I'll put that in there soon too. Tapatalk isn't co-operating at the moment though.

Well, I just received mine, and was happy until I opened up a web page with a white background. On my bottom left hand corner, there is a small (huge in my eyes...) eyelash hair behind the glass panel.

Needless to say, I'm super pissed, and seriously wondering what I should now do. I bought the ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-IPSB Quad HD 2560x1440 16:9 27" Monitor Tempered Glass version.

EDIT: Wow. Just wow. In my anger, I gave my monitor a couple of angry knocks (not usually recommended for monitors without tempered glass panels...) and the hair literally fell to the bottom, unobstructing my view completely.

That's some luck of mine. Now I'm just fine with this monitor.

Why are people still trying the tempered glass? I am glad you got lucky but it seems others are not so lucky. Not sure if its possible to open the case up and blow the dust out but the tempered glass version seems to have a horrible track record!

For any new people to this thread, tempered glass has the highest chance of not being amazing!

Damn, I bought a 3007WFP-HC yesterday for 450$, and just bought the catleap.

I'm currently running a 27' 120hz and was afraid of going back to 60hz.. but 90hz and 1440p just sounds too good to be true.

Thanks to Toasty for doing the color profiles for the Catleap monitors. I may have missed how to install them in this seriously long thread so here is a quickie install procedure (Windows 7 - not sure about others).

Go to Display, Screen Resolution.
Select your monitor and click "Advanced Settings"
Select "Color Management" tab
Click "Color Management . . ." button
Click "Use my settings for this device" check box
Click "Add" under the "Profiles associated with this device" box.
Select "Browse" and select the color profiles you want to add - I added all three Toasty made so I could decide which one I liked.
With more than one profile in the box - simply click "Set as Default Profile" to make that one default.

Cheers! Again, a huge thank you to Toasty for these!

I'm wanting to go to 120hz, but then I seen the Catleap at 95hz. Would I notice much difference? I know resolution and color. I only play FPS.

I have a 120hz monitor and i bought this. 60hz ips- 2560x1440 resolution is MUCH better than 120hz TN. 120hz is smooth don't get me wrong but image quality is #1 in my book.

In all honesty, when I went from 60hz I never noticed a difference. Bugged the hell out of me. I kept seeing posts everywhere about how smooth 120hz compared to 60hz is, but I just couldn't see it. I was moving windows from side to side like a retard just to see a difference.

But, couple months later, I played on my friend's (crappy) system, and could tell the difference between the monitors.

 

I can't believe I say this, but I think i'll sell the 3007WFP-HC and keep the catleap.

Really.... You must have bad vision cause going to into control panel and switching between 60hz and 120hz was like to different monitors. Even the window screen, mouse, drag, zoom in, out, scrooling everything was so freaking smooth in 120hz. I always thought and blame the crappy OS not to make thing smoother like an iphone or something similar but i see that limitation will always be 60hz. If you want smoother experience 120hz is the way to go.
