Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 10

post #91 of 3508
Just got mine in today!! Works perfectly with no stuck or dead pixels that I can see.... Only came in a thing lair of bubble wrap though. Only thing I am disappointed with and Ill try to show in pictures is that all around the bezel there are little dents like they put the bezel on wrong or too tight. You can only see in light though... :./

All around this monitor is amazingly beautiful!! I love it I will never go to TN again...

Does anyone else have the little dents all the way around?

I purchased from dcsamsungmall and both of my monitors were in boxes which were bubble wrapped together. No damage here

I wonder if someone can help me.

One of my fellow forum users in the UK has received their AS screen today but using the supplied dual link cable the screen doesn't display a thing; no bios screen, nothing at all.

Using a single link cable it displays a garbled set of coloured vertical lines and that's it.

Do you think it's simply a faulty dual link cable that was supplied?

Hello :-) mine :-(

Tried it on my mates GTX 260 , got this, not good is it frown.gif

Wouldnt fire up with a dual link dvi , but got this with a normal dvi.

Still going to wait and see what a new cable does.

Does anybody know of a way to disassemble the Tempered Glass Shimian monitor? A few days after getting it my monitor developed a stuck dark blue pixel near the middle of the monitor and with my OCD it is annoying the hell out of my. So much that I am near the point where I am considering purchasing another Shimian monitor seeing as how they are almost $100 cheaper than when I first got mine. It would be pretty sweet to have 2 27" IPS screens on a dual monitor stand but I have many other things that I planned on buying.
I remember reading about somebody that picked up the glass and blew compressed air in to blow away the dust, anybody know anything more about that?

Other than that one defective pixel out of 4,000,000 pixels, I am a happy Shimian monitor owner!

Could be a faulty DVD-D cable, or maybe inside something got loose that connects that cable to the panel / board... Before you open it, I would try another dvi-d cable.

What video card you got? Be sure that you dont run it from a 'm' (mobile / laptop) card and some of the AMD 5xxx series dont seem to be supported...

Bought the monitor on Saturday night around 10pm and got the monitor in on Friday morning, well packaged and looks like perfect-pixel to me. I haven't done any major tests except the simple change the background color to green, blue, black, etc. and see if there are any dead pixels and it does not appear so. Some pictures here also

no offense but why do people do these tests? Mine doesn't have any dead or stuck pixels either that I know of so why do these tests? If I end up seeing one and now knowing where it is I'll be able to look for it in the future which would drive me crazy. It is not like if you found any they will replace it.
