So I have been thinking about buying one of these monitors and have read through this whole thread, as of now between the two it looks like the Catleap is the one to get. The Crossover was mentioned much earlier on this tread and I was wondering if anyone has asked Dreamseller or any others if they could sell it? The Crossover seems to have a much better build quality than the others (Aluminum body and a sturdier VESA stand that can pivot, swivel, tilt and elevate) while using the same screen.

Also, I found a site that has reviewed all these monitors for anyone that would like to see more photos and technical specs. The site is in Korean but google translate makes it decipherable.

Catleap
Shimian
Crossover

And for reference here's their review of the UltraSharp U2312 (they didn't have the 27" or 30" Ultrasharp)

I plan on buying the Crossover. As of now, the only way to buy it is to use a 3rd party to ship the monitor, since they don't ship out Korea. A member on here bought one, and they should have it in the coming weeks.

I called and emailed squaretrade about their warranty and they said they would honor it. Do you guys think they are blowing smoke up my ass?

Is there anyway to make them honor it with said emails if I end up needing to use the warranty?

Anyway I'm buying the catleap tonight...

Supposedly even if they dont you get your money back for the warranty.

I feel kind of sad for people who choose Achiva over Catleap cuz of leak of VESA mount, but not its been confirmed that Catleap does have VESA mount... and about Achieva having overdrive.. I don't think they have it. If it does, people who have Achiva would have confirmed it by now which they didn't so thats a "NO NO".

Like the wise say when you have to pick between an apple or orange with difference of 20 dollar, pick the apple (DuH apple!) that cost $20 dollar more, most likely it's better smile.gif ..(Get the joke, apple= Apple) smile.gif

That's what I've heard... I would think it'd be illegal to sell someone a warranty with no intention of ever honoring it lol...

Do you work for Yamakasi/Catleap? Literally 9 out of your 10 posts are condescending towards those that bought the Achieva and do NOTHING but gloat about the Catleap, which you supposedly don't have yet. "SO GLAD I BOUGHT THE CATLEAP!" "LET ME LIST THE THINGS I LOVE ABOUT THE CATLEAP!" "I FEEL BAD/SAD FOR THOSE THAT GOT THE ACHIEVA!" "ACHIEVA CAN'T POSSIBLY HAVE OVERDRIVE!" rolleyes.gif

We have ONE confirmed case of 97hz being reached with a CUSTOM RESOLUTION, and another at 85hz. These are not NATIVE.

I'm glad you got the Catleap but honestly, who cares? I got the Achieva and I can afford 100 Catleaps, but i am perfectly content with the Achieva....we have ONE case where someone can't get over 70hz on an Achieva, and also confirmation that the EDID utility isn't saving the settings to allow the Achieva (which uses the SAME PANEL as the Catleap, REPEAT, uses THE SAME PANEL AS THE CATLEAP) to mirror the settings of the one Catleap that could do 97hz.

Seriously, get over yourself, and stop posting about how "Catleap is the way to go, blah blah blah..." rolleyes.gif

Are you planning on using Minarin Shop like the others in this thread mentioned? I'd like to know how the process goes before ordering for myself that way. I'll probably wait till I hear something about it first.
