Also come to think of it HDMI would come in handy for consoles...

That's what I was thinking. Not sure if I would even ever use it to be honest, but it would just be nice to have just in case.

can I have a simple step by step please ;p:p

See the first post. I believe the OP has gone to a lot of work putting as much info into that post as necessary for people to make an informed decision without reading 1200+ posts. Changing the refresh rate is easiest with nVidia since you simply create a custom resolution setting in the nVidia control panel. If you have an nVidia card and after reading the first post still cannot figure it out, shoot me a PM - I'll walk you through it. Grats on the Catleap - they ROCK! thumb.gif

Hey guys long time lurker but this thread made me finally sign up.

Ive gone through the first 40 odd pages, and the last 10 i think, looking to see if anyone has ordered these while living in Europe?

Im in Ireland and worried about getting hit hard by customs.

any advice? anyone in UK or somewhere get away with/without paying?

This might be totally useless since I'm not a calibration expert and these monitors probably don't start off at the same point but...

I made an icc profile using a Chroma 5 colorimeter and Basiccolor 5 software using
White Point = D65
Gamma = sRGB
White Luminance = 140cd/m^2
Mac OS X Lion

This is the "Webdesign" profile in Basiccolor and is for the Achieva QH270

I dont live in Europe but I know they declare it as a $50USD monitor. So you shouldnt get hit at all.

F' it. I just ordered a Catleap from Green-Sum. Here is hoping it does not take 2 weeks to deliver. I am getting this to replace a CRT that is currently being run at 1600x1200. If the picture on the catleap is as good as the CRT I will be extremely happy - the extra real estate will be a bonus.

Let us know how it goes. I also want to order from Green-Sum but want to know how he/she has it packaged. hmmsmiley02.gif

Added a couple of pics to the waterlogged skeleton build that show the refresh and the overall front. I will post more pics in the am once I get this wall mounted. The stand on the Catleap is serious garbage for my taste since I can notice the screen kind of wobble around if I bump my desk or the fat lady in the office next door gets up to hit the can (for the third time in an hour!)

I plan on doing more detailed pics of my wall mount solution over on that build log as well - so check it out if you're interested.
