Well I have taken the leap and ordered mine, the IPSBS model with speakers and hdmi and d-sub connections but no glass
I ordered from ta_planet on ebay on 2 days ago and using the racking number it is currently in Paris, shame its a bank holiday here on monday so will have to wait an extra day... mad.gif
But i have to say i am very happy with the service from ta_planet upto this point.
I will post pics and a full review.

Do you mean the IPSMS model? IPSBS only has speakers, no HDMI.

Yeah my bad. It IS the IPSBS so speakers but no HDMI. Its been a week of lots of model numbers and specs on monitors.
I was thinking about getting the IPSMS butwhen i thought about it i wont be connecting anything but my pc so didnt bother.

Edit: Tracking now shows it has left Paris so next stop i would think will be london biggrin.gif

I'm also from London! But unfortunately I'm a student so I don't really have money and time for this as I have exams and this years student loans and grants have all come through so I shouldn't be spending anymore of it... That won't stop me though! Not sure which to go for though..

So I got my Shimian today. Looks awesome right out of the box which is great because right now it is all that it is good for. I have tried it on my 8800GTS and my 6800GS cards, without luck. On the 8800GTS the light turns blue and I see the backlight, and Windows recognizes the monitor, but no video on it. I've put on the latest Nvidia drivers. I had a spare 6800GS so I tried that out, it just blinks blue when connected to it so I assume it is not compatible. I could have sworn I have read people used the 8800GTS with this without issue. I have even rebooted with only the Shimian attached to it without luck. I have used the included DVI cable and also a dual-link DVI I have been using from Monoprice for some time (although not on a dual link monitor).

Any suggestions on troubleshooting?

If it comes to getting a new card I am prepared to do that. Usually I prefer to stick with Nvidia because I've had a lot of bad luck with ATI/AMD. I don't game at all but will be running 3 monitors (27"/24"/22") and plan to probably use my spare 6800GS as a secondary card for one of the monitors. Price-wise I'm a cheapskate and couldn't imagine spending over $160 for this card, preferably under or in the $80-100 range. Would love to find something on a great deal but I'm kind of in a crunch. Any suggestions here for a new card option?

Thanks a ton for any input you can provide.

The Achieva IPSB (w/Glass) is only $318 from greensum now! I wonder how cheap these will get.. I wonder if the IPSMDP model will ever increase in stock and drop in price - I can't even find them on eBay.

I was in the market for a new monitor and came into this thread a while ago and recently got my Achieva. I can't notice any dead pixels but I didn't actively look for any either. Only problem i can see is a little back-light bleeding from 3 of the 4 corners if I'm viewing something dark in a dark room. It could be that I'm blind and missed a few defects, but ignorance is bliss i suppose.

Thanks to all those who posted useful information in the thread.

Is there any way to overclock the Shimian? Mine shows 60Hz in nVidia Control Panel. I'd like to be able to see if it can go any higher at all.
