Uh, no. Reviews show that the 3View is marginally better than the other 3 brands. The rest all got exactly the same score. They all use the same panel, and actually, the Catleap cas a lower defect rate based on the polls here at OCN.

I just pressed the buy-button on the Achieva lite version from DCsamsungMall... I have a PayPal account with a approved bank account, but the only option to pay was still credit card! Since I dont have one, I couldnt go further...

Then I found the same monitor from Red-Cap and even 30 dollar cheaper (total $329,95)... I tried it again and now I had the option of paying by bank transfer, trough paypal. Unfortunately this bank transfer is 'delayed' until 4-6 working days, so I will probably not have the monitor soon. Also PayPal screwed me 9 euro with their version of the Dollar to Euro conversion smile.gif

Anyway, still a magnificient deal if the monitor works and has no damage. Thanks guys for all your replies until now. I will keep you updated once I receive the monitor!

Wish me luck!

The score is obviously not an accurate representation of any sort. If you READ the reviews [crazy thought, I know] it is clear the Catleap scored lower overall. Why it ended up with a better score? Who knows. Different reviewer, most likely.

I don't think there's a difference between them worth squabbling about. How about you just have some tea and move on.

Playerwares reviews show us what some panels might be like.

I have a colourimeter and my crossover's maxium contrast is 830:1 vs their 1200:1, after calibration it falls to 700:1. The colour temperature on mine was 8600k compared to Playerwares which was close to 6500k. The gamma was close to the 2.22 standard on mine while Playerwares averaged 1.9.

Expect these types of variations since they are normal for LG IPS panels (especially amongst the 23" models) when buying and pick whichever one you can afford or like the looks off.

Hey guys I'm just curious if the q270 i received recently is DOA. My monitor doesn't necessarily turn on. I press the power button, it makes a flash (white screen) and then it goes black again. THe indicator on the bottom right is constantly red except for the first few seconds when i turn the monitor on.
First of all, the power adapter i used to exchange is the one from my old PC so is that a reason why my monitor isnt working? I didn't buy any adapter and i basically tried sticking in any adapter that would fit into my outlet and the power block, which was from my old dell power plug
Also I'm using windows 8 and my gpu is the 7850. Do these have any correlation to my monitor not working? On the list my gpu isn't compatible.

Also I bought it from ebay and I'm new to the pc world and ebay so how do you necessarily return the item if it's broken? it says full return within 14 days and that i would be able to get my money back. Do i just email them first and ask for a refund? Please help me and thx so much. I'm freaking out what is going on.

Off the top of my head, a few people have ordered from Red-Cap. I don't think there were any complaints.

Alright just impulse bought the $329.95 Shimian from Red-Cap. Everything I buy from impulse usually results in horrible results so I need to prepare myself for dead pixels, customs fees, or the most likely result DOA.

Exact same thing happened to me, you need to shutdown the computer, plug in the DVI then power on the computer.
