I heard you can use your graphics card to change the resolution. Correct me if I'm wrong. And if I'm wrong, I might need to rethink my purchase.

Do I need the versions with the scalers in order to back the resolution down to 1080p? Also, I'll probably be putting on a 3rd party stand which allows for pivot rotation. It appears that the Catleaps are the hardest versions to remove stands from. Which are the easiest/best? Thanks.

My Qnix just uses the VESA mount for its stand. 4 screws and it's off. I believe the iMon is the same way.

Should I let the seller check the monitor before shipping or just have it shipped with factory seal (unchecked)?

I'm only asking this because it'll take a couple more days extra for the monitor check. And also, I believe that at very least the monitor manufacturer should have some kind of a QC process before releasing them out to the suppliers. What do you guys think? Please weigh in. Thank you.

PS. For those of you who already received your monitor, did you choose to have it checked or not? And, what's the condition of the monitor? Thanks.

Id always have it checked helps avoid a DOA.. which is a headache with having to ship back to Korea.

The strange thing is that we try with an old ati 3870 and 580 gtx, both have dvi-i, and my friend cat leap will boot on dvi-i but not on dvi-d on the 670 gtx. What give ?

Are you guys plugging it into the correct ports with the correct cable? Also make sure no other monitor is plugged in to that PC or EVGA card...

Thanks. BCC is going to check it anyway. First time buyer so I just got overly paranoid. frown.gif

BTW, I love Blacksburg. Had a great time there. Seeing your name just reminded me. thumb.gif

Yes we check that. We only plug one catleap at a time. When we plug mine all is fine but when we plug his, we have either a black screen, green screen, vertical lines flashing at the beginning and again black screen. It is strange that it will do that on dvd-i on a old build we got but plugging my recent build with a 670 gtx evga on dvi-p, no post. On my catleap, old build on dvi-i or new build on dvi-p it will always post. Another thing is the first day that he plug his catleap, all was fine. Only on the second day. Very strange.

So we are down to the wiring inside the screen, but it is a pain to open and we dont want to dent it if we need to sent it back. Unless somebody have a brillant ideal on how to solve that, I thing we will sent it back.

I ordered mine last week on Wednesday from BCC and I asked for it to be checked out before shipping and it got two days after on Friday. When I opened it up. It didnt seem like they opened it to check for defects. But mine has no problems and no dead or stuck pixels smile.gif.

BEST $320 spent ever smile.gif

I went with the Crossover. Mine should be here Wednesday or Thursday. It says, expected Thursday, but it's 7 AM and it's a 30 minute drive away at the sorting facility from my house. I imagine, they might bump it up to Wednesday soon, as well, it says 1-3 day shipping....so if it got here Tomorrow, that'd be day 3 in my eyes. tongue.gif

Monday = day 1, Tuesday = 2 day, Wednesday = Day 3. That is how I believe it to be. tongue.gif

Based on all reviews I read;

Crossover has less chances of blacklight bleeding, they ONLY accept 3 dead / stuck pixels, and the stand is MUCH better, as are the parts supposedly from someone who took it apart found the soldering and wiring was much cleaner.

Also, about 35 % of people whom bought Crossovers found they had a A+ panel, not A-.

Of course, it's luck of the draw with ANY of the Korean monitors.

But there is a reason why the Crossover commands a 50$ lead. Well, for one, it uses steel instead of plastic in many of it's parts, the stand is hard plastic + metal instead of the Catleaps rather cheap stand which most replace with a 30-50$ stand anyways!

So to me! Buying the Crossover wasn't really spending more...I'd have to order a new stand off of Monoprice for 30$ + 6-7$ shipping and then install the damn thing. Or I could pay 55$ on Newegg for a really nice mount that would be along the lines of the one on the Crossover.

So to save myself time, and a little money, I went Crossover. I also feel really good about Crossover, just the logo, the reviews.

As I said it's luck of the draw with ANY of these monitors...but Crossover, out of the brands release so far, seems to command a high quality product, but again, that is the 50$ Premium. Also, they don't OC at all. Most Catleaps don't OC any more, but alot of them can do 65-67hz, while Crossover can do none.
