Mine seems quite sturdy,but thanks for the heads up.
So looking, how is the seller dream-seller? He has the pixel perfect and adapter perfect one for $350. The only other pixel perfect one I saw was from red cap.
That's the monitor I bought and seller I used for a monitor for my father. I'll be getting another soon. I got it in three days after ordering. Faster than Newegg.
Nice. I might end up pulling the trigger tonight. If it is nice, might end up ordering two more.
Well, based on everything I've seen and heard so far, the only way it isn't going to be at least "nice" is if some really bad, weird shit happens.
So in other words, you will very likely soon be over a cool grand poorer.
My monitor seems to not work with any adapters: neither HDMI nor DVI MiniDP to DVI seems to work for me. Only works DVI straight. Is this normal?
The adapters need to be Dual Link DVI
I am currently using a HP Display port to Dual-Link DVI Adapter with a Catleap with no problems
Danke, I shall keep that in mind should I have the need in the future. I wonder at how many 7970's it would take to drive 3 of these monitors while maxing out intense games....most decidedly out of my budget
Don't know if anyone has posted this link.
Don't know the deal about 120hz.net issues but looks like its gonna be quality. Ships to their warehouse in Cali, they check it for you for whatever version you purchase 120hz OC etc etc dead pixel, stuck pixel before they ship it too you. They'll also box in a box in a box like method to make sure it won't be damaged on its way to you.
Another great alt if you don't wanna purchase one on Ebay.
Where are you seeing these monitors as 120hz?
They warranty the OCed monitors for one full year which is more than that can be said for the other outfitters on Ebay. Might pick up the X270ME PP version as it has all the inputs I desire and I really don't care if my monitor is 120 or 60 atm.
Ok, finally have the money to go through with the purchase.
Has anybody purchased one of the Overlord monitors? Can't decide if I want a perfect pixel Shimian from dream-seller on eBay(thanks for the heads up, erocker!) or an Overlord perfect pixel. They're pretty close in price to each other(~$10), so it's basically a matter of whether I'll need to replace the stand or not on whichever monitor. Contrary to my previous statement, I don't really care if it has speakers or not.
Any help would be appreciated.
Shimian comes with an amazing stand, no need to replace it. Just my two cents.
Doesn't the overlord single input come with the better PCB that doesn't skip frames?
No idea, just followed the link Rei86 posted and it's the same panel and looks like a nice stand.
If this is true, I'll pay the extra $10 for the Overlord.
My Shimian has been great and I'm pleased with it. As Phusius said the stand is very stable, no issues there. Only issue I've had is one stuck pixel, but if you're paying for a perfect pixel, you shouldn't have that problem.
I'm not really sure what you mean. The Overlord monitors are Yamakasi Catleaps that are rebranded. The single input PCB's are pretty much the same over all of these monitors. They don't have a scalar so there is minimal input lag.
Wish I knew more but apparently overlord had a setback.
For me I've made up my mind and go with this
So I'll let you know when the item actually gets to me.
They use the 2B OC PCB inside of them to allow up to 135Hz without skipping frames.
It should be this model infact
AH, ok. The skipping frames part had me confused. Not all of the 2B's will go that high but there is a better chance they can OC. The other PCB models just won't go past around 70hz without (not just skipping frames) but breaking. With the Overlord monitors they test them out ahead of time and sell them as OC models or not. Also, the Catleap 2B PCB's have a connector for a 2nd output that isn't used.
These are the ones I was looking at.
well the OC model is supposed to be tested and pass before its shipped out. So it should OC and maybe you can leave a note to ask about the skipping frames to be checked also.
I never heard a thing about skipping frames until now.
Apparently the multiple input models could be forced up to 124Hz, but they did not actually display all 124Hz they skipped frames to display said resolution.
But aren't some of you a bit scared of shortening the life of your monitors by OCing up to 120hz?
