Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 191

post #1901 of 3508
Yes I contacted the seller, I'll wait for them. I wonder if dust is covered. Either way, it's a defect. I don't know how hard it would be to open the case, but the risk is great that I'll get additional dust, as I don't have a dust free room to work with.

Dust is not usually covered, sadly.
post #1903 of 3508
That's too bad, since I purposely didn't get a tempered glass version of this monitor because I don't want dust. If it is dust, then we now know that it can occur in even the Lite version.

I'll keep this forum updated on the seller's response. I would strongly suggest to all NOT to buy from dream-seller until they update their policy and/or testing.

I'm not too sure of what he is saying. Broken backlighting on one side is not uncommon, and is not too hard of a fix. Besides that, this panel is flawless. I would not be so gloomy, but if you are considering buying a monitor, do it now or forever hold your peace.

However there is one issue you may find yourself running into and that's a Vram limit if you have the 2GB variant of that card. Don't get me wrong even if they are 2GB models they will still perform perfectly in 99% of games until you get to the games that require intense amounts of Vram, And if you are into the latest AAA titles you will have noticed they are getting more Vram intensive with each release. BF3 already uses up near that much maxed out imagine what Crysis 3 will do?
^TLDR:
Yes you're cards will net you some serious FPS at 1440P. (Highly suggest you read the whole thing though.) thumb.gif

Yeah, they're the 2gb variants.

Got mine today from red_cap. No dead pixels and I haven't noticed any yellow tinting that a few people were getting, but the backlight bleeding is pretty bad, but luckily I don't watch movies on this screen, so I will hopefully rarely notice it.

Just wish I knew that there wouldn't be any osd controls, because the brightness is killing me, and adjusting the profile doesn't turn the backlight down so it doesn't really help.

I would buy another, but I'd get one with controls.

maybe, you set frequency rate differently?
The default value is 60Hz.
Small subjective issue is not the reason of return or exchange.
If you want to exchange the monitor, both shipping cost is buyer's charge.
But shipping cost is excessive for both of us. (Now it's not worth it)
As you may know or not.
Yamakasi monitor stopped to make the monitor temporarily.
The reason is panel quality is less than before.
Recent stock quality is also serious than your expectation.(?)
I expect Korea high quality 27" IPS monitor may be disappeared.(?)
I hope you decide to use the monitor as it is.

--That's what I get. I think this is the problem. http://www.overclock.net/t/1225919/yamakasi-catleap-monitor-club/2150#post_16892874
Except for me it is the other half. There is a "fix" for it, but I am not sure what it's worth. Here http://forum.ixbt.com/topic.cgi?id=28:27061-28#896
It's in Russian, which I speak, but Google translate can make it clear enough to understand.
Should I open her up? If I could fix the backlight issue, I would end up with a flawless monitor.

Small subjective issue? Half of the backlight is bad, personally that isn't a small issue. If I were in your position I would continue to push for a return, at the sellers expense, as I would consider this a major defect. If the seller didn't want to play ball I would contact eBay, Paypal, and the bank for the credit card I used. The seller would be put in a position of either replacing the display or losing the money on the entire thing.

I would, and I think most would agree, consider a small subjective issue to be dust behind the tempered glass if you had it, backlight bleeding, stuck/dead pixels. Not what you are describing.

All your controls that you get in an OSD, well mostly, can be found in the Nvidia Control Panel or AMD Catalyst Center. Both have a brightness slider you can dim the display with.

Yea, but it doesn't actually turn the backlight down like monitor controls would, does it?

Al;so, my nvidia settings won't stick for some reason, after I apply it goes back in 10 seconds.

These monitors HAVE buttons for backlight control. The two below the on/off button.

I am now completely satisfied with this purchase! Thanks! Fixes the backlight bleeding a lot too!

I messed with the buttons earlier, and the light blinked, but didn't think they worked.
