So the stand is a lot better?

I believe the stand is worse. I don't remember exactly...it's the standard stands you find on the Shimian, except, of course, this one's different.

The 2703 is just a different style monitor to the Q270 in terms of external design and a different stand.

For some reason the IPS panel also has a higher rate of 'dead pixels' so most places will only guarantee returns above 15 dead pixels (where as the Q270 can be returned if it has over 5 dead pixels.)

Also, I believe the 2703 only comes with tempered glass, so those who don't want tempered glass won't be purchasing the 2703.

There only seems to be one 'specification' for the 2703 which is tempered glass, speakers included, no OSD, single input (dual DVI link) and can have a higher rate of dead pixels. This is why it is cheaper than the Q270. The Q270 has multiple different specifications and has fewer dead pixels on average.

These are the only differences I know of.

Hm...well, it won't make a difference if we get a pixel perfect version of either one...so...yup.

I've yet to see any Ebay e-tailer offering a pixel free variant of the 2703. This leads me to believe that a pixel free variant is few and far between, meaning the probability of actually getting a pixel free variant is very slim.

However, at that resolution even 15 dead pixels will be barely noticeable if they're dispersed.

It all depends on how much you want to pay. Personally I would rather pay the £15 extra for a Q270 with <5 dead pixels rather than risk it, I also like the look of the Q270. However everyone is different and for the price you can't really go wrong with either choice.

The stand is slightly more functional, as it allows for turning without having to move the entire base. The stand of the 2703 is just a solid stand that probably only allows for tilt adjustments.

These are the only differences I know of.

I have ordered two 2703's so far and both of them had zero dead pixels or backlight bleed issues. Also everyone who has posted that I have seen with a 2703 have had perfect screens, that does not mean they are all perfect but I am just saying what I have seen so far (just check back a couple pages and you will see what I am talking about). Green-Sum sells a $305.00 version with the 5 dead pixel guarantee and a 295.00 version with the 15 pixel policy. I usually see the Q270 go for 300-310 bucks so that puts in right in the same range unless you want the pixel perfect. I think there is no option yet for pixel perfect probably just because it is not as popular as the Q270. The 2703 has (IMO) a better stand then the Q270, it may not have the swivel but it feels a lot less wobbly and keeps it level with no tilting. The Q270 seems to have more backlight bleed from the case design and it being too tight, I have yet to see any backlight bleed at all from either 2703. This is nothing scientific of course but I have ordered a Q270 and two 2703's and done the research online. Just wanted to throw my opinion in here about the positives of the 2703.

Sorry for my ignorance and laziness, but I am considering ordering one of these value 1440p monitors. I have a couple questions: firstly, is the catleap still the best one? If so which versions should I get? I appriciate the minimalist look of glass but not if it alters performance and I'm only running one dvi/hdmi input. Lastly, I am very interested in the over locking function will I be able to get it any higher using my gtx 690 or not? Thanks so much for your patience!

1) Catleap, Crossover, Shimians, etc all use the same panel, so they're all equally good. In terms of stand quality, Crossover > Shimian > Catleap. Many people with a solid desk don't have any problem whatsoever with the stand, so that's pretty situational.
2) From cheapest to most expensive usually: Q270 SE = only DVI, no speakers. Q270 = DVI + speakers. Q270 Multi = DVI+HDMI+Speakers
3) Only non-SE and SE catleaps with the 2B serial model number overclock, all other models (whether 2E, 2G, 2C, 2D etc) don't and Multi 2Bs are a scam because they skip frames, so they only do 60Hz even if you OC them. Do a quick google search on where to buy 2B models.

Im sorry, but I really couldnt find a Catleap with SPECIFIED 2B PCB. If someone could point one out, perhaps on ebay, that'd be great.
