I orderered two monitors on saturday from dreamseller. I've not received any info if it has been sent yet? Does it take many days before they send?
post #3813 of 4784
I just received my Achieva Shimian. Everything looks great....for about 10 minutes. Then the monitor shuts completely off. I've tried using a cord from both my previous monitor and printer and get the same result. Think it's the power brick failing? It does get pretty warm though it doesn't seem much different than other power bricks I've used. Anyone have any idea where to get a different power brick with the 4 pin connector? The power brick says it's rated for 110 - 240v so I assume it should be fine in a standard American wall outlet.

I suppose another question would be if anyone's in the Charleston, SC area that could let me borrow their power adapter to verify that's what's causing my problem before I send the monitor back to dream-seller.

I ordered my Achieva Shimian from Bigclothcraft on Sunday around 6pm and I just got it today around 9am. I am amazed how fast it got here. So far there seems to be no light bleeding and only 2 dead pixels from what I can see (you really have to look for it to be able to notice it).

I am sooo close to purchasing a Shimian Lite but i am not really sure because I do not want a monitor that breaks within a few months. Since it is a "koreamonitor" i am think that it's made buy a 5-year old but then i remember that it's made by LG for companies such as Apple so the risk of it breaking down should not be any higher for these monitors than the risk of an Apple Cinema Display or the Dell u2711 breaking? Right?

You have to convince me to buy one! biggrin.gif

"BudgetKorean" company aka LG. It really seems like LG uses lower quality panels then the ones they give to dell and etc.

The yellow light i have read about comes from the bottom left or right corners, mine has it coming from the lower left and lower middle. Sometiems you see it, sometimes you dont, it all depends on the screen, a dark screen will show it the most, where lighter screens you may not see it at all.

When im surfing internet, viewing photos i dont see it at all, but when i watch movies, blu rays, dvds, then i see it alot and it bugs me to death. Im kinda stuck, its such a hasstle to send this thing back to Korea, the seller wants video or photos, its impossiable to get a good photo of it, i need to try to video it, then he will determine if its refundable. I love the monitor, but the yellow light is killing it for me. I knew going in to this it was a gamble, hopefully the seller will give me a new one.

I have read others having this same problem, im sure its not just Shimians, its always a gamble buying a A- product from another countrie, hopefully i wont be sorry i did.

In order to fix the buzzing sound on a tempered glass monitor, one has to remove the glass, correct?

If so, what model is it easiest to remove and replace the glass on? I watched the YouTube video about removing glass on the Shimian. Is it only held in place by adhesive? In that case I'd be worried that the adhesive wouldn't be as strong after replacing it.

EDIT: found my answer at http://www.overclock.net/t/1215866/reviewed-400-2560x1440-ips-no-ag-90hz-achieva-shimian-qh270-and-catleap-q270/3600#post_17113386 - I will just buy the Catleap as it seems easier to remove the glass, should I ever need to.
