Can anybody who has the Shimian monitor and calibrated it give me their settings?
post #815 of 4784
Anyone send email to dream-seller? I sent him 2 emails, 2 days and 5 days ago, and he has not replied yet. I only got the "out of office" message the 2nd time I sent the email.


dream-seller vs other sellers.
dream-seller has 14 days to return monitor; the other sellers have 7 days to return.
Does this make a difference?

I am not clear on the return policy.
dream-seller has a "zero bright dot" policy
eg., if the monitor has 1 dead pixel, who pays for the return shipping?

He/she has been out of office since at least March 1st, since it was a Korean holiday and now it is a weekend. The out of office message says that they will get back to you on the Monday, March 5th, so have patience.

As for the return policy, I would not put any faith in it as you will most likely have to pay return shipping which will be in the $100 range. As was said much earlier in this thread anyone that buys these is taking a huge risk due to the of the lack of warranty and large cost associated in returning it, hence the poll so everyone could get info on the defect rate. You kind of get what you get and have to be happy with it, but with that said the risk seems to be worth it since any comparable monitor is at least double the price.

If it makes anyone feel better you can just buy another if it breaks for less than the HP, Apple, or Dell 27" and call that your warranty... That's how I consider it.

Btw, I made an offer to the new catleap seller themoment2012 of 375, and he countered with 385, cheap but dreamseller is tried and true...

Curious on this as well, I'm damn tempted to bite and sell my 3007WFP-HC... 80-90hz or higher on a 2560x1440 IPS would be amazing!

Finally got mine today, (Q270). I never realized how crappy my TN panel looked until I placed it side by side. SOOO glad I bought this. No stuck/deadpixels. Ordered from dream-seller and the monitor package was bubbled wrapped.

Yup, I've been trying to tell people the difference for years on different forums, but always got flamed to cinders and even modded out/deleted posts for saying it frown.gif. IPS is "the win", by far, over a TN panel. It's no contest.

I've tried searching the thread but I don't have time right now to read through 91 pages of posts... are the Catleaps consistently reaching 80hz or higher at 2560x1440, from the sound of it? What about the Achieva/Shimian? Should they both technically reach it other than the EDID since they're the same panel? Is there any disadvantage to the Catleap other than the higher stock stand (which I don't care about)? I saw a summary claiming the Catleaps have a high defect rate or somesuch but the poll doesn't reflect that....
