I have heard nothing yet bud. It's always one component or another which becomes hard to get a hold of. It's just a waiting game at this point, unfortunately.

So these are custom made monitors for over locking?

Yes. That's right. I hope we're talking about the Catleap 2B Extreme's and not the Sony monitor which this thread is about. :P

The deal is on until friday at futureshop. I got mine at bestbuy actually, they have the same deal. The monitor does not do 3d with nvidia (I tried the workaround but couldlnt get it to work). Still does 1080p at 60hz as a pc monitor.

At 177$ taxes included... it is a pretty damn good monitor for my computer.

(Hdmi 3d is limited to 1080p at 24fps or 720p at 60fps)

Edit : On the site it says 26 (today), but at the futureshop I was told it was until friday... I am not sure. If you really want one maybe you should buy it today!)

Does it do 3D movies though? Because it's still a sexy monitor and if I can use it for my 2nd computer and have 3d capabilities...it's still an amazing price. These used to retail for like $500.

Man... I LOVE that game.

I spent many many hours, possibly the most ive ever spent on a game (except san andreas) on Motorstorm Apocalypse, such a good game, so much banter and fun as hell, lol memories.

I also remember that monitor coming out at 500, wanted it so badly for this game and Killzone 3. Its darn cheap now!

I also got this display with the $150 deal. However, it only does 60hz on the pc. Any one know how to get it to 120hz on the pc? Thanks

I had no such luck, which is absolutely ridiculous. Could only get it to 67hz I believe. It did get detected as a 3D display in Windows 8, however. So it could play 3D 24p content I would assume. I ended up selling the screen with my old computer to a friend who had a PS3. He's very happy with it.

I didn't like the display anyway. It was very fuzzy. Whatever coating or glass they used removed a lot of the clarity of the image. Fortunately, my buddy is retarded and thinks 720p PS3 games look awesome so he was more than happy with it. It really was not an impressive display compared to my 5 year old HP 24" Glossy TN monitor.

Thanks for the reply, hmm weird, i thought the display had very good clarity, it was pretty good with the PS3 and cable TV, guess its just not for the PC .

It's the screen in front of it that reduces clarity. The coating they use. Probably some kind of on-glass anti-glare. Causes weird colours. And it wasn't a very vibrant display. Or maybe I'm tripping balls and have gotten too used to higher res IPS displays. Lol.
