Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 7

post #61 of 10288
I just ordered the YAMAKASI CATLEAP - NO speakers YES tempered glass.
I have an Asus VE278Q and will try to do comparison shots when the catleap gets here.

After looking at my Asus for a few months I am getting tired of the limited brightness and even with everything turned up, the image just looks blown up and dull to me. The reasons I'm making the convert is because of the extra brightness, resolution, and colors AND response time.

The response time is about the same with both monitors but with the VE278Q (supposed to be 2ms? yeah right...) I can definitely tell there's a noticeable mouse lag that surfaced when I upgraded from my old HP w2408h (24'' with 5ms)

Do monitor manufacturers lie about response time? I'm almost certain that my Asus 27'' sucked more than my HP 24''...

I was this close (maybe a few second) before clicking "buy it now" until i read your post and actually make since what i just read from you.

Any comment appericated. Thanks smile.gif

AFAIK, you don't lose anything, that's just the timings, not the actual number of vertical pixels. It's also waaaaay above 1440 (the actual monitor vertical res) in case you hadn't noticed tongue.gif

The 3hz can be worth it you want to play a game at 100 or 50fps or watch a video at 100 or 50fps to achieve perfect sync and 0 dropped/repeated frames. It's also good for people like me who love round numbers smile.gif

I'm already running it at 97hz, will I notice difference 3hz? smile.gif ..wonder if its safe to push the monitor to 100hz as its already being push to 97hz

Nope 3 hz does not make a diffferents. Gaming vsync cap will be 97fps instead of 100fps. honestly after owning a 120hz i cannot really stay in 60hz anymore, everything is so choppy. It was almost unoticable going from 120hz down to 100hz but going from 100hz to 60hz was the big perfomance drop.

I got Catleap w/ speaker from Dream-seller...this tempered glass version people been talking about.. Is it any difference really from the non-tempered glass? Picture look better???

If i recall someone mention that tempered vs non-tempered has no advantages in term of quality of images//graphic ... beside just the better protection from damage.

Is that correct?

And also the prescision 2701 and 2702, what monitors are they? haven't heard of them. Link me up if you got one to some info on them. Thanks!


See post #4 for the different Catleap Q270s available.  Also see the Yamakasi link above on the other monitors they produce.  I am assuming the 2701s and 2702s are the highest end monitors they make.

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?


1.  Not sure no one has received a multi yet to test it out.

2.  Yes it does - you can click the link in the monitor section above to the manufacturers site - towards the bottom (through all the Korean) you see a big OSD in English.

I am running mine at 85 atm and don't notice the difference to be honest.  All personal preference.  I have 120s at home, my Alienware 3Ds in my Tiamat sig, and when I get on this I don't see any change.  Could just be me who knows.

Those are posted in the fourth post.

Yes, all manufacturer's lie about response time - it is a LOT worse than you think on ALL monitors.  I am currently looking for the link to a website that does independent testing of all the manufacturer's lies about monitors.  It is a fascinating read to see independent tests on these things and to read how it is physically impossible to get some of the stats manufacturers claim their monitors can do.

This is a personal preference question really.  There are no advantages/disadvantages to having tempered vs. non-tempered glass on a monitor.  It is purely ascetics and protection I suppose (if you really need it).  Be aware that all of these monitors, Achieva, Catleap, Crossover, with tempered glass are not going to be perfect as one manufacturer has stated that these lower end (all of these are the low end 27s they produce) with glass head to PC dens and get abused.  That is why we are seeing many glass monitors come in with some sort of dust/hair/specs behind the glass (yes, someone had an eyelash on his screen.)  Not all have issues, but many do.
