I posted this in the review thread, but figured I would also asked here since it's smaller and Shimian specific (if I am spamming, then mod go ahead and delete).

Thanks to the threads on here, I'm going to order at least one Shimian QH270-IPSBS soon (hopefully today).

I was looking at their compatibility chart and see that my graphics card is not listed. I was curious if someone could help me determine if the ATI Radeon™ HD 4200 Series will support this monitor?

I'm pretty sure the card came with the motherboard as I just have a pretty stock HP computer from Best Buy (n00b i know). It does have the requisite DVI Dual Link port in the back and according to my googling it should support up to 2560x1600.

I'm thinking it will work fine and am planning to give it a go but would love to get a second opinion. Anyone?

Take a look at the DVI port on the card to see if it looks like a DVI-I (Dual Link) or DVI-D (Dual Link) ports as shown here on wikipedia:

From my understanding not all of the ATI 4200 series has DVI dual-link ports... only the ATI/AMD 5000 series and up have it for sure...

I checked the port on my card and it is a DVI-D (Dual Link) port. According to the Ebay listings this is the one that is required for the Shimian so I'm gonna go ahead and order one.

Thanks for your help!

Hey guys. Thinking of picking up the IPSBS model with speakers but I've got a question. How exactly are they ran? I know like HDMI runs audio and video but the IPSBS model doesn't have HDMI so how are the speakers hooked up? I wanted this model to reduce desk clutter. Can anyone with his model comment on the quality of the speakers?

Hi guys,
I've been following this thread and read almost all 377 pages of posts before deciding to go for it. Before that, i was thinking of getting a Samsung S27A750(3D 120hz) or Dell U2711(ips). Both of those were quite expensive compared to the alternatives that i found out from people on this forum.

So long story short, I bit the bullet and ordered a Shimian as well.
BUT, it turns out there is a new version out there. It's called QH270-IPSI and it's only available from ta_planet at the moment but i'm sure more versions of it will come soon.

It's a tempered glass version with a new frame. Also the tempered glass is inside the frame(bezel) and not level with it.
They say it is guaranteed not to have any dust particles this way. I'm not sure how or why it effects the dust issue but it think it looks better.

I was gonna go for the crossover since i liked the stand of it more and it had 380cm/m2 brightness compared to 350(Shimian) but it was way too expensive for the same specs.
I'm paying $380 for tempered (dust free) and pixel perfect version of shimian where as crossover pixel perfects are $400+ atm(without the glass).

Here is the link if you wanna take a look at it.


And the seller "Kinam" is super friendly and responds very quickly even though it seems like he is quite busy.

I'll make new posts with pictures when i receive the monitor.

I ordered a Shimian IPSMS from ta_planet. It was also shipped today. Estimated delivery time is the 23rd.

A little concern i have:
I asked "ta_planet/Kinam" three times if they could and if they would make a pixel test before shipping.
LIke Pengasus said "ta_planet/Kinam" is super friendly and answered very quick but the part about a pixel test is still unanswered and wasn't even mentioned in his mails.
