I feel the same way I'm sure if I did some advanced test I would find a dead pixel or two that's why I try not to or else I would always look in that spot but the red green blue tests can just tell me if there are too many or a dead pixel in the way.

Could someone please tell me the exact lenght of the supplied DVI-D cable with the Achieva monitors?? Then I know if I should buy another one before my monitor arrives. Thank you so much.

Hey people, I'm really tempted by this monitor, but there's one thing I'd like to know before committing to the purchase.

How much room is there from the bottom of the monitor to your desk? To clarify what I mean, here's an amazing rendering I made in Paint:
462

I hope the clearence is enough so I can keep my current set of speakers and my Xbox controller underneath.

Thanks in advance if you go to the trouble of measuring this for me!

There is a model that has a stand you can raise and lower. If it is that important .The Crossover, or any marked LED-P should have a stand you can raise.

Does anyone else notice brightness lowering when viewed at an angle? Compared to my Dell IPS, its a considerable difference - the dell maintains its brightness/contrast a lot better.

Thanks for the measurements! My speakers are about 3.5" tall when laying on their side... I guess I could just move them back a bit.

Unfortunately my speakers are surround sound satellites, so they're a little bigger... I use my headphones mostly anyway, so it's no big deal. Thanks for the pic, nice to see the stand in a bit more detail.

I was looking at an LED-P Crossover, but it's a lot more expensive than the Shimian ($334 for the Shimian vs $396 for the Crossover)... Portrait orientation would be nice for playing vertical games, reading, or programming, but the thing about these screens is that it's like having two 1280*1440 screens next to each other anyway.

Decisions decisions!
