I think you're talking about a PLP setup? (Portrait-Landscape-Portrait) I was thinking of doing that with a Catleap in the middle, and I found that 19-20" will have the same width as the Catleap has height IIRC. Not counting the stands of course.

I'm going to run PLP setup but with all catleaps. I'm running eyefinity with them now and it is great, but it is so wide that I can't really even see the side screens. I think I will just run games on the center monitor and PLP so that it takes up less desk space. I just need to place an order for my Monoprice stands.

So I've been running my Catleap for a little while now and so far, so good.

However something that seems to be effecting me a little weird is that I seem to be suffering a little eye strain while using this screen. I use my PC on 2 screens: This one and a 52" 1080p LCD HDTV. When I play on the PC in the living room, I don't suffer from this. But when I switch to this screen in the bedroom at the 2560x1440, it seems to have a bit of an effect on my eyes. I'm really not sure what it could be....maybe I need to mess with the settings or something. I don't really think I have it that bright, but I don't know.

Gah, it seems that the catleap restarts itself if I don't touch my screen for a minute or two, almost as if it's being woken from sleep, but it's not even on sleep!

Yep, every time I leave for over a minute it does this.

These monitors honestly seem to be more trouble than they are worth...

He promised to check screen before ship, but since the box is sealed, he did not.
There is a crack on the screen even it suppose to be perfect pixel, and has horrible backlight bleeding. I will contact green-sum for sure.
edit: not crack, but a pile of dead pixels...

Where on the screen is that group of dead pixels and did you pay extra for a perfect pixel monitor, or did he just say he would check it for free ?

You do know these are not touchscreen monitors, correct?

It's shown in the first pictures. They can be dead pixels, or a scratch inside the monitor, hard to tell. And yes, I paid extra for the perfect pixel.
Now I'm still waiting for reply from green-sum...

WOW  Not good at all, paying the extra for him to check for perfect pixel and he didn't even open the box.

I hope he pulls out all the stops to resolve this quickly and you must be so disappointed .

Yeah I am. I spent $460 CAD + $20 CAD import tax on it. I'm a student and it's all my saving for the past several months. I am sad.
Thank you for the kind words!

How stupid do you think I am LOL. I mean, if I don't perform any actions such as moving mouse or typing. in other words if I just watch my screen for a minute, then when I move my mouse the screen reboots. Grrr
