Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 162

post #1611 of 3508
I've had my Achieva Shimian QH270-IPSBS for about 2-3 weeks now and I love it. My only gripe is that on cold boot-up the screen looks all messed up(like the signal is not decoding correctly). I just have to turn it off and back on and voila, just fine. Backlight bleed is minimal and I have 0 stuck/dead pixels. I bought it from ta-planet mostly due to price at the time, he was the cheapest. Shipping was very prompt as expected.

Just ordered the QH270-IPSB a day ago from dream-seller and I sent him a message just to see when the general shipping time would be and got this:

dream-seller is out of the office until 09/30/2012 and may not be able to respond to your message.

Message from dream-seller:
HI!
Thanks for your message.

We are truly sorry,but it is not possible to quick reply to your question or asking.
One of our staff entered a hospital.
Only one staff who is not good at CS work replying all of message.
Because of this reason the answer could be delayed.
We beg your deep understanding with your generous mind.

Anyone think this will be an issue, or I will just get a poorly worded response. wink.gif

Dream-seller is one of the top sellers, I wouldn't worry too much. You should have it in a short time, but it will still feel like forever since you are waiting. thumb.gif

Anyone try using a Type B HDMI to DVI-D dual link cable with the shimian? I'm actually trying to find a cable that does this still. My laptop is running a 2048 x 1152 60p monitor over a HDMI 1.3 cable and it's working great. Is there such an adapter that does this?

had some emails with bcc there in process of testing the monitor biggrin.gif

b) QH270-IPSB – same as Lite version but comes with an additional layer of tempered glass (I don’t advise getting this model as you run the risk of having dust particles stuck at the back of the tempered glass which is very difficult to remove).
c) QH270-IPSBS – has a superior panel to the previous two models, it comes with two 5watt speakers at the back (does its job but not all that great) and has no tempered glass.
d) QH270-IPSMS – same as the IPSBS but comes with additional input ports; 1 HDMI port, 1 DVI-D port, Audio In/Out ports, and a VGA (D-Sub) port (I also don’t advise getting this model since additional inputs means more input lag, which is not ideal for gaming).
That article said the IPSBS uses a better panel I thought they were all the same LG panel - Is that not correct
edit: I just ordered the lite from Red Cap

The dust issue around here is massively overblown IMO. I have two IPSB's and I'd gladly deal with a dust particle or two (though mine have no dust at all) for the much better aesthetics these monitors achieve due to the edge-to-edge glass and bezel-less look. Check out the gorgeous Samsung S27B970D to see how these glass panels set off the look of the monitor...

A lot of people have had good luck with him, so I don't instantly think he is trying to rip me off.... I just think maybe he is not the best at communicating when he is out of stock, or whatever... for the record I purchased the IPSI model... so if anyone is looking to get that one, and wants it really quickly... red-cap might not be your best bet right at this moment.. I will post another update when I get some shipping confirmation, and then again when the monitor comes to let everyone know how my transaction with red-cap pans out... thanks!


So my monitor arrived today, I got the IPSI version from red-cap.. It took a week from when I ordered it (shipping took 3 days) but it arrived in perfect condition. I didn't order a pixel perfect version, but the panel that arrived doesn't have any dead pixels from what I can see... The power adapter does not specify 110v, only 230v, but it seems to work fine as others have reported.. it does not get too hot, but it's only been plugged in for an hour now. I would reccomend red-cap as a seller, and will use him again if I decide I want another one of these monitors.. can't believe I didn't order one sooner.

So I just received my shimian, its spectacular. I was hoping to run with this monitor and two 1080p monitors but so far that seems impossible, is there anyway to get this to work? I only plan on playing games on the shimian, I want the other two to be for Internet and other programs. I'm running dual gtx 560 ti 448's.

Sorry if this has been mentioned a billion times, its just a little hard to dig through some of these threads sometimes
