Ah, thanks for the response. I would say if I had one monitor, it wouldnt be that big of a deal, but I have two different monitors and the differences in colours just bug me a bit. I'm guessing I probably have to go the hardware calibration route.

Is the reponse time on the Catleap the same as on the Achieva Shimian?

Any other differences in build quality between those two, besides the stand?

Don't know which one to choose...

Reviews show the Shimian has better contrast and I think is mildly better in brightness, black level, uniformity, etc. Those could all be random, though.. but the Catleap definitely has worse contrast than the Crossover, 3view, and Shimian. Someone got a response from a seller of these monitors and they said the Shimian is a higher quality monitor than the Crossover, because it is an A- panel? Perhaps the Shimian has an A panel?

Has anyone noticed whether there is a correlation between a particular seller and DOA/Faulty/Dead Pixels?

I was going to go with dcsamsungmall but idk now. I have seen a few report that he doesnt ship with good packaging and a few have had shipping damage. Also seemed to notice that most of the dust complaints were from him. Or is that just me? I seem to have heard good things from DreamSeller.

I thought because it was a 2 part adapter you just needed to change the power cord from one that works with korean outlets to one thats compatible in the US. Like this:

The plug type (c) in Korea is the same as in Europe so that shouldnt be a problem. But could it be a problem that their electronics are working at 60hz and in here it's 50 hz?

Thanks

What is the input range on the stock transformer?

Edit: It appears to only be rated for 240v. Are people just plugging a standard 120v line into the transformer?

It depends. Mine is rated for 110-240 V, 50-60 hz. Catleap ones have been shipping with those, although some people have gotten 240V only ones.
