Got the monitor from Red Cap. Ordered at 11pm on Thursday the 15th (around noon on the 16th Korean time). He didn't ship it till around Wednesday his time. And then the thing just zoomed around the globe and arrived today on Friday on the 23rd. The monitor was literally buried in bubble wrap. Reading this thread and having a little extra time I bought a cable from monoprice and this infamous power brick ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/280673899776?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649
) which I bought back when it was affordable.
Besides the colors being a little off tint (going to have to calibrate it) this thing looks perfect. Until I put on an absolutely black screen I didn't see the two stuck green pixels in the center of the monitor. I actually thought it was one but when I looked at the monitor with my nose practically up against the monitor I saw it was actually two itsy bitsty pixels that were in the same neighborhood. Any advice on how to get rid of them would be appreciated. Actually what scared me the most was the reports some people had (albeit with catleaps who were being overclocked) was that there might be a buzzing sound. But this monitor is dead silent.
This is also my first lcd monitor since I was a crt snob. Had the same 19 inch trinitron crt for ten years. Gotta give Mitsubishi credit for making something that rock solid. Every time I did research there was always something wrong that made it prudent to wait. And this is what I waited for.
Physically this monitor seems light but well made. None of the flimsiness reported in it's rivals.
Need to find out how to do the little things. IE getting old full screen games I like to play at their proper aspect ratio.
