Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 304

post #3031 of 11286
About: Yamakasi Catleap Q270 (100hz guaranteed)

Before I started this monitor adventure, I knew that I would fade from here when it was done. This was kind of my mission here. Normally i don't paticipate in forums, but eagerly googling "2560x1440 100hz" brought me here, and things just started rolling!

I have handed over "my contacts" information to Chipp. And from all my heart, I hope for you all, that they manage to cut some kind of deal.

I wish you the best of luck ScribbyDaGreat, with the PCBs hopefully this will be allowed to succeed.

Now i will enjoy my "soon to become 2B" catleaps, and forget all about who can pee the longest! I will follow for sure, but its up to Chipp and OCN if this deal is ever going to happend!

Pease!

I've actually read most of the OP and had a look on google and I can now see what is so special about these monitors, and at $350USD it's amazing value for money. I might buy one (or maybe more if I get a better GPU) Q270 SE once I have the money. I think the only problems I will have would be to find on from a reputable seller.

EDIT: Never mind found one on eBay.

From my understanding, if you have a gtx 460 and can achieve 120hz at 1920x1080 - you CAN try the unofficial driver.

Of course they will lose some activity for locking that topic but I suppose the OCN chief has taken that in consideration when making his decision.

Edit: bQvle cleared up my concerns.

At 1920x1080 you wouldn't need to go over the 400mhz pixel clock. That is true. From my general experience though...the 3d just isn't going to happen. I'm pretty sure for 3d to work properly, you need it to be running at its native resolution as well. But if you wanna give it a try, by all means. tongue.gif

Although then you are restricted in how you sit (to get the best effect, plus 27" isn't an ideal size for the technique, although doable)
Parallax 3D is not acceptable due to the halved horizontal resolution IMO; unless you've got a display intended for it (and it has increased horizontal resolution to compensate) then you're missing all the benefits of the 2560x1440 panel in the first place (and might as well just buy a 120Hz 1080p panel).

I have applied that russian mod to stryker's 2B board that I fixed the backlighting on; it seemed to help a bit, but it wasn't an instantaneous and perfect fix (he still has a tiny bit of unevenness). I will be doing some experimentation on my own looking into a possible alternative (a potentiometer on the board to manually adjust the brightness balance) but that russian mod, while useful, is not the ultimate fix to unevenness issues with these monitors. I'll also be posting pictures of how I did the mod against his 2B board (which has a different layout than the 2C referred to in the original pictures).

bQvle - thanks so much for all your hard work!  I hope OCN doesn't screw this up in the end (not anticipating they will, but who knows.)  I am not sure why they feel the need to take over since it appeared this was simply going to be another monitor up for sale on eBay from Korea - we just happened to ask for particular guts.  From what I read in the TOS posting about a monitor that may be for sale on another site, whether Amazon, Best Buy, etc. - yes even eBay without links, is not against the TOS.  I see links to items for sale on this forum every day.  

 

The Catleaps will not be branded anything other than that - Yamakasi - the Witech model designation for the Catleap - not OCN.  Just because we have asked for them and talked extensively about them being made available doesn't mean OCN needs to take them over.

 

Again, this is my opinion based on talking with bQvle's contact (also mine for my extra PCBs), these are a special run monitor being sold on a separate website, eBay, by third party resellers.  Why is OCN involved here?  The explanation on the thread makes no sense when one understands what is really going on behind the scenes.

 

Is it a money grab, potentially, by OCN?  Maybe.  I know there are ZERO legal ramifications from informing the OCN community that these monitors are for sale on a particular site - and in the case of eBay not providing a direct link.

 

Having read and re-read the explanation it makes me real nervous about pursuing the PCBs and at the last minute OCN saying - "Nope, we are taking it from here thank you very much."

And that's what happens when you switch to Huddler, folks! Commercialization of your userbase. Very same attitude on Head-Fi.

Head-fi is a lot more extreme.

They'll ban you if you post objective results of DIY or other amps against one of their sponsors.

Scribb - agreed. I'm not particularly happy with how this has been handled...and while I understand it's "our board, our rules", it just came out of left field. 725 votes (4 weeks), and only now that it is so close to coming to fruition, there is suddenly intervention?
