Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 395

post #3941 of 11286
For those that have the hum/buzz, it really is a simple fix. My 2B had a loud buzz, just popped the panel out and the PCB cover off. Applied a couple layers thick of double-stick tape on top of the two chokes labeled "220" and the monitor is silent now.

Having trouble finding the 120hz models for some reason, did someone say that they had 120hz listed (like a factory overclock)?

That's record breaking obnoxious. F 'em. Glad you didn't bend over, Scribby. I had a similar thing happen to me on another forum, I recognized something that no one had thought to use in a home storage context, and would be dirt cheap to source and people would gladly pay 5x the cost and still consider it a bargain. Put in a lot of work doing various testing, I post my results and it explodes as predicted.

Next thing you know the powers that be want in on the action. Offered me a "mod" position for my trouble, *LMAO*. So I just turned the information loose to everyone, solved that problem. Now its the most popular device in its class and pretty much defacto in every home storage build, and pricewise is selling for 5x the original cost thanks to ebay vultures and everyone else.

Anyway see you on the other site.

If you would have read the last page or two, I mentioned it many times .Google "Yamakasi Catleap Extreme 2B 120hz".

My Catleap just died after working for about a week. LED power indicator doesn't even turn on. Damn it. I contacted my seller (green-sum) about it, I'm awaiting a response. There's no way I can pay hundreds of dollars to ship it back to Korea, so I really hope he offers to pay for return shipping. If not, I'll have to open it up and try and fix it myself. I tested the output voltages of the power brick and they seem fine, so I'm quite sure it's the monitor. My luck really stinks... mad.gif

The ebay models have no manufacturer warranties. You have to purchase a Squaretrade warranty if you want go through ebay, otherwise there is the Microcenter Auria monitor with a 1 year warranty.

Some of the ebay ones have a 1 year warranty.

No, they come with a 1 year warranty regardless of buying squaretrade

Well, a lot in there I am not allowed to discuss here on OCN.  I will say your opinion on the PCB cost is WAY off.  This is not a simple $5-10 difference in cost.  These PCBs are a bit more complicated with a few chips that are very difficult to source at the moment.  Witech did not drop the ball in my opinion since there is, relatively speaking, a very small group of OC crazies on the planet who want the 120hz version.  On top of that, you can only reach 120hz with a single 670 or 680 card at the moment, which narrows this down a bit further (yes, I know up to 100hz is possible with many different cards, but 120hz is God's refresh rate right?)

 Finally on cost - I think you are a little nuts!  Remember, the cost for ALL these monitors regardless of where you buy them has EXPRESS SHIPPING INCLUDED.  And when I say express - it is friggin' express.  So you buy the most beautiful panel available in this size, order it from the other side of the world, and it arrives at your door in less than a week (people report getting them in THREE DAYS)?  And $460 is too expensive?  That's nuts.  tongue.gif

I think it's a 3-7$ difference. These chips in a board like this are $3-7, all other parts are nil. You are making it quite clear that you are making a ton on these boards - monitors. Considering it is 290-320 on ebay for these monitors, with very little difference (1-3 chips, maybe a voltage divider, 1-2 resistors), you should be far closer to 320 than you are to me. 460 seems very opportunistic. It is also fair to be asking for these for 400 (or a bit less) since 4k x 2k monitors will be here next year. OLED to boot (which is superior to IPS technology).

You really should be helping us with boards, not everyone can go out and spend 460 dollars on a monitor. Or two. It would really be great/helpful if you would help us source a good set of 2B boards, or help us get our hands on a set or two. They're really not that hard to source. It's just a board design. I've emailed WiTech and expect to hear from them soon. Will you help us please? There's no reason really not to.
