I was a bit worried. You see, I had disconnected my two monitors on DVI. I forgot to disconnect my Display Port connected monitor, so it seemed all was well when it booted with the DP monitor as the main, with the Catleap extended. So I shut down, disconnected the DP monitor, and booted again.
My screen had all of these little sparkling pixels. You could see it was fine image, other than the pixels sparkling all over the place. I checked the refresh rate, and it was at 60Hz. So I shut down, made sure I had no unused cables causing any type of interference, and ensured the DVI cable was securely attached.
Upon my next boot...
I was blessed with a flawless screen, with no dead pixels! I can definitely see that gaming will be much more what I'm looking for with a single glorious display like this.
While it came physically undamaged, the stand is utter crap, so I am doubly glad I had ordered that 3M stand from ebay. I love this monitor, and it sucks so bad that I need to sleep very soon, so I won't have much time with it now.
I am, however, off for the next three days, so I plan on getting everything squared away and very acquainted with this display.
Nicely bubblewrapped with no signs of external damage.
I guess this is backlight bleed? I really don't care since I really don't 'see' it/ I'm focused on...well...whatever I'm focused on.
Overall opinion: Go for it! No sacrifice, no victory! No risk, no reward!
Over the top? Maybe, but I just saved a lot of money by switching to Geico
er Korean imports.
