I am sorry if this was asked 100 times already but these threads have gotten so long and I've lost track. Does anyone have a list of what displays do and do not have glass?

I just jumped the gun and ordered an Achieva Shimian QH270-IPSBS from TA_Planet, wish me luck, I fear i'm going to need it. Might be the first and last purchase I make online (depending on what happens).

@Xylene

The sellers usually state in the post whether the item comes with tempered glass or not.

I just got my Shimian and have unpacked it. I got it from Red cap and it came three days after ordering(faster then getting an item from the other side of the states). I got a tempered glass version and there is ZERO dust behind the panel. I do have one worry though. I went through all ~400 pages of this thread and all 14 of the official thread and havent seen anyone mention this so I hope someone can chime in.

When I turn my monitor upside down, to the side, etc, I can hear what sounds like one tiny screw that falls down depending on what angle I hold the monitor.

Should I be worried? Do I need to take this thing apart and take out whatever is in there before I turn this on? I don't want to risk breaking this brand new monitor...

If you do need to take it apart, I made a guide for the tempered glass monitor and how to take it apart smile.gif

If you're the type of person who does not move their monitor around much or at least doen't flip it upsidedown then I would just leave it alone.

Hey!! I´m going to plug three Achieva on a single GTX680 (If I can play iRacing and Rfactor at 7680x1440 with a single gpu much better for my wallet). I´m confused, which of these active DP to DVI adapters should I buy?

DP to Dual-Link DVI 24+1 or DP to Dual-Link DVI 24+5? Both cost 55€ (70$).

THANKS!!

I think the +5 has the integrated audio thing going on but you should really be sure about it and google it.

You only need to buy one DisplayPort-to-DVI Dula Link Active Adapter. This adapter will work up to 2560x1600 @60Hz or 1920x1080 @120Hz.

Compatible 330MHz DisplayPort™ to Dual Link DVI-D converter for NVIDIA® DisplayPort capable products.

Thanks. I don't ever move the monitor and when its on the desk it makes no noise. Only when I pick it up and tilt it to the side or upside down does it have whatever it is fall down inside there. The screen works fine and I have no problems with it otherwise so I'm just going to leave it alone.

I just didn't want to be one of those cases where maybe a screw shorts out something on a PCB completely frying a monitor. That's all I was afraid of.
