That's weird. It shouldn't be all blank unless you deleted all the resolutions. Did you use the delete button next to the copy/paste buttons? That removes the EDID information from the registry. After rebooting, it should have reset to the default configuration.

If it's all blank after doing that, then the monitor is reporting an EDID with no resolutions, which is strange. If that's the case, try deleting the monitor again, then click OK and shut down the computer. Then unplug the monitor's power supply for 30 seconds, then plug it back in and turn the computer back on. I've seen monitors get confused in rare cases and that usually fixes it.

True, but what's left of the monitor once you don't include the boards to drive it is basically the LCD matrix itself, which is not even really a single "component" to fail anyways. It's pretty unusual for a panel itself to go bad without having some kind of physical trauma applied to it (meaning that you see bad panels in notebooks all the time wink.gif ) so a set of boards still covers a pretty large chunk of failures for a monitor like this, and probably the most likely ones too.

Ill rate mine about an 8/10. I have a bit more backlight bleed then normal (going to mess with the bezel to try and fix it), and the one dead pixel is noticeable only with white or really bright color behind it (because its simply a black dot). Its down in the lower left though, where I wont be looking except when I am using the start button or something.



The amount of extra "space" compared to 1080P is nuts. In the pics I have one with a browser of equal width on it and my 23in 1080P ASUS. The extra height is well more then I could have imagined as well.



I was scared of not having AG, but now that I see it, Ill never go back. Reflections arent an issue unless its all dark screen with a very bright room.



I did have it come on as a bunch of lines, but turned it off then back on, and it was fine. The first try I turned the PC on then monitor on. When it did the lines, the monitor was in sleep mode when I turned the PC on.



Packaging,

Could someone pls send me their EDID file for a Catleap Q270 SE to tom.meixner@gmail.com ?

(I guess since the panel is the same the others are also fine)

My Problem:

I only have a laptop at my disposal with a DisplayPort (Lenovo T520 with nvs 4200m). I tried using a active dual DP -> DVI adapter as well as a single DP -> DVI cable to connect the monitor however the panel always stays black no matter which resolution I choose. In windows I was at least able to get quick flicker but no image. I believe the EDID information might not get transmitted through the adapter/Cabel and I don't have a Desktop with DVI plugs system which I could use instead. (get-edid doesn't get information) At least in Linux I should be able to specify manually EDID file to use.

I hope this works and that the monitor is not broken .... :-S

I would like to thank ToastyX for his CRU program, not only have I overclocked my Catleap and other monitors with it, but also my laptop, got my Lenovo X120e to 97hz, smooth as butter.thumb.gif I believe he is the father of monitor overclocking and it will now be a new measure by which monitors will be judged.

For example: That's a great display, but it only goes to 67hz... ugh. If it went to at least 85hz, it would be money... 25hz from 60 is 25 more fps people, that's about 42% performance increase, and anything over 90 is greater than 50% performance increase. Were all about performance gain percentage wise here on OCN.cheers.gif

Anyone who ordered any time last week get a ridiculously high shipping estimate? Like over a month?

Is this OC'ed and if yes at what refresh?

Does input lag improve with higher OC?

Got my Catleap SE today from greensum. Ordered on Sunday 3/11 but only shipped 3/15. Still haven't checked the serial is a 2C3. Haven't had a chance to unpack it yet to check it out. The monitor came large EMSbox, with two smaller ones wedged on each side. No bubble wrap except as a topper and below. Hope the monitor survived the shipment. No obvious damage on the outside.

Just got my Catleap in today, it's a tempered glass without speakers from Green-sum. The stand sucks balls. However, I had planned for this and gotten myself an Ergotron MX monitor arm and that thing is a beast. Needed a few washers to get the right screw length, but it worked out. I have a 2B model (I ordered mine last Monday).

Comments...

It buzzes :-/ I was trying out the refresh rate tool, and it was buzzing like mad. I'm not sure that I'm getting the full 85hz outta the thing (I'm currently running an HD5770). It seems that I'm dropping frames?

I think I have a few dead subpixels around the panel, but they are not going to be bothering me. I have a piece of dust in the upper right hand corner, but that's my fault (I did open it up). When you open the monitor up, you expose the inside of the glass, so getting it out will be very possible although annoying.

On the internals side, my monitor came with two connections to the logic board; I presume this means 85hz is possible for me?

Anyhow, overall it is a beautiful screen. Perfect? No, not quite. But very good overall. Now to calibrate the thing. The only flaw with my particular panel is the buzzing. I will have to take it apart to see... it buzzes when I ran the full screen refresh rate tool. Seems to depend on what's running? Anyone else get buzzing?

Was about to congratulate you on the 2B, but the other issues suck. Maybe you can order a second and swap internals.

I OC'd it to 65hz fine. Doesn't go above that. Mine is a 2c model with one connection to the logic board. It's not an OC model. I tried 75hz and it failed. Hopefully we can buy new logic boards soon! I don't notice input lag on either 60 or 65hz. The overall experience with this monitor is vastly better to the Samsung 2493HM I was using.

I ordered the Ergotron MX myself... It will most likely be more sturdy than my desk is. lol.
