For those guys who've been using the Yamakasi Catleap for 2-3 months, any issues or failures so far?

I've read about people experiencing screen dimness after a few months of use. Is it a common occurrence ?

I've had mine since early March. Other than initial issues with 'sparkly pixels' in the first month, it has been trouble free since. smile.gif

The 'sparkly pixel' issue seemed to go away by massaging the cable and ensuring an even and secure connection at the ends.

However, the backlight is still on and the blue light on the bottom right hand corner is still on, which indicates that the monitor is still on.
I've tried a new DVI cable to no avail (the one I was previously using is a 24 AWG DVI-D cable from Monoprice). I've ordered a new power brick from eBay, in hopes that that will fix the problem. I will keep you guys updated. In addition to this, I've also tried turning the monitor on/off, replugging in the power supply, pulling the DVI cable in/out, cold rebooting the computer, and plugging the DVI cable into another DVI port. The monitor will turn on and then fade back to black again.
If the new power supply doesn't work, I will be very disappointed about the fact that after 2.5 months of working fine, the monitor decides to die on me. I purchased no warranty because I didn't think I would need it, but now, I wish I did.

I think that the lifetime of this Korean monitors is for just some months. I have one Achieva Shimian, and I'm waiting for the day that it dies mad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

I had to put it out and move it back in.
If only you lived just a little closer I'd do it myself lol

I think that's a great idea. Maybe add an option to state "No issues yet".

Does anyone have the white version? if so, can you guys post some pictures of the white version?
I was not able to find any pictures of the white version of the catleap lol
I really want a white monitor to go along with my new white PC setup.
I just want to check how it looks before splurging $350 on one.
