Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 987

post #9861 of 11297
20130602_190846.jpg 4110k .jpg file I have a yamakasi catleap for over a year now. Using a gtx 680. Yday i dusted off my pc including the gpu. When plugged in again there are faint vertical lines that appear mostly on white background and lees on other colors. Thinking i did something to the gtx 680 i swapped it for my old gtx 570. Lines are still there. Swapped the monitor with a Asus vg236 the lines are gone. So it has something to do with the monitor. I did not dust off the monitor by the way. The monitor was never overcloked. Anyone else experienced something similar? Is there anything i can do? I cant stand the Asus (low res, TN, etc). Thanks in advance.

I've had my catleap for over a year, and I occasionally get garbled lines when I boot. Usually just turning the monitor off and on again will fix it.

Also, when I first had it, it would have this sparkly issue that I would fix by turning my rig off, make sure the cable to monitor and PC were secure/resecured. Then massage the cable near the connectors. Then boot up.

If you haven't already, triple check all connections are secure, and gpu is seated fully in the slot.

That's about all I can think of. smile.gif

Hi guys, a am a video editor and image editor.Whice monitor can you suggest me? i have a 2core intel E8500 @ 3,16GHz with a 7GB RAM and a GIGABYTE GEFORCE GTX650 TI BOOST GV-N65TBOC-2GD 2GB GDDR5 ,Windows 7 64bit

Alright, I'm probably going to take the plunge on these monitors tonight or tomorrow, but first I have a couple of questions. While I'm sure these have been answered somewhere in the 900 pages of this thread, I really don't want to read through the whole thing. Anyways, questions:

1) Who should I buy from and why?
2) Is the input lag noticeable when playing games? Does this change if I get the multi-input version (which is the one I'm looking at)?
3) What is the difference in looks between the glass and glossy? Is there a big reason to get glass vs glossy? Do glass displays have more defects (like dust) or does that happen regardless of type?
4) Am I dead in the water if it doesn't work, or can I return for a full refund? (this probably ties into the buyer)
5) How are black levels?

I appreciate any answers, really tired of buying crappy monitors but don't have $1000 to spend on a monitor.

Pretty much any of the Korean IPS / PLS monitors will be best if run at 60Hz. With your rig it would not be powerful enough to run games at
120FPS so getting an overclockable monitor, you would only really benefit from the desktop smoothness.
If you do want 120Hz operation then for your uses I would suggest the Yamakasi Catleap OC Extreme monitor as the Colours are
much better than the QNIX PLS.

There are several good sellers on eBay but I recommend green-sum (see below)

I notice no more input lag on my Catleap or QNIX than I did with my old 24" ASUS VH242 TN monitor.
Keep in mind though that my two monitors are Dual Link DVI-D OC monitors. The Multi input monitors cannot truly overclock, they
skip frames. The Multi input Monitors also have an OSD and scaler so this introduces input lag where the DVI-D input only monitors
do not have an OSD or scaler so basically they have zero input lag.
If the monitor is used mainly for gaming then I suggest you get the Dual Link DVI-D only model, be it an OC monitor or just a
standard 60Hz monitor.

Well imagine your existing monitor with a sheet of glass over the face of it.
The Monitors with Glass over the front are mainly made for PC/Gaming cafe's as a way to protect the screens, really, you
don't need it for home use unless you are really concerned about something hitting your screen.
The Glass panel Monitors CAN get dust stuck between it and the screen during manufacture (most sellers will mention this),
it is really the luck of the draw.
I recommend going for just a standard glossy screen without the glass.

If you purchase through green-sum they are very good with issues, I know of 3 people who have had various issues with their monitors
and green-sum has repaired/replaced all three with no cost to the buyer (green-sum covers return shipping also)

Black levels are really good with all the Korean IPS/PLS screens wink.gif

Hi,

I've been a long time lurking here in the forums. I had my Cat Leap from green sum for 10 months now and still going strong.

I am gonna buy another one and would like to ask if anyone have used this mount:
2 Monitor Mount

If anyone has other suggestion it'll be much appreciated.

I have a glass table so clamp won't work frown.gif

Perfect Pixel the way I understand it is that there will be no dead pixel when the product comes at your door. They checked it thoroughly before shipping it. That's the extra 40$ you paid for.

Perfect Pixel is a marketing term which says they checked the panel for bright pixel defects and found none at the factory. Therefore, the panel that you get should not have any stuck or hot pixels.

Dead pixels (pixels that are permanently dark) are not covered by Perfect Pixel.
