Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 217

post #2161 of 3508
My QH-270 Lite (perfect pixel) version arrived yesterday. Bought it from Red-Cap. There wasn't any bubble wrap outside and inside the box, it only had Styrofoam around the monitor (no damage). I did not notice any dead pixels but I do have slight bleeding on the monitor. But it doesn't bother me as long as I am not using a black background wallpaper. Only thing annoying to me is the brightness. Hope someone have a solution to our monitors that show us how to calibrate the colors nicely. thumb.gif

You can turn the brightness down with the buttons on the back. If you hold one in it will go to it's limit. I counted 30 button presses for the full range from "won't go darker" to "won't go brighter."

Got my Qh270-IPSI from bigclothcraft today. He said he checked it, but I'm having quality issues with mine. There are some minor dead pixels and dust here and there that don't bother me, but I have 2 things that really do bother me. 1) There is a really big piece of dust right in the middle of the screen. That kills it for me. There's no way I can have a monitor with that, I'm too OCD mad.gif.
2) There is a strip of scattered stuck pixels on the right side of the monitor, going top to bottom. There must be 100+ of them.

I sent him a message and videos of the problem. Just waiting to see what he can do. Aside from those two things, I really do like the monitor.

Could you show us the video or maybe some pictures?

Let us know how he takes care of this, I'm still waiting for my IPSI to ship from him.

Here are the videos. I was in a rush last night and the quality isn't great, but you get the idea.

As I posted a couple of days ago, I received my QH270-IPSBS and am liking it. With the exception of one dead pixel it is working great.

I bought a 10 foot DVI cable that is supposed to be dual link from Amazon. The brand of cable is CL2. Well I am sad to report that the monitor does not work with that cable but works fine with the shorter cable that came with it. Why is it so hard to get a proper DVI cable? I'll be working on an RMA with Amazon later today.

Would someone suggest a working DVI cable available via Prime on Amazon?

Thanks.

Eeesh. That's bad. Sorry to butt in on your club, but I got my Catleap 2703 from the same guy and it's nearly perfect except for this bright spot in the monitor (almost like backlight bleed but a nickel size spot several inches from the side). Those pixels combined with the dust is not acceptable.

IT'S HEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE biggrin.gif I'm just unboxing it now(taking pics along the way, dw) and setting it up. Will report in with pics once I check for bad things(dead pixels, dust, etc)

Also the box clearly says IPSB in several places on the outside. I haven't gotten to look at the actual screen yet to see if it is an I or a B. We'll see!

Edit: Also, from midnight on Tuesday(EST) to my doorstep on Friday at 1pm, that is pretty dang fast! Especially for DHL in my area.



Came nicely packaged



Standard accessories + the universal transformer



Seems like the standard powerbrick, though BCC's description says it comes with a 100-240v power brick hmm....



Pretty glossy screen. IPSI model so tempered glass underneath a none-glossy bezel.



A speck of dust it seems underneath the glass. It is actually pretty huge...At least it is in a mostly inconspicuous area. Undecided if I will open it up to get rid of it or not. Definitely not a dead pixel though. Much too big for that.

Overall a couple of dead pixels(dust maybe?) scattered throughout but all at the sides, center is clean. Not too shabby. Great for the price. Just that large speck right there is a bit disappointing. Maybe I'll fix it if I get unlazy enough. Also some yellow tint along the bottom which I've heard goes away in a few days so not too worried about that. Whites are pretty blue though. Need to find some profiles.

No complications during setup. Just put the stand on, connected the dual DVI cable to one of my 580s, connected the power brick to the monitor, then plugged it in. Away we go.

I was totally willing to accept the fact that the monitor was not going to be perfect, but I didn't expect to be like this. It certainly does have a few unnoticeable dead pixels and dust particles throughout. Actually, I could probably live with the 100 stuck pixels since it's not right in front of me even though its not suppose to be like that. That dust in the middle is the only thing that is driving me crazy. It's 100x worse than a dead pixel. My concern is, why did they send it to me after checking it? Makes me wonder if they even check it at all. No response from bcc yet.
