    Damn, I'll settle for one then. The extra Hz could have been fun to play with though

    Both the sellers red-hat and greensum have said that the model B's are pretty much gone. Not sure with the guy I got it from, though most likely I'll get a C. I feel there's no reason to overclock it anyways.

    +1... 60Hz is fine for me. Im not a professional gamer and do not see/notice teh difference (work with 120hz monitor for NO reason at all).

    I also got my tracking #... :) Its been in teh air for quite a while now!

    OMG... This monitor blows my Samsung 2493HM away. The stand is cheap.. that's for sure, but the picture is jaw dropping. My camera battery is charging ATM. I just tried Star Trek online and I can't believe how much better the picture quality is. This is the best purchase I've made in a long time.

    You can always get another stand. If it's a good panel at that price, then it's all good.

    It's that good?

    What's it's power consumption? Can you check this, please?

    I'm getting tempted, here!

    EDIT

    The link in the OP isn't accessible, for me :(

    My desk is a little small... could you give me the measurements for the full length and width/height of the screen?? I may have to re-organise my desk to fit one of these badboys on it!

    Yeah, I'm having difficulty finding a desktop stand at a good price. The panel is amazing looking I really can't believe the difference.

    I really don't know how much power it's using. It does have a switchable power supply so it works on 110v ~ 240v. It's an LED LCD so it's not using all that much.

    I linked to the ebay seller above. :)

    25" wide by about 15 3/4" tall for just the panel. With the stand it sits about 20" tall.


    No dead pixels too! That's a plus. It's the "C" model if anyone is wondering.

    And dman, that was quick getting to ya. I guess i know where to get mine form! Thanks for mentioning this, for sure!

    What type of adjustments does the stock stand allow for? Sometimes the AG coating on my Ultrasharp bothers me, this might be a good alternative.

    Any dead pixels?

    @NdMk2o1o: Any joy with your tracking number yet? I'd love to be able to get one of these.

    @erocker: Any defects; dead pixels etc?

    Still no update from green-sum for me :( though I read on OCN that someone waited 2 days like me with no update, emailed him and he got back a little while later with tracking info and it was halfway there, if I can get this next week will be a very happy bunny, sell my Sammy for £120 so a 2560x1440 monitor will have cost me £120 in total ($180), insane :rockout:

    I'm like you I dont plan on "overlocking" it as the panel might well be able to handle higher though that doesn't mean the board and other components can and I have never had more than 60hz on any kind of LCD and it hasn't bothered me before now ;)

    They're advertised to use 60-65w and someone on OCN used a multimeter and it was pulling 65w at 65hz

    No defects, no dead pixels at all. I'm totally satisfied.

    It is rather bright in here right now. Here's a couple pics that I didn't get light streaks from the windows in them:

    Colors are great, contrast is great. I'll see how much light bleed there is once it gets darker, but from what I can tell, it's minimal. No ghosting either.

    That first pic, the detail in it looks fantastic, how does it compare to your old one?

    ^agreed. I have always enjoyed glossy screens better than matte. The pictures and color seem to jump out at you a lot more. I think I just found my new monitor.

    65w? A monitor that big, i suppose it's natural :(

    A bit disappointed, being LED and all: was hoping for less consumption :(
    Congratz on a great buy, dude :toast:

    Does the stand allow for rotation?
