Last I counted, it was at least 400 Catleap Q270's sold on ebay, and that's just through postings that are still up. Doesn't account for the other variants (Crossover, Shimian) either, so it's probably 500-1000 so far...

Ah, well bigger's always better biggrin.gif

Catleaps only sold that much because they were confirmed 100hz for a bit, Shimians, Crossovers and others don't have anywhere near that much demand. 1000 is a sniffle compared to a multi million sales in monitors by Samsung alone, not including other brands. It's still too early to call things but nothing'll change unless these monitors suddenly start appearing in big box electronic stores.

Actually, they already have. HP ZR2740W. $729. 27". IPS. LED Backlit. 2560x1440. Display Port + Dual Link DVI with HDCP. 1000:1 static contrast, 380 cd/m2 brightness. 4 port USB hub on there too. Likely using the same LG panel. But of course, 60hz controller. And just like ours, it has no OSD.

Thats not what I would consider a good price. You can get a Dell U2412M 16:10 1920x1200 IPS LED for under $300. A few extra inches and more pixels isnt worth an extra 150% IMO.

2,304,000 vs 3,686,400 is 1.6x as many pixels.

Some would argue that it is worth it. I just can't use a 1080/1200p monitor anymore.

You can get the HP for even less if you search around, that's $730 at HP's website which is almost always going to be the most expensive.

I'm going to be honest with you. I really don't like you. You're always being a jerk. Always have to have a different opinion on every single matter. Well here you go mr. smart guy. You think $729 isn't "lower" compared to the standard $1100 market prices? Let's see...current monitors we are buying with Zero-dead pixel (which is still a grade A-) with multi-input is $489:

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-YAMAKASI-CATLEAP-Q270-MULTI-27-LED-2560X1440-S-IPS-Monitor-Perfect-Pixel-/120878749173?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c24ef55f5

Now let's see. $489 --> $729. $240 Price different. Advantages:

1) Don't have to deal with risk of buying from overseas
2) Doesn't cost you $100 and weeks to ship it back to exchange it should there be a problem with it
3) Actual Grade A+ Monitor with literally 0 messed up pixels and on the spot replacement in such a case
4) A proper stand that supports the monitor + Cable Management
5) Proper VESA support without fiddling around
6) 4 Port USB 2.0 Hub (cable included)
7) Proper American power plug standard
8) Includes displayport cable
9) Having bought from a reputable brand, with 3 years actual local Warranty through HP.
10) $729 is the MSRP. You can buy it even cheaper...newegg.com has it for $679. (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176242&Tpk=ZR2740w) Making the price difference between the monitors just $190.

If you expect a big name company like HP to make this product available, with all the things I mentioned above, with less than a $190 price markup compared to what we're paying...then you're absolutely bonkers. This was a phenomenal deal when it was 100hz monitors. And scribby's hoping to source the parts to make it 100hz again. But as of right now, for a $190 price difference and what you get by buying from Dell....honestly, you're an imbecile for expecting the price to be any lower at this early stage in the introduction of these panels into the market.

Wowzers...it's even cheaper on the Canadian newegg site:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824176242CVF&Tpk=ZR2740W

Just $629.

And if you bundle, they'll give you this $80 monitor stand for just $5 more:
