I wasn't sure of the quality of the supplied power brick with my Catleap as it use create a lud hum through my speakers and get pretty hot. Do for safety reasons and peace of mind I bought this.390

I got mine last night and notice the power bricks label 190V - 240V with a sticker saying "110V OK".
So I power up my monitor with it and in about an hour the dislay suddenly went black. I can't get it to display since than. Sometime I manage to get it to display for couple of seconds and it went black again.
I going to do more troubleshooting tonight (i.e try different DVI-D cable, videocard and computer).
Right now I think my monitor is dead. I wonder if the power brick got something to do with it.

Need some solid and accurate advise for the Yamakasi Catleap Multi.

I'm in the process of purchasing the Macbook Pro Retina and it has HDMI 1.4. According to the HDMI versioned Catleaps, it has version 1.3 (as the picture depicts that)? However, in another part of the description, it states HDMI version up to only 1920x1080p. I've already contacted seller for clarification.

I could simply go w/ the DL-DVI versions, but I'll need to find the right hardware for my laptop (which I might just do to save a little bit of $).

Does anyone have the HDMI version of the Catleaps and running 2560x1440 via their HDMI?

Ordered the Catleap on Saturday from green-sum while it was on sale for $290, and I received it today (missed the delivery yesterday). I'm using it with a dual boot hackintosh, and I can spot no flaws with the monitor at all. Zero dead pixels and no noticeable backlight bleed. I'm using it with an Asus CuCore 5770, and I know that there are some people still worried that it won't work with the 5770 (sellers have that chart that say it won't, after all). I think 2 people reported it working so far in this huge thread, and I should be the 3rd. I can see the BIOS screen and everything. I sold my iMac after deciding to use my hackintosh as a main, and I've missed that S-IPS panel since then. That was until today.

I have to laugh a little - you traded a Korean-made brick for a Chinese-made brick and you did it for peace of mind?  lachen.gif I understand your points so don't take this the wrong way - I just found it a little funny.

 

EDIT:  I have 6 Cats now - 5 OC and 1 non-OC and have never had an issue with the bricks.  I understand this is a SMALL sample size (doesn't even register as a sample size actually), but I torture these almost daily and they seem to hold up fine.

I somehow missed the little sticker on the brick that says "110v acceptable". I've got it hooked up and all is well. No dead pixels, no humming, everything great smile.gif

Pretty pleased with this purchase.
post #5320 of 11285
Ordered Saturday night and they got here Thursday from Green-sum. Panels in good shape, no pixel issues or anything. One of the monitor stands is a little higher than the other so I'm perplexed. Thought maybe it didn't screw in flush which explains the near 1/4" hight over the other monitor. They don't appear to go up and down so I might just need to find something to put under the other one.

Power supplies get toasty after 10 minutes much like others stated. Stands are wobbly also as stated previously. OS X booted right up right at 2560x1440. No display issues on a BFG 9800 GTX OC.

450

I actually own 2 27" Apple Cinema Displays and the panel looks pretty good but the viewing angles are not as good. Obviously the stand doesn't even come close. But for what you save ... I'll take it.
