Got tracking for mine sent from TA_Planet. I got the pixel perfect version $370 isn't that much. Actually I cancelled the 2720mdp after reading the review which was $500. I got the pixel perfect version and a Spyder4Express for the same price. I've already calibrated my laptop it was a huge difference and suprised it had 97% sRGB (Alienware M17xR3).

As far as I can remember, the initial teaser for 120hz IPS monitors has gone up in smoke, they revealed those monitors on CEB but no follow-up announcement has been given.

Hey I am in love with my yamakasi catleap monitor, however I am curious about a few things. Here is the list.

1- can they be bezel trimmed?
2- can the tempered glass model by bezel trimmed?
3- how well do they bezel trim?
4- can I mod mine to be capable of 100+ hz?
5- whats a good stand for 3 of these horizontal or 5 portrait?
6- do these monitors last while run at 100hz or is it unsafe?

Thats pretty much it thanks.

Also if you are going to answer my questions please rpivate message me as I am away often.
Thanks!

Final got tracking. What website do you all use for it? I'm Fedex and have found packagemapping.com to be fun

EDIT: Uh oh, just found an android app. This is going to be an obsession.

Hi guys (and Girls).
I just read this entire generic thread on these monitors (360 pages).
I apologize for not having time to read all post in the owners threads too. wink.gif

Can you remove the tempered glass from the catleap, shimian, crossover (and put it back on) easily?
I have seen the tempered glass being removed from the Shimian with a heat gun and a plastic card.
Don't know if it can be put back on though..

Call me crazy. But if I can remove (to clean from dust) and put the tempered glass back on (pretty easy) I might just order one with glass.
I have a 3 year-old @home, so the tempered glass would actually be quite useful.

I'm not positive. But I believe I've read somewhere on here that you run a pretty good rusk of breaking the glass or some other cables associated with the monitor .
