I'm torn between the CatLeap or a 120hz monitor.

How are the black levels on these monitors, OP? Are they fairly reasonable?

If you're really competitive at your FPS go 120Hz, otherwise go for resolution imo

Dreamseller worked for me...... extra packaging, prompt responses, no dead pixels ( luck?) and he marked it as worth $ 100 US for customs.
I tend to stick with what works, so I'll be telling my interested friends to go with Dreamseller on Ebay smile.gif

wow, I know everyone wants a deal.
but you gotta expect them to make a profit here too.

according to current price of $413
25hdfrr.png

his profit margin is about 10% depending on actual shipping cost and how much he is paying for the monitors..

remember, he has to purchase the bubble wrap, wrap it him or herself, and make the trip to a fedex store to drop the item off.

I wish they showed more actual shots of it on the auction page like the Catleap has.
Gonna snag one while I've got the money and I can always hold onto it until I get upgrade my video cards if need be or at worst, it should be an easy re-sell locally as long as it's in good condition when it gets here.

IPSB is the model I have, which is glass all across the face. No plastic bezel, I bought mines from dcsamsungmall and noticed 1 very small piece of dust that doesn't annoy me at all because of placement, etc. Another person here got his from dcsamsungmall and his frame was cracked and he had a few pieces of dust. Not sure if anyone got one from dreamseller yet. In any case, I like the monitor. It's the same panel LG as the OP so, the choice is yours. No speakers though (even though as you can see from my pictures it uses the same back frame as the OP, so you see the speaker grills, but no speaker or audio in jack).

As for the person asking about black levels. I think it's fine. It's actually not to bad, looking at it straight on, you really dont see the backlight, although from an angle you start to see it (true for any LED backlit panel). Do remember it's YMMV, not all panels are created equal

I got mine from dcsamsung mall (the one with the tempered glass) and there's a dead pixel right in the middle of the monitor. Kind of sucks, but oh well. There's also small on the upper-right corner of the screen. Besides that, the monitor is fine.
Best. Ever.

Are you sure it's a dead pixel, and not a spec of dust as others with the tempered glass have reported? Bummer though if it is. If I buy one via ebay, I'll be going with DreamSeller. I'd even go as far as to say the tempered glass ones should be avoided. Have we had any good things to report with the tempered glass ones?

He's making a profit, its a business.

Every other retailer does this, why complain when a eBay seller does?
