I wish it was 16:10 ratio (2560x1600) like the older Dell Ultrasharps, but hell I'm satisfied with 16:9 and I guess it does look better for movies (less of the letterbox effect)

16:9 is better than 16:10.

That example is inaccurate because it doesnt keep the diagonal size consistent.

A 27" monitor at 16:10 would be less wide, but it would also be slightly taller, which that example doesnt demonstrate.

That graphic is misleading depending on the game. In some games at 16:10 you actually get more screen top and bottom than at 16:9. In others such as diablo3 they do work as you describe, where you lose some screen on the sides. In that case, you just play in 16:9 mode and have a black bar top and bottom and nothing is lost.

I like my 1920x1200 screen much more than my 1920x1080, however since getting a Shimian at 2560x1440 I really like the 16x9 aspect, since it finally has enough pixels to do what I want. Basically, it can do the job of a dual-monitor setup of low res screens on a single screen.

On the 1920x1080 I always felt like there weren't enough vertical pixels, but not so at 2560x1440.

So I've had to escalate to eBay buyer protection. Except they apparently don't cover return shipping.
I am SO mad right now. I strongly recommend to NOT buy Korean monitors!
Especially not from TA-Planet.

Sorry to hear that you have problems!

What is 'pixel walk' though? How does it manifest itself , I've never heard of it before!

Is it that bad that you can't use the monitor?

It's useable, but annoying. It's a problem with the electronics which causes areas of light color to have lines and patterns on them. It's also hard to photograph, so it's worse than it looks in the picture:



With the contrast enhanced:



So it's useable, but fricking annoying. These lines are clearly visible at 2 feet, and cover any light-colored background. Farther away, and they make the screen look grainy. I also think they make other colors and videos look grainy too, but that's harder to prove.

And it is apparently caused by the mis-calibration of the common electrode voltage. It's even possible that a new brick would fix it, and lord knows I asked TA Planet for a new circuit board and power brick numerous times.

But there's a lot of these monitors with electronics issues, such as ULTIMATE BUZZ. Frankly, these sellers should be getting it for selling them. God forbid they'd spend an extra $5 making sure the electronics aren't crap wth.gif

Kind of sad, actually. The panel itself is pretty good, with some backlight bleed in the lower right corner but not much else.

Thinking of getting one of these, but first does anyone know if there's a video capture card capable of capturing 1440p?

That would also depend on the resolution limit.

Quick update for those having the blank screen issue (Everything lights up but nothing shows on the screen) I can confirm that removing the framework and just lightly pushing on the cabling to reset them will fix the issue.

Going to stress test the screen for a couple of days to see if it works fine.


EDIT: Died on me after 10 mins instead of 10 seconds.... Time to annihilate dream-seller.

I'm interested in getting one of the Korean monitors and leaning toward the Achieva models, but have a couple questions.

I'd like to get one with the tempered glass (the IPSB model I think) because I like the look with the glass flush all the way across the monitor. Are there any downsides to the tempered glass?

Also, is there a preferred seller for these? The ebay seller green-sum seems popular they don't seem to sell the tempered glass models.
