Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 195

post #1941 of 3508
I'm about to bite the bullet on this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-ACHIEVA-Shimian-QH270-Lite-27-LED-Quad-HD-DVI-2560x1440-16-9-6ms-PC-Monitor-/110833856200?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item19ce366ec8

The price is almost worryingly cheap, but I've heard good things about green-sum. He promises <5 dead pixels. My 4870 does 2x dual DVI, although I realise it will be massively underpowered when gaming.

I've read some horror stories and some good stories, so I'll just cross my fingers and buy it unless there's a reason not to...

EDIT:
There is an even cheaper one from dream-seller...

ASUS introduced its newest line of stylish consumer PC monitors under the Designo series.

At the heart of the Designo series is IPS LCD panels with edge LED illumination

These are just what I found quickly, there are more.
Yea, but the question is what will the price be?

If they are as expensive as the current ones, we don't gain much by having these come out.

So after reading some more posts, now I'm scared to buy when. I read there are supply issues and because of that the quality has decreased dramatically?

I was going to order one tomorrow before they close for thanksgiving, but I don't know anymore.

Thanks, I went with green-sum actually because I couldn't say no to his 99.5% rating. And most of dream-sellers rating game from $0.10 make up masks wink.gif

I'm excited and scared!

I believe everyone should think long and hard on this post. This is what got me reflecting on recent 2560x1440 IPS offerings by more legitimate monitor names. This is from Ta_Planet. Why would he be saying something that might depress his own sales. I bought mine from him and found his business practices to have good ethical principles.

Until supply increases, which is not an quick event, then I think these Korean brands will suffer from a lower average panel quality.

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.

How is Dream-Seller as far as a seller? I wanted the tempered glass (IPSB model) and he has one of the cheapest ones:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ACHIEVA-Shimian-QH270-IPSB-Quad-HD-2560x1440-16-9-27-Monitor-Tempered-Glass-/320857320377?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4ab4962bb9

Also, I understand that I can replace the end of the power brick with my own PSU cable. Will I need anything else, or do Dual-Link DVI cables typically come with the monitors?

Looking to buy this today, as he says there's a holiday on Sep. 30th for them, and they will only ship orders placed today, otherwise I wait a week.

Thanks!

wow drool.gif $275 dollars for this monitor its just crazy!! i have a question why this monitors from the same seller have different prices?
are this $275 with dead pixel or with some led bleeding? i would like to buy that one but im not really sure... any thoughts?
post #1948 of 3508
I don't know why they have the same item listed several times. That confused me too.

I went with the slightly more expensive green-sum because his rating looked better and I had found stories of people who had got full refunds for defective products from them before.

This also worried me.

Ii received this reply from Ta_planet " all of Korean monitor supply price is getting higher and worse, panel quality is getting down"

and after this I still ordered one (from red_cap) (non pixel perfect)

I ordered mine last Thursday to the UK and received it on Monday morning. One dead or stuck pixel to the left (only appears on red background for some reason) which isn't noticeable at all and very little back-light bleed with no yellow tint as some others have said they have. Overall i couldn't be more happy.

so its up to you whether you want to take the risk with these, but there are still some great screens left judging by mine smile.gif

I hope I get lucky too... should be arriving next week.

I can stand a few dead pixels and bleeding... I'm more worried about them being completely defective. Unlikely, I think.

Also, welcome to OCN!
