For those with extreme backlight bleed issues, please do not give up! You can open up the panel by gently pulling up on the black front bezel from the screen side. Use a piece of paper to protect the screen as you do this. The bezel is held down by tabs and double sided tape, so start from the sides of the screen where there is less tape. Do this slowly. Once the underlying white bezel is exposed, unscrew the 8 screws. You should now have access to the panel in its metal encasement. Mind had bad lightbleed on the bottom two corners. It seemed like the panel was warped. Guess what? It was! The metal casing was actually bent a bit outward on the bottom. I gently bent it back into place and tested it. Absolutely awesome backlight uniformity now. Please try this before wasting time to send back. smile.gif

I just pulled mine apart and didn't notice anything wrong. I pulled the panel out a little then put everything back into place. When screwing it up I left most of them fairly loose just so I know there is no extra pressure on the panel. Over all it's still not perfect (I can notice 3 small light spots on the top of a black screen) but I think it may have helped a little there use to be small spot on the right side. It's not a hard process so I think it is worth other people giving it a shot.

Still pleased with the monitor over all.

UPDATE!!! It was the cable!!! Phew!! I got that cable from RadioShack, plugged it in, works perfectly. Assemble everything together, plug it in, green screen again Changed the DVI slot on my graphics card, now works perfectly w/o dead pixel... This thing is picky w/o connection
post #1274 of 3508
I recieved mine today from Redcap!

I see no dead pixels at all and the colours appear to be great!
I have one strange part on the left edge of my screen, against the bezzel where the monitor gets dark in two separated 1 inch spots.
This shadow is only visible when viewing solid screens of colour like red or white.
I suppose it's no big deal.

No dead pixels and 2 days shipping makes me SO happy though.
AHHHH YEAAA

It sounds like it's NOT the cable, if you were still getting the green screen with the new cable but fixed it by switching dvi ports... It sounds like that dvi socket being bad or else not of the recommended kind.

After some research, it seems like it's either a cable, driver, or mobo/bios issue. Other people have had this problem with different monitors, so I don't think it's any slight on Achieva. I may try and get an aftermarket dual DVI cable for like $5 just to see if it fixes it. Otherwise, I'll ignore it..not going to flash bios and all that just to get standby when I turn it off. Standby works when there is inactivity. Are you still using the stock cable it came with?

This isn't an issue exclusive to these monitors. My old Samsung 24" wouldn't go into Standby with different cables or different PC's. Never did figure it out, very annoying.

I'm thinking of buying one of these monitors but I was wondering

1) Is it worth getting the tempered glass version?

2) Would you clean it like other monitors?

3) If I get the hdmi version can I switch between my xbox on hdmi and pc on dvi?

4) Do the osd buttons work?

5) Do they last as long as other monitors?

6) Is it worth getting the Pixel Perfect version?

7) Has anyone bought the non pixel perfect version, if so how was it?

Thanks.

I would answer all those questions but it would be easier if you just took about 10-15 minutes read through the thread youll get every answer and plus plenty of compliments/complaints from different sellers and versions smile.gif

I don't know if it's been this way for a while, but there's a seller on ebay selling the Shimian QH270-Lite for $235.90. Don't think I'm allowed to link to it, but if you type in "ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-Lite" into the ebay search bar it will be near the top.
