An update to my previous rMBP problem.

I swapped out the Monoprice mDP - Dual Link DVI for the Kanex one; everything works now. Display does not show any dead pixels. Trying to temper my feelings, but feeling excited at this early point.

so it seems red-cap and dream-seller are the cheapest atm for ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-Lite "PERFECT PIXELS" I know people like ta_planet (they want 400$) and green_sum (though theres been some hate lately) whats the opinion on these two?

Plan on buying at least 2, anyone have dealings with "best offer" on multiple monitor purchases?

thanks as always

I've read a review saying this monitor had something like 19ms input lag. What sort of experience have you guys had? (BF3, etc). Thanks

I bought from dream-seller. He answered two emails during the transaction. The monitor box was double wrapped in bubble wrap. I couldn't ask for much more, really.

I am NOT a hardcore fps player. And, I don't have a second, low-lag monitor to compare it to. But, I maybe, might notice a slight lag if I stare reallllly hard at the cursor and wiggle my mouse back and forth. It could be my imagination. That said, I don't have a problem playing fps.

Only get the on with the DVI connection on it and response times will be as good as they can be on IPS. I have no complaints about response times on mine. It is slower than my old TFT, but man is it pretty.

Hi Guys, I seem to be having a issue with my monitor. I got it about 5 days ago.

When the monitor gets signal either from a computer turning on or waking up from sleep, The screen would flicker 2 or 3 times and then it would be normal. I notice when the monitor does flicker, the green led on the power brick would flicker the same as the monitor.I believe this might be a power supply related issue.

Also I do see the image of my login screen (just without the backlight) so I know its not a signal from the laptop / computer and more of a PSU related thing.

Here is a youtube video I took this morning of the exact issue.

Id also like to mention that i did purchase the one from ta_planet that had the better power supply with upgraded chipset & larger noise filter.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks!
