I'm with ya... I actually have a bezel design I was going to suggest, but I want to do some patent research first. Then, once my dreams of coming up with a cool idea of my own are dashed by the reality that all my cool "unique" thoughts are not as cool or unique as I think, I'll mention it here for all the DIY'ers... 

 

But yes, bring on the 120hz IPS (without frame drops) panels please...

Has anyone tried to remove the bezel on one of these ?? I am considering doing it myself, because i think the frame on my Qnix looks so ugly.

If anyone has seen someone who even disassembled it, I would really like to see it! smile.gif

Ebay. Search the name of the monitors.
Some of the popular sellers are redcap and TA planet.

Good luck.

I hooked it up, initially with out the power, and it automatically gave me a bsod error 0x124 which is a hardware error caused by busted hardware, incompatible hardware/drivers, "borked" drivers (not all folks agree with this one). I do not have a DVI port on my laptop but an hdmi so I used a duallink-dvi to hdmi cable to hook it up. I plugged this into another laptop of lower calibre (I believe) and it did not error what so ever. That laptop could not handle 1440p but did recognize the monitor. I'm not sure if it installed drivers automatically or not. I will be testing it on a higher-calibre desktop later on when i have time ( probably tomorrow) My video card is a 540m nvidia (not dedicated) and a dedicated intel graphics 3k. This may not be able to handle 1440p ( which will be unfortunate) but it shouldnt error like so.
I just wanted to see if anyone else got this error and going through 400 pages is too much a task when you dont much time. If anyone could help or has any information to offer, that would be great. Thanks!
again same issue frown.gif

Ordered ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-Lite for $286 from Red-cap.

Came within 5 days, and had no dead pixels at all. Monitors was exactly as described and completely brand new.

In the past 12 months he has had 18 bad reviews out of hundreds. Of those 18, only a handful were to do with the monitors. Of those handful, all but two were because the person didn't use the correct DVI cable.

I see a lot of people are having problems with Dream-seller. I suggest giving red-cap a shot. Same monitors, for a cheaper price.

I would also advice against getting any type of glass on your monitor. It may make the monitor "look sexier". However it increases the chances you will have a messed up display due to dust. It also increases the price. The glass is also not as good as the glass Apple uses, and can cause future issues down the road with no warranty or repair service around.

I was also going to get a tempered glass version, but decided against it for those reasons.

^ exact listing.
