    so just bought this monitor today and box was not damaged and inside monitor was untouched

    plugged in and everything seemed ok - tried the overclock to 120hz and everything was fine

    ate dinner and came back now half the screen is dark as f. have unplugged power, rebooted pc, different dp port - used the brand new dp cable that came with the monitor so is it just faulty?

    It's toast. Even if you bash it a bit like an old TV and they come back on would you trust it to last out your warranty? Replace it my friend it faulty!

    We had a 65" tv clap out in a under a month. And JB HiFi where quite upset I still didn't have the box to have it picked up in. Who the he'll Keeps a giant box like that around on the off chance it needs to be returned.

    Just tell them you shouldn't need the box, they should sell a product that lasts longer then a few hours and the box problem is negated
