I was talking about the IPSI model reviewed above by Xenocide23. It has black plastic front with "hairline" brushed metal look, but it appears that it's only brushed on the front and not the edge parts of the bezel that curve in toward the screen.

Here's a photo of IPSI from a guy on another forum:

Oh sorry man I missed that. Bummer I thought they all had the same bezel that looks really nice. Although is that one with a glass screen it looks like a mirror. Mine has plenty of glare but I don't think its that much.

It appears that these companies react very quickly to customer reactions. Not like the majors who produce a product with a long life cycle and take it or leave it.

The one that has a full glass surface is IPSB (I have one). The IPSI is a new version of a tempered glass ShiMian - it has tempered glass front under the bezel, and the bezel has that brushed look versus the shiny plastic. I guess both have equal dust problem, as the glass is not installed in a clean room. Originally it was thought that the IPSI was not going to have as much dust, but then in updated listings, the two are classified as equivalent. Both are made for internet cafes and such, so that the front is durable. I think the brushed look is more classy and wish that they'd update Lite versions with it too.

In defense of the tempered glass dust issue though, vast majority of it is unnoticeable, even on white background. I only have one piece that I can really see that I have since come to terms with, because it was cheap and the overall monitor appearance is gorgeous.

I agree I really like the look of that new bezel. That said I am very happy with my monitor as well. I got the non glass one. Really took my computing experience to a new level.

open the glass panel shimian IPSB monitor to remove dust more difficult because is use doubel tape
easier to open apple cinema display because it uses a magnet for installation glass as Plug N Play biggrin.gif

It arrived quickly but instead of receiving the IBSB model that I thought I would receive I opened my box to find the IPSI model. In addition, the monitor had fairly strong blue tint to the image that I had to adjust using a new color profile. Lastly there appears to be one dead/stuck pixel and one area (2-3 pixels) that are either dead or under dust (I can't tell which). Overall I'm satisfied with the monitor but still with I received the glass to glass monitor I was originally expecting.
Edit: When I contacted the seller he said that the IPSI model is the new updated model so the other tempered glass version may be discontinued in the near future.

Fault Achieva Shimian give "IPSI" model gwith "IPSB" box and sticker biggrin.gif
maybe this is new IPSB model with glass inside old IPSB model with glass outside
glass outside easier to open even if extra care,than inside glass to clean dust
I personally prefer IPSB glass outside because similar Apple Cinema Display thumb.gif

Finally bit the bullet on this. Picked it over the yamasaki because of easier vesa mounting and over the PCBank 2700 because of build quality and over Crossover because of price.

Hopefully, I don't get any dead pixels or whine. *crosses fingers*

Me too. Which seller did you buy from? I bought from red-cap.

Good luck to us both. smile.gif

Grabbed one from Dream-Seller. He was the cheapest. Really wanted the tempered glass one but was too afraid of dust and can't be bothered to take it apart. Hopefully mine is only A- because the panel had a scant few dead pixels (many just go away with the proper method). Really excited. Have a Dell U2312HM but always wanted something a little bigger but couldn't justify the cost.

WOW ... got mine in today! ... looks really great at first use ... can't see any dead/stuck pixels or any problems at all!!

Got it from seller 'Bigclothcraft' for £210 total and had to pay £13.97 for customs duty , not unexpected.

Here's some quick snaps ...
