Nope, it seems the same width as my TN panel...and it's not the AG coating that is the problem, I can see a spec of dust, and I tapped it a few times and it went lower but now it's stuck.

Just received my SE model. Everything seems great and I'm quite fussy about image quality due to digital media work. Only thing I have found is that the black level isn't great. I also noticed after a simple black screen test that the bottow left corner is brighter so looks like I might have backlight bleeding. Haven't decided yet tho if it's enough to warrant a return (would be rather annoying in that case). Anyone else able to comment on their black levels and the evenness of the backlight? Best to test it in a darkened room.

Which power adapters (100v? 220v?) are you guys getting? When and from whom did you order from? I'm leaning toward the Catleap as it has the nicest bezel IMO. I would feel most comfortable with US compatible one haha.

Also, is the power indicator really that big green line as shown in the ebay pics? User pics make it seem more like small whitish dot.

Thanks guys!

The power indicator is more like a tiny green dot. A lot better than the full blown light imo. As for power, you can use any old power cable you have lying around from an old monitor etc. I bought mine from bigclothcraft. Their communication was excellent and the monitor I just received has zero dead pixels albeit a little bit of light bleeding (though may just live with it).

The power LED is green when on and red when off but it's REALLY faded. At least mine is. And this is a good thing as I'd rather have a feint light or none at all compared to a bright led as a distraction. It's nowhere near how bright it is in the pictures.

Hey guys I've been seriously looking into getting one of these monitors I've seen a few online in the 315 dollar price range and am seriously thinking about buying one by the end of the month so I can have it when I move into my appartment. I have a couple questions about this:
1. will my 460s in sli be able to run games decently at 1440p?
2. If they cant then can I just use this monitor in 1080p till I can afford a better card possibly a 7970 or 680 or maybe just hold off till the 8000 or 700 series?
3. Also what are the chances of getting a broken one that doesn't work properly and do I still have to pay return shipping if it is broken?
4. it the difference of about 50-70 bucks worth it to buy a perfect pixel edition? meaning are 2 or 3 dead pixels noticeable?

thanks guys please help me out!

1. My single 680 can handle any game at 1440p Ultra settings at above 50-60fps. Your 460s should probably be able to handle most stuff, don't be expecting ultra though.
2. Since this monitor has no scaler 1080p doesn't look so hot. It works for me but I don't know if it works for all. I haven't tested it in game. I wouldn't count on using 1080p.
3. As long as you don't mind a few dead/stuck pixels or minor backlight bleed/fade. That stuff won't be covered with return shipping. If it's completely DOA or has MANY dead pixels then you can get it replaced.
4. I got a perfect pixel from greensum and there's no defects at all. It's a debate on whether it's worth it or not since people receive flawless panels without buying perfect pixel. If you're really fussy about minor defects, then get the perfect pixel.

When I got my Pixel Perfect from BCC, the box had clearly been opened, but it also has this sticker on the box, which I get the feeling that it was not from  BCC's doing.

I ordered a "pixel perfect" option from dcsamsungmall an the box of mine was also opened,I assumed this was the seller checking it before shipping.
I have yet to test it as Im still waiting on my vid card .

Thanks a lot for the quick response. Personally I was planning on buying just the regular one from greensum but for about 310 but for 370 the perfect pixel seems like it might be a good idea. I've never owned a high quality pc monitor and I only game and browse I don't really have(professional) use for a high res monitor but the thought of 1440p and the advertisment from the sellers on ebay make me want one! Maybe I'm better off just buying a 200 dollar 1080p monitor off newegg since I know it will look much better then my current setup(my 42 inch led vizio @ 1080p)

But like i mentioned I'm really intrested in buying one of these Koren made monitors particularly the catleaps i just dont know if my cards will handle 1440 and if they cant I hope 1080 displays okay on them for the time being!
