Thanks this is helpful. What would happen if for my older computers that have VGA output, I used VGA to dual link DVI adapter and the computer was putting out a 1200p signal? Would the Catleap/Achievia simply display a 1200p image in the middle of the monitor and surround it with a black box? Because that would be great for me.

Please let me know, thanks!

Basically, do you all think the extra inputs in the MULTI Catleap version worth the extra $55 ?

It's worth it if you are thinking of using this for different things. (tv, Ps3, blu-ray etc). But if its only pc, the d-dvi only is a must since it will be much better. The d-dvi ONLY version does not introduce (or very little) input lag, while the other version with different input has around 3X the amount of input lag. Its a trade of.

Don't have mine yet,but will try once I do. Great link, though. My store of Knowledge has gotten bigger.

What if I use a DVI to HDMI converter to hook it up to say, a PS3? I know that won't carry the audio, but since the PS3 has multi audio out and a DIGITAL OUT (OPTICAL) port, I should be able to overcome this...

Someone advised me against buying this to be a TV/PS3 a few pages back in this thread.

Thanks, found it. I only want to know if I *can* do it - it sounds like I can in a pinch and the quality might not be the greatest, but I can live with that. This would mainly be a PC monitor for me, but I'd like the option of using it elsewhere someday when/if it outlives its usefulness sitting on my desk.

FYI, the Apple Cinema display is 1440p and LED backlit. There is a reason why the majority of high-res monitors are "plain" LCD, it's because LED usually decreases color reproduction accuracy.

oh god, i think im dying to pull the trigger for this

i read that this monitor has a display port variant, i also read that the no glass version is better as some glassed vesion has dust onto them, i also read that the catleap version can do 85+hz


i am a gamer so i would highly prefer the more hz version


so to sum it up, i need this monitor to have
hit atleast 85hz @ native res
no glass?
display port


the description an technical stuff is in korean language


can anyone give me a direct link for the trusted seller(preferably @ ebay and under $400) of the monitor that i am looking so i could get one for myself
