Sorry to hear that.. This is exactly what has kept me from getting one of these.. I would rather pay like $200 more and get something like this...

or

Just for that piece of mind.

Well, my Yamakasi was 370$, thats way cheaper, but only if it lasted. It was the one with multiple inputs

Also, I didn't know Asus made a 1440p monitor, neato.

Do you think that GTX 470 is also not enough?

My GeForce GTX 460 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 has no problem displaying on my Q270 and the darkplaces Quake engine runs 60+ fps with practically all graphics except AA (which isn't needed) on the highest settings and with large textures. I can't comment on any other games.

Catleap has worse stand than Shimian. You might want to check overlord tempest too.
Tbh I wouldn't buy any of those koreans except shimian for $320~. Nobody really lives in Korea and most countries have taxes etc. bringing the crossover price to around $450 if you cheat which is very close to $620 Dell, far too superior to them. Those monitors are only worth it if you are really poor or buying more of them but again, if you are poor you probably don't have the power to run anything else then movies/low games.

I bought it mid August and about 2 weeks ago it broke on me. What it does is it fades to black. The higher the resolution, the more often it does it, eventually staying black if there is "to much" on the screen. At first I thought the factor was brightness, since bringing up a blank text document full screen (all white screen) would perma-black the screen until I click the close button (which is easy enough w/o looking at the screen) but that became inconsistent. I have a couple videos of it on youtube (link only). Shipping costs way to much to ship it back to get it fixed, as the seller already asked me to do so (Dream-Seller).

Hopefully someone has fixed this or knows how to?!


This happens on anything plugged into the monitor at any resolution. (HDMI/DVI XBOX/desktop/laptop)

For how much I loved this monitor (wish I found a black one) and that it broke on me, I will be buying another if I can't get this fixed since it will be cheaper than the shipping both ways. Thanks guys for reading all this.

Hmm. I would have to guess that is a problem with the board that handles the signal processing, but when it fades out it makes me think it's a problem with the led backlight board like the shimians have. Can the seller possibly do something with shipping you replacement boards? Have you opened it up to see if anything looks fried?

Only thing Dream-Seller has offered me so far was shipping it back to them for repairs. If I can't fix it or get replacement boards I may have to do that through USPS. Went to UPS today and every option was over 500$ to ship it there. They said it will be $100 something through USPS to ship it there, but I don't know about the return shipping. I'll open it up and look around. How much do these parts cost do you think? Thanks for the help.

Edit: Just took it apart and checked out every PCB. Nothing looks flawed. Looks like I may have to ship it to South Korea frown.gif

Damn, well it was worth a try IMO. 100 bucks still seems cheap, even through USPS. I don't know how much those boards cost, but if nothing looks fried I don't think it's worth throwing parts at it if you are not sure what's wrong. It has a one year warranty on it from the manufacturer (or should at least) so if DreamSeller finds it to be faulty I would think that he would cover the shipping both ways. If nothing else the shipping back to you should be covered. It's been said before, the shipping is the deal breaker if something goes wrong. That's what forced my hand on the extra warranty purchase. Mine flickers the backlight every once in a while for just a few seconds and it makes me happy that I don't have to worry about anything. I'm sorry for guys in your situation. If you are anything like me, you will feel the loss if your monitor situation goes completely south.
