But yeah...most I've done is a 133hz vertical refresh rate with only minor screen issues, and only on some screens.
People may say 100hz to 120hz (or a stable 125hz in my case) is nothing...but a 25% increase in what I see? Yeah...my eyes like it. frown.gif

Also, movies/videos playback frame synchronization frown.gif

There may be some *perfect* units for yield reasons; similar to cut down unlockable CPU and graphics cards, if demand for A- panels exceeds the number of defective panels the manufacturer may opt to take a slight relative loss and sell A+ binned panels as A- units to still make a sale. Whether this happens in practice or not with LCD panels or not I have no idea; alternatively the defect is so small as to not be noticeable to you.

On average, the imperfections have been *very* minor. The prototypical panel in these things appears to be a unit that is free of dead/blind pixels and free of visible foreign objects, but has a bit of backlight bleed somewhere near the bottom of the screen.

Alternatively, some units have come through with a dead subpixel or two, or a tiny pixel-sized hair/fibre somewhere in the polarizer. Overall (especially at the given pixel sizes) the defects are *very* minor in general. If you get an average or better panel and you're complaining about the tiny amount of bleed or your one/two dead subpixels then this really isn't the monitor (or the price) for you.

To be fair the $400 monitors I've purchased from "reputable brands" like Dell and HP have also had backlight bleed.

That is why I rolled the dice with the Catleap because even a questionable used Apple Cinema Display was going to be $650 and it was over a year old..

Have a question. I have my 2 2B catleaps at 100hz stable. I run them off my asus dcii 580's sli OC at 935/ 1870. So i noticed when had only one off the monitors OC at 100hz and the other at 60hz, the card with the OC one would run at full 935 while the other card with the non oc monitor would throttlr down like normal unless i was doing something on that screen. Now that both monitors are at 100hz, both cards stay at the full OC the whole time. It doesnt bother me and temps have just gone up 2c when just doing light stuff and idleing, but i was wondering if that sounds normal?

Also if anyones interested in a 2C no-glass , ive got one just sitting here looking for a new home.

hypermatrix, are you using a custom dual link dvi cable? I have the same card and cannot hit 120hz above without getting minor artifacts. 133hz results in a blank screen. So maybe the korean cable is poor quality.

I thought that may have been it but I hit 125hz even after I swapped cables to the one supplied with the monitor. But better cable never hurts. Have you tried playing around with the manual timing settings? That usually fixes those extra lines and flash issues.

I don't wanna hear about ONLY being able to hit 125hz you monkeys!!!

Just realized as you were saying that 1440p Screen capturing would be faster than mech.HDDs. Finally, a real use for SSDs smile.gif
