It doesn't specify which model Catleap, nor resolution/scaling options.

Just got mine and its 100% working with no stuck pixels.

Ordered from green-sum on the 4th and the packaging was great, no water like someone else mentioned. I thought I had a black pixel stuck right in the middle of the screen, but it went away. The stand is crap and mine is leaning too much to the right, fortunately I have a wall mount coming tomorrow.

Insert crappy cell phone picture.

Thanks for the quick response. Scribby, do you think Crossovers is worth the extra $50?

Well that sucks, seems the "leaning" wasn't just a one time thing.
So i'm assuming it is where the neck joins to the monitor that is crooked and not just a screw not sitting flush when installing the base as speculated earlier?

Can you see anyway to fix that without buying a whole new stand/mount?

i received mine (finally). from Dream-seller since i'm at work i was only able to checked the physical condition and it seems perfect. Let see when i turn it own, hopefully i won't find the screen full of dead pixel and massive back light biggrin.gif. 3 more hours

before anyone here rip you off. Just contact one of the seller like dream ore greem tell them that you want a perfect (dead pixel free) monitor. They will charge you an extra fee, i know Dream charges $30, Greem charges $60. Shipping a few day slower because of this.

Hard to say - I don't own one.  Since it's the same panel then the mount and Apple-esque back are really the only differences.  I prefer the bezel on the Catleap myself and the ability to OC the refresh rate.

See the Catleap Club thread for discussion of "the lean."  This is a factor of where the stand arm mounts internally on the monitor (there is a monitor deconstruction overview in post 4.)

Grats!  Fingers crossed on the pixel issue.

Just got my Shimian with Tempered Glass (and I'm in love) it looks awesome, and no dust or dead pixels that I can see (I haven't done a test, just playing games and reading web pages don't notice anything)

I ordered 2 monitors, one for me and one for my buddy.

450

They came heavily well bubble wrapped

450

No damage to the inner monitor carton

450

This is the 27" compared to my present (now former) 24"

450

How the stand fits and looks (it is a bit wobbly, but does the job, not a fan though)

450

Notice my Skyrim 1920x1200 resolution wallpaper, it looks tiny in that 27" monitor, got to love the 2560x1440 resolution

450

I ordered this from "Dc_Samsungmall". I really wanted the Fed-ex delivery and the tempered glass.

Enough posting, now for some gaming!!!
Shhh!

Seems like the highest refresh rate for my monitor using my 470's is only 65-66Hz. Everything else gives me lines running up and down my screen.

How do we know that the Crossover can't do refresh rate OC? I have yet to see any true confirmation of this.
