I got my Shimian.. it is absolutely beautiful. It makes both of my Dell monitors look awful! Time to throw these two up on Craigslist and buy two more Shimians! =D

Nice looking setup, I noticed the same thing with my shimian side by side with my old 24". The DPI makes the shimian so much more crisp, and the IPS makes the colors look so much better.

I wouldn't be able to stand your desk setup though, I like my leg room too much!

Oh it's really cramped, I normally use my subwoofer for a foot rest because of it. I'd love to move the PC to the outside of the desk and the sub as well but I have two kids and I fear that something would get dumped inside of my PC. I'll suffer from lack of leg room for now. wink.gif

Just wanted to ask, does anyone think the SquareTrade warranty is worth it? I'm not sure of the durability of the monitors but spending 54 dollars to make sure if any of the LEDs die or if the monitor craps out at all I get back my full purchase price.

Not a bad setup for a student wink.gif

It is always good to have an insurance protection plan on your stuff. I bought 2 squaretrade warranties for both my shimian achievas back in October and I actually have 4 Achievas running on a ati radeon 5870 eyefinity 6 card).

I can't tell what is wrong with the monitors from the picture of the three monitors from your old set. They all look fine...?

I got a Shimian from red-cap about 4 months ago and it has 1 dead pixel in the lower left corner. After calibration the monitor looks pretty damn perfect. I was planning to buy another one from red-cap but I'm trying to understand what went wrong in your setup before I buy another one.

Dunno if this is appropriate to post about in this thread, but I have two Shimian Achievas for sale (locally only) in S.E. Portland, OR (near Hawthorne) if any of you PDX'ers are looking to join the club... $350 per, they really look good... no stuck/dead pixels, one has a bit of BLB on bottom and the other is really quite exceptional.....they're the lite ones (without tempered glass) dual dvi...

http://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/ele/3701848755.html

a good opportunity to check em out before playing the lottery game with ordering it from Korea imo... not gonna offer much of a real discount cuz i think they might sell... who knows though, if they don't in a month i'll try $300, no major hurries to get rid of them though..

The warranty is worth it but as far as I know you can only buy it with pixel perfect ones. p.s. the scalpels are awesome! I got a pair a year ago, best Oakleys I have owned.
