I'm sure this has already been mentioned, but at currently 28 pages I can't read them all.
This Shimian seems to be the same as the Hazro HZ27WC. Obviously, they are made at the same factory.
http://www.hazro.co.uk/HZ27WC.php

Here is the review:
http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/content/hazro_hz27wa.htm

Maybe they are different grade, but I'd bet they are the same.
The Hazro is 530€ without shipping and the Shimian is 300€ shipped.

Personally, I'd buy the QH270 tomorrow, if the Z68 supported 2560x1440 over HDMI. It doesn't, so I'll have to wait for my 7970.

Just go with the Achieva Shimian IPSBS model - I pulled the trigger on it a few days ago (I think i'm in the top 3-4 people along with the OP to make the leap). I think it's also the only model that the Dream-Seller guy is selling on eBay....the other seller is selling the IPSB model...and it seems like with the lack of 10-bit depth, tempered glass is honestly not a deal breaker. Most IPS panels don't use tempered glass anyways. Aside from that...OP confirmed that the IPSBS model he received has vesa mounts in the back, not sure about the IPSB...so that's another plus for the IPSBS.

Yes, Achieva is Hazro's OEM. The Shimian and the Hazro use the exact same LG panels....so at the ~$400 shipped that the Shimians are going for, it is quite a steal. Just keep in mind that your only input option on the QH270 is a single dual-link DVI. thumb.gif

From looking over the pic now I see that the tampered glass model has a vesa mount too, and I think in the end I'm going to regret not getting the tempered glass more than having fewer inputs, since it'll be a bigger factor in deciding user experience. 1440p...here I come!

Do let us know for sure how glossy the IPSB model is compared to the IPSBS one...the tempered glass seems to be the only difference between the two, and from all the product pictures, they're making it seem like the IPSB one is somehow more reflective/glossy...so be sure to post pics if that's true. The OP's pics already seem like it's the perfect balance of glossy-ness since it doesn't have AG coating, so I hope that the tempered glass one doesn't turn out too glossy for you. thumb.gif

1st vote!

I remember i read in danawa user comments part
where the yamasaki representative will reply to user questions
he say yamasaki use A~B grade panels
i will find the link for u guys

edit: so i FINALLY found the information and link
but this information is posted in the Soon to be release model "catleap q270 led multi", which has vga and hdmi input
but it is in korean, so pls use google translate

I do not think you have any choice regarding the number of inputs, from ebay offers mentioned in this thread.

 

Shimian QH270 Lite (~ IPSBS) and IPSB (both by dream-seller) and Catleap Q270 (by dcsamsungmall) all have only one input (DL DVI), ASAIK.

 

The difference between the Lite (~IPSBS) and the IPSB is the former has speakers but no glass while the latter has no speaker but glass.  But both have the same number of input, namely 1.

The only difference as far as we know is the stand...and the Catleap *may* have a VGA input in addition to the dual-link DVI one. Both the Catleap and Shimian lack AG-coating, so yes, they will be glossy/reflective. thumb.gif Go take a look at the OP's pictures on page 11 if you want a good idea on what they're going to look like.
