Mine is the one without speakers. The hardware should be the same. In fact, it still has the volume buttons, and they actually respond (power light blinks red), but there are no speakers to control, and there's no audio input jack.

Hmm, I wonder if it would be possible to add speakers to the Catleap/Shimian since the buttons seem to function

Then post the results for comparison? If you have an SLR handy, that would be even better, as we could definitively measure ghosting and input lag on the "overclocked" Catleap.
I would do it, but I don't even have a fast TN panel to compare it to.

This review did some pretty in depth testing of response times of the Catleap and even compared it to a large range of other monitors. GTG about 9ms isn't to terrible for an IPS but it isn't that great either. It is better then the Dell 27" I believe.

Holy crap. Did this thread get 70 pages in 24 hrs?

But.. yeah, it's that good. My Shimian is the bomb!

Good thing I have it set for 100 posts per page, makes it easier to read. But seriously, this is an amazing deal to hop on. I'm trying to see how I can justify this purchase..

I've been unemployed for a year now, and living on $200 a week unemployment and I'm having a hard time not buying the $396 Achieva! wink.gif

Gets harder with every person here posting how much they love theirs, even the ones with minor flaws.

Also, I think I found a wicked nice VESA stand I can use, for free. biggrin.gif
post #837 of 4784
yeah... this thread has grown exponentially... Almost at 1000 posts! biggrin.gif

Still loving my monitor biggrin.gif, too bad the IPSB models are risky with all the dust and stuff. I guess I was a lucky one to have only one tiny spec in the far top right corner that doesn't bother me at all

Hope i can convince you to do the right decision:

I had exactly $410 saved up and though that buying an amazing IPS monitor was crazy. For what reason I don't remember but I bough the monitor and while it was being shipped I though I was going to be filled with disappointment. I mean, it took me a few months to make that amount and to spill it all on an impulse buy I thought was pretty stupid. As soon as the monitor arrived I felt like I made so far the best purchase of 2012. The monitor makes my 22" ASUS monitor look like something that would be bundled with a $500 computer, its beautiful. Battlefield 3 has this "depth" to it that didn't exist before and similar to how you'd want to re-listen to you whole entire music library after getting a very nice new pair of expensive new headphones, I found myself replaying all my games and they all feel like I've been missing out before.
