Hey OP, does it seem like the bezel/housing are somewhat removable?

You realize that's an artist rendition of the monitor and not a photograph of the monitor. Buying that one, you might just be in for a disappointment when you find out its the same as OP's monitor.

Hey guys, I jsut had my korean roommate translate this image from the above "spoiler alert":

295

and the two things from the bottom say glass and speakers, which seem to imply that the ipsb has NO speakers, but YES on the glass.

Take it as you will. Now I'm REALLY interested in this monitor!

i know we all complain about the price tags of dell, hp, hazro and especially nec monitors. but buying a warrantyless monitor from across the world is what's hot on ocn now? one of you is gonna get one with dead pixels then what?
another one's gonna get one that will fail in weeks then what?
another one of you will get one doa. then what?

that $700 dell monitor doesnt seem to expensive now.. i'd rather spend $700 and be covered than play russian roullette with $400.

my feeling is that the big players have something planned under their sleeves and have sold or are selling these panels to these smaller companies for now making way for the newer stuff. maybe the next 2560x1440 120hz ips monitors are around the corner.

the big "corporate greed" players would shut them down by either buying them up or just using the trade agreements to shut em down. trade agreements are there "to protect consumers". rolleyes.gif
they are sort of credible that they are korean products. if they were chinese they'd definitely be junk lol.

You say it like there is a high chance of getting a dead pixel...these are the same panel as the Dell and Apple 27". The chance of it having a dead pixel is pretty damn low.

Also, if it is DoA and within 7 days, you can return for a refund or replacement on their cost.

Thinking I'm going to order the Catleap, looks like it has a DVI and Dsub input, which implies a scaler, no?

I hope so. Everyone's orders should come in next week.

Not particularly. There aren't many visible screws, and the plastic feels pretty solid.

I didn't as far as I know. Like someone else said, it may be the free trade agreement, or it may be the fact that my seller marks it as a "gift".

Lol, if it comes in doa, just buy another one. It'll still be about the same as a American 1440p monitor.

But your'e right, that's the catch. Buying this monitor is a gamble: if something goes wrong, there's no US manufacturer standing behind it to help you out.


EDIT: Also what's with the rumors of the glass on the Catleap? My achieva does't have a glass screen, but if the catleap does, it's a tremendous bargain. I'm hoping someone gets a Catleap in soon, so they can give us info about that one.

I can read a little Korean but not as good as someone's GF though.

 

shimian models.JPG

The last 2 entries are for Speakers and Glass.

 

Gmarket advertizes the Shimian QH270 Lite as a sub model of IPSBS (see my post #24) and so it is not exactly the IPSBS. The difference is it has the glass face same as the IPSB, I think. (Edit: bruce just confirms in the post above that the Lite does not have a glass screen)

 

Regarding the dead pixel, I can share a little of what is happening in the Chinese market. 2nd tier companies are selling equivalent monitors in China.  Not only the basic model is being sold, higher end models (with more inputs) are also being sold (with higher price, of course).  All these monitors are advertized to come with panels of 2 grading:- 'A+' and 'A' .

'A+' refers to perfect panel that guarantee zero dead/bright pixels.  'A' only has 3-pixel policy.  Exactly the same model with same panel but with 2 gradings. The price difference is about US$25 to $30.  The buyer makes the choice when ordering.

 

This info about 2 gradings is useful for reference because all these monitors (Shimian, Catleap, Crossover, all Chinese counterparts) use the same LG panel.  It could be Shimian and Catleap only build their monitors with A+ panel while the Chinese counterparts use both. (And kudos to the Chinese sellers because they make this clear and up front to the buyers so that the buyers have a choice of either panel.)   Or, Shimian and Catleap also use both gradings too.

 

So, I think if one gets a Shimian/Catleap and finds zero dead/bright pixel, he can celebrate.  If 1/2/3 bad pixels are found, then has to swallow them hard.  (My Korean is far from enough to look for this dead pixel policy in Shimian website.  Perhaps someone else can.)
