Well some close up shots and some viewing angles shots from side to side, also some with the glare.
My main concern is that the tempered glass models will have more glare than the non glass versions. I love my lite version, i ordered a tempered glass model but i got sent a lite version. The seller refunded me $25 so i got my lite for $310 biggrin.gif
The bezel on the lite seems to have more glare than the actual screen rolleyes.gif
Im building a watercooled powermac G5 case so my other 6860 is not installed yet. I havent even tested the performance of 2 6870s in xfire @ 1440p but ive read that dual 6870s equal around the performance of a 680. that pretty good i think cause i got my 2 6870s for $280!!! thumbsupsmiley.png
Ill probably create a build log here and over at tonymacx86 soon.

I tried my best to angle the monitor towards direct light. The glare isn't too bad as long as you have something bright on the screen and you don't have light pointing right at it. Hope these help. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for a build log.

Here's a comparison between the glare on the glass and the glare on just the glossy panel on my mom's MacBook. It's much easier too see the reflection of the lamp in person, though the glass is definitely worse.

Gaming performance isn't too bad for what I play (usually Minecraft or GTA IV), and that's with both monitors connected to one 6870. I might throw my 5450 in there for the second monitor eventually.

Just read through the majority of this thread (damn that took a while rolleyes.gif ) and I'm 99% sold on the Shimian, but I have a simple question.

Based out of your experience, who are the most recognized/best sellers of these? I've seen a lot of red-cap and dream-seller, but are there any other good sellers?
Also, I noticed the shipping for these seem to be real snappy, I wonder how long it'd take for it to get shipped to me in Hawaii thumb.gif
post #323 of 3508
There are several good sellers for these monitors, Greensum-Redcap-Dreamseller-Accesorieswhole. I dont think you can go wrong with any of them. I know Accesorieswhole does check all monitors and test them before he ships them, i dont know about the other sellers.

I'm a little confused trying to figure out what the difference is between the QH270-Lite and the QH270-IPSB is. The lite is about $300 for pixel perfect and the IPSB is $666 for pixel perfect, could someone help me out here? I tried searching the thread but I didn't see anything posted about the differences.
post #327 of 3508
The QH270-IPSB is glass and it should be around $350 max
post #328 of 3508
That is what I thought. The price was $666 for the perfect pixel on ebay and I just thought that this had to be something different than the typical monitor or something, it must have more to do with the fact that the seller now only has 2 left in stock or something.
post #329 of 3508
are you talking about red-cap? i just ordered 3 of the glass ones and i have them in eyefinity right now. i got them for $300

Yes i can it works without problem but after seeing how awesome 2560x1440 looks i don't want to tongue.gif
Gonna buy 2 x GTX670 to power it in that res , ordering first one this week thumb.gif

P.S I was watching my Vram usage in BF3 at 2560x1440 with Ultra preset and MSAA turned off and it's basically maxed on my 590 , can someone with a 2GB GTX670 or 680 check how far does 2GB go in BF3 at this res in Ultra but with 4 x MSAA please.
