Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 6

post #51 of 10592
I've ordered a plain Catleap from green-sum. I'm in the UK so I'll have to see how it goes. Will probably have to pay ~25% extra on duties but still a lot cheaper than anything else available, including the Hazro monitors with the same panel sold here in the UK.

The vesa mounting holes on the back, (once you remove the silver plastic) what spacing are these? 75 or 100mm?

Cheers

Edit: I see from the handy FAQ here that it say 3" so 75mm thumb.gif

This is crazy. I've been looking for a budget 27" monitor this week and was going to finally pull the trigger on an Asus VE278Q (the one with pervasive flicker issues and costs ~$280) but then the main Shimian/Yamakasi thread showed up. Couldn't have been better timing since I wasn't all that excited about the Asus to begin with. At first I thought at $400+ it was too risky, but I'm now considering it, specifically the Yamakasi Catleap with the multiple inputs (I just need it to have HDMI). I'm primarily going to use it for development and some multimedia (minus the gaming), so I'm not overly concerned about the input lag / response times, although picture quality is very important and you can't get any better than an IPS. Having said that, I have a couple of questions:

1. My main rig finally gave up (whole another story), and because of budget constraints it'll be a while before I get to upgrading it. So I'm currently on my laptop with the default/built-in Intel HD Graphics 3000* (no discrete graphics card) with one HDMI and one VGA port. This is what I'm planning on hooking up the Catleap to. Would this even work if I plug it into the HDMI port? (The Intel graphics driver has a built in scaler, although I'm assuming the multi-input monitor probably comes with it)

2. I also wanted to confirm if the multi-input Catleap (i.e. w/HDMI, DVI-D, VGA, etc) comes with an OSD?

Question concerning pushing monitor to 100hz, I notice manual timing, a decrease of vertical pixel from 1508 to 1478 to achieve 100hz. Is the lose of 30 vertical pixel noticeable? Is it worthwhile to lose 30 pixel vertical for 3hz difference?

Any comment appericated. Thanks smile.gif

Another question.. can we get posting of color adjustment for Catleap. I remember Toasty posted something about his color adjustment and software he use to make Catleap look better.

Awww man... Such a nice monitor. Only reason I don't buy is:

1. gotta spend that money on Ivy and a new DAC
2. No stand adjustments to speak of (like the professional series of dell, ie Vertical rotate)
3. No warranty

But such a sick monitor

Between the refurb fw900s and this, its a tough decision on what one can get for a monitor.

As far as I know, it does come with a functioning OSD. However, I don't think anyone has bought the multiple input Catleap yet to confirm.

I do not believe that HDMI will support 2560x1440. Please someone correct me if I am wrong.

I ordered my monitor on Saturday 3/4 from Green-Sum and still do not have a tracking number nor is it showing shipped. I am hoping it shows up by mid next week but if it really has not shipped that probably will not happen.

Well, I think i made a mistake ordering without tempered. I like the capleap but love the tempered look and they didn't have any at that time. I think ii'll order a second capleap with tempered but then i have to deal with selling the first one which still has not arrive.

From the other thread.

I mean think about it, you're basically putting something between yourself and the display. That's a crime. Sometimes you end up with reflections appearing on both the glass and the panel and it's infuriating.
Had this problem on my DELL Studio XPS 16. Drove me batty. Though I'll admit, it may be possible to keep it under control on a monitor, with which you can guarantee a glare free environment.


Never personally had a tempered glass monitor so I dont know how true the above statement is.
