I'll fill in the form once I check out my monitor.

I wanted a different stand for adjustability. I thought I'd wait until I actually got the monitor, but I know how much I love my Dell's stands, so I wanted something similar. I'm wary about cracking it open to remove the grey piece, but I figure nothing ventured, nothing gained. However, my stand won't be here for a few more days.

I placed my order on Saturday night from Green-sum. Does anyone know how long it usually takes for this seller to issue a tracking number? I remember one of the sellers only shipped 2 or 3 days out of the week. Anyone willing to share their experience with this seller?

Green-Sum will probably shipped out by wednesday. Remember, this monitor are selling like hot cake right now. Before, we would get are shipment quicklybut now this guys are getting 10-20 orders per day so you probably won't get your until next week. Just be patience and it'll arrive.

The main question I have is since these require dual link DVI how would you go about running them off of one card? Most of the AMD cards I've seen only have one dual link dvi. I'm not sure about Nvidia cards though. Thanks!


I will have my second in house in about 2 hours and will let you know!  To all the AMD peeps with issues getting the monitor to OC - sorry I cannot help since I am running all nVidia.  I have had zero problems going to 97hz on a GTS 250 card (the lowest-end nVidia card I have on hand).

I then sent him/her an email asking why they bothered with the Best Offer option, since they were not even willing to sell at about a 2% discount. I did not receive a reply.
Based on that, I chose not to order from Red-Cap. Instead, I placed my order last night (Sunday) with dcsamsungmall at 6:30 pm CDT, which would have been around 8:30 am Monday morning in Korea. I received a Fedex tracking number 3.5-hours later at 10:00 pm CDT. I then received an eBay shipping notice Monday morning at 2:30 am (8-hours after ordering) indicating that my item had shipped. I checked the tracking this morning (Monday at 6:30 am) and the package had been picked up and on its way to Incheon Airport by 2:30 PM (Korea time on Monday), approximately 6-hours after ordering. That's what I call speedy shipping!
I am not sure why so many buyers are enthralled with dreamseller. He/she has a 98.5% FB rating, which is low enough that I would stay away even if they were a US seller. They appear to be overwhelmed at the moment with too many orders to keep track of and, therefore, slow shipping. Dcsamsungmall has a 99.7% FB rating and his shipping efficiency, at least in my case, was unparalleled.


For me dreamseller has come through with flying colors both times.  I don't care what his overall rating is since with me it's 100%.  That doesn't mean he is going to be great every time (who is?), but that's been mine and other's experience with him.  Take our recommendations with a grain of salt and go with what your gut says.  That's the reason for this club, form, and spreadsheet - to get as much info collected so others can make informed decisions regarding who to use and what to purchase.

Unless there's something about the catleap stand that doesn't allow you to do that, I can't see why people are going to the lengths of buying a whole new stand for it. I am extremely anal about having the monitor perfectly level with eye height, so this is really important for me to know as I am about to place an order with green-sum.


The lean for me was not due to the connection between the stand arm and the base - it was due to how the stand is designed.  It really isn't designed to handle a monitor this wide (it is very heavy - just wide of course) so it will tilt and wobble.  I have yet to read about a Catleap that does not have a the tilt and/or wobble issue.  It isn't really a negative for me since I changed the mount out immediately.  Just be aware that you may find that an extra $30-$50 for a better stand might be required for you to be happy with your monitor (still hundreds less than an equivalent purchased in the US.)

That is only if your stand arm and base are not contacting each other flush.  Someone noted that was an issue with theirs.  However, that will not solve the overall problem.   Take a look at the stand removal and you will see the mounting point is simply too low for the width of the monitor and the size of the stand mount is too small.

I just noticed it on my ebay summary so not sure when it first appeared. I didn't receive an e-mail or anything telling me I had a tracking no.

I would post model numbers, but I don't read Korean.  If you go to the manufacturer's website (link in first post or each model listed in fourth post) the model numbers don't get translated into English.  Until I can get model numbers in English the spreadsheet will remain broken out by model variations.  If people are confused about the different models for sale from a particular eBay seller, my advice is to click on the seller's store and look at all the 27" "other" monitors.  The quick and easy way to tell the difference between the Catleaps is the lower priced one is almost always the non-speaker version, then the speaker version, then the multi-input version.  People may have to do some self-discovery in some cases by referencing the models on eBay with the manufacturer's website models.  Those are all broken out by model in the fourth post.  If someone still cannot figure it out then they should post their question here.

 

As far as the hertz - I will make that change to the form, but to me it is only relevant if owners post specifics in their post that should be linked in the spreadsheet.  Otherwise, the information is useless in my opinion.

thanks scribblydagreat,

I asked green sum if its possible to check for dead pixels before shipping. Its an extra $60 and 2-4 extra days.
I am kind of wishing I would have taken that option now as my nerves are killing me about getting a flawed panel.
I will post my info on form when monitor arrives.

I've had confirmation that it has indeed been delivered.

I'm at work late tonight so I've got to wait about 5 hours from now to see what condition it is in. Hopefully the pixels etc are ok smile.gif

I'm amazed at the delivery speed and that I had no customs delay (UK). I ordered a clutch from the US and it was in customs for 10 days probably due to having no papers filled out.

Got confirmation of shipment yesterday from red-cap. Should be here in 2-3 days, per FedEx.


I'm a little worried on my paypal payment, because it hasn't shown up on my bank account yet, but that has nothing to do with the seller or the monitor.
