I have started looking at alternative stand options, and I apologize if I have overlooked a link, but many links have been to clamping-style VESA mounts or else wall mounts. I am looking for something that will stand on a desk, similarly to this one, but smaller:
http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082808&p_id=5970&seq=1&format=2

This stand is nice but has a large footprint. Someone here has a photo of a beautifully adopted DELL stand, but unfortunately I do not have any loose stands laying around for this purpose. Any suggestions on which stands I can go for under $40? The one I linked above was all I could find on Monoprice for that purpose.

Also, I remember reading something about having to drill extra holes in some VESA mounts to adjust them for Achieva ShiMian holes - would that be the case for most? Achieva is the monitor I am awaiting.

88 hours after purchase I received a tracking number from dream-seller. Estimated delivery is the 21st at the latest.

I placed an order for a Perfect Pixel model from Red-Cap for $315 late last night. I got tracking information about 6 hours later. The tracking number isnt doing anything yet, but ebay shows a DHL number. Est. delivery is the 17th-20th.

When did tracking information go live for some of you guys?

I ordered a Shimian QH270 with tempered glass from ta_planet on Sunday and I just opened the package (Tuesday). Shipping was as fast as Amazon prime and I have yet to notice any dead pixels, although there is a small piece of dust in the bottom right corner. I am very impressed with this panel and I plan on ordering another.

I read the FAQs and also that we are not allowed to post Ebay links.

One of these monitors for around 450-490 USD shows Display Port as well. Which model is that?

Thanks to this amazing thread, I'm going to order at least one Shimian QH270-IPSBS soon thumb.gif.

I was looking at their compatibility chart and see that my graphics card is not listed. I was curious if someone could help me determine if the ATI Radeon™ HD 4200 Series will support this monitor?

I'm pretty sure the card came with the motherboard as I just have a pretty stock HP computer from Best Buy (n00b i know). It does have the requisite DVI Dual Link port in the back and according to my googling it should support up to 2560x1600.

I'm thinking it will work fine but would love to get a second opinion. Anyone?

Seems there's a new monitor - the Achieva Shimian QH270-IPSI. Claims to have "inside tempered glass". I'm guessing that means it's no longer over the bezel? I'm glad it solves the dust problems but I actually wanted to get the IPSB as it would be easy to clean as all I would need to do is just wipe the whole thing as the glass is over the bezel too.

Going to ask the seller and ask if the glass is now under the bezel or what as it's really annoying to have the dust trapped in between the screen edge and bezel.

downside, if there is dust under the glass, it'll be even more fun to get at it.

I wouldn't bet on that version being dust-free, as even monitors without tempered glass manage to get some dust particles behind the actual LCD screen, according to some reports.

Tracking number was already live when I got mine. 4 days after ordering. Total time from ordering to receiving should be 9-11 days from dream-seller. ta_planet seems to be the faster shipper. but was $20 more expensive at the time I ordered.
