sale for 505 before tax. and that comes with dell standard 3 yr warranty on ultrasharps...............much better.
plus zero dead pixel guaranteed, and generally much much MUCH x 12109381209382 better quality control than asus
While this particular Asus model does have QC issues it seems, how do you figure this of Asus in general? They seem to be racking up much higher reliability scores (across products) than Dell.
Guys for whatever the returns where I'm sure Amazon didn't check each one fully for it. OR the returner just didn't feel like giving the reason of a dead pixel so your just gambling now. + your losing your manufacture warranty etc.
Also a purchaser of a shimian here. Purchased the pixel perfect model (certain sellers have a better "pixel perfect" guarantee so read all the fine print) and then slapped a 3 year squaretrade warranty on it (think I paid 50 bucks for the warranty at the time with no % off coupon). It's been great so far, had it for about 8 months. No dead pixels or light bleed. Colors look great (granted I don't use it for anything professionally, just gaming, movies, and web surfing). Only negative is that the stand wasn't very stable. Purchase an aftermarket one from Monoprice and you'll be set.

Good deal on the Asus monitor, I would buy if I didn't just pick up a Crossover 2560x1600 monitor last week
hey iamn1ck how much did you pay the crossover for? was ot 30"
You don't want to try the 30' gamble on the Korean monitors. They're the most prone to dead pixels etc.
I'm another crossover 27q guy. One of the best risks I ever took. 410$, perfect pixel, runs like a champ. Inhuman shipping. I did the square trade as well.
The Asus is a bit gapped on the pixel pitch, but that's me being nitpicky. It's PLS which is cheaper to produce than IPS, and is basically Samsung's answer to the LG IPS panels. The quality difference is negligible to most.
