By the time there could be a problem with the monitor the price could have jumped and you'd have to pay more but that's just a possible scenario that could occur. Some people that have these Korean monitors also suffer from minor retention, which could be a possible long term problem.

I've been following overlord since scribby was talking about it at the 120hz forums. Never have I heard of them having a limited A+ batch. When the company first started they did offer a pixel perfect monitor for regular price but that doesn't mean its an A+ panel. I think another benefit you could add to the overlord is that there's no language barrier between you and the company. Also since the company is very small support is very nice and helpful. I received one of the first batches of the monitor back when the font made it sound like oberlord, however because of an accident on my part I didn't get the pixel perfect monitor for the pre-purchase price it should have been. Overlord called and offered to take the money off since I didn't but instead I asked for a free 24 or 26 awg cable (can't remember) and they allowed it.

It's possible I got it mixed up and it was a pixel-perfect batch and not A+. This was several months ago.

You should check out IPSLedMonitors.com, they are an American based company and have a 30 day, no-questions-asked, return policy for Korean monitors...and they also offer a 3 year warranty plan where they replace the monitor if something goes wrong.

There are so many of these monitors being produced and so many resellers that I do not think we will see a significant price jump like we did with the Catleaps.

Has anyone done business with the ipsledmonitors.com? Sounds like the best deal to go with, IMO

Yeah there are a few folks on this forum who have...I've only heard positive things so far.

And you really can't beat this, from their warranty page:

Hi guys, I'm looking at upgrading from my current monitor a Sony HS74P 17" monitor that I've had since like 2005/06ish. Bunch of dead pixels in the top right that formed after time?

I was looking originally at 24" IPS from Dell/Asus, then heard about the Korean market.

Problem is I don't want a 27" cause I only sit about 2 feet from my monitor and having something that big can't be good for my eyes.. I found some CatLeaps for 23". http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-New-YAMAKASI-CATLEAP-2300-LED-IPS-23-LED-1920X1080-DVI-Monitor-/120914564502?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c2711d596

It's roughly I think the same price as a 27".. what do you guys think?

My main uses are:
Gaming: Counter strike 1.6/Source (1.6 97% of the time), other high end games Crysis, BF, CoD eventually, Portals, Dirt, etc etc.
Movies & Anime usually in 720p, but soon 1080p.

With my monitor now it's 5:4 AR so whenever I watch anime I get letterboxing which I've gotten used to and like since subs show up in the black parts anyways so it's easy to read.

I'm worried that if I go to 16:10 letterboxing might be really bad where movies and stuff will look bad? I play CS at 800x600 in-game, while native desktop res is 1280x1024.

All in all:
Is the CatLeap worth the risk of a dead pixel +$100ish
Which AR should I stick to for gaming and movies?
23" Catleaps aren't worth it. $370 for a 23" 1080p Catleap? You could get two Dell U2312hm that have way better build quality, flexibility and support for that price. Heck, you could get a full 27" 1440p Catleap for that price. 23" Catleaps shouldn't even be on the table, there are far better 23" models available in North America.

Is there a specific reason why you can't, say, move the monitor back ~20cm/8" or so? If you're really worried about something that big, that close to you, moving it back about that about the same size as a 23" closer to you. Remmib may love his Qnix to the exclusion of all else (even to ignoring its negatives), but he does have a point - a Qnix would probably be the best for you.

Thanks for all the input guys, it has helped my decision. Yeah my desk is small it's from IKEA and my monitor now is pushed back all the way, but the stand is circular so if it was a small stand I could definitely make another 8"

How are the stands on these monitors as in depth wise? No longer than 5 inches? If anything I could get an Arm Mount and just put it to clamp onto the hole where all the wires come out from the desk. That would solve my space issue so I could get a 27.

I just feel like gaming up close my get weird. Hardest decision still comes to the 1200 or 1080 ughhh

I suggest going with the arm mount (but if you do so, go with the X-Star DP2710 as the foot stub of the stand is more easily removable).

And to answer your question how 'deep' the stand is, it's 7".
