It was the cheapest one TA had listed at the time, last I saw the listing had gone up to 305. Ordered it last Thursday, came this Tuesday. Not bad considering the holiday weekend but not as fast as some people have been reporting.

Still love this thing. Noticing the IPS glow a bit now, is it relatively uniform across all of these panels or does it vary at all?

If I sit too close the bottom corners start to glow a touch.. Damn crappy eyes and small text tongue.gif

Hi everyone.

I ordered a monitor from ta_planet and it shipped out Wednesday afternoon in Korea. Do you think I will get it Friday if I am in California?

Right now its at Newark NJ and hasn't updated for over 12hours. it should have gone from Alaska to Ontario but it went to NJ instead.

I really want to play and set it up for the weekend.

Thanks!

Just ordered 2 pixel perfect Shimians from red-cap. Hopefully all is well when they arrive!

In response to both of you, our issues may be slightly "different," although it might be that my monitor ha
sn't broken down as much as yours yet. I only get a black screen or vertical lines when I turn on my monitor, not during use.
Are you two using the shipped DVI-D cable that came with your monitor? If so, swap it. I did that with mine and "so far so good." Although I've only turned my monitor on and off four times since the switch, so I'm not a 100% sure this fixed the problem. More like, 20% sure, lol. Which isn't a stat I can live with.
I'm about to contact eBay's Buyer Protection program and note that like me, some people are getting faulty monitors and the second we the buyer received our product, the seller and all promised customer support drops off the face of the planet.
So try swapping out your cables and I'm going to contact eBay in the mean time and make them aware of the way in which Dream-seller operates, which by eBay's standards is unacceptable.

I bought a dvi cable for 40 dollar to test it out. At first it work but only for 10 second. And now it is starting to do the same thing again. At first for the 30 minute use I was using the one that was ship with me.

New here. Long time lurker.

QH270 IPSB with glass.
I have ordered 5 screens total. Greensum, redcap and bigclothcraft. I kept 2, the other 3 to my friend.
Today one of my screens died. light blinking and backlight on, but no picture. Tried switching cables with a working one and no luck.


Greensum and redcap both had 110-240v bricks.
The 3 from bigclothcraft had 190-240v bricks with a sticker "110v is acceptable". Confirmed with my friend with the others that they are running hot. I suspect the "110v is acceptable" sticker is not accurate and as a result, I have a dead screen.

Have you guys noticed the MATTE non glare version by Red-cap? It also has HDMI and VGA. Is this a new model or just creative description?

Just search ebay for: ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-IPSMS Matte

Matte would be perfect since I have large windows right behind me.

Need some advice.

Bought a Shimian Lite a couple months ago, shipped to Trinidad (Caribbean) from Ta-Planet. Fedex at first charged me a duty & VAT fee, as they cleared it as a LCD Television. All computer equipment is both duty and VAT free here. After refusing to pay, they (Fedex), returned to customs and then allowed me to clear the item without any illegal charges.

My problem is that afterwards, Fedex sent a bill for the duty & VAT that was incorrect in the first place. I spoke to the office and was told, "don't worry, the old info was in the system and will be corrected". Yesterday, I got a note by mail saying I have 30 days to pay or legal action will be taken against me.

The country manager is an arrogant man and we argued about the initial fee. He basically said Fedex cannot be wrong and I
answered strongly.

Any advice on how to handle this?

Oh yeah, definitely want the ones with the bricks using less power.

For my stance on glossies: If you're going to spend money on an IPS, might as well go all out on color with a glossy. Block the windows if you have to.
