Also would a voltage transformer like this work if the power brick is only rated "230V"?

For those of you in Australia I received my ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-IPSB today 21/03/12. Ordered from dcsamsungmall last Friday. It was picked up by Fedex same day but sat in China for four days for some reason before moving along to Singapore then Melbourne.

The wait was worth the wait. Colour and contrast is spectacular. Haven't done any full tests yet but to my naked eye I can't see any visible dead pixels or dust. The tempered glass on the bottom of the screen was slightly loose but a bit of pressure and it has stuck back in place no problem.

I've added some shots of the unboxing and set up. As others have mentioned the power bricks accepts and standard three pin PC cable.

I see why you went with the Shimian, it matches your keyboard and mouse perfectly smile.gif

Adelaide here and waiting for a catleap from green-sum. Looking at your pics though maybe the Shimian has a bit better styling? That white plastic around the bezel was initially a turnoff for me but your pics make it look nice. Ah well, it's too late now...

That Dell I paid $600 for...now I know why it costs more money.

Is anyone game enough to take the panel apart and try reseating the lightguide/diffusor to correct these sorts of issues?

I have been in contact with one of the Catleap sellers for a few days now, he have spoken with Yamakasi and IF the enquery is big enough for the 120hz(100hz gpu limited) monitor they WILL start production of them again.

So please put your vote HERE
http://www.overclock.net/t/1232084/group-buy-yamakasi-catleap-q270-100hz-guaranteed

He was also interested in making a special edition overclock.net monitor. but I stated that 100hz is the main priority, put you thoughts!

That would be right, Australia post doesn't ship insured to italy because their reliablity is so bad.

Can we get a PixPerAn readability test done on these displays at both 60hz and 100hz? It would be nice to know if the panels response time is good enough to make use of the higher refresh rates.

Some comparisons:

7 - Samsung 2233rz 60hz
8 - Dell 2209wa 60hz
9 - Dell 2209wa 76hz
12 - Samsung 2233rz 120hz
18 - Benq XL2420T 120hz

If you run above 60hz, your final score should be multiplied by hz/60 due to the faster scrolling text.
120hz = 2
100hz = 1.67
90hz = 1.5
etc
