Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 47

post #461 of 3506
I've also read about more problems with Crossovers than Achieva ShiMian monitors, judging by the long Crossover thread. For a while I was considering a PCBank monitor for supposed higher contrast and response time, but then there were a lot of problematic monitors received, so in the end I went with a tempered glass Achieva ShiMian for $320, and I'm happy with it. It is aesthetically attractive, easy to clean, cheap, and has good colors (no yellow tinting or bad backlight bleed - my particular panel).

Now here's the fun of the power bricks, some say 100-220v, some say 190v-220v, some say 220v, and some say 220v but are actually 100-220v.

pfft for the most part you just need to get a normal pc power cable and plug it in, what voltages does your power brick do anyways?

So i got sick of the cheap plastic stand for my monitor, and i built a new one. rolleyes.gif

This is made of inch and a half thick solid black walnut. It's rock solid, very heavy, and fully adjustable. I have tilting, height, rotation, and turning.
