That is FANTASTIC to hear! Thank you for your reply, greatly appreciate it! I'm gonna grab three of these babies and mount 'em on LX arms.

Hey guys, first post on these forums biggrin.gif

So I read through about.. 100 pages of this thread already.
Still really confused as to whether or not I want to spend money on these monitors.
Originally wanted a IPSI model, but dust fears have me leaning towards the LITE model.

On other forums and I think even here, I read about some people having issues with this monitor waking up from sleep?
That would be an issue for me, as I typically put my desktop to sleep rather than leave it on or shut it down completely.
Would I have to get used to shutting my monitor off before I sleep the desktop? (I would just have to map the desktop power button to sleep, should be no big deal).

I dont plan on using this monitor for anything but my desktop. I'm currently running an ASUS GTX560 DC-I (not II) with 1GB GDDR3.
My card should be enough to run this monitor at full rest in games with med graphics right?
Currently the bottle neck is probably the rest of my PC. Built this 7+ years ago, and only replaced the GPU last year cause the old one died.
Running C2D 2ghz with 4GB DDR2 haha. Planning to replace all this with Core i5-3570K and 16GB DDR3 1600 soon as well.

I dont mind that its a bare bones monitor with no OSD, extra connections, usb ports, etc. I just want it to work on a daily basis.

Also worried about reports of the monitor PCB burning up due to improper power bricks...
Planning to buy Perfect Pixel QH270-LITE from Redcap, comes with free 110-240v 5A 24W brick.

Opinions?

Panda, go for the lite model. You wont regret it.

I'm using two right now and they are great thumb.gif

I've had mine for about 3 months now and haven't had any problems with the power bricks, not saying they don't get a tad warm.

They both also enter sleep mode just fine when there is no active source.

I got mine from green_sum but everyone's experiences with Redcap seem to be good.

I second this with a good word in for red-cap as I have ordered 2 from them. Seller was very responsive to messages sent through ebay message system. Both are Lites with no noticeable issues.

Got my ShimmyShammy with tempered glass from Green-sum yesterday and it is fantastic. I was able to overclock it to 67hz and really love the glossy finish of the tempered glass. I mounted it up on my Ergotec 5x1 mount next to my Asus 144hz 1080p display...so I have the best of both worlds directly next to each other....which is a good and bad thing as each monitor highlights the best and worst of the other monitor lol

What's the difference between the lite and normal version of the QH270 and what is tempered glass?

Whoa, is that the IPSB model? I thought sellers just ship the IPSI model now, even though their listings may still say IPSB.
I want the IPSB for the edge to edge glass D:

Any dust issues?

----
Saffah and p0ll, thanks for the input. Glad to hear the monitor has no issues with sleeping lol.
Will probably pick this up soon. Its tempting considering how fast the shipping is, for redcap it says it could be here by tuesday :O!

Trying to decide whether I should upgrade my PC first or get the new monitor first.

EDIT: Also starting to consider the Dell 27" S-Series. 1080p is a crap resolution to have on a 27" monitor, but it would be less taxing on my hardware... Hard to decide.
The ONLY reason I want 1440p is for multitasking to be honest.. I dont think the lower pixel density of 1080p will bother me, but I feel I wont be able to fit as much on the screen at once.

After reading the threads about the Korean IPS monitors for the last four months I made my purchase!

Just a few minutes ago I ordered the QH270-IPSBS. It was $10 less expensive then the QH270-LITE, from the seller I've watching for a while now. It is still the weekend there but I hope by this time tomorrow I may know a little more about my order (it is 9:09AM Sunday in Seoul currently).

Now to research a decent DVI cable that is about six feet long.
