Could you take a picture of both monitors displaying the same thing side by side? I would like to see an example of how big the difference the resolution makes. My S27A950D might be going back as well biggrin.gif

Its not that its not large enough.

The base is more than big enough its the design.

The vesa plate is mounted to a ball joint which is tightened around it by 3 screws...no matter how tight you make them you cant really get to monitor to sit upright very well. Maybe it you had a very light monitor....

Theres also the fact that even if you do get it to sit in a position you like...You cant change the monitors position AT ALL without undoing several screws.

Guys, Dream-seller just replied to my question about the Crossover and he said he'll be able to offer it at the end of this week.
By the looks of it, the crossover looks much and much better than both the achieva and the catleap (the stand thingy, bezel etc)
Does anyone know whether or not the CrossOver has tempered glass?

It looks like it has tempered glass.
If I didn't already have my Yamakasi, I'd so order a CrossOver.

Good to know, those crossovers look nice. IDK about tempered glass, we haven't dealt with that brand yet.

Wow. That's alot of real estate missing on the Samsung lol. Have you played around with the refresh rates yet? I know the Catleap can go up to about 100Hz. Not too sure about the Achieva. I'm curious if 20Hz will make a difference.

I'm currently running an S27A950D + U2311H (IPS 60Hz) and from my experience, going from 60Hz to 120Hz spoiled me. Everything just looks smoother on the Samsung but the only downside is the crappy viewing angles due to the TN panel.

4 days you say?

hmm, That means you ordered it Friday, I ordered it Thursday so I might get it in the mail today, hope springs eternal. I wonder if canada has less of a delay than the US for international shipments
