Has anyone gotten the Potalion one to work with a MacBook Air?

Should I go for it? It should work with the mini display port to dual link dvi adapter, right?

I would say do your research before trying to buy one of these for your MBA, I just did a little Google search and the first link was to a forum post MBA giving a black screen when hooked up to a Dell U2711, which is basically the same monitor.

There are people on this forum that have gotten the Shimian and the Catleap working with the 2011 MacBook Air.

Just wondering if anyone has gotten the Potalion with a mac, yet? I asked BCC and the seller said it is the same as the Shimian except the design is different.

Got the Potalion from bigclothcraft. Took two days to ship and DHL made it OVERNIGHT from S. Korea to my door. The monitor is perfect, zero complaints. Should have gotten one or two more smile.gif

I actually dont think the stand is bad. It's cheap, but it works. Swivels and tilts forward and back. Not much more I can ask for.

Mine is wobbly, but not unsafe. And check your tilt again... mine certainly tilts! Hold the base and give the monitor a push or pull, it tilts 5degrees or so each direction. Its perfect for me.

Hey Guys! I got my Catleap Q270 SE (no glass or speakers version (I haven't had enough time to take pictures, I'll probably be getting to that during the weekend since I don't have time right now). I hooked it up, initially with out the power, and it automatically gave me a bsod error 0x124 which is a hardware error caused by busted hardware, incompatible hardware/drivers, "borked" drivers (not all folks agree with this one). I do not have a DVI port on my laptop but an hdmi so I used a duallink-dvi to hdmi cable to hook it up. I plugged this into another laptop of lower calibre (I believe) and it did not error what so ever. That laptop could not handle 1440p but did recognize the monitor. I'm not sure if it installed drivers automatically or not. I will be testing it on a higher-calibre desktop later on when i have time ( probably tomorrow) My video card is a 540m nvidia (not dedicated) and a dedicated intel graphics 3k. This may not be able to handle 1440p ( which will be unfortunate) but it shouldnt error like so.

I just wanted to see if anyone else got this error and going through 400 pages is too much a task when you dont much time. If anyone could help or has any information to offer, that would be great. Thanks!

my Potalion is gonna be checked within the next 3 business days thumb.gif I hope I'm as lucky as you guys. Although with the Perfect Pixel listing I'm less worried wink.gif


Asked him to check for the blue tint as well and he said don't worry about that; they're going to check for "serious condition"

Got my Potalion in. Great monitor except for Holy Lightbleed! Things look great when there's stuff going on on the screen, but when it gets dark this is probably the worst lightbleed I've seen. I had the zero dead pixel warranty and as stated there are no dead, no bright, or no stuck pixels at all. I am slightly dissapointed with how much light bleed this thing has though.

Most really bad light bleed light that is due to pressure on the panel. Give it a few weeks to improve (tight packaging can be a cause of this), if it doesn't you just might need to loosen that bezel just a tab (like a quarter turn of a screw all around).

If it doesn't fix itself in a few weeks, try to loose the bezel, if that doesn't work it'll need warranty work, because thats a unusually large amount of bleedthrough.
