Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 226

post #2251 of 3508
mltno, you can always try to shoot dhsummer an offer on this listing... since it has the "make offer" button

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ACHIEVA-Shimian-QH270-Lite-Quad-HD-FREE-Voltage-Monitor-2560x1440-16-9-D-Sub-NEW-/280928105274?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item41689eb33a

Also there is absolutely no difference between the two monitors you posted. They are both the Shimian QH270 lite, they have gone as low as $279.90 shipped from dhsummer earlier this month (if you check the purchase history of your first link)

The QH270 lite is the 'basic' version, no speakers, no tempered glass, etc, but seems to be the best bang for the buck that most people get.

Ambient backlight using Boblight
I think boblight is the most user friendly program (processing or java) but I do not know how to sketch in the adurino uno - keeping the same layout in the protoshield with the uln2003A and the 9,10,11 pins of the Uno . Can someone help?

I found this program http://www.beeles-place.be/?p=117
which is the easiest of all to use but the boblight allows you to pick what part of the screen you get your color from which would be neat since I just want to use the center.

After 28 days of Achieva Shimian ownership I am still happy with the purchase and have had no problems with the monitor so far. I just decided to purchase the 3 yr. SquareTrade warranty (you can get it up to 30 days after your eBay purchase) for peace of mind. However, in my past posting, you can read I've had conflicting conversations with their representatives. The latest three ST reps said it definately would be covered under their warranty - so I went with it.

I am still looking for an answer to the question I previously posted. I purchased a QH270-lite and on the back of the monitor it lists the model as QH270-IPSB and then in another place as QH270-IPSB(B).

I just read on the eBay ad. for ta_planet that QH270-IPSBS = no tempered glass model.
QH270-IPSB white = tempered glass model, outside glass like apple monitor.

But, my monitor has no tempered glass, it has white edges and a black back. Can someone please clarrify this seemingly model number discrepency.
post #2254 of 3508
You probably have the IPSBS. The IPSBS is the LITE version PLUS speakers. It does not have tempered glass and is not white (although it has white piping.)

An additional confirmation is that on the back you have brightness controls and also volume controls.

Be warned, though. Even after you clear up the problem and you get your monitor it is very likely you will still receive a notice a month or so later demanding you pay or they will take action. FedEx is really annoying to deal with unfortunately.

I called FedEx and rambled on about how America has a free trade agreement and that an error might of occurred when labeling what was actually being shipped. They verified that it was indeed marked as a LED monitor and that the seller covered the shipping, but I need to cover the customs/duties fee for stuff coming into the USA.

I then rambled some more asking if it was possible if I contacted the seller and if he could take care of the duties fee. Mind you, I bought this from Dream-Seller and he has responded to my questions in the past and told me to contact him if anything went wrong. I sent a message to Dream-seller yesterday, but still no response.

However, FedEx said that they will do a customer service for me and absolve the $20.30 USD fee for customs/duties import.

******* WEIRD.

My plan is to use a program called lightpack on the PC end and adalight code on my arduino. Lightpack recently added support for arduinos running adalight, you can google them both to see what I mean.

Only issue is, adalight is meant to be used with individually addressable RGB LED strips, not the cheap "dumb" RGB strips on ebay. So it is not usable with the setups previously mentioned in this thread and on that original blog post.

However, I like the software because it works for some games as well, and I already bought my "dumb" RGB strips. So I'm trying to modify the adalight code so it can work with dumb RGB strips.

Still waiting for a few final pieces to come in the mail from china, I'll let you know if it works.


Also still waiting for my damn IPSI to ship from BCC. Hopefully tonight.


And sounds like Fedex knows it was wrong, but just doesnt want to admit it, haha.
