Can you remove the tempered glass from the catleap, shimian, crossover (and put it back on) easily?
I have seen the tempered glass being removed from the Shimian with a heat gun and a plastic card.
Don't know if it can be put back on though..
Call me crazy. But if I can remove (to clean from dust) and put the tempered glass back on (pretty easy) I might just order one with glass.
I have a 3 year-old @home, so the tempered glass would actually be quite useful.

It is very simple to remove the glass for cleaning on a Catleap. All you need to do is unscrew the front bezel, pop the bezel clips (the toughest part) and the front bezel will come off, along with the tempered glass pane. Just wipe down the tempered glass and the lcd screen, pop the bezel back on, put the screws back in and you're done.

Thnx for the reply.

From the sound of it, the only one with an easy-to-remove-and-put-back-glass is Catleap then?
Or maybe it's just as easy on the crossover (with glass)?

Do anyone have any pictures to share? I've seen pictures on the Shimian tempered but nothing else.

Ordered a QH270-IPSMS from ta_planet this weekend. It shipped out today - very excited! Here's to hoping the included power adapter works and I don't have to buy another.

I also picked up a plate to mount a VESA monitor on my Dell 2407 stand. It appears the built in stand would be a bit too high for my hutch, and this gives me the ability to adjust height and rotate.

I also ordered a QH270-IPSMS from fleabay..... needed that HDMI port =). Not many here have the HDMI version...

I ordered from fastorkorea or something like that.

I'm debating getting the QH270 or just a regular 27" LCD (Benq or Asus).

I don't think my GTX570 will like playing BF3 on 2560x1400 res. Can I set the resolution at 1080p and still enjoy the monitor? blushsmiley.gif

The image scaling can be made by graphic card but image quality of this panels at 1080 is not fine at all.

So whats the general consensus here? I'm really tempted to pull the trigger, but I don't know if I should go for the Achieva QH270 or the Catleap Q270. I'm guessing the Achieva QH270-Lite is the best choice as it doesn't have the glass over the front for dust/dirt to get stuck in?

Why not just wait a week for the 120hz version. People keep monitors for 4-5 years. This is a high end monitor that will take a while to get out dated. In a year the high end GPUs will be mid-tier and you will be able to push it 100+hz.

Wait, there is a 120hz version of these monitors coming out in a week? Are they going to be the same price? Sorry if this has been explained, I'm only about 100 posts deep into the thread at the moment.

I'm thinking of getting the Shimian QH270-IPSBS White, is it a good pick or is one of the other brands better nowadays ?

This of course if the 120hz monitors don't come out in a week, only buying next week anyway.

Cheers
