when you view it from different angles the "pixel" moves in relation to my mouse cursor, so it's definately dust. Sorry guys! Otherwise... no dead pixels, but no way to remove it except to clean the glass (where I have the chance of reintroducing more dust). It's not bothersome so all is happy. No dead pixels. You guys think i should change my vote? or is the dust still a vote of disconfidence?

First off, this thread http://www.overclock.net/t/1220518/will-fix-edited-posts-do-not-reflect-the-edit/
It's a bug OCN is trying to hunt down.

About the dust, IDK, it's up to you. If you find it particularly annoying, leave it as a defect. If you're OK with it, you can change your vote if you want.

Still saving up for either an Ivy Bridge build or waiting one more year for Intel's new processor. Oh and if there is a group buy happening, I would like to purchase one of these from them. PM me if someone is doing a group buy. Thanks

By the time the seller receives the monitor in bulk and pays $700 for mass shipping, then drops $100+ on overseas shipping, there isn't much of a profit margin left. Unless Achieva lowers their prices, I wouldn't expect these to drop below $370 or so.

I think it would be better to not get the tempered glass version if assembly isn't done in a dust free environment... sacrifice the awesomeness of tempered glass for a clean monitor

Dust is definitely more relieving. I'd take the monitor apart in a damp environment (restroom with hot water) and try to get the dust out if I were you, because little things like that annoy the hell out of me.

Posting to keep track of this thread easier... I'm tempted. I love screen real estate, but I love dual monitors more, and one of these would look weird next to a 23" TN panel (I'd imagine). I'd also be unable to game on it reasonably with my 6870... gotta' try to keep talking myself out of buying it rolleyes.gif, the monitor is an amazing deal.

Signed up here just so I could track this easier and also comment about how great a find this was.

I'm in the same boat. I could really use one of these, but at the moment only have a pair of 460GTX's in SLI which wouldn't really be able to do much for games. For desktop work I'd be ok probably, but newer games would struggle I imagine. Only running 1920x1080 atm, and this would be a massive increase in pixels needing to be pushed around.

Sooooo tempted though.

Appreciate all the work, pictures and info people have been sharing.

is the dust still a vote of disconfidence?

Dust to me says simply to not get the tempered glass monitor. One more layer of mfg means one more chance for dust.

>this< close to ordering the Catleap.

The picture would be scaled then. As far as I know, there is no hdmi to dual link DVI cable available that has the bandwidth to push resolutions above 1920x1080. Native HDMI 1.4 can, but a converted HDMI 1.4 cannot as far as I know.

Dream-seller shipped my monitor mid-day yesterday around 15 hours after purchase and just gave me the tracking # a little after 24 hours after purchase. Just want to say that since some of you were getting your tracking #'s days after you first bought it.

Also, how bad of a situation is it to get dust between the glass and LCD? As far as I know it could be solved as simply as going into a humid bathroom about 30 minutes after somebody had a hot shower or whatever, quickly split the panels part and blow some compressed air in between. I don't see why having a chance of getting a flawed screen due to getting dust under the glass a turn off and reason to not get the tempered glass monitor.
