Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 109

post #1081 of 10682
Thanks Scribby.

I didn't want to spend $125 sending it back to Korea without any confidence of a positive resolution. So I opened it up and voided the warranty!

I reconnected the three internal ribbon connectors and that made no difference. If you can verify that your brick is outputting 24V I will try to come up with a replacement and see if that helps.

This monitor was beautiful for the one day that it worked!

Got my Yamakasi Catleap Q270 LED Multi monitor [the one with extra video inputs]. Ordered it on 3/11, got it on 3/19. There are enough unboxing pictures so instead I just wanted to show how this monitor is capable of displaying PS3 at 1080p. Somebody mentioned it would not be possible because the monitor didn't have a scaler and to be honest, I'm not that technical when it comes to monitors nor did I research much on the topic but, wouldn't this prove otherwise? Sound off and tell me what you think. Also, apologies for the crappy quality of my pictures. My little MetroPCS cel its doing the best it can.

I purchased this monitor from dream-seller for $427.00 a week ago. Since then it has been creeping up and it sits at $499.00 as of this writing. The seller green-sum still had it at ~ $430 until today when he priced it up $100 more! YIKES! All in all, I'm pretty satisfied with the monitor. For the price it can't be beat. smile.gif Hope it helps those who are considering between models.

P.S.: Oh yeah, the speakers are not worth it on this thing. Of course I wasn't expecting Dolby here... tongue.gif

Greetings,
Thread stalker for about 2 weeks now. Actually I ordered first and then begun reading the original thread by Bruce. Ordered on May 4th (the imfamous Korean holiday weekend) from Green-Sum... Sent on May 6th, tracking number was available immediately, but the updating was horrible... I live in Europe and basically my update was "picked-up, handed over to air-carrier,.... and 13 days later with NO UPDATES, " arrived at destination airport"
Most worthless tracking ever tongue.gif
Anyway, let's get on with it...
yamakasi catleap vanilla. No glass/no speakers
Tilting is not too bad.
Wobbly as hell but not notice-ably crooked...
I have a 2C
I am not going to search for burnt/stuck pixels, so excuse me before hand. Others have described my state of mind on the matter. Either way if I am going to notice 4-5 pixels in 4million I might as well do it after I've spent some time enjoying this wonderful monitor. I 'm giving the monitor a "9" overall. I didn't want to mislead anybody thiniking I had a perfect panel or a defect-ridden one. Obviously to get a 9 is "seems" flawless. But as others stated, we know we are not getting "the good stuff", so I am fairly grounded on the whole issue. I just hope it lasts...

EDIT: Forgot to mention... NOTICEABLE BACKLIGHT BLEED. From what I've seen around same area as everybodys. Top of the screen near the center 2 small light sources create a bleeding in a black b/g... Of course not annoying, just thought I should mention it... Hadn't seen it when I rated the monitor with a "9"... That alone seems to justify 1 point off! biggrin.gif

I have a 5850 CF setup. Main is a sapphire ref design and both its DVI ports seem to be dual link because I get a picture with BOTH of them.
Using SUPPLIED CABLE
However...
I CANNOT SEE BIOS SCREEN... anyone else with this issue??
I have read the entire other thread over the course of waiting for my catleap, I remember people asking this, but I don't seem to recall any answer... sorry

I get a picture as soon as windows boots... with BOTH DVI ports of my 5850, until then... blinking green light and black screen...

Onto some jpegs. My previous screen in some of the pics is an LG 245WP (P-MVA panel) in portrait mode

The price on the catleap base model (dvi only) keeps dropping while the multi (hdmi) version keeps rising...

If you don't have one of the "supported video cards" listed in DreamSeller's listing, you will not be able to see the BIOS or initial windows startup screen at boot. Nothing will show until the video drivers are loaded. Keep a second monitor handy for if/when you need access to the BIOS.

See the bottom of this image. Not at home right now or I'd clip it out myself.

"Dear Mr. C W,
Thanks for your email.
I confirm again with our technical staff today, was told that the model with 2560x1440@120Hz has been stopped production from now on, since supporting 120Hz drive board that we used to import from South Korea can not be found now.
The model with 2560x1440@120Hz use the panel with LVDS Logic board which has two screen lines to connect the drive board and panel to achieve 120Hz refresh rate.
Now what we can supply is 2560x1440@60Hz, this model use the panel with DP logic board which has only one screen line and consequently support 60Hz.
I apologize for my mistake, I did not get the updating news from our technical department as I was busy with the preparing for the Canton Fair next month.
Attached is the panel data for your reference, hope it is helpful for you to make your decision.
Best regards,
Josh
"

Doesn't sound like our chances of finding the board are so good.

SirCharles, you sound like a realist.

Please give us your thoughts on how this monitor did for gaming. And please be more brief than just "It's simply amazing".


Thank you Sir

Poop. Well here's hoping, ya know?

@BBGunWB
Thanks for your answer. It seems my 5850 is among the ones that "can output" whatever that means biggrin.gif
So... what keeps it from.... output-ing?? tongue.gif


@SkyPC, sorry man, not too much of a gamer due to workload this time of year (hence the 2 doc pics tongue.gif) ...
I just fired up ME2 (loved mass effect 1 and did not play mass effect 2 until now so I figured since 3 is out, I might as well play 2... tongue.gif )
I also tried the Skyrim just to see how it looks on 1440p...
Hopefully I'll get a chance over the weekend to kill a couple of hours but I would think that 5850 CF without AA+AF would be fine. In the 10 mins I bothered with ME2+Skyrim i didn't see anything that would let me think otherwise....
