Its two separate things. Achieva just decided to use a bad name for their monitors lol. Achieva monitors come in a few variations: Q270-LITE (no glass), Q270-IPSI (glass inside bezel), Q270-IPSB (flush "edgeless" glass across the front of monitor), Q270-IPSBS (LITE but with more connection options)

They all use IPS panels.

While flickering the light on the front turned from blue to pink (not red) several times. I didn't think much of it until today. I put a new storage hard drive in my pc and had to reboot a couple of times to change bios settings. Now the same thing happens as soon as my desktop is visible after boot. The screen flashes on/off several times and the light goes from blue to pink. I'm starting to worry that this is the beginning of a bigger problem.
thoughts?

I have had mine for about the same time you should have a years warranty if it does get busted always can send it back to get it fixed still waiting on my guy to contact me about where I have to get it delivered to.

Just a reminder for anyone who pruchased from Red-Cap. My screen died from a faulting power supply back in September and red-cap has refused to honor the 1 year coverage.

Word of advice lads... if you find any problems with the screens raise a claim and don't let them run away with it!

Thats what red-cap did with me. I opened the dispute just before my 45 days...he agreed to send me a new screen....45 days passed, nothing in 16 weeks. I get a response every few weeks with some bull**** excuse, but nothing solid.
Paypal, ebay, no one cares. once your 45 days are up, your screwed.

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,

PM me if you ever get one. He told me he would send me a new PCB every week for 8 weeks.

From what I have been seeing, price has been steadily rising. This is because the knowledge of and therefore demand for these monitors is rising, while the supply of A- grade panels remains relatively unchanged. Remember that because these companies rely on a "byproduct", their production capacity is capped by the number of panels they can acquire. I would absolutely recommend buying one of these as soon as you can, because Korean retailers are figuring out that the market for these monitors is relatively inelastic and that they can raise the price and still move units. Good luck!

I don't believe that model has tempered glass.

EDIT: I think I'm just going to settle for a Shimian with tempered glass and DVI input only. Who are the best sellers on eBay?

Hey guys, I finally set up my Shimians and put together my computer, but the monitors aren't responding when I turn the computer on. One is connected via a Sapphire 7970, and another is attached via a displayport to dual link dvi active adapter (also connected to the 7970). I just built the computer so the ssd/hd are bare. This is my first time with dual link dvi so I was wondering if they needed specific drivers or something? I've attempted using the mobo dvi, both dvis from the video card, and the adapter with no success. I'm going to grab an hdmi monitor tomorrow and hopefully that'll allow me troubleshoot further. Any tips on troubleshooting would be really appreciated! I have a dual monitor stand and they look beautiful... I'm sure they'll look even better when they're actually displaying something biggrin.gif

*EDIT*
Used a regular VGA monitor to load up Windows 7 and Catalyst Drivers. Connected both monitors to my 7970 (one via dual link dvi and the other through a displayport to dual link dvi adapter) and now they both work and look great. No issues I can see with the naked eye though still might play around with some color calibration profiles. I ordered from dhsummer (a couple of months ago) for 530 total (2 basic Shimians w/dual link dvi only) and they came within 2-3 days. I have them up on a dual monitor desk mount, which holds both of them quite well. Only thing that worried me a tiny bit was upon booting up the first time the monitor was acting a bit funky, but once it got to Windows it was fine.

I'd recommend against tempered glass. The general experience seems to be that it just traps dust and increases glare. I'd read over this thread if you want to glean some guidance thumb.gif

There are no good sellers on ebay. They're all great if everything works, and will all screw you if you have a problem. All you can do is dispute, dispute, dispute. Sometimes they'll work with you, sometimes they won't.

my flickering on/off seems to be getting worse. at first it was only doing it maybe 3 or 4 times and then the picture would stay on. now it is closer to 10 times before the picture stays.....


for all those reading and discussing which one of these to buy, have you been watching the sale prices on the Dell 2560x1440 models? earlier this week Amazon had the U2713HM for $559. Dell Small Business Australia had the same model for $484. their is a new line of 2560's coming out and it is driving the older models down. the latest Maximum PC magazine has an article predicting a huge increase in the production of this size/resolution in the coming months. meanwhile, the Korean models keep going up in price, and the quality is going down...

just something to think about.
