hopefully I will be ordering my 3 monitors this week 2 se 1 multi and i will posts tests and stuff with them running side by side biggrin.gif

try setting ur xbox to 720p it may fix that issue biggrin.gif

For the Yamakasi Catleap 2703, does anyone know if these panels have a higher amount of dead pixels?

I noticed both of bigclothcraft's ads for the 2703 say it can have up to 15 (fifteen) dead pixels.

That seems unusually high...

Can any 2703 owners chime in on who they purchased from, and how many (if any) dead pixels found?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your replies guys! Can't wait for my new monitor to arrive. I'm no way a pro gamer, so I guess everything will be fine.

wow, up to 15 dead pixels is way to much, it was up to 5 before and his other monitors are still listed at up to 5 dead pixels.

I have sent him a question asking is it a typing error.

This is why I bought my monitor some time ago. I feared that with the worldwide raving about these, they might start to sell lower grade panels to meet demand. Either that or prices might rise, or both.

FINALLY I got to upload pics of the new monitor. Like we said a few pages back I don't think anyone here bought the 30" Yamakasi Leonidas 300 (2560x1600) so I wanted to share for anyone on the fence. Don't mind the set up, this is the table we built my brother's computer on recently. I'm slightly homeless atm but I'm rebuilding my rig with insurance money and this monitor was the first purchase to replace an eyefinity set up. I highly recommend going for these super resolutions over multi-monitor, but I digress...

All in all I'm very happy with it, a quick list of pros and cons.

Pros :
- Tons of real estate, personally I love the height of 16:10
- Accurate color, duh it's an IPS
- No noticeable ghosting or input lag
- Very classy metal finish
- Solid tilt, swivel, height-adjustable stand
- AG coating kills glare and reflections
- Much cheaper than 30" competitors
- No dead pixels or dust

Cons:
- AG Coating blurs some dark blacks together
- Overall black levels (dungeons with realistic lighting mod) average or below average
- Darker scenes suffer from poor viewing angles
- Slight buzzing on backlight, not a problem for headphone users or gamers
- Dang heavy

Feel free to ask any questions. Overall this thing would be pretty much perfect if it came in glossy. I would recommend this thing to most gamers or photo editors. The exception being if you play games like Skyrim and have blackout lighting mods or horror style games where you spend a lot of time in the dark. Even then I didn't find navigating dark dungeons any more than a minor annoyance. For your majority of games (I plan on using it primarily for Guild Wars 2) it will not be an issue.

I been watching the prices slowly creep up, but then they go on special, I definitely wouldn't being buying a Korean ips if the possible dead pixel count could be up to 15 dead pixels

Hello from Korea! wave2.gif

I found this thread while searching for information on a monitor I found locally in a pc parts shop. After speaking very little with the salesman he plugged the monitor in and all I could say was WOW!!! They were asking 254,000 KRW which at todays exchange rate comes down to $222 USD. I heckled a bit and ended up talking him down to a flat $200. thumb.gif I ordered one on the spot and get to pick it up tomorrow, I'm really excited. Its a glass verison with speakers if you were wondering but never the less I'll report back with pictures. cheers.gif

The hum is back. The instensity changes depending on the web page I am on. To me that indicates that the power draw is fluctuating. It probably doesn't have anything to do with whether or not a website is utilizing sound but instead the color intensity of the webpage. The more intense the color the more power it draws. The larger the power draw the more pronounced the hum in the speakers. Everything is plugged into the UPS so the only piece of the puzzle that is questionable to me is the actual monitor power supply. I'm not an electrical engineer so I don't know if this is the case for sure but it is my best guess. Anyone else have any ideas? Could be something with the monitor or maybe the mount causing issues?
