        I'm confused, I thought scribby was just getting the pcb's and selling them. Can we just buy a PCB and put it in our own catleap or do we have to buy the complete monitor for 460$? Seeing as you can get a catleap with free shipping for as low as $330 on ebay, and I wouldn't imagine the PCB will cost $130, I would think that this route is a better option.

        For those who already own a monitor, yeah it would make more financial sense to buy just a PCB. I have no word on if/when that project will be completed. If you were desperate for one of these monitors though, you could sell your existing one easily on kijiji or whatever for for $350, add an extra $110, and get a 2b model. Waiting is also fine. We hope we can make the PCB's happen. But we just really have no idea when/if we can do it yet. Certainly haven't given up on the project though.

        Ah ok, any idea on when the next shipment of 2b's will come in? I'm not quite ready to jump on it but will most likely be ready within 2-3 weeks.

        Yeah, I think I will only be able to get this around the beginning of June

        Well we've been told a new shipment every week, for 10 weeks or so. Which means you're in luck even if you wait.

        hmm no pixel perfect guarantee? don't like shelling out this kind of cash with a risk like that. I'd gladly pay extra for pixel perfect if they could do that in later shipments?

        There's not a large enough pool of monitors for them do to pixel perfect testing. for quite a while now they've said that will not be an option.

        well that's a shame, ill see what the results of the first batch are then. if worst comes to worst ill always have the 2b card! im surprised by how fast they sold out

        So, I'm a little new to this. These will come with 120HZ stock, or will they require being OC'd? Also, on ebay and other places, these monitors say the do not support ATI 5970's. Is this true? Why would that be the case? One more thing, my system is a 5970, an i7-930 @4ghz, 6gb ram, etc. Do you guys think it would even benefit me to get a 120hz monitor instead of the 60? I don't think I could even run games with that high of res with 120fps. Any input would be helpful. Thanks!

        How come nobody's posted any reviews yet? Is the first batch of 100 still making its way to buyers?

        They shipped out on Thursday and Friday. Only 2 people have received them so far from what I have heard. Almost everyone else gets theirs on Monday or Tuesday.

        That depends on you, mostly. The monitors themselves can be overclocked/set to 120hz easily. As long as your hardware allows it. Currently only the gtx 680 allows 120hz+. The 670 may as well. We'll find out in a few days. AMD cards will range between 75hz for Crossfire setup, 82-85hz for "most", and 97-105hz for ones compatible with Powerstrip (HD 6970, for example)

        All Nvidia cards can do 100hz. SLI is limited to 100hz. Single GTX 680 can do up to 135hz (though I only did up to 125hz without any artifacts/lines/etc..)

        Damn. I ordered a 7950 (will be here Monday -- tomorrow!) and I've been looking around all weekend for reasons to hold on to it... This limitation here may be the nail in the coffin -- GCN's extra compute horsepower can't justify the growing list of perks a 670 offers.

        Gaming at 80Hz would be nice but not nearly as nice as 100 or 120Hz would be.

        Many years ago I had played with the old CRT at 85Hz, and I can still remember how buttery smooth the mouse cursor was. With all my mice being 1000Hz I know that a >60Hz IPS display will simply blow me away.

        I really like what's been done to this place. We're on the absolute bleeding edge out here, OCing our displays. If the big manufacturer's catch on, this same hardware is going to go for $2k a unit, easy. I imagine demand is already high for sales on this site. I hope it stays well-hidden so I have a better chance to snag one of these things.

        I think the best situation would be if somebody could get the critical chip (and hence the PCB) copied and produced. So you can keep up with (for now, what seems to be) rising demand.

        That was the initial plan. There were some issues and production had to be put on hold. This is the latest update we've received.

        I have been eye balling these for awhile now. Do you think my x2 580 classifieds will be able to hit 120hz?

        WARRANTY: Yes. 1 Year. Through Greensum!
        ^
        So what does that warranty cover? since these are A- panels, if there's heavy backlight bleed/bright areas, lots of bad pixels, does that fall under warranty or is it just if it won't start at all? And who's going to pay for the shipping if it's within the first 7days?
