Can you see the backlight pulsate because it is so slow? Does the backlight flicker improve once the monitor has warmed up?
Can't wait for the backlight bleed pics.
How does the ghosting compare to other 27in monitors?
Surprised at the Catleap feedback because it "looks" so much more polished than the Shimian.
It leans about 1/4" when measuring edge to edge. I tried pushing it to the left but it doesn't help.
My comment about the backlight was actually a pro, not a con. It doesn't flicker more than a CCFL monitor.
The pixel response times seem typical of an IPS panel without overdrive.
85 Hz proof pics (catleap):
I set the camera's shutter speed to 1/10th of a second and took pictures at 60 Hz and 85 Hz.
I used Refresh Rate Multitool
, which is a program that synchronizes with the monitor's refresh rate and draws a bar moving from left to right once per frame.
Notice how more bars are drawn in the same amount of time at 85 Hz, and no bars are skipped.
I also did the old mouse cursor test:
Notice how more cursors are drawn in the same amount of time with less spacing between each cursor. The movement is perfectly smooth with no skipped frames.
Note: If you do the cursor test, make sure to use a 1000 Hz or 500 Hz mouse, otherwise it may look like it's skipping due to mismatched rates.
For reference, this is how skipped frames look like:
This is the real deal. It can actually do higher refresh rates properly, and NVIDIA users might be able to get more than 85 Hz if the pixel clock is not limited to 330 MHz.
The 97 Hz limit seems to be due to the pixel clock hitting the DAC limit of 400 MHz. I bet it could hit 100 Hz if the timing parameters were bumped down a bit, but I don't have an NVIDIA card to test this with.
