post #4451 of 11297
How long do these things take to ship? I'm going on a trip in 4 days (no one will be around to pick it up unless I ask a friend or someone to stay at my house until it comes) and I am just curious if I will get it by then. I ordered it Saturday. BCC messaged me today about what to list for customs and marked it as shipped.

I messaged him asking how long it will take and he said this:
Quote:
It takes 1~2 business days to inspect.
After shipment, I will update tracking number in ebay.
Shipping service is DHL Express.

But he already marked it as shipped and there is a tracking number listed, but it has not been updated yet... Did he ship it or not? headscratch.gif

1-2 business days to inspect monitor + 3-5 for shipping is a lot more time then what people have said here that it took them to receive theirs. Again I'm not impatient I just want to be sure I don't miss the monitor.


Edit: I'm also really nervous about getting a couple dead pixels or any backlight bleeding with mine... I know it isn't that noticeable, but I'm just so nitpicky like that.. maybe I should have gotten the perfect pixel :X Hoping I get lucky!

I'm in the same boat man. I'm really picky about these things and will be mad forever if something is wrong.

Guess these Catleaps are old news, no longer the amazing bargain 100HZ monitors, pixel perfect, for 350$ tongue.gif
5 dead pixels being acceptable is crazy as well.
Yeah, the OC models aren't a bargain anymore. As for the dead pixels, 5 sounds a lot, but it really isn't out of 3.7m pixels. Most people don't really get as many, probably around 1 or 2 and they don't notice them unless they extensively look out for them.

Anyway, if you want perfection, go buy an Apple monitor.

Just kidding.

Buy Dell.

Just kidding again.

Here you can find pixel policies with all major monitor sellers:

Oh I know, but I don't accept even 1 dead pixel, I get a full refund or replacement, or else I go legal, but I doubt that'd happen with these Korean panels.

Tough stuff...

I think a couple people in this thread (I read so many pages I can't even remember) said that people said they have got theirs from Bigclothcraft in 2-3 days? I'm pretty sure people have said that which helped me make my decision of BCC over Green-Sum (faster shipping vs free monitor testing service). Or am I going crazy? Hoping I wake up tomorrow and there will be updated shipping info on my tracking number!

anyone know if a single 670 is enough to drive the res?

Might pick one up if that's the case.

However, I don't want 30 fps in my games if that's what will happen lol.

Would also like to know, thinking of picking up an Asus GTX 670 DCUII TOP

Well you said "5 dead pixels being acceptable is crazy as well.", which is lower than the standard in US. Of course you can always just pay restocking fee and return the monitor in store, that's the perk of buying in store over say online since they won't give you free shipping for a return, only for defect (5+ bad pixels, DOA). Does that perk really justify the 800-1100$ price tag though? wink.gif

so far no problems for me. probably the game that loads it the most is bf3 , doesn't ever seem to drop below 40 . I have everything maxed including msaa and fxaa. it is beautiful and runs smooth.it usually stays in the 50s or hits the vsync limit

Holy crap.

I picked up two GTX 670's only to discover that the board I chose was only a single PCI-E slot frown.gif

Anyways, 40 fps is hardly bad. I will save some money and grab one, it seems.
