I have a strange issue.
1st, the rig,
Asrock z77 Extreme4 Motherboard
Intel i3770k Ivy Bridge CPU
Corsair 850w PSU
GTX 570
16gb RAM
I have two monitors. The Shimian, connected via DVI, and also a BenQ G2400WD 24" 1980x1200 monitor connected via HDMI.
Here is what happens; for only video that is local to my machine that I play (I have tried .mpeg, .avi, and .m4v so far), it "fades out" somehow on my Shimian monitor. When I play it back on the BenQ, it looks fine. But then I move it back to the shimian and it fades out again. Almost like it slightly desaturates.
Here is a short video demonstrating the issue
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjmbD-M8PAI
All other video is fine, it's just video files on my comptuer that have an issue. I've tried playing in both quicktime and windows media player. They play fine in other software (like Picasa and LIghtroom).

Wow that's puzzling to say the least... Seems like it may be some type of software issue (seeing as it keep the faded colors when you move it over). Does it fade on the Shimian if the BenQ isn't plugged in?

Ended up figuring it out this afternoon.

568

In the NVIDIA control panel, there is an option called "VIdeo --> Adjust Video Color Settings".

For some reason my one monitor was set to function from the video card. The 27" monitor however was set to take video settings from the NVIDIA card and the brightness was cranked up to 90%.


I'm not sure how / why that happened, but I changed it and now it's consistent.

Thanks for the folks posting their thoughts and reviews of this monitor. I was deciding between the Shimian and Catleap and opted for the Shimian for it's slightly lower price and the ease of installing a 3rd party VESA mount.

I ordered from redcap on Ebay as they had the lowest price at $290. Shipping was amazingly fast, I ordered the evening on July 4th and it arrived on the afternoon of July 6th on the East Coast! Did some basic pixel testing with the wife and did not find it any dead pixels. Monitor has been fantastic for the price, upgraded from a 24" Dell 2408.

Now the only thing I am waiting for is the stand I ordered from Monoprice. Ordered the same time yet it takes UPS 5 business days to get it here. The included stand is very cheap but honestly it doesn't bother me much anymore. If I had to do over again I would have skipped the expense of the 3rd party mount.

I ordered a Shimian from redcap as well last Sunday. I hope to get it in the next two days smile.gif

Can you link me to this monitor? I think I like the $290 price tag much more and your recent order makes me confident about making a purchase with this seller smile.gif Thanks in advance!

You can search Ebay using " 27" Shimian" and you'll see all the ones on sale.

I think all the highly rated vendors are legit. I look at the negative reviews and see the number of positive/negative reviews in the past 1-6 months. There's just the small chance you could receive a dud monitor.

I ended up going with the lowest priced highly-rated vendor and that was redcap at the time I bought it.

Has anyone tested out the ISPMS model with the HDMI with there PS3 and movies? I know those are all meant for 1080p, but does it look like total crap or is a playable on the 27"?
post #880 of 3508
Hey y'all,

Just got my monitor. Didn't have bubble wrap around it but it's perfect, I didn't find any dead/stuck pixels. The stand is holding up well and is keeping up the display straight, one thing I worried about, hence choosing the Shimian. Lastly, I got it for $290.

I am currently trying to calibrate it with a Spyder 4. In the settings it's asking me for the Gammut - options given are "unknown" / "normal gammut" / "wide gammut" and what type of back light technology it's using - options given are "Fluorescent (CCFL) / "White LED" / "RGB LED".

Do any of you know the answer to those two questions?

Thanks!
