Do the sellers not respond over weekends? Just curious cause I messaged BCC on Friday about 5pm EST(I think that is about 5am S.Korea time, a friend in Philippines is 12 hours ahead of me exactly and that is pretty close...) and it is now 9am EST on Monday and I still haven't received a peep.

Really want to see if his IPSI are turning back into IPSBs. Tomorrow I pull the trigger finally!

I don't think so. I've read the entire thread and for excessive bleeding like that you can either let the monitor burn in for a few days(this is usually just to fix tint) but it could be possible the panel was over-tightened in that area. All you might have to do is loosen a screw a little bit, but as I don't own one myself and have only read other's experiences, you might want to wait for someone with first hand experience with the problem to help you.

Also, punctuation is your friend! What you've written there looks like you've just said it all without even taking a breath! laughingsmiley.gif

I am using with a macbook pro (2009) via (usb) powered minidisplay port to dual link DVI adapter...

There are people that have issues with the sleep mode on their computer and the Shimians. I could only speculate that it's probably caused by certain hardware/software configurations. I realize that's not too helpful, but if the monitor is working fine other than having to reset the mini-display connection on wake-up, that maybe just have to be an acceptable trade-off for the phenomenal deal we get on these monitors.

I only replied because I see that no one else did to your question. However, perhaps someone with a similar configuration and issue may be able to respond.

One question. Can you please post what brand, and model if applicable, of the mini-display port to dual link DVI you are using?

ty for your reply sir this is relieving to know that back light bleeding has no effect on monitor life, and sorry for my bad English as you can guess English is not my first language...

Overclocked it? Can you explain? I didn't know the Shimians were overclockable.

Thanks for replying! The adapter i was Accell B087B-007B DisplayPort/Mini DisplayPort to DVI-D Dual-Link Adapter with 3D Support. I think the adapter was the problem. I have since bought the 'official' Apple adapter and the problem seems to have gone (or at least it is way way less frequent).

I guess I'm one of the unlucky ones! Mine arrived today QH270-Lite (QH270-IPSBS), and doesnt want to show a picture.

The backlight comes on, and brightness can be adjusted.

The power light flashes blue until windows has started, then goes solid blue - but nothing is shown.

Windows detects its as Digital with a 2560x1440 resolution - so there is some communication going on between card and screen.

I've tested 2 cables, and 2 video cards - XFX R7970 Black edition, and my old 6970.

Reading through (some) of this thread, it seems the monitors can be picky with cables? Have ordered a few to test out.

Have many people with apparantly dead screens been able to resolve it with a different cable, or do I need to investigate shipping it back for a replacement?

I ordered from ta_planet, and went for the pixel-checked option, and the note inside the box says it was tested... Just what was tested I'm not sure on =/

Make sure you are using a dual DVI cable and connecting to the dual DVI port on your card. I heard some ATi video cards(6k series?) have a little physical switch on the card(not the backplate) you have to toggle to enable it. If it was connecting via single-link your computer would still detect it but nothing would show up because it isn't getting enough bandwidth. I'd check that first of all.
