What the hell...I bit on the Achieva QH270 Lite. I didnt want to worry about the tempered glass. Really hope this arrives in good condition. I ordered from "fastterakorea" and paid $322.90. I'll post back when it arrives.

Screen is flawless smile.gif No dead pixels, even backlight, no flicker... I'm including this picture since I looked and could not find this information anywhere.

Im on the verge of purchasing a new
Monitor.

After reading this amazing thread i
Still cant make my mind up between

Yamakasi catleap, achieva shimian & crossover.

I dont play games on pc but want something that pooks as impressive as the imac screen

However i would like to use the monitor with ps3 or xbox.

I was initially going to buy dell u2711 but after seeing these monitors and the price im pretty much won over.

My main issue is the build quality, some say the stands etc are flimsy. I know the crossover build is supposed to be better but the other models seem to get better reviews

Why

Any advice on what you would do in my situation.

I use my pc for video editing, music production etc and gaming on ps3 and xbox

Thanks

Are you sure you want to buy a 2560x1440 monitor to play console games at 720p?
I'm pretty sure these monitors only come with one dual link DVI port, so you are going to have to get a more expensive model for more connections.

Can these monitors even support lower resolutions? I know my HP zr30w doesn't, and can't go down to 720p/1080p from consoles. You can lower the desktop res on the PC, since the video card scales it.

So 1080p is going to look like crap on these screens?

HP ZR30W also supports 1280*800 natively, since it is exactly the half of 2560*1600 (its original native res).

Oh that's right... so these would support 720p then (2560x1440\2 = 1280x720), which consoles do output. Should look decent too, since it's an even half res.

Awesome screen the fact that it is tilted down is kinda annoying I ordered this to fix it. Also had to put something under the front to get it to calibrate the spyder was hanging not touching the monitor.

Actually i was concerned about the inability to have vertical movement on the monitors... so where do i find one of these? the ones i've been able to find are mostly for smaller monitors...
