Not any more, you'd just plug in two connectors and it could treat it like eyefinity smile.gif. The monitor would have to support that though.

And the new AMD 7000 series supports up to 4k resolution smile.gif

There will always be something better coming along. Price and want were my determining ratio. Doubtful any new monitor will be less expensive than these IPS with at least this definition. Enjoy now. R-evaluate when when dead or faded.

Hello everyone,

I created an account here to add some more information about the shimian qh270-lite. I ordered mine for $330 from ta_planet yesterday. The seller already shipped the monitor and it is supposed to be here this wednesday by fed ex. I really hope it is not a flawed panel. Can I ask you a question about custom fees? Will I have to pay customs or is this rare? If I do have to pay, what is the process like? Do I pay cash at the delivery person or?


Thank you and I will be posting updates in order to help those out who are thinking about buying one too!!!


-Wish me luck

I read most of the thread, but couldn't find what's the difference between the different brands of monitors. I was thinking of getting one, but i don't know which brand and model to get. Are the monitors essentially the same except the cosmetics that each company decided to use? If anyone could enlighten me or link to a post about it, I'd appreciate it.

CrossOver 27Q Led (or led-P) :If you need a good stand or/and a good pivot. small bezel, build quality is awsome and the design is great(little more expensive)

Yamakasi CatLeap: If you need a cheap one with bad stand because you will change the stand for a monitor arm, CatLeap, small bezel too

Achiva Shimian: Stand seems fine but the bezel is white. I like the build quality of the Shimian too.


I choosed the Crossover mostly because of the adjustable Stand and less user were getting bad pixel panel ( not suppose to be true, luck of draw). I also choose the CrossOver because of the small bezel, I am running three in eyefinity so the bezel was a big criteria.

I decided to go for the Achieva since I don't need a pivot since it'll just be set in one place and stay there, and the Crossover is ~$50 more. Just need to figure out if i want the Lite or Tempered Glass version.

Thanks for the short and simple summaries

I got the Tempered glass shimian and I actually removed the bezel so I can see straight at the panel, no glass in between. Having glass might seem cool but trust me, its more of a hassle than a pro. Do yourself a favor and get the non tempered glass version.

Can you elaborate on your running without the bezel? Do you have the plastic front and back off? I did see your vid of removing the tempered glass but am definitely interested in running a surround bezeless set up. Thanks!

How is the tempered glass an issue? It has to be better than non-glass. I mean you get protection from the glass and it's easier to clean too. The only downside with the glass version is it's a bit more expensive and sometimes you get dust stuck inside. But I just don't see how the tempered glass version is worst than the regular one?
