"she quoted me at $385 which i payed through paypal personal gift to avoid the 2.9% paypal fee. Otherwise it was $397 with fee. Although I believe it might be around $20 more because i gave her a shipping estimate of 7kg, when it probably will be around 9-10kg. I'll have to wait for her to receive the item earlier next week (since it is the weekend) to tell me if I have to pay the additional money for the added weight."

Although, knowing now that the Catleap has vesa mounts, the decision on whether or not to keep it is really hard.

What is making you not want to keep it?

Have you seen a pic of this could you post it?

I read that some guy said they were there but that back panel has no holes in it on ebay.

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...

If they won't honor it then they should have the offer taken off the ebay ads and issue immediate refunds to anyone who bought a warranty. Selling insurance and then just giving people their money back when they make a claim isn't kosher.

The CrossOver looks really, really nice.
Nothing wrong with the Catleap, or Achieva Shimian.

Amazing, I had no idea Apple,HP, NEC, and Dell weren't the only ones with the new LG screens. These no-name monitors seem like a damn good buy to me (assuming they work when you get them and keep working)

I just recently dropped $500 on the 27" HP with the same screen. Hope it wasn't to waste now. Kinda pisses me off how these cheap monitors are glossy and mine apparently sends everyone into Anti-Glare Coating rage.

It sounded like it was behind some plastic that had to be removed.

I'm not sure how to take the silver arch off, but the vesa holes are there.

I see. If you sell your U2211's, then you can purchase another 27"... :]

But the 85 Hz + 97 Hz catleap does seem very interesting. I wonder if all Catleaps are the same, and I wonder maybe there are some Shimians out there that can run at 75 Hz + as well.

Maybe the monitor might burn faster with higher Hz? Idk lol. It kind of does make sense that the monitors do run higher than 60 Hz because they also have these monitors for TV. TV's usually run higher than 60 Hz, but I haven't heard of a monitor above 1080P running above 60 Hz.

You can see 2 of the holes underneath the silver archy thing which is held on by 4 clips.
