I like the Catleap design and looks. Still thinking about it, really want to upgrade from my Sony 23" LCD (MVA).

I'm guessing no simply based on how barebones these things are. But that's just a hunch.

I'm betting 275-325, with the 7870's going for 350-400, given the pricing of the 7950s and 7970s right now.

Hi, great thread and forum. Before I get one of these, does anyone know if they are likely to have been factory calibrated, like the Hazro HZ27WC apparently is? Do the colours look very natural in terms of grass, face tones, sky etc?
The tftcentral review mentions the HZ27WA is uncalibrated while the "C" is, the "C" is the one with just dual-link DVI and no OSD.

97hz on native resolution

no dead pixels as far as I can tell, however there is a slight color temperature shift towards the bottom of the screen which only seems to affect white (white turns a little beige).

also the glare is much easier on the eyes than apple screens which are glass reinforced (compared with macbook pro).

regarding OSD, there is none only a simple brightness up and down.

Hmm intersting... that's a 97hz monitor... didnt know any exist lol. Then again I don't have much knowledge of monitors
post #585 of 4784
Wait, these IPS panels (the Catleap and Shimian use the same one) have a refresh rate of 97hz?! Lolwut...that would be a crazy bonus...sure, vsynced 60FPS is already smooth for me...but a 2560x1440 IPS @ higher than 60hz?! At almost 100hz to boot?! Are you sure that's right @ native res? Can you run afterburner OSD with VSYNC on and see what the FPS is like? I have my doubts but this would be HUGE if true...

Yes 97hz at native res, won't do 98 however. Definitely feels a lot smoother than my old Dell 2407-hc which could only push up to 63hz on normal DVI.

So you had to create a custom resolution in the nVidia control panel to get it to run at 97hz, right? It didn't have that option by default? I've heard that some monitors will accept a higher frequency but then end up dropping the extra frames, can you tell if that's occurring? I'd assume that would cause stuttering in games, and I think there was a program to test it over on HardForums.

Also, is the color shift near the bottom very noticeable, or is it something that's pretty easily ignored?
post #588 of 4784
60hz by default and when locked to 60 via vsync there is tearing suprisingly. On 97hz with no vsync things are smooth.

Color shift is noticeable when browsing white pages such as wikipedia and this forum to a lesser degree on the bottom 1/3 of the panel. However it doesn't seem to affect any other colors. Full screen red/blue/green look quite uniform.

Just ask him. He's included some 30" monitors already, and with this massive spike in demand, I'm sure he'll put it up.

Amazing for gaming. It's a nice screen, but no better than any 1080p IPS for movies, as there's no 1440p source.

Sorry, tapatalk didn't show the image. I may put it the source if anyone gets a monitor from this guy.

I'll see if they're worth embedding in the 1st post.

No worse than any LCD. I watched a bit of the Dark Knight on blu-ray, and it looked just fine/

I suspect this too. Don't lose all faith in dcSamsungMall: it may be Achieva for all we know.

Yay, the first Catleap pics.

And 97hz? I know 2048x1536@85hz is possible over VGA, this is roughly 33% more bandwidth, which seems reasonable for dual link DVI. Fire up MSI afterburner, check the framerate. If this is legit, this Catleap is about to get VERY, very popular here on OCN.
