Edit: wrong info is wrong........ but it wouldn't look very good in 1080p.

well considering these people aren't really HUGE companies and with the recent influx of orders you have to give him time imo. I mean it can be frustrating that he told you one thing and you are getting another thing. Hes prob bulking the order up and shipping them in one big shipment to save on shipping. but that's just speculation.

Same here. Ordered on the 4th and no tracking yet.
Sent him a message and he just said sorry and that he would give me tracking the next day..no tracking still.

Someone will likely correct me here...but generally when you run an LCD display at a resolution different from its native resolution, it'll end up looking not too great because the pixel size was taken into account when creating this monitor for this resolution. When you go to a lower resolution it needs to split up 1920 requested pixels to run across 2560 actual pixels. At that point I believe your gpu's scaler comes in to help make this happen and I don't believe that on-board integrated graphics have the dual link dvi inputs to be able to connect to this. Could be wrong. Your best bet would be one of the multi-input ones with hdmi that likely has more input lag, which...if you're using it for a multimedia station, will not be noticeable.

But best tip is if you're just using it for 1080p, you'll get a better quality image for a lower price if you just buy a standard 1080p ips monitor from dell. Or do what my friend did with his htpc. Get a 60" 120hz led tv on sale for $800 and enjoy the hell outta that sucker.

these monitors are 16:9. they are 1440p not 1600p

so it wouldnt be stretched, but it would still be pixely

Well I ordered from Green-Sum as well, last Friday. I did get a tracking two days ago but it hasn't been updated since. Also the estimated delivery date from the tracking number says April 3rd... Which, hopefully, is a big mistake.

EDIT: Scratch that. Was using eBay/USPS's tracking to see where it was. (Which is crap) Mine is actually in Chicago now. According to EMS's tracking: http://service.epost.go.kr/trace.RetrieveEmsTraceEngTibco.postal

Any idea when the sellers would put up the Crossover monitor? Sitting on the fence between waiting for it or jumping the gun and geting another Shimian before it's listed..

You can't be dissapointed with green-sum since his the only seller selling his monitor with a estimating arrival time of around 20 after purchase while other seller give you 5-10 days estimating arrival time.

Mine doesn't show such an estimated arrival time as I'm in Canada. The only bits regarding delivery were:

Ships same day or next day (hasn't happened)
Delivery in 2-5 days (which can't happen now)
Longer delivery to south America and Africa or something (which doesnt apply)

And then there was the message he sent me guaranteeing that it'd definitely be sent out and I'd have a tracking number yesterday.

So which part of me being lied to am I not allowed to be disappointed by? The issue is about him advertising something he's not able to provide. And continuing that lie in messages he sent.
