I'd also like to know what's with the 2703. I read on Hardforum that it is an older model? wackosmiley.gif Differences to Q270, before I order...

Btw. 2703 appears to have much easier removable stand, if you wish to do it!

Somebody know OC PCB will be compatible with 2C and 2D revisions? Now I have choice to buy 2C or 2D revision and want replace PCB in the future.

That is the whole idea of making the OC PCB's ... to replace the PCB's in 2C and 2D monitors rolleyes.gifthumb.gif


* I posted that my monitor I got about 2 weeks ago had 5 dead pixels, turns out that it has NONE!
'note to self' .....wear ya glasses when checking .... was just dust LOL!
Needless to say I am very happy with my 2C Catleap ... it is pretty much perfect except for the crappy stand
that leans a bit. No backlight bleed at all. Super Fast deliver from green-sum (highly recommended)
Got it running at 66Hz with my GTX 580 3GB, can't wait for the OC PCB's though thumb.gif

I still have two questions open. If I order, I will order Pefect Pixel. That is 100% sure.

But:

What is the general opinion on tempered glass? People say dust inside - so is it possible to clean it? If it's just a little, don't think I will be bothered. Depending how visible it is. But how are the looks of the Catleap Tempered? I saw Shimian, but they don't offer Perfect Pixel, so, a no-go.
I would really like the glass in the front, but I do know all the advantages of not having it. Besides, it looks way more cooler.

Also, I got an interesting reply from one of the Ebay sellers:

Me:
I would like to order this screen.
Have a question about Perfect Pixel:
What does that really mean? Does the Perfect Pixel guarantees that all pixels on the screen are OK or what?
I am ready to pay more if this guarantees me no defects on the screen.
Thanks

Bigclothcraft:
Hello
Perfect pixel mean that all pixels on the screen are OK, in other words, there is no dead pixel in pannel.
Any Question are welcome.
Thanks

Now, for me, that has only one meaning. No defects. At all.

The green-sum didn't reply yet, they got the same question. BCC doesn't have a tempered version, but GS does. Oh decisions decisions...

Do you think it is possible to change the pcb to a working one? And where do i get one?

Hi,
How about soldering? You can try to modify your pcb if you are qualified enough.
Check these out:

This gets answered every couple of posts as with the pixel perfect questions. So here's a summary. Tempered glass is to protect the LCD screen surface. These are sold into gaming parlors in Korea so it is to protect them from potential customer abuse (e.g. coffee, scratches, etc). It does not serve any other purpose for a normal user, unless you have kids or an health obsession to point at stuff on the screen by touching it. wink.gif Reasons to buy / not to buy the glass are: 1) added layer in front of screen just reduces screen quality - questionable and depends on you 2) added cost - why buy it if you don't need it 3) people have reported that they have had dust behind the glass - fixable, but due to poor assembly process 4) Looks cool - your personal choice

Pixel perfect is a bit of a red herring and the about response shows that the sellers don't understand their own policies. These are A- panels. Meaning the have a specific dead pixel policy (it should be on each of the sellers ebay ads). Pixel perfect means that the monitors are checked against this policy (e.g. A- panel) then they are pixel perfect. From what I recall this means no bright pixel defects and no adjacent stuck pixel clusters. You get the idea, not so perfect as a normal person would expect, this also doesn't protect you against other defects like loose cables, defective LED unit, bad boards, etc. The important thing to understand is that the seller does not open and check the monitor against your standard, because he can't sell it for new if you don't want it after the check - not to mention the effort of doing this. This is a factory check and they check it against the A- spec (thus the longer delay, unless he already has pixel perfect units in stock). That's the bad news. The good news is that you do not notice non-bright pixel defects that much due to the pixel density/high resolution (pixels are very small and there are a lot of them). Results of non-pixel perfect monitors being "perfect" has been pretty good, see OP list of owners and those that have defects are ok, except for the exceptional few. So the bottom line is that pixel perfect is not a guarantee for a perfect screen, but cost a substantial amount of money, you can get one if it makes you feel better, but if your that cautious or this is that important for you get a US brand, otherwise roll the dice like everyone else here and the results might not be that bad (e.g. people who bought the pixel perfect monitor got dead pixels, not to mention dust in the tempered glass models or like me got a perfect monitor without the guarantee).

its just keeps getting better!. I noticed on 20/4/12 I had a windows update from Intel (display driver for Intel HD 3000)
Tried getting into the bios today and wahay! (even though I'm using an ATI 7970!!)- it works! smile.gif

I've added my details to the spreadsheet. very happy with this purchase.

If I'm experiencing screen tearing is it because of the monitor or the settings in-game?

Does anyone know where I can get a new PCB controller board ?
I got a catleap today but when I plugged in the power to the monitor, there was a puff of smoke and the monitor wouldn't turn on
Now I have a good ips panel but a burnt board
Not sure if I can return anything as I opened it to remove the stand.
