Thanks!, I will try this out on the weekend.

Is this something I should get now and hope for the new PCBs or just wait? I've noticed that prices jumped back up to around 350 when ppl were getting it for around 320 couple of weeks ago.

Chances are that if the special run of the Catleaps with the 100+Hz PCB comes through, they would most likely be more expensive than what is for sale now.
At least that is my guess. I couldn't wait so I just bit the bullet, got a 2C version so nothing over 67Hz but honestly it is awesome.
I play alot of BF3 and it still craps all over my old ASUS 23.6" VH242.
If I were you I'd go for it, prices from here on out are only going to increase ..... looks like Scribby has the Modded PCB's on the way thumb.gif

We're still eagerly waiting Scribby biggrin.gif

Thanks for the straight ahead recommendation. I appreciate it.

Also, glad to hear you got the OSD back up - I needed the extra one I had for replication purposes!

Oh.. the bezel all around the monitor is already chipped at numerous spots...I used the flat head screwdriver tip to seperate them. The bezel plastic is so soft you can easily chip it by prying it open with toothpick. The correct tools would be definetely required...maybe a guitar pick or something soft - I tried credit cards and they're not stiff enough to open the bezel.

So SquareTrade would definetely see the evidence I have opened it prior. If they do refuse to fix the product because I already opened it..will the warranty fees be refunded?

They probably won't refund the coverage because you pried the plastic open. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. You could still TRY claiming it came that way.

What advantage is there to getting the tempered glass and does it have more glare?

If you are in a Korean bang cafe then tempered is vital.  Otherwise it is just for looks (Apple-esque.)  People report more glare - others don't.  I am not sure if there is someone out there with one of each to test it out.

Ran into the Vesa mount shorting issue with too long screws. I thought at first that I was not effected, but yesterday I moved the monitor on the arm and I got a pop and the screen would turn on, but no display. I was worried I had fried something, e.g that power supply plug issue. Today I took the mount off and tried powering on again and thankfully the monitor powered on and displayed everything perfectly. PHEW!!!

Remember to put washers under your mount screws if they are long enough to touch the underlying metal.

Also if I'm not mistaken it makes the panel itself level with the bezel as opposed to the bezel sticking out a couple mm. Might get the glass model just for that feature.
