Also I read somewhere that these monitors don't have any menus, does that mean you can't adjust brightness etc?

It has a brightness control, but that's it I believe.
The rest of the color calibration, tweaking, etc is done through the AMD/Nvidia control panels.

Would take one if the Price is up to 500$. Is here anybody else from Germany who would take one or more?

I'm wondering if any of the 'big' manufacturers are going to catch onto this missed opportunity. These IPS panels have been around, Dell could have taken theirs, cut out all the extras (like the Catleap) and marketed them to gamers, and we would've bought them up.

Around early May seems to be the estimate. No hard day yet. Everyone I talked to has been able to adjust brightness.

Something, if you are reading, is it possible?

You have to remember that we are buying A or A- panels. There will be something that makes this panel not an A+ panel. The A+ panels go to Dell, HP, and Apple and are sold for over $1000. We are not entirely sure how these monitors are judged but its safe to assume there will be an imperfection with you monitor to make it revive a less than A+ grade. But this is still a great deal though. The target market for these monitors are big companies with really high levels of quality control. What makes a monitor get an A grade instead of an A+ could be something that we will never notice. Most people that buy these monitors notice nothing wrong with them.

Side note, when I talked to one the sellers of these Catleap monitors, He said that the Perfect Pixel monitors come from the factory like that. Perfect pixel ONLY means no dead pixels. But my logic that if they know they are marking up a monitor by ~20% is that they do something to justify the added cost. I would imagine if you spend the extra $60 to get a perfect pixel you would not be disappointed.

Won't happen. Brands are built around quality control. Even if you buy something from a big brand knowing it will be flawed it will still discount your view of the brand when something goes wrong with it. Could you imagine Apple knowingly selling sudgrade monitors? Also, A monitor priced at ~500 (they would never sell these monitors for the same price as the Korean manufacturers) would kill there sells of there 1400+ monitors.

Once you stamp a brand on something your views and expectations about that product change. There is a reason these big company's brands are worth BILLIONS.

I think you misunderstand me. I meant that Dell could sell them for a premium, could take the A+ perfect IPS panel, put it into a thin bezel, and cut out all the things they normally do to their Ultra-sharps. Remove all the extras, and inputs, and it would be like these, but better. The could have called it a "gamer ultrasharp" or ***ever, and people would have bought them, for the same price as their other Ultrasharps.



I'm also betting that a large company like dell wouldn't have a problem getting those 120hz PCBs for them as well. Maybe they underestimated the market. Maybe I should, or should not, be in product design, IDK.


LG is supposed to have a monitor just like this out "later this year", so maybe they were getting to these, in their own sweet time. Maybe those 100hz Catleaps have something to do with that, IDK.... LG does make the panel to them, maybe those got a prototype of their 120hz PCB as well. I'm mostly just theorycrafting for the hell of it at this point.

(LG has a 120hz IPS low response time monitor they showed at the last CES, that is due out 2012 Q3-4) Google "LG 120hz IPS" to read more.

what you mention is the reason why you never should buy "top-branded" products like Apple. And why these korean monitors are great buys.

I believe HP tried to build something on this idea with the 27" ZR2740w, but nevertheless that came out with 12ms G2G response time...

any estimate on availability, if at all, in near future???
