Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 259

post #2581 of 3508
My experience with red-cap was great, I ordered pixel perfect, he didn't have any in stock and he emailed me saying he will get another batch during the weekend and asked if i wanted to wait or he will charge me less and give me a regular one - i said yes i'll wait, and i got the monitor 5 days later, i was tracking it all along through fedex.

Sounds a lot like the exact same process i went through. He hasn't answered my emails yet even though it's a brand new day in Korea. Waiting some more and then probably opening a claim.

He now answered my email, asking me to report this to FedEx and then keep him updated. I reported it to FedEx and then had to email the pictures of the monitor to a FedEx-related company that handles this kind of stuff.

Still curious as to why this haven't happened to more buyers considering the fragile nature of monitors and the often hectic shipping routes.

Because they are packed really well and the odds of them breaking are fairly small...

Just got a Achieva Shimian QH270-Lite shipped yesterday and got here today. Ordered from Red-cap got the one for $305 doesn't have any dead pixels and the blacklight bleeding isn't too bad so far I am in love with this monitor. Glad I took the gamble and ordered one.

Get mine just now.. Ordered from Ta_planet. Very fast shipping, not a single dead/bright pixel, backlight bleeding isn't even noticeable. Highly recommended ta_planet.

Looks like they pumped the prices up. I bought mine @ 290$

Oh well, here i go again. Ordered a second monitor while waiting for my refund, this time from ta_planet. I was very suprised by how fast he/they shipped it and it says it will arrive next monday. Hopefully it'll be before the weekend though.
I swear i am going to snap if i get another cracked monitor.

Just an update on my experiences with different sellers:

Red-Cap has been excellent. There were some logistical difficulties with shipping the monitor back, but he's been very helpful throughout.

TA-Planet, on the other hand, has been bad. I ordered a matte FIRST FY-something, and it has pixel walk, where the electronics don't give the correct voltages to the screen. So I have a faint grid pattern over all flat colors, which I consider to be wildly defective. TA-Planet, however, has been totally resistant to either sending a new circuit board, or a return, so I am likely going to have to file a dispute.

Just goes to show you... rolleyes.gif
