Which I don't really care... hard to see dead pixels playing games, at least for me it is and I have 2 dead ones in a asus 1080p, so I imagine in a 1440p its harder to see them. I'll try to fix the BLB if that cenario really happens.

So is that seller to be avoided? I was looking at buying from them.

No, he is a great seller. Best for 2b catleap. My case is something apart.

Try to search for timings on 120hz.net or here and Let us know if you find something interesting. Good luck!

Wow, so this is pretty sneaky, man...
I wish I had seen this earlier, now I'm really disappointed, and I am not sure I can prove this....
this is the listing from ebay:

New YAMAKASI Catleap Q270 "2B Extreme OC" 120Hz 2560x1440 IPS Gaming PC Monitor

and in this detailed specs:

CATLEAP Q270 LED SE 2B EXTREME EDITION
LG S-IPS Panel LED *Glossy panel

Now..here's the weird part. When i first bought it there was no "SE" in there, and also the part about *glossy panel was not there. I know this because I had to verify that they indeed sent a glossy panel, so it seems they added that part in later.
Don't know what to do about this really.

Man this would really make my day if we could figure this one out.
As far as picture quality my catleap is outstanding, in my opinion it blows matte qnix panels out of the water. IPS has deeper blacks and more vibrant colors, and the glossy panel makes fonts and pictures a bit sharper. So I mean, I love the thing, but struggling with 96hz is not good enough for me.

@}SkOrPn--' what would it take for you to delve into this cable making business? wink.gif surely there must be some dudes over at 120hz who have the specifications on these things.

Yeah someone does for sure. I already have a source for the cheap Chinese versions such as what we already get with the monitors or the overclocked kits, but I want to push the quality to match the DVI cables we have.

I'm already in the business of making cables, that's what I've been doing for the past 20 or so years. These last few years its been custom usb cables for Kindle Fire devices.

If I can find a source for the connectors we need and really good wires individually shielded, plus the proper pins, I will look into it. Still not even sure this is a cable that can be built by hand, and not some machine. Lol the tcon board is certified by LG for 120hz so I have a feeling it is these lvds cables holding a lot of people back.

Got mine a couple days ago from 2560x1440.com. Chose non-pixel perfect version due to concerns that pixel perfect may have other panel imperfections that prevent from making the A grade. No dead pixels or other panel aberrations that I can tell. Although ordered Q270 2b, got the SE version. But it does have the 2b PCB since it OC's to 96hz easy. Cant make it to 120hz but no big deal. Will not try for 100-115hz since I want it in 24hz multiples, so 96hz is fine for me.

Definitely sure mine is not tempered glass because I can apply slight pressure near bottom of screen with fingernail and it is pliable, not hard. Anyone buying a catleap might require a colorimeter for calibration. Mine had a slight green tint to it which I corrected with a with a Colormunki Display device. Looks good now and measures very well. Cant say which I prefer, the Qnix or the Catleap, both are good. Also have a Yamakasi DS 270 (ah-ips) which imo has better IQ than both the Qnix or Catleap, just that it has poorer blacks and other issues that prevent it from being a good all-rounder. Anyway, happy with the catleap just not sure yet if it will replace the Qnix as my main display or not.

That makes me mad. I'm very sorry for the limited OC you're getting. I've never seen or heard of a SE Catleap 2B.
Can you screenshot the timings you are using? I'm hoping using CRU we can find some tighter timings and get you some more refresh.

Another SE... And yes the profiling does help quite a bit. Can rent a colorimeter for this for anyone interested.
Wanted to mention that for certain games I found 96/110 sort of refresh rates were causing problems with in game videos. Best example I know of is Tomb Raider. These videos are stuttery at any refresh rate that isn't a multiple of 30- so 90hz works great.
