Thanks, +rep. So does that mean that there are no crossovers with glass in front (yet)? Those were all the crossovers I could find on eBay.

No ghosting problems here. Didn't really appreciate the monitor until I played CIV V and COD BO. This monitor is awesome!!!!! Sure, I can't overclock it, but I really don't care. At the high res the games just draw me in. Really like this better than my Eyefinity/Nvidia Surround setup.

Just about any electronics store should have them. There is also this gigantic electronics "mall" that has like 5 floors of stuff (my dad visited a few years ago). However, be warned that a lot of places A. do not list prices and/or B. mark up for foreigners and/or C. want to haggle. I suggest you have someone who either lives there or speaks the language at least do the buying.

Redcap accepted my offer for $400 each for the crossovers with pivot stand just curious if anyone got anything lower haha. Gonna have to find someone to buy my shimian now, mixed monitors might not look too good but if I can't find one, vesa stand and my third monitor it is biggrin.gif

This monitor has been excellent, no ghosing like the other hater. The only problem i have is with BF3 only, when i start a game and the map is loading i get black screen most of the time, is like 50-50 chance. I have to turn off and on the monitor a few times to see the image. If not it stays like it is on but does not show anything. The same is when i exit the game. This is weird cause it onlyl happen with BF3 and i have like 40 games. Note i have mine overclocked to 66hz.

Wow, I'm surprised I hadn't seen this thread earlier. These seem to be some interesting monitors. Which of them are currently the best options for "overclocking"? I read somewhere that the Catleap no longer has the PCB that allows for it to reach 90+hz. What're the differences between the Shimian, Catleap, and Crossover? It seems that the Crossover just has a better stand and no glass?

So what's the consensus on redcap? Good handler? Fast shipping? Sounds like I'm going to be getting a Crossover LED-P and the discount would be nice, but I don't want to have to wait forever for shipping...

Shimians + Catleaps are pretty much the same now that they don't come with an capable pcb that can reach 90+hz, they both come in glass + non glass versions. The stands on the shiminas and catleaps are both crappy one's wobbly and the latter's crooked most of the time. Crossovers have slightly thinner bezels compared to the 1inch of the others and better stand. Only thing that annoyed me on the Shimian was that all the buttons were on the back of the monitor.

Interesting. I will definitely think about it and maybe try to find a glossy screen that I can borrow to do some testing.
