Will the speaker in the Q270 affect any results or increase the chances of receiving a faulty monitor?

No. But if you don't want the speakers, best to get without it.

Hello everyone,

I was going to pull the trigger and buy 2 x http://www.ebay.com/itm/YAMAKASI-CATLEAP-Q270-LED-WHITE-27inch-IPS-WQHD-2560-x-1440-Built-in-Speaker-/330755679078?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4d02932366

from dream-seller but I'm somewhat confused because he offers the same monitor at a higher price but the title is changed to [Free Voltage]+[Pixel Perfect]. Is this going to be a problem if I order the one without the fancy title?


Also for some weird reason dream-seller has listed the Yamakasi Catleap Q270 With Speakers cheaper than the one without speakers. This is shady and I am not 100% confident buying it.

Could someone possibly answer these questions and make me feel confident when buying the Yamakasi Catleap Q270 With Speakers from dream-seller?

Hey guys, does the Yamakasi have the same problems of the Crossover regarding pcb boards? I have a Crossover with the blue pcb board which causes flickering and stuttering on my display. I'm sending it back, thinking of switching to the Yamakasi.

What problems are there?

It makes no difference. It's an issue with supply and demand, more than likely; the ones without speakers are selling faster, so jack up the price a bit to make a bit more profit, slow demand and also to shift demand towards the speaker monitors, as now they're just sitting around doing nothing. (yes they're drop shipping; the logic is still sound for someone in the supply chain)

Free voltage + pixel perfect i guess is the seller's way of saying that you get a 110-240v adapter, and that someone looked at the panel and didn't see any bright pixels on a black background.

The Yamakasi monitors without speakers are more popular because speakers add to monitor bulk.

Do any of you guys know if there is a low-profile card that will work with the catleap? I don't intend on doing much gaming. I currently have a small form-factor case. My understanding is that any dual-link card should work.

Well, I have been a lurker for a while after hearing and seeing these monitors on TWIT. This thread helped me get this one:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-YAMAKASI-Q271-LED-2560X1440WQHD-27-S-IPS-Hdmi1-4a-Monitor-Built-in-speaker-/140796736007?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20c823b207

Seller, green-sum, was prompt in replying to initial emails and had the tracking numbers up quickly.


I bought, it seems , before they went up in price. Mine was $372 shipped.

Ordered late last Saturday night here in Dallas, and was on my porch Wednesday 11am. Pretty quick, indeed.

Bundled for shipment like the pictures already posted.

No damage what-so-ever.
No dead pixils
No lines, no scars, no dings, no scratches.
I used the power cord from my 24" Viewsonic into the supplied brick and it fired right up.

Calibrated easily to my eyes and desires.

Stunning clarity and colors.

Base tilts and swivels, and yes, is a bit wobbly, but nothing that feels unstable or would be bothersome to me.

I have a AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB DDR5 card and it pushes this monitor just fine.

I did download the Hazro HZ27WC manual to understand which menu item switched it to English.

Extremely happy with this monitor.

And they usually sound awful due to low output.

hi all,

i just received my catleap 2703, its the one with glass and only a DVI port yesterday. i'm running a GTX 670m and when I plug it into my computer i get a BSOD. I tested the monitor out on my friends desktop and the desktop picks up that it is there but the screen doesn't display anything. the power brick that came with it says input 170v-220v but there is a sticker that looks like it was placed by BCC before shipping that says 110v is ok. When I have it attatched to my laptop and the monitor turned off then i turn my laptop on then midway through the boot turn the monitor on it flashes vertical lines but nothing else. Any ideas? i have a video of the flash. not sure how to show you it though.

thanks, colton
