Guys i'm afraid this news has hit slickdeal.net, soon this monitors will be a dead deal. Order your monitor without thinking right now cause soon they'll be out of stock.

I doubt they're going to go out of stock. Green-sum sold like 100 Catleaps in the course of a few days. According to them the C in the serial number stands for "Built in March". I bought mine on the 4th of March and received a C serial number. Meaning it had been built for maybe 4 days. So they're building these to keep up with supply.

I'm looking into these DIY Taobao screens now... just because the enclosures are so much better than any of these retail displays.

The screens are also not rare, LG makes these 27" panels, they're binned. The higher quality ones go to Apple/Dell. The rest go through these routes...

you underestimate the slickdeal effect. I remember when the touchpads went on a firesale, I swear...every website SD linked to was basically under a DDOS attack.

they may not go OOS but prices will rise with higher demands.

Just my 2c

That would happen if the Dell U2711 suddenly went on sale for $350, which is essentially what happened with the HP Touchpad.

But not because some Korean resellers are selling displays that retail $250 in Korea for $400. The lack of a decent warranty, risks of bad displays, etc. are going to turn off most people from the impulse buy that was the HP Touchpad.

Slickdeals is mostly full of people just hording and flipping for a profit. These you can't really horde, but who knows. I've seen people pawning monoprice stuff on craigslist at 500% markup.

Unless there is some kind of collusion between sellers, I doubt that the price would be affected much unless supplies get tight. Regardless, while slickdeals people love a bargain and will accept second tier quality to save a buck, they seem pretty risk averse. The chance of having to waste $100 returning their bargain monitor and the lack of a warranty will scare many away.

this is my reply in slickdeal

Has been discussed but never posted as a thread. This are selling like hotcake, i notice one seller sold more than 100 unit in one day. The units comes with one year warranty which you have to pay shipping back (around $100) and still is cheaper than buying the dell model or hp model. Squaretrade cover this monitor $58 for 3 year warranty which still comes out cheaper than buying other brand. This is one of the hottest deal of this year $370 monitor highest quality ips, 2560x1400 resolution, no input lag unlike other models, no AG coating, nice looking monitors. I have a samsung 120hz 1080p 950D which i paid $650 a few month ago. After using this monitor the different is night and day, Sold my samsung and haven't look back.

Is your loss if you think this is not a hot deal cause this is what might happen
1) monitor will be out of stock soon
2) they will raise the price on it to make more profit (sellers are only making around $20-$40 profit per unit)
3) Company will switch to a lower grade display and that'll be the end of the cheap ips screen. Since the units at the beginning where able to overclock to 100hz, now the new units are using a different board only capable of 67hz.

you can ask the 3000 post in overclock. Who is NOT satisfied or have receive a DOA monitor from the sellers. I bet no one will reply you,

In the vote, there only one DOA mention and it was user fault that did not work with his videocard, after upgrading videocard everything worked fine.

Highly speculative. I'm sure a lot of people jumped on this deal early thinking the price would quickly go up, but it went way down instead. It's a good deal (if I weren't saving for something else I would have jumped on the deal, myself, and I may yet, which is why I continue to follow this thread), but it's still a gamble. The defect rate out of the box is hovering around 20%, which is pretty horrible, IMO, and we don't know how these will fare long term.

What you are getting is a bare-bones monitor with nice IPS panel, but cheap plastics and no scaler (which may be good if you are a gamer, though I've seen at lest one video showing this monitor lagging behind a Dell with a scaler :shrug:), a single input, a high defect rate, no manufacturer's warranty and that you'll have to send back to Korea at your own expense if it arrives DOA. I'd say this deal is best for people who are cheap by choice rather than necessity. If you buy one of these because it's all you can afford and then you have to ship it back to S. Korea, you're pretty screwed. Again, I'm not taking a dump on this deal, I just think a balanced assessment is in order.
