just spend about an hour using the monitor. not a single dead pixel was seen that day. can't also see the yellow tint either. awesome purchase.

I've been trying to resist buying one of these for a few weeks but I just caved. I just bought the tempered glass model from green-sum. I'll post before and after pics of my setup when I get it.

Guys please help me.

I have my Shimian now for like a month and something just happened that never happened until now.

I booted the computer, turned the monitor on (I do it more often in this order), and the monitor was outputting really strange horizontal lines, moving really fast across the screen. So bad that I couldnt see anything else, except the moving lines.
I checked the cables and the power brick and nothing changed.

I turned the monitor off and on again, and everything works fine again!

However, I lost my 'trust' a bit. I never saw anything like this before, so I am scared something is wrong.

What could have caused this?

I finally found what caused the problem I was having. Logic board has one "chip" burned. I uploaded some pics for anyone curious. Now if I could get my hands on a spare logic board...

Dropbox gallery

E: Sixth pic is where the burned chip shows clearest.

Can you give us tips on how you opened it? (As an addition to what has been written on the 3rd page)
I want to know if I can re-adjust the LEDs on the back of the panel << if that can be done

WOOOT !!!
Mine is here finally !! wheee.gif
I hooked it up and it works great , zero dead pixels but , yes there is a but , it seems to have a little yellow - isch tint on the lower right part of the screen not too much though , it's only noticeable with white background and when you search for it.
Colors on the other hand are WAY !! bigeyedsmiley.png better than on my ViewSonic 27 no question about that , not to mention 2540x1440 is sweet thumb.gif
Overall very happy smile.gif
Stand by for pics.

EDIT:
After initial moans about seller not posting it for 4 days when he posted it it was a blast.
He posted it on 8Th and i got it today 10Th !! TWO days half across the world !! that's one fast shipping IMO
EDIT 2
I asked the seller to mark it as a gift and value at $200 and i didn't pay any duty .... just FYI.

This is what was in the box and i want to add here that box was wrapped in couple layers of additional bubble wrap.

That's the power brick and the adapter that came with it , it fits UK , EU and US power sockets.

Now the bad stuff ......

2012-05-10204816.jpg

Like i said a yellowisch tint on the lower right side but i must note that picture actually makes it look worse than it looks in person.
Honestly you won't notice that in normal use unless on clear white background and you're looking for it
Overall really really happy with this monitor so far and i can honestly recommend the seller (bigclothcraft)..

EDIT:
I just checked the adapter and it will work in following countries:
EUROPE/UK/SPAIN
USA/JAPAN/CHINA/AUST/THAILAND
It also has surge protection.

Not much. As noted on 3rd page, I took the black bezel off first. I pulled the bezel with my fingertips slightly and used a box cutter (plastic exterior for to minimize damage to panel in case of impact) and cut the glue/tape. There are clips in the way ever so often, so I gently worked my way around the bezel with the box cutter.

White bezel underneath is connected to the casing with screws and clips. Tip for disconnecting the clips is to push the bezel from outside in. Start with the center of each side and after that work with the corners.

On the 3rd page, the fourth picture shows two screws to unscrew. I didn't have to unscrew them to take the panel off. Just remember to lift the panel just so you can put your hand in there and disconnect the backlight cable and LVDS cable. After that you are good to go.

Is going from 1600p to 1440p very noticeable? It looks like a hell of a lot cheaper sell my 30" Dell and get 3 27' Shimians rather than trying to procure 2 more Dell 3007's. Opinions please? Thanks

thats what i did :d im selling my dell 3011 on ebay right now
