With 1 stuck pixel that can't be seen from sitting distance visible only on black background and some backlight bleeding, should I vote for dead pixel / flawed panel or option without those flaws?

All of them have a VESA mount. But the stand is difficult to take off of some of them. In another thread bezel size was talked about, but I can't find it at the moment. I think the Crossover had the thinnest? I don't remember for sure.

I am pretty new to this forum which I accidentally stumbled upon. I ordered a ShiMian Lite from dream-seller, I think I got a dud .There are four vertical lines of 6-7 dead pixels (green on black background) , which looks pretty bad , I have some pictures.

What do you guys think?

I guess I will have to return it which sucks. Does anyone have experience in returning them ?

I bought a Shimian tempered glass model, but recently got a message saying they have a new tempered glass model that guarantees that there are no dust problems. This was his exact message.

"That’s why manufacturers resolve problems with tempered-glass monitors, and recently they have released QH270-IPSI. Let us explain to you about QH270-IPSI.
IPSI monitor is just same with IPSB monitor. The only difference of these 2 monitors is where tempered glass is attached. On the prior model, IPSB, a tempered glass was attached on the outside of a screen, and it cause lots of dust in the screen. However, Achieva manufacturers make up for this dust problem. On a new model, IPSI, tempered glass is inserted inside a monitor, and there is no worry for dust. Because of the position of tempered glass, there is slight design difference at the edge of monitor. "

Has anyone bought this new model? I curious to know how the monitor looks with the glass behind the screen? I don't actually get that. I was going to remove the tempered glass and clean out the dust if I did have that problem. He said I can still change it to the newer model if I wanted to. What do you guys think?

It's possibly the cable. More than likely a dud though.

Odds are he's being straight up and honest with you. I'm sure the manufacturer got an earful about the dust problems and cleaned up their act. Go for the new one.

Two sellers said that IPSI had dust problems, as IPSB. One even has or had it in their IPSI listing. Since there aren't enough reports about IPSI monitors and dust yet, I'd be cautious until widespread confirmation. For instance, my second IPSB has no noticeable dust.

I've bought the IPSB based mostly on your recent review and comments, which I've found very helpful. I ended up receiving the IPSI from Dream Seller last week.
I can tell you with confidence that I found no dead pixels using the pixel tests. I also could not find any dust under the glass.
The display screen is absolutely beautiful. I am very satisfied with it. The only thing I have been concerned about is the 230V power brick, which gets hot after using for a while. So I just ordered a step-up voltage converter just to be safe.
Thanks to you and the OC Community.

Another possibility is a cable inside that has loosened in transit , I'm sure some people have fixed it by taking the back off and re-seating it!

Hope you get it sorted whichever way you go ...
