Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 36

post #351 of 3508
I am sooo close to purchasing a Shimian Lite but i am not really sure because I do not want a monitor that breaks within a few months. Since it is a "koreamonitor" i am think that it's made buy a 5-year old but then i remember that it's made by LG for companies such as Apple so the risk of it breaking down should not be any higher for these monitors than the risk of an Apple Cinema Display or the Dell u2711 breaking? Right?

You have to convince me to buy one!

The panel is made by LG but the rest of the components aren't so while the panel itself probably shares the same risk of failing as the Apple or Dell the rest of the components, the PCB, backlight, chassis and so on will be of much inferior quality that the Apple and Dell's of this world. However that being said these monitors are also a lot cheaper so you just have to weigh up factors involved. It's a hell of a lot cheaper than the aforementioned brands but there's obviously a compromise to be made in terms of quality.

Okay, so i guess that the problems people have with flickering or yellowish displays are caused by other components then the panel? Or is it just bad luck...

Flicker is probably internal component issues. Yellowish display would be a reason why the panel in that person's display wasn't a A+ panel.

I don't have any noticeable discoloration on my Achieva monitor. I've been reading about this discoloration on PCBank monitors and was not aware it was a widespread issue with Achievas, but in any event, I'm not seeing it in mine, and my monitor wasn't tested for perfect pixels or screen defects prior to sending (only that it was not DOA).

Just an FYI to everyone, The korean ipses all use the same grade panels. In this case it means that any X panel issue with a Catleap also applies to PCBanks, Achievas, Crossovers, and etc. Panel X issues with an Achieva also applies to the rest as well.

My notifications are working so I didn't realise you'd replied. Soz.

The yellow/blue tint some people are reporting it just down to the fact these are A- panels after all that the likes of Apple and Dell rejected. The flicker/un-even backlight issues are down to the internal components not the panel itself.

I have quite a bit of yellow light in the lower left corner, and lower middle of the screen, sometimes its not visable at all, but on dark screens in movies and things its very very anoying. Im trying to make a video and see if the seller will issue me a new monitor.

I think as far as the components go there is a difference with each generation that is built in South Korea. First wave overclocked and used hardware that could handle it. Second wave couldn't overclock and perhaps - just perhaps the quality A- panels were all finally being sold off on eBay. Now that the demand hasn't fallen off I suspect the parts will get cheaper and the panels worse since they cannot keep up with demand.Is there such a thing as B+ panels? Maybe that's what's creeping onto eBay.

The flip side is panels with full warranties will start to show domesticly for a lot less than what was available before and with warranties (easily fufilled vs. sending it back to S Korea)

ocing has nothing to do with the panel's grade.
