A little review after 24 hours now with my catleap 2D and here are my conclusions compared to my dell u2711 and u2412:

The catleap is a really really great value monitor. Mine has one dead GREEN pixel which is quite annoying on black backgrounds but otherwise not noticeable. Backlight bleed is not bad and response times in games are really good. My monitor has slight yellowing on the right side compared to the left which looks really almost perfect. In games this is not noticeable but if you're viewing an all white webpage your'e going to notice it.

Compared to my u2711 which I got for $780 on a "slickdeal" (which I use at work) this monitor would get a B+ if the dell got an A+. The dell has no yellowing, no dead pixels and of course a warranty/service/techsupport, etc. In games they are pretty much identical, the only advantage is the dell doesn't have a glossy screen and the dell you can use whatever input you want.

For half price this monitor is a steal. The lack of warranty is pretty scary but since square trade only wants $50 for one it makes this monitor almost exactly half price with almost all the benefits. In addition the potential to overclock the yamakasi is a plus I have yet to explore, even if my 2D supposedly only goes to 67hz in the best case senario.. So long as the panel lasts for years and doesn't break or is much of a hassle its a really great deal IMHO. Really a TU to Scribby and others who took the plunge and turned the community on to these. So far so good!

Yeah, that is the thing, 8 gig of RAM, i5-2500k @ 4.2 ghz and a GTX 580 Lightning that I can get to 940 core and 4600 on MEM... it still is only around 40 FPS.

I know the beta patches have killed some performance for a lot of NVIDIA users but this is insane.

PS -- It's a Diablo III beta OPEN weekend!

Besides some blacklight bleed around the edges, my Catleap 2C is fantastic!

One problem I have is my 27" HP even though a TN panel, was glossy and had ZERO bleed so I got spoiled. Also, I got a new Panasonic 60" Plasma TV and that is the finest display I have seen in years. I wish I could hook my PC to that for gaming wink.gif
