Doesn't necessarily make them bad panels, just ones that LG likely gave for free (or almost free) to the monitor manufacturer and as such they won't offer any warranty for them.

Sounds like a plausible explanation and it shouldn't really be much of a problem then. I dont think it matters much if LG isn't offering any warranty for them, as the manufacturer can easily replace faulty ones with little to no cost if they need to honor any remaining warranty to their resellers.

I could only get dcsamsungmall down to $416.50 ($10 off the current price), but was happy with that so went with it - should be getting mine sometime this week and will make sure to post pics and impressions.

Thanks for the useful responses - my last questions about the catleap:

- the ebay listing talks about the way the OSD buttons are aesthetically pleasing (lol) but they don't work do they?

- i'm running a 1080 and a 1050 monitor at the moment off my gtx580 3gb, I assume I'll still be able to run an extended desktop if I put the 1440 as my primary and the 1080 as a secondary?

Thanks

the basic catleap model has just up/down for brightness and volume. Volume buttons only work if you got the one with speakers. And yes your graphics should work. I am using a GTX275 and running catleap as my primary and 1920 1200 as my secondary

However, there is no actual on-screen indicator of brightness. The Catleap Monitor Club has some information though, on how many clicks raises the brightness however much. Link is in my sig.

If your 1080p monitor has an HDMI input, then yeah, or DP if your card has it too.

I have a Nikon D90 so I'm hoping the pictures will be a bit better than those using cell phones. biggrinsmiley.gif
