That's laughable. $400 for a 1440p S-IPS panel is a bargain. Especially when a Dell U2711 is much pricier but has inferior image quality because of the AG.

Wait... what? Lol. After reading all your posts about how great this monitor is? You crack me up.

the U2711 was on sale for $489 a month ago. i just posted the new Monoprice S-IPS for $351. i'm not really sure how $400 for a cheaply built monitor sold by an idividual on ebay is a "bargain". especially when that same cheaply built ebay monitor was $285 three months ago. then you read the last 10-15 pages of this thread and all the different people having issues with it and having to jump through 700 hoops in order to get it resolved with several eventually turning it over to their credit card company or paypal...


but then again you did try and convince me that there wasn't any 4k media content out there and we wouldn't see "pointless" 4k monitors catch on any time in the new future...

Hey guys, is buzzing sound from my Shimian normal when reading text on white background? The frequency of buzzing sound changes depending on font size.

How noticeable is the buzzing? Most monitors buzz a little.

It's subtle, but easy to hear from sitting distance. You can't not notice it while reading an article on Wikipedia, for example.

When it's some other page (like this forum), it's completely quiet.

I just want to have peace of mind. It can buzz as much as it wants as long as I'm assured it won't die on me.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, my Catleap buzzes slightly. I can actually make a whole range of different buzzes, depending on what's on screen and (more importantly) what refresh rate I have my monitor set at. The higher the refresh rate, the higher and more pronounced the buzz is.

Oh, I got my Catleap back in March 2012 ("2B" version) and it's still going strong.
