How was the communication? How would you rate it?
Who are you going to go for now, since you didn't ask for a replacement?

They were nice. It took about a business day to hear from them every time I emailed them.
I was offered some options on sending it back to them.

Possibly from AW again because of their customer service.

Hi all. Just joined since I ordered a Yamakasi Cat Leap 2300 perfect pixel yesterday off a daily deal from green sum. I've done enough research to know that $189 for this 23 incher got my 13 year old a pretty great monitor. I'm still a bit of a nube on some of this stuff though.

Two questions for you pros:
1) Scribby, forgive my ignorance but I read your original post and I'm still not clear what, if any extra cables I should have on hand for it's arrival.

2). For those of you that purchased from green sum, he says he is giving 2 to 5 day shipping but my estimate is for July 28 to august 5th. His reviews all praise him for fast shipping. Tracking number doesn't work yet. Should I expect it sooner?

Okay, said two questions, but here goes a third:

My son's first experience with this will be with SWTOR. Considering that he will eventually move beyond that game (and a mouse and keyboard made just for SWTOR might or might not be the best choice), any recommendations on good keyboards and a mouse for this setup? For those interested, the rest of the system is:

Microtel Computer AMTI9041 gaming computer with 3.4GHz AMD Phenom processor, 12 GB DDR3 1333mhz, 1TB hard drive 7200rpm, 24x DVD-RW, Nvidia GTX-T1. 1 GB video card, Microsoft windows 7 home premium home version, 64 bit +WiFi

Thanks for your help for this nube mom of three boys!

I'm really liking my Catleap so far but have two things that I'm wondering if are fixable.

1) Recently whenever I push the button to turn on the monitor on the monitor will make a tapping sound. If I don't push the button a certain way, the tapping sound will continue but will alternative between a single tap and two taps -- like it's sending me a message in Morse code or something. Sometimes when it's doing this the screen will turn off between the time it goes from BIOS to the desktop, after which the tapping will stop and the screen remains on. The LED remains solid green this whole time it's doing this.

Other times the only way I can make it stop tapping is to hold the monitor's power button down for a few seconds, wait for it to make a long farting sound, and then turn it on again.

Is this something I should be worried about? Is it easily fixable? I've already had to open it up to connect a cable to get it to work and I'd prefer never to have do it again. smile.gif


2) So the picture is gorgeous, but I have a bright green that's stuck almost dead center in the screen. Most of the time it's not an issue but when watching movies or playing games my eyes always go right toward it. Is this fixable? I've found methods and programs claiming to fix it but haven't had any luck so far. I tried the damp cloth pen method and ran JScreenFix for a few hours. Since it's an IPS screen I've read that these methods won't work.

Thanks in advance!

When I ordered from green sum a few weeks ago I received my monitor in 5 business days. The tracking number showed up once the monitor was in the States, which then took 3 days to get here (I live in the Midwest). You'll first probably receive a PDF of the English manual from green sum before you get a tracking number.

No, I took a gamble. I read several comments from people who bought pixel perfect and had issues and from ones who didn't and had perfect monitors.
