    Thanks for the Facebook idea, can't see him on there but will try Linked in. The postal address apparently has over 2,500 businesses registered to that postcode so it's likely just a forwarding service but that's where I'm sending the papers anyway.

    I initially had emails from web.enquiries@hazro.co.uk but that's been quiet now for over a month.

    Overclockers advised using support@hazro.co.uk but I never heard anything from there.

    Overclockers are fully aware of the problems here and yet they continue to sell Hazro products, products with warranties that they know will be worthless :(

    I will never buy anything from Hazro again, Mine died after 2 and a half years, (vertical line of red pixels)

    I expect a £400 monitor to last longer then 2 years for a start, and the return service from Hazro is terrible. Luckily OCUK sorted me out on this one so it was all good in the end.

    OCUK should STOP selling these monitors if the company in question doesn't even reply to anyones emails.

    Mind telling how Overclockers helped? They're refusing to do anything for me.

    I bit of luck on my behalf I assume, I sent the monitor back to OCUK on request, within 2 days I had a full refund as the monitor was "destroyed in transit" :confused: that's as much information as I could get

    Ah right, guess they wised up as they told me to send mine direct to Hazro.

    Same thing just happened to mine - glass is no longer supported by the bezel on the right hand side. I've cable tied (with lots of cable ties) a loop around the screen to support it. Other than that, the monitor is still going with no problems (other than the occasional occurrence of green dots - which I think is a DVI issue since it goes away on a restart).

    "Still going with no problems", "occasional occurrence of green dots" Oh that's OK then..... :eek:

    "Having to hold it together with zip ties". Are you real!

    Glad I looked here before buying the Hazro weekly special.

    Absolutely gutted right now. I bought my Hazro WD from Scan for £479.99 back in Nov 2011 (so still under warranty?) ... just a few months before the Korean ones popped up for much less. That's always annoyed me, but every time I turned the screen on I kinda didn't care any more.

    Well until now! I've recently noticed it was occasionally turning off (perhaps once a month for 3 months), and I'd need to unplug it a few times before it came back on. Then this evening I left the room for 5 minutes, came back and it was off and never came back on :( I've reconnected the power, DVI input, tried different sockets, changed the plugs fuse. Nothing works, no monitor LED lights etc.

    There was no smell, no smoke... the things you'd associate with the board blowing, so what's the odds it's just the PSU? Despite the fact the green light is still coming on for that?

    Has anyone had the same happen with their Hazro? I'm dreading having to deal with their CS (or lack of) and it's going to cost me £23+ taxes to get a PSU from the US... which is a lot to pay if the monitor does actually turn out to be dead.

    I'm having to use a crappy 32" 720p TV as a monitor now so it's a hell of a step down... any advice will be greatly appreciated!

    I have a 27WD but i'd never overclock a Hazro, judging from the forum they seem to be a bit of a nightmare should anything go wrong.

    wow, can't quite believe this thread is 100+ pages long for a company I've never heard of (even though I work in the PC repair business)!

    Who on Earth are Hazro? I'm in the market for a 27" Monitor but the name of them (being I'ev never heard of them before and it also reminds me of Haribo) is putting me off quite a bit.

    They, you could say Hazro are like the Korean manufacturing IPS monitors (catleap, DGM and so on) but they are based in the UK.

    The one thing about Hazro that you'll read is the quality of the build, reliability & the customer support.

    Mine is floorless & has lasted me 2 year but not every one has had this experience & mostly in the form above.

    You won't be disappointed if you get a good one from the line but you will be disappointed if you get one that may have issues... The thing about forums though (as you already know) is most come here to moan about them & the every day forum user will give good feed back. Now if you read back you'll not find many that are happy !

    I'm a happy one (for now) :)

    That seems to sum Hazro up; great value if the monitor works without any problems, total nightmare if anything goes wrong.

    HI all,

    Okay, looks like I just need the Hazxro HZ27WB horizontal synch and vertical refresh values and then I can set it up manually. Seems like for whatever reason the proprietary linux driver isn't recognising EDID properly?

    Can anyone help on this? Can't find this in the manual or by searching online.

    I'm going to see if thees any way of reading these values through through windows maybe? ANyone got any suggestions as to how I might be able to do this?

    Thanks,

    E-I
