(yet another) Catleap 27" question

Currently, I have a Samsung 2343BWX (23" 2048x1152), and I am considering trading up to a Catleap 27" 2560x1440 IPS display. Most everyone who owns one thinks it's beautiful, and that's not the question I'm asking.

Should I go ahead and upgrade now, or do you think the price (and size) of these 2560x1440 monitors will drop soon?

Side note, if anyone has an interest in buying the 2343BWX from me, I'll be willing to work out a deal.

The prices will surely drop once these monitors make their way to the mainstream market. Which will occur very soon. You will surely notice the beauty of 1440p but it still is not worth the price.

@Xttony When would you consider the price to be worth it? I think above $500 is ridiculous considering that 5-inch smart phones will be using 1920x1080 this year.

@jessterman21 I live in San Antonio, Texas, so the 2 nearest microcenter's are ~3.5 hours drive away, which wouldn't justify the lower costs.

In about 6 months it should atleast go down by $100. Although the minimum cost will be lower than $300. Just a year back they were about $1000 (talking about a dell monitor here). What is the cost of the monitor you want to buy?

The catleap 27" by Yamasaki can be bought for around $450 new.

That actually is pretty cheap from where are you buying this?

Hey i8myhippo,

I asked a similar question recently but no responses yet. I am wondering about the differences in price across what seems to be the same model. I think that it's worth it for around $350-400 but with all of the unknowns it's hard to say. I think I'm going to go for it based on what others have said on TH...

Not to promote my own question but I linked about 6-8 different price points from the same seller in my question: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/67250-3-yamakasi-catl...

Not even sure what the difference is...

I think I'm going to go for the cheapest one though and see what happens ... much better than spending so much on a name brand if they work out well lol ...
