Well, Thursdays meeting, they agreed that they would make these! What Im waiting for is, final Specs + price + Link where you can buy!
It will take about 1 month to manufacture!
the guy called "somethng" who is also posting, is my contact. So he is reading everything you suggest aswell!

For folks that have been hiding under a rock (or not reading the OP) here is more info on this - http://www.overclock.net/t/1225919/yamakasi-catleap-monitor-club/1430#post_16797012

My catleap Q270 from bigclotchcraft is already out for delivery by DHL today (bought mine on sunday evening and shipped on monday) - item is declared as gift with value of USD $100.
The route is S. Korea > Cincinnati, OH > Hamilton, ON.
Called DHL to check and yes I am charged $39 for tax! No wonder it cleared custom within 30 minutes, as usual these couriers (DHL and UPS) that I have experienced using their services would tag a huge amount of taxes w/o any details.

So I paid $337 + $39.07 = CAD ~$376 in total, hope monitor will arrive in good condition!

Now I guess time to purchase a decent desktop monitor mount from another seller who would ship with different courier.

So my Catleap's shipping status via the EMS link in the OP is "Customs Retention - Other"... I'm in the US. Is this normal? Do I need to contact anyone? Maybe I'm just worrying too much but please, someone who's experienced this either give me some peace of mind or let me know what I should do next... Thanks!

Went ahead and pulled the trigger on the Catleap from dcsamsungmall. thumb.gif

I am very tempted to order a PCBank alongside it, test them both and keep the one I like the most. I really don't know if that is worth the trouble though...

I think few folks from US also got the same message and it just normal. Just search that specific message in this forum.

This was the heart of my question; if you're connecting to a *display*, does thunderbolt offer any advantages over miniDP (the advantages of having a thunderbolt port on your computer are well understood, obviously) considering any thunderbolt port *should* be able to drive miniDP equally well.

The answer is - with the exception of display daisy-chaining (which I'm not sure that Mac screen even supports anyways), apparently not much wink.gif

I ordered my monitor on Saturday, received the monitor on Tuesday.

Ordered a Q270 SE from eBay Seller dcsamsungmall

Box arrived shipped with bubble wrap, everything looks in good cosmetic condition.

Only issue with the screen is there is a dead pixel in the center of the screen, besides that monitor works great however can not be overclocked.

Thanks for that, did you just play duty and no tax? Also how long did it take to recieve your item to the UK from the date you bought it?

The only fee was the VAT at 20% (20% of what though I'm not sure - it doesn't align with the price marked on the box, which doesn't align with what was paid on eBay - but the amount was about right)

It was shipped 10.45pm (I guess GMT, so Monday morning SK time) on the 18th from South Korea, arrived in London on the 22nd around 11am GMT.

eshiku,

As promised, I am writing this message from my girlfriend's XFX 6850 on the 3View PCBank PB2700 Super.

The XFX 6850 is completely compatible with this monitor and shows post and BIOS just fine. However, I am noticing some performance lag while doing nothing more than browsing the web. I built her machine very similar to mine, only with an Antec P183 case, motherboard sound (she doesn't care) and an XFX 6850. I also upgraded her very old OS drive to a Pyro 240GB SSD last week, so yeah, I doubt it's the rest of her system slowing anything down.

Also, slowdown does not occur while typing, only while scrolling web pages or resizing windows. This is what leads me to believe that the lag is GPU-performance-based, and it is definitely not ghosting. (Furthermore, without doing a real test, this does not appear to be input lag, since my 90WPM typing speed seems unaffected visually. I haven't tried a game yet, though)

In short, it'll work, but for proper performance you might want to get another 6850 on the cheap and run them together if your motherboard supports crossfire. I'm not saying I wouldn't be able to live with this -- it's really fine -- but the performance difference is noticeable between this and what things were on her Dell U2311 a moment ago. It's sort of like when you run an HD video on an old S775 machine. It works fine, but the experience is not as baby smooth as using a more modern machine.

I'll test this on my 7970 and 5770 when I get home.


This is the Catleap Club - not the PCBank Club - please post accordingly.  I understand you are using a similar panel, but PCBs differ across platforms apparently.  Thanks.

 

 


Hi yeah with it removed.. Thanks
