Thanks for the info Bruce. I installed the catalyst 12.2 drivers but there is no difference. I'm not too familiar with ATI software, maybe I'm doing something wrong? I'm moving the saturation and hue sliders in the "color" menu of catalyst. The color of the girl and the fruit changes but not the desktop. It seems all I can change there is the gamma, brightness, and contrast. Am I missing something or would a better ATI or NVIDIA card let me do those adjustments?

Oh and BTW my Shimian came just like the picture of yours in bubble pack. I was sure I was going to have to pay a customs charge but I didn't ! smile.gif

This monitor beats the 27 inch BENQ LED VA panel monitor I bought and returned hands down for resolution and off axis color reproduction !

OK so please beware those people that use Intel 2000 or 3000 graphics THEY DON"T WORK with the Shimian !

Hmm, when I had dead pixels on my U2311, what I did was turned my monitor off and using a cloth to cover my nail, pressed against the dead pixel. You have to use a bit of force and ofc, you can't be 100% accurate, but try getting as close to the dead pixel as possible.

This method has worked for 2 dead pixels so I suggest you give that a shot smile.gif

He can't, its got tempered glass over the screen. He'll need to disassemble the whole monitor to access the panel.

Does anyone still have the link to the "zero white dot" seller or did he sell out?

The download link for that doesn't work. In any case, I'll try something when i get around to it... I just played some Diablo 3 Beta... oh the colors are SO nice... biggrin.gif

Actually guys, it's NOT a stuck/dead pixel. It's actually dust underneath the glass

when you view it from different angles the "pixel" moves in relation to my mouse cursor, so it's definately dust. Sorry guys! Otherwise... no dead pixels, but no way to remove it except to clean the glass (where I have the chance of reintroducing more dust). It's not bothersome so all is happy. No dead pixels. You guys think i should change my vote? or is the dust still a vote of disconfidence?

I think OC.net is failing a bit there (cuz I can't see my updates to my previous post) but here's what i wanted to say:

Oh man that tampered glass is nice. Really considering selling my monitors. But I want to connect my laptop and it only has hdmi. Damn are there adapters?

The zero dot policy seems like a moot point to me. They can claim that on every monitor. In the end, you'll never know if it'll have dead pixels until you have it in your hands, and you'll still have to pay return shipping to korea if a dead pixel is found.
Unless the monitor has tons of dead pixels, let's be honest - you're not going to drop $50 on a $400 monitor to ship it back.

Additionally, zero white dot I believe only refers to stuck pixels. Dead pixels (black) I don't believe are included. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Man I would bite on this if it was a little lower. I don't really need a monitor so I can hold out a little longer to get a higher res monitor. Was waiting till these resolutions hit $300-350 so hopefully if demand drops, the ebay seller will drop the price. Still saving up for either an Ivy Bridge build or waiting one more year for Intel's new processor. Oh and if there is a group buy happening, I would like to purchase one of these from them. PM me if someone is doing a group buy. Thanks
