i could be completely wrong, but i take whatever these eBay sellers tell me with a grain of salt. we all know that they don't really test the monitors as thoroughly as they claim they do.
I guess the question is, are other sellers also shipping on a delay and if not, why? Because they aren't checking the monitors as carefully and sending lesser panels, or because they get better stock from the manufacturer? Or because he had a crazy sale and sold way more than he expected? I ordered mine from him a week ago, and while I'm not thrilled with the delay, at least he sent me an email to let me know he was aware of the issue. For me that's good enough, but I can understand why it would really upset some people.
Which all kind of makes me wonder what kind of testing Samsung is doing on these panels, and why they are being sold off this way. If there are truly perfect panels available, as some have gotten, then what's the defect that forces them to be sold for half-price?
