Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 272

post #2711 of 11285
Im kinda new to this stuff, but would a 27" Yamakasi work with my acer laptop? I definetely need an external 24 or 27 display for poker. The acer has a nvidia 540m if that matters.

What are you using for a stand/wall mount? Could you take some pics? I'm collecting info on this. TY.

I have a few questions though:
1. Your best of buying a pixel perfect as then they check for any dead pixels and you shouldnt have any? Also i head the perfect pixel gives me a different sort of pcb? the OC thing? so is that guaranteed 100hz??
2. I think i will buy from bigclothcraft? whats the difference between:
Perfect Pixel - Yamakasi Catleap Q270 27" LED (with speakers) at £270.17 and Perfect Pixel - Yamakasi Catleap Q270 SE 27" LED (without speakers) @ £281 booth on big cloth craft.
So can someone please advise on what monitor to get ? with speakers without speakers with glass without glass?? perfect pixel normal? etc?

Pixel perfect only means the monitor is checked against their deadpixel policy. It doesn't mean they have no dead pixels. Folks that did the pixel perfect got deadpixels and lots of folks w/o pixel perfect got perfect monitors. Check out the OP for the list of what people got and role the dice (for or against paying the extra $$).

If you want/need 100Hz either buy a catleap and upgrade with the boards or buy this in about a month - http://www.overclock.net/t/1232084/yamakasi-catleap-q270-100hz-guaranteed

Share more about what your planning to do and then folks can help you. Speakers are supposed to be crappy on the catleap and when was the last time someone actually used their monitor speakers when spending $350 on a monitor, not to mention joining a forum called OC.net. wink.gif The glass models are for folks that need to protect their screens from kids, net cafe customers, etc. I prefer no glass, since that is just another layer on top of the screen, but it is a preference thing.

It is from a company called Anyarm, think a Korean company. I ordered it off gmarket. Here is the link to where I bought it (has pics/info). I got it with a C-clamp. http://english.gmarket.co.kr/challenge/neo_goods/goods.asp?goodscode=190505263

What kind of video outputs does it have? You'll need either a dual-link DVI connector (not HDMI) or a displayport (or miniDP) with an active adapter (~$100)

Yes. the value after the dash with DVI conenctors simply refers to if it's digital-only (D), both analog and digital (I) or analog only (very rare, A). So long as it's a dual-link DVI port it'll work fine.

Thanks man that's what I was looking for thumb.gif .
Do you know if they managed it with any hack or extra accessory or did they ran it out of the box?

Not sure. See the spreadsheets on page1 to see what video cards owners are using.

Does anybody here have the Q27 multi with hdmi ?
post #2719 of 11285
I have no idea, but I am not going to question it.
Finally got it working after tons of troubleshooting.

I have random notes of what didn't work, what I did wrong etc, so Ima put em all down for future users.

Take your time getting the bezel off, and be extremely careful around the power button. Be patient and don't strip a screw and have to use a drill to get it out frown.gif

I am currently running catalyst 11.8 because it's the only stable version that wants to work. AMD drivers are horrible, I got tons of errors with downloading the latest drivers and had to install net. framework that didn't help at all so today I learned 11.8 works with the catleaps.

I managed to break my power connector to the panel with all the buttons, I don't think it was properly mounted, it came off too easy. Anyway you really don't need it. My monitor stays on no matter what, I could jerry-rig it, with some tape and what not to hold it in place but It wouldn't look cleanly and if I tried to wedge it in there, my tempered glass bezel will not fill.

So at first my computer didn't recognize the catleap at all, finally it did, and when it did I got an error message saying it was unable to save display settings. I unhooked everything off my PC, including the PSU cables, moved it downstairs ( for the sake of convenience). Plugged everything back in and boom got an image. A buddy of mine said unhooking my PSU on my computer probably flushed the mobo out, or any other hardware. Something technical to do with stored up useless energy, idk either way it worked!

Colors look amazing, is there a decent calibration tool to use with this? I would like to see if it could get even better!. My brightness settings seem perfect for my eyes at the moment, and at night if it bothers me I can always go through my catalyst control center to tone down the brightness.

EDIT: I don't notice any dead pixels from an arms length away. Bought mine from green-sum, fast shipping, good packaging just a little rough start. thumb.gif
Happy weekend!

I got my third one today; ordered on April 11, received today. My only issue? It's got no AG coating, and my other two do redface.gif. So if anyone out there has one with no dead-pixels and an AG coating and they wish to swap, PM me.
