I especially love the part that is the title:

Adjustable Tilting SINGLE Desk Mount Bracket for LCD LED (Max 33Lbs, 10~23inch)

For any new people to this thread, tempered glass has the highest chance of not being amazing!


several people ordered before it was known that the tempered glass version had more issues with dust, and before it was known the catleap seems to have higher refresh rates

I did, had I known ALL the versions were glossy and that the catleap had better refresh rates, I'd have gone with that. As it stands, I hope my shimian with the tempered glass is flawless when it gets here.

IMPORTANT! Please note that the screen sizes listed are only approximations. The VESA pattern used to mount the display and the weight of the display are the primary indicators of whether a given display and mount are compatible. Please check the VESA pattern listed in your product manual to ensure that this mount will work with your display.

Just got that stand in the mail...you woiuld be better off trying to duct tape your monitor to the wall as far as I'm concerned.

My ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-IPSB from dreamseller came in today, took four days to deliver including the weekend. First thing I noticed, the bubble wrap REALLY helps, there were giant gashes along the bubble wrap so there would've probably been dents or even holes in the box if it weren't there. It came in perfect condition, no dead pixels and not even a speck of dust under the tempered glass. IPS looks gorgeous compared to the S27950D, good thing the samsung has a few more days for a refund going to be returning it and getting another Achieva or two tongue.gif Can't go back to 1920x1080 anymore..

Guys HELP!

 

I don't know whether I should keep the 3007WFP-HC 60hz I bought yesterday, or keep the catleap and hopefully get it to 85hz!
