What would be the best ~$300 27" WQHD Monitor that I can get from Ebay ( I don't see any decently priced ones in India)

And what would be customs like on such a monitor? Anyone ever got a Monitor from Ebay before?

Thanks!

There will be customs. How much? Can't say for sure.
Or you can just kinda smuggle it you know :p

What you are specifically looking for is the cheap Korean monitors which use LGs IPS panels or Samsung's PLS panels.
Search for Yamakasi Catleap and Qnix Q2710, both can be gotten under $300.

I was thinking of this, this might even come without fee on customs cause of its low value?

Good value for a qhd. asus has a qhd monitor for sale here but at ~45k it's too much.
I too plan to shift from 900p to qhd sometime this year. has anybody else got first-hand experience with Korean qhd monitors?
Be sure to read the fine print - dead pixels are not grounds for replacement/refund and its compatible with only high end gpus (i.e. only cards with a dvi-d port, no dvi-i or dvi-s or adapters)
I can't seem to find any warranty info on the ebay listing - is there any type of warranty for this?

Oh the Shimian, quite good.

But are you sure you want a refurbished one?
If you get a dead pixel or some other problem, you will face a lot of problems.
I think the limit is upto 35K-duty free, may have changed.

Hm, listing says they are tested and checked? I am after this, since it has the highest chance of getting through customs without any duty.. I think the personal limit is around 10k, and this is closest to it.

Would you suggest anything else near about same price?

So it it sure that the Shiaman monitor wont have any customs charges?
Also, I checked the seller's feedback. No customer has dead pixels on their's.

I am like 60% sure..lol

And yea, Shiaman monitor looks like the best bet out of others, unless you are willing to go like $280.

$280 is fine with me, but i dont wanna pay customs. I have a max budget of 18k which should include customs. Even if the Shimian has customs, I'll still buy it as it wont cross the 18k mark I guess.

yup, even with customs, it should be within 18k. Same can't be said if you cross $280.
