That test is for brightness and something is extremely jacked up with your monitor, its settings, or your video card's control panel if you can't see anymore than what you're seeing. Even this crappy, worn-out 930b with a TN panel can show down to box 2 (2%). Your contrast and gamma are also probably way off.

Which one exactly is the one with tempered glass and which sellers are ok to buy from? Was shipping free??? Let me know also it seems like the price of these monitors has gone down a little?

Are you sure you have the right DVI-D connector it should look like this:

Hi Otbreaker,

I have the cable looks like this:

http://www.tvcables.co.uk/images//items/3m-hdmi-to-dvi-cable.jpg

And I am confused when the monitor is on, when the led light at the front is blinking blue or when it is solid red (after I press the round button at the back)? Both cases my laptop can see the monitor.

Thank you

I got my Catleap Q270 in today and overall it is a good monitor.

Doesn't have the color gamut my Dell UltraSharp has and it suffers from some banding issues but I had zero stuck or dead pixels and overall the screen looks good. One good thing about it is that the response time is much better than my 3007wfp-HC, great for FPS.

I've got an adapter coming in the mail so I can use both of them with my 6950.

Overall I am happy with the purchase.

It's already Saturday afternoon in Korea.
I ordered mine from dream-seller on a Thursday at around 4PM Korean time. It was marked as shipped on the next Monday and got tracking number a day later.

I 've read quite a lot about this monitors and i am ready to pull the trigger i just have some questions i need to make before just to be sure.

My gpu is a gigabyte 8800gts 320mb. A review site stated that it's a dvi-i dual link. (i checked it last night but i don't remember by memory right now and i am not at home to check it out). It should be compatible right?

also obviously the card will be very weak for gaming on it. so i will probably be playing at 720p which is 1/4th of the native resolution. Will it be ok? I know the screens have no scaler so the image i assume would be streched covering the whole screen right? how would the image look at a such lower resolution? too blurry?

some people also said that their screen doesn't show anything during bios boot up. is there a definite answer why it happens to some people? can this be fixed somehow? Because you know booting into bios is usually very very handy in case something goes wrong with windows or for changing some stuff.

Some sellers offer some of their screens in separate listings with "pixel perfect" option. Has anyone gotten any of those? I am thinking about it because I am kinda anal about this kind of things but they are offered only for catleap models and I would kinda prefer an achieva or a crossover.

Thanks everybody.

Set my Catleap up today. Well pleased. It's going to be used as a monitor so I can review hardware at 2560x1440, not as a constant work machine (so it doesn't matter that it's 2ft above my eyeline!)

523948_10151451790975263_758195262_23623423_103261590_n.jpg

Looks like one dead pixel near the bottom. Have been able to get into BIOSes with Intel HD graphics, 5850s, 580s and will try 7970s later. Just hold down Del as the PC boots up thumb.gif
