- These are purchased on eBay from South Korea. Suggested sellers are Samsung_Korea, GreenSum and BigCloth
- 2B models (READ: those shipped in February 2012 and 120hz.net exclusive limited runs) Catleap monitors can be overclocked to run 100hz+
- Newer Catleaps seem to have a top OC limit of 65-67hz.
- A PCB swap is possible to make newer Catleaps OC to 100hz+ and 120hz.net has been looking for a factory to produce the PCB, but its a difficult job, and only expected in 2013. The PCB when produced is expected to cost $50-$80 and will be in a very limited supply.
- No 240V/120V step down transformer or EU adapter needed. All you need is a generic PSU cable (AKA kettle lead)
- It's a glossy display, no AG coating
- Inputs will vary depending on the model you purchased. Dual DVI, audio, power, and HDMI are the only inputs (most will have power/DVI only.)
- It's an 8 bit display.
- No OSD (on this basic "Lite" model), just LED backlight brightness (and volume as applicable).
- It has an LG IPS LCD panel, the same one found in 27" iMacs. The Dell u2711 uses the LM270WQ2, these use the LM270WQ1.
- Yes, it's fine for gaming. Due to the lack of any extra inputs input lag is on par with a 720p TV. only the very best FPS players could argue for a lower GtoG lag time. I went from a 2ms panel to this and I cant tell a difference, aside from the catleap being incredible.
- It's 60hz default, not 120hz.
- Monitor has a VESA mount (3" square). a portion of plastic at the rear is easily removable for easy access to it.
- There may be a valid manufacturer's warranty, but it requires you to ship the monitor back to Korea (roughly $130 shipping.) Some sellers have started offering 14 day returns (same deal with shipping costs though.)
- The stand does tilt back and is pretty wobbly.
- Some sellers ship FedEx others EMS. EMS, once it enters the Ireland, is handed over to An Post.
- There are more models, similar to Catleap out there, They're using the same panel but different stands etc. other are the Achievia Shiminay etc Only the catleap has the potential to overclock.
- expect to be hit by customs anywhere from €50-€80. budget for it. Fedex usually posts you the letter a week after you receive it, but may hold it and expect customs upfront, as well as proof of purchase.
- Delivery is usually between 3-6 days to Ireland.

ToastyX for all the work he's put into OCing and colour profiling.
