Not being rude i just never really thought of the monitor much. I just see one that looks good and but it if its good priced?
I know we all have our obsessions though so nothing against it at all. It was cool enough to get me reading and watching videos on it.
But can someone explain it to me a little ? What the real life difference is?
Does it look better? or whats the the great part? I think overclocking anything is awesome that's what got me interested in the post to begin with smile.gif but why a monitor i don't know.
Thanks guys

A lot of the information your looking for is in the original post (see page 1). These types of monitors 2560x1440 @ 27" are upwards of $700 in retail. You get it in less than a week from Korea for half price. Also note that this is an IPS LED panel so nice and thin as well as great colors. Input lag is another benefit for ones with the single DVI-D dual link connector and no OSD. It is very low due to the lack of scaler and great for an gaming LCD monitor (one of the reasons I bought this). Haven't checked the pricing of 3 acer lcds (what size, resolution, ips, etc) maybe more like 2 vs 3, since these are going for less than $350 shipped now. The key for me is the resolution again (think retina display vs normal tablets), ips (if your into photos) and no bezels (compared to the 3x lcd set-up). OC'ing this is the icing on the cake, but also see the input lag section on the OP about the impact to video. One thing to be aware of is the impact of the higher resolution on your frame rates. I thought buying a 470gtx two years ago would last me a while since it easily maxed out my 1080p monitor and since that was my native resolution there was no need to go higher till I bought a new monitor. Might end up going with 2 of the 100Hz ones if/when they come out. I just love the extra realestate on the 2560x1440 (pictures, webpages, coding, etc). As for games a nice trade off is to turn off AA to get more HP, since the higher resolution and tighter pixels makes up to avoid jaggies.

I am on some cheap Hannspree 23" i picked up on sale for $129. and have been very happy with it. Then i have my PC also hooked to my 55" Toshiba
Maby i am just going blind in my old age because they all look somewhat the same to me nowadays smile.gif

I know what you mean. Did the same for flat diamond-tron 20" when it first came out then prices dropped like crazy. I agree with you that panel prices do drop quickly, but the market in Korea and WW for LCD is depressed already. I think prices on these types of displays will get cheaper, but more like from the $700 to $400 as you would be buying now. These types of displays are in less demand since the sweet spot is 1080p due to video. I know Intel is pushing for higher resolution displays, but that will take a year or two and I think they won't go mainstream till something like the follow on standard for HD video comes. I also picked up a cheap Auria 26" which I bought for $200 on sale two years back. I got it for the 1920x1200 resolution. It had a couple of dead pixel and the a strong blue tint. It is also not an IPS panel. So if I get the 2x 100Hz Catleaps, I'll move the 2C (65Hz max) to my wife's room to replace the Auria and move the Auria to my living room for the kids. Then I can throw out the junky 32" 720p Oliviea I got for $300. Sigh... Yes, the darn upgrade bug has got me again.

Since I'm typing this on my dual display set-up (40" Samsung HDTV TN 1920x1080 and Catleap 27" IPS 2560x1440) and had a nice native 2560x1440 wallpaper in the background that really showed the difference between the two displays. I attached picture does not do the actual colors justice (deeper, richer - tough lighting with bright sunlight outside and forgive my mess). It does serve a good comparison between the displays in regards to resolution (see how much more you see of the wallpaper on the right) and the difference in sharpness and color. Good luck with your decision.

I'd guess 70+ to ship it by air. Surface might be a bit cheaper, but could take a month. Not really worth it unless you got a DOA. I luckily got a perfect screen, but my plan was to sell it on Craigslist if I didn't like it. Might be cheaper than the hassle and cost to return it.

I am about to buy such one but i am still not knowing witch manufactor. Yamakai or Achiva or Crossover. The Crossover seems to have the best stand, but there will be no PCB upgrade, like it could come for Yamakasi. frown.gif

Which one would u buy and from which seller?

Your on the Catleap club so the answer is pretty obvious. If your worried about the stand then there a lot of alternatives. I'm using the monoprice one for $20. Catleap was cheaper than Crossover when I bought it, so even with the stand I think there about a wash. You then get a better stand.

Here is the info on the stands that I compiled: http://www.overclock.net/t/1225919/yamakasi-catleap-monitor-club/2010#post_16862111

Having problems with the invalid character error, with the original stand post. I think this the post is too big and is really hitting a character size limit that is being incorrectly reported back as an invalid character error, so to test this I will be splitting the thread up into two.

Catleap Stand Information - Part 2 of 2 (click here for Part 1)

Part 1:
- Stand quality & videos
- Stand Tilting
- VESA shorting
- Plywood mod
- Portrait mounting issues


Alternate Stands

Single

Dual

Triple

Its the Yamakasi catLeap Club so people here will tell you to get the CatLeap.

I tell you, Get the Crossover. I bought 3 and the 3 are astonishing. No dead pixel, and the stand is not sagging like the catleap. I can choose the height I want and ITS SOLID.

I bought from Red-cap for around 395$ (Best offer) and I was very happy with that seller and the comminication.

I wanted the catleap at first because it was cheaper, but after I read the Stands were garbage. I decided to go with the crossover. I see less people getting bad pixel than Catleap owners.

AMEN! wink.gif The larger user base means more support and sharing in the community, see PCB upgrade OC'ing tips, OP, etc.

If your desk supports it, I would get this:

Crossover = 3x $395 = $1185
Catleap = 3x $330-340 (best offer for 3) + 3x Monoprice stand $25 (incl ship + tax) = $1095

This assumes your ok with removing the Catleap stand and your desk supports a clamp mount. More flexible, solid stand and $90 cheaper. Getting deadpixels is pretty much a crap shoot, so one brand is pretty much the same as the next. I'm guessing there are more people buying Catleaps, so you see more people having trouble. As always it is up to you and your personal choice. I just love the set-up below and given my limited options to add a second monitor the monoprice stand really delivered.

Has anyone that has a 120 Hz monitor notice any difference between say 100 Hz?

Thinking about getting one of these B models just to play around with.
