Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 165

post #1641 of 3508
I ordered my Lite from TA_Planet late Saturday night and it arrived at noon on Tuesday. This thing is pixel perfect with just very minimal lighbleed along a small portion of the top of the screen. It has the new 110v adapter and so far is working great. He even puts in a little hand written note saying he tested it and saying thanks for the purchase.

I have a EVGA 570 at stock speeds atm and it runs WOW on Ultra around 40 - 60 fps. I have a 7950 on the way though.

atm have send them the paypal factuur and hope this solves it but my god this is the last time i import something -.-
I have a similar problem, but with a twist.

Fedex charged me 40% customs charges as they classified it as a TV. After complaining, they corrected it to a PC monitor which has NO charges. Now, 2 months later, they are threatening legal action if I don't pay the original fraudulent charges that they mistakenly paid.

They make a mistake and now I have to pay. Wow Fedex.

How's the life on these monitors? Does anyone recommend the square trade warranty based on daily gaming usage?

I personally just use Catalyst Control Center. If you have Nvidia you can use that control panel for picture settings as well...

ok, got it up and running without any issues. looks great so far (haven't really tested it out much).

i ordered from red-cap and received the "upgraded" welltronics power brick. i currently have it plugged in to the 2 prong cord that shipped with it and the 2 prong into a small US adapter that also came with it. am i ok going this route or should i use a standard US power cable with the brick?

I am running a GTX 470 with mine, been pleasantly surprised at its performance. I am, however, upgrading to a 7970.

I would go straight to the property authorities, and in mass. Whichever entity regulates business and trade, executives of FedEx, any sort of Better Business Bureau for your region, any customer advocacy groups.

I bet they back down and change their minds on how they go after this.

just ran a dozen or more pixel tests and have ZERO dead/stuck!!

i didn't pay extra for "pixel perfect" either :-p

there is a bit of backlight bleeding near the top right corner but only noticeable on a 100% black screen.

gonna test some games now

Hi Guys, I seem to be having a issue with my monitor. I got it about 5 days ago.

When the monitor gets signal either from a computer turning on or waking up from sleep, The screen would flicker 2 or 3 times and then it would be normal. I notice when the monitor does flicker, the green led on the power brick would flicker the same as the monitor.I believe this might be a power supply related issue.

Also I do see the image of my login screen (just without the backlight) so I know its not a signal from the laptop / computer and more of a PSU related thing.

Here is a youtube video I took this morning of the exact issue.

Id also like to mention that i did purchase the one from ta_planet that had the better power supply with upgraded chipset & larger noise filter.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks!

Hm....odd.

I would start with trying another power supply, only because you mention the power supply light does flicker, which it shouldn't. Outside of that it could be loose wiring in the display, although if this was the case I would expect the issue to persist.
