Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 368

post #3671 of 11297
FINALLY placed my order for a 120hz model. It's been a long wait, and I ended up pay $120 more than I originally intended to spend for a Catleap... but I'm still excited nonetheless. Here's to hoping for 100hz + IPS by the end of the week thumb.gif

Heya fellas - still waiting on artisan approval and assuming that is NEVER going to happen since it has been over a week.  So I am giving up trying here on OCN.  NO PCB UPDATES OR INFO WILL BE POSTED HERE.  I think you all have the idea of how to find that information from the previous few posts.  Too bad, I used to really like this site!

Yup i noticed slight bleeding on the top right. Not enough to bother me, it's a small amount. Monitor still looks fantastic I love it. I went by what another member posted here that the seller would check bleeding too. I did not stress it. If you are worried I suggest you stress it. Pixels are good though.

I got the multi with speakers and that's the biggest disappointment for me. The speakers are weak. You are going to have to invest in a set of desktop speakers.

IMHO with 3.8million pixels, getting a monitor with 5 dead ones or whatnot isn't bad at all. In the days of 1280x1024 it was definitely a different story.
This monitor is really only for gaming (at which it is pretty damn awesome) and nothing else. Text is far too small on 27" for productive work and the glare from the glass gives off a ton of eyestrain. Then there is the left to right brightness problems which plague most of these and its kind of a disaster. However load up any game in a dark environment and this monitor puts eyefinity to shame. At least the 1080p portrait eyefinity I chucked in favor of this.

As others have states, just increase the Windows: Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display\Adjust Text Size

That works wonder and no matter how fine the DPI you can increase to make everything nice, large and readable.

thank you for checking! Could someone tell me which seller is willing to check backlight bleeding? I emailed green_sum, he/she said bleeding is normal so he/she won't check it.

Just received mine from Bigclothcraft.

I paid for the pixel perfect monitor and all seems good, just plugged it in and booted computer and all worked.

I told Bigclothcraft to mark it as refurbished gift  €70 and only had to pay €13.90 import duty (Germany) to the delivery driver  biggrin.gif

 

Edit: It is a D2, and just tried a quick look at BattleField 3, coming from a 120Hz monitor I see It will take a while to get used to 60Hz and I will be first in line for a 100Hz PCB if they become available.

That's really too bad. They publicly seemed to want to have you join, but now they seem like Washington DC had With their gun control laws

My question is that looking at most benchmarks a single 680 or 7970 can not push over 60/70 fps at this resolution for the newest games and the max setting. (Even lower on some) I understand that you can always turn down settings to get higher fps but then that completely counteracts the point of buying a beautiful IPS panel for details at high resolutions. So what is the benefit of overclocking the 2B model? Does it still help "fluidity" even though the cards cant reach "100FPS" in certain games?
I play all games from all genres so I understand in a game like WoW I can get the benefit of 1440P and "100hz" (over/under) but in a game like battlefield 3 will overclocking the monitor help even though the video card can only put out "50-65" FPS at max settings.

A higher refresh rate is always better, even when your framerate is lowish. It is more responsive and helps reduce tearing. If you do indeed get 50-65fps in BF3, then you should be able to play without v-sync and not notice any major tearing (while if you played on a 60hz monitor with that framerate, you certainly would notice tearing and you would need to use v-sync with all its trade-offs).

The difference between 100 and 120 wouldn't really be noticeable.

...maybe so, but if true (if it cannot reach 120Hz) then there is no reason for me to opt for one 690 considering that two 680s are cheaper where I live (and faster).
However if I can get 20Hz more with the 690, even though not noticable in most of the occations (albeit I can think of a couple of occasions where it *may* be noticeable), I'll definately buy the GTX 690...

From what I know, though, the 690 does not work exactly like two 680s sli'd, so there's still hope, right?
