I just joined, but have been following this thread for a little while now, trying to make a choice on which model best suits me.

Does anyone else know more about the Catleap 2703? I started to narrow everything down to choosing that model, and was on the fence between that, and the Q270, but I recently emailed Bigclothcraft,
and got this response, which is not what I wanted to hear (although I'm not sure if it is correct/accurate).

"Hello
Almost same.
But 2703 use IPS Panel and Q270 use S-IPS model.
And 2703 has tempered glass.
About design, 2703 support VESA 100 x 100.
Thanks

- bigclothcraft"

Strange though, since someone else posted a picture of their 2703, and the front panel label says S-IPS. Although, it's hard to know with some of these monitors, since some come with speaker holes (and no speakers, etc).

Hoping to find out if anyone can verify the internals of the 2703 to see if it has the same LG panel as the rest...

They say S-IPS, but I am sure that they are all H-IPS. Unless we get a lot of people taking pictures of the pixel structure, I am going to assume they're H-IPS based on the few I've seen so far.

Not really sure how you even get that these are H-IPs, what makes you think that they are?

Their pixel structure. S-IPS has a very particular grid of <<<'s. H-IPS is more like vertical rectangular blocks. From the pictures I have seen of these monitors so far, they've got the latter structure.

Quick question:

I just received this monitor (qh270-lite), However, my computer is away (with 5850) and all I have is my work laptop, It only has hdmi-out. Is there a way for me to connect the laptop to this monitor? The main use will be with my desktop, however, I'd like to be able to hook up my work computer to extend the deskspace. I'm not overly concerned with what resolution i would have.

i dont think thats gonna work as it requires a stronger signal but you can try it out and let us know

I haven't tried this myself with this particular setup, but you can just buy a male dvi-d to male hdmi cable from Newegg: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812186012&nm_mc=OTC-FroogleNEW&cm_mmc=OTC-FroogleNEW-_-Cables+-+HDMI+Cables-_-Syba-_-12186012

Only $9 and has 5 star reviews...worth a try and if it doesn't work, you'll have gambled with less money than I just spend on my lunch.

Most notebook computers do not handle the native 1440p resolution that the stripped down (SE, Lite) qh270 panel displays require. They top out at 1080p generally. You'll need to review the on-board graphics specs closely to see what resolutions are supported. Most will say they support DP, HDMI, or Dual-DVI outputs, but the max resolution is still below the 2560x1440 required to drive these. The Multi-Input versions of these monitors that have an on-screen display(menu) and internal scaler work fine with notebooks though.
