Does anyone have the white version? if so, can you guys post some pictures of the white version?
I was not able to find any pictures of the white version of the shimian on the thread....
I really want a white monitor to go along with my new white PC setup.
I just want to check how it looks before splurging $350 on one.

I've got a White IPSB but my digital camera is over at my parents at the moment. I could take some pics with my HTC but the quality would be average at best.

If you're prepared to wait until late I'll go and get my camera back and take some pics.

EDIT -




If you need any more photos let me know.

PS - You can tell I play a lot of FPS games from the imprint of my left hand on the G15.

Well my 27" hannsg(lol) is finally dying so I think I'm going to pick up a shimian. Looks like dhsummer has them for the cheapest. Anyone had a bad experience with him?
post #2056 of 3508
My 2 monitors bought from green-sum were shipped out through DHL on Sept 28th, but still no information at all on the tracking page and it's the 4th in Korea. Guess they partied hard during Thanksgiving!
post #2057 of 3508
Ok so I'm set on getting 1 of these first and then possibly 2 more to run in surround. My only dilemma now is which seller (leaning towards accessorieswhole and ta_planet) and whether to grab a pixel perfect which ironically doesn't fully ensure it lol.

Another issue I'm hoping someone here can help me out with is whether a Achieva Shimian QH270 Lite can be mounted on an Ergotron LX Desk mount? I worry because the monitor weighs 8.4kg from the specs n the web and the mount has a limit of 9kg. I'd be cutting it close so I want to know if anyone has successfully done this? I need the extra mobility provided by the LX over the MX version.

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Good idea! Until it's actually set up as a poll, here's my data. Bought non-perfect pixel Lite model from red-cap.

FAILURE RATE ACHIEVA SHIMIAN
1-How many month of life had your Yamasaki Shimian QH270-Lite?
So far, two months and still going strong.

2- I had some dead pixel when i got it and now i have more!!
No visible dead pixels when I received it, and still that way.

3- My screen started flickering or some sort of screen problem ?
None.

Hi guys, I just traded my Dell 3007 (2560x1600) for one of these ( the dell had a stuck pixel and the color temp was too warm for my taste it was set at around 5400k, and I prefer around 6500k )

The guy I got it from imports a few at a time and re-sells them, so I got to take my pick out of 3, so no pixel problems or anything, one had a dead pixel, the other, the brigtness seemed really dim.

My question is since its glossy display ( which I love ) does it have any protective film or anything, or is it an exposed polerizer layer?

The build quality is no where near the dell, the stand sucks, but the panel seems nice, and my GTX580 will have an easier time
pushing a slightly smaller resolution. (my 1.5gig 580 would run into vram issues in modded skyrim ) I will probably get a new stand for it. But its does not put out as much heat as the dell, and weighs tons less, and has a smaller footprint than the dell ( which has its pros and cons )
The IPS seems a little better on the shimian, but nothing special.
the Dell seems to have better colors, but i'm no photo or movie expert, so it does not bother me.

( and imo, the 30" monitors are almost too big, the extra height makes it hard to view small detailed items on both the top and bottom of the screen at the same time. )

I've only used it for an hour or so, but no problems, and the guy I got it from had reported no problems.

So some people think i'm crazy for trading a $1400 (when it was new) monitor for a $300 one, but I absolutely can not stand stuck/dead pixels, so I think its an even trade.
post #2060 of 3508
I think ive finally narrowed down my choices, but theres one thing im not sure of. Is it true that the qh270-IPSI has an anti-glare coating and the IPSB has a glossy screen? I would rather prefer to have the glossy screen, but I know that the IPSI is a new model.
