Crossover is sitting at a FedEx facility. I should have it before the end of the day... ' 3'

with regards to the input lag thing, I don't know much about monitors, but I do play allot of FPS (mainly BF3). will I notice this? I should have enough horsepower to drive it with my HD6990, but input lag sounds like it's unsuitable for fast games?

my current screen is 2ms which I find unnoticeable.

thanks smile.gif

So excited, hopefully no dead pixels or especially no DOA. Although, for the price I could live with 1 or 2 dead pixels if they are off to the side. Still hoping for none of course.

Same! smile.gif

Just got it set up, but the power light just keeps blinking red and no picture comes up. Still trying to figure it out as the instructions are all korean.

Even if I hold the power button in it doesn't turn off, power light keeps blinking, so not really sure.

Came in one huge ass box, with the monitor box inside it and the monitor in foam. Should have been way plenty safe from any damage so I'm just trying to figure this out.

Are you using the supplied dual link dvi cable?

Yes I am.

Running a gtx 460 2win graphics card, gonna swap it out for an 8800gts 512mb just to rule out graphics card issue.

Hoping that nothing became dislodged during shipping. Someone had said when they took it to a friend's house or something, when they got back it wouldn't work, and when he opened it up, he could see that one of the ribbons connecting the panel to the pcb was dislodged.

Just a possibility.

I just made a thread about 120hz monitors, and if I don't spring for one of those, I may try to purchase a Catleap here as I'm stationed in Korea.

I have a question, since some people seem to get 90+ refresh rate, will games like BF3 benefit from having more than 60hz refresh? If so, if my FPS goes above 90 (or whatever the monitor is set to) will I get screen tearing, or will vsync know that my cards are set to the monitor refresh rate and work that way?

If what people in here are saying about this monitor is true, it would honestly be worth picking one up since they are cheap here where they are made. Information would be amazing! smile.gif

Just a possibility.

Was he able to just pop the ribbon back on and get it working? I highly doubt it was damaged in shipping, I think ace ventura could have delivered this thing honestly.

AFAIK, he was able to. Have you tried another DVI port on your GPU? perhaps the one you tried wasn't fully Dual-Link? (Just guessing here.)
