Give me a break, and I'll gladly quit this forum along with Hyper if a mod (if it was indeed a mod) wants to come out of their cowardly hiding spot in order to take responsibility for this. I don't even know Hyper, but I'm not going to be part of a community that supports censorship because they can't handle a few curse words, either.

If you are interested in watching a lot of 1080p content, then just get a 1080p monitor. It will look better.

I don't know about blu-rays, but I've seen quite a bit of 1080p Youtube content, and while it looks great on my 55" 1080p Samsung TV, it looks bad on this 27" monitor at full screen. The reason is quite obvious, it's like that time when you first played an 800x600 game on a 1024x768 monitor; only that the difference in pixels is now far greater.

Everything else will look amazing, but videos with inferior resolution, not so much.

Im out on this monitor, im going to get a 32 inch panasonic vieta ips led 1080p tv, then i get the best of both worlds, for about same price as the catleap. Thanks for all the input, i think if i was a gamer i would get the catleap.
post #2384 of 11286
You can't say you have the best of both world when the TV is 1920*1080 and the catleap is 2560x1440, which is one of its main assets

I think he meant getting an S-IPS screen. If one has no real desire/need/use for 2560x1440 then a 1920x1080 32" TV with additional features/inputs would be the best of both worlds (depending on the price). However, I don't know why one would chose a Panasonic Viera (assuming it's a U3 with low input lag) if they didn't game as it lacks 4:4:4 and would make a mediocre monitor because of it. In that regard, it's not the best of both worlds and there are other TVs that would do a better job especially since the slight increase of input lag wouldn't mean anything. The best of both worlds is heavily dependent on perspective though . . .

I figured that guy meant the best of Mediocre World and Subpar Land, but whatever floats his boat, and if he's happy then that's all that matters thumb.gif

This is true but with high quality scaling (using the madVR renderer for example) it would actually look great.

What 32 inch led 1080p tv would u recommend for my situation ??????. I guess the 2560x1440 isnt really going to do me anygood for watching blu rays, hd tv, and general computing. Kinda a noob at this and trying to get information, i just know ips is something i need from reading, maybe catsleap makes a nice 1920x1080 ips monitor.

Would this monitor be good for watching blu rays on my computer ?, i have a ati radeon 5770 i just got, but from reading it wont power this monitor, what would you say is the minium ati card to use, how is the picture quality ? thanks for helping.
Can it be hooked up thru hdmi ?

I would rate mine a 9/10 and I own other high quality S-IPS monitors.

I don't know why this says a 5770 won't work...certainly if you want to play games you need something a lot more powerful.
They only have 1 DL DVI input, so no HDMI, but you should be able to use HDMI - DVI (even though it says you can't). Someone can confirm this.

Not true at all. I have my gpu handling scaling and 1080p content looks amazing.

I have compared 1080p TN panels to higher resolution, ie 2560x1600 and 2560x1440 S-IPS, the S-IPS looks FAR superior, there is no question which is the best.

Also, these monitors(2560x1440) maintain the same aspect ratio as 1080p, so no stretching of any kind happens when they are scaled up.

Hopefully you will stick around man! You have contributed a great amount to this thread and overclocking the 2b models.
Some of the rules might seem a bit silly but please dont take it personally!
