Guys take it from me, pay extreme attention to the fact that you need your power supply not connected to power before you plug it into your panel or you could have a completely fried board. I even have a correct power adapter for USA (110v-220v) frown.gif

Hugh? I have done that same thing many times with no smoking electronics. Maybe you had a mad monitor? I mean I guess what you're saying is better safe than sorry, but still I don't think that is what killed it.

I mean I've done that with literally hundreds of electronics products without failure of that kind. (used to work at an electronics store so that adds up wink.gif)

My point is that if you touch the pins in reverse you are going to create a short which is very easy since there is no plastic guard like you see with the end that connects to the outlet side of the power supply.

I too have done it with many electronics before with no ill results because of the fact that most things have a guard around them that keeps you from creating a short before inserting your cable correctly.

So what's the deal with the IPSB and IPSI versions? I want the IPSB that has the glass extending over the bezel (looks much better than the plastic bezel IPSI). Has anybody gotten an IPSB recently or are they all IPSI's now?

As far as I'm aware, all sellers now carry IPSI models (ones that still list IPSB will probably have IPSI pictures, IPSI is replacing IPSB).

I have received a IPSB (glass over the bezel) from ta_planet on Monday (Ordered last week Thursday). The only thing is this is the white version (really the only difference is a white stand vs a black stand, which I think white looks better). He has it listed at $380 or so.

I received my Achieva Shimian lite from green-sum in 3 days, and the first day was a Korean holiday. I set it up and there was no dead pixels and very low backlight bleeding, just a little at the top center of the screen. This thing is awesome and would recommend it to anyone.

Yeah, IPSI is taking over IPSB. I was going to get a IPSB but decided on the IPSI instead. I must say that I am an advocate of the brushed metal look and it goes decently with my Lian-li.

Erm... Well, my case is 19.29" deep and my speakers are 11 1/8" deep... So you do the math there champ, looks like about 30.415" to me.
