if you do that i guarantee you bad shi* will happen. he bought something it broke,hes in charge for sending it back. at which point they should refund him his full $300+ or whatever he paid.
people need to start realizing that this is a 300$ + 100$ (return shipping if it breaks) total $400 monitor.

My Citibank Visa card has similar benefits, although theyre not as robust and simple as my AMEX card. Which is why I brought this up, none of us knows what he has...

Also,
Its not fraud depending on what the CC outlines their policies to be.
In my eyes his monitor is definitely defective.. so I dont see how this would be fraud.

And saying this is really a $400 monitor because you should expect to pay return shipping is a pretty bold and inaccurate statement in my opinion.
Yea you should be prepared to have to ship it back. But I know I personally picked a seller that said they refund return shipping if a defect is found (bigclothcraft).

I dont know if you're just extremely passionate or what, but calm down. This started with me offering a small suggestion to jamdox.

So I got my [QH270-IPSBS] Achieva ShiMian 27" LED Quad HD DVI 2560x1440 16:9 Wide PC Monitor from TA_Planet in yesterday. Here a quick product and service overview.

Shipping: I ordered it Sunday night, it shipped Monday, I received it in the states on Tuesday. Crazy fast international shipping.

Packaging: Mine was not bubble wrapped. It came in a standard monitor box with styrofoam on either side. I am really surprised that it arrived in tact having come as far as it did with Fed-Ex but no visible damage what so ever to the box or contents.

First Impression: First off I think the monitor looks great. It is a bit bigger and a lot heavier than the 27" Hanns-G that I am replacing. Really the only thing that felt "cheap" on it was the power input to the monitor but it holds firm. Also the "US, Canada buyer will receive welltronics free voltage adapter + US plug adapter" is a joke, but I have a few extra power cables lying around so I just used one of those.

Quality: The first thing I did was run a dead pixel test. 0 dead/stuck pixels. Since I was expecting at least a few this pleasantly surprised me. Also there is no noticeable back light bleeding. On a black screen you can definitely tell that it is on and there is a back light but no more than any other monitor/TV out there. The color quality is great and I really like that there is no anti glare coating on the screen. It seems to make the picture crisper. I can definitely tell a difference between this and my previous 2 LED monitors (27" Hanns-G and 24" Samsung Syncmaster). I didn't even bother with the speakers so I cant comment on those but all built in speakers on monitors suck.

Now the only game that I have ran on it so far is Black Ops 2 and it looked great. I'm rocking an HD 6970 and I was still running at 60fps (w/vsync) with everything maxed. I'm gonna load up Skyrim and BF3 when I get home today to see what fps I'm running at. I'm almost certain I'll have to upgrade to get the FPS that I want so I guess I'll be selling my 6970 w/fullcover EK block and pick up a 7970 or the like.

All in all I'm very happy with my product. Sure you don't get the peace of mind that you would buying from some company like Dell but for the price I don't see how anyone can complain. I knew going in that there were risks buying a monitor from Korea but made the decision to take those risks and thank god it payed off.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting to purchase a high res IPS monitor but not wanting to spend in upwards of $1,000.

Also if this helped please +rep so I can post on the classified forums!biggrin.gif

Hey guys,

found a video on youtube that exactly shows my problem. You can watch it here. As I said, when I reconnect the power adapter the rainbow test screen is gone and the monitor works flawlessly. But every time it goes off and on again (no matter if power button or standby), the test screen is back again and I have to reconnect the power adapter. Do you think the monitor or the power adapter is faulty?

Sorry for my bad english, it's not my native language wink.gif

I know my Amex card gives me like 60 or 90 days of protection for things I buy using the card. Not sure on exact policies for Amex or any other card though. Give your CC company a call, worth a try. Especially since return shipping is like what... at least $100?

It's listed on the TERMS once you buy the product and its pretty clear and straight forward "buyer pays return shipping"
as for the dead monitor sorry that it happened. mine came in fine but i realize not everyone is lucky.
file a claim and trust the system

Yeah, I wish I'd looked at the terms of my glorious "buyer protections" a bit harder doh.gif

Turns out ebay in fact doesn't cover return shipping, which is BS, and it also turns out my AMEX (which I do have) only covers the first $300, and doesn't cover shipping either. doh.gifdoh.gifdoh.gif Maybe it's better for folks who don't have the Costco card...?

I realize some folks have had fine experiences with TA Planet, but this is seriously mind-boggling BS. He basically is refusing to honor his agreement because he can't get a warranty service for it from the manufacturer. Now I'm either going to have to spend $120 sending this crap back to 'rea, lose $75 going through AMEX, spend $X to get new parts for it, or just deal mad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

I kind of want to spend the money to ship it back, just so the illegitimate offspring of a rabid horse and a sewer pipe known as Kinam of TA Planet doesn't get to keep my money...

AMEX is pretty good with customer service, could try giving them a call to see if they'd cover your return shipping back to Korea. Then you can get your refund from TA_Planet and save on return shipping.
Worth a shot, especially if you've been an AMEX customer in good standing for a while.

Really terrible situation to be in though, cant imagine how frustrated you are ):

This has happened to me twice since I got my monitor. A simple off and on does the trick for me.

Hello,

I bought a monitor from you recently ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-IPSI 27" LED 2560x1440 S-IPS . I have ran it from a GTX480 and a GTX680 and both these graphic cards are equipped with outputs and are compatible with the monitor. However, when I plug the monitor in and turn it on the light changes from red to blue, stays blue for 2-3 seconds and then changes to flashing blue. During this time the monitor remains black and no images are displayed. I have tried 2 dual-link DVI cables and 2 graphic cards with the same results.

I attached a 'test' monitor to the system which gave me access to my desktop display and went into graphic card settings and I saw that the graphics card was recognising the Achieva Shimian monitor, it is running at the correct resolution and at 60MHz. I checked that the graphic card was running a dual link DVI setting and the Achieva Shimian monitor is still not functioning as expected.

Is there any known fault with this monitor and if so is there anything I can do to fix the problem?

Any help would be great
post #2670 of 3508
Not sure if this has been brought up recently, but when I bought my monitor from TA_PLANET, I checked with Square Trade, and fully disclosed the ebay item # and the fact it comes from Korea, and the rep there assured me that Square Trade warranty would cover it. So, if mine ever breaks, I expect to just get my purchase price back. I bought a 3-year ST LCD warranty for $50. Since the monitor does not have a manufacturer 1 year warranty, my ST warranty is only 2 years (as the 1st year of ST is actually the manufacturer warranty).

I've got it in an email (in writing) and I bought it. So, for 2 years I'm covered. smile.gif
