Just got my Cat today! No dead pixels, only a slight amount of bleed, but my old 23" 1080p was worse. Really love it but this stand is miserable. I ordered a new one from monoprice. I'm really satisfied with this purchase!

You took the words right out of my mouth!

Basically what he said. I got it today from BCC, no dead pixels (that I can see yet) and no backlight bleed. The stand is absolute garbage, the monitor leans forward so much I'm afraid the stand isn't going to hold it and it will fall flat onto my keyboard.

Bought the desk stand from monoprice, still awaiting for that to arrive! So I will be rid of this miserable stand soon.

The only issue I had was that I seem to have gotten a defective DVI cable. I plug it into my Catleap (with my other monitor plugged in to one gpu with a separate DVI cable) the screen is lit but blank, the power light is flashing green, and Windows detects another monitor but won't display its picture. Tried plugging it in to both my gpu's. No dice. At this point I was starting to get scared that I got a DOA monitor. But then I realized I forgot a step. I used my other DVI cable I was currently using on my old monitor, and plugged it into my Catleap. Boom, picture showed, and it looks beautiful.

Tried plugging the DVI cable I got from my Catleap into my old monitor, and it didn't even detect anything was plugged into my DVI port. This is not really a problem, since DVI cables are easily replaced, but I think it would be a good idea for him to check the DVI cables as well as the monitor.

Overall amazing monitor. I tested it out playing Skyrim, and I was blown away. One other complete thing that shocked me, was (at least in Skyrim, not in other games) there was practically no performance loss going from 1080p to 1440p. I was getting on average 70-80 fps outdoors and 90-100 fps indoors (on max everything with no texture mods). It dips into the 40's when something intensive is happening (like the warzones mod), but that's very rare and only for a couple seconds. I was literally getting the same last night on my 1080p monitor. I'm not sure how that is possible. 12.6 beta drivers have been nothing short of amazing for me.

For anyone who purchased through green sum, how early were you able to track it? I ordered on Tuesday night, I see a DHL tracking #, but whenever I try to track it I get no results back. Does this mean it hasn't even been shipped out yet?

DHL takes awhile for them to update the shipment tracking. Try it later tonight or tomorrow. You should be able to see it by now.

So this most likely means I won't be getting it today? I was hoping considering the time frame and what some others have said on here that I would see it today.

Just ordered the SE version (regular, not perfect pixel) from bigclothcraft as it seemed to be worth an extra $15 over green-sum due to some negative feedback recently. I was concerned over getting a monitor with the AG coating, and messaged them on e-bay requesting a monitor with a glossy screen. Within an hour, I got this response,

Hello
Of course!
I will send glossy screen.
Thanks

I will update the status whether or not they were true to their word! One final noob question.. How do I go about calibrating the color? Is there a way to do it without purchasing calibration software and hardware? Thanks.

If your are tracking through ebay... You wont have any luck. Copy the tracking number provided and paste it on dhl's website.

Let me know if this helped

I purchased on June 7, and green-sum shipped it June 8 6:30pm korean time. The dhl tracking page shows the package is in local sorting facility right now. Not sure if green-sum checked the monitor as he promised since he shipped so quickly. Fingers crossed!
