The LG DM2780 is also a TV which i believe add more to the input lag.

Good to know. I'm very very very close to pulling the trigger on the Q27M LED Crossover with the scalar, so I'm trying to find any evidence of the non scalar vs scalar IPS's. The dynamic contrast is a really nice feature that I feel like I'd be missing out on with the non scalar models, plus the additional inputs are nice.

The dynamic contrast can be disabled, also. I wonder if this would affect the input lag?

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.
Actually red-cap does list Perfect Pixel monitors and it does state Perfect Pixels / No Dead Pixel.
It's listed as New YAMAKASI CATLEAP Q270 27" LED Perfect Pixel Dual Computer Monitor + Speaker

And i do recall seeing one listed with bold red letters stating zero dead pixels before also, or maybe it just stuck in our brains as red since it was a red-cap listing. biggrin.gif

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)

What country are you in and what shipping method did you use? EMS/Postal service or FedEx?

MTDEW +1! That's what i mean.It would be great to have a Multi input model with same Perfect Pixel bonus.

Can you compare with DVI, please? Hazro HZ27WC comes with ~8ms input lag, but it depends not only on the IPS panel. Soo better to have a real test result.

Therefore your statement that ALL monitors are affected by your fictional "dead pixels problem" is FALSE.
Or I'm just misinterpreting your bad engrish... Which is highly possible.

Every monitor of this manufacture can come with dead pixel. If your monitor is flawless, your are lucky! In high-end hardware there is about just 2% of flaw. But in Korea with lower quality control and A- class panels, that value is higher. So if you are not selecting the Perfect Pixel model, which only should come with no dead pixels in according to some seller's data, you will have a chance to get a little bit bad screen with some black\bright dots. "Zero Detect' option is just a some guarantee to have a 100% unbroken monitor (i mean unbroken stand, case, glass...) with up to 5 dead pixels.

Hey there, I'm thinking about getting a CatLeap - does anyone know if it has a standby mode? (ie does it shut the screen off after a certain period) Sorry if that's a daft question...
post #2597 of 4784
Would you recommend paying extra for a Perfect Pixel model?
Edit, I want the Catleap with no glass and speakers.

Well, I know it goes off after while on my rig. I would assume that's controlled more with Windows options than the monitor itself.

Here is one of the stickers from the earlier batch of Catleap monitors from the catleap monitor club thread.

450

And here is the the sticker from G4Gunner's Catleap.

337


The additional information on the sticker in the second picture that reads "For evaluation use only. No guarantee for service after evaluation." , is at least to me a strong indicator that this is indeed a tester panel. And if you think about it from a sellers perspective it isnt really that suprising as they would be able to buy this for a lower price and in the end make a larger profit on it. But for the buyer it could be a cause for concern if you are worried about the consistency and lifetime of the product you just bought.

Actually, if you look at the first pic, you can also see it is a sticker on a sticker. What are they covering up? In fact, it looks like a non eval sticker might have been placed on top of one that was there. If you look the other symbols under the LG Display wording are in the same place on the understicker in the first pic, and the regular sticker in the other. Perhaps the top one was an eval version that PASSED, thus getting the newer sticker. Hmm, inquiring minds want to know. wink.gif

I'll be cracking my Catleap open on Tuesday probably, so I'll take a look and snap some pics as well. Interested to see if a member had that first sticker, and could possibly take a look at it and see.
