Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 882

post #8811 of 11297
Hey guys, I'm interested in buying the catleap, but I'm not entirely sure what is what. The above link with the green-sum one looks good to me but whats the difference between the catleap Q270 SE and the catleap Q270SEi . I also see some of the other options in his store like the [Perfect Pixel] one that is about $500 and im assuming that is one guaranteed without any dead pixels? I really want a monitor without dead pixels ideally and I'm not sure how much I can live with dead pixels. I would want to get the white Q270, but I think as long as people don't touch the monitor the non-tempered glass should be fine? I would also want the monitor without speakers as well. Can someone lead me towards the right direction? Thanks in advance!

*Edit*
How can you tell the catleaps are 2B or not too????

Oooooh do document that! Would be very interested in seeing how they would look in surround with no bezel... my god that would be beautiful! Still open to any other suggestions on stand/s, all suggestions are appreciated! thumb.gif

The 270 SE is the model without speakers. The 270 SEi is the exact same model, but according to the post, it allows a higher amount of pixels to fail before it's deemed faulty.

To know if you have a 2B model, anything after Feb/March this year has pretty much been a non 2B. You can get the PCB cards/chips (not sure what they are called! tongue.gif), hopefully by the end of the year from the sounds of things. Non-tempered glass should be fine for most people.

Thanks EvilTeddy. I just saw that there are alternatives of SHiman and the crossover? any particular reason why the catleap is better than the other two?

None really, apart from the stand and price tag its all just personal preference.

Is a new PCB the only solution to my back-light only Catleap?

If so, where do I get this new PCB? I don't care about 100hz, I just want a functioning monitor. Source? Anyone selling?

im loking into a catleap 27" and was wondering why is the Q270SE priced higher than the Q270SEi if the SEi allows a higher amount of pixels to fail before it's deemed faulty? and which would you recommend the SE or SEi

Reread what you've typed and it might make sense smile.gif The SE (on a whole) has a warranty return policy of: 1 dead in the centre, 5 dead around the outside; whilst the SEi has the policy of: 2 dead in the centre and up to 20 around the side before it's deemed faulty (which is a very crap policy!)

I really wish i could have gotten my White 270SE frown.gif Oh well! All of the monitors are pretty much the same, except for the stands/bezel and the PCB but since the OC models are rare now, they're pretty much on par! I'm a little surprised that there hasn't been many comments about the "First FSM-270YG", it's a very nice looking monitor!

From a poll, Shimians have highest failure rate, semi decent stand. Crossover has a great stand, height adjustable, portrait mode, etc, higher build quality, higher price tag.

They all look different, too. If you can get a Crossover for the same price, take that one.
