Wish I didn't see this. Now debating on returning my S27A950D to get the Catleap...

The only downside I see is the warranty. Not really a fan of SquareTrade either.

It has a year parts and labor warranty like most monitors what i gather is these are the same monitors that the big companies use they just switch the names once they get here but 400 for a 27" is a risk im willing to take 400 for a bigger monitor and a IPS beats paying over a grand here for the same type of thing next year a different model will be out.

Holy crap, i ordered the monitor yesterday and today its in alaska already this guy doesnt mess around

I am wondering the same thing. On his site it says that there are 10 available but the estimated delivery date is Thu. Mar. 22 and Wed. Apr. 4.

He's always had pretty long delivery dates. However, I'm starting to think that his are maybe more 'realistic' in terms of actually arriving then. I have a tracking number from my Catleap from Dream-Seller, but nothing has changed in it. 3-7/3-12 is my estimate, so I'll check it again i a day or so.

Good to know. I get a little jumpy when I spend $400 on a monitor from S. Korea. thumb.gif

I'm in the same boat as you, except I ordered Saturday. Emailed him yesterday and he said it was ready and he would update me when it shipped. Nothing yet though.

Hi gang - I did a step-by-step tear down of the Catleap for mounting (removal of the arc, stand, etc.) You can check that out here - CLICKY - ENJOY! thumb.gif

Just nought the catleap from green-sum. Can't really argue with less than 375 shipped. Plus he offers a 1 year warranty (maybe his bad english, probably meant a manufacturer warranty, but its clear as day in the posting there is a 1 year warranty so im not worried. 14 day exchange policy too)

Trying to sell my sig rig and build an ITX rig, some guy offfered an ipad2 for my current three monitors smile.gif I think I came out on top, eyefinity is a hassle anyway!

Thank you for going the extra mile so that some others can feel better! thumb.gif

I'll do a little digging on the subject, and update the post.
