I didn't get a tracking number, and judging by OP's review, it sounds like he didn't get one either.
I'm not worried since eBay buyer protection is excellent should a problem arise.


Not worried, just super anxious. :D

Jumping the gun here, Catleap or Shimian? Hitting the buy button as soon as I get a solid answer.

Sigh... if this was posted when I bought my u2311. Definitely wouldn't have minded spending the extra money on this frown.gif
Hmm, but now it begs the question. Why are the Dell and Apple IPS monitors much more expensive, even though they use the same panel? Is it purely because of warranty?

Warranty and the vast amount of connectivity.

Thought so. Then again, there is a 3 year warranty you can purchase from SquareTrade for $64. The standard warranty seems to cover everything the dell warranty covers except for dead pixels. Doesn't really specify anything about that.

Would love to buy a laptop for college + this monitor for more productivity tongue.gif

Only difference is the stand but from what Im seeing the shimian has vesa mounts and the catleap doesnt so if you wanted a better stand you can buy the shimian for 35 less and pick up one. Thats what I did anyways.

I personally think the Catleap looks a little bit better, and has a nicer looking bezel.

Finally omw home. I'll run that online monitor test and fire up Skyrim and a few other games, but is there anything else anyone wants to know about the monitor?

Would you guys recommend me to sell my Dell U3011 for $1,000, and get 2 or 3 of these monitors for an eyefinity set up?
