Going to post pics if I remember.
Congrats, glad everything looks good for you so far! Tell bcc to respond to my messages already thumb.gif Any Buzzzzzz?

Darn.. After working OK for 1 and half months, my Shimian IPSI is having some major problems.
After being on for few minutes, it will quickly turn black (with the backlight and blue light still on, indicating that it is still receiving signal from GPU). If I turn it off and turn it back on, it usually comes back but goes black within minutes and, more often, seconds.

ANyone have this issue (and hopefully resolved it?)

I sent a message to bigclothcraft.

Ive had issues upon turning on it shows a lot of lines of different colors and only way to fix it is by turning on and off, hopefully it doesnt end up happening as much as yours though, seller told me its normal for my situation which i think is a lie, but yours seems worse. I dont even know if these come with warranty at least on page i bought mine there was no mention of it. Im trying to get a partial refund but this is scaring me into thinking this could die on me

Well, I emailed Red-Cap about the BUZZING noise and he referred me to this forum on a post about how to take apart the Shimian and fix it, LOL

This is the exact message from Red-Cap,
Quote:
Dear
sorry for the trouble with the sound
each user feel differently the sound from the monitor so we have got a infomation about that from a forum
it can be fixed by putting epoxy on the two buzzing components
http://www.overclock.net/t/1215866/reviewed-400-2560x1440-ips-no-ag-90hz-achieva-shimian-qh270-and-catleap-q270/2920

for discount , we will sell you at $330 for perfect pixels one

thank you

Sincerely yours
Red-Cap

It's good to see he monitor's these forums. I can't believe he told me $330 for another monitor. I just bought 2 of them for $320 each. Comeon Red-Cap, we can do better, lol. But, I don't think I'm going to be taking apart this monitor ever as....

1. It's Brand New
2. Might break something
3. It's BRAND NEW!!!

So I have asked him to come up with another solution as taking apart this monitor is out of the question. Something that the average person can perform to fix the annoying BUZZZZ. Will see what he says

I have had this same issue. When it goes to sleep it shows a bunch of random lines of color moving everywhere and the only way to stop it is to unplug it. But alas, mine has bigger problems -__-

I don't know if anyone actually read my post before about the problems I was having tongue.gif but bigclothcraft has since responded to my message and he said that the blue light may be a serious problem and has offered me the choice of either a partial refund or an exchange. I think that I am going to go for the exchange and ask him to make sure that the new one does not buzz...

Well, Red-Cap agreed to take my monitor back. He gave me a fedex number and name, so I guess that's enough to send it back? I hope so. But I have to say, the guy seems to be doing OK by me thus far.

He does like to give discounts, though. Offered to give me $50 back to keep it and sell it, I said "no" and he offered $70! biggrin.gif I did the math and realized I'd need $180 to cover likely sale price and shipping cost, so countered with $200, which I guess is more than return shipping rolleyes.gif

I'll update as things develop.

Here's what I got:
We'll see what happens when they actually get my monitors, but so far the response time and the overall ability to comprehend and sympathize with the issues I've been having with the two I ordered has been reasonable. I'm still rather upset about their claims of actually testing the monitors though, because even though the first monitor is understandably flawed, the second one (shown in the video) is pretty unacceptable. There is no problem with my cabling or my video card set up either, as I have run other shimians from this card without a hitch.

Following up with this.

Dreamseller received my monitors
Quote:
Dear methoz07,

Hi methoz07,

We do apologize any inconvenience.
We have received your monitors and have checked.
One of the monitor was defective as you said.
I'm sorry again.
However, couldn't find any scratch on the other monitor.
It was just dust so it comes off after wiped .
Could you please check attached photo?
I need you to scan of your postage receipt.
I hope to hear from you soon.

Warm Regards.

- dream-seller

But since my refund was being delayed, I had to get a little more serious.
Quote:
Dear dream-seller,

Even if you don't agree with me about the condition of the one monitor with the scratch on it, I would still like a refund for both monitors. You now have both of them in your possession and I am now currenty out 600 dollars plus the 180 that was spent on shipping the monitors to you. I want a refund for my full purchase prize regardless. Your return policy is 14-day money back, buyer pays return shipping. I paid the shipping cost to get the monitors to you, now I'd like my refund.

I don't mean to sound rude or anything, it's just very stressful being out that much money for products that aren't even in my possession. Please understand.

- methoz07

After sending that, I woke up this morning with:
Quote:
Dear methoz07,

I am very sorry for the trouble.
Refund will be completed soon, check your account later.

- dream-seller

So, all in all, this was a pretty good resolution to an unfortunate mishap. I'm still out the 180 dollars it cost me to ship the monitors back to dream-seller, but at least I got my original purchase amount back. I'm making this post so people understand the risk involved with buying these monitors, despite the relatively vast amount of success people have had with these, there are still some bad apples like what I had to deal with.

Guys, I'm confused between getting a pixel perfect monitor from red-cap, getting a regular monitor from red-cap or getting the regular achieva shimian from bigclothcraft. All I want is to maximize my chances for getting a less flawed monitor since the price between all three of them is only +- $20 or so.

I got mine from Red Cap last week. Paid the extra $20-30 for perfect pixel. Came with zero dead pixels. Just didnt want to take a chance.
