Does dreamseller's Achieve QH270-Lite come with dual-link DVI or do you have to buy the cord seperately?

It's turned on, in all its 2560 x 1440 glory!
There does seem to be a VERY SLIGHT yellow-ish tint in the lower right corner, but it could just be my viewing angle (as I'm paranoid and looking for something wrong). I have very minimal back light bleeding (nothing more than a normal IPS has). I don't see any problems with dust under the glass, so with that said the tempered glass looks slick. The buttons are...um, yeah mediocre. There's only three working buttons, and the rest don't do anything. You have the two that control the brightness, and a power on button. Everything else is just there for one of the higher models (like the speaker holes, etc). The stand is garbage as there's no height adjustment, and the tilt seems wobbly.
Overall, for the price, I HIGHLY recommend it. The picture quality is as good as the Apple and Dell monitors I've played around with, and while it does lack some basic features, it's the panel that you're paying for, and that alone is worth the price in gold.

can you link where you got that background image?

Got mine in today. Ordered on the 25th and got it in today. Was a little slower than normal because Dream-Seller said he checks monitors now. Thank god cause I have no dead pixels and the monitor looks amazing. Now to get a Vesa Mount.

Yes, mine came with a Dual Link DVI cord, which was pretty convenient since I only had a Single Link DVI on hand that I was using with my 22" Acer that this replaced. Only thing it doesn't come with is a US power cord, but I just used one I had sitting around to plug into the power brick until my Step Up/Step Down Transformer came in a few days later (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000MW83OG/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i01).

Hi,

No pin is missing ! dvi-d dual link cable have one pin shorter than others smile.gif


But be careful about your choice of dvi cable, a lot of them have dvi-d connector but the connexionsinside are not dual link!!

Have got the same problem about my shimian "monitor detected but no display"

The dvi cable must be good quality, the better is to have writing on the box or approuve by the sellers for the dual link mode compatibility to 2560 X 1600.

I have a strange effect on my ShiMian Lite model (pixel perfect).

Got it last week and was praising the quality, but noticed a stuck green dot yesterday. The very odd part is that it's less than a pixel. I found it on a black screen. It was extremely faint, barely noticeable. Putting up an all red screen and using a magnifier, I noticed the green dot as being about 30% the area of the lit adjacent red sub-pixel. It also had an irregular shape unlike the lit red which has a vertical, sharply defined, rectangular shape.
Anyone has a clue as to what is happening?

All other aspects of the monitor are excellent.

try rubbing it out with a soft cloth and then tap on it, see if that will fix it
