, so if that isn't provided, we would just continue buying as we are now.
Seems like alot of dialogue over nothing if they don't want to be held by that.
Well, it is guarenteed the PCB, which is capable of 120hz. the panel is build for 60hz but will function at higher refresh-rates.
It is basicly the 2B version.
I think the powersupply is rated 110-230v if im correct. wich means you only need an adaptor, not a voltage converter!

They will come from the factory (assuming they do at all) set at 60hz - the standard refresh rate for these PCBs. Now we know a particular mix of PCBs will get us to 100hz (and above - new record of 105hz off a Radeon 6970 posted in the Catleap Club). I still am unsure if these will truly be Catleaps as my Witech contact, the Catleap manufacturer, has no clue about this (could be left hand/right hand? Maybe.)
Worst case is these are "no names" using the same LG panels and sourced PCBs. However, you OC it and break it - live with it.
That is why I continue to work on getting the PCBs sourced or reverse-engineered by now a dozen Chinese PCB manufacturers. First one to get us some (or make it ) wins our dough! I think it is important that we get the parts ourselves since we have no idea what running these boards at 100hz will do to them (or the panels themselves - the panels are easy to source.)
I don't mean to be a downer here at all so please don't read it this way. The OP and I have been working together with the eBay contact to get the right parts for a monitor, I am just not convinced at this point. However, it is S. Korea using Chinese parts to special make a monitor - that is easy to source with the right number of buyers.
One way or another we will get these bad boys to 100hz and beyond! I'm on a mission damnit!
I understand your concern, but unless he is lying directly, this is Yamakasi. and why would he?
About the guarantee, he knows about the PCB's, he know how they were in 2B and how they are in 2C, he also knows that 2B were to expencive in the making. thats why they changed the PCB in 2C.
The guarantee will be, you get the same PCB as in the 2B monitors. which allows you to push your refresh rate to about ~100
Edit: I also got 2 monitors beeing shipped to me atm. so im also interested in finding the right PCB's.
and take the same risk, as you would do with this monitor, and the 2B monitor. This will most likely shorten lifespan! but, if the monitor has sleep enabled ~10min, that might counter prolong it
Are you running yours constant at ~100?Edited by bQvle - 3/22/12 at 3:17pm
