I love it, less than a month ago I had one 1920x1080 TN monitor, and now I have a 2560x1440 IPS and another on its way (still have the TN too...).

I ordered mine from dcsamsungmall the evening of March 13. Mine is leaving Korea now via Fedex. The estimate from Fedex is that I will have it on the 20th/21st.

Ok question guys, someone mentioned that you cannot just buy a converter cable and use it with a ps3 for example because it does not have a scaler ( the cheaper monitors)

What happens if i do hook it up that way? Will there be a black border around the 1080p image of the ps3 or will it just not show anything on the screen?

Just trying to see if the extra 80$ is worth it for the gaming variant.

Oh and does dcsamsungmall mark the value of the product down, i sent an email to him to see, could save me some import duties.

dream-seller now has 30" Crossovers listed for $1k+, and the MLED version of the 27" Crossover for $659.

I've been checking to see how much he would sell the MLED 27" for, but at that price I'm not even remotely interested.

Thanx, in for 3 of the 30" version

I just can't believe the DisplayPort versions of those Korean 2560x1440 monitors are all ~$700 and up. Anybody have any insight on why there's such a price differential?

My laptop only has DisplayPort, and I've heard bad things about the active Dual-Link DVI-->DisplayPort converters out there. Even at these insanely low prices, I can't drop $400-$500 combined (adapter+monitor) on a setup that might wind up being flaky.

Has anyone tested the 75Hz of the Crossover? If it will do 75Hz I am putting an order in immediately.

That's what I'm waiting on too. I think we're at least another business day or 2 out from the first orders getting to their new owners in this thread here...

Ok, so I got my Catleap in and did a quick setup:

The good:
Fast shipping.
Well packed, bubble wrapped was thick.
No dead pixels.
Looks amazing, so much it sucks looking at my other monitors.
No problem using a regular computer cable with the power brick.

The bad:
The silver back plate was broke off. I was going to remove it anyway, so this saves me from having to take it apart. There was no damage to the box or the inside, it's just flismy.
Backlight bleed is worse than my Dell 22" IPS LCD's. Again, not a big issue, but you can definitely see it.
It's a 2C, so the most I can get out of it is 65Hz.

The meh:
The stand does not lean like others, but it definitely is not as solid as I would like, but I am going to mount it anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
The included DVI cable is short, so will probably need a new one.

I will post pics in a bit, have some work to do before I get to play.

Okay, so I'm not the only one on the edge of their seat waiting for news.

If its like my current Asus VW266H it will only do the advertised 85Hz at 1280x1024 and below then I'm going to get a PC Bank because it's the cheapest.
