Any one else think the Catleap screen is plastic instead of glass? Thats what it feels like when I tap it with my knuckle. Are the Shimian and Crossover (non-tempered versions) actual glass?

I ordered a Catleap Q270 from dcsamsungmall on Friday (3/09/2012) and received the monitor today (Monday, 3/12/2012) - Now that was SHOCKINGLY fast! I haven't had time to check it as I didn't order the power conversion item. Anyhow, I can comment on how well the box was wrapped in bubble wrap (at least 2-3 times) and had no damage.

I took a risk going with him knowing that someone complained about their monitors case being damaged - but everyone else had shipping dates at the end of the month.

I'm still shocked on how fast that got delivered via FedEx. Just my two cents. smile.gif

BTW, anyone know where I can get a power conversion for the monitor? (to many posts to look back) Thanks in advance.

I just received my second Catleap with speakers (same model as my first that I can OC to 97hz) and NO JOY on the OC.

 

See this link for my thoughts as to why - CLICKY

 

Some people are thinking it's the difference between the speaker and non-speaker versions.  It isn't.

What power conversion item are you talking about?  Any 3-prong plug will power that bad boy.

The actual panel isn't glass on both non tempered + tempered, the tempered glass is just a layer of glass over the normal panel for added protection.

Well guess I should just go with a few more shimians to match if that's the case, save myself the trouble of selling off my current shimian unless the crossover has a noticeably thinner bezel.. then again catleaps are $30 cheaper tongue.gif

Got mine from dream-seller today. I ordered Saturday night last weekend (9 days ago). 2-3 layers of bubble wrap. No dead pixels or anything. The stand is great/not wobbly if you don't touch it (lol). I'm using a 2gb 6950 so hopefully this clears up the issue that the monitor doesn't work with this card. It's pretty awesome, just a little bright out of the box so I have to do some adjustment later. There does seem to be a little backlight bleed at the bottom right corner but it's not really bad.

Yeah, my mistake. Disregard. I just followed the club and read that I can use a generic PSU cord. smile.gif

Received my Catleap from redcap today. 1 Dead pixel, 1 Bright pixel. Fair enough, lol

Congrats, No one said the 6950 wont work with the monitor, we need to know if you can get more than 65hz on an AMD card thumb.gif

So has anyone purchased the Squaretrade warranty for any of these monitors?

Also, what is the difference between the Shimian and the Catleap besides the stands?
