Could that be from part of the backlight LED not working properly? Try increasing brightness to 100% and then back down to a low level and check if it changes.

Any similar color problems with the Shimian monitors?

Its less noticeable on maximum brightness.

Man this post is getting outta control. I come back a day later and there's 50+ posts lately.

If this catleap ends up being able to legitimately handle 97hz I think I will most definitely snag one. I've been following this for a while now, and i'm even starting to get confused. Is there a reasonably priced Catleap available with more then just the DVI input? (and working OSD hopefully)

OmG 97hz, that is awesome, can that be confirmed someway? Can others with the catleap verify it, cause if they can I will get one.

I caved the pictures of the Catleap were too much to bear!!!!

Oh boy, now we're overclocking the monitors. If 97hz is possible then the claims of 120hz models several pages back wouldn't be too far off. Are the 120hz models with display port?

All this Catleap talk has me reconsidering going with that one over the Achieva Shimian now (I do like the Catleap style better but that big round foot for the base might be an issue).

I took the measurements and I'm going to cut some cardboard up to test fit and see how it goes. If that big round foot will fit, I may grab that one instead.

My heart is going to be in my throat from the moment I decide to order until it shows up and I turn it on while praying for no defects the whole way. tongue.gif

DP 1.2 certainly does have the bandwidth for it, so if you did pick up one of the higher end models with displayport... it might be possible? Maybe? But does it even have a DP 1.2 input?

Might also depend on whether the shimians can handle 97hz with some tweaking like the catleaps can...

TL;DR Mistakenly shipped order for a monitor even though they refunded me 2 days earlier

They gave me a refund because i wanted to buy dp version which was mispriced, but apparently they still shipped my monitor after the fact that they issued me a refund.
I just bought crossover though minarin shop.
Also am not going to be home when it arrives to reject it since i am school all day every weekday.
Canceled it on the 27th and got refund the same day, he shipped it on the 29th.
Shows that it was accepted through seoul as of the 29th
