I can buy Q270IPSMS for 350$, and Q270IPSB for 250$. I looked the chart
and saw that the differences are:
- Q270IPSMS has more ports (HDMI, VGA, Audio, etc) - this is the
selling point to me because I want to use it with my XBox 360
- It is claimed to be 10 bit, which I believe 8bit+A-FRC. I think
that they would as same as HZ27WA and HZ27WC (if not identical, they
should be very familiar).
My questions are:
- Is my assumption (about Harzo) correct?
- Does 8-bit + AFRC provide better image quality? I read review on
tftcentral.co.uk and saw that 8bit AFRC comes with drawbacks (such as
higher lag), but the uniformity is better.
- How the massive 2560x1440 resolution works on Xbox (which only support
up to 1080p over HDMI)
- In sprite of the risks (dead pixels, etc), is this a worthy upgrade
over Dell U2412M? I just bought one a month ago. tongue.gif
Thank you very much! Hopefully I'll join the leage soon biggrin.gif

It works on a ps3, which has been confirmed (I think, atleast).
It's going to look like complete sh­­­­­­­­it, though.

Achieva Shimian QH270-lite

Ok so the "lite" means it is without Tempered Glass right?

PS3 looks great so far on my Catleap q270 multi. I'm sure it would look bad on the models that don't have a scaler though.

Hey guys. First time poster here. After seeing this epic thread I am leaning towards getting one of these Korean monitors. I don't usually go for expensive unknown brand electronics but with all the positive feedback here I feel much more comfortable making the purchase. I just have a few questions:

I'm debating between the Catleap and the Crossover. I'm planning to use the monitor for PC and xbox / PS3. Been hearing about the input lag on the multi input versions so I think I'll go with the dual-link DVI. I just want to know how I'll be able to hook up both my PC and xbox to run through the DVI input? Can I get a DVI / HDMI switch box? Is there even a dual link DVI switch box? I just want a relatively cheap option since it would defeat the purpose if I have to spend $200-$300 just to get everything to work. Oh, and I definitely do not want to do VGA biggrin.gif

Also, I been reading that xbox and PS3 games will look like crap on a 1440P monitor. Is it THAT bad? Can anyone who has one verify this? Thanks!

Is the input lag very noticeable?

Just received it today so I need to do more testing.

First post here. Does anyone have any experience of ordering one of these monitors to the UK (charges involved)? Considering ordering one, if I make the plunge I'll post my experiences.

Not sure if any of these have been addressed already, but I've a few general queries:
- With regards to dust behind the screen on the glass models, is it possible to get access to clean it? On the Catleap it seems possible to separate the bezels and remove the panel from its housing.
- Anyone had any experience with the $60 zero-defect tests, and still receiving dead pixels/flawed screens?

My experience as posted in the catleap thread: http://www.overclock.net/t/1225919/yamakasi-catleap-monitor-club/600#post_16707413

The item was declared for $30 and got away with no customs delays or charges but I think I was extremely lucky as I've very often had to pay customs charges.

I payed, with danish rates,

395$ monitor
+ 51$ Toll (13%)
+ 98$ Tax (25%)
+ 30$ Toll Fee.

About 574$ in total for one monitor.
