Well as we all know, the stand for these monitors suck. So i planned on making a custom stand made of black walnut and a universal VESA mount for my Achieva Shimian. If i do indeed make it, i will be producing a build log for the stand.

Sick. Can't wait! thumb.gif

Thanks a lot.

Are you plugging into a naked wall outlet or a surge protector? I had a very similar issue that went away after plugging into the wall. It was an issue with the power conversion. Fancier surge protectors regulate output very strictly, and the a/c adapters that come with these monitors need to pull unregulated power to convert properly. My power brick is running perfectly, hardly even warm, which tells me it can handle the Asia/NA difference just fine. If you haven't plugged it straight into an outlet, it's worth a shot.

Guys I am trying to figure out for some time now which monitor I should get, but I just can't decide smile.gif

The options are

-PCBANK 3VIEW PB2700
-Catleap Q270
-Crossover 27Q
-Achieva QH270

They all use the same panel right?

But I read on this forum that the PCBANK has the best colors, but for me the ugliest / worst design. The Crossover seems to me the most solid build, of metal in stead of plastic and has the best stand.
About the other two I do not know anything that stand out for better or worse.

-Is the input lag on all monitors the same? (zero?!)
-Do all the monitors have an equal chance of having dead / stuck pixels / backlight defects?

Could someone just make it easier for me? The small price differences dont matter, I just want the highest chance of receiving a monitor in the best possible state smile.gif

Bonus question -> Did someone from West - Europe (preferable Netherlands) order a monitor? I would like to know how it went with customs and how long it toke and how much money it cost smile.gif

Thank you guys so much. It's a hard choice smile.gif

I'm massively tempted by the Yamakasi Q270 - to the current owners, is the 6ms response time noticable? I'm a huge FPS fan and it'll ruin the experience for me if they feel sluggish at all.

For those trying to decide on monitor there is currently an ebay seller with Achieva Shimian HQ270-Lite for $335 with free fedex shipping. I was about to buy the Crossover for $400 but decided that Shimian for $335 was better value.

$335 is an amazing price for such a nice monitor. You really cant go wrong with that.
