So , hi , here's another screen VS. i will be Gaming using a GTX 690 (100hz max for the Catleap i heard) and i have some trouble choosing between the 2 so could someone help me ?
I have never seen a 120hz monitor but heard of them. Same for the high resolution (1440p). redface.gif

Depends on what games you play. FPS I would go with the 120Hz TN. Everything else, the Catleap.

If it was me i would suggest a more modern 120Hz display ie: BenQ XL2420T. The Samsung is a beautiful display but you seriously are paying a premium for nothing more than aesthetics and branding. Plus it has no adjustable stand and no VESA support, the BenQ has both and for less money.

The Catleap monitors are great but they are very hard to get hold of, and should the Catleap experience issues later down the line you'll be hard pressed finding one again, they are pretty damn rare.

No they're not, you can get them on eBay from specialist importers. The only problem is if something is wrong you will have a very hard time getting it replaced/repaired especially if you can't read/speak Korean.

You should have a look at the Catleap owners club on OCN.

Think he was talking one that did 100hz but those are going to be easy to get soon.

Alright , thank you all for the inputs , i will take another look at the Benq xl2420t (heard of it) and i hope its "gamer" features are not here to compensate some kind of lack weakness (performance,...)
