Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 492

post #4911 of 11286
Seems like the early models with the LG boards as well as the display were great, not so hot now judging by all the problems. Hopefully this is just a bad batch to be worked through!

But I wanted to know what the community thought about the longevity of the product. From people who have it, does it seem like a product that would last a while like a regular monitor purchased in a store or seems to have a shorter life expectancy? I understand the risk involved into getting this kind of monitor and I am not trying to be negative about the product or the situation but I would appreciate to hear what people think about that.
I know some people have had the chance to experience with them for a while and even some with multiple units and I would appreciate the feedback.
Thank you!

With my experience on my monitors, if you want to use these monitors for a long time, you're going to first get better stands (or at least take really good care of the ones included), and keep them clean/dust free.Compared to a monitor "purchased in a store" the cheapness falls in the housing of the panels. At least with my monitors, the bezel is warped in a few areas, but the panel itself flawless.

So, the way I see it, you will get as much time out of these monitors are you are willing to put in... sort of... you get my point smile.gif.

I ordered mine from BCC just recently and I received two perfect monitors.

Anyone else had to pay return from UK on ebay? The postage is £100+! ridiculous.

If I get Yamakasi Catleap, I suppose I'm going to have to use it at 2560x1440. That's not a problem for desktop and all, but what if my GPU is not strong enough to push games at that resolution?

How do games look set to 1920x1080 on that monitor? Does it affect input lag?

Do you even need anti-aliasing when using 2560x1440?

I have HD 7850 overclocked at 1050 MHz, will that suffice for 2560x1440 without AA?

Also, can someone explain what does "SE" stand for?

SE stands for without speakers.

The 7850 will be fine.

Good to hear. I'm looking to get one without speakers, without AG coating and without tempered glass. Still trying to decide between Catleap and Shimian.

Make sure you PM the seller and ask them to check it, to make sure it is not AG.

I put about $300 in, yet to get anything out!
