    BTW as erocker is on the other side of the pond as are most customers from this particular Ebay trader I welcome questions from anyone in UK/EU on delivery and thoughts etc, lets hope this bad boy ships to me before the end of the month. Reviews to follow :toast:

    I got a FedEx tracking number 6 hours after I paid and it was in transit about 8 hours after I paid. I don't think I've dealt with anyone else that has been that fast to ship!

    Damn that OCN thread is 67 pages after a week. If these things are really as good as they sound this company is going to sell a shit-ton.

    erocker can you link to the eBay seller you used?

    I was so hoping that the impossible would happen and I would actually get a shipment from FedEx early. I can't believe it that I see the monitor is on the truck out for delivery. 2 and a half days shipped to Wisconsin from S. Korea. I've never had shipping that fast. Hopefully I acutally get it today. I had surgery yesterday and I'm stuck in the house. Getting this will make things much more bareable. :)

    Two and half days? Did they charter a plan just for your delivery? Seriously, considering you don't even live in a "hub" like I do that's really impressive.

    Amazing for international free shipping.

    Milwaukee's airport has a rather large FedEx facility.

    Holy cow. 3 days international? That's insane. I would like one of these but my wallet says otherwise.

    60hz suits me just fine. I don't plan on decreasing the lifetime of my monitor. If you order one now, you'll most likely get a "C" model which don't seem to "overclock". The guys over at OCN have overblown this whole overclock your monitor thing. I bought this for four reasons.
    1. It's an IPS
    2. It's larger than my current monitor
    3. It has a 2560x1440 resolution
    4. For under four hundred bucks it is in my price range for what I would pay for a monitor. :)

    When you get it can you tell us the S/N # from what I'm hearing if you get one with B# it will OC, and if its a C# it wont go over 70
