Thanks for all the Crossover info you've provided thus far! Now that you've had it a full day, thoughts? Maybe a few more pics would be good too.

Someone really oughtta start a club for these...

I've read through probably at least 400 posts, and I still can't figure this out.. is a 97hz/100hz refresh rate on the Catleaps pretty much guaranteed? Is it random?

The 2b models oc which were made pre march while the 2c that are coming out now dont. so your chances of getting one that oc are almost impossible, if not possible at all.
Small wonder.

Well, I read through the earlier posts. Any other options for higher refresh rates? I don't care about the price too much.. the resolution and Hz are what drew me into here.

Not much to add, did some gaming last night and was loving it. My sister has my camera right now and my cellphone pics aren't worth much.

One thing specific to the Crossover to add is that the power/status indicator light has some bleed along the seam along the bottom and towards the back. You can see it pictured here:
640
Minor issue and can easily be covered or filled in if it's facing a direction that would make it noticeable. That side faces away from me no matter where I am in the room so I probably won't even mess with it.

I do like the buttons for brightness control and power, having them in the back and the way they stick out. It's easy to reach under and quickly feel the layout to adjust brightness (which is handy at night because the screen is so bright). At some point I want to try & remove the labels on the front for a completely blank bezel, but for right now I'm just enjoying the screen.

Going from an antiglare to glossy hasn't been an issue for me thus far even with a window behind me directly across from the monitor. I can see the reflections but they are easy to ignore.

DCSamsungMall

If you're trying to decide on seller, although my box did arrive with the seal already ripped/open (and then wrapped inside of the bubble wrap) - and I like that green-sum is shipping in an outer box, I have to say I'd recommend DCSAMSUNGMALL as a seller. Besides the fact that it arrived all the way to Kansas City in just two days from the date I ordered (that's faster than Newegg is nowadays from Cali!) - his posting showed the audio input and speakers as though it had speakers (not just the open hole). I e-mailed him because the one I received did not have speakers in it and he gave me a $20 refund.

couple of comments from him regarding the open seal/no speakers/pricing/etc..

Yes shipping cost is expensive it is depend on country and state.
But we have got different price (we call it contract price)


Defiantly we ship this monitor directly.
We have more than 10 order every day, if it handle drop ship order ,there would be many trouble.


But Price is very coemptive in the ebay so there is just little margin.


May end up ordering a crossover from him here shortly.

Ordered from dcSamsungmall on Thursday evening.....this Saturday morning, the monitor is already in St. Louis. That is RIDICULOUSLY FAST!!!
post #2539 of 4784
Anyone that's ordered from dream-seller, do you know if it was actually shipped when he marked it as such on eBay?

He marked mine on Thursday (Friday his time). I'm curious if it was shipped, or if it's awaiting a pickup on Monday.

It's not shipped when he marks it as shipped.......he marked mine as shipped a day before I cancelled my order. He hadn't shipped it yet.

With that said, he seems to be the friendliest and most accommodating seller. Whether that matters to you, IDK.
