Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 272

I'm sure you will find thousands of these monitors sold all over the world that have no problems whatsoever!

While I sympathize if you have a dodgy one, it's just not true to say they are 'all crap' and more QC is needed.

Update to my rainbow testscreen issue:

I read the post about the ribbon cable and so did red-cap (at least it seems like he did). So he told me to check loose cables inside the monitor. Sadly, there weren't any loose cables which could have been the source of the issue. The PCBs looked good and also did the soldering. I double checked every connection, but it didn't fix it.

Now he will send me a new PCB. I really hope that will fix it, because the panel itself is flawless. I still wonder if it also could be a problem with the power connector, because reconnecting it solves it every time. Though I checked it with a multimeter and it puts out 23,9V DC correctly. Dunno,

All crap is inaccurate. Of course, I said "in general, the internals of these monitors are crap." More QC is needed because they clearly have a high defect rate. They advertise A- panels, but say nothing about the other components, so I consider these monitors to be outside of spec. Frankly, I don't understand why these folks with BUZZ, rainbows, weird on/off behaviors, etc, put up with it.

Anyway, I handed it over to AMEX, who told me to not worry about it, they'll handle everyting. We'll see what that means, I've never done anything like this before. Buy a classmate of mine said "Amex can get anything off, it's why they charge such high fees." I'm like, "COOL!" thumb.gif

Uh...

This poll doesn't show a "very high" defect rate.

TBH the failure rates on these things isn't that high. Is it higher then normal brands? Yes. Is it worrying bad? No.

more space to display webpages or documents. IMHO 16:10 > 16:9 but more pixels > less pixels.

Well, had gotten mine on july 4th and I killed it about a week ago. Decided to take my monitor home from the office, and when I plugged it in I had a static like display. Took it back to the office and had the same issue, Opened her up and nothing was wrong on the inside, and then a random replugging in caused the monitor to work. I was excited and decided never to unplug this monitor ever again, but I came into work this morning and it again has static.


It looks like the monitor is shifting each line some ammount since the colors on the screen are what it should be showing, but there is no pattern to it. About 50 power cycles off the power block, nothing has fixed it frown.gif

Looks like my pretty monitor has become a 300 dollar paperweight.

I had an AMD HD6870 and it worked fine with my monitor. Today I decided to upgrade to a 7970 at Micro Center (30 min away). I get home and The bios and windows has green lines everywhere. I call Diamond and AMD and it was pointless. Then I realized the 7970 only had a dual link DVI-I port. SO I returned it and got the Zotac GTX 680 w/4GB. I plugged it in and I'm still having the same problem. I plugged it into both ports on the 680 and nothing is working. Can anyone please help me?
