I'm currently using the catleap with my macbook air. It feels just as good as the Apple cinema display!! biggrin.gif

However note that the Catleap model I'm using has an HDMI input.

I am about to pull the trigger on one of these monitors, but I am looking into the crossover monitor because it looks the best to me. But I have been reading for a while and it seems many users have at least one stuck pixel or more with crossover monitors. What is the best monitor to least likely get no stuck/dead pixels. I would get the catleap, but I hate the stand being so high and I read some tilt to the side as well. I want one with possibly no stuck pixels so which one should I get?

Have you looked at the "3View PCBank PB2700 Super" monitor? It has a zero dead pixel guarantee on the box.

I tried from Mini DisplayPort to Dual Link DVI on a Macbook Pro and it works perfectly.

The Achieva Shimaian lite arrived today.

Problem: The screen will not stay on. It fades out anywhere from a minute to five minutes of use. If I turn it off for 5 seconds and turn it back on it displays fine.

I've tried it with two different video cards so I know it's not the card. One was the hd5850 (which worked but no BIOS) and the other is a 8800 gts (typing with the display now).

What would you think it is?

Suggestions?

Links?

Sounds very strange...

Possibilities:

- It gets too hot and shuts itself off
- Electronics are loose and when you shake the monitor even a tiny bit, the cables / small parts fall out of place
- The DVI-D or power cable sucks
- The power brick sucks. Do you live in the US?

Any images of removing the bezel and reseating the signal cable (I searched but no luck).

But now it's been on for what?? 2hours 35 minutes. No issues. Silly to think it needs to 'warm up'

Cable is the shipped one in the box. (Have the Belkin off of Amazon ordered)

Don't have a volt meter but the brick feels mildly warm. No where near hot. Gave the monitor a shake and jiggled the video and power cable several times. It stayed on.

Not sure what to make of it.

In Atlanta Georgia.

Anyone know of a way to overclock the refresh rate on ATI cards, or is this possible only with nVidia? Google searches are turning up dry, and I see no option for custom refresh rates in Catalyst Control Center (nor in Windows 7 Enterprise display options). And yes, I unchecked the box for "show only compatible display modes" or whatever it says, but that didn't change anything.
