Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 767

post #7661 of 11286
Jeez.. I haven't been on this thread since we first started it. LOL.



  1. So has anyone found a triple monitor stand for the Q270 yet? I am about to buy 2 more but I want to have a stand ready before I screw myself due to their crappy stands on them.
  2. Also are the Q270s the same and same price or has that changed?
  3. Are there any new or better versions now?
  4. One last question I promise! Can I use a D-DVI to HDMI convert to get eye-finity and will it work? I want to confirm this before buying 2 more. Thanks all!

There is now the Yamakasi 2703, which is the exact same panel as the Catleap, but the casing is a bit nicer IMO, and there's no disassembly required to get to the VESA mounts. For Catleap, there's just the SE (No Speakers), Non-SE, and tempered glass. There's obviously different combinations of the features and perfect pixel is available. Couldn't help ya with the other 2 questions.
post #7663 of 11286
Can someone tell the difference between a Catleap Q270 and a Catleap 2703 ? Or is it the same thing, I am pretty sure it is the same thing but I want to double check.

Howdy Ninja, I'll help out the best I can to help answer your questions:

1. Here is a link for a triple monitor stand, it's a bit spendy, but its good quality from what I hear. http://www.amazon.com/Ergotech-Triple-Stand-Telescopic-100-D16-B03-TW/dp/B007BD0MPM/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics.

2. The good news here is that the Q270's have dropped a bit in price, from when they first came out. I just picked one up 3 days ago and waiting for delivery and only paid $285.00 from BCC.

3. As far as I can tell there are no newer versions out. Still the same ones, just a little cheaper.

4. If I understand this question correctly, there are no active adapters for DSP/mini-DSP to HDMI. For that case you'll have to go: Card (DSP/mini-DSP)
>DSP/mini-DSP to VGA/DVI-D “ACTIVE” adapter or dongle---->DVI-D to HDMI
>Monitor (HDMI).

Check out this link I found for you. It should provide you with the answers you need, and suggest a way for you to achieve what your wanting to do!! Best of luck to you man!!

Just received my Catleap today! Figured I'd join the forums just to post and discuss.

Ordered from G-S on ebay Friday night. Arrived Wednesday afternoon west coast. Was delivered via DHL. 2nd monitor in 2 weeks. My roomy got one about 1.5 weeks ago, so then I got one. He got a slightly different version - the one with a shorter black stand. So I'm in a unique position to actually compare two different versions of this monitor directly.

First look:

-Box came undamaged, all wrapped up like new aside from obvious long shipping. Before turning on - everything appears in excellent condition.
-Set up the monitor with my Radeon 6950 (ghetto unlocked to 6970) - Had to use the DVI-D port obviously.
-Got a blinking green light at first but fixed this by making sure the cable was plugged in securely. As soon as the cable becomes a little detached the power green led will blink and it will go black. No issue though.
-Got it all setup and running in 1440p. My GPU auto set the resolution before Windows even started.

Careful examination of the screen:

-Colors are gorgeous. What prompted me to buy this screen in the first place. Set several full screen solid colors and most are uniform all around.... But here's where some major flaws come in.
X-There's a weird 1inch band on the bottom of the display. It's not very apparent, but noticeable on a solid color background. It's hard to explain. Almost like there is some extra pressure from some internal component pressing on the bottom 1" or so of the LCD screen itself. I really cannot notice it unless it's set to a solid color and I'm looking at the bottom of the screen. Not a deal breaker but I'm a little concerned.
X-When the screen is set to dark grey or all black, it looks BAD. I mean really bad.... There is some horrid back-light bleed. I actually cannot set a background picture with dark edges because the light bleed is horrendous. And it's not even one spot, its an entire corner, an entire edge and part of another corner. It's like someone is shining a flashlight on the inside edge of the screen. Extremely unhappy about this. This cannot possibly be A-anything. My last 2 cheapo monitors were far superior in this regard.
-On the flip side... There are no dead pixels that I can find.
-When playing a game full-screen i can only notice the back-light bleed if it's dark on the edges... Still rather disappointing.

So far, I can see why these panels are so cheap. I'm trading extreme quality on one end for extreme crap on the other. Black levels are no better than my previous monitors - even without the light bleed issue. The color quality and resolution are very impressive, but are severely diminished by the fact that I must avoid anything with dark edges to keep the uniform quality. This is a very mixed bag for me right now. I actually have a 24" VA monitor. The viewing angle is really really bad on it, but the black levels and back-light are extremely good. So far for gaming I feel like the resolution is the only benefit over my VA panel. Also the VA has a lower response time - so there is that as well.. I've only been able to examine my catleap for a few hours though...

I feel extremely unlucky with my panel to be honest. If the back-light issue wasn't there, I'd be a very happy camper about this purchase. I have read so many reviews and virtually none have such bad back-light issues. I would gladly trade the back-light bleed for 5 or even 10 dead pixels. That many deal pixels out of millions is almost nothing when compared to a highly visible bright light lighting up the corners/edges of the screen. I would be sending this back for a replacement if it didn't cost $150 to chip it...

My next step is trying to figure out if there is a way to fix the back light problem. Perhaps taking apart the bezel and adjusting placement and screw tension? Does anyone know what causes back-light bleed? I feel like it's something that's related to construction of materials rather than the screen itself. Any help with this would be appreciated!
post #7666 of 11286
Welcome to OCN first of all! And I have read that taking the bezel apart and taking some screws out and then putting the bezel back on can possibly help. Cant hurt though? Also very nice and informative post, thank you! smile.gif

hello
i'm new here

want to describe my experience from green-sum over ebay.

Ordered my Catleap Q270 with perfect pixel at 08/06 , got it 1 week later because DHL sucks to send it fast to germany but its okay for me got it on Monday.

Package was all fine, in good shape and condition

Now i pluged in all cables and tested this fantastic monitor, i had luck or none? buyed with perfect pixel and had none so it was as i expected when i pay 50€ more. Have also no Blacklight bleeding or minimal at 5zoll distance

I'm very satisfied with this buy and must say its worth the price, comparable monitors costs double the price here in germany.

So overall i am very happy smile.gif

P.S. i can all catleap buyers recommend the color profile from the 1page(catleap d-65). its fantastic the colors are better then the standard. Tested it in Dota2 and other games. But its only worked when i use the "Load catleap d-65" file.

Thank you for posting a comment about the colour profiles i have been searching for the best way to calibrate it and if i can just use them it will save me a lot of money buying a calibrator like the spyder4pro ect. congrats on getting 1 with no backlight bleed that is my main concern now i am waiting for mine to arrive. and don't complain about 1 week some people have waited much longer then that!
