I'm hoping theres a solution to this and its not just the slowness if S-IPS. Anyone?

Whats up SpacePope its Swolern from Slickdeals. Thats amazing to hear the colors on the Catleap look better that the Dell. Any luck with the blurry motion issue? I do remember a post a few weeks ago where the OP was having similar issues and was resolved with new cables. U could always buy some cables at Best Buy or Frys to test then return when your other cable comes in. My finger has been itching bad to pull the trigger on 3 of these bad boys. But a grand is a lot on an oversea bargain deal. Hope it works out for ya.

My 2D Catleap has begun to suffer from Image Retention. Hoping its just because I had it on too long...but I'm pretty sure that shouldn't be an issue. Do you think replacing the power block with a higher quality one and or getting a higher quality dvi cable can help fix the issue?

Anyone else get hit by this problem?

No, mine doesn't have speakers. Sorry but I hardly dare to take it to pieces just to look what colour my PCB is.
I think I have another PCB differing from yours because of the unevenness disappears on high level of brightness. But we are in the same boat redface.gif

Thanks...
It's exactly the same picture that I can see if I am using a grey background and the brightness is set to minimum.
Moreover later I had noticed that my screen has a significant yellowish tint and now it really pisses me off:

I envy you because mine is much worse than yours! :-)

....Thus far the biggest disappointment is the left to right brightness. Its pretty bad. I'll play with it later to see if I can somehow "fix" it. I am impressed so far. If I can fix the left to right brightness issue i'll be really stoked.

I think you both should read these posts (the whole story from the beginning):

Hey'all! Just got a catleap and it is apparently the 2c speaker model. I cant see any dead pixels though there is a problem with it that makes it pretty much unusable for me: The brightness of the color white is just too strong. It makes my eyes hurt and i cant use the monitor. Ive tried to use the d65 custom color profile but it didnt help much with the agressive brightness of white colors issue. I've also tried using the on board brightness buttons to tone it down but it makes the image dull overall at the point when i can see white as non agressive and eye piercing. Ive also tried to use Powerstrip but it gives a red screen with a Gtx 680 because of the raw drivers. I'm completley baffled by this point and out of ideas. sadsmiley.gif

Right finally can join the club. Picked up my Catleap last night. It was a pixel perfect tempered (Glossy bezel) screen model from Green_Sum and it's a 2C so it doesn't look like all (if any) of the pixel perfect models are 2B atleast from green sum, that's fine with me however as I have no intention of overclocking either way as I'm happy with 60hz. Actually that's a lie I'm extremely happy with the monitor, 1440p is a fantastic upgrade from 1080p and the colours are so much better and I haven't had time to use the colour optimisation tools off the first page (I did use windows colour correction tools too remove the red tint).

It has one black pixel right in the left hand corner which isn't classed as a defect but doesn't bother me in the slightest as it's soo far in the corner, no bleed, no noticeable shading issues accross the screen and I've tried all 30 brightness levels too check.


As for shipping too the UK, heres my experience:

It was posted on Thurs 12th, left korear on Fri 13th, arrived in the UK Sat 14th, where customs decided too hold it saying the invoice was missing, after multiple phone calls telling me the invoice was missing and I have too wait till they investigate it and will either have too pay charges of what they estimate the worth too be or I could send an invoice, I then phoned up parcelforce who will be delivering the goods and they told me that every package that comes through customs has this status message because customs are slow and it gives them a reason too hold your package while they catchup with their constant back log.

In the end it was released fine from customs on Wed 18th (with charges on the tracking status) it arrived at my local Parcelforce depot yesterday (19th) where I phoned up and was told I had fees of £37 too pay and I could either wait 3-5 days for a letter too arrive with instructions on how too pay (which meant I wouldn't expect delivery until late next week) or I could goto the local depot pay the fees and pick it up (which I did). When I got it the original invoice was there including the all the codes I asked the seller too put on the package too help me get through customs faster (which clearly had no affect) so customs basically held the package for no reason what so ever as far as I can tell.

I did ask Green Sum too just declare the item as its full £280 which I thought would clear customs with a £50 VAT charge, however he ignored this and declared it as a $30 gift which probably saved me some money in the long run but wasn't fooling anyone and might have had something too do with the customs delay, however it was cleared fine in the end and they hadn't opened the box too look. The charges were £24 for VAT (which means they estimated the package too be worth £120) and a £13 Parcelforce charge for them paying the original VAT charge at customs too get the package released.

Hopefully this will help others thinking of importing to the UK too know what too expect, however having this monitor setup in all its beautiful glory has totally made all the hassle and cost worth it.

Finally if the look of a monitor is important I highly recommend the tempered glass version as it's stunning.

Use the (shudder) nvidia control panel. Adjust the settings here, trial and error pretty much...

If you could get a calibrator that would be better, but nvidia cards have an issue with making the .ICC stick in games.Also gradient banding due to the LUT loader and nvidia stuff.

Ok just got my catleap D version. A few questions ...

- What have you guys done with calibration of the colors etc? ... the whites seem quite bright ... I notice the buttons near the power button (I assume thats the brightness modifiers) ... Have you guys done anything else with any profiles that you have liked; colors seem a bit muted or something also. Is there anyway to tell how bright it is by clicking the buttons? ...

- So seeing how I have a 2D model ... am I still able to OC this at all even by a little bit? ... I've watched hypermatrix's vid and will do that if I can OC. What about a pcb; did someone find a place where they can order one and do a switch (not sure if I want to venture into that or not thou).

- Have not seen any dead pixels and the blacklight seems alright(couldnt really tell thou); but totally not used to a IPS glossy screen; have used matte LCD for soooo long. Its like the monitor has glass in front of it but it doesnt; I love the pixel pitch thou; seems like more intense and clear.

any other suggestions for my purchase

Anyone been able to get Diablo III beta running smooth at 2560x1440? I tried everything with drivers and overclocking my GTX 580 Lightning but it just doesn't go over 30-40 FPS during gameplay -- ARGH!!! mad.gif
