post #991 of 11285
I ordered one yestarday from Green-sum, but I am still unclear about the power supply. I live in Estonia, and we got these in our walls: http://www.google.ee/imgres?num=10&hl=et&gbv=2&biw=1680&bih=913&tbm=isch&tbnid=0qAvXyv24f029M:&imgrefurl=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:C_plug.jpg&docid=lc17bS3GwZgD_M&imgurl=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/26/C_plug.jpg&w=559&h=280&ei=ajJnT9PeGpPP4QTuzs2ICA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=904&vpy=162&dur=1108&hovh=159&hovw=317&tx=201&ty=108&sig=111211857739137877973&sqi=2&page=1&tbnh=84&tbnw=167&start=0&ndsp=44&ved=1t:429,r:4,s:0.


Could some one clarify if I actually need to buy some adapter or anything, or it will work out of the box and I will be able to plug it in.

According to photos and reviews, catleap's power supply has a standart Euro jack: 2 contacts & ground. Don't laugh if i said the stupid thing, please))) But according to some sellers, it comes with C plug for Korea... So probably better to wait for the monitor & buy something after if it's not compatible.

Thanks Freez.
About the buying, well, if my electricity socket wont be compatible with w/e the Catleap will come with I will have to order one from Ebay which will take about 2 weeks. frown.gif

Better to be sure in advance.


If any Europeans with standard Euro electricity socket could confirm that it works with their jack, would be great.

I am still unable to get Toasty's LUT loader to load at startup. If I click the same shortcut on my desktop, the colors change slightly, but it will not do it on boot.

Any suggestions?

Yep, it's awesome. I have been testing quite a few blu-ray's on this monitor, and I have to say it's much better than my 1920x1200 HP IPS. The lack of anti glare coating makes the colors stand out, but you really have to control the light in the room more. The higher pixel count on the 27" panel helps the quality as well, even with a 1080p source.

Europe and South Korea share the same C, F plug standard for wall sockets. Voltage is the same too ( 220-240v ). The difference is in the frequency whereas the EU have 50Hz , South Korea have 60Hz. The power supply that is provided with the monitor handles 220-240V / 50-60Hz , so there shouldn't be any problem.

IT'S ALIVE!!!!!

 

 

So the swap was a complete success!  Here are some pics to show y'all!!  Sorry for the large files - just wanted to get some good pics up.

 

THE TWO PCBs NEXT TO EACH OTHER - NON-OC TOP, OC BOTTOM

FIRST PLUG IN

PROOF!  I ONLY HAD 97hz IN MY CUSTOM - 100HZ COMES UP AS NOT SUPPORTED.

I have sent pics to the suppliers I am in contact with so they can check if sourcing these PCBs is possible.  Of course, I will let everyone know as soon as I hear something.  For those Achieva/Crossover folks still need pics of the internals to see if this swap will work for you.  Need back of the monitor (sticker), up close of P/N of top panel PCBs (left and right), Panel PCB, and DVI PCB (cables would help too.)  See the first post for the type of pics I would need.


Fingers crossed we can get these PCBs sourced!

My Catleap came with a standard plug as we use in Europe (properly the same they use in Korea), so I'm 100% sure you will not have a problem with that.

Awesome job!! Thanks for taking the chance for all of us! thumb.gif

Can't wait to hear more about the possible options for exchanging to a faster control board.
