Any help with this would be appreciated!

Oh man, I was going to order one but your post scared me a little...

Can I ask which model it is?

Never had a problem with my Q270 perfect pixel. Stand is wobbly if touched but whatever. I don't touch the stand or monitor.
















@everyone



So has anyone been successful in getting eyefinity to work or should I order on model with hdmi port? My 7970 only has one
D-DVI port and I plan or order another 7970 which will yield 2. As for a third monitor I'm stumped. Anyone been successful or are the hdmi/ddvi models the same?

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!

Perhaps you could take a picture or video and show us this light bleeding?

He means to use the one with two dvi outputs as his primary card and use an HDMI or displayport adapter for the third monitor

You suggest I get one under Perfect Pixel then? I ehar it doesn't matter and it's not worth it as it's a gamble every way.

Another new problem with my Catleap.....

Just got it yesterday and suddenly I've got a new big concern.

Randomly the screen just goes black, the red led power light goes on very briefly, and then the monitor turns back on. The screen may go black again once to a few more times. Then the screen comes back on and stays on. Immediately after this happens I notice that the screen flickers in places. That lasts about 30 seconds to a minute, then it's back to normal with no flicker and no black screen... It's hard to explain the flicker, and it appears to only be on about 1/3rd of the total screen area. It's like each individual pixel is flickers very very fast. After it stops it all looks buttery smooth once again...

Any ideas what's going on? I've checked the power cables, and the DVI-D cable. They are all in very snug. I haven't touched the monitor since I plugged it in yesterday. Could it be loose internal connections or something? Seems that the monitor kind of just loses power briefly several times over 5-10 seconds. Perhaps the power cube is faulty or something?

I'm really enjoying the buttery smooth beautiful colors! However, I wonder if I should return this as faulty and get a new one. After 14 days I'm on my own, and don't want to end up with a screen that is just completely dead.

Anyone else with this issue?

Has anyone here gotten the 2703 "gaming" edition that can give their opinion on it? I found one for pretty cheap and I'm considering getting it. Also, did anyone here that bought on eBay get the extra 3 year warranty with Squaretrade that's ~$50? Thinking I should go for that.
