Here you are... This is the QH270 Lite (Pixel Perfect) from Red Cap.

I'll post some pictures and brief impressions either tonight or tomorrow.

here's my review: GO BUY IT NOW!!!

lol

seriously though, i spent the last four years using a Sony Bravia 32" LCD tv (1920x1080) as my PC monitor. i use my PC 90% of the time for gaming. i picked up a Shimian lite (cheapest one with no extra's) from Red Cap. it was not advertised as a perfect pixel screen, however, there are zero dead/stuck/whatever pixels. there was some backlight bleeding in the top right and bottom left of the screen. after some research i learned that the two buttons below the power button on the back of the monitor actually work (all others do nothing) and controls the brightness. the brightness was at the max setting out of the box. i lowered to about 60% and almost all of the backlight bleed is gone. going from the Sony to this was like going from SD TV to HD TV. would buy again in a heartbeat...

He has raised the price by $5 since I purchased but I have no regrets on my purchase from here and the quality of my monitor is fantastic - i have had mine for 2 weeks and whenever I turn it on I am amazed.

although green sum has them for $15 cheaper and he has a lot of good reviews also

I just noticed something strange... When I opened Word document (white background, black text), some weird high frequency sound started coming out of my Shimian. When I minimize Word document, it stops.

I tried opening Notepad and maximizing it and there was no sound, but when I filled the whole Notepad with random text, there was that sound again, a bit different, as if it's different frequency.

What gives?

The Diamond 7970 is back in stock at Newegg for $315 AR. Great card for 2560x1440 displays. I sprung for two of them. Will be used for bitcoin mining and gaming.
