Do you guys think that the GTX 670 2gb version will handle this monitor and max games the most demanding I believe Ill be playing is like Battlefield 3.

Other games:
Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, WoW, Guild Wars 2 and my wife on Sims lol

Would i benefit from the superclocked 4gb version?

Ill be using the i5 3750k

You will be fine with a single 670, with good frame rates, although 60+fps in battlefield 3 on ultra with AA will be a close call

Just got my IPSI with tempered glass yesterday evening and I must say this thing is awesome! Ordered on the 4th of July through BigClothCraft. It didn't get shipped until the 9th because I originally ordered the IPSB and BCC contacted me to ask if it was ok to ship the IPSI version instead. Either one was fine, I just assumed he shipped the "I" version out to everyone now that the "B" version is discontinued.

Shipping only took ~3 days to get to Canada, I missed the first delivery attempt which was on Friday(ugh). I had the package marked as gift with a value of $80 and I had to pay $24 for taxes/duties.

Anyway, coming from a 23" TN 1080p monitor, I must say the Shimian is impressive. It just towers over my old monitor. Colors are fantastic and backlight bleeding is almost non-existant. My roommate and I tried to find dead/bright pixels and we both failed to do so. Since it was the tempered glass version, I ended up with a couple tiny specks of dust between it and the panel. The largest one being an inch from the top-right corner and only visible on a white screen, so I'm not complaining.

The only downside I can find is that now I need to find a bigger desk. cryingsmiley.gif

No it's pretty much the fake chinese scam variant of amazon. Lots of the stuff on there is definitely misleading.

Hi all smile.gif
I just got this monitor today. Shipping from Korea to Italy took 4 working days and i paid ~70 usd of custom charges + 300 usd for the monitor itself. A fair price i think overall.

Here are a couple of pictures i took, i will do some kind of review if i have time on the weekend.

The monitor arrived in its box wrapped in some bubble plastic... not much i think but enough to protect it since the cardbox was not damaged.

From the bottom
001.jpg

Up front
002.jpg


Let's get the blubble wrap out of the way smile.gif
Up front
003.jpg

Back side is just the same
004.jpg

Left side
005.jpg

Right side
006.jpg

A nice handle on top
007.jpg

008.jpg


The monitor is quite safely packed between two styrofoam spacers, plus a foam wrap
009.jpg

Inside the box
010.jpg


DVI cable, it seems of good quality, i hope i wont have to change it
011.jpg012.jpg

Power cord, luckily i have 230 v here so i wont need any adapters, plus i love schuko plugs
013.jpg 014.jpg 015.jpg

The stand is very very glossy and had a couple of smudges
016.jpg017.jpg

Very glossy!
018.jpg

The monitor as well is the glossy kind
020.jpg

From the side
021.jpg

Nice logo
022.jpg

Up front
023.jpg

The only regulation available is inclination:
024.jpg025.jpg

The back
026.jpg

Various labels... i think the third one tells you that less than 5 pixel in the center square is ok
027.jpg 028.jpg 029.jpg

Controls, only working ones are the brightness + -
030.jpg

Connections:
031.jpg

And status led

Hope this was helpful.

There have been posts about fixing the bleeding via fixing the metal enclosure that the panel is screwed into. Apparently the amount of light being let out by the backlight is uneven and causing the bleeding. Poke around these threads. I haven't heard of any really good successes on these forums.

Great info guys, thanks but a bit confusing to me.
I'm about to jump on the Achieva, but have a couple of questions??
Do I have it correct that this monitor make the vesa wall mount easy to hook up?
And why do so many folks prefer the tempered glass, when the reflection seems
to present problems...What is the advantage to the glass?? thanks
