Yeah, If I noticed dcsamsungmall was selling the Crossover I would have ordered from him. Who know's how long mine will take via dream-seller. It's ok though, im patient.

Guys read

My catleap has been perfect but from day one i have overclock to 66hz. I have had no mayor problem but when playing battefield the loading screen would not show. i had to turn off and on he monitor a few times to get it to display the image. Same thing when i exit the game. This does not happens while playing at 60hz. So in my case this is a small bug for running higher hz.

Ok, here is a bunch of pictures of the stuck pixels and dust. I couldnt capture a lot of it, and circled some of them. The burn in is extraordinarily difficult to capture, but I'll give it awhile and hope it will be strong enough to catch on this camera later.

Just wanted to post my experience so far.

I ordered on 28/2 and got my monitor today (dream-seller).
Maybe shipping to Europe takes longer, but I paid no customs, so that's good.
I got a Shimian (LITE), no glass or speakers.
Great image, but glossy and many reflections.
No burned pixels from what I can tell.

All in all, quite happy. Thanks Bruce for the find, +rep.

Also ordered my 7970 OC today. Maybe the only single card that can push 3.6+ million pixels comfortably.

Can't wait to play Mass Effect 3 (and finish the trilogy)

Yikes, I'd try and see if the seller will pay the return postage to get it replaced.

Ordered the 3VIEW from dream-seller on March 15th... will post again when it gets here.
post #2557 of 4784
Ill be talking to him shortly.

I ran a bunch of the tests on http://www.lagom.nl/ and compared it to my previous monitor... WOW.

The image quality is truly amazing. In all the tests I would have rated it as spot on or just shy of that. Just sucks that it had to have all of these other defects.



I think this post got lost as it was the last one on the page, so I'll ask again -- can some other users of the Q270/QH270 check if they have any burn in?
post #2558 of 4784
Hey dude, please let us know how the talk went about the shipping costs.


We're very much interested.

Thanks

I have started a poll for Catleap owners regarding whether they would be interested in buying the PCBs and cables to OC their monitors.  I have a couple of emails back and forth with a potential supplier of the parts and want to gauge interest.

 

On Monday, I will be tearing apart my OC and non-OC monitors to swap internals to make sure we can just do a simple PCB swap to get a non-OC panel to OC.  Results will be posted in the Catleap Club.

 

 

If you are interested in purchasing the PCBs and cabling to OC your monitor - please select ALL price points you would spend to do so.


This way it gives me an idea where I need to try and haggle volume pricing at with the supplier (or even if I can get all the parts in at the desired price points.)


Thanks!

 

EDIT:  The PCB switch may be possible for the Achievas and Crossovers.  Take a look at the first post in the club for shots of an OC monitor's internals.  I would like to see the internals for the Achievas and Crossovers to compare to the non-OC monitors to see if a PCB swap would work for those as well.  Since all of the models appear to use some variant of the same panel swapping out 2 PCBs and new cables might get them to OC to 97-100hz.
