Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 337

post #3361 of 3508
As of this morning, my Shimian only displays an all-gray screen. Other monitor is working fine, so it's not my PC/video card.

Can you even get these things repaired in the US?

Just got this bad mamajamma off craigslist for the insanely good price of $200! The seller even had it hooked up to demonstrate that it had no dead pixels or issues when I came to pick it up. Apparently he used it a couple times but didn't have the hardware to really run it properly. Works for me, $200 and ~80 mile round trip, I couldn't be happier!

The internals in these are shared between quite a few monitors so I can only assume any decent TV repair shop should be able to handle it... You might have to explain what it is but once they get part numbers and what not I'd be amazed if they couldn't handle it.

I wanted to post a quick update after using the monitor for 8+ hours, toss my impressions out there.

EDIT I deleted my overclocking figures, still need to adjust it so... I'll update this spot when I have more solid numbers

Overall I'm extremely happy with the monitor, the only "struggle" I had was mounting it on my wall-arm, the screws for the VESA mount are exceptionally short. If my monitor were sitting at an appreciable height I'd be more concerned (where it is now it's about 3 inches from my desk).

As far as the transition to 1440P, I dig it. Earlier this year I had a pre-release 4K monitor for a few weeks and the impression that left me with was that the world just isn't ready for that resolution. Icons, textures, photos, etc... all looked either laughably tiny or extremely pixelated. 1440P seems to be a happy medium right now, I had to adjust font sizing and icon sizes a bit, but overall it was pretty painless.

I played a solid 4 hours of Bioshock Infinite... holy crap is that a beautiful game, and it looked great at the higher resolution.

Basically, this is easily the best $200 I've spent in quite some time! But I would have no issue paying the retail pricing for this either. In fact I plan to do that very soon for two additional monitors (finally I get the epic iRacing monitor setup I've been craving!)

Welcome to the club egoods!

I've been using my Shimian for about 2 years , plus a couple of months! ... damn good stuff I have to say, although I don't play any fancy games with it much these days, just enjoying the experience.

By the way, check out some of these impressive 4K videos if you get the chance ... http://timescapes.org/default.aspx

Thanks for the warm welcome!

The more I use this monitor the more I like it, I do have a slight bit of backlight bleed through, but I plan to correct that in the near future (I'll also be de-bezeling once I go multi-monitor so probably tackle both at that point).

I've been watching a good bit of high-res content, it almost reminds me of the first time I saw 1080P... OK maybe that's over-stating it a little bit but I've been thoroughly impressed. The Samsung 4K monitor I used earlier this year left me feeling "meh", I like this setup a good-bit more that's for sure.

Mine has done the same thing since forever and It's been fine for the 2 years or so that I've owned it. If you don't mind powering it off and on then there's nothing to worry about.

I've had 3 of them for over 2 years. Just came back to this thread to look up a random flicker in 1 panel. Not a full blackout, it just flutters for a few frames. Happens once every day or two for maybe a full second. I'm thinking it's just the cable. It's stretched a good distance at a weird angle. Might just be causing a communication dropout here or there.
