I - like many others - bought a new Crossover 27Q 27 inch 2560 x 1440 S-IPS monitor from Accessorieswhole - a Korean eBay seller. The seller touted himself as an "Authorized Dealer" and offered a one year warranty.
About 7 months into owning this monitor - it suddenly stopped working one day after about one hour into that days session. I rebooted several times - used my voltage tester on the power supply - nothing.
I wrote to Accessorieswhole with a warranty claim. Four days later they responded - at first saying I didn't buy the monitor from them. I sent them a copy of my PayPal receipt. So then they told me to open up the monitor and test the boards inside - WTH is up with this crap?? I had bought a SquareTrade warranty at the time of purchase - so I filed a claim with them - only to be told that they don't cover this item in the first year due to the manufacturers warranty.
Bottom line - I paid $380 for the monitor shipped to my home and $54 for the extended warranty. I feel violated by doing business with Accessorieswhole and strongly recommend that any fellow members buy from a reputable dealer in your own country and put these crooks out of business! :a
I have replaced the monitor with an AOC 27" IPS monitor which is only 1920 x 1080 - but has an excellent, sharp and clear resolution for $270 from Best Buy. It comes with a three year warranty included with purchase.
You live and learn-eh! :iagree:
