Hello,

I know its been a few months and you have two monitors here on your post. Which monitor is better? The Yamakasi or the Achieva?

Would you recommend to get them still? I'm a little worried about the glossy screen though.

Top rated on ebay vs reputable selling and dealing with these monitors is different.

I have never heard of that name before. Since your here you must have read the thread before. Best to go with a seller that plenty of people have had good dealings with.

Brand: QH270-Lite (ordered), QH270-IPSB (shipped) *see below
Price: $295.50 shipped
Seller: ta_planet

Ordered on Wednesday, 8/8 in the evening. A few hours later, ta_planet emailed me saying he was out of the QH270-Lite monitors but would ship me the QH270-IPSB (identical to the Lite but w/ speakers) right away for no additional cost if I didn't want to wait until the following week for a Lite shipment. I agreed and it was shipped by 8/9. The box arrived on Monday, 8/13 which was two days earlier than Fedex estimated. Pretty nice.

Inside the box was the monitor, stand, power supply + power cable + power adapter, and DVI-Dual link cable. Also, a little note from ta_planet saying thanks and that the monitor wasn't dead, lol.

Plugged everything in, turned on my PC, and didn't get a picture. Was kind of worried... until I pulled out my other two monitors and just left the Shimian in. Turned on, looked beautiful. Plugged my other 2 monitors in and now have all 3 running. Tried to find any dead pixels, but couldn't find any. There is some backlight along the top border, with a nickle sized area of bleed near the top-right corner. Noticeable with a full black screen, but can't tell when gaming/browsing the web/etc. Haven't done any color calibration but I don't do any photoshop work so it's not that important to me. The stand feels secure, no wobbling at all. Haven't used the speakers and don't plan to.

Overall, very happy with the purchase. Glad to get rid of nvidia surround and switch to a single, high res monitor.

you got rid of surround? Having 3 of these is a blast

I had 3 22" TN LCDs in surround. Now I have 1 22" TN and the Shimian.

Honestly, I was sick of all the incompatible games with surround. Or the games that were kind of compatible, but you needed a user made patch that would break every time an official patch would come out. Or the games that would keep their UI on the far left and the far right, resulting in neck pain from twisting my neck every 2 seconds.

One huge, high res screen is so much better in my opinion. I wanted to love surround (had the setup for over a year) but I also just want to play my games and not worry about compatibility and finding unofficial patche.

I never had a problem turning my head biggrin.gif but then again I only play games that support it good like BF3 and even GW2 supports it good to

You should check for damage on the box. Contact UPS/DHL/FEDEX since it's likely shipment damage. They might contact the seller for you and they will arrange it for you. Mileage may depend on the shipping company.

Just curious if anyone can confirm for sure that none of the monitors currently being sold by the various reputable sellers on eBay are no longer overclockable? I know there was a thread where someone had asked and one person has stated that it was no longer possible. Hoping this is not completely true.

Thanks in advance for any information pertaining to this.
post #4390 of 4784
Well, my power brick blew. Hoping it didn't take the monitor with it. Had to spend $35 to get a new one shipped. I was using the original. And it happened right as soon as I hooked up my rig with it's replacement CPU. =/
