OHHHHHHHHH SHIIIIIIII-

Something's about to go down @ AMD (support)...

If only there were still some active Driver modders (like NGOHQ) that could come and help us out... 100% sure they could fix this.

HI guys, posting just want to share my overclocked Catleap with gtx 670. It was easy to push catleap to 120hz with gtx 670. Did not follow HyperX Guide, all I did was manual do the timing. No need to install monitor driver or all those other stuff.

IT seem to be running fine on 120hz. ON Diablo 3 I'm getting 60ish-70ish FPS everything max, so can't really tell you how it is in 120hz smile.gif

Lame, ordered on Sunday and still not here. Hopefully it'll be here by the weekend. Need it for a nice D3 weekend thumb.gif

Monoprice shipment came in today. Me and a couple buddies grouped up and bought a bunch of stuff. I got a stand and a DVI cable. I highly recommend that stand to anyone. Don't have the monitor of course to test it out, but it's built like a rock and is very adjustable. I put a LOT of weight on it with my hands and almost no bending. Great for the price, but if you're outside of USA shipping will kill when only buying a few items. Cable seems to be nice and thick too. Now if I only had my monitor frown.gif

Search on Google "120 Hz catleap". There are no sellers who go through ebay, if that's where you've been seaching.

There is a lot of talk around the net of this monitor and how well it performs - but none show actual input lag test results/screenshots.

I found several posts stating the input lag averaged 12ms, and a couple that said they had not tested it, but since other IPS using the same LG panel were around 10ms-15ms that it would be no better.

For those that own this monitor - the Catleap Q270 - and also own an old CRT and a splitter cable, can you run an input lag test and take a handfull of photos showing the difference between the CRT and the Q270 at the highest refresh rate you can achieve and post them for potential owners smile.gif

It would be great if you did the test using SMTT tool and using a splitter cable for the most accurate results. But if you do not have SMTT tool, using the downloadable version of the input lag stopwatch and a splitter cable would also be worthwhile.

Please, no "clone" mode input lag tests wink.gif


Cheers in advance to whoever takes the time to provide decent input lag results.

Got my Catleap today biggrin.gif Somehow managed to control myself and remove the rear arch and stand before trying it out. Got it mounted on the mono-price mount and it's not bad. The only weak link in the stand is the mechanism that controls the up and down tilt of the monitor. Sometimes it'll tilt down on you and it's hard to get it to sit right. Nonetheless still worth the money. Was too lazy to do cable management today, so I'll do it tomorrow and post pics. Used a simple dead pixel checker that displays full screens of colours, and there's absolutely none that I can see. The only issue is on an all black screen the backlight is somewhat uneven along the top edge of the screen. Not the fading issue, just a type of bleed. Not noticeable for normal use or gaming so I don't really care. 100% satisfied with my Catleap so far thumb.gif Just needs some calibration... This is a perfect pixel from green-sum for anyone wondering.

Well crap. I just got my monitor an hour ago. Plugged it in and smoke came out the back. I quickly unplugged it and tried again, but now looks like its completely dead. I live in the US, so the voltage here is only 110V. Only thing I can think of is that the power brick is broken and fails to convert to 24V, ending up frying the monitor.
Sent an email to the seller to see what possible solutions we can explore.
Looks like latenssi also had this problem, and return shipping for him seems to cost upwards of $700, so this doesn't look good frown.gif
Makes me regret ever considering a korean knockoff...

shouldn't cost 700$ to ship it back.. highest i've seen is 270$. I wouldn't call these knock offs as they really really aren't they are just a brand using the same panel that apple and a few other companies use.

I'm glad most people like theirs and haven't had any problems, but the build quality is pretty terrible, but I guess you cant beat it for the price. If I can get a replacement without having to send it back I'd still do it...
