Um the fact they don't have any catleaps in stock is probably why they cant offer perfect pixel

Hi thanks for the responses previously ive now read a large amount of the thread and now know alot more about these monitors. And i've narrowed it down to two monitors and just wanted to check that they were okay before purchase.
Im looking for the cheapest monitor that i can get but also the best chance of getting a good one.
The first has no negative responses about the monitor and therefore im guessing is the more reliable of the two on the whole has anyone had any major issues with this company.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ACHIEVA-Shimian-QH270-LITE-27-LG-S-IPS-LED-2560x1440-QHD-DVI-16-9-6ms-Monitor-/120911803193?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item1c26e7b339#ht_14580wt_1159
The second is slightly cheaper but has more negative responses but i know that this is one of the favoured sellers on this forum.
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-ACHIEVA-Shimian-QH270-Lite-27-LED-Quad-HD-DVI-2560x1440-16-9-6ms-PC-Monitor-/110833856200?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item19ce366ec8#ht_13291wt_1159

Also im in the UK has anyone bought these monitors to be shipped to the UK and had any problems with customs, do these companies bypass with labelling as a £30 package or do they put the actual price on and you have to pay the customs taxes.

Thanks for all of the help

Now they can label your package as being £30 but if it gets damaged in transit you can only claim back £30.
I did have some luck and declared mine full price and it got through no questions asked or extra fees, but at most its £30-£40.

Achieva based on some polls taken a while back (yeah, not extremely scientific, but there is more credibility in numbers) had a slightly higher rate of getting a 'bad monitor'. (Could be over 5 dead pixels, bad power brick, etc). Achieva has a better stand and looks better IMO.

Are there different versions of this monitor? If so, what (in your opinion) is the best version for gaming?
Where is the best place to order this from (link please and thank you thumb.gif )?
Thank you all! 1440p 27" IPS for under 500???? Seems too good to be true!
1) No, you need a 120 hz PCB. You'd have to buy from the right places.
2) Yes. A non-multi version without speakers. Tempered glass is neither good or bad. Easier cleaning, looks better, but chance of having dust trapped under the glass.
3) Ebay.
4) Yeah.

Not that I am saying this is the fault of the author of the thread. My Windows 7 prompt in response to attempting this upload/update was to curtly tell me that Windows already knew the best driver to use for the monitor and denied the request. My video card is a ASUS GT640-2GD3, if that helps. Any thoughts about how to do this in a Windows 7 OS environment without that "error" message?
Catleap monitor driver? You mean color profiles? I did it on Windows 7 also, 32 bit, no problems. I don't recall the monitor needing drivers.

I don't live in UK, so I don't know. For reference for the USA people, you will probably pay $0 in duties.
I like BCC. Seems nice and fair. Greensum did the job, but gave me the wrong monitor version... mine came without tempered glass. Not a HUGE problem. but annoying. It's not like he shipped me a toaster or something lol.

Is this the poll? http://www.overclock.net/t/1215866/reviewed-400-2560x1440-ips-no-ag-90hz-achieva-shimian-qh270-and-catleap-q270

2-3% isnt much haha, statistically would be well within margin of error for that poll size. I will probably grab the achieva then from greensum for $300. Looks like the dream seller listing for $275 does not come with a 120v power brick :/

You can't just go off of percentage like that... it's a multiple choice poll, picking you got a Catleap affects the percentage of the Shimian.

172 + 10 + 33 = 215 monitors, 172 out of 215 are good = 79.63%
196 + 7 + 24 = 227 monitors, 196 out of 227 are good = 86.34%

Yeah, and if I did the math wrong, things are not looking too good for my math class in college, lol. tongue.gif\

And if you get one of these monitors, VOTE IN THE POLL!

I wish that were true. I had to pay a ~£65 fee.

Anyone have a problem with display dropping out on your catleap, mine tends to be acting weird. Some days it's ok, but few days later it drops display for days then is works again. Purchased from green sum and they want me to ship it back ,but said if they test it and it works, they will ship it back and charge me shipping.
Now I know something is not right with this monitor and don't want them to pull it outta the box, fire it up and say, ah..this works fine ship it back. This problem has been on and off for 2months now. To the point I don't use it anymore, been using my 27'' viewsonic without any problems, so I don't think it's any of my hardware. Anyone have an idea what it could be and how is green sum to deal with?

This sounds more along the lines of a power brick failure than a monitor defect. Just my Two cents. 2cents.gif
