Or is the chance i have stuck pixels that low, that i can just order a non pixel perfect..
Im from holland and sending the monitor back to S-Korea is as expensive as the monitor itself...

The pixel perfect guarantee is worth the extra money it I think.

If you're sure you wouldn't like the IPSI, I would suggest getting a lite possibly from red-cap because I'm just about to go to fedex to return mine to dream-seller as it freezes after a minute of use.
Good luck!

Thanks a lot for the information.

I''ll confirm what he said, IPSB no longer exists from what sellers told me when I was buying my monitor back in October. I have an IPSI, a few pages back I posted up a review with a bunch of pics.

I'm hoping my monitor stays good... But so far, after having it for over 2 months, I've only had one issue with it.
It started up with random colored lines one time in November, hasnt happened since.

I'd say the monitor is on about 40% of the time, on standby 59% of the time, and the other 1% of time is when power goes out (circuit breaker trips, hurricane sandy hit, etc).

No buzzing or other weird issues thus far.

Hopefully AMEX will cover me if something does go wrong lol.

So who should I buy this monitor from ? Live in europe
post #2895 of 3508
I bought my ACHIEVA Shimian QH270-Lite from Green-Sum for £229 and was hit by customs for an extra £43.72.

You can't appreciate how good the picture is until you see one of these in person! I hadn't noticed how dull the colours were on my AOC 23.6 inch before now.

Very pleased with the monitor so far, I didn't use the included DVI cable as I had my own. I have one stuck pixel in the upper left corner and a very small amount of backlit bleeding at the top of the screen. I have tried to run those youtube videos that flash the screen quickly to try to 'unstick' them, but not had any success so far, has anyone successfully done this? how long did it take?

I can hear a very slight buzzing if the screen is displaying a lot of white, which I understand is common with these monitors. I shall be contacting the seller about this and seeing what he suggests. I am aware of people opening up these monitors and putting something on the component.

If anyone has any questions go ahead!

Just poping in to remind everyone to avoid red-cap.
I got a PM from another member here who is having the same problem with the screen and the seller basically telling us to f-off

I disagree. The listing states you could still have up to 1 dead pixel with "pixel perfect". You're paying a premium for a non-guarantee.

Most marketed monitors from Dell, LG, Samsung, Benq, etc come with dead pixels whether you like it or not. Sometimes you just can't see them.

1 dead pixel is nothing. I've seen Benq monitors with 3 or more dead pixels on their monitors when they should be checking more vigorously.

The perfect pixel guarantee is worth it because guaranteeing that 1 dead pixel is the most the monitor will have for an extra $40 is an excellent proposition.

Read the specific seller's "pixel perfect" policy first though. I know some say they test by looking at the monitor from standard viewing distance, and if you cant see the dead pixel from that distance, it doesnt count.

Doesnt sound bad, but imo it gives the seller too much leeway to give monitors that actually arent perfect.

same thing happen to me have too look at the policies as it states that you would have to pay for customs I have noticed that green-sum doesn't come up on the UK Ebay so I would buy one from a seller that comes up on your countries Ebay.
