Haha, "unsupported".

Yes. My Catleap works with my HD 5770. Been using a GTX 680, but my Catleap worked great (even showed bios).

Windows 7 refuses to acknowledge monitor on my AMD A8 integrated GPU. I assumed lack of support referred to not seeing BIOS startup but apparently there is more to it. It does work in Ubuntu though. Hope my 5850 works the same way as your 5770.

The 460 seems to be supported.

Not sure If I should roll the dice and have him send me another...or just make the drive up to Denver and get the one at Microcenter for 80 more bucks. Humm ?????
I will say that I am glad that Green-sum is handling this with speed...so far.

After waiting a week for DHL to come by and pick up the dead monitor, I called emailed Green-Sum to see what was going on. They said that DHL had tried to call me and that they wanted a different number. I then called DHL to see if they had indeed tried to call me or stop by with a call-tag. NOPE. DHL did some digging and we found out that they HAD NOT filed a claim as they mentioned, they had filled out paperwork for a "trace" as they call it. SO, I email Green-sum and told them that DHL had NOT tried to call me and that they (green-sum) had not filed any claim paperwork.

Here is their reply to my 3 messages sent.

Hi,
Sorry for your inconvenience. We are going to claim it to DHL.
----

I will keep track of this and see what it going on with the seller...I don't want them dragging their feet to get out of any refund. At this rate I will just get my money back from them, (they offered a replacement or refund) . I drove up to Denver this past week and bought the Auria monitor from Microcenter instead of waiting thru their games. Worked out of the box with my Win 7 GTX460 machine and my Hackintosh with GT640.

Firstly, how do you clean your Shimians? I think I have some "microcloth" or whatever it's called from previous monitors. That + tap water oughta work fine?
Secondly, I have a pretty strange problem. I have a TV connected to my PC through HDMI. Whenever I wanna watch something, I just press "Windows key + P" and extend my desktop. Let's say I do this, put something half-boring on and I fall asleep. When I wake up and turn the monitor on, this is what I see:

Excuse my poor camera skills, it must've been like 3 AM. The "drag" is (obviously) not supposed to be there. Same goes for the black "drag"in the middle of the screen; the whole screen is filled with the above seen "noise".
Since I'm not keen on reproducing this effect this'll have to do(takes time + I **** bricks every time I see it).

If you can't deduce from the picture, it's some kind of static noise. It's not like the stuff you see on your (old) TV. It's a blend of B/W and color. Since my witness accounts have been made in a sleepy haze, my observations aren't the best, but I think I've heard some vague noise/hum from the monitor and also, the static sometimes varies. All in all though, something like the above picture is what you'll see.
Happened the first time just days after I got it. A part from that, it's perfect.

Firstly is this drag seen on your TV or monitor? And does it only happen after hours of being on?

You need to be more detailed in your explanation.

Nope, what you see on the screen is more like the analogue noise you see on older TVs. The drag is a product of shaky hands, poor lightning and a ****ty camera.
Yes, it only seems to happen after hours of being left on. Don't know exactly how long, but I'd say definitely more than 1-2 hours.
It's never happened when I've only left the monitor(Shimian) turned off and returned a couple of hours later, in order for this to appear the desktop must be extended to the TV(Windows key+P > Extend desktop). Should be noted it only appears on the monitor, not on the TV.
I'm gonna try to reproduce this effect later with more detailed observations.
