Interesting, the QH270-IPSTDP is a monitor/hdtv. That means you can watch television at 2560 x 1440 resolution? Possible?

No, Because no channel outputs beyond 1080i/p

Been Lurking the thread I am thinking of selling my display to buy one of these but it would be an impulse purchase.... imo.
Small wonder.

Has anyone who received their monitor noticed IPS glow on blacks? Is it any worse or better than on Dell IPS monitors, like this?

Both work just fine, but the monitor didn't like it when I set it to 30hz. If you're using dual link DVI with a PC, it doesn't matter: your GPU can do all the scaling for you. It probably does a better job at it anyway. But as for 1080p for other sources, it looks fine.

Just eyeballing it, somewhere between 4-6 feet.

Yup, there's some glow. When it comes to black levels at angles, no LCD can compare to a CRT or a plasma, but it's not terrible by any means.


Also, be sure to post pics. I wanna put some photos of the Catleap in the first post.

Alright, I managed to catch the Fedex guy just as he was leaving my street so I got my monitor today.

Monitor - Achieva Shimian IPSB (Tempered Glass)

INFO:

Seller - dcsamsungmall
Shipping used - Fedex International Economy
DUTY - $21 (Delivered to Canada)

NO BUBBLEWRAP SURROUNDING BOX.

The monitor arrived with cracks on both the left and right on the top corners of the housing. The panel itself is fine. There is also remnants of what appears to be styrofoam stuck between the glass and housing.

Despite this, the monitor has arrived FUNCTIONAL. I am typing from it as we speak. I'll have pictures posted in a few.

There IS dust behind the panel, and one particular section is very aggravating.

Pictures below. I apologise for them being AWFUL, as they were taken with a Nexus One, but it'll give you the general idea.

Ouch.
post #499 of 4784
Wow you had to pay duties, cracked housing and even dust behind the tempered glass.. try and file an ebay claim for the damaged monitor even if it works a cracked housing shouldn't be acceptable. Glad I ordered mine from dreamseller, should be here any day now wrapped in bubble wrap marked as a gift.

Yeah, you aren't going to get NO light bleed unless you get a CRT or a OLED panel...
