Only $9 and has 5 star reviews...worth a try and if it doesn't work, you'll have gambled with less money than I just spend on my lunch.
i'm not sure whether to believe the picture or the specifications where it lists

"HDMI Type A Male to DVI-D Single Link Male"

no dual link dvi-d in the specifications but the picture shows it wth.gif

Looking for some feedback on this seller. Anyone think this is legitimate at all? The price is incredible. It comes out to about 170 shipped to the US. The description says verified seller of Achieva and the bottom of the site says verified with a bunch of security stuff and whatnot. Just wondering what you guys think. If this is legit I'm definitely getting one when I get my next paycheck.
Their items are processed through paypal so if there's a problem I can open a dispute right?

Ditto on what I said in that post. Any thoughts?

Something has to be off about it - either hidden charges or some scam, or you have to buy in bulk. It doesn't make sense for them to sell these monitors for so little.

Still interesting how they'll use paypal. Since paypal pretty much always sides with the buyer, if it was a scam you'd think they'd avoid it.

Probably a mistake in pricing. They have some stuff at normal price range.

You guys finding these on ebay or amazon? I found A dream-seller on ebay, but the monitor is 300$ not the 370-400$ people are saying.

Prices have been changing lately. They're more like ~300-350 lately depending on what model you get. They're legitimate sellers with better prices than have been in the past. You're just lucky I suppose. thumb.gif

What Tombom said... Prices range from the high $200 range ($285 is what I paid for my Catleap SE from Green-sum) to $450, depending on variants, "Perfect Pixel", "Multi I/O", etc... People lean toward the Perfect Pixel options from sellers because they have less issues purchasing Squaretrade reseller protections if something does go wrong. You can also pay to have the reseller "open the box and check" for any issues prior to shipping, or add extra packaging hopefully prevent shipping damage, etc...

 

However, it seems like there are just as many happy customers getting perfect pixel results from the cheap drop-ship options as there are with the higher priced options. So, figure out how much you are willing to spend, pick one of the listed sellers everyone is talking about, and don't look back....

Quite a few people do. You can find some photos and reviews - anything you need to know in particular?
