Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 1025

post #10241 of 11304
I'm confused, aren't there more than 5 versions of the Catleap Q270?

Is there any more information on these ones:

Yamakasi Q270 JUPITER (has DISPLAYPORT and HDMI)

This one isn't a Catleap, it's a Jupiter, but it's still Q270 and it looks pretty much identical, is this basically a Catleap Q270 except that it has displayport and hdmi added?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-YAMAKASI-Q270-JUPITER-LED-27-HDMI-2560X1440-DP-DVI-D-SUB-Computer-Monitor-/111287031343?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item19e939562f


Yamakasi Q270 CATLEAP SE (but in the photos it seems this one has DISPLAYPORT and HDMI, unlike any of the 5 listed in the versions?)

Isn't this a Catleap Q270 SE, except it has displayport and hdmi too? Or is the photo wrong and it doesn't have DP / HDMI?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-YAMAKASI-CATLEAP-Q270-LED-SE-27-2560X1440-WQHD-DVI-D-Dual-Computer-Monitor-/120911008070?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c26db9146

Is there even any difference between these 2 monitors? (besides maybe the Jupiter has speakers and the SE doesn't)

++++
I heard that the "MULTI" ones have input lag, what exactly causes this? Is it just that the MULTI model has input lag, or is it only when it's connected through HDMI 1.4 that there's input lag? Is there pretty much a rule that we shouldn't connect these 1440p monitors with hdmi 1.4?

Are the 2 monitors above considered "MULTI"? I know the regular "MULTI" ones have HDMI + Dual Link DVI, but these ones have DISPLAYPORT + HDMI + Dual LInk DVI. If I'm connecting through DISPLAYPORT, will I still have input lag? (I'm assuming that HDMI 1.4 is the source of lag)

Which one should I get? I need a monitor with displayport or hdmi 1.4 support because I have an Asus ROG laptop that only has displayport / thunderbolt (and I don't want to buy the DL DVI to displayport active adapter that costs $100)

Thanks guys!!

An additional note to my issue, it seems to only affect videos in a web browser. If I download a video that won't play in the browser, it will play in Media Player Classic. Again, it plays fine in the browser before running the patcher.

Hello there,

I am reading this thread for a week, and i just received mine new Yamakasi Catleap Q270 2B Extreme OC.

I managed to go up to 110hz with some screen flashes every some random minutes, anyway, everything works cool at 100hz. I am ok with this.

The only problem i noticed so far is the youtube & vimeo videos. Even with 'allow hardware acceleration' to OFF, videos from youtube have crappy performance, like frames are missing or what. At vimeo, there is no playback at all.

Anyone had this issue too? Is there any way to fix that maybe?

Thanks for all information shared so far!

Just out of curiosity, why are catleaps now $550+ on ebay? What happened? When I bought mine 2 years ago it was $330 shipped from korea!

It's all about the craze man. They used to be a lot cheaper when I got mine for around $150. Soon they got popular from threads like these and just jacked the prices up

Makes no sense. The IPS displays at monoprice are $300, and the ones with display port are $350 on sale. Additionally, the PLS monitors are $250 regularly. What makes the catleaps so special? Am I missing something?

Nope, just hype at this point. Catleaps are the most popular one sold so they charge more for it. Eventually I'm sure the price will go back down when they realize people find other cheaper options. But most people will google this type of monitor and see Catleap higher up and buy those first.

I was told by my contact at computer market here in busan that the company had stopped producing monitors or these models. I was looking for 2 more. But it explain why even here in korea I can't find the black q270. I can find some white models but they are way more than other ips brands. Luckily I was able to snag 2 used ones for a hundred a piece.

The 500$ models on e-bay, are guaranteed overclocking panels, up to 120hz, plus perfect pixel. This is the difference.

The guaranteed overclocking models are $650. No other Catleaps at the moment are overclockable to any meaningful refresh rate.
