Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 69

post #681 of 11298
I finally got my monitor in yesterday. I ordered it the morning of the 5th. The mail man didn't even try to walk up to the door to deliver it. He just put a note to pick it up at the post office. The monitor so far is perfect. No dead pixels. I thought the stand was leaning like the rest of them but I looked and there was a screw sitting under the base. I didn't see any back light bleed, but I forgot to check for it. Also this is a 2C. I don't know if I will even try to overclock it.

Ordered Q270 no speakers from dreamseller on 3/8, just saw my favorite three little words "Out For Delivery". OC and pixel review later tonight.

Just registered, first post - thanks to everyone for the excellent information (been lurking here and in the original Achiva thread for the last week).

Refer to this thread. I also asked a question that you might find pertinent in the review thread ' 3'

Thanks for the link Gloomy. I hope I don't have to start digging out bad capacitors already frown.gif

chances are you are too late to get the OC mondel as most of those who got it where the original buyers pre march.
Small wonder.

Thanks, that became apparent a few days after I ordered :-/ But hey, you never know, so I'll be giving it a shot anyway.

The 100hz was certainly gravy, but remembering the great experience i had with IPS in in my old T60p and my even older 24" Dell LCD, I am still really excited about getting a 1440p IPS panel for sub-400 bucks!

Ok, so I got my Catleap in and did a quick setup:

The good:
Fast shipping.
Well packed, bubble wrapped was thick.
No dead pixels.
Looks amazing, so much it sucks looking at my other monitors.
No problem using a regular computer cable with the power brick.

The bad:
The silver back plate was broke off. I was going to remove it anyway, so this saves me from having to take it apart. There was no damage to the box or the inside, it's just flismy.
Backlight bleed is worse than my Dell 22" IPS LCD's. Again, not a big issue, but you can definitely see it.
It's a 2C, so the most I can get out of it is 65Hz.

The meh:
The stand does not lean like others, but it definitely is not as solid as I would like, but I am going to mount it anyway, so it doesn't really matter.
The included DVI cable is short, so will probably need a new one.

I will post pics in a bit, have some work to do before I get to play.

I just got my Catleap delivered and had nothing but the back light turn on when i plugged it into my PC. Solved the problem by opening the display up and reconnecting the cable connecting the display, seems like it got loose during shipping.

Wow. Wish I noticed dcsamsungmall had crossovers for sale before I ordered from dream-seller. dream-seller seems to take a while.

Wow that's a lot of backlight bleed. Is that a regular or tempered glass model?
