You might have to bump up the vertical back porch, like around 42 for 72 Hz, and around 60 for 97 Hz.

I've been running the NEC EA231WMi at 83 Hz for over two years. So far so good.

I ordered early morning march 1st from dream seller and just got an email that it was shipped. Remember they did say that this thursday was some sort of korean holiday too, so that may account for at least a day delay for contact.

Did they give you a tracking number? They said mine was shipped the 28 but in the msg they said it wont ship out until the 5th.

No tracking number yet, it just sent an email that the item was "shipped" without alot of other info. The estimated delivery time is March 6-9, we'll see if that holds. Prefer it get here the 6th so the first time I play mass effect 3 it can be on this thing. If it comes later that's ok too, this monitor is an upgrade, but what I have now will suit me until it gets here (and assuming it is in good condition).

Yeah they had some holiday there on thursday. i ordered my monitor tuesday night and he shipped it within the next 24 hours. Now I have "Origin Post is Preparing Shipment" for my tracking status. Does this stuff ship over the weekends? If it doesn't I'll be really mad since I'm everything but patient when it comes to waiting.

What happens if you use phoenix to edit the range limits?

It could be that your monitor is a one-off...it says the max rate should be 85FPS...and yet you hit 97? It looks more likely that the EDID for your monitor was just completely not set....hmm. We really need more Catleap owners to confirm their EDIDs, as well as Achieva owners....not only this, but we need everyone to basically just try to see if they can exceed 60hz on any of these monitors.

Catleap @ 97hz would be nice, but we see one instance of it occurring, and only via a forced custom resolution....we definitely need a larger sample size to make anything of this as currently, we don't have enough to go off of.

I'll check my EDID settings tomorrow as well as try to make a custom res and see what my highest refresh rate is (may have to wait until Saturday though).

This.

The dust is extremely minor in most cases: it's less than would normally be sitting on your screen without glass. It was only a problem in an extreme case, when there were cracks in the monitor.

Could one of you guys with the achieva or catleap run monitor asset manager? http://www.entechtaiwan.com/util/moninfo.shtm. It'll parse through the EDID information and convert it to something that's human readable. Specifically, it'll tell us default timings/resolutions as reported by the monitors.
