Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 15

post #141 of 3508
I just got my Shimian and have unpacked it. I got it from Red cap and it came three days after ordering(faster then getting an item from the other side of the states). I got a tempered glass version and there is ZERO dust behind the panel. I do have one worry though. I went through all ~400 pages of the original thread and all 14 of this thread and havent seen anyone mention this so I hope someone can chime in.

When I turn my monitor upside down, to the side, etc, I can hear what sounds like one tiny screw that falls down depending on what angle I hold the monitor.

Should I be worried? Do I need to take this thing apart and take out whatever is in there before I turn this on? I don't want to risk breaking this brand new monitor...

I would strongly advise against trying to take this monitor apart. One of my fellow forum users on OCUK tried to dismantle his Achieva Shimian with disastrous results -

I know he's also a member on here so if he spots this post he'll probably tell you all about his dismantling attempt.

On the other hand, there is someone who also successfully dismantled his:

Anywho, just got mine. One chunk of dust that needs to go, so I will also be dismantling at some point. The only thing I can say is: This is one amazing screen. I love it.

My point however was that if the screen works fine, has no sign of dust trapped underneath, and the only concern is a rattle when moved (not that once in use it will be moved/rotated often) then in that scenario it's probably not worth the risk attempting to dismantle the monitor.

Just made an account to post this.

ta_planet has just lowered the price of an Achieva Shimian QH270-Lite to $224.50. Almost seems too good to be true.

Hey thanks for the answer to my question.

The monitor emits zero noise once setup and only has that little something inside of it when "shaken" (I didn't shake my monitor, just tilted). I fired it up, and it runs fine with zero dead pixels and only a slight white backlight bleed in the bottom right (seems to be fairly common).

Beyond that its perfect.

Ok, so I ordered one of these screens and got it today. Figured I would post my experience thusfar

First off, I ordered on Sunday, as in like 4 days ago, and it is already here. Amazing!

Secondly, as far as pixels go, the screen is flawless!!

Third, I bought from TA_Planet and...will do so again if I get the stones to buy two more and go for three screens. (Not sure my 3 GTX 570s would handle it though....1440p x3 is a LOT to push even with one 570 per screen)



Now the issue. The screen has some very odd red color banding and fluctuating going on (when anything is in motion). I took a screenshot of it and viewed on another PC and it was fine, so it IS the screen. Do ya'll think its the power or the DVI cable? (As of this second I do not have a spare DVI but I'll test ASAP). I am using the power brick that came with the screen and just used the power cable for my Dell 2707wfp with it. There seems to be MASS confusion on what exactly to do power wise so I figured I'd ask what ya'll thought.

Took a pic that shows some of whats going on. Of course the red dots I am getting go nuts when screen items are in motion (Video, dragging a window, gaming, etc)
