All it does is ruin the experience if you notice it every time you use it. But if you're oblivious then it all works out biggrin.gif
If the whole 2B / 2C overclocking thing is a lottery, I think I'll still just get 3 crossovers. I sent a message to some buying agent and it seems like the Crossovers are on gmarket for $260. Grab 3 of those + their fee and shipping and it should still be $100-150 cheaper than Dreamseller, assuming they're willing to ship something that big. If not, I'll talk to Dreamseller...
Also the more I research, the cooler stuff I find.
Apparently people are buying up these 27" panels and controllers and building their own displays. Best part is they have better stands/casings than any of these Korean versions. (Most of these DIY displays seem to be from China).

Looks awesome, the shell wraps exactly around the panel itself, no wasting bezel space. Looks like that one is DP only, and the stand is a bit extra. [

How can we get one of THESE? I would MUCH MUCH MUCH rather have a single DP connction than the dual-link DVI (DP is what was developed to replace DVI).

Any information on getting one of these would be awesome smile.gif. It would essentially be the same exact setup as an Apple Thunderbolt display minus the fancy casing.

In windows 7 I just used the built in colour calibration wizard to make a profile. You get to set the colours to try and make some grey bars show with no colour. Seemed to work well.

I've also made it run as admin. Any other suggestions? It's not that big of a deal, but I'd much rather have it auto, than having to remember to click it each time. I definitely want to use the loader, since I can totally see the difference in gradients.
EDIT: I have gotten it to work by right clicking the shortcut, selecting properties, and then the advanced tab. There I checked run as admin. Previously I had done it under compatibility, and that hadn't worked. Going through the advanced tab was what finally allowed it to start up automatically.

Use this LUT loader called Monitor Calibration Wizard, it will sit in your system tray and constantly enforce the LUT even if an app tries to change it (which most games do). Plus it stores the LUT as a hex editable file so you can tweak your shadow detail manually. Be sure to disable windows7 LUT loader otherwise that will interfere with it.

I've emailed a few taobao agents (people that buy stuff for you and ship it overseas). Maybe there's a bigger discount if we order a larger quantity, or maybe not.

Just waiting on replies, Google translate isn't great and I'd like to find out more info about the displays. Also my 5870 only has a single DP port right now. Hopefully Kepler has a few more if I went this route, as I'm not aware of any DVI to DP adapters (I know of the reverse, DP to DVI)

Here's a few more I found... including what looks like the actual enclosure they sell for DIYer's

Awesome! Keep us posted for sure.

Any newer card is filled w/ DP. Most new laptops have DP for their video out, etc. Anyone who games is going to have a newer video card anyway which all have DP on them. Hell, the new ATI cards actually use less power when using DP over DVI (their minimum power draw is lower).

The casing is a ton better too on that. Very minimalist. I dig it and would order one in a heartbeat! Let me know if you are able to get them.

Couple of those listed ( more expensive ones ) have DVI controllers. So the cheaper ones are actually DP.

http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=14581124673

This one looks the most promising... Minimalistic, includes free HP stand (looks decent) DP Input and according to panelook.com it has a better panel than the Catleaps. 2200 yuan == $347.31, so still decent price.

vs
http://www.panelook.com/modeldetail.php?id=4999 (Catleap etc.)

Not by much, but 380 vs. 420 brightness... and it started production 2010, vs. the Catleap revision was started in 2008.

Are you guys looking for a frame that will fit our controller/panels?

I took mine apart, hoping that there was a way to mount it barebone like the U2410 (has VESA mounting points on the metal frame). Unfortunately, it doesn't seem possible. I would love a slimmer/matted frame.

If you even skimmed the review it's blatantly obvious that the 3view PB2700 is IPS.





Offered red-cap $360 for a Catleap, he accepted [best offer, maybe he gives 'low-ballers' less of a discount?'] Later requested to switch to the multi model, but he said the lowest he could go was $450 [although at the time, others had it for $420]

Asked for the Achieva Tempered Glass model instead, then, for $375 and he said he'd ship it free of additional charge. I'm more than pleased with $360 for the Achieva version. Ordered Sunday, swapped to Achieva Monday -- no tracking number yet.

All your descriptions of the various models are correct. The "gaming monitor" just indicates it has multiple inputs (hdmi) so you can plug in your ps3/xbox. Tempered glass does 3 things. 1) Protects your LCD. 2) Gives a one-glass-pane that covers the entire front of the monitor. So no plastic bezels/etc...the entire front is one nice flat sheet of glass. 3) It removes your ability to massage dead pixels back to life and there's a risk of dust being behind the glass from the factory. If you're planning on multi-use and need a scaler, the gaming monitor version is likely the best choice for you. As for the power plug, you just need to use a standard computer power cord that will plug in to the outlet and connect to the rest of the adapter which is attached to the TV. Greensum put a converter in the box for me at no charge without even telling me. And now I'm off to bed. Cheers.

Thanks for the info, appreciate it. What's the fuss on these B2 revisions though?

Also is it totally free to the UK or have there been cases of import charges?
