I used an unsupported 4830 so I bet your 5850 will be fine

Do not use tap water to clean the screen unless you want streaks

Would they replace or fix one with a broken internal power issue
post #2745 of 3508
Okay finally getting off my lazy ass and posting a review.

Took bigclothcraft (BCC) over a week to get the monitor to me, because someone thought they sent me an email asking for more info (address confirmation, customs, etc) but no one actually did.

Anyways. Once the order finally went through, I asked them to ship the monitor with extra bubble wrap on the outside, and hooray they listened.
The entire monitor box was put into some sort of form fitting foam envelope. Kinda cool, it wasnt just typical bubble wrap.

Here is the monitor the day it arrived (October 23rd, 2012):




Came with the typical Welltronics 110-240V adapter. BCC included a euro style cable with a US adapter. I decided to just use a spare cable I had from an old PSU.



Here is how the stock stand is attached. Its fastened by only one screw to the steel (I think its steel) pivot point that allows it to tilt up and down:


A shot of the most noticeable piece of dust stuck behind the glass:


Second most noticeable piece of dust + a scratch on the PLASTIC bezel:


Last noticeable piece:


STREAKS! Streaks freaking behind the glass panel! Impossible (for me) to notice under normal use though:



Final shot, my setup:



So its been over a month now since I've been using the monitor (minus the week of Hurricane Sandy where I lost power).
No major issues have occurred, and it still works very well.

Issues checklist:
Backlight bleed: minimal
Dead/stuck pixels: none
Dust: 3 very noticeable specks, SEVERAL other smaller specs, but hard to notice normally.
"Test screen" color lines: happened once when computer was waking up. Haven't happened since.
Buzzing: none
BIOS: DOES show BIOS with my ASUS GTX 560 DC I (non-Ti)

Would I recommend these monitors? Hard to say... I'm pretty paranoid thanks to this thread.
Would I recommend getting a model with glass? NO. Its really convenient and allows me to clean the monitor using straight up Windex and not feel bad. But without the glass, my display panel would basically be flawless.

The tempered glass piece really shows what kind of crappy QC these monitors go through. It looks like someone got lazy and just took a wet paper towel and gave the glass a quick wipe before mounting it. Sigh.

post #2747 of 3508
Well I got a response in from the vendor i bought my shimian from and he said it may possibly be the power supply and many US customers replace it with

http://www.ebay.com/itm/24V-5A-AC-Adapter-Charger-For-Effinet-EFL-2202W-FY2405000-LCD-Monitor-4-pin-Tip-/230838320475

Has anyone replaced their power block with one from a US company? Was hoping to find something I could potentially get a warranty with or be able to return if it doesn't work.

PandaSPUR did you get the version with tempered glass?
post #2749 of 3508
Does anyone know if I can use a DVI-D dual link male to HDMI female adapter with the LITE version? As long as the HDMI cable is 1.4a standard it should be able to display 2560x1440, correct? Thanks in advance for your response.
