MacBook Pro update

Was able to buy one of the Apple active mini-DP -> DVI-D / Dual-Link adapters at the Apple Store.. Works perfectly connecting my 17" MBP to the catleap. Looks _gorgeous_.

Only had it a few hours (the adapter), so we'll see about longevity since it has horrible reviews at Apple's site. If I were buying one out of my own pocket, I'd take a chance on the $69 one at monoprice.com

So bottom line, yes these work great with Macs, but an expensive adapter is required.

I bought the catleap but after a few stuck pixels im not really happy with it... Would like to hear some feedback from the crossover owners. Thinking about ordering one of those.

Dead pixels problem affecting ALL monitors from this manufacture. So the only option is Perfect Pixel, when seller guarantees clean screen without any black dots.

Actually a perfect screen to them is anything under 5 dead pixels. Which is far from a perfect screen.

Ok so the dead pixel thing, only noticeable on black/white screens or even when there is an image on the screen like bf3 or watching a movie.
Still havent pulled the trigger yet, gonna see if i should drop 400 on this or a put it towards a aria helmet >_<.

I don't think anyone has verified that purchasing the perfect pixel option has guaranteed a flawless display either.

Heck, i have yet to read a single post of someone who has received their monitor AND purchased the perfect pixel option.
And whether they had a flawless monitor.

I mean there has to be someone by now who paid the extra and has their monitor.

I'd would be nice to know.
Do you have any dead pixels?
Did you purchase the pixel perfect option?
Who did you order it from?

EDIT: In other words , i've seen zero evidence that purchasing the pixel perfect option has any effect at all over just "taking a chance" since both options seem to indicate 4 or less bad pixels is acceptable.

What are you talking about? My catleap came with 0 dead pixels. I went over it with a magnifying glass just to be anal, with both black and white backgrounds - not a single one.

Received my Catleap Q270 non-tempered basic model from dream-seller today. It was ordered 3/8/12.

Cons:
1 Stuck Pixel
Back plastic snapped off in shipping
Slight lean to monitor

Pros:
Received 2B version which runs at 97 Hz


Very happy with the monitor even with the stuck pixel. Ordered a second catleap today.

That is "Zero Defective" option, with "Perfect Pixel" some sellers are indicates that there is no dead pixels at all. Maybe i'm wrong...Hmm... I'm sure that i saw red message about it once.

I mean that every model can come with 0 to 5 dead pixels and it's normally for almost all monitors from this manufacture and all sellers on eBay.

Just got a counter offer from dcsamsungmall on his CrossOver with pivot stand.

1. $401.50 offer was autodeclined.
2. $410.00 offer was counteroffered with $418. --> I accepted this counteroffer.

I'll post my impressions when it arrives.
