Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 300

post #2991 of 3508
I ordered one of these guys last week after much reading on this forum and others, and received it earlier this week. Ordered from dream-seller, placed my order on Thursday night and he shipped it out the next morning. Fedex estimated Wednesday but I got it about 10 am Monday morning.

No dead pixels, although there are quite a few tiny specs of dust scattered around the screen, only visible on a pure white screen. There is some slight discoloration in the upper left corner, but it's also only visible on a white screen and doesn't effect typical use. There's some bleeding in the lower left corner but it's pretty minor and even in dark scenes in games and movies it's not very noticeable.
Overall I'm really satisfied so far! It's BIG coming from a 21.5" (and going from TN to IPS has made an amazing difference too).

Just joined the forum to share my experience and give back a little; reading this thread helped me pull the trigger on this guy, so thanks everybody.

Here it is fresh out of the box:



I didn't have any problems with it starting up, with either the included cable or one I already had.

The power adapter for my Shimian just went out but I wanted to check before buying if the adapter on ebay (EFL-2202W) will replace the shimian adapter model#lyd2405000. Everything looks like it'll work except I'm not sure on the polarity of the pin-outs so double checking before I pull the trigger on it. Thanks in advance!


edit: I mailed silicon_electronic (seller of the EFL-2202W's) on ebay and they stated they do not have the correct adapter to replace mine. Anyone know what adapter would work with the one I have? frown.gif

Well i got my replacement panel from red-cap really fast! but i'm not quite happy with it. He did say that the QH270 lite was out and more would be coming in a few weeks or choose the isps model which he currently had. So i went with the IPSI (glass version) as opposed to the Lite (non-glass version which I had originally purchased). I should have waited for the lite versions to come in from the factory. Here's why:

1) the replacement monitor did not have a film on the glass like you do when you first purchase a new monitor. Which means I received a used? monitor based on the amount of stuck pixels that I have,
2) my monitor has a slight buzzing sound-- which means that I need to open it up and place tape on the capacitor as illustrated in a post several pages back.

Aside from the 34 stuck pixels and the buzzing monitor, i'm glad that i have a working monitor, just not as perfect as the 1st monitor that I had purchased that had developed a defect 6 days from owning it.

Production date on the monitor is 1.2013 so apparently the monitor buzz hasn't been fixed on newer production batches.







Haven't decided if i'm going to open it up to put some electrical tape on the capacitor, but i did send a message to red-cap. we'll see what happens.

On the plus side: the monitor works, the brushed plastic bezel feels and looks very nice.

Edit:

My monitor makes a pretty noticeable buzzing sound when it tries to look at this image: http://cdn.overclock.net/a/ae/aef75a8c_200006resolutionprimertab3.png

Ah thanks, posted up a pic of mine so maybe someone can chime in on the correct replacement now that it seems the one's I found in various threads won't work. frown.gif

Hi everybody,

I just joined this forum after finding this thread.
I am building a new PC for under 1000, and I am getting a Shimian QH270-IPSI Korean monitor.
Do you think that the Sapphire Radeon HD 7770 GHz with 1GB Memory could handle one of these with light gaming?
I have come from 21.5" 1080P Displays so I can't wait to get my new monitor from red-cap.

Thanks,
The Doolster smile.gif

I'm running a 6850, which I understand performs similarly. Games all run alright; BF3 at 1440p runs about 45 fps on low settings. I'm not sure exactly the typical fps, but it definitely doesn't have a problem running TF2, CSGO, HL2, Portal 2 (any valve game really) excellently. Also New Vegas runs quite well maxed. I'm looking at an upgrade for the new wave of games, but if your just doing some light gaming, I don't think you'll have a problem.
