Think I would buy from DreamSeller if I was getting a 2703

 

But I did ask BCC if that was a typo and he said it wasn't.

His reply

"Hello
In this monitor,
according to our dule, accepted dae pixel is up to 15pcs.
Thanks

 

- bigclothcraft"

 

 

 

 

For the 2703 monitor

Bigclothcraft

700

 

Dream Seller

700

 

that is the policy for ALL A- panels - it is the industry standard that they are quoting you.  A grade panels are 3 dead or stuck anywhere on the screen, but have a higher rate of perfect pixel - 70%+ compared to 40-50% for A- panels.

I have no authority to tell the OP how to run this club. If one spends any time reading posts on "slickdeals.net," which is how I found out about the excellent Catleap monitors in the first place, a great emphasis is placed on making the front page of posts as informative and not-misleading as possible.
I respect your defense of your forum; however, the previous poster's implication that something important buried on page 12 of 700+ is somehow good enough is absurd. The front page is visually informative and attention grabbing, and Internet searchers who find something informative should not be expected to have to search for the negation of their intentions, just to see if the negation takes precedence. I will accept my responsibility for not doing my due diligence, and now I am paying the price by having to write this appeal to logic to help future seekers.
I am appealing to the integrity of any moderators of this club to make a change to the "Overclock Instructions" by adding anything that informs the user of the situation; for example, one line: "ONLY for monitors pre-Feb 2012 - see FAQ" so further seekers will not become easily entangled in a risky, dead-end procedure.
For anyone else who comes here with a problem with screen tearing in Windows or Firefox with a GTX 670, this solved problem:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1267794/gtx-670-ftw-screen-tearing

 

No offense, but the FAQ should always be the first point of entry for the vast majority of people since it includes little tidbits you may not have known.  As Gnarly said - I removed the OC sections since they are grossly out of date with the current state of things.  The information was put back in.  I see no reason to change those sections as the majority of people on here know there are very few OC monitors out there and where to find them if they needed one or even additional information.

Just got my Catleap Q270 SE from pallascopi that I ordered on Sat. It just came today (Tue). I got some strange FCC 740 form issue but sent an email to pallascopi and he took care of it. I couldn't find any dead pixels and backlighting seems to be ok (I'm in a very bright room atm so I can't really tell). The monitor comes with a very slight green tint but that was easily taken care of with software calibration.

I was holding my breath the entire weekend. All in all, I am extremely happy with this purchase! I am so glad I stumbled upon this thread. I was ready to jump on a $400 1080p LG.

My second monitor from pallascopi just came in, I'm afraid to look for pixels because of that saying but otherwise it seems perfect. Well, aside from the stand, but that's expected.

It looks like it was purely FedEx's fault on that first one, still waiting on the claim result to see how it gets sorted out.
post #7615 of 11304
Yeah, that's what I was afraid of. He just sends the monitor with no double packing. But I lucked out. And yes the base is less stable than the some of the people I've dated.
post #7616 of 11304
I actually got that same FCC form, filled it out myself with no problems. He apparently took care of it the first time but for whatever reason I got the call this time around.

I guess it just depends on whether he's awake or not for the call when FedEx gets the package in Anchorage.
post #7617 of 11304
Well I finally got mine after nearly a month. Good thing it doesn't work at all, it really makes up for the time I've spent waiting for it rolleyes.gif

I only tried it briefly on two different machines but I get no display signal at all, I'll have to look at it more after I get home from work.
post #7618 of 11304
I finally pulled the trigger and bought one. biggrin.gif

I went with the newer 2703 from Bigclothcraft. Can't wait to get it! So worried that I'll get a dud. I'm so ready to join the club wheee.gif

I ordered a catleap 2703. Am I able to use the default stand and an aftermarket arm mount at the same time?
post #7620 of 11304
FYI everyone - I was able to get the Catleaps to work with my MSI Lightning 7970's.

Here is what you need:

I hope this helps anyone else who has/had problems.
