Looks like mine still has a couple of hours before it lands in JFK.

Anyone else have issues with the EMS tracking site? Most of the time I can not get it to come up.

You can get a film to go over the screen. I believe someone posted pictures in this thread but with 185+ pages it is difficult to find things.

Also, I'm working on an Achieva club too. You don't mind if I copy some of the Catleap club's formatting do you?

Ordered from Green-Sum. Packaging was well done. However that's where the good things end.

1) Opened it up to find WATER INSIDE THE MONITOR PACKAGING.

2) The Stand tilts, but I understand this is normal for all Catleaps.

3) Got 4 dead pixels stacked next to each other.

Deal was too good to be true, sadly. I guess I can live with it given the price, just very very disappointing.

Here's the pictures I took: http://imgur.com/a/aTnQq

Interested party here who has usually kept on the lower side of monitors over the years and wants to break into some higher end stuff as I just haven't been happy with my purchases in the last 5 years. This seems like a good deal and an amazing panel, and I've looked over the thread somewhat thoroughly, but still have some hesitations. For someone like me who doesn't necessarily understand the modern monitor scene and all the technical discussion going on here (though I am of the advanced technical persuasion, just not in this area), is this monitor for me? I'm sporting a Sapphire 6870 (non-OC) for a video card just for the record, in a newly built machine with decent specs.

Thanks in advance.

2 Dead pixels, right next to eachother. Sucks.
Oh well, I get what I paid for.

Can you take pics? This is pretty close to the worst case scenario for these monitors, so it'll help people understand the risk.

You've come to the right thread on the right forum. Welcome to OCN!

First off, for general, non gaming use, this monitor is amazing. Working with this monitor over, say, a cheap OEM monitor is like putting on glasses for the first time. And you don't need to be a display guru: all you need to know is that this is up there with the very best computer displays available. 24" CRTs, Medical LCDs, and Plasmas are the only different displays I've seen that can compare.

Yes, this deal is incredible, but there's also alot of risk involved. The manufacturer is 6000 miles away, so we don't exactly get much support for faulty hardware. Read the thread, consider the risk yourself. It's well worth it IMO.

Also, a 6870 should be plenty for powering most games out there. The more demanding ones like BF3 might require you to turn down settings, but Bf3 on high with no AA at 2560x1440 looks alot better than it does on high-ultra at 1366x768 with AA. But the real beauty of this monitor shows itself in old games: forcing 2560x1440 resolution brings old favorites back to life.

Damn. Think I'm going to pay Dream-Seller to check the monitor for dead pixels by paying him 30 bucks.

I'll put that in the OP.

Will he do that?
