He said most of his stock ATM is 2C and 2D. I didn't really mind, I was mostly just curious. His response for my second question was great. He said that he's unsure of which models have the backlight issue, and he said that if I wanted, when I ordered he would personally check my monitor for the backlight issue to make sure. So looks like I'll be going with him thumb.gif Just gotta sell my darn laptop now..

I had the same experience of him replying. He also said he will personally check. If I get the guts together to order, I'll ask him to do that. He is the only seller that actually replies inside of 24h hours on emails, and I wrote 4 altogether.

It's funny though, that with Squaretrade, you can take the warranty on the dcsamsungmall item, but not with the bigclothcraft item.

I know two people who have bought off him who got 2B, one who got 2C. Not lottery odds.

If there was a place where I could get guaranteed 2B, I would have bought from there, I took a risk and lost. Let me be disappointed.

Still a good monitor, it won't be replacing my 120 hz 23.6 LG as my main. What is the latest on the replacement PCB? This thread needs a FAQ section.

I'm the only one who craves the resolution more than the 100hz? I even play FPS games. =/

I just feel the resolution coupled with the great colors and contrast would help me spot an enemy off in the distance. *shrugs*

Edit: also wanted to mention, I've contacted bigclothcraft about matte versions of his monitors. (I'm asking especially about catleap, but asking for ANY with matte)

Nah, I crave more about the size of the screen, the resolution and IPS, less about those 100Hz. I'd be just as happy getting a 2C or 2D. 60Hz is enough for me. I rarely play action shooters, mostly Starcraft2, and Flight Simulator X.

Yeah dude, I got this for the resolution and IPS more than anything. I havn't used a 120Hz monitor before (just 75Hz, but those were damn nice) so that is why I got this one, hoping for the PCB Upgrade kit. If I don't get it, I still have an awesome monitor though.

And yeah, it does help pick out enemies ALOT.

Yes, be careful with those cables.  I don't have a source for cables - been working on those.  Which cables do you need?

Just the center lower right cable, seen here..

For me personally it does not really matter whether it is an IPS or non IPS screen. I cannot pick out the enemies more easy with IPS than with an NON-IPS imho.

That is mainly in reference to 1920x1080 vs 2560x1440 resolution and not the IPS part.

ebay sellers have to create an account with SQ before it shows up on the auction.  SQ will still cover it though if you go to their website directly (at a slightly higher price I believe - like $5 - over an ebay purchased link.)
