No one can answer that question except for the buyer as it really just depends on what you want/need.
How much does the scaler slow response time by? I'm using an ASUS VS248H-P and it has HDMI connections and whatnot, and I have no problem with any lag. Does the higher resolution on the Catleap mean the input lag is horrible when using an HDMI port? How would the lag compare to that of a home theater projector(which, in my experience, is almost unplayable)?
I don't know if anyone has actually sat down and tested it yet as a lot of people aren't paying the premium on the multi versions of the Korean 2560x1440 monitors. I don't think it's an issue with the resolution as it's the mainboards and firmware that introduce the variance of input lag on various displays that are the same size and resolution. The scalers on a TV for instance can add 16ms to 50ms or more of input lag. Most people would consider 32ms to be the upper threshold for input lag on a TV and there are even some monitors that will get into the mid 20ms range. To complicate that it can vary even within the same make/mode due to production variances or running changes in the hardware/firmware. People react to input lag differently as well with some people not being affected by 1 frame (16ms) to 2 frames (32ms) of lag while others would consider it unbearable. Scalers will always add input lag (at least with today's current hardware) but, how much input lag they add and how each person is affected by them varies.
I'm not sure about what input lag levels are on a home projector so I can't really comment on that.
