Tbh I wouldn't buy any of those koreans except shimian for $320~. Nobody really lives in Korea and most countries have taxes etc. bringing the crossover price to around $450 if you cheat which is very close to $620 Dell, far too superior to them. Those monitors are only worth it if you are really poor or buying more of them but again, if you are poor you probably don't have the power to run anything else then movies/low games.

I dont feel so poor. I only want to get informations first and then choose the best offer.
I want to upgrade my computer but dont want to buy overpriced HW...

I hope you will enjoy wasting $430+ on this, I wish you the best and hopefully it won't die after few weeks.

Doomsayer much? I've had my Catleap since March 2012, and sans minor glitches (usually remedied by ensuring the cables are secure), I've had no issues.

Just survived a move and everything. Sure, it put it all back in its box, but still.

That's pretty much unheard off, $400 monitor lasting 9 months (like some kind of achievement),4 months till it dies smile.gif
Tbh if the U2713HM didn't drop to $620 I would go with shimian or crossover and count down 1 year till it dies or pick some 120hz.

Woah there. That's the norm. Even though some people's monitors are no longer working, I can say with confidence most people's are working just fine. Mine included - and I've been fiddling with mine more than most, seeing as how mine goes up to ~115 hz. It's been 9 months now and it still works fine. The only problem? My front pane of tempered glass fell off and I had to tape it back on with better double sided tape. Yes, the Dell U2713hm is higher quality, but that doesn't mean that these things are all gonna die right away.

Monitors like these have been around for several years. They are just now getting popular. I know several people that have monitors from around 2010 that are made by some random korean brand, are 1440p and are still working.

This whole Catleap thing isn't something new. I have no doubt that they will go for more than a year unless you abused them or something. You do realize that these things are exactly the same as a normal monitor minus the fact that they may have some screen imperfections, right?

I've dropped mine, DIssasembled it, Done all sorts of horrid unspeakable evil things to mine and it still works, Alas my desktop is dying as is my laptop and i've not the money to replace either (Only the case on my laptop is dying, Where as my desktop's mobo is going out, Turns out the Z77 sabertooth not so tough afterall)


Has anyone ever used this with an active mini dp to Dual link DVI adapter with success?

Educate me then, please

First of all you said most countries have taxes that make these monitors $450? Most people on this site are in the USA, which makes alot of these monitors $330-$350, not $450, second you said you have to be POOR to buy one of these? I'm definitely not poor and mine has been running strong for almost a year since I got it. Third, you said if you were buying these not only were you poor you wouldn't have a system to run it anyways, well my system absolutely crushes yours...and runs it just fine. But keep stereotyping, you only look like an idiot

You didn't even get what did I say. Yes, your rig is way better, why would you go with cheap korean toy if you can buy expensive and high quality ones? If I had that rig I wouldn't let it run monitor like this even if you got lucky and didn't get that bad piece. I'm sure those 900 pages arn't about how awesome those catleaps are.

I bet you wouldn't be so proud of you screen if you got bad one and had to pay $100's to ship it back and wait weeks for it and even bother with the sellers trying to explain you that "you are holding it wrong, go away"
