for lazy people
Damn you erocker, you made me buy one :\
The guy that started that thread is working on getting different, overclockable mainboards for the Catleaps. Hopefully it works out, especially if they cost around fifty bucks. To be honest though, it's just not necessary as if you are currently using a TN panel, lower resolution monitor, getting one of these you'll be amazed.
My Catleap is getting delivered tomorrow. I am really excited! Anyone have some ICC profiles I can download? Please reply with links. Also, I do not think I will be OC the hz on it, 60 hz is what my 1080p Asus runs at and it has never bothered me any, so why risk it.
Will I need to buy a power brick? It's the SE model with no tempered glass and no speakers.
Nevermind, just found profiles and answers to my questions. However, the 7970 has a different CCC layout so maybe I don't need ToastyX's CRU program to make it 85 hz, will find out tomorrow when I play with CCC.
I doubt you will get any where close to 85hz, as the later models (C onwards) do not clock that high as confirmed by Erocker@65hz, mine which will do 66hz and countless others on OCN.
I am running it at the default 60hz anyway as it's fine for my needs.
Mine's in Paris, @ the moment
That site still had mine being at heathrow when it was in my hoemtown so I don't think it's that accurate.
Heathrow is near you: Paris isn't near me.
It was struck at heathrow for days when in reality it was being driven up the country by courier, likely yours will go straight from Paris to Portugal as there were no direct flights, I wouldn't worry too much as delivery times have been spot on for most of the people who bought these to say they were shipped with free P+P from S Korea!
Enjoying a croque monsieur?
It seems ...
It's supposed to arrive @ customs tomorrow: hoping it's "stay" there doesn't cost me an arm, a leg and / or more ...
MY CATLEAP JUST CAME IN FROM FEDEX, ORDERED ON FRIDAY FROM DCSAMSUNGMALL
just hooked it all up, no dead pixels, I really really want a new stand though, can someone help me out? newegg/amazon links only please. this monitor is fantastic, I just need a new stand, it tilts the monitor to much forward and you can't adjust it.
its the tempered glass one with speakers... I had no idea which one I would be getting, I am ok with the glass either way, its not bad. the speakers though I could care less about and will never use.
Let me clarify, I don't want a wall mount, just a new stand.
Please do not double/triple post. Use the edit button.
This is a good stand: http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/...me/products/DisplayMountingSolutions/MA110MB/
It's available at both Newegg and Amazon.
Sorry, ah I see the edit button now. new to this website I am sorry. took me a couple days just to find the signature edit
edit:: thanks for editing it into one post as well
edit:: I just ordered it off Amazon, had some gift cards so I got for $32 new. thanks a lot for the help erocker. this is a fantastic monitor. now I just can't wait for my stand >.> hehe
I kind of wish I bought that stand myself... I bought a stand for a hundred bucks that clamps to my desk and looks like the arm of a robot. It's really freaking nice though, I lose the portability. Meh, I don't really move my monitor off my desk anyways.
Yeah...and a bit big (not to mention beloved) to be carting around anyway I'd say.
You can get Monitor stands/arms on ebay for cheap.
I have on of these and I love it.
Thanks for the info, E. This is my next purchase.
the catleap 6500k ICC profile someone posted on overclock net really makes the calibration and colors look amazing by the way. just personal opinion. it's not bad straight up out of the box either. I got some 2560 x 1440 wallpapers tonight and played a couple games... it is so beautiful I have no words to describe the picture quality of the Catleap.
shout out to dcsamsungmall or w.e his name is, for being plain awesome and the fastest shipping I have ever seen on the face of the earth.
Monoprice has lots of stands.
edit: maximum capacity is 33lbs which is about a 37" television so don't worry about mounting a 27" monitor...
The PCBANK PB2700 seems to be an alternative to these. http://www.overclock.net/t/1228729/better-27-ips-from-korea-pcbank-3view-pb2700
The Crossover 27Q LED-P Can apparently be bought around the 380~410$ by making offers, which has a better stand than the Catleaps and a chance of OCing
God I spent too much money on my stand...
I'm starting to regret this monitor purchase:
And that's the provisional price i have to pay: it could get higher
Good old fashion government robbery is what this is, IMO. For starters, the IVA (tax) of 284.77 is 65.5 and they charge 73.64: where does the difference come from?
I admit: i'm clueless regarding this sort of thing since this is the 1st time i've ever bought something from abroad and i had to sign up to both eBay and PayPal to do it, but this seems way excessive
Yeah, that's pretty awful.
