Mine was here in 2 days since shipping , shipped 8th from Soul and 10th at my door.
I asked the seller to mark it as a gift and value at $200 , worked great didn't pay any duty and no delays.

Guess I'm the unlucky one then frown.gif

I didn't ask the seller for anything specific though.

Yesterday my bookshelf came down from the wall and fell on my monitor (Shimian QH270-lite) ... It tipped over and now there is some backlight bleeding going on on darker backgrounds, as well as a pressure spot that has appeared... Lucky me.

My question to you guys is: Should I open it up?

Is it easy and will it be easy to 'put back together' again? And will it do any good? Is there a plastic layer on the panel that might have been folded? Or is something else going on that's causing the backlight to bleed?
Anything I can try?

Oddest thing though....I though these were "A" and lower graded panels but after the bar code (and on the lil monitor pic) on the back...mine is stamped A+.

A+ eh?

I just bought one of these monitors (Pixel Perfect version from Red-cap) and it's stamped A on the back.

I'm not sure what's the difference between A and A+ is, but mine is also pixel perfect. thumb.gif

I got mine(lite). I bought it from green-sum for US $296. I am glad to say it's almost perfect. No dead/stuck pixels,
pretty even backlight in all range of brightness, no backlight bleeding, no stains, no hair, no yellow/blue tint.
There probably is a tiny speck of dust in the Windows Start button area. It is almost invisible (smaller than a pixel),
I hardly could notice it when I was using a pixel checking software so I will never see it in real life. My previous one
was Yamakasi Catleap and it was awful. It had a huge clear seen yellow tint, uneven backlight across the screen,
two dust specks (2-3 pixel size) in the central area of the non-glass screen. So I had to resell it and bought
another one. The second try was successful and now I can say that my efforts were not in vain.
I like it very much.

Yeah, I previously had a Crossover but this Shimian is much better. The Crossover had a stuck green pixel near the center, the bottom half of the screen had a yellow tint, and the out-of-box calibration was too blue.

This Shimian doesn't suffer from those problems. It has a pretty decent factory calibration. I checked it with a colour meter and it's close to 6500K and gamma is 2.2 out-of-box. However, brightness is way too high. Luckily we can just turn that down with the brightness buttons. It's about two clicks up from minimum brightness to get 120 luminance.

A couple minor things about the Shimian:

1) The top bezel bows down a bit, so a few pixel on the top-center might be covered. You can fix it by opening the display and propping it up with something. I don't think I'm going to bother, it's very minor.
2) The bezel isn't flush with the panel. It has some pinch, so dust can get it there.
3) On a white background I noticed a faint, gray-black bar running across the bottom of the screen. It's very hard to notice because you can't see it dead on, you have to look at it at an angle. I seen this issue being reported with some Catleaps. I think it's a lighting issue and not a problem with the panel itself. Again, it's very minor and I can live with it.

Anyways, I'm not going to press my luck and play the LCD lottery again. This Shimian is great.

All these Korean panels have this bar:

In fact it is not the photo of my display I found it on my local forum but I am pretty sure that everybody can take a picture of his screen with a grey background then increase contrast and clearly see the bar.
It's a feature of this kind of panels.

Yup, that's exactly how it looks. Although it's quite emphasized in that picture, so under normal use it's not that bad.
