Just opened my q270 non tempered glass bought from dreamseller.

First off, great packaging, over an inch and a half of bubble wrap all the way around. Box looked brand new, not a single ding or dent.

Monitor is perfect, aside from the usual tilt to the right everyone is talking about.

Sort of taken aback by it right now lol, coming from a crappy 4 year old 1080p 21.5inch tn panel this is pure heaven.

OK I've narrowed things down a little bit.

If the shimian is connected to the computer on boot, whether off or with no power to it whatsoever, my computer doesn't make it to windows (not sure where it stops)

If I have another monitor connected to the other DVI port and boot up with the shimian connected, I boot into 800X600 on my other monitor with a blank shimian looking for signal. My OS doesn't see the monitor when this happens.

If I boot my computer with no shimian attached, it boots fine and if I connect it, I get the system sound that I attached new hardware. I can see the monitor in my display options (even shows the name!), but by default the monitor is not displaying anything and if I choose "extend desktop to this monitor" I get the generic error "unable to save display". Same thing on my roommates 6950 2gb on the correct port, which I believe is the same model card as mine.

Leading me to believe that this card is possibly incompatible. I'll be trying it on an nvidia 560ti later so we'll see. If it is incompatible, no biggie. I don't have a big problem with getting a new vid card and selling my current one. I use 3 monitors, two at 1920*1080 and want to use the shimian. I don't care about 3 screen gaming at all, just need it for working. I only have one pci-e port so I need to be able to do it all from one card and it looks like a 560ti doesn't have 3x ports. Any recommendations on cards that would work in my situation?

Thinking about 3x of these to replace my 3x HPw2408's....Going to have to turn down the settings for most games, my 6970 crossfire setup will run out of steam with this many pixels....

Has anyone removed the bezels completely for eyefinity? Can some of you guys who have these measure the bezels?

I am using a catleap q270, my bezels are 1inch top/left/right, 1.5 inch bottom.

See here 4th post under stand removal for dissasembly instructions, shows a lot about how it would be to take out the panel.

is there anyone that bought the Q270 SE (without speakers) that can confirm the higher refresh rates on their monitor?
post #1969 of 4784
I ordered my catleap Q270 SE on 3/8 from green-sum, but I haven't received any type of tracking number or shipment confirmation on ebay. Is this normal?
post #1970 of 4784
Yeah I had to ask for the tracking number after 3 or 4 days, but it was well on the way. Just ask him, surprised he doesnt send the trace # but his feedback is good so no worries.
