They look amazing on paper, and reviews are good too. So im really into getting one of those. But before i commit to buy it, i wanted to ask you couple of questions (I was thinking of getting CATLEAP Q270 MULTI, if HDMI is needed)
a) I have Asus G73 laptop (ATI Mobility 5870), and only HDMI. Would I be able to:
i) Get cheapest version of q270 and use Dual Dvi converter to HDMI?
or
ii) Do i need to get multi input version and use HDMI directly? Would I get full 1440p using HDMI?
b) Outscalling:
i) Would it upscale every movie to 1440p (full screen, not windowed), and would it upscale gaming in less than 1440p to full screen aswell?
ii) if i ever decide to connect anything else than a computer to this monitor, would it upscale it to 1440p or show it in windowed mode? (like console, camera, tv box if possible?)
c) Someone mentioned, that input lag is noticable when upscalling, is it true?
d) Would i be able to overclock (get a bit better refresh rate) on this monitor with my Mobility 5870?
So overall, I would like to know if i would always get 1440p with my mobility 5870 using HDMI, and if there would be any problems at all.
Thank you for all the answers!

So guys, would I be able to get full 1440p via HDMI from my Mobility 5870?...
Thanks!

According to ATI's website, it says that the max output of the 5870 is 2560 x 1600, so yes, within the range of these monitors.

EDIT: ROFL. Forgot the mobility part.

Unlikely. Although HDMI may be able to drive 2560x1440, a HDMI single link 1440p signal is not the same as a DL-DVI 1440p signal. Adapters may not do the conversion properly. You need an adapter that is specifically rated at 2560x1600.

I am thinking about doing a PLP setup with my Catleap. Does anyone have any recommendations for the best monitor to use? It would be ideal if the dimensions can also match up with the Catleap. They would function only for multitasking; I wouldn't game on them.

However, if the difference in image quality would be drastically different from the Catleap, to a point that it's obvious that I'm using two different monitors, then I'll probably just stick to a single Catleap, or get two (using the second one for extra "real estate").

I'm currently looking at these two options:

1) Dell UltraSharp 1703FP
2) Dell Ultrasharp 2001FP

Wait are you saying that HDMI can't push 1440p?

I have to use DVI?!

What!

HDMI 1.3 and 1.4 can both push 1440p but you need to make sure the adapter is 1.3 or 1.4 compliant and the electronics inside can handle the res.

How are the other green sum returns going? Mine has been stuck in "clearance delay" with DHL since Friday though green sum insists he's sent them all the paperwork for which they asked.

No, I am not saying that.

A 1440p single link HDMI signal is not a 1440p DL-DVI signal. That is what I am saying. Catleaps are so cheap that I don't believe that their electronics can handle a single-link DVI signal running at >165mhz pixel clock, which is what you would get with your "standard" HDMI -> DL-DVI passive adapter.
