Hello,

First of all thanks to this community for all the info that it has provided for any potential buyers.

I ordered the shimian q-lite regular version $323.00 from ta planet last friday and it got here today 4/24/2012.

The box came without bubble wrap but it didn't look damaged or creased around the edges. Inside of the box there was a note from the seller saying thank you and that the monitor had been tested and that there were no dead pixels.

NOTE: I did NOT order the perfect pixel version.


I took the monitor out and inspected for cracks or any miss handling by fedex. It looked fine.

The stand is a little sketchy and the monitor wobbles. But I really do not care I will be buying a stand soon.

I am in the process of finishing my new rig and all that is missing is my GTX 680. I have the asrock z68 gen 4 motherboard and I tried to plug the monitor directly into the DVI-D input of the motherboard.

The monitor would have a red light and it would turn on with a white screen and turn off immediately. Luckily my brother's computer was next door and he has a gtx 570. I plugged the monitor into the dvi slot. Turned the PC on, then the monitor and


BAMMM. flawless picture. This monitor is simply gorgeous. I didn't have time to inspect for any dead pixels but I didn't really see any. I will look into this later tonight.

Ok well off to class I go!

Pictures later

I wonder if your other dvi port was the older single and not the double. They can look alike. Anyway - glad you fixed it.

Not sure but my motherboard is only capable for displaying a 1900x1200 resolution through DVI. The motherboard does have a DVI-D output just not capable for 1440p.

Maybe someone else can validate this but in my case the monitor only worked when given a 1440p (was done through a GTX 570)

Hey Stab;

I don't have any yellow flashing on my monitor. It may be useful to mention that currently, the center of the monitor is at my eye level.

it probably wont work. check that your motherboard says whether it an do 2560x1600. some motherboards do, some dont. mine doesnt. and when i plug in my 30" the highest resolution it does is about 1280x960.

I wonder why the IPSMDP is so expensive though, I understand it's premium and all, but surely it doesn't cost $400 to add connections?
