post #1351 of 3508
So the white IPSB's are still available right. I see several for sale on Ebay right now. Definitely want the IPSB...

I ordered a second Pixel perfect Achieva Shimian Lite from Ta_Planet. Put the order in on Friday nite Aug 17 and its already on its way from Memphis to Vancouver. If I'm lucky it will be here in Nanaimo on Vancouver island on Monday. Now that is fast service. Crossed fingers on getting another great monitor.

I emailed several of the Ebay sellers asking if they can still get IPSB models instead of IPSI. Keeping my fingers crossed..

I'm about to order one from DHSummer, he seems to have the lowest price so far, and someone else from this thread seems to have gotten a well-functioning monitor. Pulling the trigger!

Can I pay with a credit card through PayPal?

Also, can someone direct me to a legit voltage adapter?

I'll be getting my qh-270 lite from dream seller. I originally ordered a catleap, but after more than a week of delay due to holidays, bad panels, and lack of supply of catleap, dream seller offered me the shimian perfect version instead. I wasn't sure about it, but decided to pull the trigger on it. So, now I'm paying 290 bucks for the qh-270 lite perfect version. Was this a good deal?

I only want the IPSB model of the Shimian. Really hard to find one now though. May have to go with a white version as they still seem to be available...

Yes, quite good for a perfect pixel. The lowest price I remember seeing was from red_cap at around $320. You'll still have some BLB, but at least you're guaranteed the perfect pixels. I bought 2 perfect pixels and 1 regular. All 3 of them have no dead/stuck pixels. I guess I got lucky on the regular one.

Cool, I can't wait to get my panel. If I like it, I might get a second one. Probably a HDMI version. I noticed this model WECUBE ST2770W from dream seller which has hdmi and costs 369; cheapest I've seen. From searching on this forum, I don't think anyone has it. Would this be worth the risk?

Got my QH-270 Lite a week ago from green-sum. Ordered late on Thursday night, arrived on Monday. Didn't go for pixel perfect but no pixel issues at all. There's some slight backlight bleed on the top, it's only possible to see it when the brightness is down. Even with dark scenes on full brightness it's amazing.
Just need to find a reasonable length cable that works with it now, seems my 5m cable isn't going to cut it without a booster.

I too am just about to purchase an Achieva Shimian QH270 lite from dhSummer and have been communicating with them for the last few days with questions. They have been extremely helpful and communicative. They told me they ship the FREE voltage bricks with their monitor that will work in the USA (120v 60Hz), however, you still need a C to A adapter so it will plug into the wall in the USA. They have these on Amazon for about $2.00 or less (search "VP7 ADAPTER PLUG" on Amazon). You can link your credit card to your PayPal account.

I suggest you confirm the above with dhSummer yourself before purchase.


FOR THOSE CONSIDERING PURCHASING THE OPTIONAL WARRANTY:
I was only considering purchasing the monitor with their 3yr. SquareTrade warranty for $34.99 that was supposed to be honored in the USA. However, today dhSummer took this option off their listing. So I called SquareTrade directly and received some interesting responses. Yesterday (when the 3yr warranty was on the listing), the SquareTrade representative told me it would be honored in the USA after the initial 45 days of ownership. Today, when I called SquareTrade (after finding the warranty was no longer on the ebay listing), the representative told me S. Korean monitors will not be warranteed by a SquareTrade waranty, an item would need a USA warranty to have SquareTrade coverage. Then we were disconnected, so I called SquareTrade back. The representative I spoke to in this latest call said, SquareTrade will provide a warranty on this S. Korean monitor if you warantee it on their (SquareTrade) sight. However, because it does not have a USA warranty, SquareTrade will consider it as being a USED ITEM (even though it is NEW) and it would not be eligible for a 3yr warranty! He said, for the same price ($34.99), I would get a 1yr. warranty and they could later continue the warranty for $17.50 for a second year. Unbelievable what you find when you dig and the different answers you can get. From what I've read, SquareTrade is a reputible company and their warrantees are good, but all these different responses are having me wonder about purchasing such a warranty on a oversees product. Or even taking the chance on purchasing from overseas. I read many people had good experiences, some had bad, so I am a bit more cautious now - but, who knows, I may take a chance.

If anyone has other information regarding the purchase of the optional warranty, I'd be interested in learning more.
