Wow.. purchased from dcsamsungmall Tuesday, it was delivered today (Thursday).. In Kansas City no less, so no coastal destination here =) Go FedEx and lax Alaska customs!

383

I'm at an airport in Milwaukee on my way home tonight, wife got it, so I'll open it up tonight and post my results.

It's a catleap btw, with speakers I think (looks like that is DC's "base" model for the same price as green-sum).

i ordered mine mid-day or so from him I believe it was (on the 13th - my wife's birthday - I bought a new monitor for myself haha) and fedex estimated Monday but it was delivered today. So you might get lucky and get it tomorrow or Saturday!

Sorry Bruce another Crossover related post comming. No one has one yet, I don't want to make a club for it untill I do. I don't even want to at all, I'm not as knowledgable about monitors as you.

L D4WG, From what I've seen from pictures.. It looks to be black, with a while perimeter. I asked dream-seller to send me one with an all black stand if they have them. We'll see.

From what i can see in all the pic,

White stand = Fix mount
black stand (more expensive) = Adjustable stand

Mind measuring for me? Would like to know if I need a longer one so I can order one beforehand.

Edit: Oops, never mind. Someone answered earlier in this thread: ~5ft.

Is the Catleap Q270 compatible with a 8800GT graphics card, if not I can upgrade.
post #2367 of 4771
It SHOULD be but you won't be able to play any game decently with that. I am in the same boat...currently I have a 4870 (only slightly better than your card) and am going to have to update if I end up nabbing a monitor. Just takes more power to push this many pixels.
post #2368 of 4771
Probably not gonna happen, at least not from dream-seller. I actually asked him about this max refresh rate thing with the crossover model, he said the crossover model he has has a max refresh rate of 60Hz at 2560x1440, below is his reply to my question:

The max refresh rate of crossover model is 60Hz@2560×1440. All the crossover model that we have now has 60Hz@2560×1440 of the max refresh rate.

Maybe other sellers has 75Hz model, I don't know.

3 very Important questions to all:

Post your monitor name\model also, please smile.gif

1) Do you have any console (PS3 or XBOX360) hooked up to the monitor? How it works? Clipped at the edges, distorted or fullscreen?

2) Lets say that there is Doctor House or anybody else on your screen in HD 720p. Face close-up. When he movs, bristle & pores of the skin are getting blured for any period of time noticeably?

3) If you can compate to any other IPS\TN monitor, "big 27 inch daddy" looks slow or fine?

Thanks in advance & sorry for my english! rolleyes.gif
