That's actually pretty high. From the desk to the bottom of the panel itself the Shimian is 4.5", or a full inch lower.

So the Catleap can reach at least 97mhz and is a 27 inch 2560x1440 for 400 dollars? This sounds like an insanely good deal.

I'll try with my Shimian tonight....in just a few hours. Also, when using the EDID utility...i'd essentially be flashing the firmware of the monitor, correct? So if i want to reset to defaults...i just have to remember (write down) the default values, put them in, and flash it again? Am I correct in understanding that that's how that works, or no? Cause I thought doing that is forcing the monitor's firmware to have certain settings that function beyond the normal factory settings at the native res. (in this case, the ability to have a 70hz+ refresh rate while maintaining native 2560x1440 res without having to make it a custom res).

Yeah to be honest I'm not really sure this phoenix edid program even works properly. It doesn't seem to actually save the settings into the .dat file or something. It's really hard for me to figure out what's going on. For example when I create a custom .inf with toastyx's app, then import it into monitor asset manager to check it out, it shows the custom refresh rates added by his application inside of the program.

If I load that same edid data from the registry (is that right?) into the phoenix edid program, it does show the second refresh rate added (I can tell because under block 2 it shows the pixel clock at 261, which is what gives me 65hz), but then if I don't modify that file at all, and then save it... it doesn't save the settings into the .dat it creates - loading that .dat file into the monitor asset manager only shows the single display mode and not the 65hz one that it should have saved also.

edit; from what I can tell, it does not actually save those settings. If I load it again in phoenix after installing the driver I created, it just shows the old settings and not the new ones I set before.

So from the look of things CATLEAP is the best choice !

1) better stand!
2) VESA mount!
3) Can reach 97hz or maybe 100hz!
4) Better looking overall!
5) pay 20 dolloars more for speaker built in! for PS3//xbox// extra speakers to use

for Price of $439.90!!!! compare to DELL $800, HP $800.. ouch...America and our Corporate greed!

Bro can you confirm how's the S-IPS just as good as DELL or HP IPS???

http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/hazro_hz27wa.htm


"The HZ27WC unit which was sent to us for testing has had the factory calibration applied and so these are hopefully a more representative view of what you can expect from these screens out of the box."

"The HZ30Wi was a little better than the HZ27WB in this regard, but again the blur was slightly less noticeable on the HZ27WA/C which was positive."

The Shimian is the same panel as the HZ27WC

Does this mean the Shimian is factory calibrated?

It also seems that the Shimian has overdrive, which would mean it has less ghosting that the Catleap?

Well, the Dells I have are E-IPS with AG coating on them. They're the lower end IPS monitors, so obviously they don't compare to how nice this S-IPS non-AG panel looks. Everything is bright, crisp, and clear. No dead/stuck pixels either. thumb.gif
