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

Sounds like a bad cable/lose connector.

That's what I was thinking, but the same cable works fine on the second monitor =/ They're all QH270-Lite. So I guess it must be internal then?

Ordered 4 from bigclothcraft. 3 of them came in today, really fast shipping. I think they shipped out from Korea on Monday, or at least that was when the shipping info was added. So, 3 days to Cali is really nice. Though I'm dealing with an issue with one of them. Hopefully returns aren't too much of a hassle =/

I have the same problem of uneven backlighting, but VERY MINIMAL, to even see the uneveness (left side slightly darker than the left) I have to view the monitor from the right side.

@Stab

I don't have that yellow tint problem on my ShiMian

I have been stalking the Achieva Shimian and am planning to order one of the lite models on the 1st. From the forums here and at the [H]ard|OCP forums I have read enough positive reviews regarding purchases from TA Planet that I plan to order through him. Looking at the Ebay listings however I see he has multiple listings for the same products at different prices.

The cheapest is for $319.99 currently, and it has the sublisting of "Fully Tested before, Perfect work, Free Volt (110~240V)". The next most expensive lite model is $339.99 and this does not say it is fully tested or "perfect work". This gives me the idea that maybe the cheap one is something that has been opened and has dead/stuck pixels that was not good enough to send as a "perfect pixel" model... yet I see no bad feedback for this on Ebay. Anyone have any idea why the cheap one appears to be a "tested" model? Any reason to choose one over the other?

Could be just total luck but the one I bought from TA_Planet was the cheaper variety (though at the time that listing did NOT say the model would be tested).....and the screen I got is about as flawless as I could imagine. Every pixel works, and very very little light leakage. Planning to order at least one more. Only downside I suppose was that the screen was just shipped in its box, no other packing. but that is minor in my opinion.

Well that fits with my gut feeling is - that the "fully work" version plus the lower price is a win/win. I'll probably order that one anyway, just seems too good to be true. If they were bum units/refurbs/returns that he was reselling surely ebay would show some bad feedback.

I ordered form TA Planet. I ordered the regular monitor with glass and I thought I had dead pixels but after further inspection there is only one dead pixel. I just have a lot of dust behind the glass. I cant see the dust unless look for it though. I think the glass version is awesome. I guess I will to remove the glass if I want to get rid of the dust.

Also: The ebay listing did not say it was perfect with no dead pixels.
However, when it arrived it had a not saying tested and perfect pixels. But liek I said ...I found 1 dead pixel.

How were customs handled for your orders? Did you have to pay anything at the time of delivery?
