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?

Why would you get tempered glass? The dust issue is pretty bad. Unless you want the extra build quality.

i was planning on picking up an achieva shimian until i saw this:



some people have been telling me that this monitor is dvi-d-only and others have been saying that dvi-i works fine. i obviously don't know anything about either display ports but i do know that my 7950 only has a (dual link) DVI-I port!

Can someone (with a korean monitor like this one and a GPU with a dual link DVI-I) please tell me if this monitor is compatible with my 7950s DVI-I port? thank you!

First impressions from my 2x shimian build. Bezels could be smaller. Even against one another i wish they were closer. They could respond more dependably: Both monitors are attached to a 7970 (one via dual link dvi, the other via displayport adapter to dual link dvi) and they've been behaving well lately, but sometimes one won't turn on upon reboot. Both still work, but sometimes I'm sad they're not perfect. I guess for two 27" 1440p monitors @ $530 i'm still very happy.

I think the CrossOver 27Q LED has less bezel and more screen. And the white back looks sexy compared to the ACHIEVA's black.

Has anyone tried taking apart their IPSI to try to get the dust out from under the glass?

Green-sum and BCC are both reliable sellers if that's what you're asking.

I'd hold out. Monoprice is going to be coming out with a monitor soon, and once they get the kinks out of the 27" iMac process (laminating screen to bezel) and that market normalizes, prices should come down for the K-screens as well. So this is basically the worst time to buy one. Three months should make a real difference.

And definitely buy from a company in your home country whenever possible.

hoooly crap. I read through almost every page of this thread and others. Just pulled the trigger on a shimian from bigclothcraft. He seems to have the best feedback concerning these monitors out of green-sum, red-cap and dreamseller: only one negative review in the last 12 months. Now I'm crossing my fingers. Will post here once it arrives!
