might buy this
Yeah this is a bad time for me to buy a new toy but I'm just glad more affordable high res options are starting to hit the market even if it's only through channels like eBay.
waiting on wiz 680 review
either to buy new card or new monitor
since my card still can max any game might just buy this but its thru ebay
and ebay is never been nice to me
I recommend Garrus
Only if you live in Korea. The guys selling them from Korea on ebay are making a decent profit.
They are making a very good profit and also they wont even ship it to my country anymore.
With shipping/labor they're probably making around $50 bucks a monitor. Regardless, it's cheap for the rest of the world at the prices they are selling them at.
Compared to the ultra expensive dell or apple with similar specs yes they are.
Q. this work on 250v wall outlet?
Do you mean 240v? The Yamakasi Catleap's ship with a 110v~240v power brick.
Question @ erocker (sorry to insist on this): the stand doesn't allow rotation???
See these pics (from the review i posted on post #85):
Isn't the inner circle able to move in regard to the outer ring? Check the review i linked both here and in post #85. Since you already have the monitor, could you please check again?
No only tilt like on the cheaper monitors ; you could rotate the whole monitor with the stand .
Actually, i'm right: if only i had watched the videos from the review i posted ...
This is what i was asking all along.
Correct, the monitor doesn't rotate (meaning switching from landscape to portrait position), the base does rotate though. The base/stand is pretty garbage too. My new mount comes in Thursday, I'm very excited! It was expensive I'll take some pics of taking the monitor apart (you need to, to remove the silver arch in the back to get to the VESA mounts.)
Meh, it's not so hard to make any monitor do that with a stand that doesn't have a plastic bearing ring on the bottom. :\
Anyone know if this stand is compatible with the Catleap?
I got my catleap last night, no dead pixels, some slight light bleed around the edges, the monitor does lean to the right like most people are reporting but hot damn i am happy with my purhcase. Pictures and gaming look great on this. Definitely a very good bang for the buck.
It says that it "fits both 75x75 mm and 100x100mm VESA-D monitor bolt hole patterns" so it should, maybe others know more.
Picked mine up this morning as I was in the area of the depot and CBA with waiting for them to redeliver, also I am out most of the day so likely I would receive another "you were out" card when I got home.
Unfortunately am still at work and won't be able to update for a few hours at the earliest, not too mention my Fujifilm S2950 bridge camera is bust so all I have is my Galaxy SII to take some pics, but hey it's the excat same one as Erocker got with the glossy screen/no glass or speakers and only dual-DVI
Stand doesn't look to bad if you don't regularly move your monitor around, I will probably also invest in a new one though just to be on the safe side.
Mine just got delivered, can't wait to get home & check it out. Ordered Mon. morn, delivered Thur. @ 1:30PM.
are the prices more likely to go up or down? I won't use the monitor until May, should I wait to buy it then or buy it now just in case?
Got my Ergotron MX mount in today and installed it:
For some of you using VESA mounts, have some washers handy as there is very little clearance between the VESA screw holes and the metal shield of the internals.
Wow. Super nice. I see why you caved on this one and spent more than you originally planned.
(Haha all those desktop icons and an empty Taskbar! )
I used to use the taskbar.. but in the end it makes no difference on today's computers. I mean we have this large desktop space, might as well use it I guess.
Prices are already going up a little and I would expect them to go a bit higher. Get it now.
nice erocker - how much was the stand btw?? its about $170 here
Alright. I'm guessing the one with Glass would be annoying in a room with any light?
