Skyrim didn't like my Shimian either, and I got dual 6850s.



Well, I see this thread didn't die down. I'll add crossover info, an achieva club spreadsheet, and whatever else I missed a few hundred posts back to the main post soon. 3G sucks at heartsfield though, this page would barely load with tapatalk.

Hello, I live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I have ordered the Shimian, and Canada Post's tracking system tells me that the monitor should be here early next week.

This monitor will come at a good time, because I have graduated college close to two years ago, and have been practically completely unemployed since. I was also just offered a job, and then called at the last minute to be told that it had been given to someone else, so I'm feeling especially crushed as of now. I don't have a lot of money to leave my apartment and spend most of the day inside, a bit struggling to make the time more pleasant. So, when a family member gave me some money to spend as a distraction and I saw this thread at random, I knew what I was going to get. Much thanks to the people who exposed this fabulous deal. I can't wait to gawk at the glory of 27 inches, super high resolution S-IPS goodness! redface.gif

About ghosting, I guess the possibility of trolling is still there, but I wouldn't entirely discount these people's accounts yet. I have one of the rare laptops with an IPS screen, a very recent one, and it has screen ghosting as well. I had to send it back to the company to get a new one. It wasn't a deal breaker though I'll admit. Anyway I'll sure post if I experience any dead/stuck pixels, ghosting or other such weirdness.

As for people telling that some modern games look ugly or badly scaled on it, well I intend to play old early 2000 games on it like Anachronox, Sacrifice, Thief, Kingpin and the like. I think you guys don't know how truly lucky you have it. tongue.gif

My brother lent me his PS3 and he has an HDMI to DVI adapter to go with it, so I'll be able to test out whether or not the Shimian displays something. It doesn't seem clear whether or not it has scaling abilities in and of itself. I don't care much, but there are some who do, so I'll settle the question.

Make that 3.

I just got my Catleap this morning and left my browser on ebay for 45 mins. Then when i came back and went to a site with a dark background i could still see the ebay listings. This is not really a big issue for me, i just wanted ppl to know.

So far im still happy with this purchase. No dead/ stuck pixels, minimal backlight bleed.

Yeah this thread is pretty incredible. Been following it for a bit now. Have some friends who picked up the Catleap and love them. I rolled the dice on the Catleap myself last night in the States. Today it passed through Alaska. Wow!
post #2508 of 4784
So pretty much at this point all hope lies in seeing if the panel PCB that is OCable can be sourced (or Reverse Engineered, and then mass produced by someone) right?

Or getting lucky somehow and attaining a Catleap with the 2B panel.

I might be in South Korea next week. Does anyone know of a brick and mortar place I can pick up 2 of these in Incheon or Seoul?
