The Shimian, Catleaps, PCBank, Potalion, Crossovers all use the same LG based S-IPS Display (except PCBank might have a slightly better one). The main difference is the design. I asked BCC a few days ago and the seller told me the Potalion is the same as the Shimian.

Every Korean monitor is the exact same panel. The contrast ratio, response time, and overclockability are the exact same. Old "2B" Catleaps could overclock to 120hz with the right hardware, but anything that isn't a 2B cannot. You can buy 2B Catleaps from other sources for considerably more.

Just curios where'd you hear that the PCBank has better contrast ratio/response time?

I got that from the first post here:

With the Catleap craze, the PCBANK 3VIEW PB2700 seems to have been overlooked.

It's response time measured in at 9.5ms avg vs 11.4ms on the Catleap. It's contrast ratio was measured at 1200:1 vs 1000:1

There is probably no difference at all. I didn't read the full thread though, so might be some old / outdated / outlawed news. thumb.gif

I'd be inclined to believe it's just a lucky panel. They're the same panels, and I don't think that a single sample is indicative of the entire batch. Also, I'd like to know what their margin of error is on their measuring equipment.

eBay is the only place I know of to buy regular catleaps.

I've been on the fence for a while, I have a couple concerns.

Is paying the ~$70 extra dollars for the perfect pixel ones worth it? Are they actually making sure there are no dead pixels, or just saying they are?
What's the difference between the ones with "tempered glass" versus the non tempered glass displays?

I was in the same boat, and decided against paying the money for the pixel perfect. I bought two of these so the difference would be much larger. Fortunately, I received my monitors without any defects regardless of purchasing the "basic" model of the monitors. Basically, the glass option is exactly that, you get glass as opposed to just the glossy film.

People tend to prefer non temper glass, Something to do with the reflect maybe.

My understanding from posts is that pixel perfect doesn't guarantee anything other then then you can ship it back at their cost if it has more then 5 dead pixels and get a replacement. People that don't order pixel perfect can also get a perfect monitor.

Whether it is worth 70$ dollars or not depends on how much dead pixels (typically unnoticeable) might bother you and whether you would want to be able to ship it back or not.

So the tempered glass is like what covers the iMac's display?

Is it the same between different sellers? Like BCC and green-sum?
Also I understand is return shipping can be monumental.
