Can someone do the same thing for the Achieva but with AMD Graphic card? Would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

I asked a while back and some one mentioned using a 90 degree hdmi-dvi adapter to connect their shimian to a console and using 720p, any success?

this is a passive adapter though, so you need to have a multimode display port, which incidentally, my new 15" hp envy 15 does have. I ordered this adapter and report how well it works, but I should be able to output the full res off my laptops multi mode displayport, and drive it off my desktops dual link dvi.

Passive DisplayPort to DVI adapters are only capable of carrying single-link signal. You'll need activ adapters for this kind of resolution.
Wikipedia reference:
Quote:
The DisplayPort signal is not compatible with DVI or HDMI. However, dual-mode DisplayPorts (marked with a DP++ logo) are designed to transmit a single-link DVI or HDMI signal across the interface through the use of an external passive adapter that selects the desired signal. VGA and dual-link DVI, on the other hand, require active adapters to convert the signal to the desired output and do not require dual-mode DisplayPorts.

Very few people are posting pictures of their monitors showing the backlight bleed considering the number of monitors that are rated as "perfect".

More pics would be appreciated.

not too bad, fairly even on mine. The corner does not look that bright to the naked eye.

btw this image is posted upside down.

Hi, I have a question about these monitors and their compatibility with older machines. I'm in the market for a new monitor and was originally looking at a 1080p 23", but stumbled upon this thread.

I have 3 laptops that I would like to use with this monitor. My primary machine is a Lenovo x201 that has an Intel integrated graphics GMA HD 3150 chip and VGA or Displayport since I have the Ultrabase docking station. The x201 can do 2560 x 1600, so I think I should be fine there (please correct me if I'm wrong). I also have a Dell D630 with Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 with VGA. My last computer is an IBM Thinkpad T42 with VGA.

I would also like to use the Achieva/Catleap/Crossover with the D630 and T42 in a pinch, doesn't have to be at full 1440p resolution, but it would be rare that I would use the monitor with these two.

Do you think this would work for me? I would love to have the higher resolution, larger screen, and future-proofness of the 2560x1440!

Thanks so much for your help. I know my graphics cards are pathetic compared to the rigs you guys/gals are running, and really appreciate your advice.

I'd be grateful if someone could measure the backlight PWM frequency of the catleap (I plan to do it on the achieva when i'll receive it). The method is described in this article : tftcentral : Pulse Width Modulation ("Testing and Interpretation" part)

@sithjedi333
For the x201 you'll need an active adapter, which are a bit pricy:

I don't think your other 2 laptops will be able to drive this in native resolution.

That's mine with the brightness on the highest setting. It's not noticeable unless you're on all black. I don't consider that a defect because through about 6 LCD panels, I have only had one without backlight bleed and it was a 2001FP that died at 3 years.

can anyone post their entire shipping status until it was deliver. Would like to see the entire process and see where mine is at.

right now my status shows "Arrival at inward office of exchange"
