Please confirm if the stand tilts to the right. So far 2 Catleaps tilt to the right.
How is the backlight bleed?
Any dead/stuck pixels?
Any strange beige spots on a white screen?
Ghosting?

Geglamash - how long did your monitor got stuck in "inbound" for? Mine seem to be stuck there for like 3 days already at CA, LA.

Ordered last Wednesday from dreamseller.
Received a tracking number Monday night.
Arrived in San Francisco Wednesday afternoon.
Held in customs all through Thursday. Released Thursday night.
Arrived at my door this afternoon.

Everything looks fine, no issues thus far.

5) pay 20 dolloars more for speaker built in! for PS3//xbox// extra speakers to use
for Price of $439.90!!!! compare to DELL $800, HP $800.. ouch...America and our Corporate greed!

I was going to get the Catleap, but now I am sitting on the fence.

Shimian
1) Stand may not tilt to one side. Probably just as flimsy as the Catleap
2) VESA Mount
3) 70Hz or more, uncertain at this point
4) Speakers are 5W, Catleap's are only 2W which would mean they should sound terrible. 5W may also sound terrible
5) May be factory calibrated?
6) Has Overdrive, less ghosting?
7) From survey above, seems to have a higher probability of getting a perfect panel
8) Sits 1 inch lower than the Catleap

Agree that the Catleap looks way better. If the Shimian does not have overdrive, might get the Catleap instead. Tough decision.

Does the Catleap silver back brace add support to the frame, or is it purely cosmetic?

Sweet... you are from the Bay Area same as myself. I'll have to order my monitor when I get paid on the 21st though. Hope mine comes as fast as yours. Thanks!

Those who have achieved 97hz with the Catleap, can you state what video cards you're using. I want to have some assurance that I will be able to do it with mine before I order it. Much appreciated.

But what would be more important for gaming. 85hz+ or a little more input lag?

They both have VESA mounts.
