Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 223

post #2221 of 3508
Just registered to thank all you guys for the mountain of information. I ordered a QH270-IPSBS model at the beginning of the month from ta_planet. He is a great seller IMO, i got the non-perfect pixel version at $299 shipped and there was a note in the box that he had tested it and was ok. There were no dead or stuck pixels at all. It looks like the price has gone up on most of his items, the IPSBS is now $315 but it isn't marked as pre-order.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sale-QH270-IPSBS-27-Monitor-5W-Speaker-advanced-model-than-QH270-Lite-/320882265870?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4ab612cf0e

It came with a "US" plug adapter, but it didn't have a ground, so I just used my own spare monitor cable (as suggested by many users in this thread) into the power supply and did not use his cable or adapter. Works perfectly. It also came with an audio cable and a dual-link DVI cable. Cable (and monitor) works perfectly with a GeForce 210 (LOL!) even though this is not listed as supported in ta_planet's literature, I can tell you it works. The IPSBS model has speakers, which sound pretty decent for monitor speakers, even have a bit of bass. This monitor is being used for photo editing, not gaming (hence the video card), so sound is not as important as desktop real estate based on the size of the desk where this is being used.

For full disclosure's sake, when opening to certain programs, the monitor tends to exibit a quiet electronic buzz. For example if email is open, no buzz, but if Lightroom is open with a gaudy amount of thumbnails, it seems to buzz. I see this is a known issue and there is a fix, but it requires opening the monitor and I'm not comfortable there. This is definitely something that can be lived with vs the price and the image quality. Also it sleeps and comes out of sleep perfectly (which is good, because the computer it is attached to, is always on, and is in sleep mode often...)

Again, thanks to you all for sharing your knowledge, I hope my feedback can help someone as well - and best of luck to those just now getting into the Korean IPS monitor game! thumb.gif

Hi Guys

I plan to buy Yamakasi 27" monitor or other cheap Korean monitor. I have a requirement for a light anti glare coating so I wanted to go through all the models they produce and find the right one. However I cannot find such information, are there any official websites of those producers?

The common one - Yamakasi Catleap QH270 has glossy screen. What I want is a panel with light anti-glare coating like the one used in the new Dell UltraSharp U2713HM or Samsung S27A850D. I need the monitor solely for coding and viewing black text on a white background. Any suggestion?

Thanks!

Why would you buy an IPS monitor for strictly black and white use?

Hi guys, I have read through most of these pages and finally decided to order this monitor.
I have an older computer which I might replace in the not so distant future, and I would like to be able to use this monitor for some other devices.
If I understand correctly QH270-IPSMS model should work with Apple TV, Wii and other HDMI supported computers, but only at 1080?

I have trouble understanding the difference between these 3 listings from the same seller:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/QH270-IPSMS-Achieva-ShiMian-HDMI-D-sub-DVI-Monitor-27-LED-QHD-2560x1440-16-9-/320876490139?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item4ab5baad9b

http://www.ebay.com/itm/QH270-IPSMS-Achieva-ShiMian-HDMI-DVI-D-Sub-27-LG-LED-2560x1440-Dual-Monitor-/230766957925?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item35bac85565

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Pixel-QH270-IPSMS-ShiMian-27-Monitor-HDMI-D-sub-DVI-Macbook-Pro-Sub-/221118001535?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item337ba8f17f

With shipping, the prices are very simmilar, what are the differences, which would you choose?
Thank you for your help.

What alternative can you suggest me? I thought IPS/PLS is a must for reading small font on a white background on 27" monitor (2560x1440). Thanks in advance.

I just think it is like driving a Ferrari in a school zone. It does probably reduce eye strain though. I have the lite model without the extra tempered glass and it is very reflective.

For the money it will be hard to beat these monitors. They are all glossy as far as I know though.

Hey!

You could try this one that is much better:

http://learn.adafruit.com/adalight-diy-ambient-tv-lighting

You can buy now the "pixels" and the arduino in ebay, since they are a lot cheaper, and adafruit also have a helping forum where you can ask.

I made it for my old Samsung 226BW and it worked like a charm, now i should change my lights since the new monitor is a lot bigger, and make some changes in the program as well to fit the new resolution

Cheers!!

I assume that having white background on a glossy screen will produce less reflection then colored background am I right? Is the reflection in such case a big distracting factor for reading a text?

Just a heads up I bought from red-cap a couple of weeks back and the monitor was defective and he has been taking a long time to answer emails or offer any type of resolution. I have escalated it with ebay and hope I can get something resolved. He seemed to be very reputable at the time I bought, however ever since I have tried contacting him he has been almost non existent in replying to anything.
