The Shimian comes with a 1 year from purchase/15 months from manufacturer date warranty.
I'm not sure about the Catleap Yamakasi.
I have the manual that came with my Catleap; if any knows Korean/room mate/girl friend that does, I'd be glad to scan/take pictures of the included manual.

sozo.gif I think I need to unsub from this thread in order to make peace with my wallet. smile.gif That Catleap looks so awesome!I have 3 Dell 2312s right now, and I'd love to personally compare the differences. I'm assuming there'd be interested buyers in the marketplace if I did order one, and then decided I still like my Eyefinity too much. Hmm...decisions...decisions...

so my father ended up picking one of these up from korea before my parents came to visit me from Korea. They ended up picking up another brand, called First. anyways it seems to be the same exact panel, I also have the glass thing or whatever the cover thing is. I have no dust issues which is very nice. it also swivels/and tilts and has speakers.

I did the overclocking that has been recommended in this thread. I got it up to 81hz, and anything beyond that, the screen goes completely crazy lol.

curious, how do I check to make sure that 81hz refresh is actually taking? I mean it seems to be working, but when I turn off my vsync, I am usually over 100 FPS even at this resolution in the games that I play (running 2 480 gtx in SLI watercooler overclocked to 890mhz)

oh and this resolution and panel is friggin amazing.. my father is blown away at the ridiculous price difference in the US along with how much better everything looks.

The happiest person in this entire thing? my little brother... hes been having monitor envy ever since I bought the 27 inch Asus, and he has a 24 inch Sammy.. lol anyways he will be getting my old Asus and my 24 inch Sammy will be up for sale.

ok scratch that. using the program that was supplied in the OP's post, CRU-Preview, I was able to get it up to a max of 81hz. Finally my nvidia control panel started working as well is allowing me to create custom profiles and I am able to get my monitor up to 97hz. I wonder what the difference is?

So anyways I need to see if I can test if this works.

This will give you a much better picture of what mine looks like. I have really bad lighting in my room, and only and iphone camera. if someone still wants me to take RL pictures I can.

BTW my father was telling me this stripped down models, actually all have models thats around 50-100 dollars more with all the bells and whistles. These bare bone models are for supplying PC Bangs in korea. Which is just a PC gaming room. He asked if I wanted the bells and whistles... but to be honest I dont see a point at all in all the other stuff so I am perfectly happy with what I have.

Big problem right now... lol they are coming to visit again during the summer... should I or should I not ask them for 2 more... to be completely honest, I am not sure what GFX cards I would need to run 3 of these in a game at 2560x1440 and actually play at a respectable FPS.

Gameplay will be much smoother on higher refresh rates if your video card can output 100 fps.
