Well - I am testing with the cable that came with the Shimian - and also with this cable:

Which says dual link on the cable so I think I am okay cable wise. The cable from ta_planet does not say dual link on it but it has all the pins of a dual-link cable on the connectors.

Well mine has not worked yet - but when I have it connected to the computer on the 8800GTS or GTX550Ti, I get a solid blue light and the backlight comes on. Windows 7 recognizes it as a monitor and says it has extended my desktop to it. I can move windows off the screen onto it, but can't see them on the monitor. The light will flash blue when I either set the resolution for the Shimian to some weird setting or when I plug it into my 6800GS card (which I do not think is compatible - may not be dual-link).

The Achieva IPSB (w/Glass) is only $318 from greensum now! I wonder how cheap these will get..

If it goes down to under $300 I'll be buying a second card and use it with the second monitor since my HD 6950 only has 1 dual-dvi.

I'm still unsure as to which of the Korean monitors I should be going for. I know they all have the same panels, so any reason to go for one over the other?

Argh, all these really good reviews are making me seriously consider getting one...

Going from this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824112011

I imagine it would be quite the upgrade.

Not so much, other than cost/connections/stand quality.
Though if you care about 120Hz versions, you might want to use google to check those out.

It certainly was. I just upgraded from an LG Flatron M237WD, and boy oh boy I'm loving it. Colors, resolution, size! I havn't turned my LG on since unless I'm showing friends/family what a difference the IPS/resolution makes.

Does anyone else have an issue when they wakeup their computer they get vertical multi-colored lines and have to reboot to make it go away?

I have an MSI GTX 580 3GB and the Shimian Lite using the supplied DVI cable and power brick.

Did you try only to switch off and on the display without rebooting your computer?
