New 24v 5a power brick just came in. Monitor still won't turn on. Just contacted ta_planet to ask him what my options are... guess I am screwed. He already offered me a $25.00 partial refund since I had to buy another power brick. Knew I should have stuck with a regular USA store... damnit. :(
Would wait to hear back from ta_planet before reacting in such a way. I've seen these sellers will work with customers. A negative EBay rep can actually hurt their business pretty significantly when there are so many sellers competing for the exact same market. So just wait for a response, I've seen ta-planet offer to pay return shipping on a monitor before. Also you may have an issue with the power cable on the inside having a slight issue, I seem to remember some people having this problem and mended it themselves.

"all these"
please count them.

I shoved the power plug in the wrong way (The notch wasn't helping that much) and after a big pop and a great burning smell I thought my screen was done fore.

I waited a few minutes, pushed the plug in the right way and everything is working a-okay. for me the catleap is as tough as can be.

It'll get here 2-3 days after you place the order. They ship express.

Already left him positive feedback. He just messaged me, made me give him $25.00 to send me another power brick since he gave me a partial refund of $25.00 for the power brick not working. Now I just have to hope that is indeed the only issue and my monitor will work ok. Lame I had to give him the $25 back though, I thought with such a high feedback he would have been decent to work with. Oh, well. I am done with PC stuff for awhile, this shit is to stressful. Consoles have one advantage, you plug them in and play games, that is all. No tweaking, no modifying, no worrying, just gaming. This is definitely my last PC. PS4 comes out I am going back to consoles.

If you want no worries, why the hell are you buying a monitor from Korea that is cheap because the panel is not good enough for Dell Apple etc

Why did you think you could keap the 25$? Either you take it n buy another brick or you dont and wait for him to send a new one

Go read a Dell or HP service forum. You'll never buy another monitor again.

He had 99.97% positive feedback, and no one else had an issue with the 1440p they bought from him. Logic would say I would be ok in buying from him, but logic sometimes fails. :ohwell:

LOL. Point taken. Though, it's pretty clear that there is no service once you purchase these.

2 year MC warranty, so far its picture perfect.

It's $399 but I opted for the extra $50 for the special warranty so im 100% covered for the next 2 years no questions asked. So all together $470ish after Tax. Just got done with Left 4 Dead 2 and 2 rounds of BF3 and I must say some of the best hard earned Dough I ever spent this thing is amazing.

for anyone near a Microcenter.

Yeah, I wished I lived near a Microcenter. 1440p is very underrated. People shrug it off, I just tell them don't judge until you see gaming on it for yourself. I love 1440p, just ordered me a 270 Lite from Green_Sum since ta_planet sent me a junk one. So I spent more then you and still have no warranty, but I am sure this one from green_sum will last me.

Yea dude I just had to take the leap, I'm lucky to live close to a Microcenter otherwise I would have waited till 2013 till they got more popular in the US for retailers to carry them. The leap payed off though it is like a totally different gaming/PC experience. I am one happy camper :)

Got mine. Crossover white from AW. Pixel perfect and only slight color unevenness. A little bubbling on the paint but I don't want to risk sending it back and getting a bad panel.

If anyone was wondering, the QH-270 Lite from Green_Sum is the best. Green_Sum for life, ftw!

Been screwed over by a couple other sellers. Perfect colors out of box, excellent stand and build quality, the Shimians seem better overall built. green_sum, had 0 issues. my go to seller now for everything Korean, learn from this guy ta_planet and red_cap. when something is broken, replace it.

The topic of this thread is for these cheaper/inexpensive monitors. Your post has no relation to what we are discussing.

For $2.1k I'd take my chances and buy 7 of the Korean monitors. Even if 4 of them are absolute turd I still have 3 left for one hell of an Eyefinity setup.

Agreed, or even 3 U2711 or U2713HM's with full warranty. A professional display like the NEC is overkill even for the top 1% of users.
