The Sakwa is an updated version of the 27QW which likely has better colour preset since Crossover usually improves their displays each year. The original version of the 27QW had low average gamma (1.9-2.0 average according to =DEAD='s review which I link to in my WCGT thread) while the multi-input versions averaged around 2.2 allowing them to display colours more vibrant and accurately.

It seemed like there where not many of the Sakwa monitors left anymore, I could not find any of the 27QW multi inputs either. Having deep blacks is important to me, and I really would like to avoid any glow as well. So I have decided to get the LG27MB85R. Hoping the glow will be minimal and the colors still vibrant being a "semi glossy" panel. Thank you very much for your help here it has been much appreciated, I will let you know what I think of the monitor when it arrives. smile.gif

Well, after almost 3.5 years of ownership, my Catleap seems to have finally bit the dust. I came home from work this morning and started up my computer, and only my secondary 900p monitor turned on. The catleap suffers from a blinking green light. I changed out the dual link dvi cable. I cycled power to it, I attempted to use another port, and nothing has succeeded. According to internets, I might be able to pull the thing apart and tighten some internals, but I won't have time to even try that for some time to come. I guess 3 years is decent for a monitor, though my secondary one has served faithfully since 2007.

Has anyone found out if we can convert this monitors DVI-D to HDMI?

Yeah, my Dell UltraSharp 1200p has served me since 2006, and it was mounted a full year inside the cab of a Semi Truck, lol. Still no issues what so ever with it but its also my secondary sitting next to my home-brewed Catleap. Hope you get it fixed or replaced easily.

Here is an option if your interested and OK with 60hz.
Buy this, its a new 1440p display, same kind as yours but intended for HP as a warranty replacement screen, and its only $105. It comes with a brand new SDDB Display (DP type) board already installed onto the display. You then just need a input board that will work with your new displays board.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-NEW-HP-Z1-AIO-WORKSTATION-LG-LCD-LM270WQ1-SD-DB-27-INCH-671197-001-/252040231711

Here is the DisplayPort input board that works with the SDDB that is attached to the display, and its only $73. This is how you will connect it to your computers DP port. This is the cheapest way to fix your 1440p that I know of. Sorry
http://www.ebay.com/itm/DP-Board-for-27inch-2560-1440-LM270WQ1-SDA2-SDC1-SDC2-LM270WQ1-SDDA-SDDB-/400995853736

And yes, finding/figuring out the proper mounting method for the input boards in your catleaps structure will be the real work.

Not that I am aware of. But using the info I gave above you can convert it to DisplayPort easy enough though but it will be 60hz only then. I guess you need it to be HDMI?

Yes, HDMI is preferred for the laptop I will be purchasing only has that output.

Yeah that is an expensive conversion type. I have never seen hardware for these 1440p's that is HDMI based. They were all DP or DVI based as far as I can tell.

In a rather crazy turn of events, it appears that my catleap is not, in fact, dead. That said, it will not work at all outside of safe mode when proper Nvidia drivers are installed on my GTX 670. I am perplexed, annoyed, and relieved all at the same time.

*edit*
I've got no idea what's going on. I've never seen anything even remotely like this. Usually a monitor just works, or it just doesn't.
My catleap shows the bios splash screen. In safe mode it displays a resolution of 1600x1200. I have a GTX 670 and an on-board Intel HD4000. Neither graphics card detects the monitor, or will display on it outside of safe mode.

I attempted to use the monitor on another computer that has an ATI/AMD graphics card, and it displayed nothing until the OS loaded, at which point it displayed a frozen(mostly, the 'installing driver' icon on the bottom right, for the mouse i'd plugged in, was moving) desktop. No keyboard inputs or mouse inputs worked. I'm at a complete and utter loss. I think the monitor is somehow half-dead. What a tease...

Buy a new dual DVI-D cable and try that. Also burn a live OS to usb and see if you can see the monitor then. Windows or Linux it wont matter.

By the way, that amd card and the monitor. It is perfectly normal for some cards to not show any video until the OS drivers load. I been using a 5870 this whole time and I have yet to see any video before the OS loads. That's why I keep my Dell connected so I can see the bios screen. Lol

If it does turn out to be dead, would love to see a pic of the TCON board and LVDS cable... be interested in buying them off you (as I'd assume it probably the controller board that's screwing up)
