Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 414

post #4131 of 11286
I ordered three Catleaps from Greensum sunday night and received them today (Friday). So far all three monitors have checked out with at least no dead pixels. I haven't had too much time to individually test them because my 6970 only has a single dual dvi. On the monitor I'm using now, when viewing an all white screen the top of the screen is very clean white, while the bottom half is a dingy white with a yellow tint. It's noticeable on web-pages where it's mostly white, otherwise it doesn't bother me. Edit: after looking into it further it seems its mostly noticeable when the brightness is turned down. At full brightness its not nearly as bad. I haven't tried calibrating them yet. That may help as well. As long as I don't have any future problems with the monitors, I think I'll be very satisfied with them.

Hopefully it'll fade away. It did on all my monitors.

If you let is sit and  turned off for 30 minutes, will it work again for 5 minutes before it starts switching on and off again ?

yes. exactly. if it sits for 30 minutes or so... then it will work for about 5-10 minutes before it starts the on/off cycles... what could it be?? nothing is super hot to the touch..

thanks,

I hope it's better on your other monitors, or it fixes itself after calibration... because otherwise, a yellow tint on a IPS monitor defeats the purpose of having a IPS monitor imo. You get an IPS for accurate colors, otherwise TN is just as good stun.gif Try to contact him for an exchange.

Is there a specific model that I ned to buy if I want 2560x1440 @ 100Hz?

Also, which would be the best model for lowest input lag?The one with only the DVI-D input and nothing else?

I'm considering pulling the trigger on THIS one, but it needs to achieve 100Hz and lowest input lag possible.

The only catlep that can achieve 100+ Hz is the 2B model. All the ones on ebay are newer and will not overclock past 67Hz or so.

Yes the DVI-D only input is what your looking for.
post #4137 of 11286
Nothing...same monitor...same seller...same price

edit: The model of these ebay ones are probably 2D or 2E. The 2B were manufactured in February. Thus second month = letter B.
