So I ordered one Crossover with versatile stand from DCsamsungmall. Let's hope it's a good panel. I will get more if it turns out to be nice.

So I paid on the 9th, waited until the 14th to ship, asked for a refund at that point. Took two days to initiate refund, and now I will only get my money back on the 20th.

What a bunch of hardship for a stupid monitor.

They can keep their junk. Willing to bet these things start burning out within a few months anyway.

Nothing in life is free or easy I guess.

can you try going to 75?

I'm not familiar with the process but can if someone gives the needed timing parameters, I only found the 85hz setup.

bitter, lately?
On a serious note: I ordered from Dcsamsungmall, and he Fed-Ex shipped it in 1-2 days. You shouldn't have gone with the seller that's swamped with orders.
Shhh!

ACH = Archtek Telecom Corporation, assuming they didn't just make it up. They don't seem to be a monitor company though.

Try just copying and pasting the parameters for 60 Hz. I needed to use different parameters for 85 Hz to get it to fit within 330 MHz.

Talk about irrational sour grapes.

I only ordered because of the 85Hz. I am not buying any more 60Hz dinosaurs, IPS/Quad HD or whatever.

Edit: I was going to just swallow the fact that the good ones were gone already, but green-sum couldn't be bothered to ship a 2C within 5 days, so yeah BITTER!mad.gif

good day gentlemen

i ordered a catleap from red-cap on the 10 of march. and it says it has handed over to air carrier on the 14. Do i have to be worried? it has to be shipped to switzerland so that may take longer but still.. not sure how i feel about that. maybe im just paranoid?

here's the tracking: http://pic-hoster.net/upload/40955/Bildschirmfoto2012-03-16um18.53.40.png

greetings

So do these monitors without scalers work with GPU-enabled scaling to display lower resolutions? I have old games I like to play that wont support the max resolution.

I already ordered the Crossover so I hope it will work, and I am anxiously waiting to hear if higher refresh rates like 75 hz works with it .
Edit: Hmm, looks like it might not. At least the bezel sounds better than the other 3 monitor variants ;p.

Also, what is the height of the monitor+stand at the lowest setting? I hope it fits in the same spot as my 24 inch Samsung that has a large bezel/no height adjustment.
