I found a catleap local for $280. At first I was just gonna buy new but after all the customs problems some have I'm thinking its worth it right? Guy claims new and good perfect condition. Anything I should check before taking it home? He said I can test it. If it has ag coating I'm probably still gonna look into it.

Any comments on this I would appriciate.

Another few questions to bother you gents with, if I may.

I'm sitting right now at an iMac (I'm unfamiliar with the exact model, however) that has a glass screen on it. I assume that this is similar to what 'tempered glass' on one of these things would be?

Also, and this is the part that I'm sorry to bother you guys with, is there anyway someone could either explain or show me the difference between AG screens and...non-glossy? Is that the other option? I'm a total moron in this aspect of monitor tech.

I would definitely go have a look at it.

You could get it cheaper, able to test/check it and see it running before money changes hands and no worries of DOA monitor or shipping problems.

 

It might be a 2B  smile.gif

 

What are you waiting on ?

 

 

From the OP

http://tft.vanity.dk/

 

Test it on your own monitor before you go to see the catleap, it explains what to look for on each test, then stick it on a USB drive and bring it with you.

 

On full white screen check for dead/stuck pixels, even brightness and clean whites ( yellow tints ).

Full black screen check for dead/stuck pixels and light bleed in darkened room.

He was at $300 and got him to $280 but he wouldn't go lower. Said he got two and only is selling both. I was nervous about warranty but figure once you have a good one that's the most important part rather than worry about it failing a few weeks from now I guess. Was gonna go new for warranty basically.

Just set up my SE Tempered Glass/Perfect Pixel Yamakasi, and wow....what a difference it is from a 1080p LED monitor! I thought things were crisp before, boy...was I mistaken!

Ran all the pixel tests and indeed, Perfect Pixel (no dark/bright pixels at all)

I ordered mine from Green-Sum and couldn't be happier, ordered last Thursday and it arrived today (I live near Chicago)

LOVE THIS THING! Now to see if I need to replace my two 560TI's down the road, anyone know a good resolution to game at if my cards can't handle it?

Well this blows... I was doing my homework and I heard something pop(electrical). This monitor worked good for 1 week and now it will not turn on. The led on the power brick is a steady green. Time to message to BCC and let's see how this goes.

If you're running two 560 Tis you should probably be able to run at native res 2560x1440. However you only have 1GB RAM I assume, so you probably should keep the AA down to a minimum (or off). I used to run a 570 1.25GB and had no issues at native res but AA would dramatically kill performance.

Yeah, I did some comparisons earlier. Don't worry about the color, I did not white balance the camera to the screen.

That's really unfortunate. Sorry to hear that
