From what I have read, the general consensus of this and other threads is that it does not really improve your odds of getting a monitor without dead pixels. It seems to be more of a marketing gimmick designed to get some more cash from you. If you get a monitor with some dead pixels, it seems most will refund the fee but not replace the monitor. On the other hand if you get a monitor free of dead/stuck pixels you just paid more for it than you otherwise would have.....

Just found out 2 great things about my catleaps biggrin.gif
1) I can set it to 1080p (because the computer does the scaling) which is good for playing games since 1440p doesn't work so well on some games.
2) Also I had no idea that even the basic ones have a brightness control biggrin.gif

hey guys

ive been lurking this thread and OC.net for quite a while. your information was very helpful in my decision to buy a catleap. i got my catleap on monday of this week and it was great until today. i came home from work and pressed space to unluck my computer and my login screen came up for roughly a second, then went black. the power LED went from green to solid red. all i get from it now is the red power LED. when i press the power button nothing happens.

i looked at the troubleshooting FAQ and tried the suggestions that i could ( multimeter is at work, going to purchase another DVI cable as well) but im still getting the red LED only. my suspicion is the power brick, but ill know more tomorrow when i can test it with my voltmeter. just so im being as detailed as possible for you guys ill post my system specs and all that.

2500k stock
gigabyte GA-Z68x-UD3H-B
8gb ddr3 corsair vengeance
asus GTX570 DirectCUii stock speeds
Windows 8 Release Preview

all my drivers are current. the monitor had been working just fine prior to today. any suggestions and comments are welcome and appreciated.

Thanks everybody!

good lord the prices have gone up!! I couldn't even afford to buy one now at this price, thank goodness I jumped into the deep end when I did. My internet gambles rarely go (or look) this good. If something happens its all on squaretrade now. I didn't want to take any chances, got the catleap for 309, power brick for 24, and SQtrade for 49 (no coupon). Totally worth it for this panel. For the poster up above, its probably the power brick, those things are SO cheap!

Yeah, but that's economics for you. They don't owe us anything in keeping the price so low. Too bad I waited so long, now I'm hoping the 2703 I bought won't be too bad. Seller now guarantees up to 15 dead pixels instead of 5, and originally I wanted the q270. Those of you with stuck or dead pixels, is it really all that noticable?

No. I actually realized I had two stuck pixels near the center of the screen after about a week. And I noticed that after my second serious run-through for checking for pixels. Even if the pixel is glowing bright red in your face at the center of the screen, it's hard to notice because of the high resolution of the monitor, there are just too many pixels to begin with. (Unless you literally sit less than 1 foot from monitor, not good for eye health I think.)
