Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 184

post #1831 of 3508
After my DOA catleap, I decided I'd try again.. Grabbed a shimian qh270 lite and just got it about an hour ago. Screen is perfect so far!

Have a few questions for the shimian guys though, what color profiles are you using, and what brightness levels? I know the catleap guys were going 8-10 clicks up from 0. Same thing here?

Go check out the Catleap club and use ToastyX color profile. Remember these are the same panels so their profiles will work on these. Out of the three profiles I like the catleap-native.icm the best. And I am pretty sure the profile adjusts the brightness also because I just tried to change it in my nvidia control panel and I have the choose color is set to other applications and the brightness looks fine.

Was anyone using a dell 2407wfp-hc before getting one of these?

How's the black level compare to the dell?

The black level will generally be better on high end Dells. I find that this monitor is ok for HTPC because it doesn't scale 1080p video well and the blacks aren't that deep for high end photo shop. But where this monitor beats everything in price and performance is in PC gaming.

Joining the club. Have a QH270-IPSBS on the way. My first monitor larger than a 1080p 24" I bought 5 years ago. Excited.

i've been playing around with different profiles and settings using Nvidia control panel. the catleap-native looks fantastic!

I played around with about 6 to 8 different profiles before I found one that I liked. Then I woke up this morning and changed it again. There is a lot of variation between panels, it seems. It might also be placebo, but I can't help but feel like the panel is "warming up" and changing personality a bit.

No problem:D. I found that profile pops the white a little better than the other two.
