I found this website selling the Adapter ("For EFL-2202W") thats $123.99 on ebay for those interested.
Same model for $27.06 + shipping
http://laptopbattery-hp.com/ac-adapter-24v-5a-for-efl2202w-effinet-lcd-monitor-fy2405000-p-9178.html

Shipping might take awhile but its a proven adapter.

I am kinda getting the impression that most of these re-sellers just pass on the order and shipping information to a central warehouse. So in fact most of us are getting monitors from the same place... Who knows maybe I am wrong we will see.
~$350 for an x1440 IPS is a steal and bordering a reasonable gamble.

without seeing the addresses of the senders on the boxes, i would still have to disagree with the bold section as the packages seemed to be packaged quite differently from seller to seller.

Sorry if that came across differently, I was just making a general assumption not stating facts. My company ships UPS, FedEd, and USPS depending on what the customer asks/pays for. Some shipping methods require different packaging to get certain rates.

Just seems that there have been a couple of people whose monitors were marked as shipped but no tracking information was provided. When the seller was asked why was that the case I remember that at least one of them said that they mark the item as shipped when they pass on the shipping information.

I think that information is passed on to the staff by the guy that handles the eBay account.

Could be. I am too lazy to troll back 100 pages for the post. biggrin.gif Also, being that English is not their primary language, at times it is hard to get a clear understanding from the seller's responses.

Would that be against eBay policy though? To mark something as shipped when you actually haven't shipped it yet (note I interpret you as your organization even if you are a one man show or a giant corp)?

I still think that it would be a lot funnier if we are all getting the monitors from the same warehouse/distributor just going through different sales guys.

5th one down.

I guess it's just how they deal with marking the purchases, it's not completely truthful then.

I doubt there's anything illegal about it but I can understand it's a little annoying.
Maybe message the person that marks the purchases like this and tell him to change the way he does it.

Just so the people that order from him in the future really know when an item is shipped and a tracking number is ready.

I think the hate for the Shimian stand is a little exaggerated. While it isn't something like those sexy glass ones you get with a Samsung HDTV, I've definitely seen worse.

I have a Catleap (lite version, without tempered glass) that I'm considering selling. It has *no dead/stuck pixels*. I was very lucky it seems, not a single dead or stuck pixel.

After using a monitor with AG coating for the last 4 years, I'm not sure if I can live with this glossy thing. Picture is much nicer, but the reflections in my current room have me wanting to put up blinds, or get a DEL model with ag coating.

Anyone interested? Not looking to take a bath on it given it's literally got no dead/stuck pixels. Oh, payment would be through paypal, shipping would be via FedEx ground, and I'd ship from my home here in Canada. For feedback, I've got 10+ years of feedback history on paypal which you should be able to see before sending payment.

Edit: If you have a catleap with a matte screen, I'd be very interested in trading too.

Thanks,
Ted

i can get 2 catleaps from this forum from the ones that are disappointed by them. then get a nicer one for the middle. i might even consider getting ones with messed up pixels because i dont care too much for the quality of the 2nd and 3rd monitors.

but my budget for all would be around $900 shipped. i'm also considering just asking the korean guys for a paypal invoice of $900.
