Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 551

post #5501 of 11297
Bought two of the Catleap Q270 Monitors from Green-sum for $615 (included upgraded shipping via DHL) I emailed him before purchase and asked about double boxing or bubble wrapping the monitors. He stated to purchase and then send an email requesting extra packaging. Ordered Sunday evening and monitors arrived Friday morning (DHL received on Wednesday); so three days in transit total! Monitors arrived in extra layer of bubble wrap and a slight crushed spot on one corner.

Once out of the packing, both monitors have ZERO dead pixels, Also I cannot find any "dust" or smudges on the screens. One monitor does have the 220 Choke hiss sound quite bad. I will open it up this weekend and put some RTV on the chokes and see if it quiets down. If not I can do SMT soldering and may just replace the choke altogether if I can find a part number for them. Altogether a perfect set of monitors; minus the somewhat flimsy stands.

I am sitting these new monitors next to two Hanns-G 28" LCD TN panels running at 1920 x 1200 and the quality and resolution is night and day! If you are unsure about getting these monitors trust me you will not be disappointed!

Hey guys, thanks for the info on the compatibility of this lcd with my gpu!

Next thing I'd like to ask about is the "on screen display" menu on this monitor. Does it have one? Do all of them have one? I've read mixed opinions on this. Some say these monitors come in "lite" versions where there is no OSD.

I'm a photographer and considering this display for work, having an OSD to calibrate the monitor through hardware may be essential to getting the most accurate color.

Also, if any of you have a spyder4 colorimeter, could you please run it on this LCD and let me know the % of RGB gammut it's capable of displaying?

Thank you for your help in advance!

thank you Wiz33 & eternal7trance, for your feedback,

just to be safe I will get another GPU & cable for testing (after that the only thing left is that I got a DOA )

can you recommend a GPU & cable (the GPU need to work with my 300 w power supply )

thank again ...

Following up on my search for a GPU .. Do you think this one will work

XFX HD-657X-ZHF2 Radeon HD 6570 1GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150543

my local bestbuy has it in stock so will be easy for me to pick it up ...

base on the spec look ok (also reading the feedback on it, it works on low power supply , I have 300 W)

and for the cable I found this one on my local officedepot

Ativa DVI Gold Dual-Link Monitor Cable, 10'
http://www.officedepot.com/a/products/828510/Ativa-DVI-Gold-Dual-Link-Monitor/

this will be just for testing the DVI Cable as the price is a bit to much .... smile.gif

TIA

No, you need to calibrate on your GPU settings. Same thing like my Apple Cinema, no OSD.

honestly I wouldn't waste the money, BCC checks the monitors before sending so he makes sure there isn't any serious defects in it, and on top of that I ordered a regular non perfect pixel and I have not one dead or stuck pixel anywhere that I have noticed yet. My suggestion is make him an offer on ebay and see how low you can go if you really want him to check for a perfect pixel.

I believe the Multi version of this monitor has an OSD.

 

Maybe somebody with a Multi version can confirm and how much control you get with the OSD ?
