Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 19

post #181 of 3506
My Shimian just arrived!!! This thing is sweet, looks like a giant iPad HAHAHAHAHA

I ordered the Achieva Shimian QH270-IPSBS Model, never knew what they were talking about color difference until I saw it myself (pardon the pictures, they were taken from my Galaxy Note):

The Box wasn't bubble wrapped or anything, no damage done to it though, and I found a note inside saying this is pixel perfect from Kinam!

I was so excited when I opened the box =)

All the contents of the box: comes with a power brick, the power cord, a speaker jack, the bottom of the stand, the dual dvi-d cord, and of course, the monitor itself!

My Shimian sitting along side my placeholder monitor (Samsung Syncmaster SA300) looks tiny

No dead pixels to report, no dents, no flaws whatsoever, I must have been a very good person in my previous life.

So my DHL tracking shows processed through the same city I live in. Does anyone know if that means it will be delivered today or tomorrow?

If it is about to be delivered the tracking will state that it's on the delivery truck already

Stab, gsv883: Turn down brightness down to 0 and display a white screen. Does it look like these?

I'm thinking if it's possible to order those pcb's for the Catleap and put them inside my Shimian. Maybe OC one and one that will fix the uneven backlight pcb. (yes you can fix the board board with soldering, but they look so tiny i'll propably ruin the whole board;)
Anyone know if this is possible??

I wouldnt say that the backlight looks completely even, but it's not nearly as bad as the one in the picture that you showed me. I dont think its a backlight problem actually... But what it is? No idea.

I received my ipsb model today from TA Planet. I can confirm that it works with a ATI 5870. It came in 2 days. Super fast. Well the monitor works 100% . That is the good news. The bad news is that it seems I have a cluster of dead pixels on the right side of the screen. Am I upset? Not really because I don't even notice the dead pixels unless I stick my eyeball up to the glass and search. I guess I would be mad if I payed over 500 dollars for this. But it was 330 and got here in 2 days. Good deal if you ask me.
Some extra notes: There was a note in my box hand written from the shipper saying: "Tested Ok, no dead pixels, perfect" and "Sorry, there is small dust".
Guess he didn't see the dead pixel cluster on the right. Let me knwo if you guys have any questions. Cheers!

My advice for those on the fence about whether or not to order one of these. ...Understand that this is a gamble and you might not receive a perfect panel. Be ready to have some dead pixels.
Though, if you ask me, dead pixels are hard to see unless you try. I posted some pics via imageshack, Let me know if they dont show up. I am a newb with pictures and imageshack.

Update on 4/24/12.: So after further testing this appears to be a lot of dust particles behind the glass cover. Only seems to have one dead pixel.

Does anyone else here has a slight yellow tint / tinge on white and gray backgrounds? (like Google.com) Mine is like a minor vertical gradient. Perfectly white in the top, but slightly yellowish in the down.

I wonder if its something to worry about...

Ordered 4 of these together with some friends, 3 of them came in today, we're still waiting on the 4th one. The first one we tried out has a bunch of horizontal lines across the screen. Do you guys think this is an issue with the display? Tried it on two systems, gtx260 and 6950. The second display didn't have any issues on the system with the 6950.

We tried changing the refresh rate and that didn't seem to really do anything, it helped a little bit I guess. I tried taking a picture of the monitor but the picture doesn't show the lines. They're evenly space from top to bottom. The lines vary light and dark. Anyone have any suggestions for things I could try? TIA
