Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 76

post #751 of 3508
An Achieva Shimian QH270 Lite Pixel perfect model from TAPlanet.

Finally picked up mine from local Fedex office today. Unboxed, plugged it to my 6870 and power brick and booted PC.

1) Took a few seconds to get power plug orientated correctly. It's not quite a four pin square. Close enough to cause mistakes, but two of the pins are slightly further apart that the other two. once you see that, it connects easily.

2) On boot up, the power brick had a solid green light and the monitor led had solid blue, but no picture appeared. Heard windows launch but still no picture. Some slight worry but decided to switch the monitor off and then on again. The windows desktop appeared as if nothing was wrong.

3) My eyes are not the best and I thought I might have to increase the font size, but the sheer clarity of the letters make me able to see a lot better than I expected.

4) Out of the box, I'm not noticing any noticeable color variations.

5) I ordered a pixel perfect Lite model from TaPlanet and it appears to be exactly as advertised. A hand written note was included, certifying it as pixel perfect.

6) I am coming from a 1366x768 18.5" monitor (don't laugh), and when I started a couple games, they ran at 1366x768 filling the whole screen. COH and Supreme Commander 2. Reset in game menu and they are now running at native res. The point is, it appears you CAN game at lower resolutions and have the use of the full screen. The images will not be as sharp but will be usable for those with lower spec video cards.

7) Can see full boot menu.

8) Power brick gets quite warm. This is a 110-240 Volts 50/60 Hz model. I had to use a PC power supply cord as the included one was for Korea. A Welltronics AC/DC Adapter (WTS24055). We will see.

9) No drooping of top bezel.

10) Light bleed is minimal.

11) Am running at about 50% brightness levels.

12) Stand is more than adequate and easy to adjust tilt.

I am very happy with this purchase. The service from the seller, TaPlanet, was excellent. Four days from Korea with an additional three days correcting Fedex's screw-up in charging me duty & Vat. Computer stuff is duty free & Vat free here.

If something goes wrong would it ruin the brick, the monitor, or both?
I would think feeding 110V to a 220V spec'd power brick would have input currents twice as large as designed to handle. maybe that is why some here are reporting hot power bricks. Works fine for a while but the extra heat causes accelerated failure rates.

Has anyone else had issues attaching the stand? The screws heads on mine get stuck on the plastic and don't allow them to be screwed in completely. This causes the monitor to rock forwards and backwards on the stand and won't really stand up on its own.

Ordered from dream-seller. He shipped yesterday yesterday by DHL. Is it overnight once they ship? Does anyone know?

My Shimian got shipped on 26th (Tuesday), I hope it will arrive tomorrow (29th, Friday), otherwise I'll probably have to wait for Monday.

I have 2 of those bricks now. I have tested the temperature - use correlation, and they are hottest at maximum brightness when a monitor is quickly changing pictures, such as playing a colorful video - so basically at maximum current draw. If you use low brightness, as most of us do (I use the 3rd lowest brightness level on both of my monitors) and just browse the web, the bricks will be just lukewarm-to-warm and normal.

I seriously doubt it'll arrive that fast... It'll probably take a few days 3-5? I bought mine from dream-seller also and he shipped it out on the 28th. (It's still in transit. Just follow the tracking number they sent you)
