Im still wondering if i should get one... Has anybody else's arrived yet?
Also i wonder if the dream seller has / can add cheap IPS 1920x1200 monitors... i wouldn't mind one if the price is right.

LOL, this monitor is useless with the Xbox. At best you have a 720p image, which the Xbox scales to 1080p and then the monitor scales it to 1440p. It's going to look horrible or at best, like a 27 inch 1080p screen.
This monitor is PC only in my opinion, and with a 3GB 7970 to go with it.

Correct me if i'm wrong, but the IPSB model does NOT have an OSD right?

No one has gotten one yet, mine's out for delivery... but i don't think i'll be home for that... frown.gif

the one with speakers is model IPSBS (I assume the extra S on back is for speaker)

It's $650 on gmarket, I'm pretty sure it *was* a pricing accident actually.

an alternative someone had mentioned on hardforum is to buy through gmarket through a courier service MinarinShop (15% commission of the item and shipping charges) this might open up more opportunities. im looking into the crossover 27" due to the fact it pivots and is a single dvi link.

I don't think that's true at all. According to your logic, no one should use anything but a 720p TV with an Xbox just to avoid the upscaling. Fact is, when you get into the 27" range people use these things as a TV replacement. Many people run U2711s with Blu Ray players and Xbox/PS3 consoles. If it was truly useless as you say, manufacturers wouldn't bother putting out models with multiple digital connectors.

Anyone know for cheap like this Shimian 120Hz 24" or 24". And are this LG panels Shimiano uses good ? (LG IPS monitors are pretty bad)

There's no way it's single link dvi, that wouldn't give it near enough bandwidth for 2560x1440 @ 60hz.
