Hello,

I've just started looking into this boon of cheap nice monitors. It would appear though, that all the matte ones, are at terribly high prices right now (ie. about 50% more than their fancy looking counterparts).

As I personally greatly dislike to see my reflection in a screen, I'd much rather have mine matte, and am quite surprised by the difference in prices. So, am I possibly missing something? Or if I want to get such a screen for around 200£, shall I just surrender and get a reflective one?

Anybody get a high pitch noise from there Shimian?

I get a high pitch like squeal, when opening certain folders or web pages, seems to be when there's more white color on the screen.

Any fix for this?

Yeah I think I'm gonna hold off and buy a pixel perfect shimian, cost more, but less chances of dead pixels. Or get one from red_cap :/.

No dead pixels? Also is the LED-P overclockable?

Pixel Perfect.
The 2730 model is but it lacks display ports & I read that the overclocking doesn't matter because you'll always get 60hz performance.

Actually perfect pixel relates to bright pixels and not dead pixels.

All the posters here at overclock.net have reported no dead pixels with the perfect pixel guarantee.

Go read the threads from the beginning you'll find that they are bright pixel guarantees and not dead pixel. That being said my PCBank is a pixel perfect and it has 3 dead pixels and there's wasn't much Green-Sum would do cause pixel perfect applied to stuck pixels and not dead ones.

Regarding to dead pixel policy,
Dark dot and stuck pixel does not handled as dead pixel. Bright dot only.
Dark dot : The pixel shows dark and cannot be found on Black background.
If the dot show other colors, bright dot.
Therefore even if we send the monitor to manufacturer, there is possibility it is not handled as dead pixels.
Bigclothcraft isn't much different either..

I'd assume pixel perfect isn't an industry standard, so it's really up to the seller what that means.
