Just got my catleap se today and I`m really disappointed as it has anti glare coating on it. Am I missing something I thought that all catleaps comes without AG ? I got it from dcsamsungmall and its c2 version. Other than that it is perfect not even single bad pixel and almost no color temperature shift.

Nice photos. Good representation of the product.

Someone on the Something Awful forums also reported getting a matte version from dcsamsungmall:

I'd contact the seller about it. They're all supposed to be glossy.

Actually motion resolution is mostly dependent on the hold time of each frame. By increasing the refresh rate, the hold time is reduced, causing less blurring on the retina when tracking motion across the screen, thus resulting in increased motion resolution. In order to achieve short hold times though you need a very quick response time though otherwise too much of the hold time is spent changing the pixel to the next colour. In other words, quick response time is pointless unless the hold time of each frame is low enough (approximately 1-6ms hold time per frame is optimal, as per CRT and plasma).

People say matte IPS aren't grainy and the coating does not effect the picture quality, including CRT owners, lol. Pounds of Salt thumb.gif

The BenQ's, like the new Samsung displays use semi-glossy coating. I have never read about an LG display with semi-glossy coating's so I am 99% sure that the Yamaski's are not semi-glossy, especially based off of that picture.

Maybe Yamakasi are putting it on themselves?

You shouldn't have to look in the daylight. It will be noticeable on any lighting with a white background. Or any single colour background.

I cannot believe this. First they take away 100hz capability, now they add a matte coating. What are they trying to do ruin the product?

Yeah so I was completely unable to OC my Catleap anywhere past 60hz. Couldn't even get 65hz to work, but perhaps it was the fact that I was using a 7970, or perhaps because I don't have the correct manual timings to do so.

Can some of you list your timings for front porch/back porch/etc? Would be great to be able to try my monitor with those timings.

I'm going to test this monitor on an older 5870 tomorrow and see if the video cards are the problem.

Thanks

Hi, ****

Actually, Factory makes 2 types. Glossy and matte.

And Q270 from us (green-sum) are now 98% glossy.

In Feb, they were 50% glossy and 50% matte.

And, we didn't talk about glossy or matte, if someone requested, we changed that.

We couldn't know what people prefer.

Your item should be glossy, it manufactured in March.

Thanks.

Huge relief smile.gif

Ok but what about the 2%? Factory put the wrong product in? Maybe they ran out of glossy stock and used matte to fill the order?
