At $500 it wouldn't sell. You can buy reputable brands like hp with an a+ panel and warranty, albeit at 60hz for that price. Not many would go with no warranty A- grade with unofficial 120hz with no long term feasibility studies on the pcb and the panel being run at that speed just for the extra unstable 60hz, with AMD users and non-680 users limited to around 97hz and not even the 120hz. They'd be shooting themselves in the foot by doing that.

The demand is Largely because of price. If there's more than a $50 premium till considerably limit their own sales. That's why don't believe they will do that. And the $250 pricing is the current price. We pay $350 on eBay due to shipping and eBay fees. An extra $50 premium would bring it to a total $400 cost with shipping, which again is just $50 more than people are paying now.

as stated the selling point of these is the price.. because there cheap everyone will get them.. if they raise the price then there gonna lose sales. I bet that if they charge 400 bucks instead of 700 ppl saying yes it would be maybe 200 or less

hey bq do you know who will be handling the selling? Buying direct from witech? Or a third party?
I think I recall the reason they stopped making the units with the o/c PCB was because it cost too much. If they start selling those again, I fully expect the price to reflect that.
back when these were first sold they were $400, so I use that as a minimum. 250 as some think, is just a dream.

well 250 is about the actual price, then add 150$ shipping smile.gif and now we got 400$, It will be "Third party" but they will be buying it from Witech, you cant get it directly form witech.
Its kind of been mentioned before, but i will hold teight with the actual seller, until I get the green light.

Here is proof from HyperMatrix, that the monitor is actually showing 120-130 hz.

He is running program called Refresh Rate Multi tool.

"RefreshRateMultitool displays a sequence of easily distinguishable images at the rate of your monitor's refresh rate."

You can count the visual bars, at each refresh-rate in these stills he made.

60 hz = 3½
100 hz = 6
120 hz = 7,5
134 hz = 8

then do a reverse test.... 8 / 134 = 0,0597 * 60hz = 3,582 (witch is the number of bars we actually se at 60hz).
EQUALS = this is running at 134hz.


60 HZ
448

100 HZ
448

120 HZ
448

134 HZ
448

Should probably add...in Denmark, they use a comma instead of a period to show decimals. So 0,0597 is 0.0597 and 3,582 is 3.582. Confused the heck out of me when I was looking at it at first. Lol.

Agree, if I am getting an A- panel from Korea with a questionable warranty and dicey stand, I am not willing to pay a premium. Others may place more value on 100 Hz. It has value to me, but not $500. If it is more than $450, I am most likely out. I'll wait for a u2711 to pop up on slickdeals and just call it a day.

Been following this thread since it started, and along with Scribby's PCB plan it's a major reason why I haven't bought one of these monitors yet. Having never overclocked a monitor before though and being new to most of the terminology, I was hoping that some of the folks who've had experience with overclocking the 2Bs (HyperMatrix?) could shed some light on what the long-term effects of this might be, in layman's terms, on the monitor? Do you expect it to have an effect on the life span of the panel? Have you noticed any adverse effects since you set the overclock?

Oh, and for what it's worth, I think the premium of $50 is as much as I'd be willing to pay, bearing in mind the potential re-issue of the 2B PCBs and availability of cheaper monitors with decent stands already (e.g. the Crossovers).

Thank you... forgot how unreasonable the rest of the world is... wink.gif
