Now you got a 250$ 27" 2650x1440 monitor.

That would basicly mean, that you could buy the "best" 27" consumer monitor in the world, for just 350$. this is not gonna happend! Everyone else would be out of business!
Thats about it.
You have to put it all this way.
- Manufacturer already got panels and PCB's at stock. from what Im told (This rules out A+ and DisplayPort). Nothing we can do about this
- Dead pixels can occur, there is regulations about this. they might differ from each country! You can read the Korean regulations about this, on almost every monitor listed at ebay.
- If you recive your monitor DOA, it will be taken care of! there have been a few cases already, and the sellers have been really BIG so far, at this point.
They offer A/A- 60hz rated(OC'able to ~100), whatever benzel or stand they decide to use.
It is up to you, to deside, weather or not you can live with that! (take it or leave it)
Far from everyone has the same "Sky-High" expectations towards this 2-300$ display. But are rather thankfull that this is even possible.
With thous expectations you might be better of waiting for Dell or similar rated 120hz. but you need to expect a price at around 1000$
AMEN BROTHA! Look what people don't understand is it isn't as easy as making up a shopping list and say - get me this. We are talking about, in some cases, serious language barrier issues, manufacturer stock and demands, cost factors, and basically what these people are willing to do for us. I think too many on this thread have gotten out of hand in their expectations of what we can get done with a measly, yes I said measly, 500 monitor run. This is a crap deal for these guys seriously. So a 2B monitor similar to a Catleap (if not exactly a 2B Catleap from February 2012) for $400 that can do 120hz off a 680 shipped to your house with the rare shot of 1-5 dead pixels to me is a STEAL. When we ask for things out of the norm it gets expensive and/or complicated. As stated above if this isn't the deal for you, fine buy something else.

OP you should probably just update the thread title and 1st post to say "2B boards and nothing else," otherwise we'll continue to get posts like we've seen above, with Christmas shopping lists (multiple inputs, DP, or A+ panels hahaha).
I have said from day one this thread title needs to be changed as it has started a lot of the complaints about "it should be this" or "it should that" rather than what we are actually looking for.
I believe bQvle's contact will be sending me the PCBs and cables. I will then source the gerber files and materials list from those boards once I can confirm they will OC. From there the files will go off to China for a cost analysis. So those that have monitors that don't OC, we will have boards to OC. For those on the fence - I don't know what to tell you - wait for this or buy now? I won't say what I would do it's up to you to decide what you want.
What I do know is that almost every single person who has received their Catleap and posted in the club LOVE the thing like a newborn! They are pretty, sexy, hot, steamin', and all around amazing monitors. Once we finalize the sourcing of OC monitors for purchase and the PCBs to OC "older" and "other" monitors we are all going to be happy campers (now go out and buy a 680 so you can hit 120hz!)
