post #2901 of 11286
which catleap though? There are 5 different versions? I believe the FAQ says they all use the same panel but are any of them slighly better due to input lag or glare, etc for gaming?

Well there are really just 2 models. Multi-input, and dual-link dvi only input. The rest is just SE = No speakers. Tempered Glass = Same monitor but with glass glued on it. I've heard some of the Multi inputs can still be OC'd, but they also have a bit more input lag (though I haven't heard anyone mention they can tell the difference)

I was going to build a custom stand for 3 in portrait mode for a friend, but Houston we have a slight problem.  The panels are super slim and the mounting points would make these real tight to each other, EXCEPT, there is the 1/2" or so LED bottom on these screens so while 2 would be nice and tight, the third would have an awkward distance if you didn't overlap it.  

 

From what I can tell by placing his three up in my little jig I made there is no way to solve this issue so he is going with a different setup.  He didn't like how the third would overlap and kill the smoothness of the screens in the arc.  Of course I told him we could increase the gaps, but he loved them so close that having the larger gap killed it.  Fine by me - less work!

 

 


Hi yeah I noticed this before I got them, I just hope when I remove the bezel it will be the same size on all four corners.. If no back to landscape..

I will post pictures when done.

I can't wait for 2560x1440 in BF3 but I'm pretty sure I'm going to have to tone down the settings using my GTX 570.

Just did the same. Hopefully the cable that comes with it isn't crap. I have a cable that came with my Dell u2412m though, I think its DVI-dual. Not sure. We'll see how fast dcsamsungmall ships for me on today's order! thumb.gif God, 2460 res is going to be nutters

Just got mine. I had been waiting it for 2 weeks almost! I read here that somebody in USA got theirs in 36-48 hours after placing the order. It's incredible crazy fast delivery, I guess my screen was being carried by hands all the way long:-), however it's Russian EMS service. I bought mine from dream seller, the original box was just wrapped in 2 layers of air bubble film. It's 2C of course. Good news: no damage, no dead/stuck pixels, no backlight bleeding, no green tint, no taxes. Bad news: there are two tiny spots (2-3 pixel size) just under the central area of the screen. Does anybody have anything like that? My display is non tempered glass so the spots are apparently on the inner layers of the screen. I can distinguish them only on a white background. I have to get used to not seeing them. The second bad news that the screen has a noticeable uneven backlight on the minimal level of brightness. The left half of the the screen is more dimmer than the right one. Increasing the brightness on 2-3 steps eliminates the difference. AFAIK each Catleap has this flaw. In my case it is not as bad as on that pic posted here before http://cdn.overclock.net/6/6d/600x450px-LL-6d1bb4a7_Snapshot_20120404.jpeg
Nevertheless it's noticeable and I hate that. I know there is a way to get rid of it but my soldering skills are almost zero. I have to increase the brightness on the screen till to the level when the blacklight becomes even and then I just reduce the brightness via nvidia panel to avoid eyes strain caused by the excessive brightness.
Probably you have already known that this model doesn't have PWM controller onboard. No PWM, no eyes strain, but we have got another side effects: just set the brightness to the minimum and look at you screen attentively, besides uneven backlight you can also notice some slightly yellish areas. Partly it is because of we have no PWN.
In comparison to my old glossy NEC 20WGX2 S-IPS 6GTG CCFL:
1)the new one is totally huge
2)twice less reflections on glossy surface - nice!
3)launch my favorite game Arma 2 and play for a while...rather feel disappointment from the response time.
5 years old monitor faster than new one. Now I know what the ghosting is :-( However the new panel definitely increases
the immersion effect of the game overall.
Total: It's definitely worth for its money but it has some minor flaws.

Good review. What seller did you buy from?

urliam why do you think 20WGX2 faster? May be not enough GPU - CPU power for the same FPS, resolution higher.
post #2908 of 11286
Man, games look amazing on my Catleap and GTX 580... Battlefield 3 runs great, Trine 2 looks stunning. Amalur is like a dream, Crysis Warhead etc etc but NO MATTER WHAT I do, the Diablo III beta runs like crap. It's not lag but it feels like everything is in slow motion. I tried all different vsync settings and nothing makes a difference. mad.gif

Does anyone know the length of the dual-link DVI cable? Is it at least 6' and of good quality?
