Guys I am no longer seeing anymore Achieva monitors selling by bigclothcraft for $300 like most of you paid. I'm feeling a little discomfort about choosing other sellers especially red-cap with his recent activity i am reading about.

Well, I ordered 2 Shimian Perfect Pixel's from Red-Cap for a Best Offer for $320 and received it in about 6 days flat to San Antonio, Texas. Customs in Alaska took 2 days, which is just sad! They did come with a cheap USA plug adapter to slide over the korean plug.



I have these hooked up to a ATI Radeon 5870 Eyefinity 6 Edition with 6 mini displayports. Was dissapointed when I first hooked them up via my active miniDP to DVI dongles, the monitors did not turn on. I couldn't even turn on just one monitor hooked directly into the back of my motherboard. My heart was panicking at 160BPM, and I was scared I got a dud, and immediately ordered some different adapters just to make sure. Had to order these EXPENSIVE $87 mini display to DVI adapters from Amazon to get them to work at full resolution, which worked perfectly.

On a side note, if I knew I had to order these expensive adapters in advance, I might have just ordered the Auria EQ276W from Microcenter, although I not 100% sure I would have, as I truly did want PERFECT PIXEL displays, and would pay the extra as I don't think I could handle a bad pixel on my screen. I might have undiagnosed OCD, but I wasn't going to take the chance on the Auria.

Everything works fine and both monitors truly are PERFECT PIXEL as well as ZERO BACK-LIGHT BLEED.

I do have a faint buzzing sound coming from one monitor though, when any application is maximized on that monitor. I'm sure it has nothing to do with Red-Cap himself though. Not sure why that is though, but it is a minor annoyance. I have emailed Red-Cap to ask him how to fix this issue, and also about getting one more perfect pixel for $300. Finger crossed

I eventually plan on having 6 of these bad boys hooked up in extended mode. Eyefinity is cool, but I dont like applications being broken or split up onto different monitor's when maximized, which is tacky at best.

On another side note, if you are using more than one of these monitors, "Actual Multiple Monitors" is the software to get. It's the most amazing software ever made for multiple monitor setups. Moving windows around and make them snap side by side and what not are the easiest things ever.

One thing I have noticed, clicking this image below creates a very noticeable buzzing sound and making it full-screen on one of my Shimian's makes a SUPER LOUD BUZZING sound

CLICK THIS IMAGE AND MAKE FULL-SCREEN for SUPER LOUD BUZZING SOUND - if your monitor has the same problem mine does


Only one of my monitors makes this sound, and I'm not sure why that is. But I don't have a good feeling about it. When I display the image on my other monitor there is no sound whatsoever. It's dead silent. So this leads me to believe on monitor is normal and the other monitor is not.

Just wondering how many people have this problem with their Shimian?

Here is the image to download to make full screen on the Shimian which makes monitor go from SUPER BUZZ to ULTIMATE BUZZ

So the sound is like Buzzzzz---> SUPER BUZZZZ (Image Above)---> ULTIMATE BUZZZZZZZ (Downloaded Image attachment below made fullscreen)

Make this attachment FULL-SCREEN on ALL your Shimian monitor's to check for the ULTIMATE BUZZZZZZZ noise

My monitor also buzes!! Is it dangerous!?!??!

By the way, thanks every one for answering my latest questions (Where to get a 2560 res movie, and nice looking 2560 res wallpapers!!)

Cheers!!

Anyone know if this will be compatible with the premade holes on the back of the Achieva ? I am guessing they are just standard VESA holes, I bought the monitor from bigclothcraft.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-Dell-E-FPM-Monitor-Stand-for-E-Series-Latitude-Precision-VESA-Mount-RM361-/380441073057?pt=US_Monitor_Mounts_Stands&hash=item58940e15a1

any other recommended stands on ebay ? Looking for something $20-35

Welcome to the Achieva Shimian ULTIMATE BUZZZZZZZ Club!!!

Honestly though, I have to do something about this, or it will be on my conscious all the time. It's equivalent to a dead pixel right in the middle of the screen, no matter how hard you try to ignore it, it's still there.

I think I might have to do the epoxy fix, by taking apart my monitor, but I'm going to try to find a simpler, easier solution for us first.
