For the top bolded statement. This is the same as saying that you NEED to get 60 fps from your video card to use a 60Hz LCD monitor effectively.
There is a lot of misinformation floating about. Novices can't distinguish truth from fallacy.

Lets see you run 120hz at 70fps..

Sure you can do it from your desktop... but were speaking gaming here.

You screen cant.. You are processing 70 fps ..

It is strange that it will do that on dvd-i on a old build we got but plugging my recent build with a 670 gtx evga on dvi-p, no post. On my catleap, old build on dvi-i or new build on dvi-p it will always post. Another thing is the first day that he plug his catleap, all was fine. Only on the second day. Very strange.
So we are down to the wiring inside the screen, but it is a pain to open and we dont want to dent it if we need to sent it back. Unless somebody have a brillant ideal on how to solve that, I thing we will sent it back.

Here is the video :

Anyone else have a 2P monitor? I gave no idea if it is OCable or not. How do I turn down the brightness on this bad boy?

As far as I have seen here and on other forums, the only important thing for the graphic card is to have a dual link dvi (both dvi-i and dvi-d) port.
I have tested it also on 4870, 8800gt and my old 4850, even if are not listed as compatible I have read of many that successfully run them with the catleap.
I have also made a video showing my tests here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gYf5wYUJdCY
green-sum told me that:
"By the manufacturer's inspection, if it comes out monitor problem, DOA or other defect, we'll replace new one or refund.
But if the monitor does not have any problem, (there are lots of other situations) by the eBay policy the return and re-sending charges are buyer's duty."
I have tried with a compatible card and a brand new dual link dvi calbe, I don't think I can be blamed of wrong configuration so this must be a DOA case.
What do you think, is there anything more I can try having watched my experiments? (I already tried to re-install the drivers)
Thank you all!
My story is over, I got a working replacement (2G series) by greem-sum, he also offered a refund.
I asked him to check and bubble wrap it before shipping.
I didn't pay for the shipping back, just the customs again.
Thank you for all the people who helped me, especially CursiveQ and rollOver that suggested me to get a replacement instead of a refund.

I noticed that in my working yamakasi the dvi port of the monitor is firm, while in the DOA one wasn't.
I hope this can help to diagnose the problem.

Now I am going to enjoy my monitor, finally! thumb.gif

Can anyone confirm that the monitors will scale down to 1080p via video drivers? I'm thinking about getting 3 for eyefinity, but I want to make sure that I don't need the models with a scaler board. I'm assuming that the ATI Catalyst software can scale down the resolution for me?

I've read from online sources that tapping the monitor a couple times with a microfiber cloth seemed to have fix the problem as well. Thoughts anyone?

I'm interested in installing a Vesa mount and so converting this monitor to a Vesa -mounted monitor is very important to me also. How do the different models compare?

I think it's easier to mount a third-party mount on the newer Q270 LED tempered glass models compared to the older models referenced in the OP. You no longer have to remove that silver bezel on the back, as there is no silver bezel in the first place. However, you still have to open up the monitor, which might require a little patience and careful handling.

\Yeah, sounds correct to me.

Thanks for the lowdown on Crossovers. I'm not sure if I actually have enough money to buy a Crossover vs a Catleap though. Sounds good, I'll do *yet* more research! tongue.gif

So if anyone was paying attention I mentioned that I damaged the ribbon cable on one of my monitors. The so I ordered a new one on sunday so my third monitor and I should be receiving it today. I I hope it is as good as my other ones. The I also contacted bcc about getting a replacement cable he said he has no problem sending me a replacement ribbon cable if he can find one. I he seemed very understanding considering it was my fault

Hello,

I'm considering buying one, and since it seems most of the knowledgeable people about catleap hang around in here, I think you can help me in my decisions.

My personal impression is that bigclothcraft generate the most positive feedback (even if there are plenty of other reputable vendors). However, it looks like the dead pixel policy limit of newer models has changed :
- 15 dead pixels for the newer 2703
- 5 dead pixels for the older (or white) Q270
I could not find this information for some other vendors, on some rare ones there is even a "max 1 dead pixel in the center" limit (in addition to a max 5 dead pixel total) and pictures to describe it.

While i can imaging working with a monitor with 4 dead pixels if I'm unlucky, i think a 14 dead pixels one would get quite frustrating. Does anyone here have some information about this change ? (if not i will email the vendor). Do you think that this change reflect the possibility that the newer model would be more likely to have dead pixels ? (lesser factory quality or controls ?). Does this policy change between vendors or models ?


Do you know if the stand on the newer 2703 is the same, or is it slightly better ? my desk is quite stable, how would the bad OEM stand affect me ?

I'm sorry if those questions were answered before, i tried to go back 15 pages on this topic but there's quite a lot of message to process so i might have missed the info.

Regards,

Stephane
