    Its a great monitor, however dead pixels are a no go, send it back.

    High refresh rate though. :)

    Just phoned scan.co.uk about pixel policy. They said if your not happy with the monitor you can just send it back in 14 days.

    But they also sent me a link about ASUS pixel policy

    No way I'm having a £700 monitor with even a SINGLE pixel problem!

    I don't know how this aspect of law works in UK, but over here if you buy something via Internet, there's 14 days return period, no questions asked, as long as you don't damage the product. It excludes reservations, so cases where you fill a web form, product is delivered to a specific store and you pick it up personally. Basically it covers cases where you order something and you're asked to pay without a possibility of examination. Perhaps they were referring to something similar.

    Yes I think that is what I was trying to say. I would have 14 days. I guess I just don't say why I don't want it i.e. dead pixel as they might be funny about that I don't know.

    I really want to hold out for Amazon but as of yesterday Scan had 100 coming in and had sold 88.

    NICE!
    "Total Display Lag (SMTT 2) 4.0" (ms)

    Also, the colors seem to be exceptional in SRGB terms after calibration, and pretty good even without it, there's not visible backlight bleed, luminosity evenness is acceptable, G-Sync seems to work, as well as strobe etc, and blur is close to none. The color shift is pretty bad, but well... You just have to stay in one position. To be fair, if you avoid looking from below, color shift is not that awful.

    Accidentally, I found out that the new semi-pro Dells are pretty fast too, but G-Sync is what I wanted.

    Now listed as probably available on July 31st *sigh* waiting is the worst. At least I struck a good deal.

    Finally a fair, professional review that covers pretty much everything. Grew tired of all the other *reviews*.

    Enjoy the monitor, those who have ordered!

    P.S. The Qnix mentioned in TFTCentral is the True10 model. Different panel, different electronics than the single input overclockable Qnix. So don't take those numbers into consideration.
