I was averaging in the upper 40's as far as FPS goes and while its not the desired 60 frames Id like, it was still better than expected. My cards are the EVGA 570 SC's but are only 1.280meg. I'm sure it'd be a struggle to play a title or two (BF3 maybe..but BF3 is a poor excuse for a game so who cares), but it seems I could run most stuff ok. Still, I'll probably hold off for a while. Maxing anything with 3 570s on one screen is fine until the fall, then perhaps it will be time to add two more along with 3 of whatever the 680 refresh will be.
Bottom line, screen is great and I am pleased enough that if I had $700 left to burn I'd go for two more from TA in a second!

Its not processing power that you would run out of. Its vram. 1 gtx 570 has 1.28gb usable vram. 3 gtx 570s still only have 1.28 usable vram so disabling 2 cards didn't really test anything. Once you run out of vram things stutter and frame rate drops to below 20fps even though the video cards aren't really being stressed too much. Look at how much vram you are using with 1 monitor. You would probably need at least double the vram to drive 3 monitors.

I know that feel bro smile.gif
I remember when I got my Shimian. Then a day later I was slapped in the face when a dead pixel appeared in the top middle area of the screen frown.gif

Now I'm getting that feeling again with an amazing budget gaming laptop I just purchased for a mere $420! I cant wait to play games in school!

My Shimian QH270 Lite came today!

It arrived to the Netherlands, 5 days after the payment was cleared. Not bad. I had to pay 37 euro (47$) to the postman for the customs. It's okay.
My seller was Red-Cap, I got it for $329,95. 1 day after the payment was cleared he sent it to me. It was heavily bubblewrapped and packed well.

When setting it up, I realized the powerplug cable was a bit ****ed up. Like someone has stepped on it. As you can see in the pictures below, it was not round anymore like it should. With a scissors I messed up the shape a bit, so it eventually fitted in the monitor. Luckily it works!

It immediately came on like it should and showed the Bios screen and the windows logo like it should. Luckily, there are no dead or stuck pixels and no mentionable backight bleeding.
The only minor complaint I have, is that when having a white background (like Google for instance), there is a yellowish tint going on, starting from like the middle of the screen downwards. It really is minor, and only noticable on a white background.

Is there anyone I can do about it?

The rest is really great. For this price I can live with the yellow tint and enjoy the other features like great colours, a big immersive screen, no ghosting with games and a perfect resolution for my film editing.

Here are some pictures for those who's interested. This community has helped me very much with making this great purchase. Without this forum, I would have never bought this monitor. I would not believe they were worth buying, or even find out about them at all. So if anyone has questions, please feel free to ask me anything.

Question to you guys with the monitor at home:

Does anyone of you also has that yellow tint? It's famous in the iMac as well... I am just wondering if this can progress into something worse? Or if it's nothing to worry about.

I think the yellow tint on the iMac had something to do with the backlight. If not than maybe the iMac's weren't properly calibrated. I have/had no suck issue with my Shimian. The only thing that bothered me was the monitor had a slight tint of green but a color profile a member uploaded on the original Shimian thread fixed it smile.gif

I'm trying to hold off for one more price drop. Any of you guys think he will lower it anymore? It's already at 334. I was hoping for high teens to mid twenties

Why, oh why, is the price difference between HDMI models and non-hdmi models so great?
