Just a heads up.

I ordered from ta_planet as well. Yes he is really good in terms of shipping and my monitor came in in a really good condition. But it seems that a lot of people, including myself, receive the perfect pixel version regardless of what you order. I bought the regular version for $320 and it came with a note that said "perfect pixel version, tested no dead pixels".

HEy!

Whats the difference between the Shimian, Catleap and Crossover?
And is there any seller who's got a good "pixel- and DOA-policy?" In case the monitor gets broken in shipping? smile.gif

Guys please help me.

I have my Shimian now for like a month and something just happened that never happened until now.

I booted the computer, turned the monitor on (I do it more often in this order), and the monitor was outputting really strange horizontal lines, moving really fast across the screen. So bad that I couldnt see anything else, except the moving lines.
I checked the cables and the power brick and nothing changed.

I turned the monitor off and on again, and everything works fine again!

However, I lost my 'trust' a bit. I never saw anything like this before, so I am scared something is wrong.

What could have caused this?

If it was fixed by restarting the monitor I wouldn't be that concerned however in the long run worst case scenario, the IPS panel itself is screwed.

Could you explain this a bit more? What are 'signs' of a IPS panel going bad?

It seemed to me that the signal was distorted, but I dont know what caused it. Maybe its the DVI-D cable that came with the monitor, as I heard a lot of complaints about it. Maybe it was just the exact wrong moment to turn the monitor on as my computer sends a 'bad' signal? A low/high peak in the power supply?

I dont know... I restarted the computer once more and everything is back to normal. I really hope it has nothing to do with the panel itself... Thats really the worst case scenario.

So..... recommendation is to go for the non tempered glass? My office is in a room that gets a lot of morning sun; but it's at an angle (not at my back). I basically have the monitor to my left and look ou tthe window to my right. I do get pretty bad glare in the morning.

My uses: video / photo editing (60%), gaming (20%), browsing the internet / work related stuff (20%)

Sorry if this has been answered before, I've read this and the Cat Leap thread, but do all models with this display (Shimian, Cat Leap, and Crossover) have a probability of being an overclockable version, or is it just the Cat Leap?

Just the Catleap from what I've seen. It has to be specifically the 2B model and they are very rare to find from the normal sellers. You can Google for another place though.
